Snow-much fun hand-stamped water colored CardMaking tutorial

Winter wishes... scenes of star filled skies, beautiful soft colors, sparkling snowflakes as the fall to the ground.. even though I live in Southern California - the idea of a white winter brings a smile to my face.  Creating a hand-crafted card that embodies the beauty and wonder of winter is a fun way to toast the Christmas Season.  See how fun and easy it is to create this hand-stamped Christmas card and send a little winter to those you love.

Stamping this stunning scene from the White Christmas stamp set using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad on the Whisper White card stock.  Why use the Memento ink pad?  Well, Stazon ink pad and Photopolymer (clear stamps) do not mix - the ink doesn't transfer and it can cause a rip in the stamp.  Using the Memento ink pad gives me a sharp image and is ideal in water coloring.
 
Create a water colored, streaked sky using the Soft Sky ink pad and the Aqua Painter.  I love the tones this can create on your hand-crafted cards.  The Pear Pizzazz creates a cute holiday banner.
Deliver a sparkling card using the Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details glitter adhesive.  Less is more.  Here creating a 3D snowflake is easy.  Simply place a small drop and pull up - the glitter will dry in a raised image.  Adding a 'snowflake' falling towards this cute polar bear (reminds me of the Coke bears) for a fun accent.
 
Frame out with silver accents.  The stunning All is Calm Designer Series Paper sparkling silver foil patterned sheet.  Add additional shine to this card using the 1/8" Silver Ribbon.  Layer all these over the Soft Sky card stock base and you have a lovely winter hand-stamped Christmas card.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
