Optical Illusions... oh it's so cool that this Kinda Eclectic stamp set  has this cool sun that MOVES!  Try it - move your smartphone or mouse up and down and the image looks like it's moving!  Stamped on the Basic Grey cardstock base, this Gold Encore inked sun adds a cool metallic accented optical illusion to this hand-stamped card. 
This Confetti Celebrations Designer Series Paper is pretty stylish!  Stamping the 'Thinking of You' from the Sassy Salutations rubber stamp set in Basic Grey ink.  Frame the sentiment with the leafs from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in the Pear Pizzazz ink pad - this was paired together thanks to the help of my Color Coach! When ever I'm stumped on colors or a project, looking up the colors on the Color Coach helps me to pair and rethink a project - who knew! 
 
Die Cut and 'frame' the sentiment using the Apothecary Accents Framelits dies on the Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Off set it and adhere it with dimension using the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.

It is always in good form to cheer and bless others.  My 8 year old daughter and I discussed how I was known, growing up and in school, for being the first to greet and befriend a new student.  In high school a friend who'd been new in 6th grade wrote a note about how it helped him and he always noted that I was always nice - wow, that was 6 years later as we graduated!!  See what an act of kindness and love can do to those who receive a hand-stamped card in the mail - just because you are thinking of them!

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
