Using the Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers to paint the ink on the stamp.  I adore that our Stampin' Write Markers, Card Stock and Ribbons coordinate and match the pretty Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack*.  (*A stack is a collection of papers with coordinating colors that are in a padded stack - it stores amazingly and is super easy to use.)  With 4 of each 12 designs it's perfect for my Holiday Cards!!
 
Technique Thursday:  This stamp is larger, I like to lay the stamp facing up and paint it.  When I'm done, huff (or breath across the top) to remoisten the inked stamp.  Turn it over and stamp the image, being ready to delight at the colors.  This is a simple but effective way to create a stamped image in a variety of colors that will WOW!
 
The Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies are so cool!  I love how easy it is to create shapes that pop!  The large accent piece is a perfect frame for this sentiment and highlights the card and stamped image.  Using the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine will hold the metal Framlits exactly where you want them for easy cutting!
Tie on some fun... I adore ribbons and this 1" Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon is a MUST!  A rich accent that ties with flair.  Here tying it in a double knot and then cutting a 'V' on the ends will lend to a rich and sassy look.  With 10 yards to a spool you will have fun with ribbon to spare!  (A great way to use it is as accents on gift bags, gift tags and gifts!)
Layered over the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper it will have a perfectly coordinated and seasonal look.  The Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive allows for additional depth to this hand-stamped 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
