Sparkle hand-stamped card making tutorial

Silent Night is a favorite Christmas song of mine... it's a still, soft song that touches the soul.  It brings to mind my childhood and Christmas time with my Grandparents.  This simple but WOW card reminds me of this very song.  Still, sweet and sensational.  Inspired by a stamping friend Dawn - this card was modified to fit the season but really works for so many uses.
Create this card with:
Good Greetings Stamp Set (135017)
All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper (135823)
Whisper White card stock (100730)
Silver Glimmer Paper (135314)
Silver Encore ink pad (132142)
1" Square Punch (124094)
Postage Stamp Punch (122344)

Simple can be sensational.  I love the elegance of this quick but layered look.  I wanted a white and silver accented card and this is a good look, don't you think?
 
Simply create a 2" square silver foiled base with the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Layer a Whisper White Postage punch.  Give dimension using the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive on the star punch (from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack) on the 1" Square punched Silver Glimmer Paper.  Just enough sparkle and shine... The Good Greetings stamped with the Silver Encore ink pad is a perfect accent to this easy and elegant 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
