One fabulous stamp set, with 13 pretty stamps, come together to create beautiful works of art!  A simple tip - I love the new options in our stamp sets - yay!  You can pick exactly which type of stamp set you want.  With two-step stamping I like to opt for the Photopolymer so I can see (clearly - lol) where I am stamping.  Lay your stamps over the sample lay out - here this will perfectly place and position my leaves for easy stamping.  
Inspired by the pretty dress (see below) this will stamped down the center.  Using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool for ALL of my cards - I'm addicted to scoring my cards for easy folding.  Here it gives you the exact placement to be centered with a score line as a guide for my stamping.  I love this tool - it saves my cards and makes for dynamic results.
The Photopolymer stamps allow me to easily connect the two sides - yay - easy peasy!!  Photopolymer stamps can not use Stazon ink - so using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad allows for that crisp, precision look with ease.
Laying the flowers on the sample lay-out (as done with the leaves) and stamping the flowers in the Pacific Point ink pad it makes for an easy assembly.  Two-step stamping creates beautiful layered and multi-colored look.  Add this 'You are amazingly amazing' sentiment (this set has a great collection of greetings - I'm in LOVE!!) for a neutral card with a fashionable flair!
Fill the line where it was scored with a small line of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue and layer the Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.  This is a clean, stylish ribbon that ties this card together.
Le-sigh... oh I love, love, love this lovely dress!  You can sooo see why it inspired this hand-crafted card.  No matter where you find your inspiration, create something pretty that will fill a spot in your heart and bless others.  JOIN ME in taking the challenge of blessing others this year.  Send a hand-stamped card to those in your life and see how that small effort will make a big impact!  With our mailboxes filled to the brim with solicitations and bills, bless someone with something that celebrates with, encourage and just-because they are 'amazing' in a hand-crafted card.
OK ~ Take your card up a notch.  It sooo doesn't need it, but sometimes you want to add a subtle luminous accent.  Our adhesive backed Pearl Jewels is a create and elegant accent.  (I'd so wear a strand of my pearls with a dress like this, wouldn't you?)  Using the end of my Paper Snips I scoop under the adhesive to grab hold of the pearl for precision placement.  Simply use your finger to push it down after you've centered it where you want it to go.

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
