Start by embossing the Crushed Curry card stock with the Decorative Dots embossing folder on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

Using the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to die-cut the 'you' from the Hello You Thinlits*.  Cutting the word 'You' out of a 2" strip of the Gold Foil - no waste and easy to do**!  Using the Paper Piercing Tool to push through the holes on the flat edge - don't pierce through but just push it out of the thinlit track.

*A secret is using Wax Paper or Dryer Sheets between the thinlit and the paper - this will allow for easier removal of the die-cut word/image.  (Save those dryer sheets y'all!)

**Save the piece of Gold Foil that you die-cut the word from and the scraps of the die-cut in an envelope - we will use this for a project and not have ANY Waste!  BAM!! - Love that!!  The Crazy about You rubber stamp set is designed to coordinate for a ba-gillion (a word my kids and I use - lol) sayings!  It also comes in three options - you can now have the stamps in the format that makes YOU Happy!!

Apply the Gold Foil die-cut 'you' and the Gold sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim using the Crystal Effects liquid lacquer - less is more but it's a strong liquid adhesive that dries clear (and will hold even on the textured Crushed Curry Decorative Dots embossed sheet).

The stunning and colorful Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper has flecks of gold foil in the packet - eeeeeeee!!  I love it - the center punched has the gold confetti mixed in for a great accent.

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
