It's Your Day hand-stamped bow card

I love the 1950's.. I wasn't around then but the visions of poodle skirts, pink bows, black and white patterns and the introduction of Rock 'n Roll (Rock Around the Clock is a favorite bop from Happy Day's - lol to Churck Berry, Buddy Holly and more!!).  This Strawberry Slush In-Color reminds me of the pink accents of the 1950's, the black and white punched bow.. it makes for a sweet celebration hand-stamped card.  Add the cool accent of our new Chalkboard Paper and Chalk Ink for a groovy and hip hand-crafted card.

Big On You stamp set (137151)
Strawberry Slush card stock (131295)

The matte look of this STUNNING Chalk Paper makes me giddy!  Silly but true - kind of like finding a fabulous new pair of shoes - on sale - lol!  This two sided paper has a regular black on one side, the Chalk Board side to the other.  The Chalk side is very rich and matte making for a unique background that actually has it's own depth.  Stamp with the New and Awesome Chalk Ink Pads for a real Chalk-Board look that won't brush off!  Here the Rose Coral Chalk ink pad really works with the Strawberry Slush in-color card stock.  Raise it with the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.

The new Bow Builder Punch makes for the CUTEST Bow!!  Love this cute and easy punch that can take a collection of papers and create a stunning hand-crafted bow accent!  Use Hot Glue (carefully) for a sturdy accent on your hand-stamped card that will hold up to mailing handling.   
The Chalk Ink really does look like a chalk writing from your local sandwich place or coffee shop - doesn't it??  I love this cool, trendy accent.  The Big On You stamp set from the Occassions Mini Catalog makes for a quick but cool card.  With large sayings - that say it all (lol) - you can deliver a hand-stamped card showing who is important and with style!

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
