Love and Newspaper hand-stamped card

I'm so in-love with our new Occasions Catalog!  This fabulous new Love is Kindness stamp has me over the moon.  I was a newspaper girl when I was 9 and after school I delivered to three routes (about 100 homes) 6 days a week!  My dad had built me a carrying system, too.  So this cool stamp has me doing childhood flashbacks and will be at our upcoming Valentines Crafternoon Class!  JOIN ME in sending cheer and love to those in your life by sending a hand-crafted card, this small measure of love in a hand-stamped card will have a big blessing.

When Stampin' Up! introduced the Stampin' Blendabilities Markers I was wondering how this system could really be worth it... but oh, it sooo is!  This Marker System creates a shadow and 3D effect that delights and is surprisingly easy to use.  You will only get better, each time, when you have some help and practice.  Today we created this as a Preview of what will happen at our upcoming Valentine's Crafternoon Class - RSVP and JOIN US!!

Stamping the words on a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock and cutting out the 'love' makes for a perfect highlight to this card while tying it all together.  What an easy way to add pop to a hand-stamped card!  I love how my friend and team-member inspired this hand-stamped card, thanks Pam!

I wondered how it would look when you use the Crumb Cake Stampin' Blendabilites Markers on the rubber stamped newspaper.  I think it comes out more like butcher paper - what do you think (leave me a comment and let me know)??

When you frame the image with Basic Black card stock and the vintage Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper that has a newspaper type feel.  I love using the Bone Folder to roll the edges for a subtle but easy vintage accent on your hand-crafted 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
