Soaring birthday wishes hand-stamped card

I love most things adventurous. I am certified to scuba and sky dive. One dream I have yet (but I will) to fulfill is a hot-air balloon ride. I just love watching them soar into the sky. When there was a need for birthday cards for disabled children our Blessing Cards Ministry came to the rescue. A local support group that works with disabled children, called Buddy Break, gives the parents a break for a day while the kids play, are cared for and even siblings are spoiled. So here is a hand-stamped card that can lift these families up.

This card was so easy to create!  The Photopolymer stamps allow for easy layering. Here stamping the Daffodil Delight ink for the Happy balloon is first. Layer the inked stars with Crushed Curry. 

Photopolymer stamps do not work with certain ink/stamp pads (like Stazon). Using the Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad (which is for my Blendabilities markers) I can stamp this layered Birthday in black for a sharp look. 

Using the FREE Sale-A-Bration Best Day Ever Designer Series Paper for the additional hot air balloons. With two sides to our Designer Series Paper your style is free to soar! Simply layer a 2-1/2" strip on the Big Shot Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine. This allows for easy and precision cutting!
Layer these hot air balloons using the first one with SNAIL adhesive. Then the other two with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for depth. 

Stamp the basket with Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad with ease thanks to the clear Photopolymer stamps. 

Moms and Dads (and siblings)  with disabled children have such a hard job. They are entrusted to raise such special lives. When Buddy Break gives the parents a day off, for free, in a safe environment, it is such a huge blessing to these families. The siblings are even treated to special fun, while the disabled kids are loved and cherished. If YOU would like information on Buddy Break, let me know.  (Email me at Jamie@GettinCraftyStampin.com ). A hand-crafted card is a small way that I can send some love and support this ministry.

A hand-stamped card is sure to bless those who receive it and their families.

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
