Typeset Vintage Snowman hand-stamped card


I live in Southern California... we can't claim the extreme weather of a good portion of the nation but we do get weather.  So as my friend posted, we were 25* this morning - yikes - and I couldn't resist a post of a snow man as a nod to this chilly weather.  This quick and easy hand-crafted Snowman card is simple, elegant and vintage with a touch of texture in the embossed 'sky'.

Very Vanilla card stock (101650)

Create this quick die-cut snowman using the Circles Collection Framelits on the Magnetic Platform.  Starting with a 5-1/4"x4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  Use the 'base' and the fourth from smallest Circle framelits.  Then the next three smallest framelits to create this elegant snowman.

Emboss with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder to create a 'starry night sky'.  I love the subtle look of these embossed stars!






Brrrrr - when my friend and stamper Patti posted this on Facebook - I was glad to be (A) in bed at 7:20am (B) wearing my fuzzy jammies and (C) holding a hot Mocha Latte after I did wake up!  This January, the LNS blog has a Snowman challenge, too - I love how it all works out - lol.
Layer the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper under the embossed and die-cut piece using the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.  (The Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper is a lightweight, with a vintage feel - just like from the pages of an older book!) I love how it looks on the Very Vanilla card stock base.  Adding a pop of bling with our adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels for a simple but wow element.  Simple, clean, elegant, textured and vintage - this easy hand-crafted card is sure to warm hearts on a chilly day!

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
