Use the Confetti Hearts Boarder Punch to punch these tiny hearts in the Red Glimmer Paper.
Accent this with a cute snowman!  Using the Artisan Embellishment kit that comes with this three sized, adhesive backed pearls.  This looks so elegant while being so very easy!  Add these two red sparkling Glimmer Paper hearts to the tree.  I love how this could be a Valentine, a Best Friend or a just-because they help out hand-stamped card!
Stamp this wintry scene using the Silver Encore ink pad and the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  All of the pieces are stamped using the Silver Encore ink pad.  This makes for an easy hand-stamped card!  The Night of Navy card stock look smashing with the silver rubber stamped images!  The individual pieces allow for stamping all of the seasons!  Using the Stampin' Dimensional to set this stamped piece over the Whisper White card stock giving some dimension while allowing the punched stars to brighten the 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
