Blossoms and Blessings hand-stamped card

A hand-stamped card is often used to cheer up someone with struggles in their lives.  Our Blessing Cards group meets once a month and we create hand-crafted cards that are used for just that purpose!  We donate hand-made cards to many Ministries, Outreaches, Soldier Services (like For the Troops), Buddy Break (an outreach for children with various disabilities and their families) to Children's Hospital.  Today I delivered a stack of hand-crafted cards that will be used to reach out to people who are in real need.  What a joy it is to use my love of crafting for blessing and enriching the lives of others.  JOIN US for the Free Card Event 'Blessing Cards' events on one Tuesday afternoon per month.

Indescribable Gift stamp set (wood 137180/clear 138575)

These cards are used in a Church Ministry that sends encouragement to their members who are struggling or have had loss.  They have a selection of scripture they use.  This was one of the options that was needed.  I simply printed them, two to a page, towards the bottom of the page for a perfect scripture look.

Stamp the new Indescribable Gift stamp set flower on alternating corners in Stazon Jet Black ink to frame the words.  Add soft color when you Watercolor the flowers in with our Aqua Painters.  Squish the lid into the ink pad to create a collection of ink and use this to paint the flowers, branch and leaves.  The great thing with Water Coloring you do not have to be perfect!  You can create layers and depth as well.

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
