I do love the great backgrounds in our Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Here a splattering of Gold Encore ink on the Basic Black card stock was a great 'frame' to the focal point.  Stamping this FREE Stamp Set Simply Wonderful (a must have and available for a LIMITED TIME) on Very Vanilla card stock 2"x3".  Accent with a 1-1/2" x 3" piece of Gold Glimmer Paper for a jazzy sparkle.  This 4" square card is a unique size and shape - sure to stand out above other cards (not that it is a competition or anything - lol).

This card was inspired by the CEO of Stampin' Up!'s blog.  I took this fab look and did a variation.  It was a Class Favorite at our recent Gold card making event.
I love these hanging hearts!!  Using the heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and punch four hearts.

Tie the Gold Baker's Twine (see this video below on how to prevent it from un-raveling!!) around the stamped card stock.  Using Glue Dots to apply the Gold Foil punched hearts back to back for a cute hanging accent that will move and shine.

See this Video Tutorial  on how to NOT un-ravel with our Metallic Baker's Twine:

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
