Peacock WaterColoring hand-stamped card

I find crafting inspiration EVERYWHERE.  When on a recent weekend in Big Bear Lake, I discovered a beautiful door stopper two things came in mind - (a) I can soooo make this into a hand-stamped card and (b) this will stop my toddler from slamming the door when I want it open (yes, in this order the thoughts came or are they justifications for the purchase - lol).  So join me in seeing what inspires me and how to create this pretty hand-crafted card.

Perfect Peacock stamp (wood 133830)
Sassy Salutations stamp set (wood 132070/clear 126707)

I love vintage looking items.  This hand-stamped card takes our lovely Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper and this vintage newspress/book look and uses it for the foundation to this watercolored peacock.  Simply stamp the bird on the Typeset Specialty (due to it's being thinner and aged looking this packet is an amazing combination of images) Designer Series Paper with the Jet Black Stazon ink pad.  Using the Pool Party color the lightest part of the center to each feather, add the Garden Green around the Pool Party and then the Island Indigo around that - all with the Aqua Painter.  Coloring the leaves with the Garden Green ink pad and the flowers with the Crushed Curry ink pad.  

The Sassy Salutations flows with a bold line.  Stamped with Island Indigo ink on the Very Vanilla card stock the Decorative Label creates a lovely shaped sentiment.  Using the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to raise the sentiment above the peacock.
THIS.. this is the inspiration for the water-colored card.  With a stunning image like this, my love of vintage, peacocks and blues.. you can see WHY I purchased this door stop for my home.
Aqua Painters allow for a soft and rich look of water coloring.  Here the newsprint peeps through and gives an elegant look to this easy hand-stamped 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
