Russian Nesting Dolls hand-stamped card

Small things and small things that stack into one another are always a delight!  I love Russian Nesting Dolls.  They are vibrant in color, stack into one another and are tiny!  Creating a hand-stamped card with this great image, one that brings back memories of our youth is a great way to bless someone special (who treated you special).

I love the look of a soft water-colored image.  You can create layers and depth, shadowing, etc.  With our Aqua Painters the water is inside the pen!  Stamp the image with the Jet Black Stazon ink pad.  You can water-color on traditional card stocks and papers but the the best result is when you do so on our Watercolor Paper.  It is thicker and absorbs water to keep the paper flat for a high-quality look.

My beloved grandparents had a set of Russian Nesting Dolls and I don't know where it ended up since their passing. When my youngest discovered a set at one of our teacher's homes - she was over the moon!  Now for me to find a set.... hmmm... 
Pulling the color selection from the *soon-to-retire *Flashback Designer Series Paper to have a cohesive look to your project.  Layer the water-colored stamped image and add additional depth when you use the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.

I love that a rubber stamped image in a hand-crafted card can bring back memories of my youth.  Russian nesting dolls in one of my favorite and *soon-to-retire stamp sets delivers a pretty and unique hand-crafted card.  Water-colored image can be soft and not perfect while delivering a perfect Thank-You card for that someone special who did something special for you!

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
