Water-coloring can happen on regular card stock but will have a better image using the Watercolor Paper.  Here the image will have a damp, slightly blurred image when you ink the stamp with the Sahara Sand ink pad then (holding it away from your crafting area) lightly spritz it with water using our fine mist Stampin' Spritzer.
Your spritzed image will take on that softened, vintage hand-stamped look.
Stamping it on the Watercolor Paper will absorb the excess water and hold up to the excess of moisture.  I did the same thing with the sentiment.
Die Cut this stamped image with the coordinating and *soon-to-retire Labels Collection Framelits in yourBig Shot Magnetic Platform and Die-Cutting Machine.  I will miss this stamp set (and hoard it for my private collection!!).  Score this stamp set before they are GONE!
Layered over the stunning ribbon, the adhesive backed Pearl Jewels and Very Vintage buttons add a whimsical accent to the card.
The *Beautifully Baroque embossing folder to create texture that frames the elegant stamped image with ease thanks to my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

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
