Living in Southern California, I don't get much time in the snow.  We love going up to Big Bear to catch some of that wintery wonder.  Creating a winter wonder scene during this hot July is a fun way to cool it down.  Creating a Masked image is an easy way to customize a winter field.

Start this snowy scene when you: 
~ Tear a long strip of paper/sticky note to create a snow scene.
~ Stamp the stunning pine tree from the Lovely As a Tree stamp set in Jet Black Stazon ink on the upper 1/3 of the Whisper White card stock in varying heights.
~  Punch a 1" Circle in the sticky note.  Cover part of the 'sky'.  I like to have the 'moon' peek through the branches of the trees.
~ Using the Stamping Sponge in the Night of Navy ink pad to create the winter night scene.
I like to alternate sides and move the sticky note so that it has interest and variety.  Sponge, close to the edge, a couple more hills of snow as you go down.  Stamp the 'Merry Christmas' from the (must-have) Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in the Night of Navy ink pad at the bottom of the snow scene.

Add some sparkle - I LOVE the Dazzling Details glitter adhesive!!  Nooo words for the ease and fun of using this on your hand-stamped projects!  Here I added a dot to the center of the tree and snow line and using the tip of the bottle to spread it thin.  A little sparkle goes a long way to make this hand-crafted card POP!

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
