You are the best hand-stamped card

"Waste not want not" was what my dad and grandparents told me as a child.  This card came to life with the whispers of my elders.  These cute chevron pieces came from THIS 3D Butterfly Bookmark!!  I love when a project works to create Two Projects!!  Join Me in creating some beauty and fun, just like this easy hand-stamped card!

Start with the chevrons that are created when using the Banner Triple punch.  I created so many that it was a shame to toss away these cute shapes!  Instead, layer them and turn it into a focal point on a hand-crafted card.  Glue Dots work wonders to hold them together and easily adhere them to your card.

Take this cute card up a notch.  I had extra die-cut butterflies (see the book mark for an example and tutorial).  Using them on this cute card takes it up a layer (or two when you use the wax paper piece).  
Say it out loud!  Show someone that they are the best.  From an accomplishment to just being themselves... it's great to show someone how amazing they are.  Using the White Craft ink pad it pops with a chalk board type feel on this Basic Black card stock.  POP it up with our Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for additional depth.  This Friendly Wishes stamp set is ideal in sending a hand-stamped card to cheer on that special person!

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
