Creating this reverent scene is easy to do.  Start with the Jet Black Stazon ink pad and stamp the Wishing you every blessing sentiment in the bottom corner and the Shepherds and Star of David in the middle on the Whisper White card stock.

Color around the star with your Stamping Sponges and the Daffodil Delight ink pad. I sponged down towards the shepherds.  Sponge the night sky with the Night of Navy ink pad and Stamping Sponges.  Leaving the sentiment highlighted in white.

Wrapped with the Night of Navy Seam Binding Ribbon gives a soft sheen to the card while separating the sentiment and rubber stamped image.

I love the reverence and stillness of this sacred moment in time.  It signifies the arrival of our Lord Jesus to the humblest of people in the fields.  I also love how easy it is to take two ink pads and create a special night time scene that embodies the awe of Christmas.  Join me in sending some beautiful hand-stamped art in a hand-made Christmas card this year!  Be ahead of the game with our fun Friday Evenings (and one Wednesday) that we will create 20 stunning hand-crafted cards and be early in sending them (or on time - last year I sent New Year's Christmas cards!!).

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
