Coffee inspiration

Oh I LOVE Fall!!  You can usually find me at Ragamuffin Coffee Roasters but on Sundays, when they are closed, I can grab a random coffee at Starbucks.  This fun coffee cup inspired a card from our recent Stamper's 10 Club (meeting this weekend - RSVP and try it out!!).  A fun and funky Fall hand-stamped card perfect to deliver some warm smiles this Fall. 
Create this card with:
Vintage Leaves stamp set (photopolymer 138802)
Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set (photopolymer 138764)
Perpetual Birthday Calendar (photopolymer 137167)
Hello Honey card stock (133678)

During Fall, aka Pumpkin Season.. sigh.. momma needs her pumpkin and caffeine intake!  Here is a fun and inspirational card that will deliver some cheer and hope.  I started with stamping the sentiment from the Heartfelt Sympathy in Mossy Meadow ink on the center of the Whisper White card stock.  Stamping around the sentiment with the Black Archival ink pad around the center and Vintage Leaves collection.

Finding inspiration in a warm cup of coffee can inspire me to send a hand-stamped card and maybe a gift card to bless them.  What a great gift idea!
This card is fun and eclectic with the pops of color at random.  I love it!!  Using the 2015-17 In Color Stampin' Write Markers pen side to draw in some pops of color along the black stamped leaves.  The Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Marker with dots across the card for a cohesive look.  

I love the Perpetual Calendar stamp set for a fun background image!!  Here the Tangelo Twist In-Color ink pad adds to a cohesive and warm colored card.  Layered over the Hello Honey card stock for a Fall card that will give support and hope.

REMEMBER.. Photopolymer stamp sets are great but have a little extra care in using them.  Create your best image when you stamp with a Stampin' Pierce Pad UNDER the card stock... see more on Photopolymer care and tricks when you click here!!

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
