I am digging this groovy stamp set/bundle!  What a fun way to add an accent to a cupcake, a hand-stamped card, gift wrap or a gift.  Here the cute 'I've got my eye on you' is a perfect Halloween sentiment.  Stamped with the new Black Archival ink pad for a crisp look.  Layered over the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper for a cool tombstone look.  (I can't wait to use this on treats for the kids in our school at at our church's trunk or treat!!)
Coloring in this cute die-cut eye is easy.  The Tempting Turquoise and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers make for fun and quick work.  Adding the red lines to the eye adds to the 'creepy' factor.  

Use the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen to create a glossy eyeball.  Draw a line of glue around the outside of the hand-stamped and die-cut image.  Fill in with a fine sheen of liquid glue.  This will take 10-15 or so minutes to dry to a high shine.  The Real Red lines did get a little blurry but I like the effect!
***How exciting - the Handpicked Framelit Dies are ON SALE!!  This is only for a few days.. limited quantities.. so grab YOURS Now!  Shop 24/7 when you click here.***
The new Curvy Corner Triple Punch is awesome!  I love the look, the variety, the strength of the punch and the ease of use.  Here punching the corners of the closed card, the Designer Series Paper and the Very Vanilla insert even mimics the tombstones while making your card stand out from the rest!

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
