Create some Fall with this simple leaf card.  I love the look of a water colored card.  Here the soft colors of the season is easy to create using the Aqua Painter.  Stamp these Vintage Leaves (I adore these leaves) on the Whisper White card stock with Early Espresso ink pad.  
Color in with the lightest color, the Daffodil Delight ink pad, then accent with the Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks.  Follow along the lines of the stamped image for a natural look and shadowing.  I adore how easy the Aqua Painter makes water coloring - it's body is filled with water!  I can travel and create art and no mess... heaven for a mom of 6, lol.

I love the look of a rounded card, it stands out.  Using the Project Life Corner Punch to punch both the Whisper White and the folded and boned card.
Like a snow flake, a Fall leaf is not the same.  I love that additional shadow along the veins of these hand-stamped leaves.  Accented with the Watercolor Words stamped in the Pumpkin Pie ink.  Accent with a pretty adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewel in the center of the 'love'.  

Here the difference in how I punch the corners is just another fun way to be unique with your paper crafting.

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
