Squeeee!!  I adore, yes adore, this sweet and free Honeycomb Happiness Sale~A~Bration stamp set!  It is called that as it coordinates with the cutest pop up paper honeycombs (140566).  

Creating this with a pretty water color technique using the Aqua Painter.  Here the In-Color Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe look like the sweetest of ice cream cones!  Layer to create a shadow and follow the stamp design to create a similar flow (like this rounded shadow*).  *Keep this shadow aspect on every part of the stamped image.

TOOL-TIP TUESDAY:  Add a WOW Element!  Use the Fine-Tip Glue pen to create this glazed look!  Create a line of the glue around the ice-cream portion (I allowed for it to have a drip onto the cone, much like ice-cream will do).  Fill in with a thin (do not do too much) amount of the glue and allow it to dry!!  It will remain shiny and wet looking for a sweet little wow accent!!
Here the hand-made card has a sweet texture.  Thanks to the Decorative Dots embossing folder and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (the best tool ever!!).  Stamp your sentiment first.  Apply the festive Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper next.  THEN run it in the embossing folder for this texture.

Layer this embossed card stock over the same Whisper White card stock for an elegant and subtle framed image.

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
