I adore the look of this brick wall with the creeping vines.  Stamp the Garden Green ink of the Butterfly Basics stamp set on the Very Vanilla card stock.  Emboss the stamped card stock using the Brick Wall embossing folder and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Use the Stamping Sponges in the Crumb Cake ink pad to add some color to these embossed bricks.

Die Cut the butterfly using the Butterfly Thinlits on the Big Shot.  (I recommend the Magnetic Platform 130658, the Precision Base Plate 139684 and the Big Shot Die Brush 140603 to remove the die-cut pieces).

COMPARE!  The card towards the back is pretty, it is just die-cut card stock for the butterfly.  The card in the front was taken UP a notch with the new Wink of Stella Gold Brush painted across the top.  The shine is fine and oh so elegant while being fun and easy to create. Use the Wink of Stella Gold Brush to simply paint across the die-cut butterfly and apply as much or as little (like a wink of - lol) to your design. 
 Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card as the front would be too busy.  This stamp set and Garden Green ink make for a cute greeting.

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
