Vintage typewriter card making

I'm a vintage type of gal.. love the movement to return to simpler things (but don't take my kindle fire or iphone away from me - lol).  My dad used to give me a vintage type writer to play with as a kid while he worked away in his office.  Here is a sweet vintage inspired card in honor of my dear old dad (I'm sure he is looking down on me with a smile).  Join Us and create beautiful works of art and love, wrapped up in a handmade card at our card making classes.

Stamp this pretty Tap, Tap, Tap stamp set's vintage typewriter on our Very Vanilla card stock using the Black Archival ink pad (ideal for water coloring as it doesn't run once dry).
~ Squeeze the in-color Mint Macaron ink pad, while closed, to create a collection of ink in the lid.
~ With water in your Aqua Painter and a near dry tip pull the Mint Macaraon ink (dont' squeeze too much water as it will cause the ink to dilute too much and it is hard to color the application of color).  
~ Water color the pretty typewriter in.
~ Fussy Cut it out with ease - use the Paper Snips and their precision tips, sharp blades to easily cut this pretty watercolored typewriter out.
~ Layer over the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I rolled the corners of this thinner, vintage feel and look pretty paper.
~ Accent with these pretty punched Pink Pirouette Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower.  Adding the adhesive backed Pearl Jewels for the perfect vintage, soft and pretty accent.
This is just like the typewriter my dad and grandparents had.  I love the click of each key as we had fun typing away.

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
