Fire flies and Summer Wishes hand-stamped card

Catching fireflies.. we don't have this joy in Southern California. A dear friend in Michigan posted about the beauty of these flying fairy type bugs at night. I was inspired to create them for a recent card making class.  Join Us as we create, connect and have crafting fun at our card making classes.

I simply adore this new Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jars Framelit Dies.  I love that it is bundled to save 10% when you purchase the two together! (squee!)  Here is a fun adaptation of what my friend is living in her new home.  

How to create this pretty hand-stamped card:
~ Stamping with the Garden Green ink pad this Lovely As A Tree pine tree laid on it's side to create branches of a tree on this Smoky Slate Designer Series Paper (from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack).
~ Stamp the Jar of Love larger jar on the Vellum with the Black Archival ink pad.
~ Die Cut the handle (on the Silver Glimmer Paper) and jar (on the Vellum) with the Everyday Jars Framelits on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform (to hold the framelit around the stamped image with ease).   
~  Stamp the fire flies with the Black Archival ink pad on the Smoky Slate (Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack) patterned paper.
~ Use the Sponge Dauber and the Daffodil Delight ink pad to create this fun light up bum (lol).
~Adhere the vellum jar with glue dots on the rim and then cover it with the die-cut silver sparkle handle and mini glue dots.  (Make sure to link the handle to the 'tree branches' and cover some hand-stamped fire flies.)

Take it up a notch.  Stamping on the inside is a fun way to continue the card and have even less space to write (lol).  Sometimes less is more, right?  

Technique Idea: 
~  It is so much fun to also stamp on the outside of our envelopes for a sneak peak on the beauty inside.
~  Even better... create a custom envelope in the Smoky Slate Designer Series Paper with the Envelope Punch Board.

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
