I was told that I'd never be an artist as a student.  Water-coloring was always a go-to as it's so forgiving.  Here a simple card gives me a bit of calm and relaxation in the midst of Summer.

How To: 
~ Stamp this Sitting Here porch stamp with Black Archival ink on the Watercolor Paper* (always stamp any photopolymer stamp set using a Stampin' Pierce Mat under the paper you are stamping on).  
*This paper is designed for water coloring and is thicker, with texture.  Apply extra pressure. 
~  Using the Aqua Painters color** the porch swing and dog, first.  Secondly color in a sky with the Bermuda Bay ink pad and a floor with the Old Olive ink pad. 
~ **Remember, it's a sky and grass - there is no perfection - just apply streaks and pull the color across the paper with the Aqua Painters.
~ Tie two Linen Thread pieces around a piece of Chocolate Chip Card stock (1" x 4-1/4").
~  Apply the stamped and colored piece of art onto the Bermuda Bay card stock.
~  Cover the top with the Chocolate Chip piece and move the ties to lay over the porch swing.  Use Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to adhere this over the swing.
~ Stamp this pillow on the Daffodil Delight card stock.  Add a pop of color with the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write Marker for fun and interest.

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
