Motorcycles and birthday wishes hand-stamped card

Vroom, vroom.. I'm a girl who loves motorcycles.  I always have.  My mom was a Harley chick even.  My husband is Italian and dreams of a Vespa while I dream of Harleys - lol.  We had fun creating this pretty sunset ride handcrafted card at a recent card making class.  Join Us and create while we connect over card making.

Today I had the most wonderful lunch and crafting session with a dear lady named Ina.  We discussed this very technique with her beloved granddaughter (who's my daughter's age).  Water-coloring is just so much fun, forgiving, easy and yet creates a dynamic result.  

This card is fun and easy to create:
~ Punch with the 2" circle punch a piece of sticky-note (making sure the adhesive part is part of the punched circle).  
~ Stamp this awesome motorcycle in the Black Archival ink pad on the Watercolor paper*.
~ Cover partially with the punched sticky circle creating a masked moon/sun.
~ While closed, squeeze the Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Old Olive ink pads to create a palate of ink.
~ Using the Aqua Painter to paint this sunset/sunrise over the stamped motorcycle (the circle will help create the moon/sun image).  
~ Layer the watercolor paper (*it's thicker and has more texture so you need to push a bit harder when stamping on it) over the black card stock.
~ Stamp this sentiment on the Pumpkin Pie card stock with the Black Archival ink pad.
~ Adhere this framed looking handcrafted 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
