Stamping Off... This card is so easy to create.  I love those pink and green hydrangeas and wanted to mimic the beauty.  

Create this card by:
~ Stamp with Pear Pizzazz ink on Blushing Bride card stock this stamp from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  WITHOUT reinking - stamp slightly turned to create this blurred and softened look (this is called Stamping Off - a fun and easy technique).  
~ Frame it with the coordinating Beautiful Branches thinlits and die-cut on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
~ Brush it out using the Big Shot Die-Brush (TOOL-TIP:  I have mine inside of a Paper Pumpkin box to contain all of the die-cut pieces.)
~ Die-Cut the stem from the Pear Pizzazz card stock and do the same as above.
~ Create a sponged cloud background (see below) with the Soft Sky ink pad.
~ Stamp the greetings in the Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride ink pads.
~ Roll the Glue Dots and adhere the stem.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals (cut in half) to create dimension with die-cut hydrangea flower.
~ Tie a bow with the shiny silver ribbon and adhere to the stem with a rolled glue dot.

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
