Watermelon hand-stamped card

Celebrate life.  Sometimes it's hard to stay ahead of the demands of my family, work, life and find time to send my cards out on time (and my passion and business is cards!).  I try to find holidays that give me a chance to leave memories for my children and don't require me to do much work (motherhood, I'm just saying).  One of my favorite holidays to celebrate is in honor of one of my favorite fruit - National Watermelon Day is August 3rd!  See this fun card making video tutorial as I am planning some sweet fun for my family this week.  (Comment below what you think and I may send you this card!)

I love taking a different look at crafting (and life).  Here is a fun and easy spin on a stamp design in the Summer Sorbet stamp set.

Create this juicy card when you:
~ Using the 2015-17 In-Color Watermelon Wonder Stampin' Write Marker to color the inner part of the citrus stamp.
~ Use the 2015-17 In-Color Cucumber Crush Stampin' Write Marker to color the 'rind' of this stamp.
~ Using a permanent marker in black to color in the adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels for a fun watermelon seed look.  Make sure to add one to the citrus center to cover that look.
~ Cut out with our awesome Paper Snips Scissors and adhere to the Whisper White card stock over the Watermelon Wonder car stock base with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for additional depth.
~  Mimic the fruit design when you use the stamp Stampin' Write Markers to color in this greeting from the One Big Meaning stamp set (packed with many ways to say 'thanks'). Add that fun 'watermelon seed' to the greeting for extra whimsy.

CLICK HERE to see the holidays this month and find one that is fun and easy for you to celebrate and leave memories for those in your life.

I like mine with a little chili/lime/salt mix. Tajin on my watermelon reminds me of my childhood! (I'm going to try BBQ watermelon as I've seen on Pinterest lol.)

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
