I love this illusion of an aquarium, under the sea, is so simple and fun to create.
~  Emboss the Marina Mist card stock (4" x 5-1/4") with the Seaside embossing folder and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
~ Adhesive one side of this to the front of a Crumb Cake card stock using Fast Fuse adhesive.
~  Punch a circle using the 2" Circle Punch.
~  Lay a Very Vanilla card stock (4" x 5-1/4") on the inside of the card.
Techniques:  Stamping Off here is so easy for layered dimension, stamp the coral image in Calypso Coral ink pad and continue to stamp off for a variety of shades.
~  Layer the punched circle over the coral so you know where to stamp the fish in the Marina Mist ink pad.
~  Adhere the stamped Very Vanilla to the inside of the card with Fast Fuse Adhesive.

Technique:  ~  Create this 'Aquarium' when you apply the Window Sheet between the Marina Mist and Crumb Cake card stocks using Glue Dots.
~  Fussy Cut (cut out) the stamped Anchor in Crumb Cake and Ahoy There in Calypso Coral inks on the Very Vanilla card stock using our Paper Snips.
~  Adhere to the card using Glue Dots, so it hangs over the punched circle, the Window Sheet rocks for this.

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
