We had so much fun creating this on our Facebook.com/GettinCraftyStampin LIVE this past Monday.  With some fun twists to wow, see how easy this card is to create (and add wow sparkle too).
~  Punch the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper with the Acorn Builder punch.
~  Assemble the acorns for a mixed pattern look with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
TOOL TIP:  Punch from one side of the Succulent Garden and then the other to create tops of the acorns that fit perfectly (see the video tutorial for this example).
~  Stamp with the Grey Archival ink pad on the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock this greeting.
~  Adhere the acorns to the card with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.
~  Adhere the stamped Whisper White to the front of the Thick Whisper White card stock with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (make sure to apply adhesive to the center of the top piece for proper support).
Technique Fun:  Take this card up a notch!  Place the finished card in a Paper Pumpkin Box (to contain any mess).  With a Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush and a Bone Folder tap the two to create a tiny and wow sparkle splatter!  Move around so the splatter is random and spread out.  

Created at a recent Facebook.com/GettinCraftyStampin LIVE... this Sparkling Acory Hello hand made card is sure to brighten someone's day!

Sparkle!!  There is the prettiest fine mist of sparkle across the whole card with this simple and fun splatter technique.  (Sadly, it's hard to photograph, 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
