To a Classic hand made card

I'm going to tell you about a friend of mine.  Pete Phillips.  He's a man with great taste in women (I love his wife and daughter!) and cars... he drives a great 1950 (something) Chevy with white and teal panels.. sigh.  He's also a man who's poured love and education into thousands of kids.  As Pete was awarded the Teacher of the Year Award and he Retired from teaching.

~ Stamp this image on Very Vanilla and Soft Sky card stocks with Early Espresso ink* (*See techniques below). 
~  Heat Set with the Heat Tool.
~  Color in the car with Soft Sky ink pad and Aqua Painters.
~  Fussy Cut the car (cut out) with our Paper Snips.
~  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals to this STUNNING Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper (see this Paper Share and Grab your OWN at a SAVINGS!!). The GOLD is so delicious, isn't it??

Masking... Note that the last word 'me' is left off.. when I inked this image in the Early Espresso ink pad, I placed the backing for a Stampin' Dimensional on the 'me' to cover it.  With Pete being the Teacher of the Year and over 30 years as a teacher, I just know he's impacted the lives of so many...  a simple trick makes this card perfect!

Heat Embossing:  I prepped my card stock with the Embossing Buddy to prepare the surface.  Stamped the images and sayings in Early Espresso ink.  QUICKLY apply Clear Embossing Powder, heat set with our Heat Tool for a shiny raised surface!  Easy Peasy (but move fast, before the ink dries) I usually use Versa Mark so this was a great alternate.

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
