Celebrate a Colorful Life handmade card

It has been a rough week.  Tragedy and loss has hit our country, again. The Las Vegas attack has hit close to home, in so many ways.  With friends who have lost family members in our area, these moms leave behind children and heartbreak.  At our Coffee and Cards class this handmade Celebrate Life card was designed to uplift.  

During our Coffee and Card Making at Ragamuffin, while our table was full of women and coffee we gathered around one who received a text that her friend didn't make it.  The loss was devastating.  Having others to hold hands with, hug, cry, commiserate and pray with helped, even just a little.  It is what we do, walking through life together, helping one another carry the burdens, loss and celebrating joys.

Another friend's daughter was in Las Vegas and missing, having found her hours later - safe, the family celebrated this blessing.  I slipped this card to my friend yesterday, joining in a small way, in the celebration of her daughter's life.

Create this beautiful card with ease:
~  Stamping the Saying from the Colorful Season* stamp set on the Color Theory Designer Series Paper* in Old Olive ink.
~  Stamp the solid leaf with the Crushed Curry ink.
~  Stamp over the Leaf with the veined leaf in Old Olive ink with this 2-Step stamping technique.
~  Add sparkle with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.
~  Add the coordinating Glitter Enamel Dots around the card in it's fun ombre look.
~  Adhere together with the Fast Fuse* adhesive.

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
