Delightful dragonfly birthday card

I have this friend... (stories like this always make me laugh) and this friend is my right hand, my rock, my searing hot prod, my confidant, my sister-of-my-heart.  Her birthday was this week.  This is a fun combination of our Idea Book and Catalog and the Spring Occasions Catalog for the perfect mix (like my friend and I - lol).  
This is for my Tresa.. I hope you enjoy!

Layers.  Like most people there are layers to them, ones that you delve into and learn more about.  
Creating this dimensional Dragonfly was easy and I really do love the results...
~  Die-Cut the Dragonfly thinlit in all three layers of hte Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper.
~  Layer over one another with the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals - BUT Slightly layer off of each other so that the bottom colors peak through with beautiful sparkle.  
~  Stamp the pretty picture of confetti page (4" x 5-1/4") with the Bemuda Bay ink pad and this Dragonfly Dreams stamp set greeting.
~  Add more sparkle with our Clear Wink of Stella glimmer brush over the confetti.
~  Adhere the pretty layered dragonfly.
Sparkle... just like my friend!!  Is there ever toooooo much sparkle?? (I agree - nope - lol.)

I don't know).  I hope you enjoyed a peak into my relationship with my dear friend and sister-at-heart.  Happy birthday boo... love you!

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
