New colors and a fun New *Patent Pending Distinktive stamp.  These new stamps lay down the ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth - just ink the surface and lightly for a perfect photographic finish.
~  TOOL TIP: OK I have to admit this... I cut up at what I did.. well, I actually CUT my Stamp!  This Large Koi fish (in the Mango Melody) and the words in the Black are actually one large stamp.  I cut them apart with my Paper Snips - they store inside the box the same but it makes for easy two-toned stamping!
~  Stamping this new Poppy Parade red on Whisper White card stock.  (Don't you LOVE how easily this shows the variegated ink look for a realistic looking koi fish?!?!)
~  Using the Stazon Tuxedo Black ink and the greeting.
~  The new Mango Melody ink really does look like our orange koi fish - bold, golden and beautiful.
~  Using the Rhinestone Jewels and our Paper Snips - today's Getting Crafty Tip was how easy it is to pick up our adhesive backed embellishments with the tips of our Paper Snips!
(I imagined these to be like the little bubbles our fish blow.)
~  Adhere the Stamped Whisper White card stock over a Black Card Stock - adding to the Asian feel of these fish and this hand stamped card.
~  Apply to the Poppy Parade card base at a fun angle to mimic the flow of their swimming.
I love how our Paper Snips scoop under the adhesive for easy application of these beautiful embellishments.

The Great Outdoors Month is ideal for June and Summer.  Koi fish are large and majestic... we have ours outside in a beautiful attached atrium.

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
