I love when you can re-create something and improve upon it - like this hand stamped card.

~  Stamp the 'Wild about you' greeting in Stazon Black ink on the Crumb Cake card stock (4" x 5-1/4")
~  Die-Cut it with the large Oval in the Stitched Framelits and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
~  Emboss it with the Woodland embossing folder.
~  Trace the oval with a thin (I used a .05mm pencil) on the Thick Whisper White card stock.
~  Stamp this Kangaroo and Koala in the Black Stazon ink pad.
~  Water color with the Aqua Painter and the Smoky Slate ink (koala) and the Crumb Cake ink pad (kangaroo).
~  Tie the White Polka Dot ribbon to the side and adhere to create a mock bow (see the video tricks for this and the simple cutting technique for fun ends).
~  Adhere to the embossed and die-cut Crumb Cake to the front of the Whisper White card stock with Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.
At our Coffee and Cards (at Ragamuffin Coffee Roasters) we create clean, fun, easy handmade cards while we connect over crafting and card making.  This White card (on the Right) is what we created.  Taking it up a notch with less card stock but more technique is so much fun.
Taking it up a notch or two - with LESS card stock.... see this fun Coffee and Cards card making tutorial.

The same paper, inks and stamp set create two very different hand made cards.  With a fun twist of the handle (twice) creating an embossed and die-cut window card.  Watching two amazing families in the midst of adoption is a beautiful thing - like those at our church.  This sweet pairing reminds me of this type of love.  I hope you enjoyed creating with us!

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
