A Sunshiney Day!

I was so inspired by my dear friend and fellow stamper Christine Cendejas! She just loves bright colors, especially yellow! This Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie card is allllll her! The LNS stampers challenged us this week to pierce a card and this is my challenge answer! What a fun card at this weekends class!!!

I love this Stamp set and with any $50 order it is only $5!!!!! Wow! It's a great 2 Step Stamp set and yet it's great enough to be stamped and colored in!!! "Reason to Smile" is really a reason to smile! I love, too, that 2 Step Stampin doesn't have to be perfectly lined up and still looks good!! It adds great dimension and depth, too!

Here I used the Pumpkin Pie cardstock as the base and I rounded the corners on opposite corners! I mimicked this on the embossed (with my Big Shot and our new Fan Embossing Folder!) Daffodil Delight and then the Whisper White flower stamped paper. I love, too, that the fan folder mimics the shape of the flower here.

I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and the with the dauber edged it with Daffodil Delight ink. I used our new Piercing Guides and Mat to outline the punch, sooo easy and fun! I love when our tools are sooo easy, layer out to layer and make me look like I'm amazingly good lol.

Using Stampin Dimensionals it layers and pops! The Daffodil ribbon ties it all together lol. I then added a little bling with our new Vintage buttons, sooooo stunning (and my hubby said it looked like the sun shining onto the flower, awww). I used a rhinestone in the center to add a little more bling!

I hope you enjoy this card as I really did!!! Brights may not be my usual style but this is a fun card and it really did brighten my day!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

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
