Your Amazing in Pink Polka Dots!

My daughter has a new lil friend in her class this year, Ella, and we missed her Cinderella Swim Party :(.

I couldn't resist getting a sweet lil present and making this card for her new lil friend! My Genevieve picked out her favorite color for the base, Pretty In Pink! The Color Coach suggested the Monochromatic sister in Melon Mambo.

I nabbed my Distressed Dots background stamp and with Melon Mambo stamped the card base. I wanted to make it extra girly and I couldn't resist adding these pearls in two of the Dots lines. I could have done the whole page but it would have almost taken away from the fun texture of the Distressed Dots, don't you think?

I then stamped the hot air balloons in Pretty In Pink ink. It creates a subtle distressed addition to the background. I like that the balloon has distressed dots in it, too!!

With Melon Mambo ink I stamped on Whisper White paper the Happy Birthday sentiment from that Your Amazing stamp set and with Pretty In Pink I stamped the distressed hot air balloon from that same set across/behind the sentiment.

With our Apothecary Accents Framelets and my Big Shot I punched out this great shape. I then used two of the larger adhesive backed pearls to the ends. It makes for an easy coordination. I then took a sponge to the Pretty In Pink ink and distressed the edges with this color. It softens an yet defines the edges of this shaped sentiment.

With Stampin' Dimensional adhesive it floats on the card and ties into the pearls that are in the dots! A fun and girly card... It is ideal for a 6 year olds birthday!

I hope you feel fashionably vintage an polka dotty! I love this StampinUpLNStampers challenge. ! Here with the dots and lines it sooo takes on the Challenge 191!

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
