This cool *Happy Watercolor stamp set has a beautiful collection of flowers and sayings with this unique watercolor 'shmere'.  Here the Night of Navy, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight were paired together with the assistance of a secret tool that assures a wow card - the Color Coach
The secret to a color balanced project?  Using the colors in percentage of each other.  So the main color (Night of Navy) is bulk of the color you see.  then 50% or less the second color (here, the Old Olive) and then the third color should be 50% of the last color - or like 25% of the first color (the Daffodil Delight).   Try NOT to use more than 3 colors per card and in a percentage of one another. 
Stamp this pretty Snap Dragon stem with the Night of Navy ink on the Whisper White card stock.Color the stem in the with the Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker.  Using this mock-watercolor shmere in the Daffodil Delight (stamped twice as this flower is longer) for a cool look.
The Old Olive page from the *Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper is a fun accent that perfectly coordinates with this color combination.  Adding accents of 'water drops' is a unique feel and look to this card. 
Crystal Effects ROCKS!!  It is a super strong adhesive that creates a glossy, lacquered look.  Here adding drops and 'pulling up' will create these wet 3D crystal 'water drops'.  Allow 10-15 minutes to dry and it will remain shiny and 3D.
Layering this snap dragon image and happy sentiment over the Night of Navy card stock and *Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper with the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive for more interest and dimension. 
Highlight the flowers on this pretty card with the Crystal Effects.  Simply outline the flower with the Crystal Effects and fill in the outline.  Let dry for 10-15 minutes and it will remain shiny and 3D!

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
