Give the gift of Coffee with this hand-stamped gift card

Ohhhh coffee - my hero.... that warm cup in my hands, first thing in the morning (again mid-morning and maybe again in the afternoon).  The smell warms my very core and soothes the chaos that surrounds me (with 6 kids, a hubby, animals galore - chaos reigns...).  So in a nod to National Coffee Day, I can't help but give YOU the gift of Coffee with this hand-stamped coffee gift card from our recent Fall for Fall card class.  Join Me in giving the gift of energy with a perfectly percolated hand-crafted gift card.

As a lover of coffee, having a day to celebrate it is truly a holiday (not that I need an excuse to enjoy a cup of joe - lol). 
Stamp this Perfect Blend travel cup on Very Vanilla card stock using the Memento ink pad.  Color the cup and cozy with the lightest of the Blendabilites Crumb Cake trio.  Accent the cup edges (only) in the medium of the Blendablilties trio.  Color more of the medium on the cozy and accent the lines and edges with the darkest of the trio.  This ombre look is easy to do and fun - the class was amazing as many had never used this coloring system and they ROCKED IT!!

Using the precision Paper Snips to cut this cup out and adhere it to a 'Belly Band'.  This is a crafting term - it is a band that wraps around a card or project - much like a belt.
Here using a 1" wide strip of the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper gives me a perfectly colorful accent to this card.  Wrap it snug (but not too tight, you have to be able to take it on and off of the card and have the gift card inside) around the Gift Card from the Gift Card Enclosure Pack.  Adhere using the SNAIL adhesive and apply the coffee cup using the Stampin' Dimensionals for depth to the project. 
The Gift Card Enclosure Pack comes with 10 cards that fold into this cool shape, are easy to decorate, and stylish.  They have slits to pop your gift card into and will delight and bless anyone who receives it!
Add fun Coffee elements to the inside of this hand-stamped card.  The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set has these splatter looking images.  I love it.. tons of fun!  Stamping this in Crumb Cake ink is a coffee-esk look.  Stamping the Mossy Meadow coffee greeting is sure to 'Perk' up someone's day - lol - while perfectly coordinating with the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper!*

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
