Timeless, Vintage, Gold hand-stamped card

Vintage delights.. I love so much that is vintage.  My grandparents had a rotary phone in their home until I was 18 and they gave it to me - lol.  I love it!  So when this card came to mind the combination of vintage grabbed me.  So create a layered, vintage and gold accented hand-stamped card that will delight now with a nod to things of the past.
Create this Vintage Friend hand-stamped card with:
Timeless Talk stamp set (wood 126605/clear 126607)
Backgrounds Rule stamp (wood 134039/clear 134042)
Crumb Cake card stock (120953)
Basic Black card stock (121045)
Typeset Specialty Designer Paper (133704)
Gold Foil Sheets (132622)
Gold Metallic Encore ink pad (132141)
Alphabet Press embossing folder (130916)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (113439)

Create layers and depth using these different techniques:
~ Backgrounds Rule is a great background rubber stamp that is cool.  Using the Gold Encore ink pad on the Crumb Cake card stock will give an elegant and subtle base to this hand-crafted card.
~ Embossing the Gold Foil Sheets with the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Giving this card texture and fun shine with a vintage look.
~ The Typeset Designer Series Paper is so cool!  Great for crafting, they are thin, much like a vintage map, newspaper or book.  Using this to create an additional layer is easy and the Santa Fe Railroad is a nod to my family's heritage of being Train Engineers - my Pappa retired after 20+ years on a locomotive.
Timeless Talk is a fun, vintage stamp collection. Here the rotary phone is perfect as it's stamped using the Gold Encore ink pad on the Basic Black card stock.  Adding the 'Hello There' is perfect in so many situations.

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
