~  Stamping the Whisper White card stock (4" x 2-3/4") with the You're Inspiring set - I like to use the greeting first, like this Happy Easter in the Old Olive ink.  Stamping the Daffodils in the Black Archival ink pad after helps to frame it.
~  Stamp the Daffodils again, just the top half, on a spare sheet of Whisper White card stock.
~  Watercolor, with our Aqua Painters, the flowers in with Daffodil Delight ink and Old Olive Ink, coloring only the spare blooms with the Daffodil Delight ink.
~  Fussy Cut (cut out) our spare blooms with our Paper Snips.
~  Adhere to the full stamped image with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for a simple but WOW pop.
~  Add sparkle with our Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush, rolling a few of the leaves for an additional level of depth.
~  Run the edges of the rectangle in the Daffodil Delight ink pad for an imaginary framed look.
~  Adhere over the abstract, but so beautiful, Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (such a fabulous Spring look!!) 4" x 5-1/4".
~  Our Thick Whisper White card stock is a great card base too!
Spring is HERE and Easter is right around the corner... planning my life around our holidays, family events, work and homeschool... I always look forward to one of my favorite holidays, Easter.  My Nanna used to make my birthday and Easter combined when they were close, so I have such fond memories of times with my cousins, sisters, grandparents, Uncle and Aunts... so as we've aged and moved apart, it holds an extra special place in my heart.

What does Easter and Spring bring to your mind?  Do you remember the fancy church dresses and new shoes?  I grew up with family who were Pastors, Elders and we all seemed to have a job in church.. so Easter Sunday was extra fun as we worked to bless others. Missing my family.. I hope that we, this year, can join my cousin who pastors the church my Grandfather helped to build over 80 years ago...  Celebrate life with me and our fun 365 Reasons to Celebrate crafting posts.

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
