Gearing Up with my son...

My boy... allow me to introduce my sweet and strong 15 year old young man... Sal.  He is the only boy with five sisters!  I am doing everything I can to raise him to be a good man, a man of God, a hard working man.. I pray he is much like my beloved Grandfather.  So when I was stuck with what to create this week.. he went right to this Geared Up Garage suite.  So I wrangled him in to helping me do my LIVE (to his dismay!).  
 I grew up in Santa Maria and East Los Angeles, CA.  Cars, vintage cars especially, are something I am passionate about and have passed down to my kids.

One of the things I love about our area is the local Cars and Coffee gatherings, the first and third Saturday of each month.  My son and I love to discuss the many paint jobs on the cars, pin striping to metallic, multi layered color with glitter.  It inspire this handmade card.  
unique color for these cool handmade Father's Day cards.  
~ Stamp with Stazon black ink on the Silver Foil this Happy Father's Day and the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper the car (I looked for the lighter spot on this page of color).
TOOL TIP:  Many asked my why I used the Stazon ink on this project.  My son even knew - lol - with how much I create around him.  First of all, stamping on Foil Sheets limits what ink - it's a non-porous surface and the alcohol based ink sitting on the top allows for it to dry and remain.  Second, it smells like almonds - lol.  Third, I try to use only one black on a project for ease and less chance of losing something (my son did comment on that as well - ha, ha ha!).
~  Die-Cut the Father's Day greeting and car using the coordinating Garage Gears Thinlits.
~  Stamp the oil splatter on the bottom of the Balmy Blue card.
~  Emboss with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder the Blueberry Bushel card stock.
~  Tear the side to create a 'tear it up' look.
~  Adhere the torn paper with the SNAIL adhesive and the Car and Greeting with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.
~  Using Glue Dots, rolled, adhere the Classic Garage Metal Element/key to the front.  I love a good car show and so does my family!  

~  Add that 'metallic' paint with our Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.
We love seeing the beautiful vintage rides, unique cars, new and old muscle cars.. and doing it together.

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
