If you dream it...

Did you dream, as a little girl? Spending time outside, dreaming, exploring was a must for me.  I love this image from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set/Bundle - the die-cuts creating the perfect swinging branch, combined with the Stargazing stamp set and it's a fun Summer sky!

~  Die-cut the tree image from the Sweet Silhouette Dies (Save 10% when you order it as a Bundle!) from Black card stock.
~  Using the Stamparatus, stamp the Stargazing celestial image in Balmy Blue on the Whisper White.*
TOOL TIP:  With a Distinktive stamp, like this image, I like to stamp off before the final image - so I use a spare paper to stamp first before the application to my cards.  The unique background will lighten and brighten with this often.
~  Stamp the swinging girl and greeting with the Memento black ink pad - I do this multiple times (usually 3) with any silhouette image.
~  Adhere the tree to the card using the Liquid adhesive.
TOOL TIP:  I use a Silicone Craft Sheet when applying any liquid adhesive to help the image to settle.  Apply the adhesive and I lay the Silicone Craft Sheet over it - the light, consistent weight helps it adhere better.

  1. Love them all...the first one is love and reminds me of when we went to England, of the boy with the plane my grown up son in the Airforce, the girl swinging my youth being on a rope swing with wooden seat and the other 2 is go explore visit other places...lifes always an this stamp set, you've made beautiful card.😍

  2. I like the use of the tree on this card.


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
