Celebrating the men in our lives... today is always a bit of a rough day for me - with my father and grandfather having had passed and whom I was very close to each of them.  My son, you can see below, resembles these men in look and heart - my sweet blessing.  So in honor of my husband and his father.. here is a little video tutorial of a fun, vibrant and boat-themed handmade card for Father's Day.  This card has a FUN Surprise that makes it spring forth!

Usually, this time of year, we are celebrating while up in Big Bear Lake, CA.  Right now the lake has limited access so we have postponed our time up there. My husband loves time, in the boat, on the lake... so for him, I woke early and created this hand stamped card to surprise him.  
To create this card we will be using the masking technique.
~  Tear a long sticky note to create a sky line.
~  Sponge the bottom of the card, working it's way up starting with the Sponge Daubers and Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point inks up to the mask.
~  Using the other side of the mask, covering the bottom, build up the top with the same technique using Blushing Bride, Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss inks and their Sponge Daubers.
~  Stamp the By the Dock stamps on the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper with Memento Black ink.
~  Stamp this Father's Day greeting from the new Best Year stamp set.
~  Assemble the card together with Stampin' Seal adhesive over Pacific Point card stock and Thick Whisper White card stock.
~  Fussy cut the wooden dock and boat with our Paper Snips.
~  Adhere this to the front of the hand crafted card.
~  Using the Wink of Stella and flick sparkles across the front of this sponged card front.
~  SPRING it to the Next Level - using these Mini Springs designed for paper crafting and set the boat using this!
**Creating an interactive card that will have your husband, father and kids playing with it for days!** 
Here is my son, father and grandfather... my son a mini-me to these men in their look and heart.  
My husband John is a father to Five Daughters, One Daughter and One Grandson.

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
