Creating Clouds to Stamping a Rainbow... 
 ~  Prepare your card with a Coastal Cabana card stock to 5-3/8" and 4-1/8, Basic White Thick Cardstock by scoring it at 5-1/2' and cutting it at 4-1/4" and a Basic White card stock at 4"x-5-1/4" to stamp upon.
~  Using the heart punch to create a scallop that with the Sponge Dauber and Coastal Cabana blue for a cloud filled sky.
  ~  Stamping the greeting from the Banner Year stamp set (Save 10% when you score the bundle and coordinating punch!) in the Pacific Point ink.
~  Frame this out with the traditional blend of Rainbow colors using the Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Pacific Point and Gorgeous Grape inks.
~  Squeeze the Wink of Stella glimmer pen so it is 'juicy' then, with the edge of the bone folder flick across the hand stamped card front - make sure to have something below to protect your surface from rogue splatter - see the video for this and this additional tool tip:
****Tool Tip****
~  Using the Simply Shammy to clean each color off BUT ALSO to clean your hands if you smudge ALSO clean your crafting area - it's so important with this type card but also whenever you are crafting.
Don't forget the INSIDE - a dash of whimsy will make for a more cohesive handcrafted gift.

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
