Quick WOW Christmas Cards that are Whimsical, Dr. Seuss and 1950's Retro inspired

 What is your favorite Christmas movie?

My childhood memories, laying on the floor of my Grandparent's home, watching Dr. Seuss and The Grinch to Charlie Brown... to these days and Hallmark type movies - The Christmas Card (a few years older, 2007, but has stuck with me and become a favorite!).  I'm so very excited to live in the CUTEST little town that has wonderful movie type feels - our first Christmas here has me so excited!!  

In a nod to Cindy Lou Who, the Grinch and those pink Christmas decorations - lol.... these two PINK Christmas Handmade Greeting Cards come to life!

From the cutest whimsical tree stamped inside - in PINK - lol.. you can have such fun with wow but quick and easy non-traditional Christmas cards.  TWO for ONE on this one!
~  Embracing the Expressions in Ink STUNNING, vibrant and gold foil accented Designer Series Paper... here I trimmed the paper to 3-3/4"x5".
~ Stamping the Whimsical Trees stamp set greeting on the card fronts (here we did Stazon Black on one and Polished Pink on the other) before you adhesive it to the card front.
~  Framed with Polished Pink card stock (4"x 5-1/4") on a Thick Basic White Card base (Scored at 4-1/4" Cut at 5-1/5") adhesive together with our Stampin' Seal + adhesive.  
~  Stamping the ornaments in Stazon Black Ink (a solvent ink that can stamp on non porous surfaces) and Die-Cutting them and the Tree in the Gold Foil with our Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine.
~  Die Cut the tree 'string of lights' with Basic White card stock.
~  Adhesive this to the Gold Foil Tree using our Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and using a Silicone Sheet to adhesive it down with less mess!
~  Using Stampin' Dimensionals and the Mini versions (those tiny ornaments!) for a pop or WOW to this handmade card.
Like any good artist... 
Sign your cards!
Stamping the back of the card in the Polished Pink is a fun way to add fun (do this to your envelopes also!).  Then WITHOUT RE-Inking - stamp the inside for a stamped-off soft image that you can write over even!

WHICH of these two cards are your favorite??

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
