Tulip me this...

Tulip me this... After one Stamp Camp at my home, some of my girlfriends stayed after and were talking... we whipped out the Big Shot as they asked me where I got my inspiration from... So I started off w/ the Bella Toile Background stamp and grabbed my Glossy White Paper. I asked what color they wanted - they wanted the retired Pink Pirouette so I grabbed that pad and paper.

We inked up the stamp and stamped on the front of the Glossy White Card stock the pretty and delicate Bella Toile. Then we grabbed the Tulip Bigz Die and my Big Shot... we cranked out the Tulip in the Pink Pirouette and adhered it on w/ my snail... then we grabbed the Lt. Pink Organza ribbon and punched w/ my Dbl Rectangle Punch the corner. Tied a Pretty and sweet little bow... we stamped various words from Warm Words stamp set and tied it to the ribbon...

There became a sweet and simple card that looks stunning and vintage. Perfect for a Bridal Shower, Wedding, New Baby, Birthday or Anniversary card. See the next card to see how I used the Punched out Tulip cardstock to make a different card. Reuse, Recycle... make the world a better and prettier place....

Recipe:
Stamps: Bella Toile background stamp, Warm Words
Papers: Glossy White, Pink Pirouette (Pretty in Pink will sooo work for this!!)
Inks: Pink Piroette (again - Pretty In Pink will look amazing)
Extras: Double Rectangles, Word Window, BigZ Tulip Die, and Lt. Pink Organza Ribbon

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

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
