Pink framed flower

Want to create a quick frame?? It's easy! With our Big Shot one can create a frame with texture and frame the loveliest of images!

Here I used a fun technique called Baby Wipe Stamping. It's easy and can create the coolest of images! Here with this stunning flower from the stamp set Blooming with Kindness I created a pink tie died effect.

Using a baby wipe I took re inkers in Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink and dropped them in a general circle on the baby wipe (Use a protective plate under the wipe as the color do seep through. I'd recommend, too, not a paper plate.). I randomly dropped the Pretty in Pink ink the filled in with Melon Mambo.

Having created a fun lil stamp pad (this is good to use for multiple applications). I stamped this stunning flower to ink it up (just like a regular stamp pad). I then stamped the image on our Shimmer Paper. It created multi level pink tie died looking flower! I cut the flower out with our Paper Snips.

I then took a card front (1/4 of an 8 1/2" x 11" paper) and I cut out this window frame with a Framelit from the Labels Collection. Having this cute frame was great but unwanted some texture. I thought the new Fancy Fan Folder mimicked the shape of the flower I'd cut out.

Here I adhered the flower (with SNAIL adhesive) to the frame so that it peeked out how I liked. I then layer the frame down to figure where I wanted my sentiment to be. This helped me not guess where the sentiment would lay.

I used our adorable new slider (from the Holiday Mini) on a Pretty in Pink ribbon and adhered it down with SNAIL adhesive.

Using our Dimensional adhesive I layered the frame on the front of this Pretty In Pink card. There is real depth when you add that Dimensional adhesive!! How, the flower peaks out? The ribbon n slider are already adhered and the sentiment is perfectly placed! I LOVE the monochromatic tie died flower and the subtle shimmer of the Shimmer Paper!

What do you think?? What would you frame? Don't you just love the Subtle layered levels and how the adhesive really lends to a real frame?? You can really frame anything (pictures, stamps, punched flowers or animals, texture... Anything!!).

I hope you have fun framing pretty things in your life!!

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
