Greeting Card Dress

Tea for Two... for me and for you....
Soooo I received an email asking that I show how to add a pattern to the outfits of the Greeting Card kids... so HERE it is! 
 
Video demo, too.. With the Desinger Series Paper in the Spring Mini 'Tea for Two' and the stitching and quilting of the paper... it's a natural use for the Material of the dress on this card!
Stamping the image on Very Vanilla Card Stock w/ Early Espresso ink then RE-Stamping it on the DSP... you can create this flowing, real looking dress to the sweet stamp. 
 
Using the Paper Snips and their precision cut it makes it easy to cut out the outfit and re-apply over the stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.
 
Using the Simply Scored Board I created this Lolly/Rosette from a 1-1/2" x 12" strip of paper, scored at every 1/4".  With the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits and Big Shot, these little hearts have various fabric textures over the 'quilted' and 'stitched' DSP!


The Sentiment from the Delightful Dozen greetings set fits perfectly in with the little Greeting Card girl, doesn't it?  Stamping the heart and cutting it out from one area of the DSP continues the theme... the Decorative Label punch fits perfectly and I cut extras to layer behind the sentiment.
 
The Blush Blossom Stampin' Write Marker is PERFECT To color in her tender skin.
Wouldn't YOU be HER Valentine?
 
HERE is a Video on the technique...
I hope you'll join me in creating these fun outfits!
 
HERE is that lil sweety from the video... isn't she just a doll??

The Stitching, mixed patterns and overall vintage feel... you can't go wrong with this little girl, her sweet gift of love or THIS OUTFIT! lol....
 
Thanks for coming by!  What would YOU do with this Tea for Two Designer Series Paper?

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
