Roses are Red, Violets are Blue... Valentines

My oldest daughter suggested a
Roses are Red, Violets are Blue Valentines card...
THIS is what I created from her suggestion!
 
Grabbing my
~  Honeycomb Embossing Folder (Spring Mini)
~  Perfect Plum Card Stock and MATCHING Taffeta Ribbon
(I LOVE the matching/coordinating part of it!)
~  Color Coach (one of my favorite tools!)
~  Rose Red Stampin' Write Marker,
Marina Mist Stamp Pad
~  Delightful Dozen and Elements of Style stamp sets
and I went to TOWN!  (Valentines Town, baby!)

Stamping the Rose branch on the
Very Vanilla Card Stock with Marina Mist... the Rose Red Stampin' Write Marker highlights ONLY the Rose Blossoms.
Highlight the Heart in the
Be My Valentine from the
Delightful Dozen stamp set
with the same marker to keep a cohesive look. 
The Color Coach suggests the Perfect Plum, Rose Red and Marina Mist as a combination...
I was unsure how to create a Roses are Red, Violets are Blue card - but this was a unique way to capture the feel of this sentiment/limerick. 
The Honeycomb Embossing Folder and
Big Shot lend to a Trellis feel.
The card can lay both ways...
a fun way to get two different feels.

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
Sugar is Sweet and
So Are YOU!
(Be My Valentine, Won't You?)
 
Thanks, Gloria, I love the suggestion for a out of the norm Valentines card!  (love you, baby!)

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
