Raspberry Ripple Roses

I am farrrr from a gardener but
I LOVE growing roses!
A beautiful plant that shares it's beauty with the world,
you don't see it's thorns until you are close,
isn't this like most of us??
I LOVE that it takes very little to grow them, as well.
This busy mom doesn't have much time to
maintain a garden - lol.
Sending a card to my dear, long time, friend and downline Sarah, I wanted to send her a card that is
full of color and warmth, like she is! 
HERE is what I came up with, what do you think?
 Have you SEEN our New 5/8"
Vanilla Flower Trim (Spring Mini)?!?!  WOW!!
With many uses - from using one flower to a line or like this creating a RING of Flowers!  The Shaker Frames, are a great adhesive and create a perfect wreath of roses! 
(Thanks Jackie Topa for the idea!)
 
Using my Raspberry Ripple Stampin' Write Marker to color the edges of the roses is very much like my
Double Delight roses! 
I like that the Shaker Frame creates this wreath and the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack (Spring Mini) has a vast variety to use, different styles and colors... this being one of the pages!  The Raspberry Ripple pattern and how the scrolled circles embrace the wreath is ideal.
 
Using the new Collage Curios stamp set (Spring Mini) has a wonderful assortment of patterns,
here the Pretty In Pink is the Monochromatic BFF
(according to the Color Coach) to Raspberry Ripple.  Layering the circle scrolled text under the Rose.
The 1" circle punch fits the Collage Curios collection perfectly. Here it is now framed by the wreath.
Adding the Pearls Basic Jewels to surround is a sweet addition, like a wreath in a wreath, warm and luxurious.
Loving Thoughts is a wonderful greeting stamp set and this lovely script fits the feel of the card!

  How do YOU show your appreciation?
I'm blessed to have good friend like Sarah and
doubly blessed to have her as my downline!
I hope that she feels the love with this card...
 
Get YOU, yours!
The Vintage Dimensional tulle roses come in 2 yard length like ribbon!  Cut One off or use a bunch... either way,
WOW those you appreciate with a
simple technique that says sooo much!

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
