Roses at a Pool Party

Spring is in the Air...
at our home the roses are starting to bud,
roses are soon to grow...
as a Favorite flower of mine, I've tried to grow Blue Roses for years - but they never grow.  Sigh... but I digress...
 
I wanted to capture Spring with this card....
what do you think?
(Leave me a comment and let me know.)

Our Artisan Embellishments Kit and Pool Party Core'dinations Card Stock (both Spring Mini) and the Embossing Manhattan Flower Folder in the Big Shot create this card.  It's layered over a Crumb Cake card stock base.
 
The Pool Party Core'dinations Card Stock with a monochromatic, lighter colored center.  When embossed and using the Stampin' Sanding System the flowers become a lighter color.  The distressed look of the paper is pretty, too. 
To make the lace from the Artisan Embellishment kit wrinkle up, weave the paper rose in through the lace and then tie the metal wire rose stem and it will scrunch up.
Mini Glue dots placed along the back of the rose stem will hold down the lace to the Core'dinations embossed and sanded card stock. 
 
I couldn't resist applying (with the use of the Mini Glue dots) this stunning Vanilla Resin Rose to the top.  It's a vintage look and easy to accomplish!
Don't you just 'Love' this card?
Isn't it Just the 'ticket'?!?! lol
Adding the Love Designer Ticket from the Artisan kit and it's a romantic, love inducing card, isn't it?!?!
 
This lace has the cutest little flowers woven in and a subtle shimmer to the vanilla lace ribbon.  Don't miss this deluxe embellishment kit... it's too cute to miss out on!
  By Summer my garden will be in full bloom. 
Roses and flowers growing, butterflies fluttering, humming birds feeding.... but sadly, no blue rose in sight.. (lol).
 
Have YOU played with our Core'Dination card stock?
With three seasonal colors - available for a limited time - it may be hard to pick one color... get all three
(Spring Mini - Pool Party, Primrose Petals, & Real Red). 
Don't forget the Stampin' Sanding System and maybe an embossing folder... see if YOU qualify for a
FREE Sale~A~Bration item - before THEY are gone!
 
 I LOVE this Season!
Welcome Spring into your life, no matter the weather outside.. pull out some Spring-inspired colors and stamps, embellishments and accessories...
it's sure to warm up any one's day!

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
