Yellow Roses Sparkle

Some days I wish I could wear fancy clothes...
and not end up with kids
sticky fingers and juice on it... lol.
(It's a season ~ I tell myself daily - lol)
 
I'm not sure I'd be able to pull of the Bling of this dress.. unless I was a red carpet event person... but I'm not and happily so
(who'd want to have those photos in publication?!?! eek!). 
When I doooo have the desire for such attire,
I just craft it!!
Our Over the Rainbow card class was a BLAST! 
THIS card was such fun to create! 
Using our Silver Glimmer Paper (12x12" card stock covered in glitter... from the Idea Book and Catalog - it's essential to ANY crafter's collection!!) and my Daffodil Delight ink with the aide of my Brayer we altered the color to match the
Daffodil Delight card stock.
(See the Video, below, for a step by step how-to!)
Utilizing the Big Shot (a Must-Have tool for ANY crafter!) and the Manhattan Flower Folder (Idea Book & Catalog) this rose textured card comes to life!
 
Embossing the Vintage Verses (Sale~A~Bration) stamp set, Versa Mark, White Embossing Powder and our Heat Gun* (Idea Book & Catalog) this sentiment comes to life, is glossy and raised with one of the coolest techniques.  (*My kids call it mommy's magic! lol)
 
Our Basic Jewels Pearls sheet has 150 adhesive backed pearls for LESS Than $5!! (Wow!) 
 
This NEW and Stunning Vanilla 5/8" Flower Trim (Spring Mini) has 2 FULL and Loaded yards of Vintage dimensional flowers on strips of tulle!!  This Video (below) has one of the many ways to color in the flower and BAM it is now matching the rest of the card!!!
 
Where would YOU wear a dress like this?!?!
Leave me a comment and let me know!

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
