Loving Heart

Less is MORE?!?!
HARDLY!!
I want it ALL!!
Thissss Card has it ALL and
may even have the kitchen sink hidden inside,
HA, HA, HA!!
Please see ALL of these sweet little details and let me know what you think with a comment!
I don't usually have SUCH a collection of items... but when I was challenged to use a Scrapbooking layout to inspire a card.. I took my birthday pedi and perused Pinterest to see some fun inspiration.  HERE is a beautiful layout that I transferred into this sweet card!
Isn't it fun but challenging to create this card from this layout?  I used MANY elements to create this WOW card!
I started with our More Amore Designer Series Paper with this beautiful 'a Loving Heart is the truest wisdom'.  Framing it with our Brushed Silver cardstock that was run through the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Spring Mini) and Big Shot.  Using my Elegant Butterfly (Idea Book & Catalog) and my Bitty Butterfly (Spring Mini) Punches to pop out these textured butterflies.

With my Ciao, Baby! stamp set (Spring Mini) I captured this LOVE sentiment that perfectly coordinates with the Petite Curly Label Punch (Sale~A~Bration) and layering this perfectly punched dash of love with another sheet of our More Amore Designer Series Paper in the Curly Label Punch (Idea Book & Catalog).  Adding this Paper Clip Heart from our Cute Clips Elements collection (Spring Mini) is a fun dash of more love.

TOP it off (literally, lol) with our Collage Curios

Stamping OFF - this technique is a great way to get the look you may be seeking!  Simply Stamp Once and see the Darkest image, Continue to Stamp... and each image will get lighter!  Here with Basic Grey ink this Collage Curios scripted circle once stamped twice became the lighter look that I liked. 
 
Layering the Real Red inked Rose over this to tie in the Real Red and Basic Grey of the Designer Series Paper.  Punched out easily with our 1" Circle Punch and layered over our Soda Pop Top that I ran through my Big Shot and flattened a little bit.  (Flattening it also softens the edges a little.)
With our BEAUTIFUL Vintage Dimensional Flower Trim rubbed into the Real Red stamp pad.  These two tone roses now resemble my beloved Double Delight Roses... sigh... and fit perfectly in this card!
With our Glimmer Brads and Antique Brads add fun vintage elements to this card and are an easy way to embellish!
Tie this sweet card up with our Vintage Faceted Designer Series Buttons and our 3/8" Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon (Idea Book & Catalog) is a sweet way to wrap it up!
 
From the Large Pearl Basic Jewels (Idea Book & Catalog) and the Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels (Spring Mini) add luxury and Bling to this card.  Grouped in three is appealing to the eye, who knew it was cool to be 'odd'?!?! (ha, ha, ha)
When you pull all of these elements together, it's a different but awesome, multi element project inspired by a stunning scrapbook page!  This More Amore Designer Series Paper even has an aged/colored edge in Basic Grey.  Layering this over the Basic Grey card stock is easy peasy!
WHO would YOU give this card too and why?!?!

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
