Aren't Bees Grey-T

I Love them... Bees...
With Out Bees, we will not make it...
Food couldn't grow...
I LOVE that they are so trendy right now, too...
they are classic, aren't they?
Here is a very Mod, Clean, Grey card for you, what do you think?  Leave me a comment and let me know.
Here with the use of the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (#125406) that has the honeycomb print in shades of grey and white that was embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#129378).  It doesn't line up but this lends to the edginess of this card. 
 
Layered over our Basic Grey (#121044) card stock, this is a mellow but sharp, monochromatic card. 
Running the Soda Pop Tops (#129388) through my Big Shot (#113439) causes it to morph from a Bottle Top to a Medallion!  Stamping the Collage Curios (#129102) script twice to create this softer looking script of Basic Grey ink (#126981) on Whisper White card stock (#100730). 
 
POWDER the image with our Embossing Buddy (#103083) to place a barrier over the inked image.  Stamp the circle and bee from the Collage Curios with Versa Mark (#102283).  Liberally apply Silver Embossing Powder (#109131) and Heat Set with the Heat Tool (#129053) for this sharp, elegant look.
Punching the image out with our 1" Circle Punch (#119868) and adhering it to the medallion made from the Soda Pop Top that we modified into a medallion. 

Layer this over our 1-1/4" Two Tone Ribbon.  This Basic Grey/Basic Black woven silky smooth ribbon looks amazing when wrapped around the edge of the embossed, patterned paper for a sharp, refined, finished look.  Elegance is about the little details, isn't it?
Masculine?  Refined??  Mod???
Sure, all of this and MORE!  I'm not ultra feminine and this card is soooo my style, it fits me! 
(I'm sure it'll fit many different people, from those men in your life to a sassy woman like me - lol.)
Go Trendy with me, refined, fun, understated....
It speaks on it's own, doesn't' it?   
Join in on the FUN and CREATE while Celebrating those in your life and spreading cheer and love.

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
