I "Heart" 3D Flowers

I love using symbols to say a word...
then again, it can bother me at times, lol.
So this I "Heart" flowers is a fun spin on using Heart Punched card stock and loving this 3D flower.
 
When the ladies in my Parks and Rec/Borchard class asked me for a 3D flower, I couldn't resist creating this flower and card.
 
Here are the pieces and even a video (at the bottom) on how to create this fun flower!!  The possibilities are limitless!
Here with the aide of our Full Heart punch (#119883), Small Heart punch (#117193), our Certainly Celery* card stock (#105125), Riding Hood Red* card stock (#111348) and Pretty In Pink* card stock (#100459) for this WOW card!
With my ever faithful hot glue gun and our Stampin' Up! Silicone Craft Sheet (#127853) you can build amazing flowers and more!!  Centering it with the smaller flowers and our Designer Series Buttons* that are in the same card stock and ink colors!
Layered over our Twitterpated * (#125406) Designer Series Paper for two very different looks!  The sheet with all Riding Hood Red is a great look but so is the multi colored roses from the same packet!
The hearts are amazing leaves/petals!  Straight up or rounded with the aide of our Bone Folder (#102300). 
Coordinating ink makes for a great look, here the Riding Hood Red* ink (#126968) where this Hostess stamp Stack of Wishes (#126430) these sentiments fit perfectly in our 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch (#118874) and mimic the flowery feel of this card.
Sweet, Elegant and fun, but this flower is going to require a larger than norm envelope (lol).   Too, it probably (lol) shouldn't be mailed. 
Whoooooo wouldn't want to receive this fun card?
This is a flower that won't lose it's petals, smell funny or need to be cleaned up, all while sure to cheer for a very long time!
Change up the colors, the shape (with the aide of our amazing tools) and more... it's timeless and sure to WOW!!
Two very different looks...
I asked my BFF, Kate, and one of my older sisters, Tess, which was herrrr favorite.  I was very surprised by their answers... both opposite of what Iiiii thought they'd say!
 (Kate like the all red and Tess liked the pink and red combo, huh, who knew!!)

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
