White on White on White

What is Black and White and Read all over....
(a newspaper/book/kindle - lol)
It's a favorite joke of my kids....
so when I create this card I wondered
What is White and White and White?!?!
 
Here you go, a Sneak Peak into our New Catalog and a different Mod Style Inspired card!
When I see this Mosaic Pattern I am brought back to my childhood and watching Agent Smart with my parents... the thick black liquid eye liner, white go go boots and white mosaic used in fashion and decoration.  (I think my love of fashion, boots and eye make-up came early in my life, lol.)

With our New Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper with two beautiful Whisper White quatrefoil printed window sheets... our Big Shot (#113439), New Modern Mosiac Embossing Folder (#129984), the Delicate Details Lace Tape, our adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels... tied together with the help of our Sticky Strip adhesive (#104294) and Whisper White Baker's Twine (#124262). 
With a 4-1/4" x 6" piece of Whisper White card stock (#100730).  Our Stampin' Trimmer (#126889) makes scoring easy with it's dual blade ability, it can cut andddd score!  (Score, baby!! lol)  Adhere the Red Sticky Strip - it's double sided - so you peel it from the roll and adhere where you want, cutting off any unnecessary length.  When placed where you want it, you can use your Bone Folder (#102300) to re-fold the scored and adhesive covered sections. 
Our Detail Lace Tape is a pop of additional white on this card... and oh so easy to add!!  These window sheets are awesome, aren't they?!?!
Removing the backing on ONE side of the card of the Sticky Strip, the adhesive is now VERY Sticky and Clear!  Tuck the Modern Mosaic embossed piece of 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Whisper White card stock under the other covered adhesive 1/4" lip.  This will assure that it can become a tri-folded card and close correctly!
The section I left on the edge, behind the Detail Lace Tape is where I will adhesive the other side/top of the card.
The Modern Mosaic embossing is the boss - lol - isn't it?!?!  (Having Pun, yet?!?! bahahaha)
I can't wait to coordinate it with our New Mosaic paper punch (#131267) and coordinating stamps, papers, etc!
 

The inside looks like soooo.. the flaps are hidden and yet the Sticky Strip and 1/4" scored flaps do the job!
Closing the Card and the Embossed flap down before removing and adhering the Window Sheet prevents any sticky situations, lol.
BAM and pretty all white tri-fold card that is sure to brighten someone's day!  What would YOU stamp on the inside?!??  I'm thinking a Silver Embossed greeting... leave me a comment and let me know, baby, wedding, anniversary, birthday...
what do you think?!?!!
It's subtle but the pattern on pattern on pattern in all Whisper White is elegant, crisp and fresh - like freshly laundered white clothes...
a rich look that is easy to achieve!
Tied up, this Baker's Twine hides the subtle gloss of the Sticky Strip while coordinating with the card!  The dash of sparkly is very rich looking, at a lower cost.  Who doesn't love sparkle?!?!!!
So, one of our last Bible Study meetings this shirt inspired this card!  This beautiful white on white card, elegant, sheer, refined inspired me to play with this look!  What do YOU think?!?!  What inspires YOU?!?!!  (leave me a comment and let me know)
I LOVE the results and trying to capture it in a picture is challenging - lol.  I hope that this comes across with the cool elements and all white theme.
What do YOU Think?!?!
All one Color - devoid of color... actually I never did understand how White's art definition is a combination of all color while black is devoid.. seriously, have you seen what mixing all color looks like?!?!  (Come to my house, my kids will be glad to demonstrate that - lol.)  CLICK HERE to see a definition of colors... how funny is that?!?!

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
