Blooming Butterfly

It is always fun to see an unexpected card.  Here is a twist on the usual Butterfly or Flower Card.
 
Stephany is the original creator for this card and WOW is she amazing!  As a fun swap for the 25th Anniversary of Stampin' Up! Convention it was a HIT!
With a Pumpkin Pie card stock (#105117) as the base for this card, our Swallowtail (#129216) background stamp comes to life.  Powder the paper with our Embossing Buddy (#103083) as it's the BFF to the Heat Tool and Embossing Powders.
The butterfly is crisp with our Versa Mark pad (#102283) and Iridescent Ice embossing powder (#101930).  The Iridescent Ice has a slew of colors that reflect out and really tie into many projects for a subtle and fun bling accent.
The thump, thump, thump of my heart... when I see colorful projects my heart skips a beat.  Here the Blooming with Kindness stamp set (#126422) this twist becomes a colorful card.
 
Color the adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) with a Red Permanent Marker (Bic or Sharpie style markers) and adding it to the middle creates a focal point.
 
See the Video BELOW to see a step by step on how to Thump color into any project.
Stamping this flower in Daffodil Delight ink (#126944) and then using my Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers thumped lightly on the side for this vibrant muli-tonal look.  Painting the stem in the Old Olive with the Stampin' Write Marker is easy and fun.  (Brights come in a wonderful color marker collection #131259).
POP this flower out with my Window Frame framelit collection (#129021).  The new Big Shot Magnet Platform is a wonderful tool in placing my framelits right where I want them!  I adore my Big Shot Die-Cutting machine (#113439) so ask me how YOU can have it for FREE or even 1/2 Off!

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
