Black and White Challenge

I'm the Proud Momma to five stunning girls....
So shopping for them is much like having full sized dress up dolls!!  When I saw these stunning dresses... I couldn't resist throwing down a fun CHALLENGE (oh and purchasing them for my girls - lol)!  Come Play Along... Create a project that is inspired by these stunning dresses.... WINNER (leave me a comment with a blog post or email me the Project at Jamie@GettinCraftyStampin.com ) will receive this card!
 
It was too hard to pick... so I purchased them allllllll! Bahahahaha.... (imagine a twisted laugh here - lol).
Four Dresses, Two Girls, TONS of Fun!
Below is myyyy take on this card!  Come back for the next few days - I'll have different ones inspired by the above wardrobe!  Those who submit with a comment or an email will have their submission posted on this blog!!
I adore Black and White, Satin and Lace... combine them for this cool vintage look!
With a Circle Card Thinlits Die (#133480), Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439) and Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658) you can create a moving card that is scored and cut for you!  Basic Black card stock (#121045) cut in 1/2 and scored at 2-1/2" it now creates this moving card with a flap and an area to write more!
 
These beautiful birds comes from the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (#126926).  Cut to create these great panels, the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (#122334) creates this beautiful Lolly/Rosette for the moving center of the card.
Our stunning Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons (#127555) is the center of this 'bow' create with our Victoria Crochet Trim (#118481).  Hot Glue holds the Rosette in place and this ribbon to cover the whole in the center.  It captures that elegant lace on the front of the dress...
 
This sharp Black Taffeta Ribbon (#119261) is trimmed in white. Held to the back of the card with Hot Glue, it's tied together and holds this moving card together... pull the ribbon and this is what happens...
The Rosette flips over and these Very Vanilla card stock (#101650) panels allow for you to write some inspiration.
Vintage, Classic Elegance inspired by these lovely dresses.    When a card moves, much like when a dress moves, it's sure to turn an eye or two.

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
