It's Amazing How You Sparkle!

There are times when it's fun to celebrate someone who lights up your life!  They Sparkle and Shine.  'Amazing You' covers so many celebrations and this vintage inspired card is sure to bedazzle whomever receives it!
Created to celebrate an amazing friend... this card is inspired by this stunning vintage dress!
This dress took my breath away!  a fun Pinterest Pin... I just couldn't resist creating a jeweled, feathered card that is sure to add bling to a friend's day!  This Mono-Chromatic card is far from one-dimensional or dull, lol.
The base of Smoky Slate card stock (#131202) gives me a soft grey look.  This Smoky Slate picks up the attributes of silver... I love 'chameleon' colors like this.
Stamping the Fine Feathers (#126517) in Smoky Slate ink (#131179) on Whisper White card stock (#100730) and quickly cover the wet ink with Iridescent Ice embossing powder (#101930).  Heat set with our Heat Tool (#129053).  This glittered embossing powder is clear with pretty flecks of iridescent sparkle, oh so pretty!
 
Placing adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) in the center of the Peacock feather for a rich jeweled look!
Taking Tea Lace Paper Doilies (#129399) and add adhesive to the edges.  Here this Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755) with the broad tip (it has two tips for different needs).  Apply the Silver Stampin' Glitter (#132205 - Holiday pg.29) for a fun effect.
 
Amazing you is from the Hostess Exclusive Express Yourself stamp set (#130339).  Join me as a Hostess for a Private Class where I bring you the fun and you earn the Shopping Spree!  Stamped in Smoky Slate ink, framed with these linked adhesive backed Rhinestones (#119246) for an uber fun blinged card!

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
