Lacey Black & White Challenge

Lace Dresses, Accent, Vintage or New, Died, Colored, Black or Cream too!  I love that lace has returned!!  When I recently purchased a collection of Black and White Dresses for my girls (seriously another happy moment) there was great Lace Accent.  Tossing out THIS CHALLENGE was fun and YOU Can Participate, too!!
 
Stephany created this stunning card in an answer to the challenge and I can't tell you howwwww much I love it!!  (Great Job Stephany!!)  Remember to Leave Us a Comment and Let us know what you think!!  Share this with a Pin, Facebook, Tweet, Instagram and more!  Join ME on those channels, too!!
These STUNNING Thinlits are a New Product to Stampin' Up! and work PERFECTLY with Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439) and the New (and may I say AWESOME) Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658).  See the Video Below on how to create a Secret (and Cool) Panel with these new Thinlits (while not wasting any paper).
 
Here the Very Vanilla card stock (#101650) is the center piece to this card.  Accented with Black Permanent Marker colored in Rhinestones (#119246) for cool black/onyx feeling accents.  (This retired but stunning flower trim is a great accent, too!)
 
Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (#126926) accents this frame and bottom of this card.  Adding Victoria Crochet Trim (#118481) and the Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon (#119261) for a pulled together look.
The Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder (#129984) creates a great coordinated trellis look.  This MOVING Card (sigh here with me - I love interactive cards!!) is uber easy thanks to this Thinlit!!
 
Adding this Hostess Exclusive stamp set 'Express Yourself' (#130339) for a 'love you' sentiment is easy with the Black Embossing Powder (#109133) and Heat Tool (#129053) for a sharp, shiny look.  Same with this Mixed Bunch stamp (#125537) for the inside coordination.
Fashion Inspiration!!

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
