To create this card you will need:
Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper (#130144)
Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)
Tangerine Tango card stock (#111349)
Tangerine Tango stamp pad (#126946)
Crisp Cantaloupe stamp pad (#131176)
Soft Suede stamp pad (#126978)
Aqua Painter (#103954)
Dazzling Details (#124117)
Antique Brads (#117273)
Victoria Crochet Lace Trim (#118481)
Regarding Dahlias stamp set (#130324)
Labels Collection Framelits (#125598)
Adhere the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper to the front of the Tangerine Tango card.  Run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the largest of the Label Collection Framelits.... making sure to leave the folded edge with area for the seam to remain intact.
 
Stamping the Regarding Dahlias flower on Very Vanilla card stock with the Soft Suede ink ties in the pretty patterned Venetian Romance paper. 
 
Paint, with the Aqua Painter, Crisp Cantaloupe across the leaves in the direction they flow.  Then go and do the same with the Tangerine Tango ink accenting the edges of the leaves.. this doesn't take long, creating a soft water colored flower. 
 
Adding sparkle with our Dazzling Details Glitter Adhesive is easy when you place a drop in the lid of the Antique Brads and use the Aqua Painter to blend across the flower. 
 
Cut out with our Paper Snips for a flower that appears to move.  Layer it with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive so it raises above the pattern while coordinating with it.
Add the Victoria Crochet Trip to the edges for a blended edge that continues the vintage look.  Tucking the Antique Brad so that the edges open under the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper... a beautiful accent.
Stamping inside this card has left a ton of room to write a note.  The shape of the card is a fun twist on your standard card.
Celebrate the Fall Season when you send a friend this fun, fast and vintage card.  I love this paper, stamp and how it all comes together, don't you??
 
I love that you came by today!  Please come back often, visit and bring others with you.  I try to post daily... so join me in this crafting walk we call life!

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
