My dear friend, Melinda, celebrated her birthday this week.. funny enough two of my close friends have birthdays one day apart... Red is her favorite color... so I hope that she feels rich with this Gold Foil dress and Cherry Cobbler 'signature' card.
Using my
Dress Up framelits dies (#130101),
Cherry Cobbler card stock (#119685),
Basic Black card stock (#121045),
Gold Foil Sheets (Holiday pg.28 #132622),
Square Lattice Embossing Folder (#119976) and
Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Holiday pg.24 #132175)
Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon (#119261)
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (#128748) and the
Word Window Punch (#119857)
this card comes to life.
 
Running the Cherry Cobbler card stock through the Big Shot and Pretty Print Embossing folder - this background makes an impression (lol).
 
Taking the Dress Up framelits and the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform the gold foil makes for a pretty accent.  Add a pretty dimension and texture with the Square Lattice embossing folder. 
 
Create a Dress Stand with the Dress Up framelits and Basic Black card stock.  Tie a cute bow with the ribbon and adhere with our Glue Dots (#103683)
Stamping this 'Happy Birthday' from the Teeny Tiny Wishes with Jet Black Stazon Ink (#101406) on the Gold Foil.  The Word Window is an ideal punch for this stamp set.  Layered together and adhered with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430). 
 
I'm so happy that you came by today!  Visit often, I try to post daily... bring your friends and family along, too!!  Grab a color and create something that screams style and create with it!
 
What is YOUR Signature Color and Style??  Go for it, pick a style or color and make it Your Own!  Creating this card in her signature colors and style (she's pretty feminine in a home full of men - lol) is a fun way to show I care.  Think about the person and celebrate what they love and their style...

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
