With Spring on the horizon this floral watercolor card really captures the warmth and new life of that season.  Inspired by this beautiful Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper* and it's stunning stained glass looking floral page the Gumball Green seems like an ideal base to begin.
 
I took this card two ways and hope you enjoy the difference in style.  Here luxurious pearls find their home in the center of the Watercolor Wonder flowers.  The Gumball Green Satin Stitched Ribbon ties this card together.
 
Embossed the Flower Garden Embossing Folder for a fun raised and subtle texture to the card.
Flip the Embossing Folder over to DeBoss (the opposite of embossing) this Silver Ribbon ties the Rhinestone accented page together.  BALANCE the card when you hang the banner on the opposite side of the embossed/debossed flowers.  Raise the Flag (lol) when you use our Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to add more depth to this card.
Stamping this Peaceful Petals stamp under the Perfect Pennants sentiment Island Indigo ink stamped and framelit die-cut out banner.  It is subtle but oh so elegant. 
No matter if you are a bling or pearl kind of person, you can make this project to fit just your (or whomever you are sending it to's) style.
 
Thank you for coming by today!  As it's warm in our So.Cal area I look forward to Winter and then the new life of Spring!  (It's a crazy 73* here in Southern California on Dec. 29th - eek!)  Please come and visit often, celebrate life and create works of art.  I try to post daily and hope to have you visit often.  Please bring your family and friends along for the ride... share me!
 
Creating this with my friend Elizabeth, she's having a hard time of life as of late... we enjoyed playing and talking, drinking coffee while letting our kids play.  This card embodies her life's motto (and mine).  Go ahead, life is hard... but find moments of wonder and celebrate - even if it's just in your heart.  I'm beyond excited about the new Occasions Mini Catalog* and would love to give you one... let's connect!

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
