Create this card with:
Lovely Romance stamp set (#130264)
Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (#130140)
Soft Suede card stock (#115318)
Early Espresso card stock (#119686)
Champagne Stampin' Glass Glitter (#120997)
Gold Baker's Twine (#132975)
Gold Embossing Powder (#109129)
Versa Mark pad (#102283)
Embossing Buddy (#103083)
Heat Tool (#129053)
Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder (#130917)
Chalk Talk Framelits (#129983)

Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive (#104430)
Sticky Strip Adhesive (#104294)

Start with Embossing your Soft Suede card stock in the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.  You now have an elegant embossed/raised base for your card.
 
Create this Champagne Glass Border by applying the Sticky Strip adhesive on the edges.  Push in the Champagne Glass Glitter so that it is well held while reflecting elegance.  Layer the 'banner' of this stunning Soho Subway Designer Series Paper using the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.

The secret to a well embossed image is prepping your surface with the Embossing Buddy!  So prep your Early Espresso card stock with the Embossing Buddy. 

Stamp the image from the Lovely Romance with Versa Mark ink.  Liberally cover with the Gold Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Pop this image out with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Magnetic Platform and Chalk Talk Framelits.

Layer over the Banner Framelit (from the new Occasions Mini Catalog) die-cut Soho Subway banner. Banners are alllll the rage!  Have fun 'hanging' them out (lol).
The Sticky Strip Adhesive is one of the strongest on the market and will hold the glitter right where you want it!

Create subtle dimension by apply the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive between each layer.
Tie the Gold Baker's Twine (from the New Occasions Mini Catalog) into this sweet bow.  This just lends towards the vintage, elegant vibe of this card.
Ok so I SERIOUSLY have a LOVE of Fashion.... so as I often window shop on-line (Pinterest is so fun for this, lol) I can't help capture some inspiration!  This dress is a beauty and it's accessories are to die-for!  So creating this card, you can see the influence Fashion has on my paper-crafting and card-making!

With elegance, layers of textures and patterns, tied together for an rich look.. send this card to who you think is Amazing!

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
