Mail a Rich Bouquet of Flowers in this hand-stamped card

Rich jewel tones can be a great way to brighten someone's day with warmth, color and beauty.  Giving jewels can be quite the endeavor... give a similar feel when you gift rich colored flowers!  Creating rich colored, hand-stamped cards and sending them is a great way to give a lasting flower.  So go ahead, send a bunch of flowers with a hand-stamped card.
Create this card with:
People Like You stamp (#133215)
Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (#130134)
Shimmery White card stock (#101910)
Basic Grey card stock (#121044)
Basic Black ink (#126980)
White Stampin' Chalk Marker (#132133)
Brights Stampin' Write Markers (#131259)
Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers (#131261)
 
Layer the Rich Razzleberry fan like paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack over the Basic Grey card stock.  This fan mimics the flower shape from the People Like You stamp.
I love that flowers often have a shimmer and extra velvety beauty... add this to your card when you use the stunning and subtle sparkled Shimmery White card stock!  The subtle shimmer is hard to photograph but adds a richness and elegance to your stamped projects!
 
Using the Basic Black ink and the People Like You stamp (from the Occasions 'Let's Celebrate' catalog) you stamp it on the Shimmery White card stock.
 
Color the blossoms in with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Write Marker from the Brights Stampin' Write Marker collection.  Color the stem with the Old Olive from the Brights Stampin' Write Marker collection and highlight the frame on the sentiment with the Basic Grey Stampin' Write Marker from the Neutrals collection.
 
Accent this dark flower with loose lines that mimic the petal shape.  The White Stampin' Chalk Marker (from the Occasions Mini Catalog) is a great way to add depth and drama with your colorful or darker projects.  This effect also mimics the patterned Rich Razzleberry Designer Series paper for a beautiful coordinated look.
 
(One of my FAVORITE Tools is the Color Coach #130118 that aides in a color wow project.  I use it on almost every project and here the Rich Razzleberry with Basic Grey and Old Olive look 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
