Modern Love hand-stamped card

Show some love to those in your life with this modern, classic mix of black, vanilla and cherry cobbler.  A clean and simple hand-stamped and embossed card is a great way to send some quick love!  Raise about the rest with this fashion inspired, quick, embossed, hand-stamped card!!
Create this card with:
Language of Love stamp set (#133077)
Basic Black card stock (#121045)
Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)
Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (#126926)
Red Glimmer Paper (#121790)
Versa Mark pad (#102283)
Embossing Buddy (#103083)
Cherry Cobbler embossing powder (#122949)
Heat Tool (#129053)
Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599)
Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Expressions Thinlits (Retired from the Holiday Mini)
Crystal Effects liquid adhesive (#101055)

Layering this Basic Black card stock with the Very Vanilla (here I applied 1/2" Strips to the side to mimic a full backing... this saves paper, makes for a lighter card yet still looks good).  Layer the Very Vanilla inner lining (what wasn't cut, again not wasting paper). 

Using the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Magnetic Platform and Hearts framelits punch out this heart on the front of the card.
Using the Expressions Thinlits and Magnetic Platform in the Big Shot this Red Glimmer 'Love' is the perfect accent to the front of this card!  Here the love overlaps over the heart to keep it all connected.  Crystal Effects liquid adhesive is great in situations where you have little space but need strong hold!  It dries clear and is one of our strongest adhesives!!  The Red Glimmer Paper is a strong card stock strength... lending to it's ability to stand up to the front of this card, too!

Sadly, not every product that Stampin' Up! offers carries to the Main Catalogs... so grab these great finds and use them... when they are gone, they are gone!  Ask ME to show you Myyyy favorite items from the catalogs so that you don't miss out!!
 
The Language of Love stamp set (from the Occasions 'Let's Celebrate' Mini catalog) is so stinkin' cute!  I adore the many languages (of which I speak a few)!
 
Prepare the surface with the Embossing Buddy.  Stamp this love language heart with Versa Mark ink (when the card is closed, using the punched heart as a guide).  Open the card, cover the image with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder and shake off the excess.  Heat set with our quiet Heat Tool and you have a raised, beautiful red heart that says it all!
Inspiration??  Heck YEAH!!  I adore fashion!  Snapping this dress from Pinterest I just knew I'd have to use it for a card design.  So much of what I love about fashion translates right to Paper Crafting!!  Textures, colors, quality, beauty.... don't you love how this dress inspired this card??  (I love this look but think she needs a pop of color.. add a red accessory to this dramatic outfit for flair!)

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
