Create these beautiful blossoms when you start with Vellum card stock.  Prep the surface with the Embossing Buddy (this provides a clean slate for a beautiful embossed image).  Stamp the flower from the Peaceful Petals stamp set (from the Occasions "Let's Celebrate" catalog) with Versa Mark watermark ink on the Vellum card stock. 
 
Liberally cover with Black Embossing Powder, shaking off any excess.  Heat set with the Heat Tool for a high shine outlined flower.
 
Using the Aqua Painter and the Summer Starfruit ink to paint the centers of the flowers.  This will coordinate with the pretty and FREE Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper and FREE Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.  The Aqua Painter and the Crisp Cantaloupe ink will fill the flower out with sheer beauty.  Here the Black Embossed Flower and Aqua Painted leaves mimics Stained Glass (YAY!).
This FREE Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper has a pretty coordinating FREE Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack with printed adhesive backed cork and three colored Baker's Twine!  Tie this cute accessory pack Baker's Twine for a fun embellishment.  The Cork Flowers are a great way to add a mixed medium accent.
Layer over a strip of the pretty and FREE Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper so the patterned paper will peak through.
Using the Glue Dots, a clear, small, strong adhesive to adhere two sides down so that the edges can still curl up.  This adds to the elegance of this card.
Create a Gift Card Envelope with a piece of the FREE Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper.  This will have a coordinated print and tie into the Pool Party card.  This is a great way to give a gift!!

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
