Inspired by a dear friend, Georgia, who adored the Christmas Stained Glass cards and placed an order for the components but needed a refresher on how to use it... so this card is a great way to show that!
This card is a fun and unique to have layers.
Using the Embossing Buddy and powdering the Vellum card stock for a well prepared surface.  Stamp this pretty flower from the Peaceful Petals stamp set with Versa Mark ink.  Cover with the Black Embossing Powder.  Shake off any excess.  Heat set with the Heat Tool for a shiny, raised image (much like stained glass looks).
 
Here I layered it over the fun polka dot page from the FREE* Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper for a unique background.  The vellum mutes the polka dots yet lets their colors and image add to the page.
 
Once set, if you want to add color, use the Aqua Painter and paint in the leaves (here with Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding).  It's pretty and coordinated for a pulled together look.
Both make a statement. 
 
Keeping for a cohesive look, prep the surface of the Crisp Cantaloupe card stock with the Embossing Buddy.  Stamp this Thank You with the Versa Mark ink, cover with the Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.  It's pretty and shines, just like the flowers.
Adhere the Vellum to the Sweet Sorbet with Glue Dots and then tie this when you wrap the Whisper White Bakers Twine around the two pieces.  A cute and simple bow adds to the project.
Liking both, I'm torn... which is YOUR Favorite and Why?  Leave me a comment and let me know, I will pick a winner and send them the card of their choice.

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
