Dream Silhouettes Sunset hand-stamped card

I love a card that is resplendent in color (how often can you use 'resplendent'? lol).  This card is loaded with color for a lovely sunset look.  This pretty card is from our recent Colorful Card Class.  Did you miss out??  Join me in sending a sunset and some beauty to those you love with this cool technique.
Create this Sunset Silhouette card with:
*Loving Thoughts stamp set (#128436w/125845c)
Serene Silhouette stamp set (#132073w/127324c)

This colorful card is super pretty and easy to do!  Here I started with a Whisper White card stock cut down 1/4" on each side.  Using a sticky note (or scrap piece of paper) and block off the top 1/3 of the paper.
 
'Load' the Brayer by rolling it in the Old Olive card stock and rolling across the bottom third of the page.  This will create a clean line for a pretty scenic look.
 
Flip the sticky note/spare paper to cover the Old Olive colored section.  Load the Brayer by rolling it in the Pumkin Pie on one half and the Rich Razzleberry on the other half.  Roll it for a sunset variegated look. 
 
These colors are rich and stunning - the Color Coach helps pair them together.  Did you know... that you can pair the colors from any color family and as long as you balance it, it will look good together??  Yes... when pairing colors, use percentages.  Chose a primary color and reduce any other colors by 50% of the last.  Try not to use more than 3 colors as it can be too busy (not a rule, I have seen many a stunning card full of color but this can go 'bad' quickly).
Using the Jet Black Stazon ink pad, stamp the 'Dare to dream' sentiment from one of my favorite and soon to retire *Loving Thoughts stamp set.  Stamping this along the 'horizon'.
 
Stamp this pretty flower silhouette from the Serene Silhouette stamp set.   This creates a stunning sunset look that is sure to wow.
 
Layer over the Rich Razzleberry card stock base for a rich and elegant card.  I love our color coordinated products... sigh.

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
