Fashion Friday Cherry Blossom Dress inspired hand-stamped card

Spring has sprung (and here in So. California - it seems like we bypassed Spring and landed mid-Summer - with 102*- ugh).  When I think of Spring the first thing I think of is Cherry and Almond Blossoms on newly budding trees.  So this Fashion Friday see this cute, feminine, Punch-Art card that embodies Spring while celebrating Fashion and this retro-cool dress!

Create this Cherry Blossom, Retro-Cool Dress inspired card with:
Flowering Flourishes stamp set (#131998w/126367c)
*Express Yourself stamp set (#130336w/130339c)
Tea Lace Paper Doily (#129399)

Creating this pretty Cherry Blossom inspired card in our Colorful WOW Card Class was a blast!  Here with the Pansy Punch (and Petite Petals Punch) creating these flowers in the Blushing Bride card stock.  Use the White Stampin' Chalk Marker to create a pop of white in the center. 
 
Dab the *Sponge Dauber in the Blushing Bride ink and add dimension to the center of the flower and the edges of the leaves.
 
Layer over the Flowering Flourishes stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on the Soft Sky card stock. (Pair these colors with the aide of the Color Coach #130118.)
A feminine and pretty look - these flowers pop with the aide of the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive. 
 
I hope that you enjoy our Fashion Friday and the fun creations my passion for fashion will inspire!
I adore and will miss the *Express Yourself Hostess Exclusive stamp set.  Here the pretty script and sentiment stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on the Tea Lace Doily adds another layer of feminine grace.

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
