Polka dots and flowers hand-stamped card

Create a sweet little card that embodies all things girly with sparkle, gold, satin, flowers and polka dots!!  This fun 3" square card is a sweet gift for a friend of mine, Ana as we discussed what I do for a living.  As three of my Spanish speaking friends and I tried to explain what I do in Española we all realized that the best way to do so would be with the Celebrando Creatividad (our Spanish Catalog and Idea Book).  See what I do and what I love as well as the many language options with this fun and quick card.
Create this sweet card with:
Whisper White card stock 12" (124032)
Moonlight (133701)
Flower Shop stamp set (wood 130939/clear 130942)
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in SPANISH
Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blendabilites Markers (130998)
Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blendabilites Markers (131033)
Memento ink pad (132708)
Gold Encore ink pad (132141)
Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon (133671)
Gold Sequin Trim (132939)
Pansy Punch (130698)

RECEIVE YOUR OWN COPY of the New Idea Book and Catalog when You EMAIL ME your name, number and the best time to call, I will send it with a hand-stamped gift!!
The new Stampin' Blendabilites markers are just amazing.  They can create a beautiful 3d look with depth and shading, making me feel like an artist. 
 
Here stamp the Flower Shop pansy in Memento ink and stamping it on the Whisper White card stock.  I colored the lightest shade of the Daffodil Delight in the center of the flower.  Coloring the medium shade in the middle and the darkest towards the outside of the center.
 
Create a rich purple flower with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blendabilites.  Color the lightest of the markers from the outside of the leaves towards the center of the flower.  (Leaving little dashes of white when coloring allows for an added depth.)  Adding the Medium shade to the inner part of the leaves and along the drawn shading.  Adding the darkes along the edges of the inner parts of the leaves and dashes along the drawn in shading... you can create an amazing depth to any project with just a few minutes of your time!!
 
Punch this flower out with the coordinating Pansy Punch and layer over the Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon with a Stampin' Dimensional.  It's what every girl wants - pretty flowers and gold!!
Being multi lingual is such a cool thing!  Having grown up in a Hispanic community where most of my schooling was ESL I was blessed to have learned another language.  Spanish - I may not be fluent but I'm good enough to get by and now my husband is Italian and mi Española has a distinct Italian flair (lol). 
 
Did YOU know that Stampin' Up! is multi-lingual, too??  With stamp sets in Spanish, French and German as well as English... you can have many options on who you can reach. 
Here the 'Happy Birthday' in the Spanish version of our Teeny Tiny Wishes is a beautiful accent to this sweet 3" card.  Stamped in the Gold Encore ink pad on this polka dot patterned piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper allows for a dash of sparkle and elegance.
 
Pulling the Gold Sequin Trim apart - I removed these pretty gold sequins and using the Glue Dots applied them for an added depth and richness to this pretty polka dot card.

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
