Happy Fashion Friday!!  Today one of my friends and fellow stampers, Carol, joined me for coffee and a visit.  We had fun gushing and reviewing the New Idea Book and Catalog, then creating these cool cards. Inspired by friendship and my love of fashion, this pretty card mimics the pattern of these stylish vintage shoes (I so wish were in myyyy closet!!).

My friend and fellow stamper, Carol, create this pretty card.  In order to use the Stampin' Blendabilites Marker system you have to use the Memento ink pad.  Here she stamped this Flower Shop pansy with the Memento ink pad on the Whisper White card stock.  Coloring in with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blendabilites for a fun depth and she added the Cherry Cobbler center with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. 
 
Color the flowers in this Back to Black Designer Series Paper with the Blendabilites!  Here Carol added pops of the coordinating Pumpkin Pie for a completed look.  Below I added the Medium to the flower and the dark to the edges of the flowers in my Back to Black piece.  I LOVE the look and Carol pointed out that the black can cover if you go 'outside the lines' (she's one of my 'A' Types and hates going outside the lines - so what a great observation!!).
WOOPS!!  When I punched this Flower Shop pansy with the coordinating Pansy Punch I miss punched.  Then I tried to 'fix' it with my Paper Snips.  It left a slight jagged white edge to the flower.  Simply color the edges with the middle color in the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities for a finished look.
 
With the Blendabilites you can create a layer of depth and movement like no other!!  It's so easy and fun to do, simply stamp your image with the Memento ink pad and color the lightest color first.  Add depth with the medium color (I like to do so in the lined areas of the flower).  Leave dashes of white - for a fun sun splashed look.  Add the darkest color to the outside of the edges to the leaves (this is a general guideline - do it the opposite or where ever your imagination takes you). Carol and I switched markers for the centers of our flowers - here the Pumpkin Pie is in my flower's center!
Stamping this fun sentiment from the Num-Num stamp set is easy with the Memento ink pad (don't get another black pad out - it works too).  It fits perfectly in the Decorative Label Punch and with the small flower in the greeting, adding a dash of the Cherry Cobbler to it creates a finished looking project.
 
Raising the flower and sentiment is easy with our Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.

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
