Inspired by this cool pastel colored chevron outfit with delightful gold accents I couldn't resist creating a fashionable card.
Using the Subtles Stampin' Write Markers in Blushing Bride, Wild Wisteria and Calypso Coral to paint the raised textured side of the Chevron Embossing Folder.
Huff (breathe on/over to refresh the marker ink) on the Embossing Folder and place your Whisper White card stock on the inked side.  Run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to deliver a colorful and textured image.
Add a fun gold accent (tying in the gold sandals and jewelry).  Pull the Gold Sequins off of the Gold Sequin Trim for this loose gold accent.  Adhere to the card with the Glue Dots.
With Sparkle and Gold, this fashionable card declares to 'Celebrate!'.  Painting the sentiment from the 'And Many More' stamp set in Wisteria Wonder, stamp it on the Blushing Bride card stock.  Using the Modern Label Punch to punch out this cute shape.  Accent with Gold Sequins and adhere it to the card using the Stampin' Dimensionals.
Give two people the same supplies and it's fun to see how different they can be! Layer this Chevron piece over the Wisteria Wonder card stock base for a fun nod to the adorable purse - lol. 
Here my helper Orfa did the same technique but with the Large Oval Punch she stamped this greeting and framed it in the Gold Sequin Trim for a pretty frame.
With a few cool techniques you can create a fun and fashionable 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
