Fashion Friday Coral Dress Inspiration

I LOVE, Love, looooove Fashion!  I couldn't resist a post on this Fashion Friday with a cool card inspired by a lovely dress (I found the image on Pinterest).  All things vintage, elegant and scroll-y (is that a word?) and in fashion??  Yes - Please!!  So this fun and easy hand-stamped card came to life and I couldn't resist sharing it with you.
Create this fashion inspired card with:
Lovely Romance stamp set (wood 130264/clear 130267)
Sahara Sand card stock (121043)
Very Vanilla card stock (101650)
Calypso Coral ink pad (126983)
Chalk Talk Framelits (129983)
Big Shot Magnetic Platform (130658)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (113439)
Pearl Jewels (119247)
Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive (104430)

I love this pretty, feminine and elegant dress.  Sadly, I can't wear this coral color (I'm drawn to it but it doesn't do me any favors, sigh).  Taking this love of the color and design and turning it into something I can style... a hand-stamped card is easy and fun!
 
Start with the Sahara Sand card stock (scored at 5-1/2" and cut at 4-1/4").  Using this scrolled medallion from the Lovely Romance stamp set and making a background is easy (especialy with the clear mounted stamps and Stamp-A-Ma-jig #101049).  Accent the medallions with our adhesive backed Pearl Jewels (there are three sizes and 150 pearls on each sheet - here I used the medium pearls on the medallions).
Much like the fabulous heels that coordinate with this dress, this sentiment is Amazing!  Show that you care and how someone is Amazing with this hand-stamped and die-cut card.  (I just LOVE Fashion Friday and what it inspires!!)
 
Stamp the image with Calypso Coral ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Use the Chalk Talk framelits on the Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to easily frame and cut out this sentiment.  Pearls would be an awesome accent to this dress and the hand-stamped card inspired by the dress!  Add the large adhesive-backed Pearl Jewels to this sentiment.  Raise it above the card 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
