Create a stylish and sophisticated hand-crafted card with this sharp look when you pair the Night of Navy, Whisper White and Silver.  Using the Bloom with Kindness stamp set and stamping the 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Night of Navy card stock using the Silver Encore Metallic pads.  What a crisp and sharp looking combination.
 
I LOVE, Love, love the Silver Ribbon!!  It's a sharp looking, metallic ribbon that shines (we can never have too much shine, lol).  Adhere it after stamping the sentiment for two reasons... if the words come out blurry or smooshed, you can flip the card stock over.  Once you have the sentiment how you want, you can then frame it with the Silver Ribbon wrapping around the Night of Navy card stock for a sharp look.
Ohhhh I LOVE our Scored Rosettes... these Lolly's (they have several names) are such a fun circular accent - then take it up a notch (or 10) when you use the Silver Foil Sheets!  BAM!!  Shine, Texture, Reflection, Style!!  Take one 12" x 1-1/2" strip of the Silver Foil Sheets.  Score on the Simply Scored Board ever 1/4" using the Stylus that comes with it. Fold and apply Hot Glue (caution - it's HOT!) to the lip on one end.  Layer the two so they tuck in.  Apply this to the Night of Navy using a generous circle of Hot Glue.  The heat will rise - I like to use our Silicone Sheet to have a barrier and hold the shape down until the Hot Glue sets. 
 
Using the Back to Black Designer Series Paper with the Night of Navy Blendabilities.  Cut out two of the feathers and color in with an ombre look.  I did add the two styles of adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels before hand to color them the same variegated look.  Add them to the top of the Rosette/Lolly with the Hot Glue for a super strong hold. 
 
See this Video Tutorial to see how I use this technique with the Blendabilites Markers.

Pin Stripe??  Add the excess of the Night of Navy used to cut down for the front on the inside of the card!  This not only look good but (as Carol says) it's nice to have less space to write sometimes. I love that this stripe keeps the sophistication going.

When someone adds Sparkle and Shine to YOUR Life... send them a card with the same. Sometimes an act of kindness can be as precious as a jewel!  Here with a cool, stylish and fun card you can deliver sophistication, sparkle and love.  I love the elements of silver, colored rhinestone jewels (resembling my favorite stone - the Sapphire) that circles and frames the elegant sentiment.  So send some shine and love to others who add that to your life, a card like this will shine above all others!

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
