Fashionable Lines hand-stamped card

I LOVE Fashion... the fashion of maxi dresses are heaven!  They are loose and comfortable while being fashionable!  So when I decided on the Fashion Friday post I went to this stunning, clean lined maxi dress for a stylish hand-crafted card inspiration.  A clean and elegant outfit can lend to creating a hand-stamped card that is easy, clean and elegant - with a twist (or punch)!
Create this fashionable hand-crafted card with:
And Many More stamp set (wood  134273/clear 134276)
Very Vanilla card stock (101650)
Night of Navy card stock (100867)
Night of Navy ink pad (126970)
Pearl jewels (119247)
Venetian Crochet Lace Trim (134581)
Decorative Label Punch (120907)
1" Square Punch (124094)
Stampin' Dimensionals (104330)
Mulitpurpose Liquid Adhesive (110755)

OK so I'm on the hunt for this dress!  It would cover so many 'flaws'!!  Until I locate it, it inspired this cool and easy hand-crafted card that with a simple rubber stamped greeting will deliver some love!
The long lines in the dress inspired this longer lined card.  Cut the 8-1/2"x11" card stock at 4-1/4" and score at 5-1/2". 
 
Adding a fun accent, create a unique shape with a simple use of the 1" Square Punch!  Simply punch the corners on two opposing sides for a unique looking card.  I love the 'twist' (or Punch) on this card and it's look - something so simple can have your card stand out from the bunch!
 
Wrap up the card with this stunning Venetian Crochet Lace Trim!!  Simply wrap it for a diagonal line placement and adhere using the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  The lines in the punched corners to the lines of the Venetian Crochet Lace Trim and the long cut and score to the hand-stamped card deliver a sweet nod to the Fashion Friday Inspiration!
I LOVE the And Many More stamp set!!  With 24 sayings that cover most any situation you may need - it's a MUST for any collection!  Simply stamping the 'just because' with Night of Navy ink on the Very Vanilla card stock gives me a card to use for most any occasions!  Accent the card with the adhesive backed Pearl Jewels and you will shine!  I LOVE a pearl accent when wearing clothes - sporting pearl jewelry is a nod to days gone by while adding class and elegance to any outfit (or hand-crafted card, lol).

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
