Vintage inspiration hand-stamped Thinking of You card

I LOVE Vintage!!  From elegant clothing, jeweled hand-bags, stunning jewelry... so much so that my wedding ring I actually drew, ended up carving and having a one-of-a-kind piece.  So when this Fashion Friday inspiration came from a Vintage Wedding Ring of 1831 - I couldn't resist!  Here is an elegant, jeweled and metallic card that takes the essence of this ring into a hand-stamped card.  Join Me and see how fun and easy it is to create a pretty hand-stamped card.
Create this Vintage Ring Inspired card with:
Flowering Flourishes stamp set (wood 131998/clear 126367)
Sassy Salutations stamp set (wood 132070/clear 126707)
Smoky Slate card stock (131202)
Rhinestone Jewels (119246)
Versa Mark ink pad (102283)

I LOVE the scrolls and elegance of this ring - easily translated to a pretty, feminine, elegant and sparkling card!  Cut your Smoky Slate card stock and score at 5-1/2" for a long and lean card.
 
Prepare the surface, anytime you emboss, with the Embossing Buddy.  This gives a primed and ready surface to take any Versa Mark stamped image.  Stamp this Flowering Flourishes scrolled flower image on the card front two from two different sides to fill the page.  Stamp the 'Thinking of You' from the Sassy Salutations stamp set in a corner with the Versa Mark ink pad.
 
Liberally cover with the Silver Embossing Powder - the prepping of the surface using the Embossing Buddy will allow for it to stick only to the stamped image.  Shake off excess and heat set using the Heat Tool.  You have a stunning silver on grey image that is sure to WOW.
Accent the flowers and branches on this card with our adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels.  They will add an additional aspect of pretty elegance to your project while being super easy to use!

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
