I love how a dramatic dress can translate to a dramatic hand-stamped card with a fashionable edge!  Using the I Love Lace background stamp and the Jet Black Stazon ink pad to create a stunning card base. 
 
Create these stunning feathers using the Bundle!  Simply prepare the Basic Black card stock using the Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the leaves with the Versa Mark ink pad and cover with the Silver Embossing Powder.  Heat set and see this Magic (my kids call it magic and love heat embossing - my 8 year old loves to show how fun it is to do to her friends). 
 
Die-Cut these images out easily!!  Simply use the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to frame and die-cut these embossed images.  Do it again using the Silver Glimmer Paper and add sparkle silver metallic accents to the front of this lacy card.
 
Paired together thanks to my Color Coach - the Rich Razzleberry, Basic Grey and Basic Black really look amazing together!  I love when a card (or an outfit) comes together to look amazing!  Fashion Friday is a fun way to post my passion for fashion and crafting!

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
