Fabulously Stylish hand-stamped card

I'm in love with a few things in life... Coffee, Card Making and Crafting, Fashion.... oh, and of course, my family - lol.  So when I see an outfit that I love I see how easily it can translate to a hand-stamped card or crafted project.  This cute and stylish card does just that.  Created as a simple but elegant wish, this fabulous hand-stamped card is sure to delight.  Like fashion, see how it is fun to take it up a notch with the perfect accessory, too!
Create and deliver some style in this hand-stamped card with:
Million & One stamp set (wood 126375/clear 126377)
Smoky slate card stock (131202)
Very Vanilla card stock (101650)
Crisp Cantaloupe ink pad (131176)
Calypso Coral Blendabilites (130996)
Pearl Basic Jewels (119247)
Gold 1/8 metallic Ribbon (134583)
Simply Scored Diagonal Plate (125586)
Deco Label Framelits (130102)

Seeing this stylish outfit had me over the moon!  I love the look and style of it.  Creating a hand-stamped card that mimics the lines and simplicity of this outfit was a must!
Cutting the Smoky Slate card stock into a long card I set it aside.  Cutting a piece of the Smoky Slate to score will create layers and elegance - so I trimmed a second piece down to 4"x 5-1/4" so that I can layer it with ease. 
Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate I created these stylish lines that mimic the V-neck of the pretty dress.  It will create a frame for the sentiment.
The Million & One stamp set is so elegant and lovely.  The sentiment is long and I wanted some flair to the cut of the words.  Using the Deco Labels Framelits, Big Shot Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Die-Cutting machine you can die-cut a great shape to frame up the sentiment or image.  It was too wide for my style.  Cutting the top and bottom flair pieces will give me a sleek and long die-cut image to frame my hand-stamped greeting.
Adding a pop of metallic accents is so fabulous!  I love our metallic 1/8" ribbons!!  Here the Gold 1/8" Ribbon wraps around the scored piece of card stock.  Adhered to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive there is subtle but elegant dimension to this card.
I love the framed look of these score lines.  The Simply Score Scoring Tool is super easy to use - I used it daily in scoring my card stock before cutting to doing Lollies/Rosettes.
Like any good outfit, accessories can really jazz up the look.  Crafting is so much like fashion and the accessories can really wow!  Using the Calypso Coral Blendabilites Markers (the dark shade) color the adhesive backed larger Pearl Jewels.  These markers are alcohol based and will transform a stunning pearl into a lovely coral jewel!

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
