Black and White Fashion Inspired hand-stamped card making tutorial

Ruffles, Pearls, Organza, Satin, Shine.. oh it must be Fashion Friday!!  See how fun it is to find inspiration for your crafting projects in my side addiction to fashion.  With paper crafting and fashion having so much in common, it's no wonder that I adore the two.  This quick hand-crafted card is easy to do with a sweet element of satin ruffles.  See how in this quick paper-crafting tutorial.
Create this Fashionable hand-stamped card with:
Sassy Salutations stamp set (wood 132070/clear 126707)
Whisper White card stock (100730)
Jet Black Stazon ink pad (101406)
Back to Black Designer Series Paper (133700)
Sticky Strip adhesive (104294)
5/8" Organza Ribbon (114319)
Pearl Jewels (119247)

Creating this clean and elegant hand-stamped card is a fun break from my busy, messy day - lol.  Here I loved the accent of the ruffles on the front of this Fashion Friday inspired runway picture.  Start with a  Whisper White card stock base.  Add the Back to Black Designer Series Paper 1/2 way up.  (Our Designer Series Papers are DOUBLE SIDED - so you get so much more for your dollar with these top quality, acid and lignin free, pretty patterned paper!)
 
To create these ruffles, apply a line of the Stick Strip adhesive to the top of the Back to Black Designer Series Paper.  Start applying the Organza and Satin White Ribbon.  I made ruffles with the ribbon by folding it as I applied it to the Sticky Strip.  Easy Peasy and WOW the results!!
Stamp the 'Thank You' from the Sassy Salutations rubber stamp set using the Jet Black Stazon ink pad for a sharp coordinated look.  Frame the stamped image with the adhesive-backed Pearl Jewels.  This is like the accessories the model is wearing - a classic and luminous addition to this pretty hand-stamped card.

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
