Love You floral hand-stamped card

I love using an item in a new way and finding a way to save scraps and transform them into something new.  This hand-crafted card does all of that and comes together to show some pretty love.  Here taking the Spring Flowers embossing folder and creating a colored debossed image.  Using the scraps from this card to create a new stamped and die-cut image.  No waste and amazing results!  Join Me in creating some hand-stamped love that will bless others; a hand-crafted card is a small measure of love that blesses in a big way.

I love the Hello You thinlits dies!!  They are designed to make a ton of sentiments when paired with the Crazy About You stamp set (see the bundle to save 15% on the two!).  When we created this Love card I had the ladies in my class die-cut the 'you' from a strip of 2-1/2" Very Vanilla card stock.  They cut in-between each 'you' and popped the 'trash' into a basket I had on our Big Shot table.  I couldn't let this 'you' go to waste!  Here, stamping the 'Love' on the die-cut 'you' it won't go to waste and becomes a cool accent to this debossed card!

See the Video below on creating a colorful embossed image - this is the same premise but using the other side (the raised side).  Brayer the Rich Razzleberry ink on the raised flowers of the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder (from the Occasions Mini).  

The secret to a true colored debossed image - use the Premium Crease Pad as the 'bottom' plate!  This is a little thicker to roll through the Big Shot but the Premium Crease Pad has more cushion and will give the ink more contact as it is embossed/debossed.  (see the difference in the top Right image above - one with the most color uses the Premium Crease Pad, the other just standard cutting pads).

See this Video Tutorial (one of my older videos) on creating this cool Colored Embossing/Debossing technique:

Take this discarded die cut sentiment and stamp the 'Love' on it.  Using Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to raise it above the debossed flower sheet.  Use the Glue Dots to adhere the cut outs from the 'y' and 'o'.  How CUTE is that - so easy, too!  I love the lack of waste and effort in this.

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
