Navy and White Flowers and Bows hand-stamped card

I love creating a simple but lovely hand-stamped card.  You don't have to do too much to create a pretty card that will delight.  This one-stamp wonder was inspired by my love of fashion - so Happy Fashion Friday!  With fashion and card making the two have many similarities - they both are cotton fibers worked into a flat surface, they incorporate patterns, colors and accessories to combine and deliver something that makes you smile at it's beauty.  Join Me in creating something pretty that will deliver smiles.

I adore how easy this hand-crafted card is!  Using the I Love Lace background stamp and ink it with our Whisper White craft ink pad.  This image is a wonderful and easy result that is classic and stylish.

I combined two dresses of inspiration to create this one hand-stamped card.  Add a 1/4" strip of Whisper White card stock to the front of this hand-stamped card.  Punch this adorable bow using the Bow Builder Punch.  Rubbing the bow pieces with the Bone Folder (102300) to round the piece.  Use the Fast Fuse adhesive to adhere the bow together and then to the card front.
It's like my kids - it's impossible to pick which I love more - lol.  These two dresses are cute on their own but combine the two and create a pretty and classic 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
