Part of the creative process is my trying things out. The fun thing with crafting is that the look of a project can change so easily with the colors you use.  On my first layout this card is still so pretty on the Melon Mambo card stock base.  I often ask the advise of my crafting friends and husband.  Hubby was all about the pink base. 

Adding Sparkle.. a subtle but oh so pretty sparkle is easy to add.  Use the Wink of Stella in clear (or gold depending on the project).  After water-coloring this image in with the Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo inks and Aqua Painter - I topped it off with slight outlines of the Clear Wink of Stella for  a WOW element.
I was leaning towards the Whisper White Thick card stock base when Ashley was in a text conversation with me at the same time as my hubby.  I love that she has a great eye for color and style.  Like me, she believed both colors worked, the white just made the flower pop more.  (Thanks Ashley!!)  I offered both color choices at the card making class and all went with the white card.
 Inspired by a gift of the most beautiful flower I've ever seen, this card was a nod and gift for a friend who's beautiful inside and out!

This is the Climbing Cactus!  A stunning, vibrantly colorful flower from a plant that looks mundane.  I couldn't capture the full, breathtaking, awe-inspiring look to this card but I enjoyed a nod to it.  This flower is massive in color and size!

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
