Sparkling Flower Mother's Day Card

I may not be an artist like some of my friends, ones who can paint and draw with amazing skill.  I can fake it with this cool technique that we used at our recent Ragamuffin Coffee Roasters card making class.  (I meant to post this sooner but we had my youngest's and husband's birthday last week - eek!)  See this easy Video Tutorial and then let me know what YOU create with this technique.

I love the look of this sparkling flower that looks hand drawn and vintage - while using this great stamp set.
~  Stamp the Birthday Blossoms flower on Whisper White card stock with the So Saffron ink pad.  
~  Punch out with the Pansy Punch (see the tip on this video tutorial).
~  Grab your Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers.

Take it up a notch with our  TOOL TIP:  
~  Draw in some small lines around the center of the flower, up the stamped lines and YES it will look like a bit much - but WAIT!
~  Technique: THIS is the coolest trick.  Water color over this drawn in lines look with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.  This will soften and blur the lines, creating a vintage and soft look with SPARKLE!
~  Stamp on the Whisper White card stock the large collection of flowers and the So Saffron ink pad.
~  Stamp the leaf with the Wild Wasabi ink pad in the corner.
~  Create a custom greeting - this MOM was created using the Brushwork Alphabet - I LOVE that!!
~  Stamp your sayings for a custom Mother's Day card or any type of card you are seeking.

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
