BFF Valentine

My bestie has moved across state lines to Texas (booooo) but we talk often, text and keep tabs on our kids growth and hubby's work and hobbies. Thank goodness Texting and Cell Phone exists!

This card was inspired for her love of Pinks and all-girlie look. With Amazing Family stamp set from the Spring Mini. Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack is FULL of beautiful of stunning papers, this being one! 



Raspberry Ripple is one color on this paper and its matched (with the Color Coach) with Pretty In Pink. So with Pretty In Pink as the card stock base. Stamping the sentiment in Raspberry Ripple then the stunning flourish in Pretty In Pink under the Friend.

Cutting in on one corner with our Paper Snips that is so sharp and cuts precision with the lovey flourishes on this frame.

Adhering the cut DSP to the card stock base. The one cut corner has a little more adhesive to keep it together. Using Dazzling Details one the flourish of the frame is a fun way to deepen the color and add sparkle and fun!







 

The Subtle Bling painted on the edges of the frame with the Dazzling Details Glitter Glue is fun and darkens the color.. it lifts the edges a little too!
 
Coloring our adhesive backed Rhinestones in a light pink with permanent marker. Adding a strip to the area in the stamped sentiment with little dots and then four more around the frame.



The Raised Frame is a nice way to add depth and
charector while highlighting the greeting!

 
How would you celebrate your friends and family? Some friends are like family, my BFF is. What would you do with this stunning stamp set?

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
