Blue Roses for My Amazing Friend!!

Roses are Red...
Violets are Blue...
There is NO Sweeter Friend...
Than YOU!
 
 When sending a card, I'm more inclined to lean towards my favorite colors.... one of which is BLUE! 
So, creating this fun 3D rose card for an Amazing Friend,
I couldn't help myself but to go with this
STUNNING paper (in a beautiful blue ~ Midnight Muse!!)from the
Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack (Spring Mini)!

With the beautiful Amazing Family stamp set (Spring Mini)
I created this card for an Amazing Friend
(some friends are like family, aren't they?!?!). 
 
My favorite tool is the Color Coach...
it partners up Bashful Blue with Midnight Muse as a monochromatic best~friend match!
Creating the 3D rose is easier than you'd imagine!  Taking an excess strip of paper, punch the edge with the Scallop Edge Border punch.  Roll the edges out with your finger and then use Mini Glue Dots and roll the rose on it's self - I went a little lose with the rolling.  Finish off with molding the rose's petals out and you now have a BEAUTIFUL 3D Rose!


Adhere the 3D rose with a Glue Gun or Mini Glue Dots...
a stronger adhesive is needed when adhering a 3D item.

This BLUE Card is very Feminine with the aide of the scrolled pattern on the Designer Series Paper, the addition of the rose, accented by the Pearls Basic Jewels (adhesive backed pearls on a strip - with over 150 pearls per sheet - it's quite a deal!) and the vintage sentiment.  Adding the richness of the luxurious pearls is a great way to warm up a card, too!

I have always wanted a BLUE Rose plant....
I can create blue roses by placing fresh cut white roses in blue food colored water but to growwwwww them....
I've ordered 'blue rose' plants and they just don't take... sigh. 
So - Creating a rose, like this, that will not die, it's fun and fills a desire in my heart!
 
 Send some love to a friend...
Tell them how Amazing they are...
Show them how they bless you!
Don't miss out on sending a friend a Valentines this year!
(I'm a little Blue with out my long time friends,
so I sent this off to them... I'm sure they'll feel the love!)
 
Grab YOURS...
the Amazing Family stamp set and the
Print Poetry Designer Series Paper
(both in the Spring Mini)
are here for a Limited Time
grab yours before it's gone!

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
