Spring flowers handmade card making tutorial

This time of year, we Californians, receive our smattering of rain.  It's WONDERFUL (except people forget how to drive in the rare 'weather' we receive, lol).  I love that in Spring, with our rains and gentle weather, we have blossoms in bloom most of the year.  Flowers, especially, bring me such joy.. I love my gardens as soon as it starts to warm up again.  In honor of this I wanted a beautiful, sparkling flower that reminds me of when the rain kisses those blossoms and sends Warm wishes.  As part of the Bundle Up Blog Hop, below, you can brighten up these chilly (or very cold or very hot depending on where you are) day with other Crafters to WOW you.

Create this card by..
~  Stamping the Whisper White card stock (2-3/4" x 3-1/2") with the Lovely Wishes stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. (One Block, All Three Stamps on it, One Application)
~  Color in the flowers with the Stampin' Blends in our Coral Blends combo - I like to start with the lighter of the two and then add the depth along the drawn lines with the darker.  (Here I actually had a boo-boo and colored outside of the lines.. and using the Color Lifter removed it - it's so awesome!)
~  Color in the leaves in the same manner.
~  Add sparkle and shimmer with our Clear Wink of Stella glimmer brush.
~  Adhere to the Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper (don't you just love this pack of colorful sparkle?!?!) in a 3" x 3-3/4" piece.
~  Score at 5-1/2" and Cut the Thick Whisper White card stock at 4-1/4".  Crease with the Bone Folder.
~  Adhere this with Fast Fuse adhesive to the front of the card.
~  I LOVE FREE!  This Triple Shimmer Ribbon Pack is so awesome and FREE with a minimum order.. using the Coral Shimmery Ribbon, tie around the card stock and between the stamped paper and glimmer paper (the Stampin' Dimensionals holding it together make this so easy to do).*
~  Tie a knot twice and trim the edges with an angle.*
Ribbon is sooo awesome but I like to boss it around.  Using Mini Glue Dots along the bottom of the ribbon cut edges, create this fluffly tied look and the Glue Dots will hold it in place!
Easy Peasy and So PRETTY!
Wonderful NEW products sure to add beauty, sparkle and brighten your day!  Create something Spring in the midst of Winter... and show how someone can Warm Your Heart (like this great stamp sentiment).

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
