My hand crafted card leans more warm but I love how EASY and Dynamic this handmade card came out.  

Creating an Ombre look is easier than you'd think!  

Doing so though can take a few tricks - especially on a non-porous surface like our new Fine Shimmer Specialty Paper!  
~  Start with the Lightest Color - here that is the Blushing Bride ink.  
~  Daub the Blending Brush into the corner of the ink pad and, with a base behind the project - here I used extra chipboard - and blend  in for a smoother transition than starting directly on the Fine Shimmer in Gold (3-3/4"x5").
~  HOW TO SET This Color... so the Shimmer is a non-porous surface and the color can easily transfer off.  Soooo.. SET THE COLOR!  Using our Heat Tool to dry the surface once you are finished applying all three colors.  Careful not to scorch the paper but it should bow slightly during setting (this is the glue curing).
~  Frame out this with Blackberry Bliss 4"x5-1/4" and the Blushing Bride card (score at 5-1/2", cutting at 4-1/4", using the Bone Folder to make a firm impression).
~  Stamping a 1" strip with Stazon Jet Black Ink (a solvent ink that will stand on the surface of the Gold Fine Shimmer) with the Something Fancy stamp set (I really adore the Everyday Magic greeting for this hand stamped card.
~  Stampin' Dimensionals in between each layer.
~  Accent with the Elegant Faceted Gems (the surface can be challenging to the embellishments with it's texture so I added a small dot of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to aide in this) with my Take Your Pick Tool.
I am so grateful for the everyday magic of you!
I do hope you enjoyed this fun Fashion Friday inspired card making tutorial.

This girllll y'all!!
My sweet (and spicy!) Genevieve is turning 17 next week (eek!).  She taught me the joy and adventures of raising a daughter (my mini me) who loves life and adventure.  She also has kick started my journey with Stampin' Up! and... 17 years later, we are still going strong!
In today's Throwback Thursday #TBT we are grabbing that very first catalog I ever had and my girl to create this hand crafted card for you!
First of all....
This catalog is DATED!  From the style to the colors and even the haircuts/color of those within... sooo much has changed in the card making and paper crafting world!  

Andddd my daughter was horrified at it all!
Creating with so much red and brown... the cards and projects in this catalog were all dark or super bright!
~  Scoring the Real Red card stock at 5-1/2", cutting at 4-1/4" with our Paper Trimmer.
~  Stamping the Very Vanilla card stock at 2"x4", in Early Espresso ink.  Accent with the Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Marker.  Distress with the Paper Snips along the edges (sooo old school!).
~ Frame in the Mossy Meadow at 2-1/4"x4-1/4" and Crumb Cake at 2-1/2"x4-3/4 with Stampin' Seal + adhesive.
~  Punch the Real Red card stock with the Ovals Punch and fold in the middle, using the Bone folder to make a firm impression.  Adhere with Stampin' Seal +.
~  Accent with the Solid Faceted Gems in the dark green, adhering the Early Espresso faux suede ribbon to the back.
~ Stamp the Stacked Stone in Real Red on the coordinating card stock and Early Espresso on the same.
~  Tear the Early Espresso card stock (4-1/4"x5-1/2") and using the Snips to add to the distressing.
~  Stamping the greeting in Real Red on Very Vanilla, frame with Real Red card stock 1/5"x3" distressed with the Paper Snips (sooo many fibers!!).  
I adore this Distinktive stamping that is exclusive to Stampin' Up! but I have to admit that I have NOT created a handmade card that has been in these colors in ages!!
My girl picked out the sample card from our Idea book and Catalog and I think we did a fine job of it.  
What do you think??  Comment and let me know!
Her reaction to this card and the old school techniques had me in stitches!  I love that we can continue our journey as we celebrated my 17th Anniversary with Stampin' Up!

I also LOVE celebrating the amazing friends in my life and #GettingCraftyFamily much like these ladies. One of the ways I appreciate being honored is with something pretty…

From the handmade to the must haves… like these #CoachPurses Something fabulous for the hard heart ♥️ work they do in our team. This is something I personally gift to the leaders on my team, not offered by StampinUp.

I know that I joined 17! Years ago and quickly found my passion turning into a #CraftingBusiness that helps support my family, provide trips and vacations, gives me new friends across the world and we all are a cut above with our heart for others. As a leader in #StampinUp and the InkyFingers group… I love finding ways to bless those who strive for more!

~ Stamp one of two ways!  Either turn the paper on top of the upside down inked image and apply pressure or turn it over.
~  Using our Paper Snips to fussy cut out the stamped image.

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

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
