What is Black & White and Full of Color?!?!

Inspired by a new Favorite Dress...
I created this Black Embossed Vanilla Card stock that
Uses a Baby Wipe Technique to create the
Bold, Bright and Vibrant Flowers from the
Secret Garden bundle of Stamp Set and
Framelits Dies in the Spring Mini!

Using Shimmer Card Stock for the flowers, the
Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry reinkers to create this swirled look. 
The Shimmer Paper is AMAZING, a subtle but huge WOW when you catch the elegant sparkle.
The Rich Razzleberry is very dark so I started off w/ a little of the Melon Mambo first and then added layers of the Razzleberry for this multi dimensional flower!
HERE is my new lil favorite dress! 
Clearance Rack special even!! (lol)
 I LOVE Animal Print and the Vibrant flowers -
I knew when I laid my eyes on it that even if I never wore it,
I'd soooooooooo make a card like it!

The Shimmer Paper is soooo Shiny!!
(not in a flashy way but a subtle and elegant way)
Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive lifts the flowers off the card and allows for them to overlap one another.

Sporting my Boots again
(after 2-1/2 months recovery to my foot w/ 6 broken bones!)
I Whipped Out my Patent Leather black beauties with this dress and KNEW I'd have to Heat Emboss this card in more than one way!!
The LNS Challenge threw down the 'Let's Heat Things Up!' and I think that I did with this FUN but Sexy Card! 
When presented with a Challenge,
I often Run Head FIRST at it...
what do you think of my efforts??
The 'Loving Thoughts' stamp set works great on the
Melon Mambo Card stock and
Heat Embossed with this Sharp Black look!
The Heat Embossed Patent Leather Shine of the Black embossing powder on the Very Vanilla Card Stock card and the En Francais background stamp is a cool twist on the card.

OK Love or Hate it - this dress makes a GREAT Card! 
I had a blast with the fun look if it and the techniques! 
YOUR Turn to Heat It UP!
Grab Your Embossing Buddy, Gun and Powder and
Have a Blast with the Shimmer Card stock the subtle
warm shimmer is well worth it!

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
