Natural Elegance hand-stamped card

Inspired by fashion and love (or my love of fashion - lol) this card came to life after seeing the beautiful dress below and discussing anniversaries with a friend.  Hand-stamped cards can say so much - even with out a greeting!

Create beautiful hand-stamped butterflies, flowers and 3D gilded roses by stamping the pretty pansy in the Gold Metallic Encore Pads on the Very Vanilla card stock.  The coordinating punches for the Flower Shop bundle (and who doesn't LOVE Saving on a Bundle!!) and the lovely Papillion Potpourri and coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch.
Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes (does thissss come in my shape/size?!?!).  This beautiful dress, pinned on Pinterest, is a fun way to feel my card-mojo come to life!
Layers, sheer and added sparkle.. this card picks up the subtle beauty of the dress!  Here with the Watercolor Wonder Wonder Designer Washi Tape under the beautiful Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  Subtle addition and layer easily achieved with this pretty gold patterned washi tape.
Add some more gold (can one ever have ENOUGH Gold??) with the Sponge Dauber in the Gold Encore pad and rubbing the edges of this Very Vanilla card.  Gilded edges are a great way to wrap up this card.
Gilding the edges of this Spiral Flower Originals Die that creates these beautiful roses! Using my Hot Glue Gun to adhere the 3D rose together on the base it comes cut with.  I curled the edges with my Simply Scored Stylus for a softer look. 
 I am blessed that you came by today.  I try to post daily, so come and visit often!  Bring your friends and family for this fun crafting ride!  Remember that you can SHOP 24/7/365 for all your paper-crafting and rubber stamping needs! (See the Updated Clearance Rack and save up to 80%!)
Gold doesn't go out of style... celebrate love and life at a wedding, anniversary or just because!  This card doesn't have a hand-stamped greeting but still says love and 'anniversary' depending on how you present it.  Send a hand-stamped card this year and send some love to celebrate life!

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
