Water Coloring Sparkle & Shimmer & Vellum How-To Stampin’ Up! Fragrant Flowers Fashion Friday

 If you know me, you KNOW I LOVE Fashion!  Give me sparkle, velvet, polka dots... squeeee!  Now.. I also adore crafting.  Combining the two was something I loved doing (before the move) and am glad to be back with.  Did you KNOW that there is a DIRECT Correlation to Crafting from Fashion?  The patterns, colors, style to the fact that both are fibers, long cotton fibers used in quality clothes and the same for Stampin' UP!'s high quality papers, ribbons and yes accessories.  Join me with this Inspiration by #FashionFriday using the NEW and oh so lush Favored Flowers FREE* Sale A Bration paper and the Fragrant Flowers Bundle!  See how I modified the size of this card to eliminate waste!

The beauty of Water Coloring is raised a few levels with these techniques.  
~  Using the Shimmery White card stock as the base, stamp the flowers in Jet Black Stazon Ink.
~ Using the Wink of Stella glimmer brush in the Petal Pink, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow watercolor the image (see the video for tips and tricks with this) for EXTRA Shimmer and Sparkle.
~  Stamping the greeting with the Petal Pink and Stazon on the Shimmery White.
TOOL TIP:  With this STUNNING VELLUM Basics I wanted it to cover the FULL Card Front (over the Basic Black and Favored Flowers as well as the Petal Pink card stock base).  So I cut the Card Base DOWN to 4"x11", scored at 5-1/2"
~  Create this with Basic Black card stock at 3-3/4"x5-1/4" and Favored Flowers at 3-1/2"x5" with the Vellum Basics polka dot at 4"x5-1/2".
TOOL TIP:  With Vellum, you need to HIDE the adhesive.  See the Video Tutorial on HOW to do so.
Having planted HUNDREDS of Bulbs this year... I am enjoying Winter but loving the idea of Spring and the many blooms due.  This dress and image captured my idea of what a beautiful Spring Sunday could look like.  I just knew it was inspiring me to PLAY  and Create!!

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
