Pirate's Baseball Birthday Wishes

I'm a TOTAL Sports mom - lol...
My Best Friend is the same way...
Soooo, when her son, James,
celebrates HISssss 11th Birthday....
I couldn't resist being a 'Great Sport' and
sending this Pirate's Baseball Card for the boy!
(Let's Play Ball!!)
The Pirate's Team Colors are Black and Yellow so using our
Daffodil Delight and Black card stocks with the
Whisper White as an accent color this card comes to life!
 
Heat Embossing the images from the Great Sport stamp set (Idea Book & Catalog) is a sure fire way to make a crisp and strong image.  Here with Itty Bitty Banners greetings stamp set (Idea Book & Catalog) embossed with White powder on the Black card stock and layering with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive...
it jumps out at you!
My friend, lol, the Big Shot played a major part in this card....
With the White Card stock embossed with the Honey Comb Embossing folder & Big Shot (Spring Mini) it reminds me of the chain link fences at the games.
 
The Bitty Banners Framelits & Labels Collection Framelits (Idea Book & Catalog) cut out while adding perfect layers to the card.  I was worried it'd look feminine and
James is ALL BOY....
but the sharp colors, embossing, theme
prevents this from being girly!
Highlighting the Stitches on the baseball with a red was easy... the Color Coach (Idea Book & Catalog) pairs the Daffodil Delight with the Cherry Cobbler.  It is subtle but perfect as a highlight... I LOVE our Stampin' Write Markers!
Goooooo Pirates!  (Gooo James!)
(Unless we are playing this team for my son's games - lol)
James celebrates his 11th Birthday in Texas while we send our LOVE from California!
 
What Teams do YOU Cheer On?!?!
Leave me a comment,
I may create a card in your team's colors!

It is sure to be your best friend in crafting, if you do!
Try it out at one of my classes,
see HOW we can get YOU a Big Shot for 1/2 OFF!*
(* Hostess Benefits -

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
