San Francisco Giants

The sweet, sweet sound of the bat cracking the ball into the field... but sadly, our season has come to an end!  My son has been blessed with a fun team and season and some amazing coaches!!
 
Howwwww do you Thank someone, who has dedicated their time and energies, their attention and expertise for a whole season?!?!
You give them a Thank You card... and this is what we gave our amazing coaches!!
(What do you think?!? 
Leave me a comment and let me know....)
I created this but didn't have the time to photograph it as I was running behind to a game that started a little early - ugh......
 
No better backdrop, though, than our last game of the season!!
 
Our Tangerine Tango (#111349) is a great base for this SF Giants card!  Framing it with our Basic Black card stock (#121045) for a sharp contrast that matches the Giant's colors!
The Typeset Alphabets Bigz die (#127553) and Big Shot (#113439) allows for me to cut the S and F from another piece of Tangerine Tango card stock.  Looping/Linking them together was easy and adhering them to the Black with SNAIL adhesive (#104332) for a sharp look.
Create this sweet baseball with our Whisper White card stock (#100730) and our 2-1/2" Circle Punch(#120906).  Our Big Shot and the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (#129383) create this fun textured 'stitching'. 
Highlight the raised 'x' with our Real Red Stampin' Write Marker (#100052) and it mimics the fun look of our baseballs!!  POP It Up with our Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive (#104430). 
Our kids may not be the first in the league, but they did great!  They were 'baseball ready' each time, had fun, played hard, and had good sportsmanship.  Being lead by 5 great dads, all supporting the kids and our families.  Thanks 'coaches' for a great season!  I hope this card shows you our admiration!!
Hereeeee is my boy... my sweet angel as he revs up for a sharp swing to that fast ball.  (Isn't he adorable?!?!!  I just love my big baby boy... )
This card knocks it out of the park, doesn't it?!?!
It's sure to be a Home Run with these great dads who lead us to a great season!
 
The great thing about this card is that it's easy to change up for many teams and yet still cheers on a hero or many heroes!!

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
