Awesome Arrows hand-stamped card

I love the show Two Broke Girls.... it's a guilty pleasure.  They often rip on the trendy kids who are all 'hipster-ed' out.  I remember wearing these clothes as a 'Grunge' kid in high school... my friends Harmony, Senyo, Matt, Ari and others all wore our old flannels, knee torn jeans, Buddy Holly glasses and cheap shoes... lol.  So I created this cute and trendy card in a nod to my youth (geesh, when did I get so 'old'?!?!) and those cute kids who are 'hipsters' thinking they are so new... lol...

Taking the Costal Cabana card stock through the Arrows Embossing Folder and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Layer with SNAIL adhesive on the front of the Baked Brown Sugar card.
 
Using the Chevron Border Punch* and punch along the edge... following the base to continue the pattern for a clean image. 

Take the spare punched out pieces and remove the Baked Brown Sugar pieces to become the 'frame' arrows around the Essentials Wood Elements*.  I love using scraps... less waste!!
Use the groovy and fun Make Note This and That Rotary Stamp in the Costal Cabana ink and stamp the frames on the base of this banner from the Essential Wood Elements* collection. 

Stamping the cute }}Awesome{{ sentiment from the Make Note Rotary Stamp in the Baked Brown Sugar ink and stamp above.  The wood holds a great image.. a softening but it goes with stamping on wood, lol.  Using the Glue Dots to adhere the framed arrows and the stamped Essential Wooden Elements* as it's a strong adhesive to hold against this textured background.
Tuck a 2" high piece of the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper* with a coordinated cool chevron pattern to the inside.  This serves to peak thru the punched chevrons and also gives a smaller area to write... perfect for when you have less to say.
It's so cool that you are here today!  I try to post daily projects and tutorials.  Bring your friends and family along for the fun... share me and visit often, please!

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
