Rule the world with coffee hand-stamped card

Ever have one of 'those' days (or lives)?  It starts off after NOT sleeping well the night before, (hubby snoring, dog whimpering, kids up and about...) this with the knowledge that you have a BIG day the next day (or upcoming days)??  Sigh... sure, we all have days like that!!  Lately, this is my life.... so creating a card that mimics my life is a therapeutic way to poke fun at it.  Send a hand-stamped, coffee cup card that encourages world domination!
Create this card with:
Perfect Blend stamp set (#131392)
Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (#130517)
Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)
Baked Brown Sugar card stock (#131296)
Baked Brown Sugar ink (#131174)
Night of Navy ink (#126970)
Etcetera Designer Series Paper (#130129)
Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Stretch Trim (#130022)
SNAIL Simple Neat Affordable In-Line adhesive (#104332)
Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430)
Sticky Strip adhesive (#104294)
 
Inspired by my exhaustion, lol, this cup came quick to mind!  Stamping this Perfect Blend travel mug on the Very Vanilla card stock and then again on a strip of the Etcetera Designer Series Paper.  I do trim the Etcetera paper down so it's the size of the cup cozy and won't waste much of the pretty paper!
 
Trim out the cup cozy and travel cup with your Paper Snips (#103579 - one of the BEST tools in paper crafting).  Layer the cozy over the cup with the SNAIL adhesive for a cute combination.
One of our strongest adhesives is the Sticky Strip adhesive.  It's a sure fire way to get most ANYTHING to stick!!  Adhere this stunning Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Stretch Trim over a line of the Sticky Strip Adhesive.  Even tone-on-tone this ruffled trim really adds a fun feminine element to this card.

Raise the Perfect Blend hand-stamped and layered cup over the Ruffled Trim with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for a subtle layer and depth to this quick card. Stamp this world domination sentiment from the Perfect Blend stamp set on the card with Night of Navy ink.  This ties into the colors of the Etcetera Designer Series Paper.
 
I couldn't resist adding a dash of 'grunge' with these splatters (yes, the one in the Night of Navy ink was a mistake but was definitely a nod to my state of mind, lol).  Gorgeous Grunge is a wonderful stamp set that gives me the ability to add fun elements like this that ties perfectly in to the coffee filled life I'm living, lol.

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
