Peacock Punch Art Hand Stamped Card

To tell you that I LOVE Peacocks is such an understatement!!  I have always been drawn to their regal colors, large plumes and regal gate.  So creating a fun Punch Art that ties to this majestic bird is a great way to tie into my Upcoming Punch Art Card Making Class (THIS Friday, March 7th from 6:30-9:30pm, go ahead RSVP ASAP!!).  Join me in creating a Punch Art Peacock, hand-stamped card and Join My Classes!
 
Create a vintage, hand-stamped peacock punch art card with:
Ex Libris background stamp (#129496)
Blessing From Heaven stamp set (#123052)
Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper (#130144)
Pistachio Pudding card stock (#131294)
Pistachio Pudding ink pad (#131177)
Soft Suede ink pad (#126978)
Victoria Crochet Trim (#118481)
Rhinestone Jewels (#119246)
Bird Builder punch (#117191)
Silicone Craft Sheet (#127853)
Glue Dots (#103683)
 
Did YOU KNOW??  Peacock feathers, if plucked, will lose their colors!  A peacock feather has to be shed, naturally, from a male (female peacocks are not nearly as colorful - sigh).  So, don't go plucking any peacocks (they are a loud bird, can be aggressive and 'mean' and are know for overriding neighborhoods, like that of our Uncle and Aunt).  Still, a regal and beautiful bird, as long as you don't have them invading your neighborhood - lol.
The amazing thing about Punch Art is what you can create!  I love that our Designer Series Paper, like this stunning Venetian Romance, is DOUBLE SIDED!!!!  So you can create one image and chose what side you like the best.  Our Designer Series Paper collections are paired perfectly so that you can mix patterns (oh so trendy, right now) and still look coordinated!!  Thisssss is the back of the Punch Art Peacock and pretty while funky.
Inspired by my love of peacocks and this stunning necklace, this Punch Art Peacock came to life.  Add a dash of bling with the adhesive backed, stunning, Rhinestone Jewels in the center of the punched plumes. 
 
Create the beautiful bird with the aide of our super sticky Glue Dots.  When you use adhesive that may stick to your graph paper/work station, use the Silicone Craft Sheet!!  This sheet will prevent any accidental sticky situations.
Regal, Vintage, Elegant.. Punch Art can be cute but you can create an elegant Peacock like this. 
 
 
Celebrate all that is vintage, elegant and stand out with these hand-stamped, punch-art cards!  This hand-stamped, vintage, punch-art card embraces elegance and even a little of a stained glass look!  Sending such an elegant bird and card is a sure fire way to WOW.  Celebrate the beauty of life and this bird, create a hand-stamped, punch-art card - with me!  What do YOU think?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

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
