Hardwood Cross Hand-Stamped Card

Today is Good Friday.  We celebrate the sacrifice that Jesus made for us on the cross.  In honor of this day and momentous event, I created this easy Hardwood Cross hand-stamped card.  Celebrating events in life, like this, is an honor and a blessing.  Join me in creating this card and celebrating life!
Create this card with:
Trust God stamp set (#132094w/126702c)
Hardwood background stamp (#133032w/133035c)
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Smoky Slate card stock (#131202)
Smoky Slate ink (#131179)
Soft Sky ink (#131181)
Daffodil Delight ink (#126944)
1/8" Mini Brads (#122941)
Stampin' Sponges (#101610)
Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430)
If you enjoy this card and want to have some fun crafting with me, CLICK HERE and RSVP ASAP for my Upcoming Classes!!  Most classes are FREE with a qualified purchase!!
Stamping this Hardwood background stamp with Smoky Slate ink on Smoky Slate card stock gives a vintage feel.  Cut two strips out of this stamped image and lay them out.
 
Adding the Mini Brads to this signifies the sacrifice while honoring His resurrection.
 
Pairing this Smoky Slate with the Daffodil Delight and the Soft Sky is with the help of my Color Coach (YAY - one of my favorite tools #130118).  Using the Daffodil Delight ink and Stampin' Sponge I rubbed a highlight to this Whisper White card stock.  Adding the Soft Sky ink the same way to the outside of the Daffodil Delight for a sunrise feel.
The Trust God stamp set is a must!  I use this set for so much!!  Here the Trust God sentiment is ideal, especially for me, when I struggle in times of trial. 
 
Stamping this with Smoky Slate for a color coordinated look.

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
