Minecraft punch-art hand-stamped card

Minecraft?  Ummm... so my son says he wants a Minecraft hand-stamped card from me (25 minutes before we have to leave).  Sure, I'm super mom.. my life isn't my own (sigh), still, I had to stop, grab my iPhone and look up what a Minecraft was!! 
 
So here is a Punch-Art card of Steve from Minecraft. An odd pixelated picture character that is the star of this game Minecraft (lol).  This makes me feel old... it resembles the games we played on Atari... who knew that with the amazing graphics available to us today, that this would be the 'it' game for kids in my son's age range.
 
Create this cool punch-art card with:
Crumb Cake card stock (#120953)
Chocolate Chip card stock (#102128)
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Marina Mist card stock (#119682)
1" square punch (#124094)
Paper Snips (#103579)
Stampin' Sponge (#101610)
SNAIL Simple, Neat, Affordable In-Line adhesive (#104332)
 
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!! 
Yupp.. this is Steve and Minecraft.  Laugh with me... I'm not thatttt old, am I??  Truthfully, my kids are on the computer and play only educational games or work on school projects.. so this was new to me (lol).
Create these pixelated eyes, hair and smile using the 1" Square Punch.  Trim in 1/2 with the Paper Snips for smaller lines in the hair and smile.
 
Layer the Marina Mist 1" square over the Whisper White 1" square for this pixelated eye.
Highlight this nose with the Crumb Cake ink and Stampin' Sponge.  This will help separate the two yet resemble a pixelated nose.
 
The colors for this card came together with the aide of our Color Coach (#130118).  It's a MUST HAVE tool for pairing up colors and creating a WOW card.
A Creeper is a bad guy/zombie in the game... I couldn't resist a nod to the silliness of it in this picture.  Cat/Kitten pictures are always fun.

Even in a pinch - you can quickly create a custom card that will make you stand out from the crowd.  Here, an answer to my son's last minute request for a Minecraft card for one of his buds.  It's fun to see the kids, as they are turning 10, come into their own and see the world anew.  Your best friend can be your smart phone or computer, simply look up what ever fits the style of the recipient.  WOW when you go above and beyond by personalizing for that someone special (from 10 to 110)!

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
