I mustache you to have a Happy Father's Day hand-stamped card

I love facial hair on men.. so this new hipster rage of mustache's really speaks to me!!  With my Italian hubby (who wishes I'd let him shave it all off - yet I love his goatee, lol) and his chromed out facial hair.. this easy, fast, punch-art, hand-stamped card was designed to honor the man who fathered our 6 amazing kids!!  So Happy Father's Day (though this hand-stamped card works for so many reasons) and I 'mustache' you to smile and have a delightful day!!
Create this fun Mustache and Bow-Tie card with:
And Many More stamp set (wood 134273/clear 134276)

OK so my husband is a simple man.  He isn't all about the frills.  This clean, warm card is ideal for the father of my kids!  Simply create this Mustache using the NEW Framelit on the Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine!  I know - it is sooo cute!!  Even if you aren't hipster (my hubby isn't) this mustache is a fun way to play!!
 
I LOVE the Bow-Tie look.  Here it's super easy to create!!  I used to make these bows with the aide of my Hot Glue Gun and yes, yes - I'd get burned (Carol - I know you are cringing right now - lol).  With the New Fast Fusion adhesive you can create this punch art bow with ease and it will stay together!!  Simply Punch the same Chocolate Chip Designer Sheet from the Neutrals Stack and use the opposite side!  No waste! 
 
Punch these two Large Ovals out, apply the Fast Fusion adhesive and use your arm in a 'check' motion to stop the adhesive from applying.  (Super strong adhesive in a hand applicator - this check motion with your wrist will break that connection.)
 
Fold the Ovals in 1/2 for each side of the bow.  Add the 3/4" Circle Punched pattern to the center for the 'knot'.  This is an easy 3D bow and with our Ovals Collection Framelits - you can create bows in a plethora of sizes!!
 


Here the youngest four pile up on their dad for Father's Day Loving.

With a busy life of kids, work, home, church, etc - my husband is super dad.  His simple desires (ummm - like Tommy's Burgers, a California Chili Burger/Fry iconic establishment for his Father's Day meal - lol) his love of family and our life - he deserves a card that says it all.  Best Dad Ever - my kids have a dad who sacrafices so much for them... and his simple needs are met with this simple card.  A card doesn't have to be elaborate to mean the world to a person.  I 'mustache' you to have FUN this Father's Day... sometimes it's the simple moments in life that are the best.

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
