This whimsical punch-art hand-crafted card is fun to create!  Use the Owl Builder Punch to create the body in Chocolate Chip, the eyes in Whisper White and Basic Black.  The Antlers are created using the Crumb Cake and the Festive Flurry Framelits - I love how one snow flake can create multiple antlers. 
 
The Secret to Punch Art is: Punch all the pieces you need in multiples - so many heads, eyes, etc and set them into piles.  Assemble the pieces when you have the piles you need.  Glue Dots (103683) work great for this small piece work.  Assemble all you eyes, then attach them to the heads, add the noses after.  Add the 'antlers' to the back of the head for a fun accent.  Add the lines after all of them are assembled for easy task break-downs.  I used the Stampin' Dimensionals (104430) to raise the nose for a cute dimension to the face.
 
Stamping the Hardwood background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink on the Crumb Cake card stock.  Punch out the shape (and use it with two mini brads to create a 'door handle').  Stamp this Very Merry sentiment from the And Many More stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on the Real Red space the punch created.  The punched out 'window' using the Decorative Label Punch for a cute accent.  I love the barn like look of this card with the Real Red accents of the card stock base.

Being prepared is a moto of many scouting groups - for me, it's a new thing - I'm often a by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl.  This year I'm trying something new - being prepared before the holiday crush with my hand-crafted Christmas Cards.  Nothing is better in the sea of mass produced cards to stand out with a pretty hand-stamped card.  Show that you care and send them some extra-special love.  Send it early (not like last year's Valentines cards that looked a lot like Christmas cards - lol).  JOIN ME in a Private Class or Upcoming Class for FUN and be a scout - be prepared with your hand-stamped Christmas Cards.

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
