Whooo's in the Wood hand-stamped CardMaking tutorial

Do you ever see those gleaming, colorful spots of light at night and get a start?  It's simply the eyes of the critters out and about, checking me out as I go on a walk.  This hand-crafted card was inspired by those critters and their eyes peaking out at me from the dark.  With a fun punch-art aspect, this knot in the wood has you wondering whoooooo's in it - lol.  Enjoy this whimsical hand-stamped, punch-art card that is perfect for Halloween or any time you want to say helloooooo!
Create this Owl punch-art card with:
Hardwood background stamp (wood 133032/clear 133035)
And Many More stamp set (wood 134273/clear 134276)
Crumb Cake card stock (120953)
Crushed Curry card stock (131173)
Early Espresso card stock (119686)
Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (130132)
Early Espresso ink pad (126974)
Owl Builder punch (118074)
1-3/4" Circle punch (119850)

These little eyes are almost spooky - lol.  So cute - I love how they 'glow' in the knot in this wood.  Simply punch the eyes in Crushed Curry and Early Espresso card stock twice (once for the outside and one for the inside).  Using the fine tip of the Mulitpurpose Liquid Adhesive you can adhere them to the 1-3/4" Circle Punch in the Early Espresso card stock.

 
Stamping the Hardwood background stamp on the Crumb Cake card stock in the Early Espresso ink pad allows for a great nature inspired base to this card. 
Inside the cutest Owl awaits!  Using the Owl Builder Punch and this sheet of Early Espresso patterned Designer Series Paper (from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack) he's a stylish punch-art waiting to wish youooooo a Happy Halloween!  Whooooo - Youooooo?? Yes!! (te, he, he, he)
 
Add him to a limb with the stamped sentiment from the And Many More stamp set.  Stamping the sentiment first allows for a proper placement of the punch-art owl.  I chose the Happy Halloween (for the Boo-Tastic Crafternoon Card Making class) but really, any sentiment would work - from 'Whoooo's having a birthday to a simple 'Hi'!  (Did YOU miss out on this cool class??  Sign Up and RSVP for my upcoming classes - join in on the fun!)

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
