At our recent Stampers 10 Club (Join Us in this crafting fun!!) we created four fabulous punch-art hand-stamped cards.  With baseball season upon us and my TV or Facebook feed filling of games for my girlfriend's kids to seeing our favorite teams play - it's all around us.  Celebrate this season with this easy and fun punch-art baseball card that we created.  It was inspired by a post on Pinterest.  

Punch these 'stitches' for the baseball out of Real Red card stock using the Chevron Boarder punch**.  Draw a 1/2 circle across the middle of the the Circles Framelits die-cut Whisper White card stock.  Using SNAIL (Simple, Neat, Affordable, In-Line adhesive) on the Silicone Craft Sheet for a clean and easy application.  **Less is MORE - Space these out for a better balance to the card and use just a hand-full.**
The Circles Card Thinlits creates great moving, interactive cards with ease!  Just use them on the Big Shot Magnetic Platform and Die-Cutting Machine for easy cutting and scoring!  See this video tutorial on how to create this secret pocket for extra writing!  (I did a second 'baseball' for the back side, too... easy and fun.)

Using the Adventure Awaits photopolymer stamp set, from the Occasions Mini, stamped in the center of the 'pocket' with a Stampin' Pierce Pad under for a clear image.  Photopolymer stamps need that extra bounce of the Stampin' Pierce Pad underneath.

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
