Bricks and butterflies hand-stamped card

I love a mix of what is soft to what is hard, creating a fun looking hand-stamped card.  Here with the look of the rough 'brick' wall and the soft, floating butterfly underneath you have a cool looking image that embraces all that is Summer at our home. This simple, quick and easy hand-stamped bricks and butterfly hand-crafted card is a fun twist on what you may expect.

I can't tell you how much I adore this new Watercolor Wings photopolymer stamp set!!  Such a beautiful collection that is limitless in color combinations.  Here pairing up the Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso inks for a warm and pretty watercolor looking butterfly.

This summer we have a wonderful collection of floating butterflies through my garden.  I adore these critters that symbolize restoration, a new start.
Creating a brick wall is fun and easy with the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  This 6"x6" extra large Embossing Folder is awesome!!  With the beauty of a red and white tipped brick wall (like we have at our home) you get the sense of the age, strength and rough that is in a brick wall.  Using the Stampin' Sponge and White Craft Ink this distressing is easy and fun to do.
With the help of our Color Coach and Paper Snips (103579) it's fun to combine colors and then create this window in the brick wall.  With super sharp tips, the Paper Snip is an amazing tool.  Here it trimmed out these 'bricks' to reveal the soft butterfly beneath.
Raised above to create dimension the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (104430).
My dear friend who blesses me with her southern charm, Helyn, reminds me to decorate the INSIDE of our cards (she is so very good at this!!).  Using the cut bricks and adding them to the inside is a great way to utilize what you may have tossed away.  I love the interest to the inside of the card that is cohesive to the front.
Creating this card is easy with this simple collection of great tools that result in a cool crafting experience.

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
