Rawr Dinosaur hand-stamped card

RAWRRRRRR!!  I remember in high school watching the first Jurassic Park movie at a drive in (one of the last that was around).  The fog had just rolled in when the T-Rex popped his head onto the screen with a loud RAWR!!  The timing, the scene and the whole drive-in was shaking with fear!!  It was the best movie (at the time) and a decent translation from the book (I always read the book before watching a movie based on it).  This new No Bones About it stamp set was a MUST on my to-get list!!  With Jurassic World now out - it's PERFECTLY timed (like the fog and T-Rex) to pop into our lives!  Enjoy this fun hand-crafted card that we did at our recent Stamper's 10 Club that translated to a fun SWAP at the upcoming Inspire, Create, Share Stampin' Up! Convention!

OK so I love a good surprise!  Here a simple scoring will create this cool 'reveal' type card!  The Simply Scoring Tool makes it easy to score your card stock (along the 11" side) at 2-1/2 and 9-1/2" then cut across it at the 4-1/4" mark to create two perfectly scored cards that will have a cool door/tri-fold effect.  I actually LOVE using the Simply Scoring Tool to score ALL of my cards - it makes for a crisp and more professional look!

Having this fun bone/skeleton rubber stamped image appear on the inside flap is a nice surprise to who ever receives it.  Using the Stampin' Sponge to make the edges distressed is easy to do!  After stamping the dinosaur and skeleton on Very Vanilla with the Garden Green and Chocolate Chip ink pads, use the sponge along the 2-1/2" circle punched images and outside of the closed card for a rougher look!
With coordinating ferns and track stamps you are limitless in how you create your hand-stamped card. 

My 9 year old daughter stepped up HUGE in helping me to stamp 50 of these Jurassic themed cards.  My 7 year old daughter even sponged the circles and edges!  My hubby helped me to 'fix' the dinosaurs that covered the words - lol - as I had a two classes and a luncheon to attend this past weekend (before heading off to Utah).  I love that crafting is LIMITLESS in age and ability - we can all have fun rubber stamping and creating something awesome!
I love a good pun - this cute No Bones About It is a fun sentiment on the inside of the card!  I'm stumped, at times, what to write on the inside of cards.  Having a sentiment gives my brain a break on witty things to say - lol.

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
