Created at a recent Ragamuffin Connect, Create and Card Making over Coffee (or tea) FREE Card Making time, this was such a fun and easy card!

Punch Art is the art of using a punch for one thing in a new way to create something different (and fun and cool!!).  Here the Washi Label Punch is so much fun!  It coordinates with stamp sets and is great for word stamp sets (like Teeny Tiny Wishes and And Many More).  Two punches of this fun and FREE (for a limited time) Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.  
OPTIONS.. this girl loves her options.  So these fun floral punch-art 'pants' are a great option.  Add a pretty bling button with our adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels.  

Take the two punched 'legs' and adhere them together with a Glue Dot.  Pop them off of the hand-stamped card with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (and on the punched balloon).

This fun and FREE Party Pants stamp set is so much fun!  Add this saying stamped in the Blackberry Bliss in-color ink (that is soon to retire) to your hand-made cards.  The coordianting Balloon Bouquet punch is designed to work with mulitple stamp sets (more bang for your buck).

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
