Batman Birthday Wishes hand-stamped card and bag

When celebrating a boy's birthday, sometimes you have to get creative.  My nephew just turned 9 so, using Punch Art, I created this cool Batman Inspired 9th Birthday card.  Evan and his father (who passed this summer) embraced a serious love of the caped crusader and I hope that this hand-stamped punch-art card and gift bag celebrates his style (being filled with Batman toys and new clothes should help, too, lol).

Taking the Basic Black card stock and Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die and creating this large butterfly.   Shape this butterfly into a Bat when you punch off the bottom of the wings with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  (This would be great for a Halloween card, too!)
Using the Circles Collection Framelits, Big Shot and Magnetic Platform punch out this Whisper White 'Bat Signal' circle.  Adhere with SNAIL adhesive.  Layer towards the top of the Smoky Slate card base.
Create the lights of the 'signal' with our White Stampin' Chalk Marker* and a Ruler!  Easy Peasy!
This simple 'Happy Birthday' in Basic Black ink says it all... while not taking away from the Bat Signal card.
My brother-in-law shared his love of and passion for Batman... so it's extra special these days for his family.
Here, Evan and my kiddos, enjoy family time.  Celebrating life with love and laughter.
Happy Birthday big boy!!
Creating a like image for my Gift Bag was easy to do.  Adding this 'silhouette' #9 for his 9th birthday is similar to how the silhouette of Batman is in the signal light. 
I'm so glad that you came by today!  I try to post daily tutorials, projects and more.  Come and visit often, sharing me with your family and friends!  Join me in my many Classes (on-line and in-person) and consider Joining My Team (or refer a friend or family member to Join My Team and YOU get PAID!)!
Have fun with Punch Art and take a Butterfly card from cute to a Batman COOL CARD (for one cool kid).  So as we celebrate Evan, his love of the caped crusader and another fun birthday... have FUN with the cards you create while getting personal!  Creating a boy's card can be a challenge.. especially as his (and my son's age range) isn't a full teen nor a little boy any more (sigh, where does the time go?!?!).  This fun hand-stamped, punch-art card is a great way to show we care.

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

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
