Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!
Can you believe it’s already been a month since the last Getting Cricky Blog Hop…me either! My Faithful Leader Kristal Andrew and fellow DT Sisters are so excited to showcase the newest sets to hit K Andrew Designs. There is so much flexibility with these stamps sets…just you wait and see. This month our theme is Fall-O-Ween…you know Fall and Halloween projects…don’t be surprised if you see a winter or Christmas themed project or two or five either though!
Our special guest this month is Heather from Heather’s Crafty Blog Space, and we are just THRILLED to have her join us! If you’ve hopped along from Janis’ Blog, then you are right on track! If you are just blog stalking me and reading this post because you got an alert, be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal’s blog (you’ll want to catch up on all the FUN!!). As most of you know, each of Kristal’s stamp sets benefit charity with $1 per stamp set going the charity noted package. Kristal matches that dollar for dollar as well.
Kristal currently donates to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help, plus K Andrew Designs stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in the US! Support our economy, give Americans jobs and buy made in the USA!
Now…let’s talk about the stamps the DT is featuring tonight shall we…see for yourselves:
|Fall-O-Ween benefits “Adopt a Classroom”|
|Winter Wishes benefits “Adopt a Classroom”|
|Scripture Sayings benefits “Good Samaritan Health Center”|
For my projects, I’ve chosen to feature ALL of the above sets. First up we have a toilet paper roll gift card holder using Winter Wishes:
This was really simple…I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the toilet paper core all fancy like after painting the core red and letting it dry. I smooshed it flat in my Grand Calibur, embellished and inserted my visa just to show you what it looks! Cute huh?!?!?
Ok…next from the Scrpiture Sayings set (my personal new favorite set), is this:
Again I used Spellbinders and just embellished your basic A2 Card base. A little tip for ya….when you have paper that is flimsy and you want to use it to tie ribbon around (or in my case tape ribbon around) mount it to some ugly cardstock…that’s what I did here. Great way to use up that old ugly paper and no one has to know…unless you tell them!
Finally, I promised you I’d take stamping somewhere you’ve never seen it go before right….check out how I used the Fall-O-Ween set:
Yes folks…this IS a cookie I stamped!!!!
Here’s what it looks like frosted:
And here’s a close-up of the stamping:
