There are so many things about Kristal’s stamps that I love. They each benefit charity with at least $1 per stamp set going to the charity noted on the stamp set package. Currently those charities are: 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. Over time, this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. Each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help! Additionally, all these stamps are made and assembled here in the USA, which ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.

If you’ve been hopping along on the right path, you should have arrived from the amazingly talented Miss Amy at Love To Crop, if not, please be sure to visit Getting Cricky to start at the beginning. Now, onto my project. The theme is U R So Sweet and we were to make a project that was Valentine themed or a project that was for our “sweetie”. Since her birth, we’ve pretty much always called my oldest daughter Sweet Pea and her birthday is coming up soon. I made this card for her but I’m not sure I’ll be able to hold out until her birthday to give it to her…
6 x 12 inch paper for card base (I used Core’dinations)
5.75 x 5.75 inch mat (I used DCWV open stock from Joann’s)
Beaded floral spray (Visit this link for a tutorial)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (I used Seedless Grape and Festive Berry)
Adhesive (Tombow mono adhesive, glue gun and foam dots used)
Delilah Tags SVG set from Lettering Delights
K Andrew Designs Food For Thought
Score your 6 x 12 inch piece of paper at 6 inches or just fold in half. Cut tag 5 from the SVG kit making sure to ungroup the layers and remove the inside circle. Cut it just under 6 inches. Cut the inside circle in two different sizes so they nest. Attach your beaded spray to your card with glue. Stamp your sentiments…I used the I from I relish, love, the you from you are, the best, sweet and then pea comes from the word peas to get the sentiment the way I did. I stamped using versafine ink, heat set for a few minutes, and then added to the slightly larger circle using foam dots, then added both circles to the tag with foam dots and finally added the entire piece to the card base. The beaded spray was hot glued and I used my distress ink to paint the flowers. I hope she loves it as much as I do.
Next up is my sweet friend Ildi. Ildi I love you mamma and am so glad we are always side-by-side in these hops!!!
