U R SO SWEET Getting Cricky Blog Hop


Welcome to the "U R SO SWEET" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!! We have an EXTRA SPECIAL hop for you this month -- All week long, the Design Team has been featuring many of Kristal's stamp sets in anticipation of the hop... If you've missed out on any of the week, be sure to check out our previous posts for MORE THAN 100 CREATIVE IDEAS and PROJECTS using Kristal's stamps as well as giveaways, promotions, tips, and tutorials!!

If you've hopped along from my sweet and talented friend LINDA then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating 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. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

K Andrew's 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 America. You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs:





Kristal's stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...

WINTER WISHES
 

K Andrew Designs


So on to my project:

Recipe: 
Cartridge(s):  Sweethearts and Victorian Romance
Paper: Recollections
Ink: SU Real Red
Ribbon came from Hobby Lobby
Sentiment: K Andrew's Winter Wishes
Tag: Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Two
Bling: imaginisce i-rock crystals
Stickles: blue and frosted lace
White Gelly Roll Pen

My card is a typical A2 sized card.  The heart is cut at 4 inches from Victorian Romance Cricut Cart.  The birds are cut at 2.5 inches from Sweeethearts Cricut Cartridge.  They can be found on page 67 and the cuts I used were Birdnest, Bridnest-s and the layers.  I cut them several times to get the colors I wanted and then cut the colors of each image I wanted and added to the blue layer which I used as a base layer.  I put some clear stickles on my finger and just kinda rubbed it all over the heart to give it some shine.  I added blue to the male bird's hat.  I used my white gelly roll pen to doodle.  

Have you seen the new Valentine stamps that is available for pre-order?  Well if you haven't take a look below.  Also, if your purchase is $25 or more, you will get the Key to My Heart Mini Stamp Set free, while supplies last!
