Getting Cricky Ustream and Blog Hop

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for tonight's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  Along the way, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from Shawn 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:

To say "THANK YOU" for hopping along with us today, EVERYONE who orders 25.00 or more will receive a FREE mini stamp set, and everyone who orders 45.00 or more will receive a FREE full stamp set (random) with your order. PLUS, for FREE shipping, use the code: postagevalue.

Kristal's newest stamps sets are LARGER sets -- perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...  For more details or to make one these sets YOURS, please click on the preview:

For my first project, I am using both the Pirate Tales & Fish Scales and Pirate Party sets.
I used my Gypsy to weld the card together from Pack Your Bags. For the mermaid from Pirate Party, I stamped her on glittery polka-dotted patterned paper and cut out her tail and bikini top. The adorable face is from the same stamp set. I used my iRock for her belly button gem. I attached all the sea critters with foam tape for dimension and added googly eyes. I used "tales of a mermaid" from the Pirate Tales & Fish Scales stamp set.
For my second project, I used Owly-Hoo and Winged Things. I have wanted to use this adorable owl from Camping Critters for a long time I embossed his belly with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The green background is a Spellbinders Nestabilities die. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper and then inked it with Tim Holtz distress ink. The twine is from The Twinery. For the sentiment, I used Owly Hoo for "owl", "be", "you" and the heart. For seeing, I used Winged Things and created it by using three stamps and taping over the parts I didn't want to use.

I am entering this card in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge #84 - For The Birds.

I have BLOG CANDY!  I'm giving away a set of K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea For You & Me stamps!!
