Getting Cricky In Like A Lion Blog Hop!!

For my BLOGAVERSARY GIVEAWAY, click HERE!


Welcome to the "In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!! We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!! Throughout the hop, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from our fabulous leader, Kristal, 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...

For my project tonight, I'm featuring the All About Animals stamp set:


I just love the fun sayings on this set!!


For my project, I created a 3D lamb and lion and a card to go with them!!


The adorable lamb is cut from Noah's ABC's at 4" from Core'dinations cardstock. I added cotton for her fur.


The lion is from the same cart, also at 4" and I used tickle yearn for his mane.


For the card, I used Core'dinations paper and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossing folder. I wanted the labels for the sentiments to match the embossing, so I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities circle and lacy circle dies. I inked them with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. "Miss Ewe" and "No Lion" are from All About Animals. I finished it off with a  Recollections rhinestone design, ribbon from Hobby Lobby and a button from my stash.

My BLOG CANDY for this hop is my blogaversary giveaway!! You could win Kristal's Coffee & Tea Tag Along stamps, a Cricut Four Legged Friends cart, Spellbinders dies, My Mind's Eye paper stacks and more!! Click HERE to enter!!

Now you can hop on over to your next stop, the fabulous HEATHER of Heather's crafty Blog Space!!
