Getting Cricky "U R So Sweet" 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!!  You can find the list of Design Team Members who did the Pre-Hop projects HERE .

If you've hopped along from Debbie's Blog DD's Crafts 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 in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained 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, I'm featuring the Food For Thought, Owly Hoo And Coffee & Tea Time Stamp Sets:

I cut the cupcake box out of the Sweet Tooth Box Project Cartridge at 8 1/2". I used the cherry from the Paisley Cartridge cut at 1.8". I added stickles "cotton candy" to the cherry to glam it up a bit. I glued ribbon onto the bottom of the box before I put it together. For the tag I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities die: Labels Eight and punched a hole in it and looped the crochette yard throught the top of the cupake box. I stamped the sentiment using the Food For Thought set (sweet) and the Owly Hoo (alisious). Now when I thought about making this box I wasn't sure what I wanted to put in it. While driving in the car it came to me, a mini album of my daughter!! So I cut 10 circles from the Paisley Cartridge at 4.5". I laid 5 of them down and used ribbon to attach them as straight as I could. I then placed the other 5 circles on top of the ones on the table to cover up the ribbon. I used the Sizzix Die: Circles 2 and cut my daughters pictures as well as the backgrounds for the cupcake stamp which I used Coffee & Tea Time for. I coloured in the cupcakes using Marvy Brush Markers and stamped the word Sweet under them using the Food for Thought set.

I had alot of fun making this Cupcake box and it would make a great gift for anyone.

Right now Kristal has a special on her stamps if you buy BOTH of the new Valentine's Day sest "It's Valentines" and "I Heart You" then you get the free Mini "Key to My heart" set or if you spent $25 or more in the store then you get a free mini as well.

Also if you use the code "kristanfreeship" when checking out you will get free shipping!!!
