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.
