And NOW, we'd like for you to get to know more about us and our very special Guest Designer (and former Getting Cricky Design Team Sister), Larelyn from Handmade from My Heart!!
If you've hopped along from Patti's blog 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 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....
For my project, I'm featuring the Owly Hoo Sentiments and Winter Wishes stamp sets:
And here's my project!...
This is a 5" square card base, using Kraft cardstock. I used my Imagine machine for this card. All of the images & patterned papers are from the "Better Together" cartridge. The hearts are from the stock images that come with the Imagine machine, cut at 5", 4.5" and 4". The girl/dog image is from page 20 and is cut at 3". The image is mounted using pop-dots. The pearls are from Darice. I inked all of the edges with some Martha Stewart ink in "Chocolate". I added & tied the little pink bows to her hair using some Offray ribbon. And of course the stamps are from K Andrew Designs, using the sets shown above & Tim Holtz Distress Ink in "Walnut Stain".
What is my style? Well, I love anything & everything having to do with animals - specifically dogs. Although this card is more serious, I mostly make projects that are fun & whimsical. The thing I love most about Kristal's stamps is that I can always create the perfect sentiment because her stamps are so versatile & have so many mix & match possibilities. In addition to animals, I also love using flowers & hearts. I'm not a girly girl in real life at all, but in my crafting I totally am! I like to use soft pastel colors as well as bright & fun colors, depending on my mood, lol. Also, I am totally obsessed with details - probably too much! Thank you so much for hopping by tonight!
