Yahoo! Yahoo! Celebrate good times come on ! - Let's celebrate
We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!! We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' Blogs and our very special Guest Designer, Lynn from My Cards N Stuff !!
There's a party going on right here a celebration to last troughout the years. So bring your good times and your laughter too - we're gonna celebrate your party with you ! Who doesn't think of Kool & the Gang when it comes to celebrations?! :) We are very excited to show off our celebration material to you! We have come up with some great ways to celebrate all sorts of events! Birthday, Holidays, Just because days... loads of fun to be had throughout the hop! We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!! Sooooo, let's get hopping...
If you've hopped along from 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, I'm featuring the "Of Mice and Lil Men" set.... For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the preview!!
My project for the hop is another Disney card (I've been on a Disney kick) for a birthday celebration. July is a big birthday mont in my family, not the least of which is my son's. He is having a big on this year- 21! You wouldn't necessarily know that by the card, but I let him choose which Cricut cut he wanted, and this was his choice. He is a native central Floridian, and I think that kind of puts Disney in the blood. (Both of my kids grew up going to Disney theme parks for school field trips...spoiled, I know.)
Genie is cut at 5" from the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge. Any of you who have used these cartridges know the cuts need to be fairly large to be able to deal with all of the little pieces. I went for a Moroccan(ish) theme in the background of this 5.5" x 5.5" card in browns and reddish tones (brown is his favorite color). Most of the background paper is DCWV, the rest is from my stash. Back to front there is a layer of glitter paper, then some shimmer paper, and finally a piece that was dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and inked with bronze and copper metallic ink.
Originally the Genie and the lamp were one piece, but I wanted to put him on an Action Wobble and the lamp kept bending, so I snipped them apart and attached them separately. The sentiment is from the sentiment set shown above. Did I mention I really love K Andrew Designs stamps!!
Don't forget to check out one of Kristal's newer sets Sweet July! It has lots of wonderful 4th of July Holiday fun but it is not just for the 4th it is great all year round with the "you're invited" stamp and so much more! Just what you need to make the perfect invitations!!! The Genie is on an Action Wobble to put a little extra fun in the card.
Now for some Blog Candy! Since this is my first blog hop I figured I should celebrate with a little something. I have a small set of K Andrew Designs "Sympathetic Sayings" that I will be giving to one lucky crafter. I will draw the winner Sunday 7/22. Please leave a comment with an email address so I can contact you if you are the winner.
Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Lisa
