Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Heather from Heather's Crafty Blog Space, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Along the way, you'll see NEW ideas for creating Fall & Halloween cards and MORE with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from Faith'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 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:


**Get 20% OFF on all stamps by using this code:**

Kristal's THREE newest stamps sets are LARGER sets -- perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...  For more details or to make one these sets YOURS, please click on the preview:

Fall-O-Ween benefits "Adopt a Classroom"

Winter Wishes benefits "Adopt a Classroom"

Scripture Sayings benefits "Good Samaritan Health Center"

For my project, I'm featuring the Fall-o-ween set.







"Coffee & Tea for You & Me" benefits Wayside House for Women









"Winged Things" benefits E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation


"Sympathetic Sayings" benefits Camp Good Days & Special Times

"Fashionable Friends" benefits Cancer Angels

For this weeks project I had to step outside of my comfort zone!  I am not a big fan of Halloween but once I sat down and started, I could not stop!!!  Please note that all of  Kristal's stamp sets (some are shown above) are interchangeable, this means you can use any stamp from one set and match it with another stamp from one of the other sets!!!  And for all of you joining us for the Getting Cricky Blog Hop, Kristal is offering 20% OFF on any of her sets, just use this code at checkout: 20ILDI





Isn't she just the cutest spider you have ever seen??
I used Stampin Up paper for the base and for the shadow image and for the white spider web I used a glitter paper.
I used my Mesh embossing folder for some texture.
I cut the image @ 4 1/4" from Cricut's Mini Monsters cartridge.
Peachy Keen stamp for the eye's.
Eeek! from Kristal's Fall-o-ween stamp set.
Purple stone brad from K&Co.



This was just a qick card I made using scraps and Kristal's stamps!!
The spider is too cute to scare anyone!!

Adorable cards Ilde! Love the sparkly spider on the first one - even my girls could not be frightened by that one :) We don't really do Halloween at my house and I am not much of a decorator for seasons other than Christmas. I do love fall though and would decorate for it - i just never think about it :) Getting ready for fall.... hmm. I tend to do more crafting in the fall and winter months and lately I have been organizing and cleaning up my craft room and my craft supplies so I guess that could count as getting ready for fall.
