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 wonderful WINTER WISHES stamp set.
The card I created here is a5X6.5 card. The blue snowflake mat paper is from K&Co. It is embossed with a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. The ornaments are cut from the Cricut cartridge Holiday Cakes. I used papers from DCWV and AC Specialty.
To jazz the ornaments up, I added some little holiday trinket charms and a few colored gems to them. I found these cute little trinkets are Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, and just could not resist them.
And I finished the ornaments with three different ribbons from my stash of holiday ribbon.
The sentiment I chose for the card is a bright and happy " Merry Christmas "from Krystal's WINTER WISHES stamp set. The most amazing thing about Kristal's stamps is that they can all be mixed and matched to create so many different sentiments for so many different projects. They are just so versatile.
I have some fabulous Blog Candy for you. I will be giving away one of
Kristal's WINTER WISHES stamp sets.
