All About Fall 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 Amy'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:






Kristal's THREE newest stamps sets are LARGER sets -- perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...  For more details or to make one of 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"
Here are some cards I made using the Fall-O-Ween set..  I used several punches to create the scenes.


To stamp the ghosts, I inked up single letters from the BOO word stamp.  I punched a circle for the moon and sponged around it for the background paper.and then added some ink to the moon to make it look like wispy clouds.
I stamped the word BOO twice and tied off the card with a little twine that I inked up a little with the same ink I stamped and sponged with.

My second card I used some border punches, a circle punch, a Martha Stuart haunted house punch and a few others.  I punched the moon from some mosaic patterned paper.  I really like the look of the finished card.


Leave a comment and become a follower if you like what you see, for a chance to win the 4x6 stamp set pictured above.  It doesn't come in the original package but it is brand new, never used.  Enjoy the hop!  You can get a 20% discount to use in Kristal's store by using the code 20janice good through Sunday night.
Hugs and smiles, Janice

  79. I really love the Haunted House spooky card. It had so much cool detail and embellishment.

    For your first BOO ghost card, I like how you made whispy clouds by inking them with a dark blue. That's a cool technique I will have to try out. Thanks for sharing. I am a new follower.
