U R So Sweet Blog Hop

Welcome to the UR So Sweet Blog Hop!!!!

I hope you have enjoyed the week long fun that we have had with the Pre Hop Project Promo!
I also Hope that you have had a chance to stop over at K Andrew's website to take a look at her stamp sets!

If you've Hopped here from Sherry's page you are in the right place! :) If you have found my page from from blogger then please go to Getting Cricky and start from the beginning so you can see ALL of the amazing projects the team has to show you :)
For my project for the Hop I am switching it up a little bit and I am going to do a project with a few different sets and a few different projects....

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 the first project I am going to show you a card I made with the Owly Who Sentiments and Hoot Owl Image set: and Hooty Owl Accessories Images

I loved making this card! piecing all the papers together made it fun!!!

For my next project I just took a clear votive holder and stained it red and put a white ribbon around it and stamped a pair of lips on it from K Andrews set: "Its Valentines!"
This is super simple to do... You just take Mod Podge and mix it in a small cup with the color of food coloring you want your glass to be tinted... then you brush it onto the glass and let it dry... I use a few coats to make it darker ... As it dries you will see the tint...

For My Next Project I created a Card using the "Food For Thought" Stamp set.

For this card I used a simple pink card stock and stamped the background with the Stamp Set "Food For Thought" with the word YUM because the cupcake image that I used looked yummy! 
Then I punched holes in the top and tied it with a ribbon so that it would stay closed :) 

For my Last Card I did a pop out card .. I know its hard to tell but it actually has 3 layers...
For this I used simple colors for the card stock and glitter to make it pop.
For this card I used the stamp sets Fall-O-Ween and Splashtastic Summer
