Challenge #4- Twisted Easel Challenge

I have seen this Awesome Twisted Easel Card done before and I had to make it.
I used spellbinders dies for the ovals and Label and the cricut cart Celebrations for the cupcakes and the sizzix sizzlits for the tag and the number. I also used scribbles for the hearts and dots.

Challenge #3- Triple Time Stamp Technique

                                          Card measurements....
2" x 3 1/4" .... mat 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"
3" x 4 1/4" .... mat 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" .... base 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" fold base in half
An easy card to do if your good with measurements. It requires two coordinating ink colors plus black for your sentiment, two floral stamps, a sentiment stamp, card stock paper in white and Pink, cording, I added a Med. Pink Bow and the middle of the Bow and each corner I used a pink Pearl for my embellishment.
You'll need to stack the white card stock with a little adhesive in the center of each piece while your stamping them so that your pieces don't shift. First stamp the sentiment, then the lighter background color and finally the darker flower. Separate the pieces and secure the mats with adhesive wrapping the middle card with cord and adding an embellishment. The middle card also gets pop dots to raise for interest. Finally secure the layers to the folded base and your completed. Hope you Enjoy making this Awesome card.
Thanks and Hugs                                                                                                                    Anita Braddock

Welcome the “Getting Cricky With It” Surprise Blog Hop for Kristal!!!

Today the Design Team is bringing you some very special projects created for our wonderful and amazing leader Kristal! Our term is almost over and we wanted to show her just how much we appreciate ALL that she has done for us this term. The projects that we will be sharing with you will also be sent to Kristal. We encourage ALL of her fans to join in on the fun as well! Be sure to add your card/project to the link below and then be sure to mail it off to her!

If you've hopped along from Larelyn 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:

                                     This is the Card I made for Kristal our Design Team Leader. 
Kristal you have been a great Friend and Leader I have never been in a Design Team before so I was Hesitant with this undertaking but you made me feel like I could do this. I sent you my Projects and you chose me to be a member of you Team and I have had a wonderful time in the special Group of ladies.
I have learned so many new ways to make Cards and Scrapbook pages. You and the Team encouraged all of us to give our all. So Kristal thanks you for Being the Very Special Lady you are. I have Grown in my Crafting because of you and everyone on this Team.
In that my Card is a Tribute to you for all you have done for me and everyone on the great Design Team 
I hope you will love it always and it is on its way to you to keep for ever.

For this card I made for Kristal I used the spellbinders labels Twenty three for the base of the card I layered 
the front and inside with paper cut with the Labels Twenty Three. For  The Butterfly I used Tim Holts distressed ink and then used Glitter for sparkle I then layered all three of the Butterfly die and added 2 sm. pearls. I used pop dots for the Damnation. I used KAndrew Design Stamps Winged things.
Hope you love your card Kristal its mad with much Love and hugs.

For My Project I have made An Anniversary Card.
I have made the Base of my Card and then used the Spellbinder's Edgeabilities.

I the layered my card with the Label four die, I inked the edge of the label. I used the Sizzix Hearts  Embossing forder for the labels four on the front of my card.
I used my Cricut and used the Sweetheart Cartridge, I cut out the Date Night Couple.
I layered them by cutting each layer separately with each color. I had to cut out the first layer in Skin color and each layer is cut in the different colors. I glued them to the Base layer. and cut out a layer in Black to have the shadow effect. I used 3D pop dots to add Dimension for the Image on the front. I used KAndrews Stamp Sets It's Valentine's, & I Heart You.  You can order Kandrews Stamps at  www.kandrewdesigns.com

I have used KAndrews Stamp sets. I stamped my owls multiple times on different papers then I cut and layered them to give dimension.

I Stamped my Tree limbs with KAndrews stamps. I added 3D dots to my Owls so they will look like they are perched on the Tree Limbs. For my Sentiment  I used my Labels four.
