Getting Cricky with It Blog hop

Howdy folks?? How are you all enjoying the blog hop? Well welcome to Kristal’s 1st Stamp Releasing Blog hop! Are ya ready for some HOPPING??? I know I am! Didn’t ya just love Brenda’s creation?? IF you are just starting the hop head on over at the beginning @ Getting Cricky with Kristal.

Well, lets get on with the show!

Aren’t you just loving Kristal’s new ART STAMP sets?? Aren’t they great? I heart them!! Speaking of heart.. Kristal has a big big Heart.. For every stamp set she sells she donates $1 to a charity. This is just not for a limited time, she will do this all the time! so go on and go buy yourself a few sets, its going to a good cause! So head on over to her online store by clicking >K. Andrew Design <

This week I have been showcasing Kristal's “FREEDOM ISN’T FREE” set and been creating lots of cards! If you would like to see, just scroll down to the earlier post.

For today, I created 2 more cards. This 1st card I used Versamark ink and stamped the sentiment all over the card to create a background image on to white cardstock. Then I heat embossed it using white embossing powered and then put the heat gun to it. Once all dried, I used Colorbox “warm Red” chalk ink and blended it onto the white cardstock using foam on the blending tool. I then used white twine to wrap all around and topped it off with a red button!

My 2nd card I created using a technique I have seen Vicky P from LILY PAD CARD do by using Distressing Ink to make background images, landscape scenes and flowers. I’m liking getting INKY! I tried to make it look like the sun was setting and ya know that pretty purply/orange sky you get? Well I tried to create that. I think it turned on pretty cool! THen of course I used the perfect sentiment from “FREEDOM ISN’T FREE” set.
