Show Your Style

Welcome to Getting Cricky's "Show Your Style" Blog Hop.

I'm so excited to be the Guest Designer for this month's  Hop.

If you've arrived from Kristal's blog  then you are on your way.
 As you hop along this weekend, you'll get to know the designers a little better as they share their crafting preferences and personal styles.
 Kristal's stamps are among  my favorite cardmaking tools.  Although I enjoy making altered projects and scrapbook pages, cardmaking has become my papercrafting passion.  I love to add lots of mats and paper layers to my projects, but I have a rather clean and simple style.  My favorite embellishments include ribbon and Stickles and Chalk Inks.


This card truly represents my personal style: paper layering, ribbon, and inking.  Instead of Stickles on this project, I chose to heat emboss the flower and sentiment images - it adds just the right shine!
The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs' Coffee and Tea Treats Tag Along set. 
Here's the  stamp set:
It's the companion set for these two sets:



You can purchase all of Kristal's stamp sets  HERE.  Remember that $1 from every stamp set sold is donated to charity.  And, you just can't beat the quality of these stamps.

Time for your next stop which is the very talented Lisa's wonderful "A Mermaid's Crafts" blog.
If you get lost along the way you can always start over  HERE.

I hope you enjoy getting to know the talented gals that design for Getting Cricky.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn
