"So Thank-Fall" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the "So Thank-Fall" 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 - Letillia from Diva of 5, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Along the way, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

 If you've hopped along from Ildi 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!

For my project, I'm featuring the Fall-O-Ween

Here is my project. I had so much fun making these. I do have to be honest this is my second attempt at this. I made thema nd ran my husband to the airport and since we only have one dog now, we let her have free reign of the house.... well she felt the dining room table was a place she could go.
She is an 85lb. Chocolate Lab. I wish I could have seen her up on this table though :)

The theme of this is Thank-FALL.
I made this little tray of goodies to take to my Sister-in-Law's house tomorrow for a candle party. I am thankful to have great friends and family to share these yummy goodies with tomorrow (Saturday)
This is a combination of CREEPY Cupcakes, Cit-Cats, and Oreo Cookies.

I jsut made regular cupcake, frosted them orange and put spider psrinkles on them, the little black ones were made with an orange silcone pumpkin mold. Then frsoted with orange and purple frsoting and swirled for fun. All of the cupcakes were dusted with Disco Dust, edible non-toxic glitter.

For the Kit-Kat wrappers I started with white frosting sheets.

Then I used Orange icing tint

I sread it with a spatula to get it as even as I could

I couldnt find a clear block so I put my stamps on a tuper-ware lid

I then stamped with the edible icing colors in black the saying I wanted on the large frosting sheet

As you cane see here, I ddi NOT ink all of the letters I like the make the phrases really fit, whether they need an "s" or not. I just dont ink the S if I dont need it.

I then used Cricut CraftRoom to change Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge image to make a rectangle where I needed it to cut the words I stamped
Here are some of the cute sayings I came up with and you can see how I 'wrapped' them around the mini Kit-Kat bars. This says

SWEET with wings and the skull and I glittered the bones below the skull.

These say





These were the frosting sheets cute into circles with Cricut Essentials.
Stamped with YOU DONT SCARE ME
I thought most people twist open thier Oreos so i have a surprise inside for them. These are Halloween oreos with Orange cream found, after going to 5 places, at Walmart.


My assistant and her cupcakes

And the culprit of the first batch


I am the last stop on the hop. Be sure to follow me and come back as I have 5+ projects EVERY day of the YEAR!

Patti Ross said...

Awwwww, we just lost our 15 year old chocolate lab - Jacob Marley The Christmas Dog (yes, that was his name) I made a huge cake one day- half chocolate - half yellow. Well Jake ate the chocolate half while I ran to the store. My son said, "But mom, he needs the chocolate to stay chocolate." Now, being a vet tech for a number of years, I disagree - but in his own way it made sense to him...GRRRR!!!

Great Job!!!
