CANADA, EH! HOP WITH SCRAP'N STAMP


We've got 3 Canadian Prize Packs to give away for this hop. One for someone who comments on Facebook, one for someone who comments on our respective Instagram posts and of course one for someone who comments on the blog posts. 

Now, I'll be honest. This was hard! I had all kinds of ideas but putting them to paper with what I had on hand was a different story. But I did have polar bears and I just learned that 2/3rd's of the worlds polar bears live in Canada? I didn't know that until today. So polar bears it is!


I used the Polar Bear Pals Stamps and dies and the balloons are from the Safari Party Stamp Set and they are all from My Favorite Things. The Cloud Stencil is also from MFT.


I stamped the bears with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, colored them in with my limited collection of copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. 


I used Broken China Distress Oxide ink, a blending tool and the Cloud Stencil to fill a white piece of card stock with clouds. I cut out a few circles and tucked the bears in behind them. I stamped some balloons and colored them in with the same copic color pens.


I added a LOT of craft foam and then layered it onto a piece of patterned paper from the B&W Stripes Paper Pack also from MFT. 

How are you spending your Canada Day? 
What is Canada Day? - The Immigrant Education Society - TIES
We're spending it inside because it's POURING rain here today. 

Be sure to join in the Random Acts of Cardness that happens on the Scrap'n Stamp Facebook page. Each day has a different prompt for you to join in on.


SO LET'S HOP!
And don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of those gift packs.

OH! SNAP!


I picked up some happy mail yesterday and after a morning of errands I found some time to play. I recently started my retirement and my husband (fingers crossed) will join me in this next stage of our lives soon. Our motto for this next stage is 'take the scenic route' so I knew I had to order the Oh! Snap stamp set.



I kept the card really simple. I stamped 3 of the cameras from the set using Midnight ink randomly onto some white card stock. I should have stamped the sentiment first to be sure of the placement but I lucked out with just enough space for it. I used the little teardrop stamp with the heart in it to fill in some of the gaps.


To add color to the page I turned the stamps over and inked up the back of the stamp. I stamped it off once on scrap paper and then stamped it over top of each image. I love this look.


I layered it onto a piece of black card stock leaving a tiny frame and then adhered that to a grey card base.

PEEKING PETS BIRTHDAY CARD


Our daughters were visiting this past weekend and my oldest asked me to make a birthday card for her boss. Her boss loves cats so I pulled out the new Peeking Pets Stamps and the coordinating dies from Catherine Pooler and had some fun. I colored this kitty up to look like her friends cat and added those super fun glasses from the new Pet Specs Dies
It's a birthday party so of course the cat needs a party hat (from the Peeking Pets Stamp set), some balloons and a sentiment (from the Birthday Icons Stamp Set) and a fun banner.
I used papers from the new Poppin' Patterned Paper collection and die cut the banners using the Build-a-Bunting Dies


I needed something to layer all the pieces onto and chose to cut the Canyon Mini Cover Plate from white card stock. I adhered it to a grey card base and then adhered everything directly onto the card except the hat - that I added with some craft foam.

CELEBRATE!!



I haven't had as much time as I'd like to stamp recently but that's about to change. I retired yesterday WOOHOO!! and we are officially moved into our new place. We still have work to do - unpacking and organizing and still have more renos to do but it's so nice to wake up here today and not have to go to work.
I headed down to what's going to be my craft room/exercise room and started stamping. Because it's grad weekend here I made a grad card.


I started with the Sunburst Stencil and using a blending tool I added some Limoncello ink out to the edges. Next I stamped the banner strings from the Build-a-Bunting Stamp Set and then using the Build-a-Bunting dies I cut out some banner pieces using one of the papers from the Poppin' Patterned Paper. I added all the pieces to the strings with some liquid glue. 
Next I cut the frame from the Chalkboard Frame Dies set from white card stock and dragged the Black Jack ink over top to make a grey frame. The dog is from the Peeking Pets Stamp Set, cut out with the Peeking Pets Dies and colored in using a blender pen with Sand Castle and Over Coffee ink. The grad cap is from the Peeking Pets Stamp Set and those super cute glasses are cut from black card stock using the Pet Specs Dies. I LOVE THOSE!!


I added a few of the star sequins that are in the Soda Springs Sequin Mix and the sentiment is from the Yay Gifts Stamp Set. I used some adhesive strips to add the frame, layered it onto some black card stock and then added it to a white card base.
