Scrap n' Stamp Canada Day Blog Hop

Happy Canada Day! 
Today we are celebrating Canada's 150th birthday with a special blog hop over on the Scrap 'n Stamp blog, sharing projects featuring the cute new 'Busy Beaver' stamp & die set by Taylored Expressions. Be sure to leave comments along the way because Scrap n' Stamp Canada has some prizes to give away randomly - $150 in gift certificates (3 lucky people will each win a $50 gift certificate) and a Busy Beaver Stamp & Die Set with a bonus maple leaf die. Winners will be randomly chosen and announced on the Scrap N' Stamp blog on Monday!

Here is sneak peek of the finished card - cute, right?

Here is the Busy Beaver Stamp & Die Set I received from Scrap 'n Stamp.
So adorable and check out those sentiments. So funny!

I couldn't create a Canada Day card without using some products from a couple of 
my fave Canadian manufactures. 


After stamping and die cutting my Busy Beaver image I coloured him in with Distress Markers.
His birthday hat is from the Crazy Accessories stamp with matching thinlit die. I love these sets - it makes it so easy to create accents for cards.

My background was created with the help of my Misti.
 I first stamped my circle background stamp (Halftone & Rings - Stampers Anonymous) with Candy Apple Distress Ink two times to get a nice bright red. 
I made a note of where my paper was before removing it from the Misti, giving it a spritz of water and then drying it 

I then placed the paper back on my Misti in the same place and then stamped the same image with Black Versafine Ink. I love this layered look/

The wood pieces from Southern Ridge  were painted with Candy Apple & Picket Fence Distress Paints. 

Now head on over to Karla Yungwirth's blog for even more inspiration and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win!
