Busy Beaver Canada Day Blog Hop

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

Welcome to our Busy Beaver Canada Day Blog Hop!  We are blog hopping today in celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday, sharing projects featuring the cute new ‘Busy Beaver’ stamp & die set by Taylored Expressions!

Grab a coffee and relax for a bit while you enjoy our little hop!  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 get $50 gc’s) and a Busy Beaver set with a bonus maple leaf tag die!  Winners will be randomly chosen and announced here on the SNS blog on Monday!

Today I’m sharing two cards with you- first up is my Busy Beaver Card:

I created a background using some book print paper coated with white gesso, I then used a heart stencil (this one is by Dina Wakley) and some Distress Paint in two shades of red, Barn Door & Festive Berries, to create part of my ‘Canadian flag’ background.  I like combining two shades of paint for some subtle variety and texture.  I used the 1″ Alphanumeric Dies by Tim Holtz & Sizzix to cut CANADA out of my background as well, I love how easy it is when there are multiples of each letter to work with!  The rest of the card is from the Busy Beaver stamp set- I stamped on watercolor paper and used watercolor pencils to color this cutie up.  The maple leaf die is from a sweet little tag that is a gift with purchase while supplies last!  Love it!

Here’s a closer look at the stamp set- it comes with some sweet sentiments 🙂  This adorable Busy Beaver Stamp & Die set was created by Raya’s request to help us celebrate Canada’s big 150th Birthday!

My second card uses the same background as the first, but instead of the beaver I added the same ‘kind is classy‘ sentiment I featured on my card last Tuesday.  I also use that cute little maple leaf tag!  This sentiment seemed perfect for my Canadian card, since kind is definitely a word that describes most Canadians I know!

We’ve got a several more stops with inspiration for you to visit… please enjoy hopping on through and seeing what our friends have created!   If you get lost along the way, feel free to stop back here and see what you’ve missed- all the links are listed below!
