Scrap'N Stamp Blog Hop ~ Happy Canada Day

Now, on to the fun part! I have made four cards for today's hop, which shows how much fun you can have with this set.

First up is "eh?" I have used images from the stamp set, along with the main image of the Moose, and pieces from the Cardstock Die Cuts. I stamped the Moose using Ranger Archival ink in Coffee, and water coloured using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours.  I stamped the sentiments and maple leaves using Carnation Red Archival Ink. The frame is attached using foam tape as is the Moose. The eh" is die cut from the white cardstock underneath, which allowed the red underneath to show through the negative. I reattached the eh? using foam dots.

Next up is "you betcha!" For my background I used a piece of the designer paper from the collection, along with an embossed wood panel. I stamped the Beaver using the Coffee ink and painted with the Gansai Tambi watercolours, then attached him with foam dots. To finish up this card I added the stamped sentiment, along with pieces from the Cardstock Die Cuts. 
For this next card I used pieces that were included with the Cardstock Die Cuts, along with a stamped Maple Leaf to make this Clean and Simple card. The Canada Day circle is attached on foam dots to give the card dimension. 
And for my final card today I used another of the pieces that was included in the Cardstock Die Cuts, which is matted in the red and attached using foam tape. I stamped and die cut a bunch of the maple leaves and attached grouped together, with a few attached on foam dots. I liked the simplicity of this and felt the date on the map was enough.  
I hope you have enjoyed these cards and would like to thank you for joining us today. Next up on the hop is Laurie Case. Following is a list of those participating in today's hop.

I love them all! The 'proud Canadian' banner is awesome, and I don't know whether I like the 'eh?' or 'you betcha' the best! That map of Canada with the scattered maple leaves is awesome.
