I live close to the United States - Canadian border and having this stamp set to help celebrate Canada Day is perfect! I love it! I stamped out the Sophie Pup holding her Canadian flag with Versafine Black Onyx ink in my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform onto cardstock I had treated with my Anti Static Bag. I sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I colored the image using Copic markers. I die cut the image with the Artist Trading Card Hello die set and my Tonic Tangerine machine. Then, I plopped a smear of Raspberry Rhodolite glimmer paste onto my Easy Clean Craft Mat, and then brushed the Raspberry Rhodolite glimmer paste onto the red parts of the Canadian flag. This glimmer paste was the perfect shade and sparkle for the Canadian flag!
I also stamped out the Happy Canada Day! sentiment. I treated some black cardstock with my Anti Static Bag, then stamped out the sentiment with Versamark ink. I sprinkled on White Detail embossing powder and heat set it. I trimmed the cardstock and cut it into a fishtail banner.
To build the card, I masked over the stamped image, and then ink blended the ground using Lime Burst from the Tropical Fruits Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads set. I also used the Polar Ice from the Sea Siren Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads set for the sky. I removed the mask after doing the background ink blending. I also stamped the image with a red ink onto white cardstock to create a patterned image. I die cut the stamped cardstock with the Tonic Mixed Edge Rectangle Layering Basics Die Set die. I matted the layers with black cardstock and layered them onto a card base. I rolled some Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen onto the edge of the black mat, and sprinkled on some Collegiate Garnet glitter to complete the card.
