Welcome to my blog! Today I'm participating in a Blog Hop featuring our amazing Host Reward Stamp Set.  I've chosen to highlight the Tranquil Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I love the two-step images that allow you to build up the final image by layering stamps on top of each other.

I used the Melon Mambo ink on my flowers.  The first image is stamped off first before stamping on the oval Stitched Shape Shimmery White piece.  The second image is stamped full strength on top of the first one.  I repeated the same technique with the Lupins.

It's so easy to build up the images because you can see through the photopolymer stamps for perfect placement!  The sentiment is from Fabulous Flamingo.  I wanted to go for a very country look so used some of the patterned paper from the Wood Textures Designers Series Paper Stack. The patterns are fabulous!

The patterns vary from an ombre look (like the piece in my card) to paint chip and crackle paint look.  I love this pack of patterns so much and they coordinate with Berry Burst, Old Olive, Crush Curry and Dapper Denim cardstock and inks.

Card Swap Sunday! Happy Canada Day!

It's Card Swap Sunday the day I share a card I've created for a swap or that I've received in a swap. Today I'm sharing an awesome card from my friend Diane Evans that celebrates the 150th Birthday of Canada using the Color Theory Suite of products.

Color Theory Suite Canada Day 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca
Everyone is proud of their own country I think and traditionally Canadians have been a modest group but lately there has been a surge in patrionism (for which we apologize) which I think is awesome.  I hope that we continue to be a country of tolerance and welcoming to others. 

On July 1st we celebrate 150 years of being a nation.  Some of our accomplishments over the years include:

Sports:
Lacrosse
Ice Hockey
Basketball

Medicine/Science
Insulin
Pacemaker
Sonar
Canadarm for the Space Shuttle
Java Language for computers

Daily Life Improvements:
Snowblower
Snowmobile
Electric Wheelchair
Blackberry
Telephone (by a Scot but he lived in Ontario at the time)
IMax Theatre
Egg Carton
Peanut Butter (who knew!)

Famous Canadians (to the world and to other Canadians)
Commander Chris Hatfield - astronaut
Tommy Douglas - politician and "father" of the Canadian one payer medical system (and grandfather to Kiefer Sutherland who is also Canadian)
Lester B Pearson - Prime Minister, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, prominent founder of the United Nations and NATO
Michael J Fox - actor and activist for Parkinson's Disease
David Suzuki - environmentalist
Margaret Atwood - author
Terry Fox - inspiration for the Terry Fox Runs around the world to raise money for cancer research

There are lots more but as a Canadian I don't want to brag too much. LOL

One of the most iconic images of Canada is the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in their Red Serge dress uniforms.  I'm so proud of our son, Ian, who has just been accepted into the RCMP Police Academy and leaves in a few weeks for 6 months of training. So proud of my kids in following their passions and dreams and working hard to reach their goals.  One in the Video Game Art industry and one as a police officer.

Okay...back to this patriotic card!

Diane used the emboss resist technique on her card. She embossed the leaves from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in clear embossing powder and then sponged the Real Red ink on top so that it magically appeared! I love how the stamp set coordinates so beautiful with the Seasonal Layers Framelits dies like in this leaf on Diane's card.

The Color Theory Suite is the featured products in my June Free Card Program.
