Happy birthday, Canada!

 I haven't been to Canada yet, but I am pretty sure it must be one of the most beautiful places to travel to or live in! I love the forests and wildlife there and I would love to see the Northern Lights one day! 
It so happened that I have just finished reading two novels by German writer A. E. Johann who loved Canada and made it the place of many of his wonderful novels! And I am a huge fan of "Northern Exposure" - a TV series from the 90s! So I just love this month's challenge theme! 
When I think about Canada my first image in my head is the one of deep endless forests surrounding peaceful lakes - all lit by the light of the aurora borealis. I tried to capture that in my tag using (almost) all of my favourites among Kim's amazing and beautiful (!) embossing powders.

Wow, what a celebration! And Emerald Creek is in the middle of it celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canada. I've never been, but driving through the entire country is a huge dream for me. My dad always told me about the times when he flew from Germany to Canada, rented an RV and then travelled the country. He always said that he had his best vacations there.

To join in in September's "Canada the Beautiful" challenge, I created a winter wonderland scene surrounded by the Canadian anthem. I used color sprays to create the winter scene in the background and used a black journaling pen to scribble the words around it. Then I covered the trees in Fractured Ice (my favorite of all embossing powders :) ). Also, I used some acetate and made a snow bank out of it. Because I like the Fractured Ice embossing powder so much, I used it and the Vintage Pram Stamp to add a little interest to the black background. At the end, I popped everything onto a card base and was done. Super simple project with a stunning effect.

If you want to see the video tutorial of how I made the card, jump on over to my blog. Thanks for stopping by!

O Canada! Our home on native land... 




...what better way to celebrate this amazing culturally diverse country then with a celebratory shaker card. With a plethora of Emerald Creek Canadiana stamps, I was going for cross country symbolism, representing many aspects of our Canadian identity. Of course, there had to be touches of Red and White and for a natural connectedness to the whole scene, I used a piece of birch bark (a native species) as the frame.

Happy birthday Canada, you're looking pretty darn good for 150!  For my hubby and myself, the thing that we love most about our beautiful wonderful country is the wilderness, exploring the back roads and camping in the middle of nowhere is our idea of heaven!  He's retiring later this year and we plan to hit the road to explore this amazing place we are lucky enough to call home so I made a start on a little Canada travel diary that I can tuck in my backpack and easily add pages to as we explore the true north strong and free.  I used lots of Emerald Creek's wonderful wildlife stamps along with their embossing powders and charms, hope you can pop by my blog for the how to.

Today we have....

 ME

 on the blog and I am featuring our new ATC Kits releasing September 11th online, and Sept 8 at the Creative Scrapbook Carnival in Sherwood Park.

I started with the 5 chipboard pieces and inked 1 side with colour bursts Crimson, followed by pasting with the Tim Holts Woodgrain Stencil & Wending Vecchi's Studio 90 Texture Paste.


While everything dried I stamped the Native Art Images on the 100lb ATCs from the kit.


Then I embossed the the top of the woodgrain by lightly pressing the ATC into my Emboss It Big Pad and then laid it face down in the glacier white embossing powder, lifted it out of the powder, tapped the back then heated it to melt the powder.


Then I heat embossed the backside using the Peppered Chantilly Embossing Powder as the covering.



Next I grabbed my sets of  Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and highlighted the Native Art with some colour and trimmed the cards before gluing with Beacon 3 in 1.















Last thing I did was glue 2 pieces of floss and 1 piece of twine in the on the ends in a weave pattern for the Jacob's Ladder effect. 


NOTE: DO not over snug the ribbons/threads, this will cause the cards to be stuck in a vertical wall hanging ;) 


I will eventually work up a worksheet for some of you. I still have a couple tries in order to perfect the flip.
