Shopping Our Stash #310 - Flag Day

Greetings friends! 

Thanks for stopping by today to check out the latest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH

With both Canada Day and Independence Day happening this week, we want you to see the colours (or colors) of your flag!!

I made a red and white Canadiana inspired tag.

Some of my very best memories as a kid were camping in Algonquin Park with my family every summer.

I might have had my first kiss right there at Rock Lake!!

My dad used to take us "moose hunting" at dusk, which really meant we were driving around looking for wildlife...we saw lots of beavers, lots of moose and the occasional bear!

I owe my super amazing campfire skills to my dad and what we call "the Whiteman school of fire building."

I didn't have any twine to  match my tag, so I pulled some white twine through the Candied Apple ink pad a few times and voila, matchy matchy!

Shite I used to make this tag:

  • Kraft tag (Recollections)
  • Candied Apple distress ink (Tim Holtz)
  • Whip Cream ink (Fun Stampers Journey)
  • Water spritzer (SU)
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Fishtail / Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)
  • Canada themed stamps (Studio G)
  • Maple leaf punch (Martha Stewart)
  • White twine
As always we'd love for you to join the crew and play along.

You can find all the details for the challenge on the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG

While you are there, please share some loves with the rest of the crew!
