Welcome to our Cross Canada Blog Hop for July.  This month, we’re showcasing the amazing “Happy Everything” stamp set – a special stamp set that is fun to create with but also helps children around the world.  When you purchase this stamp set, $3 will go to Operation Smile, a wonderful organization that helps correct facial deformities in children.

So hop through and see all of the creative things you can do with this Happy stamp set.

·         This is a circular hop so you can start here and go all the way around.
·         If you came from Krista's “Simply Creating” blog, then you are going in the right direction.
·         If you want to travel the hop from East to West, or if you get lost along the way, visit Michelle's "My Creations" blog for the complete blog list. 

HERE'S MY PROJECT: Multicolour stamped card
This card just makes me happy, and I hope it does the same for the person I’m giving it to.  I used Paper Fundamentals and scraps from Chalk It Up and Seaside to create it.  The colours from these two kits also inspired the ink colours I chose.

Here’s how you do a multicolour stamped image.

Start by stamping in your lightest colour.  Cover the entire stamp in ink.

Continue by inking your stamp immediately in the next lightest colour, but only on a portion of the stamp.  Do not stamp on your paper in between inking.

Finish by inking directly in the darkest colour, covering only the bottom edge of your stamp.
Now stamp on your paper.

See?  It’s easy!  The biggest thing to remember is to start with your LIGHTEST colour and finish with your DARKEST colour.

Your next stop on this HAPPY EVERYTHING Blog Hop is Lucy's "Creative Expressions"
