The nice thing about Crop Chocolate is that rubber stampers (me) and card makers (me) get along great with all the die hard scrapbookers (not me). We play nice, share when items are limited, giggle (or not) at middle school boy potty humor and get along like a big happy family. If you would like to join us click here.
Since this is a Crop Chocolate (CC) Blog Hop (though "unofficial") I thought I would challenge myself to make a card using mostly supplies I have purchased or could have purchased from CC.
Here is a list of the supplies in that category:
Making Memories Kids Large Sam Stripe (from Hot Chocolate) - card base cardstock
Making Memories Smooth Poppy (from Hot Chocolate)- stars & words cardstock
Making Memories Slice & Slice Hands Free Kit (CC may have the best prices you'll ever see)
Making Memories Slice Design Card Basics 1 - stars and enjoy (oops...I forgot to dot my "j")
Making Memories Slice Design Card Calendar - 4th of July
Making Memories Slice Design Card Paws and Claws - best
Sassafras Lass "This way" stamp set-pointing finger stamp
Basic Grey Clear Stamps Alpha Series - Happy New Year set - fireworks stamp
Supplies that came from my stash but not available on Crop Chocolate:
Stamp Pad Co. - Uncle Sam pointing stamp (I think this image bears a resemblance to the Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain and since you don't need "No Reservations" to drop into my blog I guess that is appropriate!)
Copic Markers for coloring stamped images (I am "Copic Certified as of June 18th...WooHoo!)
Pioneer Embellishment Glue stick with the red cap (for sticking down everything...great item!)
ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink in Warm Red for stamping fireworks
Viva Las Vegas Chinese New Year's Embossing Powder for fireworks
Sparkle n' Sprinkle Sparkling Snow Glitter applied over Xyron adhesive on "4th of July shadow" which was made by making an identical 4th of July image to the first and slightly offsetting the glittery one underneath when I glued them down on the card.

And BTW, Happy Canada Day to all you CC and non-CC Canadians who are visiting today. I'll wave a maple leaf in your honor!
