MFT Camp Create day 5: Glitzy Glitter

For the final challenge of the MFT Camp Create the theme is Glitzy Glitter.

For this card, I  used a butterfly from the Spellbinder's die set Les Papillions, and applied glitter using the glitter techneque that was shown in the video for this challenge. I used ovals from the MFT In and Out Stitched Oval die set, and made a sentiment strip from the MFT Stitched Sentiment Strips die set, and added a sentiment from a stamp I had in my stash. I sure love how this butterfly turned out, it is so pretty and sparkly, I wish you could see it in real life.

I really had a lot of fun with this Camp Create session and I sure hope they have another one before the end of the summer.

MFT Camp Create: Bonfire


For an extra bonus challenge, MFT added a bonfire challenge to day 4 of the Camp Create challenges. The challenge for this one is Divine Cry Embossing.

For my embossed background piece I used DMC Shimmer card stock, and the Ogee embossing folder from The Paper Studio. For my oval, I layered 3 different ovals from the MFT In and Out Stitched Ovals, and using the techneque featured on the video for this challenge I made my oval background piece. The balloons are from the MFT Birthday Balloons die set, and where cut out of glitter paper. The gifts where from the MFT Beary Special Birthday stamp set, The sentiment strip was from the MFT Stitched Sentiment Strips die set, and the sentiment was also from the Beary Special Birthday stamp set.

Now it's off to my final entry for the final day of this challenge.

MFT Camp Create: Sensational Sliders

Today's challenge is to make a slider card, and here is the card that I made for this challenge.

To make my card I basically followed the directions featured in the video for this challenge, I did not have the die they used, so I had to use a craft knife. For the trees I used the MFT Trees in the Forest die, and for the rest of the elements I used some other various dies and punches that I had in my stash. This card was a little challenging for me because I had to use a craft knife to cut the sliding panel out, and the layers where kind of thick, and I made a bit of a mess of the bottom cut on my first try, so I had to remake my bottom hill, and then I was successful with my cutting.

I hope you enjoy my slider card, and I will see you on the next challenge.

Camp Create: Remarkable Resist

Today's challenge for MFT's Camp Create is Remarkable Resist, and here is my entry for this challenge.

For the embossed resist background that I made I used the MFT's Diamonds and Dots Border stamp set, using heat embossing with white embossing powder for the diamond back ground, then inked it with blue and purple ink using an inking tool. For my images, I used the bear with the balloon and gift stamps from the MFT's Beary Special Birthday stamp set. I used my Scor-Pal for the scored lines on the right side edge of my card.

Join me next time when I post my creation for the next challenge.

MFT Camp Create : Wonderful Watercolor

The folks at My Favorite Things are doing the Camp Create challenge again this summer, and of course I just had to join in. Today's challenge is to make something using watercolor. Here is the card that I made for the challenge.

I made a watercolor background using some shimmery watercolors that I have, and used that for my sky background that I placed my clouds, made from the End Of The Rainbow Die-namics die set from MFT, and the dragons and sentiment from the MFT Magical Dragons stamp set. You can't see it in the picture, but I added some sparkle on the pink parts of the momma dragon and some of the parts of the baby dragon with my Wink Of Stella clear brush marker, and little dabs of Stickles for the stars in the sky.

See you tomorrow when I enter my project for Tuesday's challenge.

Christmas Projects 2016

Merry Christmas everyone! I know, Christmas was yesterday, but as usual, I'm a bit! I made quite a few projects the year, unfortunately I failed to take very many pictures, but I did manage to take a few before sending them on their merry way. Here are the ones that I managed to get pictures of this year.

First up is a cross stitch project that I made for my Secret Santa at work this year, who was one of the custodians, and he is very much into the Rolling Stones. Incidentally he was my SS last year as well, and I was able to find him a key fob on Etsy with the RS logo, and such, on it. However, this year I wasn't able to find anything that really grabbed me, until I ran across this pattern of the RS logo for cross stitching while perusing Pinterest. I hunted around my stash for just the right color red, and set out on my adventure of trying to get it done in just a few days. Things where going great, until I reached the last few stitches of red, and ran out of thread. I didn't know what I was going to do, so I thought about who around my neighborhood might have embroidery thread, and I immediately thought of my next door neighbor, who is into crafts as well. I asked her if she had that same color, and sure enough, she had it....I was saved! I was able to finish the project and was able to give it to him on the day we where to reveal ourselves, and he loved it. He showed me a picture the next day of it hanging over his music room door. I thought that was so cool, and was very glad he liked it.

Here is the link to the pattern if anyone is interested in making one of these for themselves,

Next up is a little Christmas tree that I had made from another idea I got off a site I found on Pinterest. I also gave this to my SS, the day before I gave him the cross stitching. He said he had an idea it was me, because it looked like something someone had made, I told him I'm not the only crafty person on!

Here is the link to this project as well, I made another one that as well as the bells, I added some ornament buttons to it and gave it to my sister, but sadly, I forgot to take a picture of it, but if she still has it out the next time I visit I'll take a pic and post it at a later day.

Lastly, here are a couple of  quilted ornaments that I made from directions I found, again, on Pinterest. These I made for a couple of my classroom co-workers. I was really pleased at how they turned out, and I will definitely be making more of these in the future.

Here is the link to the directions on these ornaments for anyone interested in checking out how to make them,

Gotta love Pinterest for some fabulous ideas, I don't know how many times I've turned to it when in need for an idea on many different projects that I've done.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the project that I've made this year, and I would love to hear what you think about them...:-)
