My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 5: Glitzy Glitter


For the fifth and final day of the MFT's Camp Create challenge we are to make a project using glitter. 


I chose to make another Christmas card to add to this years batch of Christmas cards. I chose to use stamps from the Sunny Studios Happy Owlidays stamp set. For my glitter element, I used a piece of glitter card stock for the background for my images. I just love how the glitter adds sparkle to the project. 

Thanks for visiting my posts, these challenges where so much fun, as always, and I can't wait for the next session.

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 4: Sensational Sliders




For day four of the MFT's Camp Create challenge is to create a project with a slider element. 



I chose to make mine using the Mama Elephant, Little Agenda Trains for my slider element and Christmas trees, for the buildings I used the Winter Village stamp set from Lawn fawn. I colored all the stamped pieces using Copic markers. I used a stitched hills die for the hills, and a cloud stencil inked with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. To make the slider, I connected my train pieces with small pieces of black card stock, then basically followed the same method mentioned in the video for this challenge to make the slider.

I really had a lot of fun making this slider card, and I'm sure the recipient will enjoy it too.  Now on to the last day for this session.

My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 3: Spectacular Shakers


For the third day of the MFT's Camp Create challenge we are to make a project with a shaker element. At this time of year I usually start making my Christmas projects, so I decided to make a Christmas shaker card for this project.



I thought it would be interesting to create the shaker within the die cut Merry Christmas. I die cut the words out of both white card stock, then out of the plaid background to create the window. I added acetate to the back of the opening in the plaid paper, then added dimensional tape around it, and all around the edges of the paper. I used a white card base, and where I knew the shaker window would be, I added my sequins and microbeads, then attached the plaid piece with the window on top. I then adhered the white die cut Merry Christmas to the top of the window. To finish it off, I added some die cut snowflakes.  I really liked how it turned out so much that I made a couple of them, and I'm sure I will be making more.

Now on to day 4!


MY Favorite Things Camp Create Day 2: Remarcable Resist


For this challenge we had to use the emboss resist technique for our project.


For this card, I embossed these cute little lady bugs and flowers that I had in my stash of stamps using white embossing powder. I inked over them with Distress Oxide inks, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, and Fossilized Amber, then rubbed over it with a paper towel to bring out the embossed  images more. I stamped the word hello from another stamp set I had with Abandoned Coral, sprinkled clear embossing powder over it, heat set it, then inked the edges with spiced marmalade.

Now on to the next challenge...:-)

My Favorite Things Camp Create 2019 Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor




It's summer time, and that means it's time for this years My Favorite Things Camp Create. For the first challenge of this session we are to incorporate water coloring in our creations.



For my card, I first made a galaxy watercolor background, then added stamped and colored images from the Out of This World stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I wanted it to look as if someone where looking out the window of a rocket, so I cut out a circle frame out of mirror paper and added acetate for the glass on the window. I cut out a circle on some grey metallic card stock, and added my window to that. I decided to give it a shaker element by adding a few stars inside. I used one of the sentiments from the same stamp set. 

I had a lot of fun making this card, I just love that little astronaut....he is just too cute. See you at the next challenge.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Color Challenge: Lime Green and Hot Pink

Hello everyone, it's hard to believe it is September already, and I continue to be busy making Christmas cards for this holiday season, which I've probably been doing since July...lol! One great way to get some of them done is joining in on the fun at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.



 This week's challenge is to make cards using the colors lime green and hot pink. I always loved the pink and green color combination, and I was happily up for the challenge.



















I just received my Simply Celebrate Winter stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I colored these little snowmen with Copic markers in green and pink, fussy cut them out ( haven't purchased the matching dies yet ) and attached them to a piece of lime green card stock that I stamped with the sentiment that is included in the set, and embossed with a dot embossing folder that I had on hand. I added a pink mat, and adhered that to a piece of white card stock that I stamped with some snow clusters in pink and green to continue with the green and pink theme. I added strips of the same green card stock and then adhered it all to a white card base. I wanted to add a little more to it, so I added some die cut snowflakes that I had in my extra die cuts stash and added rhinestones to the middles.

I had so much fun making this card, and was so pleased with how it came out, that I'm sure I'll be making more of them.

My Favorite Things Summer School: Ombre

This is the last day of this MFT Summer school for this session, and the assignment this time is to create something using the ombre techneque.




















I started my card by heat embossing images using white embossing powder and some stamps that I had in my stash, then created the ombre effect using three different Distress Oxide colors, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Candied Apple.  I didn't add a sentiment to it because I'm not sure what I want to use it for yet. I know my techneque needs a little more practice, and it all looks a little smoother in person, without as much blotchiness, but I like the way it turned out, and that is what these challenges are all about, to learn a little something.

I hope you enjoyed checking out my creations for this challenge as much as I enjoyed creating them. I'll see you when I post my next project.
