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.
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.

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.
I know I'm running a little late on this one, but Wednesday's challenge is one of my favorite card techniques, shaker cards. Here is the card that I made for this challenge.
I really love making shaker cards, and I loved making this one. See you for the next challenge!

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.

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.
