Welcome back! Grab something fun to drink and get comfortable, I’ve got another long post for you. This one features the cards I made for MFT’s Camp Create 2019, Session 2. This session was a bit trickier for me then the first session.
The first day of camp, the theme is Inlaid Made Easy
Here is my card:
I started out by stamping the images from MFT Scribble Roses on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock using Altenew inks (Blush, Rouge, Sunray, Snapdragon, Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Lime and Fresh Leaf). Then I use the Big Hugs die to cut out the sentiment. I added the sentiment back into the card and used micropore tape to hold it in place.
I stamped a sentiment from MFT’s From the heart on a scrap of Neenah die cut with the strip from Vertical Hearts, then added it with foam tape. I brushed some clear Wink of Stella over the die cut sentiment, and added a MFT Lemon Chiffon card base.
The next day, we all got to practice Magnificent Masking!
My masking card:
For this card, I created a mask with a circle in the center. Using the mask, I add Moonstone Nuvo Glitter Paste to a Kraft panel. While I was waiting for the panel to dry, I die cut the snowman and letters from Filled With Joy from Lawn Fawn’s Pixie Dust cardstock. I die cut the hat from the flocked cardstock included in the card kit from last year. I also cut out the eyes and mouth from the same cardstock. The nose is Neenah, colored with Copic markers.
When the panel was dry, I realized the panel was too plain, even when I added the die cuts. So, I blended some Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink around the glitter paste.
I stamped the sentiment from Filled with Joy with Versamark ink and embossed it with Wow Opaque White Detail embossing powder. Then, I added the die cuts, and some Lucy’s Cards Sparkling Bridal gems. The card base is Neenah.
Day three, Background Bonanza!
I stamped MFT Christmas Background on to some Distress Watercolor cardstock with Versamark ink, and embossed it with Wow Opaque Detail White embossing powder. Then, I shook some Scarlet Brusho Crystals, and sprayed it with water. I set the panel aside, and started to work on the rest of the card.
I die cut the house from MFT’s Scenic Snow Globe from MFT Cranberry cardstock, and the other piece from Neenah cardstock (except for the trees). I glued the pieces together, and layered them together to create the scene. Next, I cut a band from vellum, too anchor the house. I stamped a sentiment from MFT Secret Santa on the vellum with Versamark ink, and embossed it with more white powder.
When the watercolor panel was dry, I wrapped the vellum around it, and added the house with Scor-Tape. I added some foam tape behind the house, then adhered the other side of the vellum. The card base is MFT Wild Cherry. Oh, and I added Glossy Accents to the house windows.
On to day four, Monochromatic Magic.
Aren’t those monkeys from Picture Perfect adorable? So cute! I stamped them with Gina K Amalgam ink, and colored them with Copic markers.
I die cut the Polaroid Shaker Frame from Kraft cardstock, and layered it over the monkeys. Then I made a card base from more Kraft cardstock and added some Delicata Golden Glitz ink using the Geometric Stars stencil. I added a sentiment from Picture Perfect to the bottom of the polaroid frame with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I added the frame to my card base with fun foam and Scor-Tape.
Last, but not least, Awesome Ombre!
This one is a little wild, so brace yourselves! I was inspired by a notebook cover I saw somewhere.
I started out by blending Altenew’s Coral Berry ink on a panel of Neenah. Using MFT’s Card Sized Confetti stencil, I blended Altenew’s Crimson ink. Then, I added Gina K’s Gold Glitz glitter gel. Then I had to figure out what to do with the rest (this happens a lot lol).
I decided to use MFT’s Happy Birthday Script. I tried die cutting it from white cardstock, but felt it was too plain. I had a panel that I had started for this card and messed up. There was enough of the panel left to use for the sentiment. Unfortunately, it disappeared into the background. So, I added the white version as a shadow. I adhered two more white die cuts to give it dimension, and added it to the blended panel with liquid adhesive. The card base is more Neenah.
That last card is so bright, a bit out of my comfort zone. It matches the inspirational image pretty closely.
Did you get a chance to participate in this session? It’s fun to have the prompts for inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by!
