MFT Stamps Camp Create Day 1: Inlaid Made Easy

Hi all!  I have been MIA again, I know.  I haven't been doing much in the way of crafting.  My mojo seems to have taken the Summer off! (Wish I could have!  Lol)  With my favorite holiday on the horizon and school starting next week I thought it might be a good time to get back into the swing of things.

My Favorite Things Stamps is hosting the second session of their version of summer camp!  It's called Camp Create and each of the 5 days has a different fun technique or theme.  Day 1 is Inlaid Made Easy.  I had never considered using a die this way, but it was fun to create outside of my comfort zone!

I needed a wedding card so I decided to work with the retired Abstract Heart die.  I die cut the heart 3 times.  The first from a sheet of white card stock, the second from a piece of navy card stock, and finally from silver glitter card stock.  This last one required multiple passes through my Gemini Jr and then I still had to use a craft blade to get some of the pieces out.  Below is a photo of my work in process as well as my finished card.

The sentiment, from the YAY for You stamp set, was heat embossed and die cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips.

The deadline for the challenges is tomorrow so I'm not sure if I will get the remaining four finished in time, but this was fun none-the-less and a good push towards spending some quality time in my craft room again!

Thanks for stopping by!
