MFT Stamps Camp Create Day 3: Background Bonanza

Hello!  Well, I'm down to the wire and it's looking like Days 4 and 5 of My Favorite Things Camp Create will be a no go for me with the deadline looming in less than 30 minutes.  But I did want to sneak Day 3 in there!  The theme this time is Background Bonanza!

I used the Staggered Paw Prints stencil to create my background with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.  The cute image is from the Lucky Dog stamp set.  She is colored with Copics to look like my brother's new puppy (my new furry niece)! The sentiment is a combination of sentiments from the retired Baby Onsie stamp set and the Sweet Die-namics.  I also used the Stitched Rectangle Frames and Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics as well.

Thanks to MFT Stamps for getting me off my couch and into the craft room!  Even though I wasn't able to participate in all 5 days I had fun with the challenges I did join in!

Thanks for visiting!

MFT Stamps Camp Create Day 2: Magnificent Masking

Hi again!  Whoa, two days in a row!  I'm back with my project for day two of My Favorite Things Stamps Camp Create. The theme is Magnificent Masking.  This is also not a technique I do often so more out of comfort zoning going on!

I masked off a spot in the center of my card stock panel using a circle die cut.  Over it I then stamped one of their background stamps, the retired Star Celebration, in Versamark ink and heat embossed the image using gold embossing powder.  Once that was set I replaced the mask and used Distress Oxide Inks to create a night sky.  I removed the mask, stamped my sentiment, and colored and fussy cut my image from a separate piece of card stock.  Both the image and the sentiment are from the Witch Way Is The Candy? Halloween stamp set.  I die cut the Sweet Hello word die and paired it with my sentiment.  The finishing touch was a stitched cloud border at the top, popped up with foam squares, along with my image, to give the card some dimension.

Too cute to spook, right?  I'm enjoying these challenges! There are three left but I'm running out of time!  We'll see what I can get done before 10pm tonight!

Thanks for visiting!

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!
