Welcome back! Today I have a long post for you, sharing all the cards I made for MFT’s Camp Create Session #1. I hope you stick around until the end, and I’ll try to keep it as brief as possible.
If you are new to Camp Create, let me give you a run down. MFT provides a prompt or craft for each day of the week, Monday – Friday. They also provide a video with tips for each craft.
Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor I love watercolor, so this one was easy! I also had the new Drink Up The Sunshine set on my desk, even easier.
I created the blue panel by washing Gansai Tambi Pearl Cobalt Blue watercolor over a panel of Distress Watercolor cardstock. I cut a smaller panel of MFT Silver Sparkle cardstock and layered the watercolor panel over it. I stamped the little girl and parrot with Hero Arts Intense Black ink and colored them with Copic markers. Once they were die cut, I added them to the watercolor panel with foam tape. I added the panel to a Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cards base with fun foam.
Day 2: Remarkable Resist This one is the most simple of the cards I made.
I stamped the sentiment from Handwritten Holidays on a panel of Neenah with Versamark ink, then heat embossed it with Wow Opaque White embossing powder. Then I blended Candied Apple and Pine Needle Distress Oxide ink using Taylored Expressions Blender Brushes. When I had the ink the way I wanted it, I wiped off the embossing. Then I splattered water on the panel, let it sit, and blotted it off. I trimmed the panel using MFT Mod Rectangles and I sprayed it with shimmer spray. I added the panel to a Neenah card base with fun foam, and added a few iridescent gems.
Day 3: Spectacular Shakers This one should have been easy, considering all of teh shaker elements I have from MFT, but I had to make it difficult for myself.
I always planned to use the border from the Peek-a-boo Window & Edge set, but I hadn’t planned to use the windows. Not until I realized that the mini circle shaker pouches fit in the windows . It’s not exactly what I planned, but I can work with it.
I started by die cutting the edge from a panel of Neenah. Then I created the clouds using the MFT Cloud stencil and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink. Using the window piece, I cut it out from the panel. I saved the circles, to back the shaker windows. I cut the circle pouches and adhered them to the panel with liquid adhesive. While I was waiting for it to dry, I die cut the edge from some Silver Sparkle cardstock. I also created a card base from MFT Sno Cone, stamped the sentiment from MFT Aim for the Clouds with Versamark ink and embossed it with Wow Opaque powder.
I added clear gems to the shaker pouches, then backed it with acetone, to make it easier to line up the circles that were die cut earlier. Then I added the silver sparkle piece, and added it to the card base.
Day 4: Sensational Sliders This one was so tough for me. I’ve never made a slider card, and I don’t have any die pieces to make them. Outside of slider cards, I don’t make interactive cards.
I really wanted to do something different (in regards to sliders, clearly I’m on a cloud streak). I think I did pretty good, considering. My son recommended the stenciled clouds. Unfortunately it was after I had assembled the card.
I started out by trimming down a panel of Neenah. Then I die cut the cloud and frame from MFT Cloud Shaker Window & Frame from more Neenah and some Silver Sparkle cardstock. I inlaid the cloud into the sparkle frame and taped them together. Then I die cut the cloud from the panel.
For the second panel I die cut a rainbow and colored it with Copic markers. I also stenciled clouds with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I lined up the panels and figured out where to put the channel for the slider. Then I added fun foam to the back of the die cut panel. I adhered everything with Scor-Tape, and made sure everything worked. Oh, I stamped the sentiment from MFT Rainbow Greetings with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and heat embossed it with Wow Hologram Sparkle powder. When I showed the card to my son, he recommended adding something to the front as it was pretty plain (just the cloud and sentiment). I carefully added the clouds with the cloud stencil and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink. I finished the card off with a Sno Cone card base.
Day 5: Glitzy Glitter I toyed with the idea of using one of the other cards I created, but couldn’t find anything that said you could use a card more than once. Then again, I really like glitter so…
I grabbed a panel of MFT Kraft cardstock, and added Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste with MFT Snow Flurry stencil. While it was drying, I die cut Joy from Filled With Joy three times from Neenah, as well as the snowflakes from the set. I layered the letters with liquid adhesive, and added them to the stenciled panel once it was dry. I stamped the sub sentiment from Filled With Joy, with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Wow white. I added it over the Joy with foam tape. The card base is Neenah.
Whew, I really appreciate it if you stuck with me this far!I know, it’s a lot. But it was fun working out all of these cards. There will be another session in August, if you are interested in attending. It’s difficult to pass up a chance at a $150 gift card from MFT.
Thanks for stopping by!
