MFT Summer Camp Final Cards

Back from the mostly fogged in Bay to the overly sunny valley!  If we wanted to live in triple digit temps, we'd be in the South--haha!  At least it's only supposed to last 3 days.
PrintI finished up my last 2 MFT Summer Camp cards. First is hubby's anniversary card--for once I'm not making it the day before!  Day 3 is Remarkable Resist--one of my favorite techniques.  
Most of the time I use outline images, but the video inspired me to use this great solid image from a retired MFT set. 
I  blended with Distress Ink chipped sapphire since hubby loves blue. The little hearts are from the same MFT set.  I blended the chipped sapphire on the card front, but kept it lighter. The focal point was backed with fun foam for dimension.  I'm also entering CropStopParu's Card Making Challenge & The Playground.
Pixies Crafty Workshop
PrintThe last challenge is Stunning Shadow Stamping--something I've seen before but never tried.  I have lots of MFT dies, but not many stamp sets.  Wasn't sure it would work, but pulled out MFT Primitive Pumpkins.  
Actually, I really love the result using kraft cardstock.  Guess what ink I used--DI Carved Pumpkin, of course! The little stars & sentiment are from the same set.  I stamped the little swirl in PTI Simply Chartreuse & the sentiment in Versafine Vintage Sepia.  It's been a long time since I did partial dry embossing.  Echo Park's Random Dots provided just the little something extra the card needed.  I'm also entering Stamping Sensations.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  I'm catching up with your blogs as fast as I can.

  9. We spent three days at our son's house in the valley -- too HOT -- and then came home to fog and wind -- too COLD! Either way I don't enjoy being out in it, but I can put more layers on than I can take off in public, tee hee, so I guess I'll take the cool temps. Anyway, Greta, just thought I'd stop by for a visit. Cute cards! Love the simplicity, yet you've done some fabulous creative things with them. I always forget about the shadow stamping, darn it. Thanks for a fun visit today!

  17. That shadow stamping is very cool looking. I like that it doesn't make me feel drunk (out of focus, my usual reaction to shadow stamping, but not this time). Love those deep dark blues for the anniversary card.
