MFT Camp Create

Warning--long post!  MFT Camp Create is always fun & I've made 4 cards.


Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor
The background was made with Color Burst powders Ultramarine Blue & Pthalo Green mixed with water & applied to watercolor paper with a flat brush.  I also splattered both colors & die cut the panel with MFT In & Out Stitched Rounded Squares.  The panel was inlaid into a gray square.  MFT Peaceful Wildflowers were stamped in Versafine Claire Morning Mist, heat embossed in JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle powder & die cut.  The sparkle is beautiful in person.
I arranged the bouquet & added a silver floss bow before attaching it to the panel & stamping the sentiment from the same set.  I'm also entering MFT Birthday ChallengeCountry View ChallengesDRU & SSS Wednesday.

Day 2: Remarkable Resist
I love emboss resist, but wanted to do something a little different.  I white embossed MFT Geometric Grid Background leaving some areas not completely stamped.  I taped the 2 MFT retired Chevron dies together & die cut multiple times until the entire panel was cut.  Didn't realize when I started, by taping the 2 dies together I also got a 3rd very thin chevron with each pass.  I kept all the die cuts in order on a piece of masking paper & then blended Distress Inks as close as I could get to the MFT Color Challenge, attaching them to a kraft panel as I went.
The gold foiled sentiment was done with MFT retired letter dies cut from adhesive backed fun foam & I added gold sequins filled with gold Stickles.  I'm also entering SSS WIW.

Day 3: Spectacular Shakers
Fun to use the MFT circle pouches to make a shaker--no foam tape required.  The card front was blended with Distress Inks victorian velvet, seedless preserves & aged mahogany & the shaker was backed with a black cardstock scrap.  More retired products used for this card:  Dizzy Doily die & On The Line sentiment.  To make it more festive, I heat embossed the doily with JudiKins Diamond Sparkle powder--so beautiful in person.
I found a little unlabeled bag of just the right sequins in my stash & couldn't resist adding some black splatters.  I'm also entering Double D & WAW.

Day 5:  Glitzy Glitter
You knew there'd be a Christmas card eventually, right?!  I had fun using MFT Christmas Tree Window die, a prize I won at The Snippets Playground.  I used DCWV glitter paper--hard to die cut, but very pretty sparkle.
The pink was a scrap--just the right size.  The black frame is MFT Stitched Oval Scallop Frames, the sentiment is from MFT Trim the Tree & I added black splatters & clear gems.  I'm also entering ModSquad.
