MFT Camp Create, Day 5 Delightful Die Cutting

It's already the last day of Camp Create with My Favorite Things! *sniff sniff* But not to fear, if you wanted to play but haven't finished, you still have until August 11 to link your projects for prize eligibility. Go to the MFT Blog to link your projects and collect your participation badges for each day you entered. 

Today's project is Delightful Die Cutting. I love dies, as you probably know by now, and I love popping them with foam tape for dimension. Here's my card for Day 5. 

The die cuts and sentiment are by Ellen Hutson, from the new Julie Ebersole release, It's a Jungle. Love the adorable Tiki Idols. The pattern papers are by My Favorite Things from the 6x6 Fun and Frolic paper pack (retired), and the border die (also retired, sorry) is the Stepped Up Chevron. I think it's perfect for this kind of "island" feel, and depending what papers you use is also an excellent choice for a southwest design. My coloring medium of choice, Copic markers. 






Thanks to My Favorite Things for another great Camp Create! These events are always a highlight of my summer and the chance to win prizes is just an added bonus. Happy crafting.

MFT Color Challenge 170 & Outside the Box Birthday Bonanza

Today's card combines two My Favorite Things challenges! For the color challenge I used the Birdie Brown Festive Old Friends stamp set, and for the box card I used my favorite, Level Up dies. The cake is from a stamp set by Ellen Hutson called, surprisingly, Cake, LOL and the sentiment-You're Not a Year Older. 2020 Didn't Count- is from the MFT Festive Old Friends set. Perfect, isn't it!

MFT Camp Create, Day 4 Background Bonanza

Disclaimer: Backgrounds are the hardest for me!

I feel like I wussed out on this one, using a stencil. I'll keep playing and see if I can come up with something more "bonanza" than this. Sigh. Regardless, here is my (first attempt) for Day 4. 

Background stencil by Tim Holtz, ink color Orange Fizz (retired from My Favorite Things). Mountain  (Aloha) and palms (Good Day) by Ellen Hutson. Hut from Tiki Party (retried from My Favorite Things) and sentiment also from Tiki Party, pieced together. 



MFT Camp Create, Day 3 Emboss Resist

Today's assignment is Emboss Resist. I love this technique and used it for the water on today's card. The stamp is a background stamp from My Favorite Things, Scallop Stripe, and the ink color is Blue Breeze. Sentiment by Ellen Hutson from the Good Day stamp set.
Adorable images from the MFT You Keep Me Afloat stamp set. 
White embossing powder is perfect if you want a quiet background.

MFT Camp Create, Day 2 Wonderful Watercolor

For my watercolor image I chose this one from Altenew Pen Sketched Flowers, using my favorite water color medium, Distress Inks. Sentiment by Ellen Hutson, Pure Magic stamp set. I liked it better before I added the blue background. Oh well.

Quick note

Happy hump day, crafty peeps! Just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know I do have a project in progress, but also that I'm going to be out of town for a bit so the blog will be quiet for the next few weeks. I do hope you'll continue to check out other projects I've posted in the meantime. 

This is the sweet stamp set I'm currently working with. Adorableness from the newest My Favorite Things release called You Keep Me Afloat.

See you when I get back from sunny California. Thanks so much for always checking on my stuff. 


Much love and crafty vibes,

Dimension, dimension, dimension. Might as well be my middle name. LOL
