MFT Stamps: Camp Create

August 17, 2019

Happy Saturday Friends! Today I am sharing my cards for the MFT Stamps Camp Create Challenges. Rather than blogging every card separately I have combined all of my cards into one post. I will keep the details fairly simple and straight forward. I followed the videos and used the steps outlined in the videos for each technique. Please feel free to ask any questions and I will answer them for you.
I decided to use the challenges as a way to get ahead start on some of my Christmas cards this year. So you will notice that all of my cards are Christmas themed. Is it too early?

Day 1: Inlaid Made Easy

The challenge for Day 1 was Inlaid Made Easy. I die cut all of my elements from my card panel and inlaid everything back together. This is a technique I use a lot...I love how the card appears to have a lot of dimension but actually everything is flat.  

Die: MFT Stamps- Blueprints #27, Sentiment Label Strip, Let It Snowflake Too Die Set, Joy Die-Namics
Paper: MFT Stamps- Cardstock, Candy Land Paper Pack

Day 2: Magnificent Masking

The challenge for Day 2 was Magnificent Masking. I created my mask and did my ink blending.

I love when you peel the masks off!

After I stamped my sentiment in the center of my circle I added clear embossing powder. I love the little extra shine that the embossing powder adds.

Day 3: Background Bonanza

The challenge for Day 3 was Background Bonanza. I created my background by using the Split Chevron Cover-Up Die. I filled it in with paper from the Fresh Squeezed Chevron Paper Pack. 

For my stamping I used the fun snowman from the Frosty Friends stamp set. I colored it with Copic markers and stamped and embossed my sentiment. I followed the Sketch Challenge for my layout.

Day 4: Monochromatic Magic

The challenge for Day 3 was Monochromatic Magic. I started my card by ink blending snow cone ink onto snow cone cardstock with a snowflake stencil to crate my monochromatic background. Next, I used the Filled with Joy stamp and die set to create my Joy sentiment.

Day 5: Awesome Ombre

The Day 5 challenge was Awesome Ombre. I decided to create some Christmas tags for this challenge. I ink blended Distress Oxide Ink in Mowed Lawn for my ombre effect. I die cut cut two tags for each tag that I created. I then die cut the Christmas Tree Window Die from my tag and from my ink blended panel. 

Next, I attached my two tags together and inlaid my ombre pieces back into the tag.

If you stuck with me to the very end...Thank You! I have to admit it was kind of fun to figure out a way to complete the challenges with Christmas products. It also feels great to get ahead start on some Christmas cards.

I hope you are able to play along with the Camp Create Challenges at MFT Stamps this week. 

Enjoy your day,
