Today I’m sharing my creations for the second week of Camp Create. Like last time I seem to have left getting them done quite late… I struggled a little bit with mojo for these, which is probably at least somewhat my own fault. (Some of it though is probably because I’ve been unwell this week.) I don’t really have a lot of MFT products, and whilst I know they’re not a requirement for joining in with the Camp challenges I really wanted to make my projects with the MFT supplies I do have. I think limiting myself in that way caused me to struggle. But I got the cards made in the end and, for the most part, I’m fairly happy with them.
Card 1 – Foiled Rainbow Banners
For Day 1 – Inlaid Made Easy. I started by cutting my MFT banner die (retired) from a white panel which I’d cut to just smaller than my card base. I then cut the same banner from some more card, which I had covered with double sided tape on both sides. I backed my die cut panel with a piece of scrap printer paper and in-laid the tape-covered banner segments. I used my reverse tweezers to remove the backing paper on the top side of all of the banner pieces, then pressed a piece of Rainbow Shattered Glass foil onto the panel. The foil stuck to the exposed adhesive, resulting in a fun foiled rainbow background.
I ran the foiled panel through my die cutting machine with the hooray dienamic, making sure to keep all the negative pieces. I then inlaid a black die cut version of the hooray and fit the negative pieces of the background back in to the negative portions of the word. I adhered the in-laid panel to my card base, added a heat embossed sentiment panel popped up on foam, and finished of with some Ebony Black Nuvo Drops.

For Day 2 – Magnificent Masking. I struggled with this card in particular, as I don’t have any MFT stamps so I wasn’t sure what to do for masking. In the end I decided to create a masked off area of stenciling. I created a mask with a die cut panel using a Lawn Fawn oval die. I then ink blended into the resulting window with Seedless Preserves and Milled Lavender Distress inks over the mini cloud stencil. I removed the framing mask and masked off the oval so that I could add a touch of grey ink blending, using Catherine Pooler Twilight ink, to give a slight cast shadow to the oval.
I completed the card by adding three hearts that I die cut using dies from the MFT Coffee Cup Die-namics and coloured with the Milled Lavender ink. I also stamped my sentiment with the same Milled Lavender. I am still not entirely happy with this card – it feels unfinished. I may come back to it and add some sort of image to the oval area.

For Day 3 – Background Bonanza. I used sea green Brusho to create the background for this card. It was actually the leftover Brusho from a different card attempt. I used some watercolour card and smooshed it into the leftover Brusho that was on my craft mat. I repeated smooshing and drying layers until I had picked up pretty much all of the leftover paint, resulting in an fun background.
I decided to use a blue card base, and glitzed it up with the addition of some blue glitter card. I die cut my Brusho panel with a Kat Scrappiness die, then cut the glitter card to slightly larger than the die cut panel. Before adhering the panels together I used the hooray dienamic to cut a hooray from the glitter card. I then adhered the panels together, added the hooray on top, and finished the card by popping the panel up on my blue card base.

For Day 4 – Monochromatic Magic. I went with browns for my monochrome card. I first used Tea Dye Distress ink to add three ink blended splats to the left hand side of my card base, using the Art Splatters stencil from STAMPlorations. I then die cut my coffee cup element, using the MFT Coffee Cup Die-namics, from some snippets of white. I ink blended the die cuts with the Tea Dye too, though I varied the intensity of the ink blending to give them different looks.
I used the larger heart die from the MFT Coffee Cup Die-namics to dry emboss into the coffee sleeve then used Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to assemble my card. I finished off by adding some brown mirror peel-offs from Love From Lizi around the outside of the panel.

Card 5 – Ombre Foil
Day 5 – Awesome Ombre. This is another of the cards that my plan changed a bit as I went along. I used a stencil from The Crafters’ Workshop on the left hand side of my grey card base. I pounced Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue through it with a sponge and let it dry back to being tacky. It didn’t take long as it was a very thin layer. I then pressed some more of the Rainbow Shattered Glass foil onto it to create a rainbow ombre element. I die cut a white hooray dienamic and adhered that over the card base and finished off with a trio of Nuvo Drops in Sea Breeze.
