Camp Create is an awesome week long learning & doing event over at My Favorite Things

~ Here is the daily schedule ~

These are the badges I am hoping to earn. I have 3 cards to show you today and I will post the badge I earn for linking up a card in that category! Long post – sorry!

The videos and instruction on all of these topics has been so inspiring to me and I am excited to create and participate!

Day 1 – GLITZY GLITTER

~Sweet As Can Bee Card ~

sweetascanbeeadj

I love this cute bee girl that is sadly a retired stamp set from MFT – it is a big favorite with me, so I hope it is ok that I used her for this card. I stamped her in Versafine black ink on watercolor paper, embossed with clear embossing powder and used my “Ziggy“s to color her in. How I added my Doodlebug glitter: I put down two strips of crafty power tape from Scrapbook Adhesives and poured my Beetle Black glitter onto them and rubbed my finger over it to press it in to the tape. For the yellow glitter-y triangles I used an SU! set called Little Shapes and stamped them with YoYo Yellow craft (pigment) ink and then put the Bumblebee glitter on while still wet – It did not stick horribly well but there is some shimmer there! Some Doodlebug Sequins added another touch of glitz and my card is done!

~ Hi, Honey card ~

hihoneyadj

This card was made up of scrap papers – I used MFT‘s BluePrints # 1 to do all the layers for my card. My main image (yes, I am using the adorable Bee girl again) was stamped on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and then I water colored her using my “Ziggy“s and a wet paintbrush.

Such a fun image to color – I love it.

DAY 4 – DELIGHTFUL DIE-CUTTING

~ You’re Brilliant card ~

brilliantadj

My lightbulb card was die cut using Lightbulb Die-namics from MFT.  Scrap paper was used for all pieces, including the vellum and shiny silver paper, except for the cool chevron paper – that was part of a prize from MFT. One of their paper pads – I die cut the panel using Vertical Stitched Rectangles. Sentiment (from this set) was stamped on it with Versamark Ink and embossed with white powder. For the rays I used two post-it notes and placed them and then sponged Daffodil Delight ink in between where I placed the papers. After all the rays were sponged I added Wink of Stella to each of the rays and the vellum layer of the lightbulb.

Morning Is NOT my Friend!

So, this morning I woke up early and could not go back to sleep.

I decided to go in my craft room and play!

~ Morning is NOT my Friend card ~

morningnotfriendadj

This fun and simple card started with a top folding Only Orange (SU!) card base. To that I added some scraps that were cut with Paper Smooches Scalloped Frames – I inlaid the middle back in the frame. I stamped the Coffee Loving girl from the Moka Sunshine set from Taylored Expressions onto watercolor paper. I stamped in black Versafine ink and embossed with clear powder. Of course, I colored her in with my “Ziggy“s, fussy cut her out and put her on my card with foam squares. A speech bubble was added and two of the sentiments from Moka Sunshine were added. One was embossed with white embossing powder. A few random enamel dots and jewels spiced it up!

~This Bright, Sunshine-y card is headed to these link-ups~

Party Animal

Popping back in with another card I made during my time in my craft room.

~ Party Animal Card ~

partyanimaladj

For this card I used a light blue plaid paper scrap that I die cut with Lawn Fawn‘s Stitched Rectangles. I then stamped using a Kaleidacolor Rainbow pad – Pastel to stamp the stars onto the blue background. Stamped the balloon animal on card stock and then fussy cut around him. Die cut a vellum banner with an SU! die and added the message to it. I put adhesive on the back of the banner behind the sentiment. Added the animal with some foam squares – I trimmed them into smaller pieces to fit on my image. The stamp set I used is by Avery Elle and is called Party Animal.

~My card is off to PARTY in these challenges~

Sailing in with Birthday Wishes

Sailing in  and Rounding out my inky trio with another card!

~From All of Us~

sailboatadj

Oh, this card was fun – I got so inky!! My fingers are all blue. I cut out two ovals of the same size from MFT and then I tore one of them into wave like pieces – three of them. I sponged Brilliant Blue ink onto them and layered them on my second white oval and trimmed off any edges with my scissors. I sponged the cloudy background using some cloud die cuts as masks. The sailboat is from a forever ago Stampin’ Up set called Seasonal Solids. I used markers to color on the stamp and then I cut the boat out and put it in the waves with foam tape! The red card was embossed using a Tim Holtz embossing folder called Swirls. And the blue strip was form my scrap box. Simple message at the bottom – From all of us. Then inside it says – Happy Birthday!

~This card is going to SAIL into these challenges~

~Fetching You a Happy Birthday~

dogfetchadj

To make this card I used the Fetching Friendship set from Newton’s Nook to stamp that lovable black lab. scraps were used to cut the pinked circle and the torn rectangle. I stamped the tennis ball on the green paper. I colored in with my “Ziggy”s.  After assembling all the pieces I decided to jazz it up with some Double Click Skittles and some wood veneer arrows that I inked up so they were matching the colors on the card.
