So my friend said she was using more of her paper packs...

...and I decided to do the same!

The paper pack is Colorbok from Ollie's!
It was great inspiration for the card.
The base card is brown textured card stock with a layer of the "cake" paper from the pack.
On cream card stock I stamped the bunny and verse from Stampingbella's "make a wish Hoppy poppy" using StazOn timber brown ink.
I colored the image with Prisma color pencils and trimmed it out in a flag form with a layer of brown textured card stock that I trimmed as well before gluing it to the front of the card.

What makes you happy?

The base card is black card stock.
The main piece is white card stock which I taped a strip from a DCWV Animal Pad to the bottom.
I stamped the dog from Paper Smooches "vhummy chums" set and the verse from Paper Smooches "Christmas Sampler" set using StazOn jet black ink.
I colored the tongue with Distress marker and taped it to the front of the card.

Nothing more personal than reaching out to a friend...

Sometimes I forget to reach out to my friends when life gets crazy.
Sometimes I like being alone, as two friends who are the same way have pointed out to me this week.
But one thing I hope I never do is ignore my friends.
So this card and more that I will make in the future are to let them know that just because I don't call or text it doesn't mean they aren't in my thoughts and prayers.

This card is for a friend who is having a struggle in her life and loves flowers as well as the colors purple and green.

The card is kraft card stock.
I stamped the flowers from Unity Stamp Co.'s "insightful meadows" with my Distress seedless preserves and peeled paint markers.
The white dots were put on with the Distress picket fence marker.
I finished the card by stamping the verse from Unity Stamp Co.'s "steps of courage" set using my Distress seedless preserves ink pad.

Last day at camp...

...but what a wonderful week and six new techniques to try!

I followed the video fairly closely however...
I used black glitter for the lettering and because I used kraft card stock for the base card I wasn't thrilled with the result.
So as I put the green glitter glue into my rust sequins I decided to outline the lettering with the glue...and I like the softened effect.
The tree die is from MFT Die-namics "Tree-mendous" and the "thanks" is a freebie from MFT with my last order!!!

I hope everyone enjoys my interpretations of Camp Create.
Please follow the links for and try your own cards!

One more session after this and camp will be over...

I just love all the inspiration these videos provide.
Especially as I can pull them up at my convenience!


This one has so many interpretations...

I chose to use MFT Die-namics "Large Fancy Flourish" on a single layer card, just the bottom.
This made me think of snails in the garden and that lead to the green and blue ink.
The snails and "hello" came from the "You Gnome Me" MFT set and I used StazOn jet black ink.
I used my Distress twisted citron and tumbled glass inks for the sponging as well as the same colors in my Distress markers to color the snails.
I cut them out and added them to the card front!
