MFT Camp Create - Glitzy Glitter

I had some time to play along with MFT Camp Create today.  It's a summer camp for stampers and has 5 days of challenges!  It started on Monday so I am late, but it looked like so much fun that I'm going to try to complete the challenges before the deadline on June 23rd.

The first challenge is Glitzy Glitter.  I just got the Beautiful Girl stamp set from MFT and thought that would be a great image to add glitter to, so I used the sweet little girl to make some cards.  Here is the first card, I used an Action Wobble so she really cute!  

The scalloped circle behind her is Stitched Mini-Scallop Circle STAX from MFT.  I wanted a green edge so I die cut one in purple and one in green and then trimmed along the stitch line of the green one and glued it on!  I really like how this looks!  I also tried some really simple no-line coloring on this card.  I used it to make the flowery background.  It looks like patterned paper, doesn't it? The last layer was stamped with Versamark and the Simply Circles background stamp.  Here's a close-up...

Glitter is so difficult to photograph, but I got lucky with this shot.  Ohhh, ahhh...look at that glitz!!

I always color two of an image when I'm making a card.  That way, if I mess up on the first one, I can correct my mistakes on the second one and still end up with something that I can use.  This time I was lucky and they both were usable! is the 2nd card.  I used MFT's new Blueprints 29 for this it...a lot!  

I used a piece of MFT's Sweet Sunshine 6x6 Paper Pack as a background.  It coordinated perfectly with my color scheme!  I wasn't sure about the curly-cues on the top of her head.  On the first card I colored them like flower vines but on this one, I colored them like curls of her hair...I like them both!  Here's the close-up view...

While trying to come up with a way to show how sparkly the glitter looks, I took this photo.  It didn't really catch the glitter like I wanted it to, but I liked it so much that I needed to include it.  

I know time is short, but I hope my cards made you think about going to MFT's summer camp!  They've come up with some fun ideas...and the videos are great!  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a good weekend :)

  1. Fantastic. I can imagine her dancing and bouncing around with the wobble attached behind her.
