MFT Stamps Camp Create - Divine Dry Embossing & Stunning Shadow Stamping

Hello and Happy Wednesday
I am so happy I got some time to create
projects for the final 2 days of the
My Favorite Things Camp Create.
Here is the project that I created for Divine Dry Embossing.
Now I didn't quite create the same type of project in the video,
I had my project all planned out and then couldn't find my embossing pad!!
So I decided to use an embossing folder along with a diffuser, which worked great.
I hope this still counts for the Dry Embossing project!!
I also used the Oval Shadows Die-Namics 
Here is the badge I earned
The final day and final project was Stunning Shadow Stamping
For this card I started with a piece of Razzle Berry Cardstock
I used the Scribble Roses to Stamp my flowers.
for my sentiment,  I made this card for a friend at work
who is moving to a different division for a new job.

I am so sorry that Camp is over.  I had such fun learning
and creating with new techniques,  Can't wait for next year!!

Thanks for Stopping By !!

Fun in the Sun

Hello and Happy Tuesday!!

Today I will be sharing another card for
My Favorite Things Camp Create.
Today's Project will be Magnificent Masking!
For the masking technique,
I created a background using the Stitched Numbers Die-namics.
My granddaughter will be turning 9 later this month
and she is having a Beach Party Theme.
I cut only the 9 out of Post It paper to create the mask.
I applied the masks on my paper and then inked up 
with Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon
Next I used the Fun in the Sun Stamp Set.
She is mostly colored with Distress Ink,
but I did use Zig Clean Color Markers for her skin and hair.
I used Blueprints 13 to die cut the masked piece
and the sentiment banner, and finished off my card with 
some Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins.
I have one more project to complete for Camp Create!!

Panda Party

Hello again to all my crafty friends!!
Today I am sharing some projects
I made for my granddaughter's 13th birthday party.
Now her party was back in April and I realized
I never shared the projects I made.
This post will be picture heavy!!

First, lets start off with the invites I made
for the party.  This cute file is from My Scrap Chick
Next is the birthday banner, look closely, the banner
pieces are little panda heads using the same file! 
 Next up is the table decorations, and sorry to say
but I do not remember where this panda file is from,
I believe the flowers are a Miss Kate's Cuttables.
I used the same sweet panda for the birthday card
The adorable face is from Peachy Keens Teddy Bear Faces
I even used the same panda file to decorate the gift bag!!
This was a huge bag, I cut the panda as big as would fit
on a 12x12 mat.
Now lastly, I just have to share the cake pops
that my sons girlfriend made for the party.
They were just too cute!!
Stayed tuned for more projects!
Thanks for stopping by :)

Kathy Salido ~ Guest Designer

Hello all you Jaded Blossom Fans!!
It has been such a blast being a guest designer for 
Jaded Blossom this month.  I am so sad that it has 
come to an end.  Today I am sharing my final project.

So for my final project, I wanted to use
the Jaded Blossom Roses Stamp.
I have been wanting to try watercoloring, 
 so I tried coloring up a couple of these beautiful Roses
I stamped the roses and leaves
onto watercolor cardstock using Versamark.
I used sparkle embossing powder and my heat gun.
Then I colored them in using  my
Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and a waterbrush.
As I was coloring the roses in, I thought, what Sentiment
will I use??  Well a friend from church recently lost
her son, so I thought I would make her a sympathy card
I heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder.
I finished my card with a little twine and some sequins.
I also used Card Mat Dies for the background piece
and sentiment label.

I have really enjoyed reading all your wonderful
comments and want to thank Candace and Michelle
for having me as a guest designer!!

Hello and Happy Friday!
It is time for a new PDE Linky Party and
as always the Theme is ANYTHING GOES!!
Today I am sharing a couple of cards
I made for my Grandkids.
They were recently in their school play.
This year they did Peter Pan,
my grandson was Hook and my granddaughter 
was one of the pirates.
For both cards I used SVG files from PPBN Designs.
For the Hook card, I used MFT Stamps Blueprints 15 dies
for all the elements on my card.  I used Peachy Keens
Happy New Year Face Stamps
For the inside sentiment on  both cards,
I used My Favorite Things Count the Stars
For this card, I used MFT Stamps Blueprints 24 dies
For this cutie , I used Peachy Keens Sweet and Innocent Faces
The play was a huge success and both kids did a fabulous job!!

Last night was their cast party, and my daughter in law was in charge
of decorations, so I whipped up these images for her for the 
centerpieces.  I made 10 set of these for the table.
