I Did It--Yah!

My MFT Camp Create roomie, Brenda, finished & headed home a couple days ago.  Due to getting distracted (other challenges!) & procrastinating (where IS that Blog Writing Genie?!) I'm just now packing up.  The good thing is I finished all the challenges & have cards I like enough to send to people! That's certainly a win, but I AM keeping my fingers crossed for the drawings--haha!
Here's my card for Day 3, Spectacular Shakers.  I was determined to use one of the MFT shaker pouches & found the pumpkin from MFT Primitive Pumpkins was just the right size.  The little stars & sentiment are from the same set.  
My stamping was done with PTI Summer Sunrise & Plum Pudding plus Distress markers peeled paint & crushed olive. So fun to use a bit of this wonderful printed paper I've slowly been cutting into for years, along with almost the end of the black, sparkly ribbon.  My shaker mix consists of seed beads, PPP confetti stars & Stampendous Shaved Ice.  The pumpkin is also covered in Wink of Stella, so lots of shine & sparkle.  I'm also entering ATSM (stem & swirl inked with markers), CropStop, The Playground & SSS Wednesday.

I had to get creative for Day 4, Sensational Sliders.  Hopefully my sliding camouflaged tag will qualify.  You may remember this idea from a 2015 PTI MIM.  
I started by trying out the toner sheets with my new Heidi Swapp Summer Rainbow foil using the MFT Layered Rose dies.  I was a little disappointed I didn't get perfect coverage, but can't justify the price of a Minc & who knows if it would have been better.  Anyway, I decided not to be so fussy. The 2 with the solid color (same foil) are done with self-adhesive fun foam & did cover perfectly.  
I white embossed MFT Geometric Grid Background & splattered with PTI Hibiscus Burst before attaching the panel to the card front, taping it to leave space for the tag to slide in & out.  
The tag & sentiment on the front are from MFT Tag You're It, while the sentiment on the tag is from MFT Peaceful Wildflowers.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies & Word Art Wednesday.
Edited to add: Also entering Virginia's Summer Blog Party.

I combined the bonus Divine Dry Embossing & Day 5 Glitzy Glitter.  Love the look of MFT Dizzy Doily dry embossed--gotta do that more often.  It makes a beautiful subtle background--just what I wanted for my glittery MFT Poinsettia.  
I've glittered the poinsettia dies before using the self-adhesive fun foam. This time, though, I used 2 colors of the Elizabeth Craft glitter on the blooms: Pink & Champagne.  The leaves are done in Sweet Basil & the sentiment is from an old MFT Christmas set without a label.

The sparkle from that brand of glitter is stunning--wish you could see it in person.  I'm also entering Christmas Card Challenges, CropStop & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks for making it to the end of this long post!  Hope you've found some time to craft--I'll be by soon!

I'm sorry I missed the last few days with you, but, didn't we have fun! I love the shaker with the pumpkin and the beautiful glittered poinsettia but that slider is my favorite. What a great idea and foiling the flowers is so cool. It looks terrific. I can't wait until next year. Darnell is going to room with us.

A wonderful variety of cards and different techniques. Love the shimmery shaker card and the foiling technique looks superb to me. The sparkly poinsettia looks fabulous on the embossed card and it looks like you had a great time. Thanks for the inspiration.
