Happy Monday everyone!  Last week MFT did a third session of Camp Create. Naturally, I went camping for the third time and joined in the fun!  As in previous sessions, they had 5 challenges.  I completed all 5 this weekend to earn all 5 badges and to be entered in the grand prize drawing. You can get a closer look at my entries on my Instagram account.



With it being the final Camp Create session this summer, there was a bonus farewell challenge.  The challenge was to create a one layer card.  My card today was an idea that I’ve had floating around in my head ever since I saw MFT’s Adorable Elephants stamp set.

My idea was to have these elephants get busted for sneaking a cupcake treat.  If they weren’t so cute and innocent-looking, they would be in so much trouble. *lol*  To create this one layer scene card, there was A LOT of masking. My MISTI was a must-have in lining up my stamps and planning out my card.

I created the grass edge and window masks with a die. All other masks were stamped on masking tape and fussy cut out. The wall was created by ink blending Old Paper and Spiced Marmalade distress inks through a brick wall stencil before all masks were removed.  I flicked grass blades with a couple of green Copic markers to create texture. For  depth and dimension, I added shading to the left side of the elephants and under the window.

For a little bit more dimension and interest, I heat embossed the sentiment, added glossy accents to the cherry and added clear Wink of Stella to the tops of the cupcakes.

This card took a bit of time, but I love the end result, especially since I’ve been wanting to do it for so long.  All 3 sessions of Camp Create was so much fun and I was glad to be able to participate.



I am entering in the following challenges:
MFT Camp Create – Single Layer Savvy
AAA Cards – Game #71 Blending
SSS Wednesday Challenge – Let’s Go Wild
Addicted to Stamps and More – Anything Goes

  1. What adorable elephants and so cute balancing on top of each other.
    Superb blending and wonderful colouring, thanks for sharing and playing along with us at AAA Cards this week. Sarah

  2. A bit of a masterpiece in masking – looks totally 3D and I would never have realised it was one layer without the explanation of how it was achieved. Thanks for sharing at AAA Cards.

  3. OMG Trina, that card is adorable. Even better IRL of that’s possible. It was great to craft with you today.
    BTW I am able to see the pics with your email notifications for your blog posts.
