Summer Card Camp 2 - Day 5

Hello!

On Day 5 of Summer Card Camp 2 we have been given some new colours to work with. I deliberately chose combinations that were different to the bright colours we've used previously. I made two cards.

The first card I made, I used the colours from Summer Card Camp 2 and the sketch from Birthday Creations Week: The Birthday Sketch Challenge. The big sentiment and the main ticket are stamped in gold and shine brightly in real life!
Stamps are MFT Just The Ticket, Hero Arts Envelope Pattern Background, and PTI Think Big Favorites #16. Colours are SU! Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Hero Arts Pale Cantaloupe, Delicata Golden Glitz, Memento Tuxedo Black.

My second card I used another colour combination from Summer Card Camp, and used the inspiration provided by Kristina Werner. Kristina told us about using an acetate window. I don't have any acetate to make a window, so I used vellum with the same concept. The card layout is a combination of Kristina's and one that I saw Joyce use this week (Joyce's card is much nicer than mine).
I used PTI Pretty Peonies stamps and dies. The colours are SU! Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and PTI Hibiscus Burst. The vellum is embossed with PTI linen impression plate.

While I've been concentrating on lessons, my girls have been inspired also. My little girl decided to play along, but she didn't want to use the sketches or colours provided, LOL! This card was designed and produced 100% by my 5 year old. In fact, she told me off for even thinking of helping! I would like to point out that she pasted the sun on with the rough side out on purpose because "I like the texture". She also decided to paint white leaves with a green ink pad, even after I told her we could cut her green leaves to save her the trouble. Apparently that was a design feature!
My 10 year old came in, looked at the card, and said, "Maybe she's going to be your stamping kid."

Since I'm showing off my little kid, I'll show you one of my big kid's photos, which she took of the little one doing her homework. I think it's a nice study. :-)

Thanks for coming by today!

Great cards Michelle, I especially like the use of vellum in the aperture. And thanks for sharing your daughters card. Tell her it is lovely, well done! My grand daughter (3 years old) loves stamping too!

I love that your daughters created with you. I love what your older daughter said :)! Your cards for class are both gorgeous. Way to show off your style! I love your daughter's as well...it is great to see their creative process at work!

It's so cool that your daughter didn't want to use the sketch! She's an independent thinker and creator. Her card is so cute! Mom's cards are wonderful too. Especially love the one with the bold flowers!!!

Love your cards but I LOVE your daughter's card! I love that she has her own mind--hmm promising future. I also love you older daughter's comment. LOL

Like mother, like daughter... Or is it like daughter, like mother?! Either way I think you have a star in the making Michelle. All the cards are beautifully made and as for your studious oldest... Love the comment!! LOL! Xx

All of these are great cards! I love your idea of using vellum and it looks so nice. Your daughters no doubt have your creative talent!

Joyce said...

Wonderful cards. And, thanks so much for the shout out. I have received so much inspiration and cased your cards so often, so I am just in amazement that you found something of mine to case. And, I think yours is better! That first card totally nailed the sketch. I found that sketch to be quite a stumper, and am still trying to think of something original to do. Oh, and I love your daughter's card, too.

Beautiful cards Michelle! I really love the one your daughter made, just so sweet! My daughter used to scrapbook with me and I saved all of her creations, so much fun to look back on.

Laura B. said...

Loved seeing what your daughter created! So sweet!

Janet Zeppa said...

Your little girls seem so sweet!

How fun that your daughter wants to stamp with you! I think that's great she didn't want any help-- my Sage requires quite a bit of attention when we're stamping together-- she likes if we work on her card together. ;)
