MFT Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist – Sweet Lace Cards

Welcome! Today I have a sweet set of 4 cards I did with the technique from My Favorite Things’ Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist.


The backgrounds were heat embossed with that fabulous lace stamp. I love running your fingers over it afterward as it feels lacy! I did two in white and two in gold with glitter finish . Love that shine!

Then I did one of each with a rainbow of watercolor and one of each with red and blue, making purple in the middle. Which combo do you like best?

Here is the badge I earned for today’s lesson:

MFT Stamps Summer School Session 3 Lesson 15 – Color Temperatures

Well, this is that last lesson of My Favorite Things Summer School Session 3 and, if I hurry, I may just get it done in time for the noon deadline!


This lesson (#15) is on creating a mood using the temperature of colors. They have divided them into three groups: neutrals, cool  and warm colors.


Neutrals (black, white, browns, grays). A neutral color palette  often evokes a classy, elegant, sophisticated, and glamorous feel.

Here is my neutral card:


Cool Colors (blues, purples, greens). A cool color combination evokes a calm, serene, and harmonious feel.

Here is my cool card:



You can heat things up with the Warm Colors (reds, yellows, oranges). Warm colors evoke an energetic, optimistic, exciting, playful, and happy feel.

I used autumn orange, yellow and copper for my warm card:


Materials used:

  • My Favorite Things: Heart Balloons stamp set and Lace Background
  • Versamark Ink
  • Hampton Art copper embossing powder
  • Stampendous PEARLustre embossing powder – Tanzanite
  • Recollections Detail Embossing Powder – Gold
  • DCWV cards
  • Misc. cardstock, ribbon, adhesives

Well, that’s the last of the lessons for now. My Favorite Things says they’ll have final exams in September… I may be absent! Hahaha!

My Favorite Things Summer School Session 3 – Lesson 12 Design: Symmetry/Asymmetry

Moving on to the next lesson (#12) in the My Favorite Things Summer School Session 3 on Design.


This lesson is on Symmetry/Asymmetry.Symmetry is balanced proportions in design…If you cut the design in half, it is essentially the same on each side. Asymmetry is the placement of non-identical forms to either side of a balancing point in a way that the two sides seem to be of the same visual weight but aren’t.

Here are the cards I came up with:


Can you tell which is symmectrical and which is asymmetrical? Hopefully you can! : )

I love this die set from My Favorite things – It’s actually Flamingos, but a small snip to the beak and you’ve got swans! Gotta love any die that you gives you more bang for your buck! Of course, being the punny person I am, I couldn’t resist hand-writing the inside sentiments:



Some day somebody will make a stamp outta that!  (hint-hint)

A quick note on that lovely background – It’s My Favorite Things fabulous Lace Background stamp clear embossed on peach cardstock. Then I went over it with a coral Tombow brush pen and watched it change into something beautiful!


On the left is the clear embossing (which I thought would turn it slightly darker, but didn’t).
