MFT Camp Create Day 4: Sensational Sliders – Hilarious ‘Ruff Day’ Card

Hello and welcome! Today’s project is from Day 4 of My Favorite Things Camp Create: Sensational Sliders.

I love interactive, touchy-feely cards! This one took a little extra measuring since I didn’t have the Blueprint plate used in the demo, but it was worth it! I left a 3/4″ edge around the 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card, cutting two 4 inch sides and one 2 3/4 side with a semi-circle traced from a AA battery in the middle.

And when you pull the slider open:

I know it’s kind of yucky, but it still cracks me up! Here’s a behind-the-scenes look… After blending in the ink for the sidewalk, grass and sky (each masked off as I went), I spritzed a little water and then randomly flicked in some grass blades.

Here’s another reason why the We R Memory Keepers Precision Press has a slight advantage over the MISTI:

For the peepee I used the Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops that dry clear and, when dry, I ran a yellow Copic marker over it.

Now, here’s a test… Did you happen to notice the dog’s name? If you missed it, you can scroll back to the first picture…. Yep, a true Boca Ratonian! I know another one called Dee-Oh-Gee…. think about it… say it slow…! : )

Welcome back to the MFT Camp Create special Farewell Bonfire (although there is one more session before it’s truly farewell).

After pigging out on imaginary s’mores, the campfire craft session dealt with Single Layer Savvy. So I did a little masking and put together this little scene:

I used warm and cool gray tones to add to the grumpiness and a touch of pink to show there are better times in this little guy’s life. I like how the thin black border sets  it off!

Supplies:

  • My Favorite Things stamp sets: BB I Knead You & BB You Make My Tail Wag
  • Coredinations cardstock: black, white, gray
  • Copic Markers: C1, 3; RV02, 04; W1, 3, 5
  • Sakura Pigma Micron 1 black pen
  • Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink
  • Tombow mono adhesive

This earns me the special badge…
