More MFT Summer Camp … and Other Fun Stuff

Hello … bonjour!  I’m back with the remaining two cards I made over the weekend … still keeping it short and sweet.  First up, a gentle breath of nature …

MFT Summer Camp - Watercolour, MFT Sketch 285, TESJ 40A masked and splattered-with-three-greens panel, divided with slender strips of black, topped with a watercoloured palm leaf from MFT and an embossed sentiment from SSS.  Some black enamel dots finished it off.

In contrast, here’s my fun and bright second offering …

MFT Summer Camp - Shaker & Slider 1, AAA 67, HLS Dies - June, VV 22, SSSW 15-6         

A pair of tropical love birds (MFT), coloured with Promarkers and Wink of Stella’d, their eyes meeting as they walk toward one another along the ‘pebble’ scattered rainbow shaker beach (it’s the tropics, there’s bound to be a rainbow beach!).  You can see how taken they are with each other from the Wink of Stella’d and Glossy Accented hearts floating up between them.   Madame Love Bird certainly seems to be giving Monsieur Love Bird the eye!  It doesn’t stop there … I caught them leaning forward to steal a kiss …

MFT Summer Camp - Shaker & Slider 2, AAA 67, HLS Dies - June, VV 22, SSSW 15-6Ahhh … true love … yep, birds of a feather (MFT).  They do seem to be a little reserved as they’re looking down rather than gazing into one another’s eyes.  Could be it’s because they’re in public (would you smooch in front of all these people?) … or maybe they’re just watching where they put their feet with all those pebbles around … they don’t want to twist a claw!

  4. Susi

    Wonderful cards, Anita – I love that rainbow walkway on your tropical birds card. Birds in love should be walking on rainbows and flying in the clouds, don’t you think?

  5. Jeanne

    Oh my, that first card is very pretty and soothing. I like the speckles! But then…oooh la la! Adore your colorful birds and the delightful story that goes with them. 🙂 The rainbow and pebbled pathway are so creative. Simply wonderful, bright and oh so fun! Such inspiration! Thanks ever so much for sharing. 🙂 Hugs!

  9. lollthompson

    Gorgeous splatters and a fantastic design Anita. Your first card really is a fresh and fun. And speaking of fun, your “love” birds are so sweet. Bright and happy, and the shaker “sand” is so creative. Looks like you’ve been having a great time creating. 🙂 xx

  10. Tracey McNeely

    Anita your cards for camp are all so fabulous–the splattered background is so much fun and the birds shaker?? Seriously cute!! I haven’t even started the camp projects–may timing is way off these days!

  11. Bobby

    Cool and elegant – bright and whimsical. Two very different cards that speak to your creativity, Anita. I should have gone to this camp I think. I haven’t earned a badge since Girl Scouts back in the dark ages.

  12. Virginia L.

    How stinky cute are those love birds, Anita! Your creativity never cease to amaze me. Love the rainbow shaker element!! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Animal Magic” Challenge! Well done! So glad that you link it up to Virginia’s View Challenge!

  13. Nancy L.

    Love them both Anita! Those love birds are just being shy for sure! Love the clever way you made your shaker! So impressed with your versatility! All my cards are the same…the scream Nancy made that! You keep me guessing!

  14. Alanna

    What fun cards. I love the design of your first one and those birds on your second one are just too cute. And what a great little mini shaker portion.

  15. Cat Craig

    That mini shaker is so much fun, but your first card really caught my eye. I am always looking for styles to send to my Dad, and this is a fabulous design.

  16. conil

    You’re first card is cooling me off perfectly…I call it a lime popsicle (hey, if it isn’t wine it’s food). So lovely and refreshing. Now, we’ll talk about that second card. Toujour l’amour (did I get that right?). This is what I call a stroke of genius…shaker and focal points moving…doesn’t get better than that. But that’s not all…so beautifully colored, takes my breath away. If this doesn’t win one of those challenges, something is seriously wrong with the judges.

  17. BarbGhig

    Looks like you’re having a blast at camp, Anita! Your first card is so pretty…I love how you splattered the three panels, yet your design is perfectly CAS…Stunning work! Your “Tropical Love Birds’ just slay me! I love all the beautiful colors, and the rainbow and sparkly ‘walkway’ is fabulous! You’re on a roll, my friend! This card is a Winner, or I’ll eat my hat 🙂

  18. susannev2014

    Your splattered panel with the watercolored leaf looks so fresh and summery! And those love birds on the pebbly rainbow beach as well as your commentary make me laugh out loud! You have a great sense of humor (beside being an outstanding card maker!

  19. Rose J

    Love your ink splatters Anita! Very nice effect with the different greens. Those love birds are just too cute! Gorgeous colouring & a fabulous fun card.

  20. Gerrina

    The second card is so crisp and funny, but your first is stunning! So effective with so less! Great! Hope you are having some sunshine this week!

  21. Bev

    Lovely and fun cards today, dear friend. Gorgeous green splatters, and sweet little frond. Those love birds, however….. Seems they’ve stolen everyone’s heart! And she leans!!! Girl, you are just brilliant!!!! Rainbow beach, too… Dang girl. Rockin’ on so many levels. Great cards. xo

  22. jmhave44

    #1 is so fresh & love the way you’ve done the layout…The black strips make the green spattering really glow. And of course I love the green fern. So very graceful. Black & white with the green…very crisp and lovely together. #2 was just pure delight with the colors, those birds and the cutout rectangle to add even more color. Liked the falling hearts detail very much too! TFS & Hugs

  23. TK

    Such sweet and adorable cards! Love, love, love the splattered panels, but then there’s love in the air with those beautiful “awe struck” birds, as well…

  24. Geri G

    I love your splattered panels – especially with the fine black border and the smattering of black enamel dots! Second card….well my goodness girlfriend…there is no doubt about it that you rock birds!!! Love every little detail on this card! The rainbow shaker panel and the glint in her eye steal the show!!!

  25. Izzy Scrap

    Deux magnifiques cartes et si différentes ! Beaucoup de tranquillité et de zenitude dans la première et la seconde est si mignonne ! Que de créativité !

  26. Brenda Lawrence

    OMGoodness Anita, I love your beautiful leafy card! The splatters are fabulous and I love how the black strips just makes the green splatters and leaf jump off the page. Love it! I also love the “Love” birds! How cute are they?!! Their rainbow love beach is amazing as a shaker and I love how they seem to be kissing after they get together. lol They are just acting calm and cool on that beach! Who cares who see them kissing, so heck yes, I would kiss in front of all those people! But just a quick kiss. lol Hugs, Brenda

  27. Cornelia (fun stamping)

    You are creating a bird competition here – another fabulous card!!! And that googly eye – can’t get much better than that! Although is Miss bird flirting or does she perhaps need some coffee??? – can’t decide how to interpret her expression 😉 – How did you make them move??? Spill your secrets, Pleease!

  28. djkardkreations

    You have been on a wonderful creative roll, Anita! Two more lush cards, one subtle and one bold. Your talent knows no bounds when it comes to design and execution! Those two shaker love birds – watching their clawsteps – stole my heart!! LYAMYLMA! Hugs, Darnell

  29. Coralynn

    Those birds are wonderful. I love your take on our googley eye challenge. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards!

  30. Jen W.

    I love how completely different these are, Anita! The black strips on the first card are the perfect compliment to the splatter and the whole card has such a serene feel. Your second card totally made me chuckle. Those lovebirds are adorable!!

  31. Claire A

    These are amazing Anita – love the splattered panels broken up by the black..what a great design. And those vibrant, colourful birds are just brilliant with the rainbow shaker. So fun!

  32. cmayne

    Whatever the number of badges, methinks you’ve earned them all! The first, so delicate and lovely; your second, wonderfully whimsical and ‘romantic’! Your kissing birds are absolutely charming, enjoying their little beach-y interlude!

  33. conil

    Your Toucan card delighted not only me but the smart folks at Virginia’s View. Congratulation, mon amie, for being in the top 10 favorites.
