MFT Camp Create: Days 4 & 5

I am back today to share the last two cards that I made for MFT's Camp Create
Day 4's challenge was Magnificent Masking.
For my card, I was inspired by Anna Kossakovskaya's planner pages
that she shared last week -- aren't they gorgeous?
Here's my card:

I started by using some masking to stamp the flowers and leaves 
from Flashy Florals onto my card base.
Then, I diecut the flowers and leaves from post-it notes to use to cover my flowers
while I stamped over top using a SSS wide stripes background stamp.
To get solid black lines, I repeatedly stamped, using my MISTI,
but this unfortunately left a little black on my flowers.
So I diecut those from white cardstock, restamped them and adhered them over
my original flowers.
I have to admit that I didn't get the cleanest of lines around my masked flowers,
so I used a black fine line marker to colour in over the fussiness.

I diecut my hello (from the Flashy Florals kit) from white and black
 cardstock, stacked them together and adhered them over my flowers.

I earned this badge:
And Day 5's Challenge was Background Bonanza.

I decided to use the MFT Colour Challenge 49 to make my card:

I thought of stamping my background using flowers, but decided
to just use leaves (from MFT Flashy Florals and Modern Blooms) instead.

I stamped them in Altenew Ocean Waves and Dusk and 
added the "berries" in Ruby Red.

I diecut a large banner from MFT navy cardstock and adhered
the thanks diecut from white cardstock.

I earned this badge:
I really enjoyed the challenges from MFT's Camp Create
and was super excited that I could play along this session!
I always enjoy being challenged to created a card that I otherwise
wouldn't have thought to create on my own.

Thanks for looking!

Love the graphic look to your cards with all that nice, crisp black! Love the bold sentiments and love those black and white stripes. And your flowers, as always, are just amazing!

I love anything with black and white stripes, Leigh, but I can't imagine stamping those stripes. Gorgeous. And the blue leaf background is beautiful too.
