I didn't have a bunch of dies that I could inlay for a full background but I did find a few to use for this inlaid card.
I will not go into the details of how I made the card.
You can find that here...
...but I will list the items I used.
"stitched snow drifts"
"trees in the forest"
Distress marker (picket fence)
I so enjoy using the Camp Create videos to expand my creativity!

Can't get enough of these MFT "seaside seagulls" and they fit for both challenges.
This is a one layer white card stock base card.
I die cut the waves from a second piece of cad stock and sponged the bottom of the card with Distress ink salty ocean and then spritzed it and blotted it with a paper towel.
Covering the ocean with the other piece of the mask I stamped the gulls using Adirondack pitch black ink, then stamped them again onto post-it notes and cut them out.
The post-it notes also worked for the clouds from the same set.
After placing all the masks I sponged the top of the card with Distress ink peacock feathers.
I removed all the masking, stamped the verse from the same set using StazOn jet black ink and colored the gulls with my Chameleon pens.
The base card is white card stock with a layer of black card stock.
The main piece is another piece of white card stock that I taped to my scrap paper and because I didn't have a MFT stencil I used a piece of plastic screening I had.
I taped down the screening and added Distress inks for a rainbow effect.
Then it was over to the BigKick with MFT Die-namics "pierced rectangle stax" die to die cut the card front.
Using black card stock and MFT Die-namics"happy birthday" I die cut the verse for the front of the card.
To finish, once it was all taped together, I added black Nuvo drops.
...since I don't have an MFT background stamp I opted for the alternative of water coloring.
The base card is black card stock and my mono color is black!
On watercolor paper I sponged Distress black soot ink with and ombre effect.
The water from my spritzer gave it a water color feel.
Before taping it to the base card I stamped the verse and bats from MFT "spooky streets" using StazOn jet black ink.
Only three days left of camp...
Last night was bonfire night at MFT Camp Create but I want to go backwards appropriately so that's my next project...
What interested me in the Addicted to Stamps & More challenge was the "ombre" look of the feathers.
So I mixed it with the bonfire idea and came up with the above card with ombre sheep, sky and grass.
The sky was sponged onto the white card stock base card using Distress Oxide salty ocean and the cloud stencil.
On another piece of white card stock I sponged Distress Oxide twisted citron for an ombre effect before die cutting it out with the MFT "stitched snowdrifts" die.
I stamped the sheep on another piece of white card stock with Adirondack pitch black ink and colored it with Chameleon pen CG5 before cutting them out and applying them to the card.
I liked the bonfire idea of using black card stock with white embossing powder for the verse which comes from MFT "ewe are the best".
Once I did the heat embossing I trimmed it out and glued it to the bottom of the card front!
Back to camp.
