Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you three cards crated with different products released this month on the Peek a boo Store that I loved. One of my favorite combinations is stamps and die cuts, but today I am very happy playing with stencils too! Oh My God, you need to visit the Peek a Boo store to get crazy like me! Take a look at my cards:

My first card is one of my favorites this month because I used watercolor paper and distress ink to create the background and, when I use these two products, the result is always different. I love the color combination on this.

Creating this was very simple:
  1. Cut the base using Very Vanilla card stock. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2"
  2. Cut a second layer in watercolor paper. The size is 4-1/8"x5-3/8"
  3. Watercolor the right side using distress in four different colors. I used Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Blueprint Sketch.
  4. Cut two butterflies using the new Heart Butterfly die cut. Don't forget to recycle the hearts to use in other project!
  5. Stamp the sentiment from the stamp set Doodle Butterfly using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  6. Paste the butterflies using glue dots.
  7. Paste the decorated layer using a hard snail adhesive.

My second card is created with Very Vanilla card stock too.... it may be my favorite color for the season? Normally I use Whisper White...LOL! On this card I have my perfect combination: Die Cuts, stamps, stencils, techniques and a few embellishments.

Creating this was easy and simple too:
  1. Cut the base of the card using Very Vanilla card stock. The size is 4-1/2"x11".
  2. Cut a second layer using Very Vanilla card stock. The size is 4-1/4"5-1/2.
  3. Take the stencil Abstract Triangle Stencil and secure it over the second layer. Apply three different colors of ink over the open areas using a brush or sponge. I used a clarity brush and the colors of ink Soft Suede, Tangelo Twist and Bermuda Bay of Classic Ink. If you want you can play with the position of your stencil.
  4. Take one of the die cuts of the Dual Stitched Fishtail Banner Collection and cut it over the stenciled layer.
  5. Place the second layer temporarily over the card base and stamp the sentiment inside the die cut space. I used a message from the stamp set Happy Birthday to All with VersaFine and Clear Embossing Powder that I melted with the heat tool.
  6. Stamp the complimentary message over the second layer using the same ink and embossing.
  7. Paste the second permanently over the card base.
  8. Finalize the decoration by adding two tiny bows in natural twine.

For my last card I used a combination of card stock to break the tradition! I used Sahara Sand for the base and Whisper White for the second layer. I am definitely a fan of the neutral colors, don't you think?

Making this was a great time because I love this stamp set. It is called Feathers and, let me tell you that it is simply amazing and their messages are perfect!
  1. Cut the base using Sahara Sand card stock. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2"
  2. Cut the second layer using Whisper White card stock. The size is 4"x5-1/4".
  3. Stamp the feathers in three different colors of ink. From the bottom to top I used Pool Party, Sahara Sand and Peach Parfait Classic Ink.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Sahara Sand Classic Ink.
  5. Add some enamel dots from the Pastel Collection.
  6. Paste the decorated layer over the card base.

These are the products that I used to create these cards. You can find these on Peek a Boo store.
