Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here sharing with you my first post with Peek-a-boo Designs! I am so happy and proud to be part of you!

Today I have three cards to share with you using the July Release. Oh my God, did you see the entire release? It is amazing and I didn't know where to start but let me show you my first card:

I created this card using the stamp set Layered Dahlias and the Funky Shapes Die Cuts released this month. I combined these beautiful flowers with a sentiment from the stamp set Friends Forever

The Layered Dahlias are a beautiful flowers that come in three layers that you can stamp to create a great contrast. In this project I only used two of the layers and one of the flowers. I used the base that I stamped in a light color and the details in dark color. I didn't stamp the outside petals. 

Of the Funky Shapes I only used the stars, that I cut using metal gold sheets and I pasted over the stamped area.

From the Friends Forever stamp set I took the banner Friends that I stamped with VersaFine Onix and covered with clear embossing powder that I melted with the heat tool and fussy cut with my scissors and pasted over the stamped base using zapdots or dimensionals.

My second card is totally different. For this I used other colors and other stamp sets and die cuts.

The base of this card is Whisper White card stock and I sponged the top side of the base with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink. Then I cut a second layer using the Graceful Lattice Die Cut with card stock Early Espresso. I pasted this die cut over the inked base and for decorate the borders I cut a stitched border using the Dual Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die Cut

Using the same die cut cut I created a stitched border over a piece of whisper white card stock and I stamped on it the sentiment Thanks a bunch that is included on the stamp set Flower in a Jar using VersaMark and Gold Embossing Powder. I melted the powder with the heat tool. Finally I decorated the left side using the image of the Poppies Bunch stamp released this month. I stamped this on whisper white card stock and colored with distress ink and fussy cut with scissors.

My last card is a Clear and Simple model that I made using a Word - Dream Die and two images of the stamp set Magical Fairies.

I created this card cutting several times the Dream die cut in Very Vanilla card stock and pasted these over the layer of the same color to create the background. Then I stamped individually the fairy and the sentiment over vellum using VersaMark the Blueberry Cheescake WOW Embossing Powder and I pasted these over the decorated layer.

On the photos you are seeing the embossing images a little distressed it is a light effect because this embossing powder is a marbling color but when you have the card in your hands this is simply amazing!
