Guest Designing at Peek-a-boo Designs | Post 1

Hello everyone!
I'm back today to share some projects I made for my Guest Design post at Peek-a-boo Designs. They sent me two lovely stamps to work with and here's what I have come up with.

To create my card, I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and foliage from the Flowers in a Jar stamp set and colored it using Distress inks. I fussy cut the flowers separately and foam mounted them against the trellis background which I have made using various dies from Spellbinders. The background is dry embossed using an embossing folder from Provocraft and I lightly painted it using Distress ink- Peacock Feathers. I added a sentiment from Altenew - Label Love set and few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish the card.

To make my second card, I first created my background using Texture Paste mixed with Peacock Feathers Distress ink using a Heidi Swapp stencil. Then I die cut a circle using Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle dies and sponged it using Distress inks and foam mounted it on my card base. Then I stamped the flowers, leaves and the buds from the Flowers in a Jar set heat embossed it using Super Fine Gold embossing powder from Ranger and directly colored my images using a sponge dauber and Distress inks and fussy cut them before placing them on my card base. Added a few sequins to finish my card.

To create this card I first stamped and heat embossed all the images from the Flower in a Jar set on a watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed them. Then I watercolored my images using Distress inks, once dry, I fussy cut them and foam mounted them on my card base and created a diagonal design in the bottom half using washi tapes to add interest. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped and heat embossed directly on the card base using Ranger's Super Fine Gold embossing powder.

I'm linking up my cards to the Ranganjali Monthly Challenge- Embossing (I've done both dry and heat embossing on all three cards), Paru's Card making Challenges- Anything Goes, Simon Says Stamp -Make it Girlie.
