Peaceful Moments Thank You Cards

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made during last nights Facebook Live.  I go live every Wednesday night at 8 pm CST if you have never joined me.  This week I featured the Peaceful Moments Bundle from Stampin' Up! and showcased a Double Dry Embossed Technique and a way to coloring hack for die cuts.  Here's a look at my cards.

Tips & Tricks: 

I did the Flirty Flamingo version before the live, and did the Blackberry Bliss version during.  With the coloring hack you can see a lot of different color values.  The thing is all the die cut flower and leaves are one color cardstock.  Well the leaves was done with Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz Cardstocks.  I absolutely love the Poppy Moments Dies and all the wonderful floral creations that can be made with the dies and just some cardstock.  I created the multi-colored look with some ink and my sponge daubers.  For the Blackberry Bliss Poppy I used Blackberry Bliss ink in the center and Whisper White Craft Ink on the outside.  The craft ink makes the cardstock a little lighter so you naturally have a different hue.  
I did the same thing with the Flirty Flamingo version of the card but just used Flirty Flamingo ink in the center.  I also changed up the Designer Series paper and picked a pattern that had the Flirty Flamingo in it.  I used the same packs of Designer Series paper as the other card.  I used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper from the Mini Catalog; and the Golden Honey Saleabration Speciality Paper as the other.  
As far as the Double Dry Embossing technique it's super easy.  The main thing is that you have to have one that's not as strong of an emboss as the other.  I used the Subtle 3d Embossing Folder first and then used the Country Floral 3d embossing folder next.
