Double Embossing and Moxie

Can you taste Friday yet? I'm just about drooling for the weekend. But I'm super excited for a new season of Project Runway tonight! It's about the only 'reality' show my hubby will sit and watch with me :)

Today I made my first card ever to enter into Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger! I had a lot of fun with the inspiration photo, and it is my favorite colors to craft with :) green, blue, and whites! I was inspired by the colors and the great geometric patterns throughout. I found a couple great patterned papers that I paired together...

I also created a card for day 150 over at 365 Cards.  The challenge was to use a background that was either dry embossed or heat embossed.  I couldn't pick between the two so I used both, and I used them together. It's hard to capture in the photo because the heat embossing shines so much, but this is definitely a new favorite technique for me! I dry embossed the background flowers with a cuttlebug folder, and then I used a normal glue pen to trace over the flowers, then added white and silver emboss powers. The glue pen actually worked better than my normal glue pad stamps and I'll probably use it this way always! I love it! I then took a skinny sentiments stamp from Hero Arts "sending you hugs and kisses" and stamped it a few times along the curves of the flower stems...
