Ooohhhh....Color Embossing Powder!

Hi guys! Just as I promised, I am back with a card that uses the new colored embossing powders. I am happy to say that if you like the 2 new colors I used today, there are SIX new colors to chose from on July 1st. Wanna see?

I took a close up of the new Postage Stamp punch and the "thanks" image from Pretty Postage too...
That fun flower is from the Summer Mini set called Touch of Kindness. I stamped the flower twice...once on Whisper White in Melon Mambo ink and then another time on Melon Mambo Brights Patterns DSP. The one on white CS is also embossed with Melon Mambo Stampin' Emboss Powder. I stamped the stem in Wild Wasabi and then embossed with the matching Stampin' Emboss powder. Both of these colors plus Tangerine Tango are offered in the current Summer Mini catalog.

My sentiment is from the Pretty Postage set. This is such a fun product combo. I love that all 4 images can be punched with the coordinating punch. I have played with it on other images too. It works well with small flowers or shapes and even as a background for lettering on scrapbook pages. So much fun!

I want to mention one last item before I take off for several appointments today. The ribbon I used on this card will soon be retired. This is 5/8" Whisper White Grosgrain ribbon. All the 5/8" Grosgrains are retiring on June 30th so if this is a favorite of yours, you'll want to stock up. I promise you it is being replaced with fun ribbon products that you'll love just as much though!

That does it for me today. Have a great one!
