NEW Stampin’ Up! Embossing Powder Colors!

Stampin up summer mini catalog card ideas flower fest punch The thrill is still alive and well.  Learning how to heat emboss on one of my very first handmade cards and watching the shine and dimension emerge was one of the early “hooks” in my rubber stamp experience. Great news!  When the Summer Mini Catalog debuts on May 1, Stampin’ Up! will offer Stampin’ Emboss Powders in Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Melon Mambo.  They are bold and beautiful and the highlight of today’s Simple Saturday card.  Let’s hope there are more colors to come!

I relied on this Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge (SC329) to get started!  I “cheated” a smidge by incorporating the third rose 🙂


  • Stampin up pretty flower fest color embossing powders SNEAK PEEK ALERT!  Not only am I tempting you with the Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Emboss Powders, feast your eyes on two new stamp sets:  Flower Fest and Happy Greetings.  All these items will be available to customers on May 1. 
  • Many of the Flower Fest rubber stamps (I’m a fan of the clear-mount version) coordinate with Stampin’ Up! Punches.  The set immediately hopped on my “must have” list.  The “rose” was cropped with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch.
  • Hello!!!  Popping up one of the “hellos”  from Happy Greetings gives the sentiment a fun, colorful lift.
  • I shortened the front right side of my card by about 1/2″ and added a Melon Mambo scalloped border.  This produces a whole new look and finish.

    Such a fun, fabulous card. I love those powders!!! Hugs,

  4. Wow this card is soooooooooooo summery to me. It makes me think of watermelon! How funny is that. Very pretty and bright.

    I’m so with you…In the beginning (21 yrs ago) embossing is what drew me to Stampin’ Up at the very first home workshop I attended. Even my little boy loved the whole embossing “magic” and would carefully help me hold the heat gun and wait for the beautiful image to appear!!! I can’t wait to try the new bright colors in the Summer Mini!

  6. What great color! I hope they decide to add more colors, but they started out with three great ones. These are just perfect for Spring & Summer cards! Thanks again for a great demonstration, Mary!

  7. Mary, This is really a fun colors. I love to emboss. I do not do it often. I think I can easily be willing to give these new colors a new try. I love the card, and the color combination. You are so talented. Happy Easter to you and your family. Thanks Mary. Ellen Hinds

  8. Chris R. from Iowa

    What fun bright colors! I, too, was interested in seeing how the new embossing colors looked. Maybe I need to step out of my comfort zone of black and brown embossing colors. Oh wait, I have some metallic ones too I forgot in my stash. Have a great weekend with your family.

    Mary, I LOVE your Clean, Crisp and Creative Card 🙂 I too just love the new EB powders that are so fine that even very small detailed images come out beautifully. TFS

  10. Gorgeous card!! I wasn’t sure about the bright colored embossing powders until now. They just got bumped to the top of my Must Have List. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration. Happy Easter to you and your family!!

  11. Mary, love this card! It looks like a hip spring dress to me with a very fashionable mambo belt – love it! Thanks for showing off the new powders…I love to emboss 🙂 Happy Easter!

  12. whewee! so pretty and springy!

  13. Great colors on the embossing — you have definitely converted!! I think they have become one of my “must haves.”

  14. I am wondering: do you have to use Craft Ink with the embossing powder or, will the Classic ink suffice? I didn’t see in your posting which you used.Thanks.

  15. LOVE your color combo Mary. Have to say that SU has outdone it again with the new embossing powder colors! Can’t wait till May 1st. Really love your card-Melon Mambo is my FAVORITE color and this new stamp set is a must have for all. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Very fresh and summery. Great card, Mary.

  17. The colors are so vibrant! This is a really cute card. Love the melon mambo border too!

  18. Terry Molineux

    I was so glad to see new embossing colors in this mini! I still have my old colors. We had them in all four color families and use them sometimes. It would be so great if SU offered them in all four of our collections now…wouldn’t it?

    Mary love today’s card although bright is really out of my comfort box but I am sure I will grow to love them!!!

  19. Hi Mary;
    This is so cute, loving the color combo and design.
