Pretty, pretty, Pretty Postage!

AHHHH!! I love it!! When I first saw the colored embossing powders in the new Summer Mini, I thought, "what in the world will I ever use all those colors for?" But I am having a BALL with the melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango. And it's given me a new lease on the Whisper White as well, so the heat tool's a hummin' away in my stamp room these days!

I'm crazy about the way this Pretty Postage card turned out. I was mass-producing, so I made eight of each color postage stamp at a time, so I only had to clean up those Powder Pal trays once for each color used. Then I punched them all out with the Postage Stamp punch (page 10 in the mini; stamp set is on page 11) and attached them to a Pretty in Pink base, on a Wild Wasabi card. The wild colors all look awesome together!

I made one other card style while I had everything out… same stuff with the postage stamps, only configured differently on a Melon Mambo background this time and a sentiment from A Word for You embossed in Whisper White. Super fun!
