Stampin’ Up has new embossing powders that match their new in colors and because I’m a heat embossing fool I’ve really had fun playing with these new colors. Notice how bright and beautiful the hibiscus flowers are! I also heat embossed the sentiment with the same Lovely Lipstick color and the outline of the flamingo using clear embossing powder over the image stamped in Memento Black.

To create the flamingo Stampin’ Up’s Fabulous Flamingo stamp set comes with 4 steps for the bird, I stamped off for the lighter color, isn’t she beautiful? This card is super simple and fast to put together, hope you give it a try.
