Stampin' Up!'s Fifth Avenue Floral and new embossing powders....

Today's card is another one from Connie's recent workshop.  I chose to highlight the new Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango embossing powders from the new Summer Mini Catalog.  Here's how to recreate these beautiful flowers:
First, go to Baskin Robbins 31 Flavors Ice Cream.  Trust me, there's a reason!  Ask for a taste of any one of their ice cream flavors and hang onto that little spoon!  It is the perfect size for picking up small amounts of embossing powder which is exactly what you need to do next for this card.
Once you are home after having that double scoop of Pralines & Cream or whatever your favorite flavor is, stamp your image with versamark ink.
Next, take that little B&R spoon and scoop out a little of the Melon Mambo embossing powder and drop a little bit on three different spots on the stamped flower.  The amount should be about the size of an eraser head.  Next repeat with the Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi embossing powders.
Finally, tilt your paper around in several directions until the entire stamped image has been covered with the embossing powder.  Shake off the excess and use your heat gun to emboss.
This technique would also be cool with silver, gold and black embossing powders.
