A Glittery Boo To You!

Well today is  yesterday was my big 65..yikes...am I really that OLD?
Oh well, it's better then the alternative as they say LOL!

 Today I  have a super easy card using two Tonic Studio dies
that both can be purchased at Sparkle N Sprinkle.



The first one is a Mini Moments BOO die.
I cut it once from black card and once from orange card
but I didn't stop there.
I coated the orange with Versamark embossing ink
and then used Jazzy Orange embossing powder.
This EB powder has glitter in it.
I think these EB powders should be called 'magic' as to me
like I have stated before, once heated, they appear, like 'magic'!




For the base of the card I stamped 'splatters' using the stamp set
Donna's Stylin Sayings from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
I first stamped in orange, then black, just kind of random.
I wanted to 'jazz' it up a bit more,
so stamped again, but with Versamark, then used the Jazzy Orange
embossing powder once again....
hard to see in the photo, but it gave lots of glittery sparkle!



The second die is Pumpkin Scene.
I really like this die as it is a 2-parter...
letting you cut the under base from one color and the scene from another.
I like how it looks as though it is 'glowing' from within.

I layered the finished panel on an orange base, then a black under that.



AFTER I took the photos, I decided it just needed something 'more',
so I added a few random Nuvo Ripened Pumpkin Enamel Drops
around the boo sentiment...it really added a lot!
(Just 'pretend' you can see it...lol)!

Make sure and pop back in tonight as at 9pm

Awesome! And happy belated birthday to you! I hope your card got there in time. I received your most beautiful leafy card. So delicately colored. Thank you!! Gee, maybe that largish order I put in at Lil' inkers and all the stuff I bought at Joann's qualifies as my birthday splurge, huh? Now I don't feel so bad. You should continue to celebrate all month.
