What to Do When You Have No One to BOO YOU on Your Boo Card

September 6, 2016

I cased a Boo Panel Card a few weeks ago but didn’t have any of the Halloween images to add for the scary effect.  And I want to take it to a luncheon I’m going to tomorrow where I get to show what I do.  So I decided to use the Gingerbread Boy from the Cookie-Cutter Christmas stamp set.  And I chose to use the Halloween-y colors of Glowing Green, Purple Potion, and October Orange from an old Stampin’ Up! Glitter Stack called Halloween Highlights.

I stamped the image using VersaMark ink and then covered it with Heat & Stick Powder.

TIP:  Heat just until it turns glossy.

Then cover with glitter…….below.

Coat with glitter


TIP:  Heat glitter gently, just until set……below.

Heat just until set

Heat the glittered image just until it’s set. It won’t turn glossy.  I obviously didn’t use Embossing Buddy since I was going to punch the image.

Also used--Black Blast glitter

I very carefully positioned the bat from the Home Sweet Home Thinlits after stamping said bat with the image from the Sweet Home stamp set

I finished it off with a self-made envelope using the Envelope Punch Board, and the 3-1/4″ x 4″ setting.
