UMT-Frosted Pumpkins

Hello and Happy Thursday. Today's post is titled Using My Tools Thursday. I am also inspired by a challenge over at Stamp Nation to use frosting on your card (some sort of saparkle). For this card I chose to grab something out of my stash that's been neglected and put it to good use. For this card I chose a few items that have been neglected in my stash and combined them with  a few new items. I love when it works out like that! The older stash items are the Martha Stewart border punch, the raffia and the DSP. The newer items are the sentiment, sequins and card stock. I hope you enjoy my post.

For this card, I used Staz On ink to stamp the image on acetate and then turned the image over and used glossy accents and glitter to fill in the "Frosting". I then used a circle die to cut out the circle from each layer. This card was a bit of a process. I first cut the partial circle from the Faded Brick card stock, then I used that as a guide to make the other cuts for the card base and the patterned paper. I heat embossed the sentiment. If you haven't tried using glitter on acetate you can find the tutorial that inspired me under my tutorial tab, scroll down until you see " Glitter on Acetate". All my tutorials are listed in alphabetical order.

Feel free to leave a comment or question about this card. I hope to hear your feedback!

Beautiful card!! I really like how you combined the old with the new. Often when we get new products, we forget about the other things that we have.

Now THIS is frosted. Love anything with glitter!! I have never used Staz On oddly. Don't know why. I just bought some acetate card stock trying to figure out what to do for Christmas so perhaps I will finally try it. I just CASED'd the snoopy card over at Stamp Nation and put my own spin on it. It's cute but I don't think I am going to make a bunch. Too time consuming for the outcome. That SOA box is making my head much stuff to play with!!
