Brooms & Boos stamps and dies

Candy Corn stencil

Today I have a super fun card to share with the Brooms & Boos stamp set but I’ll be sharing an adorable card with the candy corn stencil later on this week! So, stay tuned!

The sentiments in this set go so well with the images and I just love it all! Today I narrowed it down to a silly, moderately snarky sentiment and this cute little witch with her broomstick! I had fun pulling out some traditional Halloween colors to use too!

After stamping my images, I used copic markers to color them and the coordinating dies to cut them all out. For my background panel I blended distress oxide inks in mowed lawn, seedless preserves and carved pumpkin. I sprizted the panel with water and let it dry. Then I adhered the Cascading Stars stencil to it and spread Wild Lilac Glitter Glitz Gel from Thermoweb through that. I started in the top left corner and just spread until it faded out. I didn’t want a full panel of glitter, just some fun accents.

Once that panel was dry, I trimmed it down to 5.5×4 inches and added foam tape to the back. For a little accent I stuck a strip of washi tape on the edge of my card base and then adhered the background panel down.

Arranging my images on the card front, I decided to add my sentiment to a banner from the Frames & Flags die set. This die is solid so I cut it out first and stamped the sentiment second. Then I added foam squares to the back of everything and adhered it all down.

For finishing touches I added some glossy accents to my witch on things like her hat band, boots, broom and belt. Then I added Stickles to the moon for a little glitz up there too. I couldn’t leave the bats alone though so I painted some Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen on them so they shimmer too!
