Boo Witch for Halloween

And now it is almost time for that magical day when kids (and adults who still think like kids) are transformed into all KINDS of costumed characters, celebrities, animals, creatures and clever concepts.

I hope your Halloween is a safe and happy one -- filled with lots of treats, decent trick n treat weather ....and one in which memories are made to last a lifetime.  

In my final Halloween card for the season, I thought I would incorporate some easy, fun techniques that give added texture and sparkle...plus the illusion of movement. 



Here's what you will need:


Impression Obsession Rubber Stamps 

D7981 Little Witch
H7759 Spooky Trees

Clearsnap
Colorbox®️ Archival Dye ink pad: Wicked Black
Top Boss®️ Embossing Stamp pad
Colorbox®️ Embossing Powder (Gold)

Beacon Adhesives
Zip Dry®️ Paper Glue
Premium Tacky Glue

Heat Tool
Frame Die of your choice
Wood or chipboard letters painted black


Here's how to make it:

1. Cut out a frame from black cardstock and an oval from orange cardstock.

2. Stamp Little Witch on orange oval.  Before lifting stamp, carefully rotate it to the left and then to the right. Lift and remove stamp.

3. Stamp top portions of the Spooky Trees on the letters using the Embossing stamp pad.  Heat emboss with gold powder.  

4. Attach all layers as shown using Zip Dry Paper Glue.  Attach the letters with Premium Tacky Glue; dry.
