Happy Halloween!

Hello Dreamers,
Happy Halloween!  We should be having lots of Trick or Treaters here tonight.  Unfortunately, the weather is not all that great.  But, that should not get between  kids and the chance at all the treats.
I made a few special treat bags for my neighbors.  I wanted to make something a little special.  So, I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies-half with milk chocolate chips and half with white chocolate chips.  After the cookies were baked and cooled, I dipped one end in melted chips and added sprinkles.  The cookies look pretty festive!

Now, on to the cards for today.  Halloween cards made with a super fun stamp from The Stampsmith.

Card One

CS: Glossy white, orange, purple, and green
DP: Halloween papers
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento: Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink
Rick Rack
Crazy Mesh


  • Make cards from the orange CS and layer with DP
  • Stamp the image on glossy white CS and distress edges and background with distress ink
  • Layer image and add to card
  • Add the fibers and Stickles

Very easy and quick! Here is a second version:
