Glimmer Mist Halloween Treats

Trick or Treat
Smell My Feet
Give me something good to eat. . .

Oh, forget it!
Just give me some Glimmer Mist to play with!

I had the strangest thought today-- wouldn't it be awesome if we could take our Trick or Treat Buckets from door to door on Halloween night and instead of candy, everyone would give out scrapbook supplies? Wow! I would be in trick or treat heaven! Especially, if there were lots of colors of Glimmer Mist involved!

Last week I told you that this Glimmer Mist thing is a bit new for me, but let me tell you, I
am now HOOKED! Check out the Halloween treat tags I made with mist everywhere--


First I started by using some Halloween Glimmer Screens and several different colors of absolutely gorgeous Glimmer Mist-- Sunflower, Jack O'Lantern, Haunted Shadow, Graphite and Key Lime Pie.



I used three different screens and when they were dry, I was left with images like this:


Then I used some Tattered Angels stamps that are made specifically to go with these Glimmer Screens-- the stamps go just over the image I made with the screens. I actually wet embossed my images using a black glitter embossing powder to give them more shine. I matted the images on Bo Bunny Double Dot cardstock in Raven, Plum and Burnt Orange (PERFECT Halloween colors!) and stitched around the edges. And no, my machine was not going crazy, I kept changing the stitches as I went around, just for fun!


After that I was ready to embellish! And I went a little crazy with my Halloween Glimmer Mist colors, spritzing anything that would hold still, including a chipboard moon, some ribbon, some Petaloo Halloween flowers, a strip of crepe paper, a hand crocheted flower from The Beary Scrap and even a plastic spider ring.




When everything was nice and glitzy, I added all those goodies to my tags, attached them to a bag of treats and they were ready to go!






If you haven't tried Glimmer Mist, you've got to get some, it is definitely a treat every paper crafter needs. Remember The Beary Scrap will continue to carry Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist through their online store so check back in the next few weeks as Kimm gets new inventory up on the website and now is a great time to stock up on lots of goodies to spray that mist on during her Clearance Sale.


Don't forget to do your own misting and join us in our current Beary Sweet Challenge, link up your entry before that spooky night, Oct. 31 @ 11:59 EST, we can't wait to see your fabulous projects!
