During the first half it was sort of boring so I went into my craft space to Zone and make a card and this is what I made.
I cut another piece of flower and some leaves as shown on the left and stamped the sentiment from Lovely Inside & out set in Melon Mambo onto a scrap of paper into a banner and mounted with dimensionals. The diecut words were also mounted with dimensiionals and the whole card reminded me of those chintz fabric - Not so overly lovey dovey but still lovely.

I put a top attached from the back but it kept popping up but when I turned it around and attached it from the front, VOILA! It worked.
The pattern is my basic rectangular popup box with the side and front panel cut off. The basic pattern is below.
Turn the panel so that the first panel you scored is on the right and the panel you cut out is in on the bottom.
Take the piece of 2 1/4 x 8 1/2 inch panel you cut out and cut a piece 2 1/4x 3 1/2 and score this along the 2 1/4 inch side at 1/2 inch - this is the table top and you need to attach this to the FRONT of the box - !?4 inch scoring made it a bit too big - 1/2 inch seem better but you may need to play with it to fit perfectly.
The top drawer piece was 3 1/4 inch long, the bottom three drawers were 2 1/4 inches and the little drawers on the right were only 3/4 inch wide. I cut little 1/8 inch strips of silver cardstock to mimic handles on the drawers.
The tools were diecut using Silver cardstock from Stampin up (retired)- and used a black sharpie to make the handles and mounted using thin slices of dimensionals. Some tools were lifted with dimensionals to give some depth and the signs can be changed to fit your need.

I would like to ask stampin up for a better purple- Lavener lace was a color we had that was a little more bolder purple- just saying.

You can punch a bunch in no time at all. Put a punched strawberry on the side of the bowl - like it just fell out... Stamp the sentiment in black- and it is the cutest sweetest simplest card!

I saw this set and of course had to have it- the fruit pieces are just so cute and matching punches to boot- I just LOOOVE punches especially for little tiny things- drives me batty diecutting little tiny things especially when you need a gazillion of it.... Punch a strip of Old Olive with Decorative Ribbon Border punch.

The spooky night DSP was designed to get multiple pieces out of one sheet which I think was brilliant - perfect for workshops.
Take 8 1/2x 5 1/2 inch sheet of Pumpkin Pie and cut slits 1" from bothsides from 2 1/4 to 7 1/4 then turn sideways then score on the long side at 4-1/4 across the whole card - then score the following just between the side slits at 2 1/4, 5-1/4, 6-1/4 & 7-1/4. I used a ruler with the scoring tool so I could tell where I was scoring (between the slits) as shown on the left.
I stamped the owl in basic grey, beak and toes in pumpkin and the eyes in black.
I attached 3/4 inch x 4" strips of DSP on the side panela. (I cut 4 inch strip horizontally and cut 3/4 inch strips for multiple cards. ) I stamped the hat in black onto the base card - so I can see the spider and web without having to cut it out, then stamped another hat on a pumpkin pie scrap and cut it out and mounted it on top. Punch the cat in basic black and a piece of Very vanilla with the Everyday Label punch , stamped the "happy OWL oween" on it and cut off the bottom to make it look like a tombstone- I think that was my coolest idea for this card. It was still a bit flat and I wanted some bats flying around. All the ones I had were too small so I used my old Martha Stewart Bat punch from eons ago, stuck it on little clear plastic strips I cut out from packaging (you need something with some stiffness to hold the bats up) and used glue dots to attach them to the card as shown. It was so much fun to make this card. Enjoy!

The card template is a Z-fold box. The base card is Smoky slate 4 1/4x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.
Take another strip of 11x 2 inch Smoky slate and score it the same way. Invert the strips over the base card- and that is the base of the z-fold.
stamp the pigs and color them in with Stampin' Blends- new alcohol markers- coming back from Stampin Up- pink pirouette- comes in a set of two for $9.
I diecut a spiderweb from Memory Box and overlaid the Happy birthday to you from Sizzix and snipped off the spiderweb that fell behind the words to clean it up a bit. It is bit hard to see with the shadow of the web but I wanted it to look like the words was woven into the web. I am now looking for a die that says "salutations" in a delicate font! Sentiment from Hooray from PTI.

I did not have their circle burst of cityscape but I had another company scallop circle so I used that instead and the cityscape is from Memory box. I diecut one in smoky slate, and two in basic black with the open windows. I also diecut the solid city in daffodil and another in basic gray to add contrast and mounted them with dimensionals to
I made it a spinner then I realized the original card was a spinner too. There is a opposite position stamp so you can align it- how clever of these folks...
Inside sentiment from MFT Twice the wishes set.

This was Stampin/ Up's " Boo to you" (retired) with the hat in black glimmer paper using the Bag punch we made at a Stampin Up event.
Joyce does amazing treats and I love the woodland textured Embossing folder on the Fry Box on this one.
th little tail of the sequins and the stapled BOO! - and the hat punched with the star border punch - so cool
Make a treat for your friends this Halloween!
