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!

The basecard is melon mambo with a layer of whispet white. I took some pear pizazz cardstock and cut out some ovals using the layering framelets. Folded 2 (different sizes) of the leaves a little off center to give the impression of the leaves. The largest oval I diecut then used scissors to cut a margin of oval to make the stems.
It's sort of how I imagined the card. Slightly smaller flowers or graduated flowers with a stem and leaves die would have been fantastic but not bad, eh?

Add a layre of Pear Pizazz then another whisper white stamped with Lemon zest in Daffodil Delight on the left and sentiment to the right with Memento Black.
Stamp another lemon whole and a slice with Daffodil Delight and 2 leaves with Pear Pizazz on a scrap of whisper white and punch it out with the Lemon builder punch. Cut the lemon slice in half and save one for use on the inside. Layer with dimensionals as shown.

I saw a card by Claire Daly that used this card sketch but the colors did not work for me and I did not have the DSP she used so I changed it up and this is what we made this past month's party.
Basecard is Berry Burst with another layer of Berry Burst on top diecut with the Eclectic Layers framelets. A layer of silver glimmer paper behind the cutout for some extra shimmer. Stamp the little tulips from the stampset in Berry Burst. Stamp the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and punch it out with Pretty Label. Stamp the leaves with old olive and cut out a soft sky flower and the powder pink flower after stamping with Berry Burst again. Diecut all the pieces and mount as shown with some Rhinestone basic jewels and Gold faceted gems (because the clear ones are on backorder) but the variation I think is still pretty.

A little $$ tucked away in the back and a banner personalizing the card I think makes it sweet.
