I’m not sure why, but I always struggle using the Designer Series Paper (DSP). I love the papers, but I seem to either forget I have it or struggle with how to use it on my cards. So I went back out to Pinterest and found examples of cards that used both DSP as well as the Spooky Fun bundle I’ve been spotlighting this week.

Confession time, though. I did not buy this year’s Halloween Night Specialty DSP. Since I don’t use it very much, I still had quite a bit left over from last year (I really need to get better about that!), so I decided to just use last year’s DSP on these cards. Of course, it could easily be substituted with the new DSP, which is actually really, really cute.

This first one is a small paneled Halloween night scene using the thinlits attached to the front of a card with one small strip of DSP in the background. Subtle but affective. Isn’t the spider in the corner cute?!? (This is the only way I like spiders!)


Trying to use more DSP, I cut strips on the next card to make the background. The one small strip of that beautiful Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper sets off the sentiment just right, don’t you think?


This final card was copied directly out of the holiday catalog (p. 52), but instead of a bag, I made it into a card.


Be sure to come back and visit.  Next time I will feature another stamp set from the annual catalog.

Until next time…keep on crafting!!
