I made the top 1/2 of my card using MY DIGITAL STUDIO and used "real" Night Owl Designer Paper on the bottom portion (see pg 9 holiday mini catalog, item #123012), then tied it with Stampin' Up! Basic Black Satin Ribbon and layered it onto Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black Cardstock.

I've had lots of questions about the "witch hat" I made in MDS ... here is a tutorial for you .. these are the pieces I used in MDS and layered them all one on top of the next.

Tutorial owl witch hat-001

I stamped Spooky and punched it out with the Modern Label punch (pg 202, item #119849) and layered that onto a Scallop Oval punch out (pg 201, item #119856). I added a punched Bat to the top portion of the card too (pg 201, item #119279).

to make my Basic Black cardstock all shimmery, I sprayed it with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer paint (pg 195, item #116854) mixed with rubbing alcohol in a spritzer bottle.  Pretty.. don't you think!?  Order all your supplies ONLINE HERE anytime!

WOW!! What a great card! Thanks so much for sharing with us! I may have to "case" if that's okay!




Too cute!

Love the witch hat! Do you print your own MDS cards or send them to SU! to print? If you do print yourself, what printer do you use that accepts the weight of SU! cardstock? I haven't been able to find a printer that takes 80# cardstock.

Patty, These are adorable. I love the patterned paper bats and the owl's costume. I just posted a card with trick-or-treating owls dressed up like a ghost and a bat on my blog at I love the witch!!

This is awesome.. did you us MDS for the multiple sizes of bats?
Thanks for sharing..

This little witch is so cute! Question? What are the buttons on the fron t of the owl made from? I can't tell from the picture if they are brads or paper. TFS!
