Pin It Now!
One Sheet Wonder...Using a single sheet of Spice Cake DSP.  Here's the bunch of them...

 I tried my hand for the first time with a one sheet wonder - a dozen cards made with only one sheet of patterned paper! 
Cherry Cobbler CS, Spice Cake button, medallion in Pear Pizzaz, trimmed in Galaxy Glitter, XL Scallop punch,
Felt from new 2011 Holiday Mini

Close up of the Spice Cake button made into a pumpkin.  The 1-1/4" circle punch works perfectly in there, sponged with a little Pumpkin Pie ink, added some Early Espresso to give the pumpkin some shape.  Took a scrap piece of the DSP, punched leaves with Bird Punch, another skinny scrap was wrapped around a paper clip to make the curly cue trim, and a little hand cut stem from Early Espresso. 

Happy Halloween: see above shot for detail on embellishment.

Thank you note made with Top Note Big Shot die.
"Thanks" sentiment hand colored with Stampin' Write Marker from Hand Penned Holidays.
Random stamped leaves from Gently Falling.
One strip of DSP was cut lengthwise, then each strip was scored at 1/2" and 1", then pleated.
Attached the separate pieces at opposite ends of card.
Adhere top note piece with sticky strip at top and bottom, but with 2 Stampin' Dimensionals in the center so the pleats keep their depth.

Give Thanks card, using Hand Penned Holidays and Gently Falling.
Antique Brad added to anchor folded corner.

Give Thanks

Merry Christmas

Finally, here is the template I created to cut the DSP. 
It's rough, I know!  But all the pieces are labeled with the cards I made.  I hope you can make some, too!  Please let me know if you do!

Just think, you can do a whole workshop, or 144 cards with ONE pack of DSP.  It just requires a little creativity.  Get out your stash and see what you can create! 

Till then, have a Blessed and Creative Day!!!
