Because the September Paper Pumpkin kit was so full of goodies, I decided to take advantage of all the components I wouldn't be using, and created this card. 

The witch's hat was one of the stamps that came in the kit, as was the jack-o-lantern face on the pumpkin. The black flowers and the squiggly piece were also part of the kit. 

I thought it all looked cute against one of the plaids from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper pack, found on page 57 of the mini catalog.

Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Smoky Slate cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.

Add a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic Black cardstock to this card base.

On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the witch hat in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using Stampin' Blends or markers of your choice, color the hat as you wish.

Use the die from the Stitched So Sweetly set to cut out the witch hat.

From the September Paper Pumpkin kit, add two black flowers and the swirly piece to the die cut piece. With a marker, add purple to the centers of the black flowers.

Add this piece to the largest of the curly dies from the Ornate Frames set, which had been cut from black cardstock.

Cut a seasonal looking plaid from the Plaid Tidings DSP to 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". Using black ink, stamp the Halloween sentiment from the Paper Pumpkin kit centered about a quarter inch from the bottom. Add this plaid piece to the black on the card base.

Using a few Stampin' Dimensionals, add the hat piece above the sentiment.
