Flight of Fancy, Banner Year, Halloween Card. 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I bought the new "Flight of Fancy" set because it has three seasons in it, Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day. Plus the Valentine's Day image could be used on an anniversary card. The set looked easy enough to play with. There was no die cut but the images can be stamped without having to be cut out. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. On top of it I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magic in This Night" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I also cut a 4" x 1-3/4" piece of DSP from the same pack. I layered that piece on a 4" x 2" piece of Basic Black card stock. I centered that piece on the front of the card and set it in place using tape.

I die cut the Whisper White piece using the second largest "Stitched Nested Labels" die.  I stamped  the witch from the "Flight of Fancy" set using black Memento ink. I had taped off the swoosh marks from the back of the broom. It made the image too long for the card. It would have fit but it would have been SO close to both sides, so I thought masking it would be better. I do like how she looks without the swoosh marks. 

The words are from the "Banner Year" set and were stamped using Cajun Craze ink.

I colored the broom bristles, wand, stars and moons in her clothes and the moon using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen.

Then I colored in her face and hands using the light Petal Pink Blends pen. I gave her a little blushed cheeks using the dark Petal Pink Blends pen.

The tie on the broom was colored in using the light Cajun Craze Blends pen. And the broom handle was colored in using the light Soft Suede Blends pen.

The mouse was colored in using the light Smoky Slate Blends pen and so was her hair.

Her clothes and hat were colored in using the dark Blackberry Bliss Blends pen. 

I added Wink of Stella to the moon, wand tip, and the yellow in her clothes and hat.  I did fussy cut out a moon, only because I had an extra one from fussy cutting the whole image and deciding not to use it. So I colored it in and set it on top of the other moon using a half a tiny Dimensional. I used Wink of Stella on it to give it a little shimmer. 

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.

I think it turned out well. I am not fond of the Halloween DSP but I will manage to work with it from now until Halloween. I won't be ordering anything more until January. I need to play with what I have.

This was a fun card to make and I think it turned out well.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by and have a look today,
