New At SU August Blog Hop Mini Catalog Premier

It's time to hop along with the New At SU August Blog Hop as we showcase products in the New August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
I love Halloween so I thought I would share a fun card design created with the Flight of Fancy stamp set (item #153410), one of the hidden gems in this new catalog. I paired it with the amazing Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (item #153517) to create a spooky background and added the Ghoulish Goodies stamp set (item #153362) for the sentiment. 
To create this Halloween card, I started with Pretty Peacock cardstock for the card base and I added a layer of the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper for the background. I wanted my card design to be colorful while still reflecting a fun, spooky feeling. I added a piece of the new 1 1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon (item #153550) around the center of the background to add some texture to the design. 
The focal design was created by die cutting a piece of Whisper White cardstock with one of the scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690), one of my favorite die sets in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I stamped the witch image from the Flight of Fancy stamp set onto the die cut rectangle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I sponged the background using a variety of  Classic ink pad colors including Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Seaside Spray and Misty Moonlight, using Sponge Daubers to blend the colors together to create an eerie sky. 
I stamped the witch image a second time onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut around the moon, witch and broomstick. I colored the image using a variety of Stampin' Blends Marker including Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry, Light Soft Sea Foam, Light Cinnamon Cider, Light and Dark Cajun Craze and Light and Dark Daffodil Delight. I added the witch and moon images to the sponged layer with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop them up. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Ghoulish Goodies stamp set with Silver Embossing Powder to the top left corner. This fun Halloween card is a wonderful way to brighten someone's day and a great example of how you can mix and match products in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to look at the hidden gems in this new catalog to help you with your holiday projects. You will be amazed and the variety of ways you can mix and match the products to create wonderful projects.
