Halloween "Side Step" Card

I found this wonderful tutorial on my Fabulous Upline's Blog Julie Davison for the "Side Step" Card.
I love the House of Haunts Stamp Set and thought it would look awesome on the Side Step.
The House and the Owl in the tree were stamped with Versamark added Black Embossing Powder and heated.  On the Owl I used a 1" Circle punch on a post it note to make a mask for the moon. 
I used a 1 3/8 inch mask for the moon on the house.  I then brayered both with Summer Sun. 
Leaving the mask on the Owl I sponged around the edges first with Pumpkin Pie (used Sponge Daubers),
Creamy Carmel.  Did the same with the House but added Chocolate Chip as my last layer.  Once
everything was sponged I removed the post-it notes and layered onto Only Orange Cardstock.
Pumpkins are stamped with Only Orange onto Summer Sun cardstock.  Happy Halloween was
stamped with Versamark and White Embossing Powder.  The finishing touch is the Spider from
Autumn Apparitions.  Stamped in Versamark and Black EP then punched out with the 1/2" circle
punch and applied to a Build-A-Brad.  I really had fun making this card!
Thanks for taking time out of your busy life to visit my blog.
Have a great weekend   :-)

Saturday Stamp Class at our Local Stamp Store!

Awesome Class today at Prairie Art Stamps & Supplies in Springfield, Illinois.  The Class was given by the Wonderful Wendy Vecchi!  She is a demo artist for Ranger Industries, she designs her own line of stamps "Studio 490" and she is on the Design Team for Maya Road and tim holtz-idea-ology.  This project uses Wendy's Studio 490 stamps and tim holtz Grunge Board & Paper, Distress Ink & Stickles.  Yes, that rose is made out of paper!  What a fun class, I love learning new techniques.  Due to Stampin' Ups new Demonstrator Agreement this will probably be the last time I can share info about other companies products.  I will be able to show you what I have done but cannot share product info because I am a Demonstrator.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Thanks for stopping by  :-)

Winter Post

Hello Everyone!  Just trying to use up some scraps as I hate to see paper go to waste when it is so beautiful!
I was going for the "Vintage" look and I really like the stamp from the Hostess Set - Christmas Punch as it has that vintage flair.  The base of the card is Kraft and I sponged Close to Cocoa along the edges as I did with all the paper on this card.  I used Versamark and stamped some snowflakes on the inside. 
 Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by :-)
