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   :-)

OMG! I love the "moonlighting" technique you did on this with the brayer and moon mask! Would demo this technique at one of our upcoming meetings?

Beautiful! I'm doing a side step card for my stamp club but it's just a slight variation from Julie's card.
