Here I am today with the Steampunk Style Birthday Card I made for my nephew's 16th Birthday. I used lots of different stamps for this project. But, the main images are from the Victorian Inventions Set from Blockheads Paper Arts. I also used some older Stampin' Up stamps and some numbers. The envelope is decorated too.
Basically, I just stamped the images on a piece of Crushed Curry CS (Stampin' Up) until I liked what I had. I stamped the Flying Machine on cream CS and cut parts of it out and layered over the image. The inks: Vintage Sepia -VersaFine, Rhubarb Stalk (Memento), Vintage Photo Distress (Ranger), and Crushed Curry (SU). I stamped on a metal trimmed tag and added a brad to it. The tag was attached with a large glue dot.
This is what the inside looks like. I stamped the flying machine (Blockheads) again and the speckled stamp (SU).
Some Super Fun Challenges for Steampunk Birthday:
A lota Rubber: Circles -I used a circle tag and stamped lots of circular shapes.
Artistic Stamper: use Hot colors
Desert Island Crafts: Pick three from list-my picks: Steampunk, clocks, collage
Sweet Stampin: One for the boys
Paper-Crafting Journey: Male cards
Gingersnap Creations: gears, cogs, and watch parts
I will be back tomorrow with two graduation cards. And, my gosh, I have to get those out in the mail today! It is getting kind of late for grad cards. But, I am sure someone may need a few yet this year. See you tomorrow. Love ya.
