S is for Steampunk at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

Steampunk is not one of my stronger venues, but you have to step up to the plate and stare that  ball down. I gathered stock from my stash, A Tim Holtz clear set Virtual; artistry, Paper Journey by Plaid ($1.97 in a clearance store) , a gears embossing folder, a punch (found out you have to step on it to make it work)  the key is a  Marianne die/
The Car and Watch are embossed with copper, fussy cut and then popped up.
Even in the close-up you can’t see the copper, or maybe it’s my eyes, things are certainly very blurry but so far I’m managing.
The stamp I wanted to use for the inside was at home, brought it with me and now can finish the  inside. It reads…. Another 365 day trip around the sun.
Thanks for stopping by today head over to The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and check out the rules and the awesome cards the rest of the team have done.

Steampunk is not my thing either but I must say you did a fabulous job with this! Looks great! Love your die cuts and embossing folder! I've got a couple of punches you have to step on too LOL!

Lindsey said...

Look at all these perfect elements you had just waiting in your stash! I think you are secretly into steampunk after all, Barb. ;) Love the card!

Barb,you stepped up to the plate, stared the ball down and KNOCKED it outta the park!!! This is a fan-freakin-tastic steampunk card!!!

You may have felt like you struggled with it, but it turned out perfect! LOVE this. (And a punch you have to step on? SHEESH no thank you!)

I second Jessi with the step-punch. It sounds suspiciously like exercise and step aerobics. I love the stamped and embossed paper

Tracy said...

such a great card, I like vintage/steampunk elements.
Some of those punches are hard on the hands.
I dropped one of my Martha Stewart punches and it broke..but I McGiver'd it and I can still use it ;)

Chris Dring said...

I'll pass also on the step on punch, but your card looks amazing as always!
