I recently ordered the beautiful Steampunk Christmas set from Chocolate Baroque which had been on my wish list for a long time. My husband likes the Steampunk designs a lot, so I made this card for him.
The background is Dylusions Inks mopped up from my craft mat. The cog trees were stamped with Mowed Lawn DI. I stamped the bottom of the smaller tree around the edge. The larger tree in the centre was stamped with Cobalt Ink over another Dylusions inked piece of cardstock. I cut it out and then embossed the entire image with a Kaleidoscope powder. I coloured the cogs over top of the embossing with purple Smooch Ink.
Die- Spellbinder Sprightly Sprockets
You can see the sparkle better below but the photos are not doing it justice.
I used the gorgeous flowers also from the Steampunk Christmas set for the card below. This set has a lot to offer, for non-steampunk as well.
The background on the above card was created using Festive Berries and Mahogany Distress Inks using the acrylic block technique. I stamped the Holly edge from Christmas Edges and Joy with Seedless Preserves DI. The Holly Flourish is by Cheery Lyn.
The flowers were embossed with Bronze Metallic power, I blended Seedless Preserves and Mahogany Distress Inks to colour them. I cut them out, popped them up and added a large bling piece to the centers (which covered up the cog center as this card is not steampunk theme). I didn't have purple bling in this size but found that I could colour them with Alcohol ink.
Here is a look at the beautiful Steampunk Christmas A4 set.
I have one more card that I created recently with the beautiful New England Winter A5 set that I've had for a while, also by Chocolate Baroque. I love this house and enjoyed colouring it.
The background is Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks using the Acrylic block technique. I picked up drops of ink after drying. I stamped the corners from the New England Set with Evergreen Bough ink. The house, star and sentiment from Warm Christmas Greetings were stamped with Black Versafine Ink. I coloured the image with my Prisma Pencils, added red glitter to the ornaments on the tree and a little clear glitter here & there (hard to see in the photo).
Thanks for visiting and have a great day,
