This challenge has pushed me out of my comfort zone as I’ve never made a steampunk card and my style is usually very CAS, so this card has way more elements to it than usual.
Firstly I smooshed some orange and green watercolours onto my panel, then black embossed the cat from Stampers Anonymous called ‘Mister Meow Meow & Tweets Mcgee’. I love how proper this cat looks and added a monocle filled with crystal effects to look like glass.
Next I stamped some texture with a stamp from Stampin Up ‘Playful backgrounds’ and a sentiment from Altenew ‘Bad Days Happen’. It then needed just a bit more, so I added a die cut of gears from Stampin Up ‘Geared Up Garage’ and a clock face, spoon and fork that have been in my craft stash for many, many years.
I’m pretty pleased with how this card worked out for a first go at steampunk. Why don’t you come join in the fun; check out the blog for all the other amazing creations from the SOSS designers.
I loved the FMS sketch and used 3 critters (including a bird) from the Paper Smooches set ‘chubby chums’ that I watercoloured, fussy cut out and added in place of the circles in the sketch. The sentiment is from Stampin Up ‘itty bitty birthdays’ and the striped DSP is from a MFT 6×6 pack called ‘black & white stripes’.
I got this new set from Stampin up called ‘Free as a bird’ that is due to be released in the new 2019/20 SU catty and I think it is fabulous. I used the matching DSP ‘Bird Ballad’, double stitched nested dies along with my woodgrain embossing folder and my Stampin Blends for colouring in the stamped images.
I used a stamp set I’ve had for ages from Papertrey Ink called ‘Uncorked’. It’s got lots of great wine glass and bottle images along with some fab sentiments. For my card I went a tad snarky! I used a few of my Catherine Pooler Design inks from the Spa Collection.
Well that’s it for today – thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
My card today uses a stamp from Darkroom Door called ‘Guitar’ . I stamped it with some Versafine black ink and then coloured the guitar with my cherry cobbler stampin blends. I then added some chrystal effects to make the guitar super shiny and the card was done.

I had the perfect stamp from Unity Stamps called ‘WTF Fairy’ and the sentiment is from the add on set ‘Your Fairy Godmother’. To colour my fairy, I scribbled my Stampin Up markers in the PP colours on my craft matt and then used my water brush to roughly colour her in. I added some gold to her crown and wings. I mounted my panel on some black and white patterned DSP and then onto a black card base. The sentiment is popped up with dimensionals.
I know exactly which friend is getting this card! Thanks for looking and have a great day.
Well it’s Mother’s Day here in Australia; I’ve had beakfast in bed and received some lovely goodies from Miss K and the hubby; now I’m getting a bit of crafting time before we head off to see The Hustle at Doncaster Gold Class.
I used a layered floral cover die set from Altenew, which is sponged with Catherine Pooler Inks in Roe pettal and Eucalyptus. The sentiment is also from Altenew ‘Label love’. I mounted both dies onto a black card base to really make it pop.
I made an alcohil ink background with my AI Pearls, added some silver foil and then die cut the number 16 from the AI panel and popped it up in a circle window. I stamped the sentiment in Momento black in. The die and sentiment is from Stampin Up ‘Number of years’.
This card was super quick to make. I used some Stampin Up papers in rainbow colours cut into 2cm pieces and attache them to my card base in rough overlapping style. I heat embossed the setiment from CAS-ual Frodays ‘Shenanigans’. I added a trio of vellum daisies with some bling to their centres and the card was done.
My card today uses a stamp set I got as a gift from a friend in Adelaide and I can’t get enought of those little piggies. They have the most adorable expressions. My sentiment is from Hero Arts ‘Snarky Mix & Match Messages’ and is perfect for someone who’s about to turn a big ZERO birthday! I added the black splatters for a bit of a piggy look!

Well, this month is we have another challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stamping challenge blog with an optional twist to include snowflakes.
For my card, I created an emboss resit background with a snowflake card from Kanban ‘Vintage snowflakes’ and Distress Oxide inks. I added a little bit of gold thread to provide some balance to the top of the card.
