Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

Today, I’m over on the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers blog as their guest designer as I was crowned Queen of their N is for Nerd challenge, so I get to play along this week with their I is for Ironmongery (steampunk) challenge.

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.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. This is a remarkable first steampunk creation! Also, this is why we never throw anything away, right – the clock face, spoon and fork add the extra perfect element to this classy card. I think that cat was destined to be steampunk. Thanks for being our steampunk queen!
