Steampunk Xmas Cards
Last year I waited until the very last minute and stressed out over my xmas cards. This year I have had some ideas in the works for a while. Now two months before Christmas I have some finished! I purchased this main stamp at Michael's after Christmas last year. It was a wooden backed stamp which I am trying to avoid for storage reasons but it was so cool, I had to have it! I used Tim Holtz spinners, american craft buttons, two different Creative Memories snowflake punches, and a new Stampin Up cling set Clockworks to make the gear embellishments. Ribbon and brads from Hobby Lobby. Bayou Blue Stampin Up ink and I think an old Creative Memories dusty blue cardstock. The smallest snowflakes are from a snowflake corner punch I found in my collection. I had the spinner and tree done for a while it was just today I decided my new SU set would make great embellishments and I went searching for some snowflake punches. I misted the snowflakes and gears with Ranger butterscotch and a silver glimmer mist to recreate the distress on the patterned paper which I believe is basic grey.
