Steampunk story book.

At our last craft and natter our friend Barry gave each of us three die cut pages to decorate so after a brief panic I decided on steampunk and used printed images,stamps and diecuts to decorate the pages,I thought a dictionary definition of Steampunk was a good centrepiece for the front page. At the moment I'm not doing too much in the craft line as I'm getting ready for my upcoming holiday,and when we get home the first job is to TIDY the craft room!! hopefully.

A 'Girly' Christmas

Another christmas card for my stash, this one to fit in with the Winter Wonderland challenge with the theme 'Girly', well this LOTV stamp is definitely my favourite girly for this christmas even tho' I've only used her once before.

Anything CAS goes !!

This is the theme for week 33 of the Less is More challenge so I'm hoping that my embossed and diecut embellished chrismas card will fit the bill, it does have plenty of white space!

The Inventor!

Another 'mild' steampunk card, made for a crafting friend, I was worried that she would think it too masculine so before I sent it ( and after i'd taken the photo) I added some bling to the cogs in the form of gems and I think it feminised it a little.

Man Cards!!

I'm off to what looks like being the windy and wet north west for a few days and I've packed a few cards for Viv's charity box, she is always short of 'man cards' so I've made a couple using my steampunk stamps and papers, they aren't as dark as they look in the photo's, and yes you can see 'peel offs' they are HOTP steampunk dazzles that came in the paper kit - waste not want not!!

Mellow Yellow

We were given a choice of items to make this months St Lukes charity card challenge, I chose - patterned paper,punches/diecuts, ribbon and gems.My colour scheme of yellow with a touch of grey isn't seen very often but I'd recently bought some backing papers that colour so was 'inspired'.

Steampunk card !

Well fairly mild steampunk I think, I didn't like it at all when I first saw it but lately, with the more feminine papers and things, I've quite taken to it and enjoy mixing the masculine and feminine.This card is made using the Tim Holtz bodyform die, the wings and crown are also Tim's. The flower was made from regular brown paper stamped with a paper Artsy flower stamp and crumpled to give it the grungey look.
I'm entering the card into cr84fn color challenge - lt blue, turquoise and nuetral.
gettingcricky challenge - winged things.
Craft your days away - make your own flowers.

Travel Journal

This is what Jan and I sidetracked onto on our recent holiday, we'd seen the papers, and what had been made with them, when we visited the local craft store and decided to have a go - this is my Journal made with my next holiday in mind. I added pockets using the papers and extra pages using Kraft card.
