Sugar Creek Hollow......


Afternoon peeps hope you are all well, today sees the start of another challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow, this week the theme is Steampunk .......seems ages since I did anything steampunky...hmmm wonder if that is a word, I was inspired by the backgroud paper that I used which is from Graphic 45, I love corsets although they must have been painful to wear mind you I think I could do with one to hold my love handles in......due to eating far too much chocolate.
The stamp I used is by B Line and its a double sided one, for the background of the corset I used a cog stamp from The Artistic Stamper and masked the corset image.The steampunk flower stamps are also by the Artistic Stamper, I embossed these with copper and layered them up using sprockets and gears.

Wow hun, this is just gorgeous! Love that corset stamp. I've really gotta try my hand on a steampunk card too! I just bought the T.H. gadget gears die so that should work I think? Hugs, Frea

Absolutely fabulous....love the gears stamped on the flowers and your bg. I need one of those corsets as well, lol, but don't think I could stand it long. Hope you have had a great week so far, don't work too hard. I am getting ready to turn my MIL's room back into a guest room, so I am getting ready to strip wallpaper and paint after a few remodeling steps on the closet.

What a stunning card!! I love all of the metal embossing. It really makes the card fit the challenge!! So glad that corsets are not in fashion anymore. I can't say that I would have ever wanted to wear one! Ugghh.
Thanks so much for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
