What came from the stacks

It's only been recently that I've understood what the big deal about steampunk was.  For quite a while I thought it was crazy and strange looking, but I'm now starting to see the appeal of the style - particularly the romanticized and feminine form that steampunk can take when combined with girlie details.  The card below is what was made from the stack of items I showed you yesterday.

Materials Used:
  • Lilac, burgundy, black, and white card stock
  • Steampunk Alyssa digi (by me) part tomorrow's release
  • Words/Sentiments printed from my computer
  • Authentique Collection: Uncommon
  • Martha Stewart Around the Edge punch
  • Homemade glimmer mist: gold, silver and copper painted on the gears.  Lilac on the "print" background, and pearl on the floral background.
  • StazOn ink in Jet Black
  • eyelets  from the sewing section
  • Bazzill Basics Paper self adhesive gems
  • Random Adhesives


  1. Beautiful! Love the use of eyelets, flowers and gears with the girly steampunk image.

  2. Great card! I just got into Steampunk recently too. Love it! Your card is so pretty!

  3. Oh, now this is more like it.....I do like some steampunk, but a lot of it is too far out, and strange for my taste....I don't do strange...yep...I actually said that..haa!
    Love the home-made mists....the whole look is fabulous...can't wait to see the release, in full!

  4. Popped back to see if you finished the card on your WOYWW desk, Love the steampunk!

  5. Great card. Thanks for joining us at Papertake weekly.
