I am back with my first tutorial for Scrapmixers. I am going to show you how to create a layered steampunk card.
I used a selection of Leli-bot Steampunk papers and the butterfly stamp by Gecko Galz
First cover the card with patterned paper and then cut a strip off another sheet. Use a boarder punch to create a lacy edge.
Cut out a square using nesting dies and adhere to card.
Colour your stamp in with marker pens and adhere to center of square
I used the First Edition Haberdashery Die Set and cut out the scissors using the gold gilded paper from the Botanical notes paper pad. I stuck this into the center of the butterfly.
Next i die-cut some small cogs and adhered them to the butterfly wings and around the card.
Add a sentiment
Finish off the card by adding a few small buttons down the center of the butterfly. I lined them up by size so they formed the body of the butterfly.
Here is the final card.
Here are a few close ups of the topper so you can see how i put it together.
Thank you for visiting
An amazing steampunk themed card by our talented designer Katie.
Thank you Katie for this amazing technique/card tutorial.
A butterfly reminds me of freedom. When do you feel yourself free?
For me it must be creating. I transfer in the world of creativity and create like there are no boundaries. No Good or Wrong way to make a card/mini-album/layout etc. I can express myself and SHARE my work/ my story with the world. The most important for me now is to inspire all scrapmixers. You are a scrapmixer too. Remember that.
While creating I am aware of my freedom. Doing what I love.
I'm looking back occasionally at my designs I've created and the stories I told and I see a pattern. Of who I am, what I want....
While creating, I'm lifting my creativity to the unlimited and I get to know what I think it's important to tell. That way I learn myself. I love to learn, to paint, to create but also to teach.
Who are you? What pattern do you see in your work and the stories you tell? What/Who is/are important to you?
Did you forget to tell stories about someone who IS important to you but you never got to scrap a lot about him/her?
Well, I would say, look at your creations and scrapbook more about yourself....
