Holiday Season Steampunk!


Materials used:
Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko - StazOn Jet Black, Blazing Red, Olive Green, Cactus Green and Walnut Ink Crystals
Memory Box Dies - Noel Tiles, Antique Gear Set

May Arts - Ribbon and Twine

Other materials used - White card and white mount-board. Glue and double sided sticky pads

Begin by die-cutting your shapes from card and cutting your mount-board. I cut my mount-board to resemble tags and you will need two of them.
Mount-board is very thick so when you use thin dies it embosses the design rather than cutting it out. Use the Memory Box Antique Gears die to emboss into your mount-board. When that is done color the surface using Walnut Ink Crystals and blot with water to create an aged effect. Use a weaker solution of the Walnut Ink on your Noel Tiles and use StazOn inks to color the other die-cut pieces.
Assemble using double sided sticky pads and glue and join together using May Arts Ribbon and Twine.


  1. Great tips today, love your longer post and seeing your process. Looks absolutely wonderful:-) xxx

  2. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites
    I stumbleupon every day. It will always be useful to read through content
    from other authors and practice a little something from their web sites.
