Steam Punk Gears

Steam punck embossed

Steam Punk is an art form featuring images of industrialized steam powered machinery. Victorian Steam Punk features gears and cogs.  American West Steam Punk features trains.  The fictional inventions of Jules Verne conjure up images of Steam Punk. Western Steam Punk can be seen in the movie, “Wild, Wild West” with Will Smith and Kevin Kline.  The Sherlock Holmes movies with Robert Downey Jr. also features Steam Punk contraptions. 

Using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies is an easy way to create a steam punk- themed card. 

This is also great for a masculine-themed card!

Here's how:

1. Emboss 3” x 4” copper foil using the Big Shot, Big Shot Embossing Mats, and Garage Gears Thinlits Die.

Here is a photo of how I placed the gears on the copper foil:

Gears layout

The sandwich for embossing using the embossing mats is: Platform on Tab 1, clear cutting plate, blue embossing mat, card stock, thinlit face down, white embossing plate.  You can also place a card stock shim underneath the clear cutting plate to help with the embossing.   Run through a couple of times to get a good embossed image.

2. Sponge Merry Merlot ink on the embossed image.  Heat emboss using the heat tool and clear embossing powder.

3. Cut the copper foil into 1” strips.  Stamp the dots from Waterfront on the embossed image.  Heat emboss using the heat tool and black embossing powder.

4. Dab the edges of the strips in the Versamark.  Heat emboss parts using copper embossing powder. Heat other parts using black embossing powder.

5. Layer strips to 1 1/8” x 4 1/8” Basic Black matting. 

6. Stamp greeting from Country Road on the bottom of the Very Vanilla card base using Basic Black ink.

7. Attach to Basic Black card base.  Attach embossed strips using Dimensionals to pop them up.

Optional: Attach Very Vanilla card stock to inside of card.  Cut gears out of scrap pieces of copper foil or Basic Black card stock.  Dab pieces in Versamark and heat emboss using either black or copper embossing powder.  Attach to the inside of the card.

Tip: You are adding a lot of heat to the copper foil with the embossing steps.  The plastic backing on the foil paper may start to peel away.  Simply trim it off.  If you have trouble with the SNAIL adhesive sticking to the back of the foil, try using Tombow Multi-purpose Glue or Fine Tip Glue.

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Waterfront, Country Road

Ink: Versamark, Memento Black, Merry Merlot

Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Copper Foil

Accessories: Big Shot, Garage Gears Thinlits Die, Big Shot Embossing Mats, heat tool, clear, black and copper embossing powder, sponge, Dimensionals

Quilted Folded Iris Victorian Shoe by Kathy Cox

Kathy Cox quilted iris folded Victorial Shoe

Recently, I was contacted by quilter Kathy Cox who shared her beautiful quilted Iris Folded Victorian Shoe based on the Iris Folded Victorian Shoe I created way back in 2011!

And on top of that, she made it in purples!

Of course, my Victorian Shoe was Iris Folded with paper.

Iris Folded Shoe for blog

I was thrilled to see this work of art, and honored that I offered some inspiration.

Kathy says  that she had to rearrange the numbers since the Iris has to go in first with fabric quilting.

When asked if this was going to be a part of a larger quilt, Kathy said, "No it will not be part of a quilt. When I  made it, I had a rug mug in mind.  It is almost too small for a cup, but there is a little room to the left of the shoe.  My next one I will make a tad larger."

So exciting that Iris Folding can be translated into fabric quilting.

Thank you Kathy for sharing!

Ready to Layer and the Stamparatus

Basic Gray Real Red Ready to LayerBasic Gray, Real Red, Smoky Slate, and Gray Granite Ready to Layer

I've had the Ready to Layer stamp set for awhile, but I was a little apprehensive about using it until recently.

I really liked the look of the stamped image, but to be honest, I wasn't quite sure how to go about using the set.

You see, there are 4 images in the set that have to be aligned and stamped separately in different colors.

Ready to Layer

Although this is a photopolymer stamp set, and lining up and placing the stamps on a clear blocks was certainly doable, I knew the Stamparatus would be helpful to making this work.  But I was reluctant to give it a try.

Well, I finally got the set out and figured out how to position and line up the stamps in the Stamparatus for perfect stamping every time.

It really is easy to do.  And once you've got the stamps positioned on the hinged plates of the Stamparatus, you can stamp numerous images to use on future projects, cleaning and changing colors in between each one.

I've created a quick tutorial in a pdf format that hopefully will help you.

Some basic tips for using this set:

There are four stamps in the Ready to Layer photopolymer stamp set.  You will use all four stamps, plus both hinged plates that come with the Stamparatus.

You will need four colors, one for each stamp.  Use the darkest color for stamp #1.

The plastic packaging has printed numbers, 1-4, next to each stamp. Once you remove the stamps from the packaging, write its number on the front upper left corner of the stamp using a Sharpie pen.

Here are some color possibilities:

Copper Embossed Home To Roost

Home to roost

Sale-A-Bration ends just days away on March 31!

(For every $50 spent in catalog merchandise, you can choose a free SAB item!)

One of the great Level 1 product choices is the fun Home to Roost stamp set.

I paired the rooster in the stamp set with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder, both embossed in copper for a rustic metallic look.

I swiped Versamark inside the folder (on the side with the word Sizzix on the front so I would get a raised versus an indented image) then inserted a piece of Basic Black card stock and ran it through the Big Shot.

Then, I added copper embossing powder and heat embossed it with a heat tool.

I also dabbed the edges of the card front in Versamark and heat embossed them with black and copper embossing powders.

I swiped a scrap piece of Basic Black card stock with the Embossing Buddy, then stamped the rooster in Versamark.  I heat embossed him using copper embossing powder.

I then punched him using my 2 1/4" circle punch and matted it to a piece of copper foil paper punched using my 2 1/2" circle punch.

The edges of the copper foil circle were dabbed in Versamark and heat embossed using copper embossing powder.

Don't miss out on the last days of Sale-A-Bration!

It's a great time to stock out and earn some free goodies!

One of the great Level 1 product choices is the pretty Country Floral Embossing Folder, perfect for your spring creations.

I decided to add a metallic look to the embossing for the 2 creations above.

I swiped Versamark inside the folder, then inserted a piece of copper foil paper and ran it through the Big Shot.

Then, I added black embossing powder and heat embossed it with a heat tool.

I also dabbed the edges of the copper foil in Versamark and heat embossed them with black and copper embossing powders.

The greeting is from another Level1 SAB choice, Home to Roost.

It was heat embossed on a piece of Basic Black card stock using copper embossing powder.

I matted it to a piece of copper foil that the edges were heat embossed with black and copper embossing powders.

For the first card, I swiped the Versamark on the inside of the folder with the raised embossing (the side with the word Sizzix on the front). 

For the second card, I swiped the Versamark on the other side of the folder with the indented embossing.

Two different looks made with one technique and one embossing folder.
