Steampunked Frame

Hello everyone - it is lovely to see you - as always!  For those of you who may remember my UFO pile in my last post (you can see it here)- I am happy to show you one of the cards I have created using one of the UFOs - unfinished objects that is!  LOL!

I used this wonderful SteamPunk Frame from Delicious Doodles - I won it and 4 other divine digis in the Raise the Bar Challenge - I hae been waiting for an opportunity to use it!

I printed the image twice and cut out the cogs, inking them, popping them  up onto the original image on foam tape for that added dimension.  Corrugated card and old gold brads blend beautifully.

The hardware is from my stash and works so well with the feel of the card!

Bakers Twine is a new FAVOURITE of mine (believe me the list is long!!)  I had a little piece in my stash and am using it at every opportunity.

The sentiment and image are from Darkroom Door - a set my DH gave me for Christmas - I don't use it enough, but I am sure it will see the light of day more often after this card!

One last photo to show you the dimension - I am very happy with my first attempt at SteamPunk - a style I am going to explore more - any advice would be most welcome!

This card is for the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles - Anything Goes
Fashionista Friday - Earth Day - Recycle, Reuse or Renew - Corrugated card
Simply Create - Time to Rock the Metal
Shelly's Images - Show Us What You Got
Creative Craft World - Recycle Something - Corrugated card
Alys Sunday Challenge - Bakers Twine
I Did It Creations - I image, 2 Papers, 3 Embellishments
Sparkle's Forum - Anything Goes

Thanks you for visiting with me today - I hope you are enjoying the Easter break - here in Australia it is ANZAC Day, which is a public holiday both here and New Zealand.  Today we remember the ANZAC soldiers and pray for those still serving overseas

  It is five day weekend for most people here.....plenty of time for those who have overindulged in treats to recover! LOL!
God bless you!


  1. This is a great card, Linda, although I can't say it's a style I'll be exploring any time soon. You always do a good job on your projects and no one would know it's a new style or a troublesome design for you! Way to go!
