Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps New Release Party


Happy Saturday Dear Friends!!!  We are celebrating the release of Prickely Pear’s new Valentine and Steampunk collection with a three-day blog hop. Today is the last day of the Hop, but you still have time to Hop along with us for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Prickely Pear shop. 

I am so excited that Prickley Pear has introduced a whole line of Steampunk Stamps.  This is my very first Steampunk inspired card and I have to say I am loving playing with the gears and gadgets and the Steampunk Navigator is my favorite stamp in the line!!

 I stamped several different Steampunk Stamps onto cardstock with Versamark Ink and embossed the images with gold embossing powder.  I fussy cut the images to use as embellishments on my card.
I also stamped the Glitz Design Beautiful Dreamer Polka background paper with several different Steampunk Stamps in black to add to the Steampunk theme.  I added some Glitz Design Dance in Sunshine Whatnots and some metal embellishments that go so well with the Steampunk Theme.
I printed out the inside of the card on my computer and added clock hands and another gear to support the theme.  I had a lot of fun incorporating the Steampunk theme into my Shabby Chic style!  There are no rules....just have fun and go with it!!

You will have until Sunday to leave your comments on each blog, and a winner will be drawn and announced on the Prickely Pear blog on Monday.  The next stop in the Hop is
and if you missed Thursday and Friday's posts you still have time to comment on them as well!
I'll be back on Sunday with my Prickley Pear Monthly Sketch Challenge!
Good Luck and Happy Stamping!!
