Linday's Stamp Stuff Steampunk Tag


Wow! Say that three times fast! LOL I was in a Steampunk kind of mood today so I got out my Steampunk & Shipping Tags SVGs from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF and created this fun project using my cricut and SCAL. I cut the gears and the tag out of cream card stock. I colored the tag with distress ink and clear embossed the whole thing, then added vintage photo distress ink over it and wiped off the excess. Next, colored the gears with my Alcohol Ink Mixatives, distressed them with a piece of sandpaper and colored over each piece with vintage photo distress ink. They really look like metal gears, and they are just paper! I adhered them with pop dots, stamped the images and sentiment, added a ribbon and I was done. I think this will make a fun birthday tag for a guy, what do you think? Be sure to check out Lindsay's blog, Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog, and see what she has for you today and link up to the rest of her design team for more crafty inspiration!

I love that card, because I know my 6 year old son would be head over heels for it! He just loves
rusty old gears and stuff. Thanks for the inspiration! Your newest follower,
