Steampunk Hoppin'


Hello!  I am so happy you made it all the way to my blog along this fantastic blog hop featuring the awesome digital  stamp creations from Copic Marker Scrapbooking.  If you stumbled upon my blog by accident and want to start from the very beginning...hop on back to the beginning by going HERE.  And...you are going to want to because at each of the blogs there is a Secret Letter (sometimes not so secret) and if you put them all together and leave some comment love at each blog along the way...you can have a complete set of these fantastic images...all yours...for the big ol' price of Nuthin'.  Yes, that be true. Just email Colleen the word...and she will send those out to you via email.  Here is a list of all the blogs...you don't want to get lost!

What is steampunk?  Well, if you haven't figured that out by now, I will give you my interpretation.  I think of it as a genre that is sort of like Jules Vernes meets Wild, Wild West, meets the Victorian era.  Mechanical, Sci-fi and a little bit gothic.  I love it!  And here is what I created with all of the images that can be yours too!
I think this tag/card turned out to be my favorite.  I did a lot of experimentation with Perfect Pearls and resist stamping.  I am going to use this for the perfect graduation card!

this incorporated 2 of the stamps available.  I thought they made a nice couple together.

I think she is a little sassy and stylin.

I have a Victorian dollhouse that I have been trying to build for a few years now.  This house reminds me of it so much.  I also think...colored the right way, this would make an awesome Halloween house come October!

And really...a mechanical owl really just says it all.
We hope you loved our Steampunk Blog Hop.  Be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the blogs and collect your letters (as in mine...it would be the letter "N") to be eligible for the free set of Steampunk Stamps from Copic Marker Scrapbooking.  Don't forget...one very lucky winner will also receive a brand new set of the new Sketch Marker colors that were just released!!  Happy Hopping Everyone!!
