No rules, lets play!

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday! I am so happy to show the first card I made as a DT member of Simon Says Stamp and Show! Someone pinch me now! LOL! What a great way to start this adventure without any rules! Because this week it's anything goes. I made this birthday card for my colleague Marcel. He is currently on vacation, so I'll give him the card when he gets back.

I had a lunch bag laying around and I thought it was perfect to use for this challenge. I knew immediately that I wanted to mix things up. I wanted to make a funky fresh steampunk card.
On the flap I've used the On the Edge Steampunk die, and I've given it a bright yellow color. The letters I've cut out with my Silhouette Cameo, stamped them with Check plate stamp and outlined them with a white gel pen.



The background is stamped with Peacock Feathers and I randomly put some pieces of tissue tape. Of course I had to use my favorite zigzag punch! And for the steampunk feel I added some sprocket gears.


Recently I got the Diamond Plate & Riveted Metal embossing folders and this was the perfect time to use them! It was so much fun to use them with bright colors! I also had the chance to use my new Remnants Stamp set. It's such a gorgeous stamp set! Love it!! Need to use it more! For the middle part I used soft colors so I could write on it.

I think it's super cool to see steampunk in these bright colors. It's such a different look and I love it!
Can you imagine how it would look if it was all in brown tones with black?


To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra
