Creepy Cute Kids are Steamy!

Hi BPM Stamping Fans!

Wow it's September already - we are well over half way through the year!
Hope you have all had some time for crafting and playing with you BM Rubber Stamps???

I also hope you are enjoying our monthly theme? 
I love "Steampunk" - the combination of Vintage and Sci-Fi and Fantasy and Technology all rolled into one - great for the imagination!

Today I'm sharing a fun "Steampunk" creation using "non" Steampunk Stamps and turning them into Steampunk!!!

For those of you who know me you know I love to use my stamps for as many things as possible - not just for the "theme" they are made for - great way to get the most value when purchasing stamps!

I'm using new stamps by "DeadSeaToons" - Creepy Cute Kids and just by "adding" a Steampunk "Top Hat" I now have stamps to suit the theme! You can use a digi top hat or a collage image to any stamp to turn into a "steamy" design!

White Card & Black Ink Pad
Colouring Mediums of your choice
Steampunk Gears & Cogs Die Cuts or Stencils
Gesso or Texture Paste
Base Cards or Tags plus old book pages
Water Colour Crayons
Embossing Ink and Embossing Powders
General: gel medium, glue stick, scissors, tape, glue, spatula, heat tool


Stamp your images onto white cardstock with black ink and colour with your favourite mediums. Fussy cut. Print your digi "Top Hat" onto card, colour and fussy cut OR you can use a collage top hat! Adhere your "top hat" to your stamped character.

Next prepare your base card. Cover the entire base card with torn pieces of book pages and allow to dry.

Die cut your "gears" and adhere to the base card and add add a thin layer of gesso all over the base card alternatively use thick gesso or texture paste through a steampunk stencil if you don't have a steampunk style die cut. Allow to dry.

Add your focal stamps and embellishments and adhere to card base.

Note: you can make a greeting card base, postcard, tag or even ATC using this process!

Thanks for joining me today and remember:

"Keep Calm and Wear a Top Hat"
