Steampunk Halloween

Hello Blank Page Muse Fans!

This is my first blog post as a new Design Team Member for BPM. I am so excited to be part of the team and to share my creations using BPM stamps and other products!

Halloween is just around the corner and with the current pandemic, there won’t be too many parties this year. Wouldn’t your friends just love to get a Halloween card from you? Today I am sharing my Happy Halloween steampunk card. This card is perfect for either a male or female friend. I hope this inspires you to join our monthly challenge theme, "Steampunk."



Start by stamping and coloring your pumpkin stamp. I used a stamp positioner and lined the bottom with a piece of craft foam instead of gluing the foam on my stamp. I put a piece of cardstock on the foam to keep the foam clean.

*Place some washi tape on the back of the stamp to adhere it to the cover of the stamp positioner. Most stamp positioners use magnets to hold your paper in place while stamping. By sandwiching them in painters tape, makes for easy placement of the magnets as needed.

Used distress inks to color a piece of white cardstock before cutting out the gears. 
I am using my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the gears, but you can use metal dies or a hand punch.  

Next, cut out two more gears, bigger than the others. 
Then color them in with your distress inks. 

Cut out the cardstock and patterned paper to fit on a 6” x 6” card.
  My patterned paper already had a sentiment, but you can stamp or write your own. 

Adhere everything to the card with liquid glue and use foam squares to add dimension to the pumpkin. Add a fun charm with a bit of twine.


I took the extra gears and I glued them to the inside of the card along with a strip of 
patterned paper. 

Lastly, I added some bats I found in my craft stash to the card and I accented all the gears with a little bit of glitter from the Wink of Stella. 

I hope this card inspires you to make a steampunk card and enter this month’s challenge! Thank you for visiting!
