A bit of Steampunk for My Final Post on the Viva Las VegaStamps Design Team

My all time favorite stamps at Viva Las VegaStamps! is the wonderful collection of Steampunk. For my last post on this fantastic team I had to pull out some of my favorites! The Victorian BalloonFlying ManSteampunk Warrior and Nesting Gears

Lately I have seen a lot of tunnel cards in magazines and online.  I thought all the flying Steampunk contraptions would look great in one.  Here you can see the Victorian BalloonFlying Man and Man in Flying Machine inside the tunnel card.  They are stamped on a transparency and heat embossed with Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder. zA hint of color was added with Copics.   

The tunnel card is four 5 x 6 inch pieces of card stock for the front and back.  The front is cut out to create a 1 inch frame. The sides are scored to create an accordion between the back and front. Miracle Tape was used to construct the card. 

The front and back were stamped repeatedly with the Nesting Gears.  Also on the front frame are the Fancy Vintage KeyKey 3/4 x 1 1/4Steampunk Gothic and Steampunk Gear

Just inside the frame the Binocular Man is peering out of the frame, he was stamped on a transparency. On the outside of the frame is the Steampunk Warrior stamped on craft card stock. Both were heat embossed with Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder


If you look carefully you can see all the dimensions inside of the tunnel. Tunnel cards are fun to make, give one a try!

Father's Day Breakfast

Had breakfast at Barbie's Cafe in Seabeck... love the down home feeling!!!!  It was a busy morning at the restaurant, should have made reservations. It was a bit chilly for Dad outside. We sat in the overflow area at the front of the store and enjoyed watching all the activity out the front window!
