Hearts & Flowers and Steampunk

Today I have three design team projects to share, for three different teams. First up is my card for the "Hearts and Flowers" theme at Make My Monday.

Next, my card for the February Design Team reveal at Just Imagine Crafts. I used Punch #905 to create the heart corners and Punch 607 for the fish. I cut the circle out using their fabulous Circle Cutter. The paper I used for the circle reminded me of bubbles! I added blue chalk and stamped green seaweed. The word love is from Heidi Swapp and the word strip is from Jillibean Soup.

Exciting news at Gecko Galz this month!! The Industrial Age digital stamp set is featured in the February issue of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine!

Some of the Gecko Galz design team members made samples using the stamps. Check out the GG blog to see them. My sample is below along with a list of products I used.

I began with image #21 from the Industrial Age stamps. I printed it onto Snow on Cedars paper (from Winter Wonderland papers). This was then backed onto Star Crossed paper (from Star Crossed papers). I colored the image with chalks and added other embellishments. The gears were cut from a Just Imagine Crafts die.

If you love Steampunk, you will definitely want these stamps!
