Special Steampunk Stamp Post for Gecko Galz

WooHoo!  The Gecko Galz are celebrating an article in the Quick Cards Made Easy Feb magazine featuring the Gecko Galz Industrial Digi stamps so we all thought it would be fun to make some projects with them.  My first project is a tag combining 2 of the stamps.  Each was cropped in my Printmaster Program and printed multiple times so I could fussy cut and and decoupage the image for maximum dimension.

The bell jar was printed on four layers of printable acetate, regular white card stock, as well as matte silver metallic card stock and fussy cut and layered.  The inside foliage was colored green in my program and I also colored and the tiny butterflies with Copics and adhered them to the layers inside.

The woman was printed 3 times on white and once on matte silver metallic and colored, cut and layered as well.  She was cropped just below the top part of her skirt to layer onto the bell jar.  The Steampunk Heart die cut is from Cheery Lynn.

The striped Design paper is from the Gecko Galz Steampunk Digital Paper pack. The die cut behind is Memory Box and I've added a number of Tim Holtz Gears and Mini Gears.

The Steampunk Butterfly is also from Cheery Lynn and the sentiment is done with Tim Holtz stickers. This project sort of wore me out, but not before making some all digital creations with the stamps as well.

Steampunk is always great for male cards, don'tcha think?  I used my Printmaster Platinum program to resize, color and layer four of the stamps here.

And finally, a little bit of Steampunk humor.  Again, all digital using 3 of the stamps and my own computer generated sentiment.  So fun and FLAT for mailing.  WooHoo!  My DT sisters had as much fun as I did working with these fabulous stamps, so be sure to check out the Gecko Galz Blog for tons of inspiration.

I'm entering my tag in the TTPH ATG#76 Challenge, A Gem of a Challenge Lots of Layers, and Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Snarker's Choice ("S" is for Steampunk).
