Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today?

It is Tuesday and that means sharing another project using papers and ephemera from my Etsy store.

In the video below I take you through each of the two paper designs and ephemera.

Click the link to get more information.

Today sharing a male card using the Steampunked papers from Emerald City Crafts UK.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 square white card from Anna Marie Designs.
2. Matted and layered patterned paper from the Steampunked paper kit.
3. Cut down the ephemera of the balloon and distressed the edges.
4. Stamped the hot air balloon from Sheena Douglass Time Traveller stamp and die set, with Versamark and embossed with Frantage, I then used the corresponding die to cut out, coloured image with DI markers.
5. To finish off cut out the gears from SB Sprockets dies with Kraft card and distressed with ground espresso.
