Just a few cards for you today.
I used my Tim Holtz flower die cut for the flower and of course Graphic 45 Halloween in wonderland paper line. Hand drawn spider in the corner. Ticket is stamp from Tim Holtz.
Next, we all love the mad hatter. Graphic 45 again with Tim again. The web stamp is Tim's along with the ticket. Flower is made from felt rolled up. We just learned this in our ATC group.
This one is not Graphic 45, imagine that? But all the same I like the way it came out. I found some elastic at the fabric store and it had like a ruffle edge on it, so I but some...of course, I like the way it looks on the card.
Close up of elastic.
That's it, quick and fast post.
Have a great weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.

Graphic 45

Well I went to the crop around town with some friends and the host was Graphic 45.
You all know how I hate to get my picture taken, but it's Graphic here I am with my dress form that I made because I was so inspired by the paper line Steampunk Debutante.

Okay, here I am. (I hate pictures) But it's Graphic 45......................So okay.
Diane and I, she made me do it!
Thanks for stopping by.

What do you see?

What do you see when you look at this? (It's a oil lamp I found for $1.96)
I see a ornament for Christmas...........this is going to be lovely!
I see a base for something you see it?

Oh forget that, I like it better this way! Way cooler for a base. Time to go to the garage and get in some tool time. I got to cut this base off! I can do this!
And I did!
So here it is all done. This is done with Tim Holtz paper and of course his idea-o-logy line. Some grungeboard and paper and alteration dies and ................just all things tim. LOL!

I love this!

I did good!!!!!!
Inspire........Who inspires you?
Just the back.
Last look!
Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow night I will be cropping with Graphic 45, should be fun! Love them!

Did you guess?

Here it is.......Ta~DA........
This is what I came up with for graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper line. I love the way this turned out. Very steampunk with springs and bottle openers and whatever else I could find to make this piece truly unique. This started as a nickel find at a garage sale. It was a candle holder with a lamp shade. Huh? I took it apart to make this stand for a paper mache dress form. I attached the two together and my creativity took off all on its own.
Do you know what these shoulders are? They are tim holtz's foundations~boxed feet. They are used for a base feet on boxes or I guess shoulders!
The back.........
closer look
even closer
the last spring!
So I hope you enjoyed my world of steampunk debutante.
I will be off the air till at least Sunday when all the festivities of Scrapfest finish up.
See ya!
