Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Fall/Winter Release Blog Hop Day 3!

Welcome to Day 3 of the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Fall/Winter Blog Hop! If you have arrived from Angela's blog, you are right on track!  If you are just happening by, hop back and start at the beginning, leaving comments along the way for your chance to win some of this fabulous release.

My card to day features CLR025B Steampunk Gears 3 Clear Set and D007 Hot Air Balloon Die.

I stamped the gears randomly on some designer paper in Tim Holtz's Distress Inks.  I added some faux stitching and distressed the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I stamped the balloons on some die cut papers from an older Basic Grey collection.  I cut out the spaces between the basket and the balloons because I'm funny that way!  I added a bit of Copic coloring to accent the gears and other details on the baloons.  The top balloon is popped up on foam tape.

I added some fun metal nailhead stickers, a dragonfly brad and a metal label piece from my stash of doo-dads.  What a fun Steampunk card!

Your next stop on this hop is Heidi's blog which is the last stop on this hop. Thanks for hopping!
