The Guard at the Taj Mahal

Hello all!  I hope you're enjoying some beautiful Spring weather wherever you are!   What an amazing bunch of new stamps Chocolate Baroque has come out with this month! I've combined them with some that came out last month - so versatile and fun to play with!  I used two new stamp sets on this card, some masking and die cutting. The stamp sets are: Punky Flowers, and Indian Textiles. Just wait until next month!!! More gorgeous stamps to come, that will be perfect with these! Keep an eye out for possible sneaky-peeks! 
The gilded gate isn't shown very well in this photo, and is very shiny. 
I used a mask and sponge dauber to make the clouds.

Pretty Flowers

Hello, All! Have you seen the newest flower stamps from Chocolate Baroque?

The set is called Punky Flowers, and goes well with any other "Steampunk" set in the CB line! Awesome! I love black and fuschia together - one of the most striking color combos I've seen!


I think this flower stamp from the Punky Flowers set is going to be a favorite of mine! It doesn't feel so much like "steampunk", but I really like it's structure, and it will go well with the new Indian Elephants set released last month, as well as many other sets!  
The sentiment "I'M GRATEFUL" is from the Words of Gratitude set.

Steampunk Christmas Ornaments

Hello!  I know it's too early for Christmas, but I'm participating in the Christmas Card group with Chocolate Baroque, and this card was the theme for last month's card using silver and gold.  When I looked at the new stamps, they were upside down, and that's how I got the idea to make ornaments out of them.  This new stamp set is called PUNKY FLOWERS, which you can see below the card.

I covered the white card base with gold glittered tulle, and tied a gold sparkly cord at the top.  The "ornaments" were heat embossed in gold and silver, hand-cut out, applied over some green die cut "branches" from my stash, then decorated with gold and white half-pearls.

 Thanks for visiting!  I appreciate you stopping by, leaving a note or pinning me!  :)
