# Debbie Brownmiller Frame corner #3 Border #15 Old Car Poinsettia Strip

Steampunk Christmas Layout

Nice to see you here today.  It's Debbie back with you  from Debbie's Time Out .
This week I was wanting to play with the Crafts Ann's steampunk dies from Cheery Lynn Designs but also wanting to do a Christmas layout as Christmas just around the corner now.  So I decided to mix dies that I wouldn't normally use together and I just love the results. Sometimes it is good to work out of the box and venture doing something different.
I started with a piece of kraft cardstock and spritzed it with water and crinkled it up a few times to get a nice texture . I then rubbed an ink pad over it and spritzed it again to make the ink move around and blend. I matted it with black. I then took a piece of map paper and tore it round the edges a little and inked it to give it a old look. That was my base done and ready to add die cuts to make my layout. The sentiment Christmas Wish is from the Merry Christmas Set and the Make a Wish Phrases .
I cut the Frame and layered it onto the map. All the steampunk dies were colored with Inka Gold to give them a nice metal look. This Frame set is awesome as the center has gears, nuts, a bolt, a wrench, a screwdriver and chain cut outs making it a great die set for men and boy cards. The Old Car  was cut three times. The first one I left as my base to build on. The second one I cut the tires off and put silver paper behind to give a chrome look to the cuts outs. The third one I cut the tires off again and embossed the car body with Micro black embossing powder to give it a nice paint job. When all assembled the tires sit back in a little like the real thing. Got to love this old car too.
Here is a photo of the corner using the Corner #3  with the wrench and screw driver beside it from the frame set.  The Poinsettia Strip   and Holly Leaves  were layered on top.
This is the top corner. The poinsettias were cut from burgundy velvet paper and the centers were tiny gears from the Gears and Frame  set. These tiny gears make great centers for the poinsettias. The poinsettias were layered onto the Snowflake 2.  The gear strip along the top is the Border #15 . The clock it from the Romantic set. I used silver liquid pearls in the centers also and on some of the gears for rivets.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think of the steampunk and Christmas dies used together.
I challenge you this week to play with different combo's of dies that you wouldn't normally use together and see what you come up with.
Have a great week.
