Challenge # 181 - Steampunk

Phew!  We hope everyone had a totally major time with our 80's blog hop and challenge, we like, fer sure did!  Big shout out to Lindsay, and everyone at Sassy Studios for the amazing images and contributions.

We'd also like to give a warm welcome to our newest design team member, Michelle!  Known as MishB on splitcoaststampers, you can view her awesome work there or on her blog, Evermore Card Creations.  We have been stalking Michelle and her work for years now, and we're thrilled to have her join the team!

Okay, back to business as usual, and that means it's time for a new challenge.  We are ALWAYS glad to welcome back a fantastic sponsor:  Kenny K!

Stamps from Kenny K are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations!  They have offered the winner of the challenge a prize of 5 digi stamps!  In honor of 3 new hotties added to the Steampunk Burlesque line of stamps, our challenge is simply "Steampunk".  Create a project with a steampunk theme.  As they describe it, over at Kenny K  "anything that is ornately embellished, with crazy amounts of fun and intricate Victorian-era detail - while retaining a modern rebellious attitude!" 

Here's what flew into the funnels of the team's minds for a little inspiration, using some super fun and steamy images from a past release:


Gear up, and break out your metal, vintage, and punky crafting goodies, and join us for this fun challenge!

Hello!  Regan here with the post today, and we have a something a little different for you!  It's my 40th birthday this week and to celebrate we have teamed up with sponsor Sassy Studio Designs to bring you a totally awesome 80s to the Max birthday blog hop!  Plus it seems I'm not the only August baby on the two teams so there's even more reasons to party!  There are LOTS of ways to win so be sure to read the post in full!

First, we have a sad good-bye and some happy hellos to attend to!  Kathy has stepped down to focus on family, and we'd like to wish her well!  Her talent will be missed, but we hope to still see her around!  I'd also like to welcome our two newest design team members: Debbie and Debora!  Debbie is on the SSD design team so we go way back!  I have admired Debora's work when she would enter our challenges, and I am so pleased to have her as an addition to our team!

Our challenge this fortnight is a birthday one with a twist: "It's Only A  Number" - create a birthday themed project which includes a number on it.  EVERYONE who enters will receive a special Sassy Studio Designs image, Boom Box Sassy, for FREE!  It will be emailed to you so be sure to enter the email address you would like to receive it at when you link up your project.

Please note that your project does not have to be 80s themed.  As long as it's birthday themed and contains a number your in!  BUT if you use a SSD image you will receive a bonus entry for the grand prize!  Simply enter a second link to your general blog with your name and "SSD" after it!  Want another reason to play along?  Our Top 3 this fortnight will also win a prize!  Each Top Pick will receive two images from the new SSD 80s release!

Lindsay, the owner and artist behind Sassy Studio Designs, has created a whole collection of 80s themed images as her August release just for this occasion!  Though I was born in the 70s, I grew up during the 80s and absolutely LOVE them!  These images are so much fun and will bring you right back to the decade of distinctive pop culture, music, and trends!  The winner of our challenge this fortnight will win the ENTIRE SSD 80s COLLECTION!!!  (Can't wait to win them?  You can purchase them HERE now! And for this week only there's a special!  You can buy the collection, that's all 9 images, for only $35!  A savings of $5.50!)  To see all the gorgeous images being featured by our two righteous design teams, please join us for my birthday blog hop!  The Sassy and Corrosive dudes and dudettes have designed some most excellent projects for you!  A random comment will be selected from each blog to win that featured image!  The more blogs you visit and comment on, the more chances to win you have!  Here is the complete list:
