Steampunk Destinations - Mid Month Reminder

Yay! So great to see you here at our little Steampunk corner!

Ready for some more inspiration for our actual challenge "Steampunk Destinations"? Or are you curious about this month's prize sponsor? Then this is the right post for you ;)

Team B has travelled to some beautiful spots too and if you haven't seen the makes of team A yet, you should check them out too! To do so - and to get to the link up to enter our challenge - click HERE.

This month's prize sponsor is lovely Iris from Irishteddy's!


Once more she will give away a 10 Euro voucher to spend with her well sorted online store. All you have to do to get eligible for the win is enter a proper project to this month's challenge and join in the steampunk fun!

Now on to the creations of team B:
(for more details get to the teamies' blogs by clicking the names or the images. Comments are highly appreciated of course ;)


Mrs. Shadow Box here :-)
(that's my new nickname), but I love these objects because the depth creates a fascinating and dramatic visual result. I had this earworm in my head: ''I've never been to New York'' ... and so I have made a 3D project with the title ''Dream Dancer''. More details and discoveries can be seen on my blog.


My 'Steampunk Destination' is Victorian London - I think that would be one of my time travel destinations (if there were the possibility!) Certainly Victorian London fits a steampunk style and I have added my usual vintage techniques to make a sepia tinted picture and frame.


I found that my ancestors travelled to the most wonderful places! For this LO I used colour copies of photographs which show them hiking a glacier! Wow! They were real explorers back then, weren't they?


So many wonderful places to travel and so many possibilities to get there! We can't wait to learn about your favourite (steampunk) destinations! Click HERE to get to the challenge. It is open until the end of the month and Top3 and prize winner will be announced on Saturday, 6th December. 

In the meantime we wish you a happy crafting time!

Claudia and your SASPC team!

Steampunk Destinations - the November Challenge

Don't we all love to travel! Going to new places, learning about foreign culture, enjoying foreign cuisine, visiting wonderful sights all around the globe...is so exciting, isn't it!

There are a lot of destinations around our globe worth visiting. Think about capitals like Paris, New York, London, Venice, Vienna, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Kairo,....to name just a fraction. But also nature highlights or exceptional historic buildings can be destinations worth visiting....like the Niagara Falls, the Chalk Cliffs of Ruegen, Mount Everest, the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, Miss Liberty, and...and...and...

So whatever you associate with "Destinations" - it is what we want to see (steampunked of course) with your projects for our November Challenge:

Steampunk Destinations


here we come!

Before I show you the fab creations from Team A, let give you a quick reminder about the winners post which will go online next Saturday. So make sure you check back to find out if you made it to the Top 3 or won the prize sponsored by Tando Creative!

But now let's move on to our next destination - "DT Inspiration":
(if you want to travel to the blog of a DT member to have a closer look, just click the name or the image. By clicking on the images you also get a larger view)


For November I'll go to... Paris, with a book. Not an e-book but un u-book. The background is cardboard, the hinge is fabric. Paint, images, charms, dies, stamp..... and of course Eiffel Tower !

All pages with details  are on my blog



I think Paris is a great destination. See more on my blog

If you gave me a time machine, I'd travel to Victorian London. 
You don't have one? Blimey. Well, I guess I'll just make myself a tag, then. ;)


Hach!*) I am ever so proud of my fabulous team!

The challenge will be open until the end of the month. On the 15th of each month we provide you with more inspiration from team B and reveal the prize sponsor for this month's challenge too. So don't forget to come back then to find out.

As usual we offer two separate collections for your 2D and 3D creations. 

Have a lot of Steampunk creating fun! We are always blown away by all the artistry and imagination of the projects you enter. You all make our Steampunk Corner such a special place. Thank you so much! ...so we eagerly (and impatiently) wait to see your new projects for our challenge! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC-Team!

*)"Hach" is what we say (or happily sigh) in German to express a feeling of deep satisfaction or simple happyness.

October Mid Month Inspiration, Some Spotlgihts and a Prize Sponsor

Servus and a warm welcome to all the Steampunk lovers out there!

It's time for our mid month inspirations bundle and the announcement of this month's prize sponsor and it is


So don't miss the chance to win some Tando goodness by entering a project to our actual challenge "Steampunk Couture" which is still open until the end of the month. The winner will - as always - be picked randomly among all the (proper) entries from the 2D and 3D collections.

My wonderful design team have created some more fab "steampunk couture" projects for your inspiration, but I thought I'd also shine some spotlights on some of the wonderful entries from our last challenges (as I have to admit that I have been very negligent with this during the last months. Sorry for that).

But first to my wonderful teamies' creations:


The 'Rebuilder of Gowns' establishment got itself an extended version of their advertisement in the form of an ATC with a skirt rebuilt steampunk couture-style. :)


and yet a top hat, also for me the most beautiful Assecoire of the steampunk couture. The result is a mixed media collage using stencils and stamps.

This 'Couture Creation' used a mannequin that had been started as another project over 18 months ago...it didn't 'work' then and I discarded it in favour of another idea. The mannequin sat in the scraps bin for all this time and was brought back to life to be a steampunk creation here.


And now on to the promised spotlights (and I promise I will try to do them more regularly again from now on!):

lovely art journal spread


beautiful vintage creation



brilliant card


Well done, ladies! We really loved your creations and are happy that you shared them with us! Please, feel free to grab the spotlight badge for display on your blogs! xxx


So if you want to join in - HERE is the link to the actual challenge (or just click the button on top of the side bar)! We would love to see you play along with us! 

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC-Team

You all entered such fabulous creations to our "Steampunk Stories" challenge and the team and I enjoyed visiting your blogs and learning about the stories behind your creations so much! Choosing was hard - as always - but we managed to narrow the projects down to three favourites for each collection and here they come (in order of their appearance in the collections):










Yay! Huge congrats, ladies! We loved to see all the love, labour and imagination you put into these smackin' projects! Please, feel free to grab the badge for display on your blogs!

Steampunk Couture - the October Challenge

Hello, servus and welcome back, dear Steampunk friends!

Time to start the challenge for October, isn't it?
But first the whole team want to thank you all (once more) for all the brilliant and amazing artwork you share with us so constantly! Choosing our Top3 is always such a hard choice and narrowing your entries down to three favourites is never easy. But we will do our job of course and announce the Top3 of the last challenge on Saturday, 11th. So make sure to check back then to find out if you made it to the top ;)

The challenge theme for this month is

Steampunk Couture

and it means that any kind of sewing themed, dress themed, fashion themed, couture themed Steampunk creation will fit in.


Team A have created some really beautiful projects for your inspiration. I recommend you visit their blogs (by clicking the names or the images) to find out more and have a closer look (and maybe even take the time to leave a short comment for my lovely and busy ladies ;).


An altered puzzle - the skirt is fabric with felt gears, some charms, ribbon... paint



This month it's time for catwalk and steampunk masquerade
pop over to my blog to see more details



When I think 'steampunk couture', I think 'top hats'. So I made one. :)
 It's really tiny, To see just how tiny it is, hop over to my blog.


Well, that's what I call inspiration. Yay! ;) 
Our challenge will be open until the end of the month and again we offer two separate collections for the 2D and the 3D makes you (hopefully) enter to our challenge (soon). 

Our prize sponsor for this month's challenge will be revealed on October 15th - alongside an additional inspirations bundle from Team B. So don't miss that!

We hope to see you and your fab projects soon! 

Hugs and happy crafting,

your SASPC-Team

September Mid Month Inspiration and Prize Sponsor

Servus and welcome back, dear Steampunk friends!

It is time to provide you with some more inspiration so you get inspired to play and join in our actual "Steampunk Stories" challenge!

This month's challenge theme is widely open for personal interpretation - as long as there is an explanation on your blog post that connects the creation to the "stories" theme.

It is also time to announce this month's prize sponsor:

it is Tusia from 7 Dots Studio! Yay!


and she is giving away this awesome prize package:

Look at those fab stamps and chipboard parts! All you have to do is enter our challenge with a project to get eligible to win these! We will draw one random winner from all challenge entries as usual. So don't wait - play! ;)

Team B have once more risen up to the challenge and created the most beautiful and inspiring projects:

Kerstin's Lifetimestory

I was inspired from Tim Holtz's idea in August ...i wanted to create something for the art of it ...
  ...and so I let run free my Steampunkfantasies and just started without a plan.
The result was a mix of various Steampunkstamps and techniques that I always wanted to try.
"Recycle it !" is always a good credo to follow and is totally in, isn't it?  :-)
Simple things, like for example packing materials, were used and so I have created a stamped scene, which tells about my own creative steampunk travel. More details you can see on my blog, please.


 art square 20 x 20 cm, paper and gauze, acrylique paint,  stencil for background, dies, charm, image

A creation that began with a load of mistakes! This used parts of another creation that went terribly wrong - What doesn't work for one thing may just be perfect for another!


I have to say a huge thank you to Brigitte, for covering for me (and to the rest of the team too as they have all offered their help immediately), as I still am working on a reduced level due to my health issues (but I am on my way back to normal health - slowly but steadily - and I am glad to be able to be your host still! Honestly I would miss this a lot - seeing your awesome projects entered to our challenges and working alongside my fab, fab teamies! 

Hope to see you enter our challenge soon! If you haven't checked out the makes of Team A yet, I recommend you do! Get to the link up and their creations HERE.

Hugs and happy crafting,
Claudia and the SASPC-Team!
