Steampunk Decor for Cake Stands & More!

This has got to be a favorite of mine at the Studio. I do enjoy mixing old design ideas with some new ones, don't you? Better yet, when it has an Art Nouveau platform on which to build its look for our readers, it makes it all the more fun for yours truly.
Offerer here are 3 style widths of this new edging, each ready for your clever snips with scissors and/or artful punching with edger punches. 
These may print well on card stock--but remember: the Sample Sheet below may be an 8.5" by 11" snippet, but the actual size of our finished product will print at 11" by 17"--or U.S. Ledger Document Sized. 
This will provide you with a print-worthy version of two 15.25" long strips per each style.
Please note how this pattern has a slight irregularity, and no amount of tinkering with its look has yielded our idea of matching end to end with the same  even ended results a professional wallpaper printer may be able to give you. 
That being said, there's a way around any problem of this kind, one being to hide the blemish spot with a cover-up of some sort. Included are little spacers, in two sizes, large and small, as decorative cover-ups.
Have no fear!
I'd never expect you to have to blindly "fussy cut" each little pinked edge!!!!
Instead, the set has been left this way for more creative fun.

I could see the middle two styles, in particular,  being cut with decorative edged scissors/edger punch a bit below their bottom pinking and in the white, uncolored areas of your final print-out. 
At which point, with a few strokes of a little Distress Ink in an appropriate shade to match your printer and/or copy center's output, you'd have a customized version all your own.
Lace may be an option for some, particularly if it's creamy in tone and/or tea/coffee stained for that antiqued look we all crave when it comes to Steampunk crafting.
Anyway, I hope that you'll enjoy this latest outing in the Steampunk genre, a favorite here for some while.

First! And oh wow, dear Possums! We must have cake with Tea (or it's not really Tea, it's just a cloudy brown hot liquid...)

These are wonderful, flowy organic Art Nouveau loops with sprockets? Perfect!

Wow, the word verification for this post is 'Ingine'

Like a Steem Ingine?

Rhissanna: Okay I cannot type today, for the life of me, without some idiotic gaffer... hence, the above deletion.
*clearing throat*
I am so glad you came by to see this newest addition to the line-up of "Steem"-powered offerings.
Beg pardon, but your reference to "Ingine" leaves this possum scratching her head , puzzled.
Do clarify, dear rabbit.

Plush Possum Studio said...

Amy: Good point! We hadn't really thought of that till you mentioned it!!!! So thanks! Great idea!!!

Rhissanna said...

*clears throat* You have 'word verification* on your blog, and sometimes the words are nonsense and sometimes the words are apposite.

Today's offering was the word 'ingine'. Like 'engine, see?

And if someone missspelled engine as 'ingine' maybe they'd also misspell steam, as 'steem'?

So, Steem Ingine... see? *looks very embarrassed*

Rhissanna: Clever Rabbit! Guess I missed the inference to word verification....
Sorry to spoil your joke by being a bit of a dullard!
