Oh I have been so excited to do this blogpost!! Now promise me you will leave me a comment (to get entered in the giveaway) and tell me what you think of this trend! 

So a few months ago, I happened to watch a random documentary on some random channel about the world of Steampunk. It explained the trend which revolves around an old school science fiction genre. People get really into it and get dressed up and go to events. There really is a whole Steampunk world out there for their fans! THEN, one of these times when I posted on Facebook asking what kind of stacks you wanted to see---people kept saying "Steampunk!" So I talked to my girl, D, who is in charge of all artwork that comes out of DCWV and asked her about the trend. Well, she pulled out the cutest stack and said, "Guess what's coming out in July!" They already knew the trend, had it designed and on the calendar to be released. (Keep reading for a few teasers from the stack!)

So that leads us to...What is steampunk?


This is a good question that is difficult to answer.
Steampunk has always been first and foremost a literary genre, or least a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy that includes social or technological aspects of the 19th century (the steam) usually with some deconstruction of, re imagining of, or rebellion against parts of it (the punk). Unfortunately, it is a poorly defined sub genre, with plenty of disagreement about what is and is not included. For example, steampunk stories may:
  • 1. Take place in the Victorian era but include advanced machines based on 19th century technology 
  • 2. Include the supernatural as well 
  • 3. Include the advanced machines, but take place later than the Victorian period, thereby assuming   that the predomination by electricity and petroleum never happens.
  • 4. Take place in an another world altogether, but featuring Victorian-like technology

You need to see some pictures to really catch the vibe!! Here is a pic I found of some people dressed up at a Steampunk Event. They go on all around the word. They coordinate through social media and the Internet. Fascinating!!

.

Steampunk is turning up all over the place! Here is the cover of the new John Mayer album.


Even Hello Kitty can dress up in her Steampunk costume!

 

Gears, clocks, ravens


Masks, iron


Mixing textures and themes


Keys, copper


cameras


These are some of the icons that show up the most in Steampunk world. I think watching the show on TV really fascinated me with the trend! I love seeing people be creative and happy and the people into Steampunk look like they are having a blast :)


Here are a couple peeks at our new Steampunk Stack which is coming out the begining of July. It has a cool name which I am not sharing yet and I can't tell you what stores it will be in. You will have to wait! But as always, we pull through in giving you amazing prints and quality in stacks that you can hoard and hoard and CREATE with :) hee hee!

PLEASE leave me a comment and let me know what you know about the Steampunk world and what you think of it!! I will pick some stack winners on Monday :) Have a fabulous weekend!!

  5. Steampunk itself isn't my style, but there are definitely parts/pieces of it that I like and would incoporate into my crafting. I often find it a little too busy/ornate for me, but many of the design elements and images are wonderful and are great for a more CAS vintage feel.

  6. Can't wait to see the whole collection!!

  7. Im a STEAMPUNK FREAK ....I make everything I can with gears and levers ! To me its an easy going style that has no rules :) hope you keep on with your ideas for paper .:)

  8. It's been said that "steampunk is what happens when goths discover brown." As a goth girl who moonlights as a steampunker, this is definitely true! My last birthday party was even titled "the steampunk masquerade"!

    I think it goes without saying that I'm pretty stoked for this stack to come out!

  9. I really am excited to see all of the new releases! I personally don't know a lot about steampunk and have not crafted in that aspect, but am always looking at new ways to be creative!

  19. I am wicked excited that DCWV has picked up this trend! Your paper lines are so much more available than some of the smaller companies that have already trended this way.

  26. I must have it! I've been slowly collecting what Steampunk scrapbook stuff I can find, and afford. I think I"m gonna need a bigger shelf.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Finally, Steampunk defined... I have heard it talked about, seen layouts defined as Steampunk, but never really understood what made it up and where it comes from. Now I know. cool.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My family has been going steampunk for about a year now! We listen to steampunk music and discuss the books and although none of us does whole costumes, we do incorprate some steampunk themes in our crafts and clothes...keys, gears, metal etc. What total fun to have paper like this!!! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  29. it's great! I've been into it for a while and have a mini on my blog

  30. Thanks for the lesson on steampunk. I never really knew what it was. I'm usually not on the cutting edge of trends and things have to grow on me for awhile before I tend to take them up, so I'm not really into steampunk right now -- but that doesn't mean I won't be changing my mind about it. Like I said, I'm usually a little slow when it comes to trends.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Since my style is so eclectic, I love parts and pieces of the Steam Punk style. I love that this is exciting and different. Variety is the spice of life! Thanks for the sneak peek.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The hubby and I went to a Steam Punk exhibit at an Anaheim museum. Very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  33. How exciting! Love it and can't wait to see the new collection!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh Wow, Erin. I don't know much about the Steampunk world, at least I didn't think I did but I love the authors and novels you have portrayed above. I must admit that I am not a huge fan of it in my crafting - more of a sentimental vintage rather than an iron vintage I guess. I do love the clocks though and the keys and the whole thing is rather growing on me. You are such a tease! I can't wait to see this new stack. Who knows, maybe I will just go totally overboard on Steampunk when I see your new papers! It has been known to happen :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. oh i'm loving it already thanks for the sneak peek.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks for educating us! I have to admit I'm still on the fence about this trend - I like looking at it, but not sure if I'm ready to use it in MY work...

    ReplyDelete
  71. I've heard of Steampunk for years now. I kind of like the mixture of feminine/masculine and hard metals/soft flowers that are common themes. Not sure if I want to use it for scrapbooking yet, but DCWV stacks usually convince me!!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Wow!!! This is the first I am hearing of Steampunk. I had seen this type of stuff before but didn't know that there was a name for it. Can't wait to see this stack to see if it is my style.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Amazing things. I have not yet tried using steampunk yet, but is something I am trying to branch out and try!

  74. Oh excuse me, it's hard to type through all the drool on my keyboard! This is torture, making us wait like that...Gorgeous sneak peek!

  77. I haven't done anything Steampunk but I'd love to- I really like the look. I actually got the Tattered Time stack with the thought of using it for something steampunkish.

    ReplyDelete
  78. To me, Steampunk is like goth merging with H.G.Wells! Love everything about it! Thanks for the sneaky peaky and for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  79. steampunk to me is metal, hot, vintage, history, mystery and art.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Steampunk is a neat look, I will have to do some research.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Loved your informational and fun blog this week. Steampunk looks like fun when it comes to putting things together. WOW! So much to learn about a new trend.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love, love, love Steampunk and DCWV! Just haven't had enough time to create more steampunk but there are a LOT of ideas swirling around in my head!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Love love love! As always Erin you and DCWV bring us exactly what we want when we want it! Steampunk wasnt always my style but over the last year i find myself attracted and seeking this out for my papercrafting. I cant wait until July or your next post about this new stack!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I like steampunk lite. I like some of the individual components (ie, gears, clocks, etc.), but I get a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Steam punk has been a slow growing trend but I think it is one that is easy for people to embrace because it appeals to a wide variety of styles. I first heard of steampunk as trend about two years ago on a cake show. The clients had already been following the style trend for some time. I guess it is when manufacturers pick up o the trend and make products that give the customer more avenues to express that trend with things like paper to bring that element into their creations. I actually just made a cut file for a card to make a steam punk inspired card to add to my blog. There really hasn't been too much on the market to add those extra embellishments. I think it is definitely a fun genre that can appeal to a wide audience. As for me, I love the vintage feel coupled with a timeless appeal for what the future holds.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I will be honest by saying I had no idea what steampunk was! I am excited though to see the paper for it....I like the idea of a vintage style!

  90. Erin thal you and your team for this awesome stack that will be coming in July! My twelve year old son is way ahead of me and has loved "STEAMPUNK" since he saw the movie "9". He makes lil odd toys that are reflective of all these looks and has been asking me for a journal decorated with all these looks. So in July I will be running to purchase this tack. Thank yo for sharing! GREAT JOB. DCWV!

  92. Have never grasped the full concept of it but have been drawn to much of the style of it.
    I love clocks, wings flourishes and the antique/chic look.

  93. Even though not many people have said anything about their actual knowledge of the origins of Steampunk, it's obvious that I am not alone in my love of the style. It's high time that DCWV jumped on this bandwagon! I know of only 2 craft supply manufacturers that have come out with Steampunk paper and/or embellies collection so I'm hoping for some really cool supplements to the papers. So excited for this release like I haven't been excited for one in ages and ages. I'll be waiting for the sneak peeks and saving my pennies in the meantime! Thanks for this tease, Erin!

  100. I didn't know about Steampunk so I'm glad I read your post! Thanks for the lesson...it is super cool!!!! I love the vintage feel and the colors! Can't wait to see what you guys created at DCWV! I LOVE your stacks!!! I have tons of ideas running through my mind right now of layouts I could create with Steampunk items...the possibilities are endless! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Although I never do anything Steampunk related, I do like it! I think it is quirky and neat. I love big dresses and then adding in all the other metals and gears and big clunky glasses is just cool.

  103. I found your take on steampunk and explanation interesting. I like to see things done in it but I haven't found it to be something I have wanted to do. Now that you have explained more about it I find that it might work well for some things for my dad, brothers, or husband.

    ReplyDelete
  104. oh how funky is that? Thanks for keeping up in the LOOP!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. It is very exciting to see that DCWV has taken to the trend of today's scrapbooking world. Not many paper lines have steampunk other than another company which I will not mention (lol). Steampunk has been in my heart for many years without realizing what it was called. Love how the two eras collide. Uber excited! Thanks for a chance to win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yippie!!!!! Jumping up and down....I love....love...DCWV paper and this will make the best projects....how exciting.....and I'm sure it will be one of ya's best sellers...I know I will be buying them......yea!!!!!!

  111. Well, it's nice to know what exactly the term steampunk actually means! LOL
    There are elements that I can see would make great pages for teens and 20 yr olds.
    DCWV is always on the cutting edge and I bet the product will do well.
    Thanks for the chance to win

  113. Oh, I have an online scrapping friend who is going to go nuts over this line! I am more reserved, so I will have to wait and see, but I already am liking some of what I am seeing here! Like the record album, the t-shirt, and the camera! Kinda brings me back to my teen years in the 60s----LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I wish you had come out with this a few weeks ago. My writer's critique group is hosting two authors, John Claude Bemis and Stephen Messer, who both write in the steampunk genre, this Sunday at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC for a schmooze. I've been working on steampunk decorations for the event. This is awesome. I'll have to save the pictures I take to scrap with the new papers.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Very interesting, I think I'm going to like this new stack. Also I just like saying "steampunk" lol.

  116. I can't wait! I love it so much.. I'm so excited. My daughters and I have been waiting and watching for this to finally catch up. Thank you so much!!

  118. I learned about Steampunk from my adult son, who is writing a series of novels about this genre. He has been writing for over 2 years, so that is how long ago I heard of it. I'm a bit surprised that it is still in fashion. I'm thrilled that you are jumping on the bandwagon, as I find it a very interesting and attractive look!

    ReplyDelete
  119. When I was reading your post, the first thing I thought of was the movie "A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" It was all about steampunk, with the Jules Verne twist. A submarine in Victorian UK. Then characters made up of comic book heroes. It was great fun and is one of my fave movies. When I think of crafting with steampunk, I think old metal, clocks and gears. And no rules. I can add anything I'd like. Just make it look old. Looking forward to the paper stack to see what y'all's take on it is. TFS

    ReplyDelete
  120. I've only known about the element of it, seeing them used a lot in scrapping. I didn't know the orgin, very interesting! I love it, in doses, as I have seen it sometimes overused LOL the new stack looks fun!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I'm not sure it's tripping my trigger! lol I do see elements of it that are intriquing. I'm reserving judgement.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I've been doing steampunk off and on with keys, gears, and metal for a while now. I don't do it all the time, but I love it. I'm glad DCWV has come out with a paper stack for steampunk!!!
    I can't wait to see it!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Now I get it. :) The paper is really interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I to just got started in Steampunk. I love it! and glad DCWV is keeping up with the trend. If you watch the movie League of Extroidanary Gentlemen (Sean Connery is in it). You will see steampunk in it. Also the old show Wild Wild West and the one with Will Smith in it shows steampunk. So it has been around just no one noticed till now. I made a steampunk flower bouquet. Stop by and check it out!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Steampunk - not my taste as we see it interpreted today. As a literary genre it is another matter as is how one defines the term. The DCWV papers do look intriguing and I could probably challenge myself to create with them especially if I were to win a stack!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I really like how steampunk works so well as a design concept for guys and boys who have an engineering head (my husband and son qualify!) All the gears and metal are so attractive to them! It's wonderful when there are products that appeal the their interests!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Oh, thank you for answering the question as to what Steampunk really is!! I have seen so many examples, but never knew what it really was. I think I am going to love this new stack coming out! Impatiently waiting.....

    ReplyDelete
  128. Wonderful explanation! I have seen so many "versions" and questioned if some applied or not! I already love what I see of the new stacks! Can't wait to hear what name has been assigned to it! I'm sure it's terrific! I have so many metal gear embellies that would go with it!

    ReplyDelete
  129. Thank you for the explaination of Steampunk--always wondered exactly what it was!

  130. Wow. I can use those for my pics of dragoncon. Steampunk was very popular last year.

  138. How exciting, a steampunk stack. I can't wait to see it. I don't know much about it or where it originated but I admire the images I have seen. I don't think I could combine all the elements of fabric, metal and punk like true Steam Punkers do. Thanks for a chance to win.

  139. Steampunk has been getting more and more popular this year in the scrapbooking/crafting world. I absolutely love it and I love creating projects based around it!! To me its victorian grunge mixed with gears and metal elements/embellies. Can't wait to hear the name and see the stack, I'm sure it's gonna be awesome! :)

  141. I have heard the word but did not know what it meant exactly. So thank you for explaining it so now I know! I loved looking at all the pictures you shared, loved the costumes. Looks like it's a community like the people who dress up in comic book characters and go around the country. Very cool. I love the sneak peeks you showed, that will be another stack that will be in my collection when it comes out! I am thinking it will help with the Europe pictures I will be taking this summer!

  143. I have not heard of this genre as such, only noticed that movies like Sherlock Holmes embrace this kind of theme! The inspiration pictures seem interesting enough, I can't wait to see what kind of a stack DCWV has come up with!

  145. To be honest, I didn't know very much about Steampunk until I read your post! I've been seeing it in different collections and always love the old clocks with roman numerals showing. The Victorian influence intrigues me -- and I too love to see people having a great time! Thanks for all the information.

  149. Thanks for defining Steampunk. I have been wondering for so long what it really was. Steampunk just seemed to appear out of no where in the paper craft world. Love how it looks but not something I will actually do myself but I do love what others do with it. It's pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing the Steampunk Matstack! I think it will be awesome and I might even use some of it.

  159. I love DCWV, but my "scrap subjects" are usually my kiddos...2 girls and a baby boy all under the age of 8....so, I would not really see myself using this stack, but definitely cool for people who would! Love that DCWV keeps up with the trends!
