About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

CCM #96 - Birthday!!!

Woohoo! Crafty Cardmakers is 4 years old, and I have been lucky enough to be part of the team for over a year and a half.  So, it's only fitting that this challenge is all about Birthdays!! Our esteemed leader, Lin, is hosting, and she would like to see your birthday creations to help us celebrate!

We are sponsored this time be Di's Digistamps who are offering a $10 gift voucher.
And by Hobby Art, who are offering a gorgeous set of stamps

So, here is my offering for the challenge. I started with a Craftwork Cards 148mm square base card.
I embossed a piece of white card with an Embossalicious 6x6 Floralbunda folder. I used an old Colorbox Petal Point silver pad to ink around the edges of the embossed card, the Craftwork Cards Warren Rabbit topper and sentiment. The paper I have used is Papermania Ivory/Black Creative Tones. The topper and sentiment are mounted on Spellbinders Splendid Circles. The grey and white grosgrain ribbon is from my stash, as are the black gems and white pearls. The hat pins are from Creative Expressions.

Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Cardmakers blog to check out the rest of the design team inpiration.
