Clockworks Birthday

I got the "Clockworks" stamp set out for the challenge this week at The Paper Players based on this great sketch by Jaydee.

I created the background piece for my card by cutting out small diamonds from the First Edition Specialty paper and adhering this to a piece of Naturals Ivory cardstock.  I then sponged on Early Espresso all over this piece.   It ended up a bit dark so to lighten the card a bit I incorporated the First Edition Specialty DSP (stamped with Midnight Muse) and the Naturals Ivory cardstock.

The colour scheme is Midnight Muse, Early Espresso and Naturals Ivory.  The sentiment is from the "Itty Bitty Banners" stamp set and was cut out using the matching Bitty Banners Framelits.  The small cogs were stamped on Naturals Ivory cardstock with Midnight Muse and Early Espresso, then punched out using the 1.2" and 3/4" circle punches.  Matting circles were cut from Midnight Muse and Early Espresso cardstock using the 3/4" and 1" circle punches.  Early Espresso bakers twine was added to the base of the card.


  1. Carolyn, I love your use of Clockworks here. The color scheme is gorgeous and very masculine. Must pull out that stamp set this weekend. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week.

  2. Wow Carolyn I just love this. Love the mounted cogs behind the watch. Vx

  3. This is a beautiful card. Love how you've made your background.
