Birthday cogs and gears.


Hi everyone, I'm playing along as a party guest at Seize the Birthday again this month. It's one of my favourite challenges as I always need birthday cards in my stash!

                                                                                                  
The toppings theme is Something Sweet but you can always play along with the anything goes birthday option too. I think I have a cupcake stamp somewhere but have had no luck finding it, so I went along with the anything goes option.

I diecut these cogs from an empty cereal packet, great source of chipboard that's a great thickness for my cuttlebug! The cogs are coloured with metallic rub ons. I've used brass, gold and pewter. You need to buff some of the colour off as it will rub off onto the white background, ask me how I know lol!!

I'm also linking up to the challenge at The Male Room where they want us to use diecuts from our stash,



and to the Happy Little Stampers anything goes with dies challenge.



Supplies:
Memory Box antique gear set and mini gears dies: MFT pierced tag stax die; Metallic rub ons by Jim Aldred Supply; sentiment sticker; Gear embossing folder, by Darice I think.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
