The Paper Players: Celebrate 400 challenges!


Happy Monday to you!

And Congratulations to The Paper Players team for hitting the 400 challenge mark! Impressive!

I am a big fan of The Paper Players challenge and really wanted to join in the celebration fun..

I used one of my new Sizzix Embossing Diffuser plates to create that yummy centrally embossed circle. I love that I can stretch my embossing plates with these new plates. I opted for a star folder, it is a celebration after all!

I stamped, die-cut and coloured one of the bears and balloons from the MFT Beary Special Birthday set.

The sentiment is by Concord & 9th and from their Celebrations set. I decided to add the cheerful yellow banner to break up the sentiment a bit and to Anchor my bear.

Now I wonder what he's brought as a gift..



  1. Claire, this is such a fun card! I love the embossed stars on the background and your little teddy bear is precious! Your coloring is perfect, too! So happy you joined the 400th challenge at The Paper Players this week! XX

  2. I've never had much luck with diffuser plates, but you make me want to try again! This is darling!

  3. Oh this is so sweet, Claire! Love the bright, happy colors, and that cool circle of embossed stars. I must look into the diffuser plates! Thank you for your kind words and for joining our 400th celebration at The Paper Players!

  4. Claire... just adorable! Love the colors and the embossed background! Great technique! Thank you so much for joining us for the 400th challenge at The Paper Players!
