This team challenge is Boy oh Boy! – masculine cards! I chose Stampin Up’s No Bones About It set and Fiesta Birthday Designer Series paper paired with Karen Burniston’s Lorna Label Pop Up die.
The Lorna Label dies have matching pieces that create the center section. I used them on both the front and inside! It makes it so easy to put this card together.
Make sure to check out the other cards on Karen’s Facebook page! Hugs, Fran
Time for little spooks and ghouls! I needed a simple treat for some little boys so I used a file from svgcuts.com called Santa’s Sweets to create a Halloween house filled with lollipops. The stamp set is Cookie Cutter Halloween and the house is made with Halloween Night Specialty DSP.
The windows have images from Spooky Fun peeking out on vellum card stock.
Happy haunting! Hugs, Fran
Time for another Karen Burniston Team Challenge – ROYGBIV! The colors of the rainbow only monochromatic. I chose the color Pink 🙂
I started with a retired Stampin Up sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday and used Karen’s Labels and Circles die for the front. Lots of pink and a little bling finish it off.
The inside is a Pop It Ups Twist Circle Panel card with lots of cake and presents. The cake is from Stampin Up’s Endless Birthday Wishes. And more bling – of course. The video on how to make this card can be found here.

Today the Crazies are Celebrating! This is Raquel’s son’s birthday so the theme is celebrating those special people in our lives. I chose Karen Burniston’s Baker the Beaver to star on my card. This card is 4 x 8 1/2 so it can hold Baker’s enormous cake! (Looks like he needs some help!) Baker and the cake are on an action wobble.
I used several Stampin UP sets on this card – Build a Birthday, Birthday Fiesta and Birthday Banners! Enjoy all the celebrating going on with the Crazies! Hugs, Fran
This challenge uses the sketch (which I sort of followed!) I started with a huge 6 x 8 card and Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Midnight the Bat and Halloween Scene dies. He is hanging out on Stampin Up’s Sliding Star Framelits so he spins around the tree branch.
Spinners are hard to put down!
The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Spooky fun and the DSP is the new Halloween Night Specialty paper. Check out the other Crazies designs for this sketch! Hugs, Fran
Halloween! Spooky or cute? That’s today’s Karen Burniston Designer Challenge.
I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card the Karen Burniston’s new Labels and Circle die and her Halloween Clear stamp with the new Stampin Up Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment on 3 layers of the Labels and Circles dies and re-stacked them for the front.
And when you open the card –
A cute little Trick or Treat scene featuring the Twist Circle Pop Up die. The ghosts and pumpkins are from the Halloween Charms die set. I left the ghost as 3-D pieces so the pop up (!)
The little Trick or Treat bags are hand cut. So I guess my answer to the challenge question – spooky or cute – is cute! Make sure to check out the rest of the designer cards by going to Karen’s blog or Facebook page. Hugs, Fran
Twas the night before Christmas and the mice were getting ready to Deck the Halls! The Challenge today at Crazy 4 Challenges is to put 10 of anything on your card. I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card decorated for Christmas using Stampin Up’s Merry Mice.
Inside you find 10 mice getting ready to celebrate along with Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Twist Circle and Clocks & Gears.
I colored the little mice with my Copic markers – the left side is just stamped as is. But the right side……
was stamped on a window sheet and flipped over so they could all face towards the clock! Have fun seeing what all the Crazies did for this 10 challenge! Hugs, Fran
I am the guest player at Crazy 4 Challenges this month and the theme for today is “Don’t Wear White after Labor Day!” So we were challenged to make an all white card 🙂 I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base (5 1/2 x 11) and embossed the background layer with Stampin Up’s Gently Falling embossing folder. The beautiful layered sleigh from Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Sleigh Gift Card Holder and some snow flakes from her All Season Tree.
Inside is a winter white scene adding in Pop It Ups Iron Fence and Holiday House. The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s new Holly Berry Happiness
It’s hard to see the sparkle but trust me, it’s there! I went kind of crazy with the glitter!
All the Crazies have created beautiful white cards so make sure to check them out! And let me know if you follow the “don’t wear white” rule. (I do – at least with shoes and purses!) Have a great day – Hugs, Fran
There is an amazing die on page 11 of the Holiday Mini – Detailed Santa Thinlits dies – that cuts this swirly Santa. I’ve cased the card in the catalog and it really shows off how spectacular this die really is. The die is the full square – it’s so easy to use. I added the stars, edge and sentiment and this card is finished! The best part? It comes as a bundle! Imagine the Santa fun! Hugs, Fran
