Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Hats Off!

Merry Day After Christmas! ¬†Today we are doing a Hats Off Challenge – interpret as you might ūüôā ¬†I chose some fun characters to watch the clock for the New Year.

I used Clock and Gears for the focal point of my card and made it a shaker! ¬†It’s popped on foam tape and a window sheet and filled with fun sequins, large gold foil pieces and glitter.

Jolly the Mouse, Honey the Bear and Baker the Beaver are decked out with champagne and fancy hats to wait for midnight.

And when the clock strikes 12………

I used the wonderful Anita Frames Pop UP  and a Stamping UP Balloon punch to get the party started.

Everything is die cut from Gold foil and Black and Silver Glimmer paper. ¬†My kind of party! ¬†Make sure to check out the other Hats Off cards on Karen’s Facebook page or her blog! ¬†Happy New Year! ¬†Hugs, Fran

Cray 4 Challenges – Celebrate

PIU Baker Beaver 04

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.

Karen Burniston Design Challenge Day 2 – Busy Baker

PIU Baker Beaver 03

















This month’s challenge is stencils! ¬†I used Karen Burniston’s new Stage It Stencil – Cherries Layering. ¬†This fun stencil has the cherries on one end and the stems on the other. ¬†Put them together and this is what you get! ¬†This card is 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and the cherries are stenciled with pearlescent embossing paste colored with Real Red ink. ¬†Can you see the shine?

The stems are done in Garden Green ink. ¬†It makes such a pretty background. ¬†Baker the Beaver is celebrating with cherry cupcakes while on an action wobble! ¬†The cupcake is part of Baker’s die and the cherry is from Stampin Up’s Cupcake builder punch. (retiring)

29 Again

PIU Baker Beaver 01

Since I’ve turned 29 every year for quite a few years – this card is perfect! ¬†Baker Beaver ¬†and the Cake Pop Stand are a new dies¬†for¬†the Karen Burniston Pop It Ups dies. ¬†Isn’t he cute? ¬†Don’t you love the spatula? ¬†That’s from the new Props 8. ¬†It’s a full set of baking props. For the cake, I used just the largest cake layering piece and cut it down by 1/8″ for each layer.¬†I’ve paired him with Stampin Up’s new Number of Years stamp set. ¬†The sentiment “Look who’s turning” fits exactly on Karen’s new Pull Card Edges. ¬†Baker and his cake are on an action wobble. ¬†The paper is the very fun It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions Mini and the balloons are the new Balloon Bouquet Punch.
