This card is for a sweet young woman who just finished vet school! So of course I had to corral some Karen Burniston animals to congratulate her 🙂 They are posing in front of the Barn Pop Stand. The card is 4 1/4 x 9 and will easily accommodate a check or gift card.
The idea is that all the animals have come to wish her well. Check out the bandages on each one.
Looks like everyone is healing nicely! Enjoy! Hugs, Fran
Coming soon – New friends on the farm! Farm 2 Collection has 6 new dies and a clear stamp set. Hanging out on my 4 x 9 card, meet Cocoa the Horse and Snowball the Sheep! They are getting the Barn decorated with Cheepers the Chicken, Brownie the Cow and Virgil the Pig. Cute banner made with Stampin Up’s Flag punch!
And inside – William the Goat (decidedly NOT helping!) He’s in the new Pop It Ups Fence Pop Stand!
This is such a fun collection – on it’s own or in addition to the Farm 1 Collections 🙂 Sneak Peeks of all the new dies are on Karen’s blog today! Hugs, Fran
Day 2 for Karen Burniston May Designer Challenge – Barns, Barns, Barns! Here is Virgil the Pig wishing you a happy birthday. I used the new Clear stamp, Farm Greetings, stamped in Memento ink and colored with Stampin Write Markers. The Designer paper in Flower Pot.
The angle on this picture is sort of wonky but when you open the card, Virgil and his barn pop up! I left the doors of the Barn open so he looks like he’s walking out to greet you! Love that about this barn!
There, that’s better! His barn is decorated with a little Flag Punch banner. Fun! Hugs, Fran
Today is day one for Karen Burniston’s Design Team May Challenge – Barns, Barns, Barns! And I bring you Brownie the Cow getting ready to party 🙂 The stamp is from Life’s Adventure (a Stampin Up hostess set that’s getting ready to retire!) on some very fun Birthday Bash Designer Series paper.
The cake was colored with Copic markers and the party hat is from Karen’s Props 2 die set.
And here’s the herd at the barn- what a celebration! The barn Pop It Ups stand fits perfectly into the fold – holding up the barn (which is holding up the cows!) The word bubble is computer generated and the sentiment is from Sassy Salutations. The balloons (from the Spiral Pull Card die) are on fishing line. You can easily face the cows in any direction by simply flipping the die cuts over.
I added 1 3/4″ to my barn to make it higher by simply gluing an extra piece of yardstick on the bottom of the front and back barn. You can check out all the other cards on Karen’s Facebook page! Hugs, Fran
Here is Ms Cheepers – a new die from Karen Burniston – blinged out for the front of a card! She is strutting her stuff on some pretty Flower Pot Designer Series paper wearing her pearls.
Her friends are nesting on the Pop It Up Barn Pop Stand and the sentiments were created in My Digital Studio. Because I used card stock to create these chicks, it was easy to turn them in either direction. (DSP is easy too – just takes some thinking.) To cover the back of the Pop Up stand, I used a 1 1/4″ x 3 piece of card stock, scored at 1/4.”
Loving this new barn die from Karen Burniston! We have a farm and our barns are black with red roofs and trim, so I decided to make this one look like ours. Using Real Red and Basic Black I cut the barn and used it on the front of the card. When the doors open you can see the Hay There die. The Sunshine is from the So You stamp set in the mini catalog.
And here are all the characters – Brownie the Cow (1022), Virgil the Pig (1024) and Cheepers the Chicken (1024) with a computer generated sentiment on the Pop It Ups Lots of Pops die.
The little banner is punched from the banner punch. Wouldn’t these guys put a smile on someone’s face? Hugs, Fran
Karen Burniston has come out with a new line of Pop It Ups – and they fit perfectly with the stamp set From the Herd! One the dies is the Barn Pop Stand (1021). I used it on the front of this card! And the doors slide open and closed!
Inside is Cheepers the Chicken (1023), Brownie the Cow (1022), and Virgil the Pig (1024)! And they are all celebrating 🙂
The party hat is from Props 2 and the balloons are from the Spiral Pull Card. What a fun, fun set of dies!
