Congrats to the New Vet

PIU Vet card 01








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 ūüôā ¬†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

Karen Burniston December Challenge Day 2

PIU Christmas front

Everyone is coming for Christmas! ¬†Today my card features all the farm critters (plus Jolly) in true Home for Christmas style. ¬†This 6 x 6 card is big – but so’s the family ūüôā

PIU Christmas left front

Brownie is sporting a Santa-stash and glasses.  Cheeper is holding a candy cane.  And Jolly is bringing a present of cheese.  To attach the characters, the bottom layer (Brownie) is flat on the card.  The next layer is (Cheepers) is attached to Brownie.  And then Jolly is up on pop dots.  This gives it looks of dimension without being crazy.

PIU Christmas right front

William is helping with the garland and Snowball is wearing his Santa hat.  All the presents are popped up. The sentiment is from Project Life by Stampin Up Seasonal Snapshot 2015.

PIU Christmas open

Inside, Cocoa the Horse is already home!  The garland  Рwhich is pieces from the wreath in the Sleigh Gift Card die set Рsurrounds the Agatha Edge at the top.

The barn is decorated! ¬†The little candle is the chimney from the House die. ¬†The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Cozy Christmas!

Virgil Birthday


Day 2 for Karen Burniston May Designer Challenge РBarns, 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

Party ’til the Cows Come Home

PIU Brownie 02

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 ūüôā ¬†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.

PIU Brownie 03

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.

PIU Brownie 03 open

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


Fabulous Cheepers

PIU Cheepers 01

Here is Ms Cheepers Рa new die from Karen Burniston Рblinged out for the front of a card!  She is strutting her stuff on some pretty Flower Pot Designer Series paper wearing her pearls.

PIU Cheepers 01 open

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.”

Chicken In

PIU Barn 01

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

Pop It Up From the Herd

PIU From the Herd 02


Karen Burniston has come out with a new line of Pop It Ups Рand 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!
