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
Are you ready to decorate for Halloween? How about a haunted barn with decked out characters? This barn is from SVGCuts.com and is called – Haunted Barn! I used some retired Stampin Up Halloween Designer Series paper and LOTS of black card stock to create this cute 3-D.
There are some really cute details – the corn stalks, lanterns and bats, to name a few.
And a Haunted Barn needs haunted barnyard animals! I used Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups characters to create my scene. First is Cheepers the Chicken appearing as a zombie.
Brownie the cow is a vampire. His cape was hand cut from washi tape over card stock.
And William the Goat is the devil 🙂 His cape is cut the same way as Brownie’s.
The barn is lit from within and really looks cute at night.
And to make this entire ensemble even better, all the characters are on sale this week!! Happy haunted shopping spree 🙂 Hugs, Fran
Time for another challenge with Crazy 4 Challenges group! This time it’s a sketch – one of my favorite type of challenges. Here’s the sketch.
And here’s my card –
Good ol’ Brownie the Cow on a Pop It Ups Rectangular Pull Card! He’s celebrating ! The background stamp is Stampin UP’s Hardwood. Love the barbed wire – it’s the Pop It Ups Western Edges.
The party’s gotten out of control and Brownie’s having a good time! His costume is from the Pop It Ups Props 1 and 2. The stamps are Karen Burniston’s Farm Greetings and the balloons are from the Spiral Pull Card. Check out the other cards for this challenge – and play along! Hugs, Fran
I’ve been asked to be the guest designer with the “Crazies” over at Crazy 4 Challenges this month! The first challenge is to make a card showing how you’re going to celebrate Labor Day. I will be spending time at our farm having a bonfire – and that means s’mores! I thought I make a card for my niece who won’t be able to join us.
I used Karen Burniston’s Brownie the Cow (we raised black angus!) and Agatha Edges on the front with a SU sentiment from Wetlands. The leaves are from Karen’s All Season Tree.
And here’s the inside – Lots of Pops with a computer generated sentiment.
The logs are from the Pop It Ups Fence Pop Stand and the flames are Cocoa the Horse’s mane and tail and Wiliam the Goat’s goat-tee!
So that’s where I’ll be – sitting with the cows making s’mores!
Check out all the other Crazy’s designs for this challenge and play along! 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
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
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
This month’s Karen Burniston’s Designer Challenge is to create and invite a friend to create to an accordion album! My accordion album is the Rectangular Accordion featuring Brownie the Cow! I used some lovely Park Lane DSP and Brownie is happily eating flowers right off the page 🙂
Inside has Karen’s new Farm Greeting Clear Stamp and another Brownie. To reverse a character, simply cut them out and flip them over! Easy, if you’re using card stock (Basic Black and Soft Suede) and only a thinking if you’re using pretty patterned paper! The flower is the Boho Blossom punch with tiny pearls.
Tomorrow Vickie O’Dell, the Creative Goddess, will wow you with her creation! I “met” Vickie online and she is one of the most creative and upbeat people I know! She is all about DIY and gets involved in almost every craft out there! You can find her at http://vickiodell.com! I’ll link to her project tomorrow 🙂
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!
