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 🙂

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  – which is pieces from the wreath in the Sleigh Gift Card die set – surrounds 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!

Haunted Barn

Haunted Barn 01 front

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.

Haunted Barn left 01

There are some really cute details – the corn stalks, lanterns and bats, to name a few.

Haunted Barn 01 Cheepers

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.

Haunted Barn 01 Brownie

Brownie the cow is a vampire.  His cape was hand cut from washi tape over card stock.

Haunted Barn 01 William

And William the Goat is the devil 🙂  His cape is cut the same way as Brownie’s.

Haunted Barn 01 lit

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

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Day 2

PIU Halloween 01

Characters in Costumes – Day 2 🙂  And which holiday makes us think of costumes more than Halloween?  So starting with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 card, stamped with this awesome image from Stampin Up’s Six Sayings (hostess set in the Holiday Mini)

PIU Halloween 01 open

And here are the characters!  Everyone is dressed up in their costume for Halloween and popping up on a Lots of Pops die.   The All Season Tree is in the background.  The wagon is hand cut.

PIU Halloween 01 detail

Cheepers the Chicken is dressed as a cowboy. Chilly the Penguin is wearing an Owl mask.  William the Goat is wearing funny glasses and a bow tie.  And Cocoa the Horse is dressed up as bandit.

Hope there’s lots of chocolate involved!  Take time to check out all the other Characters in Costumes on Karen’s Facebook Page.  Hugs, Fran

Congrats from Cheepers

PIU Cheepers 02

Running late today, but I wanted to share “Cheepers” and her Pop It Ups Rectangular Pull Card.  On the outside I used Karen Burniston’s Farm Greetings Clear Stamps and Cheepers, along with a Stampin Up Star Framelit.

PIU Cheepers 02 open

Inside is the double of Cheepers and Itty Bitty Banners on the Pop up part.  Fun – and useful this time of year!  Hugs, Fran

Fabulous Cheepers

PIU Cheepers 01

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.

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 – 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!

PIU From the Herd 02 open

Inside is Cheepers the Chicken (1023), Brownie the Cow (1022), and Virgil the Pig (1024)!  And they are all celebrating 🙂
