Karen Burniston August Challenge Day 1

This month’s challenge for the Karen Burniston Design Team may be the hardest challenge we’ve ever done – select another DT member’s card to case!  There are SO many great cards and it was so hard to make a choice!  For today’s card, I chose one from the Red, White or Blue challenge that Shelly Hickox  did in all white!

I did it up in color using the same Circle Accordion Album die  – but I used the new Merry Christmas Pop Stand die to create the trees in the middle.

When you open it up – there’s Ruby waiting to greet you!  The wreath in the middle is Stampin UP’s Wondrous Wreath, stamped twice so it shows on both sides.

The little trees are hanging from fishing line and there is lots of Crystal Effects on the wreath, Rudys’ nose and wreath.

I also added a banner to the last panel so you can write a greeting.  The stamp is Karen’s Merry & Bright!

Feeling Jolly Day 2

PIU Jolly 02 front


The mice are still decorating!  Today is day 2 of Karen Burniston’s Design Teams Christmas in July and I’m still playing with Jolly the Mouse.  This card is a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 card in Real Red with the little mice stacked up high to put the star on top of the tree.  The tree is from the Christmas Trees Pop Stand.  I just die cut and embossed 4 of them and stacked them off the side of the paper.  The present is from the Evergreen Pivot card and was cut in Merry Moments Designer Series paper.  The Santa hat is from Props 5 – lots of cute, cute, cute props!

Christmas in July Pop It Ups Designer Challenge

PIU Jolly 01 front


It’s the most wonderful time of the year – a new collection of dies from Karen Burniston!  This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2″ card.  Big enough to hold all the wonderful Christmas joy inside 🙂 The sentiment is a retired SU stamp, Christmas Messages,  and the paper is the new Merry Moments Designer Series paper.  The swirl across the front is from the new Merry Christmas Pop Ups die.

And inside meet Jolly the Mouse!  He and his friend are decorating the new Pop It Ups Christmas Trees Pop Stand!  The tree is so much fun to put together!  You can use it alone – or with any of the new characters as I’ve done here.

This is a better view of the mice.  I snipped off their tails and tucked them behind them so they wouldn’t stick out of the card.

Head over to Karen’s Facebook page to see what the rest of the team is doing with these new dies and get a head start on your Christmas Pop It Ups!  Hugs, Fran
