I say “Ghouly!”
This challenge is a Halloween challenge – Girly or Ghouly. I started with the Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Accordion Circle Card die, the Bat Stencil, Iron Fence Pop Up AND the Halloween Scene die! Yep – I went a little crazy!
And as you peer through the card, you’ll see it just gets worse 🙂
On the left inside panel I continued with the fence and spider – cutting out the center of the Accordion Circle die.
The center panel uses the Halloween Charms dies – ghost and pumpkins. Love the 3-D ghost!
The bats and spiders are cut from Stampin UP’s Black Glimmer paper and the sentiment is from Spooky Fun. And it was fun putting this scene together. Make sure you check out Karen’s Facebook page and blog for more spooky or girly inspiration! Hugs, Fran
Day 2 of the Pop It Ups Designer Challenge brings me to Father’s Day. I used Karen Burniston’s Circle Accordion Album and Stampin Up’s Swirly Bird to make a fun Father’s Day card for any sea loving dad!
I also used Stampin Up”s Guy Greetings for the middle of my card. I love how the Ring Album die lets you chose the length of your card! Hope you enjoy this nautical look. Make sure to check out Karen’s blog to see the other summer cards! Hugs, Fran
One more Inspiration Challenge card! This one is inspired by Frances Byrne (and her amazing scenes!) I did a mixed Circle/Ring Accordion Album using some Mo Manning digital stamps, Stampin Up sentiment, punches and paper.
I also used some Ring Frame Edges on the middle pieces. The flag at the top is shown on both sides and makes the card measure 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.
Then I sprinkles stars all around – various punches and dies 🙂 Make sure to hop over to Karen’s Facebook page to check out all the challenge pieces! They really are inspiring!.
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!
Make sure you check Karen’s Facebook page to see all the creations this month! Hugs, Fran
This is Vicki O’Dell’s card for the Karen Burniston Designing with Friends challenge! She chose the Circle Accordion die and made a beautiful thank you card. You can see the rest of her card here. Thanks, Vicki, for playing with me 🙂 Hugs, Fran
My second card for Karen Burniston’s Design Team challenge is for Thanksgiving. I used her Circle Accordion die and lots of punches to create a turkey! My turkey is punched from Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Early Espresso and Crushed Curry. The Designer Series paper is SU’s Color Me Autumn. I went around the circle with the KB Rings Frame Edges 1 and lots of Cajun Craze Candy Dots. The leaves are punched from the SU Bird punch and finished off with an Early Espresso button and twine.
Inside shows off a greeting from Mingle All the Way (Holiday Mini). I hope you’ll jump over to Karen’s Facebook page to see an “entire year” of ideas from all the designers!
It suddenly turned Fall around here this weekend! A perfect time for Karen Burniston’s Halloween challenge – and a great time to start creating those spooky creations. I used the Accordion Circle die with the solid edge and the new Tee Hee Hee set from the Stampin Up Holiday Mini. On the front, the cauldron, bubbling away. (Those bubbles are some old floral/vase fillers)
Do you think the witch was doing her laundry before the big day? Or just conjuring up her spooky attire?
Stamp Set – Tee Hee Hee
Card stock – Basic Black, Whisper White, Back to Black DSP
Ink – Memento Tux Black, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz
Etc – Karen Burniston Accordion Circle die, Pear Pizzazz ribbon
There will be lots of spooky inspiration on Karen’s Facebook page. Grab your broom and head over to see what the other designers have created! Hugs, Fran
This little Circle Accordion album (Karen Burniston) uses Baby We’ve Grown on the front with a little rose and some punched leaves. The pacifier in the corner is from my stash – no idea where it’s from! I do love the bunny in this set!
Open it shows the shaker piece in the middle and a sentiment from Something to Say. To make the shaker, I die cut a circle from the center of the accordion piece. Then I die cut 2 circle from acetate and sewed around them, leaving a small opening at the top which I filled with punched stars and hearts. I added some pink micro beads and glued the opening shut with glue dots. Attaching it to the opening with glue dots, I made a separate ring to finish off the back.
Stamp Sets – Baby We’ve Grown, Something to Say
Card stock – Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Soft Subtles DSP, Silver Glimmer paper, Melon Mambo
Ink – Memento Tux Black
Etc – Circle Accordion Album (Karen Burniston), Itty Bitty Accessories pack, micro beads, Hearts Border punch, Bird punch
I fully intended to use the Ring Accordion Album to make this card, but grabbed the other and half way through before I realized what I had done! Silly me! But I’m happy with how it turned out. Hugs, Fran
