Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Hats Off!

Merry Day After Christmas! ¬†Today we are doing a Hats Off Challenge – interpret as you might ūüôā ¬†I chose some fun characters to watch the clock for the New Year.

I used Clock and Gears for the focal point of my card and made it a shaker! ¬†It’s popped on foam tape and a window sheet and filled with fun sequins, large gold foil pieces and glitter.

Jolly the Mouse, Honey the Bear and Baker the Beaver are decked out with champagne and fancy hats to wait for midnight.

And when the clock strikes 12………

I used the wonderful Anita Frames Pop UP  and a Stamping UP Balloon punch to get the party started.

Everything is die cut from Gold foil and Black and Silver Glimmer paper. ¬†My kind of party! ¬†Make sure to check out the other Hats Off cards on Karen’s Facebook page or her blog! ¬†Happy New Year! ¬†Hugs, Fran

Merry Mice 01

Twas the night before Christmas and the mice were getting ready to Deck the Halls! ¬†The Challenge today at Crazy 4 Challenges is to put 10 of anything on your card. ¬†I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card decorated for Christmas using Stampin Up’s Merry Mice.

I colored the little mice with my Copic markers – the left side is just stamped as is. ¬† But the right side……

was stamped on a window sheet and flipped over so they could all face towards the clock!  Have fun seeing what all the Crazies did for this 10 challenge!  Hugs, Fran
