Paper Pros Spring Challenge

It’s spring!  This month the Paper Pros challenge is spring and that means flowers to me.  I used the Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Hanging Charm pull card to create this one.  The paper is the Succulent Garden DSP with the bee from Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  The flowers are from the Pop It Ups Flower Pot dies.

The sentiment “Just beecause” is from Pun Intended and “thinking of you” is from Teeny tiny Wishes!  Yes, I was going through all my stuff:)

The bee is on a Mini Action Wobbler.  It gives it a little jiggle as you pull the card open.  I tied the pull tab off with some Succulent Garden and Mint Macaron ribbons.  Make sure to check out all the other spring influenced designs!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Charmed, I’m Sure!

This challenge is all about charms – Karen Burniston’s Hanging Charms!  There are lots of charms available and I chose the Holiday Charms for this card.  But I didn’t hang them…..


I used Buster the Dog and the Holiday Charms to create a Christmas card.  The snowflake is hanging from a die cut circle and the package and tree charm decorate the background.  The house is fussy cut from Stampin Up’s Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper.


The snowflake is suspended on some fishing line.



Inside I finished it off with some paw prints from Props 4.  Head over to Karen’s Facebook page to check out all the other charming card for this challenge! Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Team Inspiration


This challenge for Karen Burniston’s Design Team is to take inspiration from another person on the team so I chose Karen Burniston and Karen Aiken – a Karen and Karen card!  I made a Cascading Tag card using Karen B’s video tutorial and taking inspiration from Karen Aiken’s Cascading Tag card using patterned paper. I started with Stampin Up’s Presents & Pinecones Designer Series paper and Karen’s new Holiday Clear Stamp on the front.  The little present is from her Evergreen Pivot Card.


The inside is made with the Adirondack Chair die and the Tag dies – featuring Jolly the Mouse as Santa.  There are some of the new hanging charms dangling from the points. You can click on the picture to make it larger.


Now hop over to Karen’s blog or her Facebook page to see all the inspired designs and make sure to check out her Tuesday post for  even more fun!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Halloween

Halloween!  Spooky or cute?  That’s today’s Karen Burniston Designer Challenge.


I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card the Karen Burniston’s new Labels and Circle die and her Halloween Clear stamp with the new Stampin Up Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the sentiment on 3 layers of the Labels and Circles dies and re-stacked them for the front.


And when you open the card –


A cute little Trick or Treat scene featuring the Twist Circle Pop Up die.  The ghosts and pumpkins are from the Halloween Charms die set.  I left the ghost as 3-D pieces so the pop up (!)



The little Trick or Treat bags are hand cut.  So I guess my answer to the challenge question – spooky or cute – is cute!  Make sure to check out the rest of the designer cards by going to Karen’s blog or Facebook page.  Hugs, Fran

Scrappy Hanging Pull Card

PIU Hanging Charm Pull Card 05


















I had some scrapbook paper that I thought might make a good Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Hanging Charm Pull card.  Using the new Baby Charms and the paper on the page, I made a 5 x 7 card for a new bundle of joy.

The card is flat, so I put a few more elements on the back for writing the message.

Almost makes me want to scrapbook again!  Hugs, Fran


For Your Shower

PIU Umbrella 01













Here’s a 6 x 6 Shower card made with Karen Burniston’s Stage It Stencils – Rain, and Baby Charms.    The Night of Navy base was cut 6 x 11 and scored at 6″.  This leaves you a 1″ area at the bottom for your sentiment.  The rain was done in a Micorbead Embossing paste and Wisteria Wonder ink.

This is the inside (and kind of the outside too!)  The sentiment is computer generated.  Hugs, Fran

It’s almost the wedding season and these new new bride and groom Hanging Charms from Karen Burniston for the Pop It Ups Hanging Charms Pull cards are perfect!

This card is 6 x 6 and  the middle square is edged in pearls.  The bride and groom are separate charms, so you can use them as you need them!  The sentiments are from Karen’s new Best Wishes Clear stamp. I kept my card “postcard style” – with a white back so I can write a nice message.

The card stock is the beautiful Irresistibly Yours from Stampin Up! and it has beautiful patterns embossed on them – hard to see.  It’s all tied off with white satin ribbon.  Hope you’ll find lots of uses for these darling charms.  I will!  (hint, hint!)  Hugs, Fran

Day 2 – Pull Cards

PIU Hanging Charm Pull Card 04

I LOVE coffee!  But more than that, I love drinking coffee with friends.  Here’s a Hanging Charm Pull Card to celebrate friends and coffee! Using the new Karen Burniston Hanging Charm Pull Card die with the little coffee cup die and Stampin Up’s Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper, I did a simple card.

When you pull it up, you complete the sentiment. You can use this die to make flat cards (postcards) or decorate the front of a folding card – your choice.  Today I did a folded card.

Cup Pop Stand

Here’s a card I did for the Elizabeth Craft Design blog. Today  I’ll be using the Cup Pop Stand to create a card.

PIU Cup Pop Stand 01

I started with the Swirly Flourish Stencil and Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words Hello. I die cut 3 of the words and glued them together to get some height.  Create a varied look with the stencil by changing the pressure of your sponge or ink applicator as you move from top to bottom.  Then I splattered over that with dark brown ink and sponged the edges.  Gold foil down the side and gold brads go with the gold filament behind the words.

Here’s the inside. Cut a 4 x 10 3/4 piece of paper and die cut the pop stand on the center fold.  I repeated the sponging with the stencil on just the 2 corners.

The cup has a vellum card stock “swirl of smoke.”

PIU Cup Pop Stand 01 cup

The cup is cut from red polka dot paper twice.  Flip the die for the second cut if your paper is blank or has a different pattern on back. The heart on the cup is from the Hanging Charm Pull Card tied with a little bit of Baker’s Twine.  Cut the saucer from red paper and sponge the design on with red ink. Then die cut the saucer with a circle die.

To hold the Gift Card, I die cut the flourishes from  the Oval Landscape Accordion and glued them down just at the three tips.  It’s so cute – but I ended up using a small glue dot on the card to keep it from slipping during mailing.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s Pop It Up Wednesday!
