Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Up, Up and Away

Bella & Friends 03

This month’s group challenge is “Up!” so I decided to work with Bella & Friends again to create an encouragement card.  I started with Karen Burniston’s cloud stencil on some Soft Sky card stock.  The image is watercolored.

I love the stencil on this color.  It creates such a soft, pretty background.

Inside I used the Lots of Pops die – one of my favorites because it works with so many different situations.  I left the two side “pops” in and just used the ones in the center.  This Bella is the one with the turtle.  She’s riding in the Hot Air Balloon die (another very versatile die!)  with clouds floating in the background

The banner is just scraps from the Subtles Designer paper pack.  Up, up and away!  Make sure to check Karen’s blog to see all the other designer’s cards!  Hugs, Fran

Today is Day 2 of the Great Outdoors Challenge.  Today I’m heading to the skies with the Elizabeth Craft Design Rainbow Skies die, Karen Burniston’s Partly Cloudy stencil and Stampin Up’s Tin of Cards sentiment.  The base is Daffodil Delight – bright and sunny!

The front balloon has a cloud at the bottom of the basket – which is the top of the Pop It mechanism.

PIU Hot Air Baloon 01

This card was made for a new baby (did you guess that?) Lots of hearts to welcome the new baby.

Inside I used Karen Burniston’s Hot Air Balloon Pop It Ups die.  The paper is a retired Stampin Up paper.  So while I was digging through my retire paper, I found this –

and it had to be a Hot Air Balloon card!

I also used Karen’s coordinating stamp set. What’s Up,  on this card for the sentiment and the little hot air balloons in the background.  This die is super easy to use so dig through your paper and get creating 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Design Challenge Day 1

PIU Oval Pull Card 01

It’s Day 1 for the Karen Burniston Design Team – and it’s Anything New!  For this card I choses the new Oval Pull Card die and the new Hot Air Ballon die.  The card size is 5 1/2 x 7  and uses Stampin Up’s Bloomin’ Love stamp set and Love Blossoms Designer Series paper.

I also used the new Pull Card Edges.  Wow do these dies make decorating your card easy! The mechanism that makes this card move can be placed wherever you choose to put it.  As you pull the card open, the Hot Air Balloon moves – cute!  All the Design Team cards will be on Karen’s blog this month!  Hugs, Fran
