Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Hat Attack


What could be better than a barrel of monkeys?  A barrel of monkeys celebrating YOU!  This Designer Challenge is “Hat Attack” and I chose Jinks the Monkey and the Cowboy hat from Props 6.  The barrel is the basket from Barrel Basket with Pop Up.


Everyone is celebrating!


Inside I used the Twist Circle Pop Up die, another Jinks and several hats to continue the celebration.


It is so fun to watch Jinks twist into place!  Make sure to check out Karen’s Facebook page and blog to see all the other ways “Hat Attack” was used 🙂  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston March Designer Challenge – Pull Cards

Pull Cards!  The challenge this month is to use any of the Karen Burniston Pull dies to create cards.  Today I’m using the Oval Pull Card.

PIU Oval Pull Card 04

I started with Stampin Up’s Hello Honey card stock base and the Botanical Gardens Designer Series paper.  The cute palm tree is from one of Karen’s earlier collections called Palm Tree & Pail.  The sentiment is from her new Cheeky Monkey Clear Stamp set. It’s easy to layer designer paper on the cards with Karen’s Pull Card Edges – and it’s fun!

On the inside I added Jinks the Monkey on the pop up piece from the Rectangle Pull Card.  (The oval has a slider and the rectangle has a pop up – you need them both 🙂 )

Rectangular Pull Card 07

Here’s a Rectangle Pull Card.  This is such a great card because it has a nice, big front that can hold a good size image.  If you like to color, this is a perfect place to show off your images.  The girl is a Saturated Canary image.

Inside I added a piece using the Paris Edges.  The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Make sure to pop over to Karen’s blog on Wednesday to see the other creations from the team.  Or find Karen on Facebook and join the community!  Hugs, Fran


Karen Burniston Design Team Challenge Day 2

PIU Jinx 02

Or “Jinx in the Jungle!”  This 6 x 6 card features Karen Burniston’s new character, Jinx, on an action wobble.  He’s backed by some awesome banana embossing!  Doesn’t everyone need a banana embossing folder?  The paper is Stampin Up’s Botanical Garden and Botanical Gardens washi tape.

Inside, he’s joined by a barrel of his friends!  Tossing bananas, no less!  They are sitting in Karen’s new Barrel Basket die on the Lots of Pops die. The Barrel Basket die comes with a Pop Stand if you want the card to open flat. The banana embossing at the top is done on the new Pull Card Edges.
