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!

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

Midnight the Bat

PIU Midnight the Bat 01

Karen Burniston has a new Pop It Ups release Coming Soon and it includes some very cute Halloween dies!  This is Midnight the bat and the new Bat Stencil – LOVE!  To make this card, I used the stencil with embossing paste and Stampin Up’s black ink refill to color it.  I stenciled on some retired Stampin Up Halloween patterned paper.  The moon is a punch with some Smoky Slate ink sponged across it.  Midnight the Bat is done in Basic Gray card stock with a red glitter bow tie.  And the stamp is die cut with Karen’s new Labels and Circles dies.

The best part of this card?  Midnight the Bat is on an action wobbler!  He’s so cute wobbling on the front!  There are a lot of fun dies in this release!  Pop over to Karen’s blog or Facebook page to see what else is coming!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Design Challenge Day 2 – Busy Baker

PIU Baker Beaver 03

















This month’s challenge is stencils!  I used Karen Burniston’s new Stage It Stencil – Cherries Layering.  This fun stencil has the cherries on one end and the stems on the other.  Put them together and this is what you get!  This card is 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and the cherries are stenciled with pearlescent embossing paste colored with Real Red ink.  Can you see the shine?

The stems are done in Garden Green ink.  It makes such a pretty background.  Baker the Beaver is celebrating with cherry cupcakes while on an action wobble!  The cupcake is part of Baker’s die and the cherry is from Stampin Up’s Cupcake builder punch. (retiring)

Pop It Ups Design Team Challenge Day 1

The May Design Team Challenge is using the new Stage It Stencils by Karen Burniston!  These stencils are super fun!  They have 2 designs on each stencil that can be used as is or combined to make one darling design!  Today I’m using the Baby Pajamas stencil and Baby Clear stamp, along with Stampin Up’s Something for Baby stamp set and matching die all on a Accordion Rectangle card.  There’s also a surprise in the middle 🙂

PIU SOmething for Baby 01

















This is the front.  I start by stenciling the baby pajama in pink with red hearts on my paper and then die cutting the Accordion Rectangle pieces.  The pram is stamped in Wisteria Wonder.

When you open it up, there’s a new matching baby pajama charm hanging in the center.

I sandwiched the Baker’s Twine between the patterned paper and the card stock.  Then I added some elements from Something For Baby.

PIU Something for Baby 01 poem

















I found a sweet poem about baby girls to decorate the third Rectangle.  So sweet!  Make sure to check out Karen’s blog to see all the other amazing cards from the design team using her new products!  Hugs, Fran
