Paper Pro Challenge – Summer Road Trip

The challenge this month is Summer Road Trip and I’m taking a motorcycle ūüôā ¬†This set is called One Wild Ride and I used some retired DSP to make a Joy Fold card with a surprise inside. ¬†The image and sentiment are embossed on the DSP and the little sign is popped up to hold the card shut.

On the inside is Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle pop up die! ¬†It pops up the badge that is also embossed, this time in white.

So I’m hitting the road with my Twist Circle die! ¬†Check out the other Summer Road Trip ideas. ¬†Hugs, Fran

Sealed with Love

Valentines! ¬†Yes, it’s time to start thinking about them. ¬†Using the new Sealed with Love, I created a special Valentine. ¬†On the front I used the new Sending Love Designer Series paper, Sealed with Love stamp set and the Sweet & Sassy heart dies. ¬†The heart behind the sentiment is cut from Glimmer paper.

Inside I made a heart pop up! ¬†Following Karen Burniston’s directions for a Twist Circle Panel Card, I changed the panel to hearts. ¬†All you need is 4 hearts that are approximately 3 inches tall. ¬†I adhered them together so they measure 9″ long and scored at the same measurements in the video. ¬†The “i love” was die cut from Sunshine Wishes and the “you” is from Hello You thinlits. ¬†The glimmer hearts are from my stash. ¬†I hope you’ll try it! ¬†Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – All I Want For Christmas

This is challenge is to use the die that you would most like to see under the tree (if you didn’t already have it!) ¬†I have to say that my current favorite Pop It Ups die is the Twist Circle! ¬†Now before I show you the card I need to say that not only do we celebrate Christmas during December – we also have 5 birthdays! ¬†That’s right – 5! ¬†So with that in mind………

Happy Birthday! ¬†This card is 4 1/2 x 8 1/2, featuring SU’s Birthday Fiesta stamp ¬†and coordinating paper. ¬†The balloon is coated with Glossy Accents and the llama and balloon are popped up with fun foam.


The llama is holding the hand drawn balloon string in his mouth (almost looks like a mustache!)

But the magic happens when you open the card!

The center balloon flies up into place creating a happy scene! ¬†It’s a wonderful die! ¬†Check out what the other designers are doing on Karen’s Facebook page or her blog! ¬†Happy times! ¬†Hugs, Fran

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 ūüôā ¬†Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Team Challenge – ROYGBIV

Time for another Karen Burniston Team Challenge –¬†ROYGBIV! ¬†The colors of the rainbow only monochromatic. ¬†I chose the color Pink ūüôā


I started with a retired Stampin Up sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday and used Karen’s Labels and Circles die for the front. ¬†Lots of pink and a little bling finish it off.


The inside is a Pop It Ups Twist Circle Panel card with lots of cake and presents. ¬†The cake is from Stampin Up’s Endless Birthday Wishes. ¬†And more bling – of course. ¬†The video on how to make this card can be found here.

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

Crazy 4 Challenges – 10 Things

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.

Merry Mice 01 open

Inside you find 10 mice getting ready to celebrate along with Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Twist Circle and Clocks & Gears.

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