Karen Burniston December Challenge Day 2

PIU Christmas front

Everyone is coming for Christmas!  Today my card features all the farm critters (plus Jolly) in true Home for Christmas style.  This 6 x 6 card is big – but so’s the family 🙂

PIU Christmas left front

Brownie is sporting a Santa-stash and glasses.  Cheeper is holding a candy cane.  And Jolly is bringing a present of cheese.  To attach the characters, the bottom layer (Brownie) is flat on the card.  The next layer is (Cheepers) is attached to Brownie.  And then Jolly is up on pop dots.  This gives it looks of dimension without being crazy.

PIU Christmas right front

William is helping with the garland and Snowball is wearing his Santa hat.  All the presents are popped up. The sentiment is from Project Life by Stampin Up Seasonal Snapshot 2015.

PIU Christmas open

Inside, Cocoa the Horse is already home!  The garland  – which is pieces from the wreath in the Sleigh Gift Card die set – surrounds the Agatha Edge at the top.

The barn is decorated!  The little candle is the chimney from the House die.  The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Cozy Christmas!

Haunted Barn

Haunted Barn 01 front

Are you ready to decorate for Halloween?  How about a haunted barn with decked out characters?  This barn is from SVGCuts.com and is called – Haunted Barn!  I used some retired Stampin Up Halloween Designer Series paper and LOTS of black card stock to create this cute 3-D.

Haunted Barn left 01

There are some really cute details – the corn stalks, lanterns and bats, to name a few.

Haunted Barn 01 Cheepers

And a Haunted Barn needs haunted barnyard animals!  I used Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups characters to create my scene.  First is Cheepers the Chicken appearing as a zombie.

Haunted Barn 01 Brownie

Brownie the cow is a vampire.  His cape was hand cut from washi tape over card stock.

Haunted Barn 01 William

And William the Goat is the devil 🙂  His cape is cut the same way as Brownie’s.

Haunted Barn 01 lit

The barn is lit from within and really looks cute at night.

And to make this entire ensemble even better, all the characters are on sale this week!!  Happy haunted shopping spree 🙂 Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Day 2

PIU Halloween 01

Characters in Costumes – Day 2 🙂  And which holiday makes us think of costumes more than Halloween?  So starting with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 card, stamped with this awesome image from Stampin Up’s Six Sayings (hostess set in the Holiday Mini)

PIU Halloween 01 open

And here are the characters!  Everyone is dressed up in their costume for Halloween and popping up on a Lots of Pops die.   The All Season Tree is in the background.  The wagon is hand cut.

PIU Halloween 01 detail

Cheepers the Chicken is dressed as a cowboy. Chilly the Penguin is wearing an Owl mask.  William the Goat is wearing funny glasses and a bow tie.  And Cocoa the Horse is dressed up as bandit.

Hope there’s lots of chocolate involved!  Take time to check out all the other Characters in Costumes on Karen’s Facebook Page.  Hugs, Fran

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C302

I’ve been asked to be the guest designer with the “Crazies” over at Crazy 4 Challenges this month!  The first challenge is to make a card showing how you’re going to celebrate Labor Day.  I will be spending time at our farm having a bonfire – and that means s’mores!  I thought I make a card for my niece who won’t be able to join us.

PIU Brownie 05

 

I used Karen Burniston’s Brownie the Cow (we raised black angus!) and Agatha Edges on the front with a SU sentiment from Wetlands.  The leaves are from Karen’s All Season Tree.

And here’s the inside – Lots of Pops with a computer generated sentiment.

PIU Brownie 05 detail

 

The logs are from the Pop It Ups Fence Pop Stand and the flames are Cocoa the Horse’s mane and tail and Wiliam the Goat’s goat-tee!

So that’s where I’ll be – sitting with the cows making s’mores!

Check out all the other Crazy’s designs for this challenge and play along!  Hugs, Fran
