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

Today the Crazies are Celebrating! This is Raquel’s son’s birthday so the theme is celebrating those special people in our lives. I chose Karen Burniston’s Baker the Beaver to star on my card. This card is 4 x 8 1/2 so it can hold Baker’s enormous cake! (Looks like he needs some help!) Baker and the cake are on an action wobble.
I used several Stampin UP sets on this card – Build a Birthday, Birthday Fiesta and Birthday Banners! Enjoy all the celebrating going on with the Crazies! Hugs, Fran
This challenge uses the sketch (which I sort of followed!) I started with a huge 6 x 8 card and Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Midnight the Bat and Halloween Scene dies. He is hanging out on Stampin Up’s Sliding Star Framelits so he spins around the tree branch.
Spinners are hard to put down!
The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Spooky fun and the DSP is the new Halloween Night Specialty paper. Check out the other Crazies designs for this sketch! Hugs, Fran
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
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.
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……
was stamped on a window sheet and flipped over so they could all face towards the clock! Have fun seeing what all the Crazies did for this 10 challenge! Hugs, Fran
I am the guest player at Crazy 4 Challenges this month and the theme for today is “Don’t Wear White after Labor Day!” So we were challenged to make an all white card 🙂 I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base (5 1/2 x 11) and embossed the background layer with Stampin Up’s Gently Falling embossing folder. The beautiful layered sleigh from Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Sleigh Gift Card Holder and some snow flakes from her All Season Tree.
Inside is a winter white scene adding in Pop It Ups Iron Fence and Holiday House. The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s new Holly Berry Happiness
It’s hard to see the sparkle but trust me, it’s there! I went kind of crazy with the glitter!
All the Crazies have created beautiful white cards so make sure to check them out! And let me know if you follow the “don’t wear white” rule. (I do – at least with shoes and purses!) Have a great day – Hugs, Fran
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!
And as you peer through the card, you’ll see it just gets worse 🙂
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
