Bunny Business


Lucky the Rabbit sending thanks!  This cute little Karen Burniston character with his basket of carrots is just too cute!  Again, I’ve paired Stampin Up’s B.Y.O.P. with Karen’s Pop It Ups Gift Card Holder.  It’s just too perfect 🙂  The Designer Series Paper is Farmer’s Market and (again) is perfect for Lucky!

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Costume Characters Day 1


This month’s Karen Burniston Designer challenge is to dressed up some characters!  I’m starting out with Poppy the Owl dressed up for graduation.  I just love how the Pop It Ups Gift Card Holder goes with Stampin Up’s B.Y.O.P stamp set.

I chose a combo of red, white and blue to match one of our local high schools.  Working backwards – I’ll now have to find a matching gift card!  The border on the card comes with the Gift Card Holder die!  That’s easy 🙂

Poppy’s graduation cap is a small square with a Basic Black Candy dot in the center.  The tassel cord was cut free-hand and the the red tassel is a small piece of Real Red with some slits cut into it, rolled up.  The diploma is a scrap of Whisper White, rolled and tied with Baker’s Twine.

To make the star, punch 3 star.  Hold 2 of them together and cut a sliver out of the center of both at the same time.  Remove the center and alternate the colors.

Hope over to Karen’s Facebook page to see the other characters decked out in their finest!  Hugs, Fran


A Gift for for Baby


A gift card holder for a baby! This uses the fun set B.Y.O.P. (Buy your own present) and Karen Burniston’s new Pop It Ups Gift Card Holder die (coming soon) – with cute, little Snowball the Sheep.  The paper is Watermelon Wonder from the Designer Series Paper Stack with a matching In Color Blossom Accent.

I just mixed and matched the patterns of the DSP and used the matching Watermelon Wonder ink.

This set goes so well with this die!  Hugs, Fran
