Tag: Castle Pop Up

By the Sea

These little sets are from StampingBella, the Littles Palm Tree set and Sandcastle set, and they were perfect paired with Karen Burniston’s Castle die.  For the front I used the Karen Burniston Tropical Scene die to create the sand and water.  Then I colored the little sunbathers and accessories with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I covered the shells, sun, and the sunglasses with Glossy Accents and added some washi tape to the bottom. The sentiment is Stampin Up’s Eastern Beauty.

But the fun is inside-

Using the Karen Burniston Castle Pop Up die, I made a sandcastle.  The beach babies and other beach accessories decorate the inside and the Tropical scene die continues to the inside.

The castle is so cute and very easy to assemble.  And a drawbridge!  Hope you enjoy the sun and sand!  Hugs, Fran


Karen Burniston Design Team Challenge for February – Castles

This month’s Karen Burniston Design Team Challenge is Castles featuring Karen’s new Castle Pop Up die.  I made some boxes and tags with the Castle die, Princess and Mermaid die, Knight and Dragon die and the Word set die 5 – Royalty.  This tag uses the Castle die in Smoky Slate, Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo.  The sky was done with Distress Oxide inks and the grass is Pear Pizzaz.  The little princess wears a Pool Party dress embellished with some Dazzling Diamonds. (Sounds like we’re at the Oscars!)  The tag itself is from the Karen Burniston Tag Book. I just used the Castle die flat – no score lines – across the tag.

Every Princess needs a box for their gift!  Here I used the Castle die flat across a box.  I finished it off with some birds from the Karen Burniston Outdoor Scene die.  It took me 3 1/2 castle strips to do this box.  (A retired SU box – any box would work.)  I tied it off with some pink ribbon from my stash.

Now for your little Knight –

This was done the same way as the Princess tag using Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Smoky Slate.  I added some Glossy Accents to his shield.

For his box I added the cute, cute dragon in Daffodil Delight!

So there’s the Castle die used flat!  Check out all the other designers and see what they’ve done with the Castle!  Hugs, Fran
