Just going through some of the stuff in my craft room and I came across these stickers from Elizabeth Crafts and thought I’d better use them. I made the card with Karen Burniston’s Spiral Pull card die and used a retired SU stencil for the background. I added the dots with a white gel pen and white embossed the sentiment – Love & Affection – on to some black card stock.
Here’s the inside…………and another card!
Same idea – just Calypso Coral for the card stock.
You should be warned that I found a lot of these stickers! You might see some more designs soon! Hugs, Fran
It’s Pi day and the Paper Pros are celebrating ! I started with Karen Burniston’s Rectangular Pull card and the Lawn Fawn Science of Love stamp set. I drew the chalk board on some Basic Black card stock.
The paper is the In Color envelope paper – lots of cute designs. I did the sentiment on my computer.
The inside has more images from the stamp set and a paper pieced pie.
So you decide which PI is for you! Make sure to check out the other Paper Pros take on this challenge. Hugs, Fran

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
This challenge is all about charms – Karen Burniston’s Hanging Charms! There are lots of charms available and I chose the Holiday Charms for this card. But I didn’t hang them…..
I used Buster the Dog and the Holiday Charms to create a Christmas card. The snowflake is hanging from a die cut circle and the package and tree charm decorate the background. The house is fussy cut from Stampin Up’s Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper.
The snowflake is suspended on some fishing line.
Inside I finished it off with some paw prints from Props 4. Head over to Karen’s Facebook page to check out all the other charming card for this challenge! Hugs, Fran
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
This team challenge is Boy oh Boy! – masculine cards! I chose Stampin Up’s No Bones About It set and Fiesta Birthday Designer Series paper paired with Karen Burniston’s Lorna Label Pop Up die.
The Lorna Label dies have matching pieces that create the center section. I used them on both the front and inside! It makes it so easy to put this card together.
Make sure to check out the other cards on Karen’s Facebook page! 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.
To see the rest of the rainbow, hop over to Karen’s Facebook page! Hugs, Fran
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
