Paper Pros Spring Challenge

It’s spring!  This month the Paper Pros challenge is spring and that means flowers to me.  I used the Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Hanging Charm pull card to create this one.  The paper is the Succulent Garden DSP with the bee from Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  The flowers are from the Pop It Ups Flower Pot dies.

The sentiment “Just beecause” is from Pun Intended and “thinking of you” is from Teeny tiny Wishes!  Yes, I was going through all my stuff:)

The bee is on a Mini Action Wobbler.  It gives it a little jiggle as you pull the card open.  I tied the pull tab off with some Succulent Garden and Mint Macaron ribbons.  Make sure to check out all the other spring influenced designs!  Hugs, Fran

Something Pretty

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

Paper Pros Challenge – PI day

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

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Hats Off!

Merry Day After Christmas!  Today we are doing a Hats Off Challenge – interpret as you might 🙂  I chose some fun characters to watch the clock for the New Year.

I used Clock and Gears for the focal point of my card and made it a shaker!  It’s popped on foam tape and a window sheet and filled with fun sequins, large gold foil pieces and glitter.

Jolly the Mouse, Honey the Bear and Baker the Beaver are decked out with champagne and fancy hats to wait for midnight.

And when the clock strikes 12………

I used the wonderful Anita Frames Pop UP  and a Stamping UP Balloon punch to get the party started.

Everything is die cut from Gold foil and Black and Silver Glimmer paper.  My kind of party!  Make sure to check out the other Hats Off cards on Karen’s Facebook page or her blog!  Happy New Year!  Hugs, Fran

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – All I Want For Christmas

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

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Charmed, I’m Sure!

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.

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Hat Attack

piu-jinks-04

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.

Karen Burniston Team Challenge – Boy oh Boy!

no-bones-about-it-07

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.

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Team Inspiration

piu-cascading-tag-01

This challenge for Karen Burniston’s Design Team is to take inspiration from another person on the team so I chose Karen Burniston and Karen Aiken – a Karen and Karen card!  I made a Cascading Tag card using Karen B’s video tutorial and taking inspiration from Karen Aiken’s Cascading Tag card using patterned paper. I started with Stampin Up’s Presents & Pinecones Designer Series paper and Karen’s new Holiday Clear Stamp on the front.  The little present is from her Evergreen Pivot Card.

piu-cascading-tag-01-open

The inside is made with the Adirondack Chair die and the Tag dies – featuring Jolly the Mouse as Santa.  There are some of the new hanging charms dangling from the points. You can click on the picture to make it larger.
