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

Happy Winter Tag Book Tag

Oh goodness, I’ve been gone for a long time!  So here you go – a post and an explanation!  This cute card uses Karen Burniston’s new Tag Book die turned so that it’s a vertical tag.  I used Stampin Up’s the beautiful Year of Cheer DSP adhered to the retired brushed gold card stock,  along with a Gold foil snowflake and the Snowflake Sentiment stamp set to decorate the front.  After covering the front of the Tag Book with the DSP, I added a foil snowflake, gold thread, then a white Glimmer paper snowflake, and a silver Faceted Gem.  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, then punched out with the Everyday Label punch.  The top is tied off with the Gold Metallic Edge ribbon. Sparkle!

 

The Tag Book drops open (like a tag!)  I’ve die cut the center of the two little squares and used the trim piece to sandwich the snowflake from the KB Charm set on a piece of clear fishing string and finished the inside off with a snowman from her Snowman Twist Circle die.  To make his little scarf, I die cut the hat band 4 times and pieced it together.  The die cut words are from the Winter Words die. The tag is finished off with a loop of gold floss that is long enough to go through both top circles on the closed tag so you can hang it on your package.

Here’s a close up of the details and also a better idea of the actual color!  All the sparkle was really keeping it from photographing correctly 🙂

If you’re still reading, my mother has been sick and I am taking this time to spend it with her.  I will continue to post here but it will be sporadic.  Thanks for understanding and I hope you’ll continue to check back.  Hugs always, Fran

Paper Pros Winter Birthday Challenge

 

This month’s Paper Pro Winter Birthday came just in time because Winter birthday cards and tags are a must in my household!  We have 5 December birthdays – plus some in January and February!  I used the new Karen Burniston Tag Book die turned vertically to make a birthday shaker tag.  The paper is Stampin Up’s Year of Cheer Specialty paper and Silver and Red Foil.  The flower die cut is from Altenew,  Inside the shaker piece are an assortment of sequins in white and silver.

Inside I embossed Stampin Up’s Flirty Flowers in silver to extend up the tag. I added some pretty silver ribbon and red twine to finish it off.  The twine will pull through both holes to hold it closed.  The Tag Book makes an awesome tag!  Enjoy all the other creations for this challenge by following the links below.  Hugs, Fran
