Karen Burniston Lucky Pull Tab card.

Hello here is one of my other Pull Tab cards I created this week using Karen Burnistons dies. This one is stamped with Karen's Lucky the Rabbit stamps set.

The card I used is from payperbox and is really fantastic quality at a great price. Perfect for card making as they make colour co-coordinating card. I had the pleasure of meeting Jon the director of the company at the craft show in Birmingham.

 I was able to stamp Lucky the Rabbit and colour him in with pro-markers without the ink or the colour running.

Gorjuss Karen Burniston Pull Tab Card...

Hello it's been quite a while since my last post I've been busy trying to make an english paper piece quilt. It's taking a loooooooooong time.
Helen over at the dining room drawers and I took a little break last weekend to go to the stitches show at the NEC Birmingham to meet the very lovely Karen Burniston and Stamping Caz in person.

We had a fab time and even got to have a go at a few make and take activities.

I got to see all Karens new dies, one die in particular caught my eye. The new pull tab card die set. As soon as I got home I had a play and created this Gorjuss card.

I stamped the Gorjuss girl on to shrinkies paper and heated it in the oven to reduce its size.

I added tags from the tag pivot set to the pull tab.

 The die set makes it so quick and easy to create lovely cards I was able to make five in one afternoon.

Karen Burniston October design challenge

Hello and welcome to October! This year is truely flying by too fast. So this months challenge is one I really enjoyed. Karen challenged us to 'Characters in Costume' something I love to do. I chose Chilly the penguin for this challenge and created this very cute snow-penguin.

I used the carrot from Karens new 'lucky the rabbit' die set which is coming soon to elizabeth craft designs. The cute christmassy hat is from the Karens merry and bright pop it up props set #5.

Have you seen the new stamp sets you can also get now on elizabeth craft designs? I stamped Karens 'marry christmas' with the 'and a happy new year' on Karens tags from the tags pivot dies set and pegged them to my card. The candy cane that is included in Jolly the mouse die set is an excellent accessory for the frosty all seasons tree.

 The adirondack chair pop up die set makes for a lovely scene.

I hope you enjoyed looking at this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Don't forget to check out all the other wonderful cards the rest of the design team have created.

Karen Burniston September Design Challenge...

Hello this is my second card for this months challenge which was to 'celebrate' with any accordion frame edges. I had some very happy post last week which included the new landscape accordion die by Karen burniston.
I chose to use it to create this portrait christmasy tent card. I cut out the centre of the card as I did in my easel card which was featured on the Elizabeth craft Designs blog. I then added the holiday house, the evergreen edge and the pine trees from the evergreen pivot card on each of the folds to create the 3D effect.

I use the microfine glitter to create a glittery snowy scene.
