Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - Part 3

Here is my all white card.  I used Honey the bear all in white to make this lovely snowy bear and sat him on the Lucy Label pop up.

Its a very simple card.  A bit of cutting, a bit of embossing and like before I have used a die to emboss into the card instead of cutting.

Looking at it now I feel it needs some ribbon or something but its too late to add, I am cooking the kids their tea and then  it is parent evening so I really can not add later either.

Maybe another day I might just Jazz it up a little bit :)  Make it more interesting.

A closer look

Karen Burniston November Challenge, Part 2

Good Morning,

I'm here with my second card for the November Challenge.

I was shocked at how little blue paper and card I have, I guess its not in my normal colour radar.

I used the Katie Pivot card for this one and a cute Penny Black stamp set

I absolutely LOVE this pivot, if I could chose but one Karen Burniston die
to keep this would be the one.

If you look closely you can see the flowers from the All Seasons Tree has been embossed
down the side of the card.  To Do this use the black embossing mat under the die
and run through the Big Shot machine, instead of cutting it will just press the design into the card.

The bunting is a cute little stamp set from Marianne Designs and its only 99p!!

Happy Birthday stamp is a Taylored Expressions stamp from a set.

I'll be back later today with my WHITE card for the challenge

Karen Burniston Challenge - November - Red, White or Blue

I am a day early with this one, but when you see my card you will know why I wanted to post it today.  

This months theme is Red, White or Blue.  Making cards/creations that are mainly one of those colours.

Here is the first card, I have so far made a red and white card and if I get a chance I will get a blue one done too.  Today being Remembrance Sunday  and seeing the beautiful poppies at the tower of London on the news, we've been seeing red poppies everywhere.  A very moving and beautiful sight.  Sadly didn't make it to see them in real life but I have had many friends that did.

On this card I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs/Karen Burniston Lucy Label 
pop up for the main stage.
Stamped onto that the Penny Black Poppy Fields.  This is an older design (2005)

I coloured most of the image in grey and gave a burst of colour
just colouring the one red one that he is holding.

With today in mind I am saying Thank you to all who gave so much
in order that we could all live our lives as we do now.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning. 
We will remember them

Busy days

Its a busy time for me. Work is always busy with the run up to nec and I've been making a few little samples for their displays.   Then I always do a littke Christmas take at a local school.  Do no sooner had i finished for show i need to start for table.
Here are a couple of samples i made recently
The animal boxes are Taylored Expressions Sack its.  And the rest are Elizabeth Craft Designs and of course the very talented Karen Burniston designs.
All available from Crafts U Love

I saw a tag like this on the Elizabeth Designs Blog.  I believe it was 
one of the other amazingly talented designers that came up with this
tag book idea and I thought that it showcased the tags so well that I would get 
this made up.  Could I be able to remember who it was that made the original I would link it up.

A couple of other little projects that I made using the tags dies

And a bookmark  "read it, read it".

Sorry they are not great photos but it was all last minute rushing!!
