Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Hi Crafting Friends
I am back with my second card for the Designer Challenge and this months challenge is to show off the STAGE IT STENCILS.  Karen has 12 stencils in her line and you can see them all HERE

I will tell you the story about how this card come about, I was "chatting" to Karen on Facebook and saying that I didn't know what I was going to make and that I was going into shed to watch Game of Thrones and I would see what I made.  To that Karen said "Well obviously you need to make an Iron Throne using the Adirondack Chair! Ha." that got the old cogs in my brain working and that is the inspiration around my  GAME OF BONES card.

The front is mega simple.  I downloaded the Game of Thrones font and printed it on cardstock.
Cut from the Accordion Fancy Label decorator shape and edged with ink.
The paper is from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Through the Lens STONE paper pack.
This paper pack is perfect for this theme, especially the bleakness of Winterfell.

The words also a tongue in cheek bow down to "you know nothing Jon Snow" line
that is used several times in the programme by Ygritte.

Here you can see a fun Buster conversion, I was pondering making a 
Kalisi from Whiskers the cat!  But went for one of my favourite characters Jon Snow.

I have used the Petite Flourish Stencil, another decorator piece from the Fancy
Accordion, Buster the dog, Adirondack Chair Pop up, Props 4 for one of the bones.

I used the stencil two ways on this card.   I inked through with a brown ink pad on the wording panel and I also used Minc Reactive Screen Ink and foiled it with Holographic Foil.

Karen Burniston dies can be purchased from Crafts U Love in the UK
or Elizabeth Craft Designs in the USA.  Both places ship worldwide.

Tomorrow you must check out Karen Burnistons blog for her blog post and do not forget to check out the links on the left of my page to see all the other creations from the DT members.

I hope you have enjoyed this card. Perfect for Game of Throne fans.

Steampunk Hoppy

I am here with a card that I made last night using the new charms that Karen Burniston has released.  These are the Steampunk Charms, made to go with the Hanging Charm Pull card but of course work well with any card.

 I am entering this as my first Challenge card for Karen Burniston - I got caught out by dates and since this card fits the bill I am using this one.  

This months challenge is Stage it Stencils - Make a project of any theme incorporating one or more stencils.

The top hat, Wings, key and gears are all from that one set.
And you can just about make out that I have also used a gears stencil for this card.
Perfect for a masculine touch.  Of course being too serious is hard for me so I 
injected some humour by adorning "Hoppy" with the top hat and gear eyepiece.

You can read all about the new Spring release HERE
and you can see more photos.

I will be off to my shed later to create a new card for tomorrows entry.
All I know is there will be stencils and possibly a bit of foil!

Until tomorrow
