Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Bitty Ball Pop-Up and Pretty Springy Ball Box template. I have been very busy trying to make these gift card boxes with fun pop-ups and when I found a Gingerbread patterned paper, I had to make a Gingerbread pop-up!

Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Fireplace Pop-Up and Holiday House die sets. Since the Fireplace Pop-Up came out, I've only used it once to make my "Haunted Mansion" Fireplace Pop-Up card. Now with Christmas just around the corner, I am making cards for family and decided to make a Christmas card using the Fireplace Pop-Up.

Hello and welcome! Today's card features Karen Burniston's Parcel Pop-Up die set. I have only just purchased this set and once it came I knew I had to make a gift card pop-up card. With Christmas coming, both my kids have asked for gift cards, so I made this for my daughter.here. Karen's assembly videos are full of great tips when it comes to putting her pop-up dies together. Also, at the end she usually showcases different cards made by herself and the Design Team.

From there I created a red dog house with a gray roof, which I sponged a darker gray ink on to using the die as a stencil.

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of Sneak Peek Week for the new Karen Burniston December 2022 New Release! I am so excited to show you another great card, this time using the brand-new Wedding Charms dies. For this card, I used Karen Burniston's Label Charm Pop-Up die set along with the new Wedding Charms.
This new set comes with a bride and groom, a pair of champaign glasses, a set of wedding rings and the "Best Wishes" sentiment.
For this card I started with an A2 side fold card using an off-white smooth heavy weight cardstock. Using Karen Burniston's Rectangle - Crosshatch dies in the largest size, I cut three panels using this beautiful wedding paper from Echo Park - "Just Married".
I die cut the front panel die from the Label Charm Pop-Up (which is the one that turns when you open the card), but first I measured the center point so that I positioned the die exactly in the middle. I then measured the center point for two of the patterned paper panels so that when I die cut the patterned paper it would fit perfectly on the front and inside panel of the card.
Once I added all the pieces of patterned paper, I then created an outer edge to go around the cut out on the front and inside panel of the card. I used a pink cardstock that was similar to the pink of the patterned paper. I had to do this by hand because there isn't a die in the Label Charm set that allows you to do with the larger die cut. You can with the smaller die cuts, but not the largest.
I then die cut the inside pieces that attach to the front label. I used the back side of the patterned paper I used for the background of the card. I glued these into the card with Lineco Neutral pH glue which you can get through Karen Burniston's online store.
I then die cut some center pieces, one for the middle "label charm" and one for the mounted label charm. These pieces have a really nice, pierced look around the edges which I really like! Just gives them a little extra decoration.
I then die cut out all my Wedding Charms. For the bride and groom, I die cut the brides dress from white cardstock and glitter cardstock. For the groom's tux, I die cut the tux in black and red and then the small piece for the shirt in white cardstock. I trimmed the bow tie from the red cardstock piece and added it to the black tux.

Hello and welcome once again to the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. For December we were each asked to pick a theme and use the Fireplace Pop-Up Die. I chose Beach/Summer for my theme and came up with a tiki beach hut using the Fireplace Pop-Up Die as well as several other fantastic dies from Karen Burniston.Rectangles - Crosshatch dies in the largest size, cut 3 pieces from 110lb smooth white cardstock. Two of these pieces were used to create the beach theme on the inside and one was for the front.
I used the vine from the Monkey and Lion die set and added little flowers to it using the flower die from the Tiny Trees Pop-Up. For the background, I made the sun from the Tropical Scene set and the two palm trees came from the Palm Tree Pop-Up. I added details to everything using my Copic markers. I die cut the word "enjoy" from Word Set 6 - Summer, twice using yellow cardstock and black heavy weight cardstock. I glued them together to give the word some dimension and to bulk up the cardstock as it was very thin.
For the front of the card, I wanted to keep it simple, but still carry on the same theme. I die cut the waves and small beach hill with the palm trees on it from the Tropical Scene set and added the shark from the Sea Animals set. Then I die cut the words Hello and Sunshine from Word Set 6 - Summer. I cut the words three times each, once using colored cardstock and twice from black. This really makes the words pop out. I didn't put a lot of detail on the front because the inside of the card is the real surprise!
There are so many unique ways to use the Fireplace Pop-Up die and this is just one of many! I look forward to seeing all your creations on the Pop-Up Peeps Facebook page. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Hello and welcome to day 1 of Sneak Peek Week for the new Karen Burniston December 2022 release. I am starting this week with this box card using the new Wide Woven Basket Box Card die set.
Woven Basket Box Card die set which you can purchase from her online store. If you just want to make a square shaped wide woven box card, then you only need the new die set.
For this card I made a rectangular shaped box. I used a light blue gingham patterned paper to look like fabric woven through the basket.
I die cut two trees from the Tiny Trees Pop-Up and added flower blossoms on the trees to give them a spring look.
I used the Spring Animals die set to create the bunnies and chicks. I added some Easter eggs from the Easter Charms die set. I also used the "Happy Easter" sentiment on the front of the basket from the Easter Charms die set as well. I added details to the die cuts using Copic markers and Distress Oxide inks.
At first, the woven box looks intimidating, but it's a very simple die set to use. I can't wait to give this box card to someone special next Easter! Get ready for our Blog Hop on December 12th to celebrate the new release! You could win a prize and see some wonderful card ideas from our awesome Design Team! I look forward to sharing more cards this week for Sneak Peek week! Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
