Karen Burniston - Whats's in a name - Designer Challenge June - Part 2

Howdy friends and I am back for the second of my posts for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge and again its all about the initials in our names.  Mine being CC.  This time I have used CLOUD and COW as my two words and make this rather pretty Brownie, now to be named Pinkie :)  I think she looks rather beautiful with those big eyelashes and a flower in her hair.

I coloured "Pinkies" spots with a watercolour pencil and used a fineline black pen to add
the dot detailing.

For the main card I used :

Brownie the Cow - Karen Burniston - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Lorna Label Pop Up -  Karen Burniston - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Leafy Branch -   Elizabeth Craft Designs
Bunch of Flowers 4 -   Elizabeth Craft Designs
Clouds from All Season Tree -  Karen Burniston - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Gingham Stamp - Lawn Fawn - Crafts U Love
The paper was from my stash, the stamp from my old Elzybells stamps

I do hope you have enjoyed the 2 cards and do not forget to check out the links

Karen Burnistons post will be coming soon and I will post a link to it when its up :)

Karen Burniston - What's in a name Designer June Challenge

Hello and welcome to the my first challenge card for this month and this months challenge was

 Everyone has to incorporate two Pop it Ups dies according to your first and last initials.  

Ahh, so for my that is "CC".   For C I could choose CHEEPERS the Chicken, or even Brownie the COW so it was a bit flexible.  We could use the entire line, so I could have chosen CHILLY the penguin or even Whiskers the CAT but having not had my new farm collection that long I really wanted to play with those.

So today's card was made for my son Caiden who is 9 today and I went to town on this 
TRIPLE Lucy Label Pop up.  I decorated with Brownie the COW and CHEEPERS the chicken. So that is my CC covered.  I also used Virgil the Pig, Susan Tierneys  Cockburn Fence and Elizabeth Craft Designs Ice Cream Cone.

Here is the Birthday boy and his card!

And here is the card.  I used 3 small 4 x 4 cards and cut the Lucy Label out of each
 of the cards.  I then covered with some 12" papers to bring the card together
as one piece.  I mostly cut the animals out of plain cardstock and picked up some
pink spotty card for Virgil.. Caiden asked if if he had caught chicken pox off Cheepers!

I will be back tomorrow with another farm based card and one where Brown is
anything but brown!

Move over Stamping Caz. It's Crafty Caiden

It's the time of year again.  Sweetie jars required  for summer fair.  Theme this year is circus and although  we don't  have wild animals in circus' in the UK.  When i think circus I think big top,lion tamers and elephant's.

Caiden coloured the  stamps, I helped cut them out.  I die cut  the barn  from Karen  Burniston Barn pop stand. And Caiden armed with mummy's special  pens coloured  the lines, very gently I  might add  as he was warned to be  careful.
He punched some stars and we glued it all in place.

Loved my Crafty time  with my little Woo tonight.

Prima Pencil and Stamping Mini Demo

I had a Prima pencils and Stamping Mini Demo today.  Unfortunately all good plans and all that my son broke his arm Friday late afternoon so it meant I didn't get much time in my shed to make lots of samples but I managed to make 3 cards and 2 images coloured which I will make into cards very soon I hope.

First up are a couple of cards I made using the MFT "Knead you" stamp set from Crafts U Love.

As well as the MFT stamps on the card above I used :
La La Land Zig Zags
Marianne Designs Film Strip

On this one I used the MFT stamps, Marianne arrow, Marianne # and photo frame too.

Next up I made this card using Woodware Stamp called "you make me happy"

And lastly a quick coloured image from Stampendous Called "Screwloose, nights sky".
I hope to make this into a card very soon.

All coloured with Prima Pencils

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Day 2 - Brownie Card

I am back with my official challenge card. the card I shared this morning was a card made "Just for fun" but this one fits the bill and includes the barn.

I've used the Chalkboard Greetings stamps on the front and gone to town on the inside with "Brownie" looking less brown in this card but a spotted black and white and the barn in pretty pastel shades.

The dandelions in the picture are real ones that I picked as they looked so sunny!

Simple front with some punched daisies.

Tomorrow Karen Burniston will post her post over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and I will come back and post the link tomorrow.

I've had a lovely day today... My birthday has been very special with friends and family and lots of birthday wishes.

Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Day 2

I'm back with another card.  This isn't my actual challenge  card but kids currently  hogging  pc with challenge  card so might need to post that card later today.

In the meantime I had a Virgil the Pig hanging about that needed making  into something  and I made this simple card. And it's flat too which makes a change  for my kb cards.

I used the pitchfork from the hey there set and the fantastic new stamps too.

I'll be back later with my proper challenge  card.  Have a great day.

Karen Burniston May Designer Challenge Day 1

Gosh, time does fly doesn't it and I didn't it was even realise it was due until I saw Frances fantastic card pop up on my newsfeed on Facebook.  Frances' Amazing Card HERE!

It's time for our May Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This time around the theme for our challenge is BARNS, BARNS, BARNS - Time to show off the new Collins dies with a designer challenge in their honor. The only requirement is that you use the new Barn Pop Stand die. You do not have to use it with the enclosed Pop Stand (if, for instance, you prefer using the barn on a card front or on one of the other PIU dies) and you do not have to style it as a barn.

Elizabeth Craft Designs release a small collection for a show called Collins and aren't we lucky!!  The dies are due in stock any time now and I am so excited to share this with you.  Slightly different this time as I didn't have full access to the collection so therefore I got one already cut and pieced animal to use, so maybe (most probably) my cards might have been different had I had full reign of the dies, but that's not to say I haven't fallen in love totally with Virgil the Pig, Cheepers the Chicken and Brownie the Cow.  I once I get the dies I will be able to create a whole herd of farm yard fun!

First up I have used Cheepers and the Pop Stand Barn die
to create this fun "Chicken Shack".
Long standing readers (if there are any) will recognise the Chicken Shack
from what used to be my small On-line Craft Store.  Aww those were the days!

I have also used the NEW Branches with leaves peel off - Elizabeth Craft Designs
A very old rubber stamp of a piece of chicken wire was used too (Inky Antics)

The front of the card uses the NEW Karen Burniston Farm Greetings Stamp set.
And again a blast from my Chicken Shack Crafts Days my designed stamp of chicken feet were perfect!

I will be back with another card for the challenge, maybe later or tomorrow if I can manage to make a third card I will post the second later today :)

All dies should be hitting stores very soon and Crafts U Love in the UK should have
those in stock as well.

DON'T FORGET, CHECK THE LINKS TO THE LEFT for all the other amazing samples
by the team :)

Bunting in a minute

You all know I love a gadget and I love bunting too so when I saw the New We R Memory Keepers Banner Board it was a match made in heaven.

It takes just a little  bit if pre cutting  you card to rectangles or squares and then a few slices in the board and your done. It really is simple. 

They are in stock at Crafts  U Love.

Card round up

I admit to sharing all my cards and creations on Facebook and forgetting my blog so I have a couple to share in this post today.

First up is last weeks Create and Take at Crafts U Love
I used the Stampendous Angel Fish stamp for this one.
I can't tell you how much I struggled with this card.  I made a variation that just
did not work and nearly drove myself nuts getting it right.  I am pleased to say
in the end it turned out ok and the ladies at Create and Take brought all
the stamps and embossing folders so I guess it was a thumbs up from them too.

This card is my Pop it Ups Wednesday over at Elizabeth Craft Designs.
You can check out my info HERE and the blog HERE

This one was a card I made for one of Harvey's friends.
Boys cards are always tricky and now they are getting older it is
getting even harder.  I used the Dienamics Headphones for this one.

And lastly this was the week before's Create and take and this one
was made using Taylored Expressions Stamps, Die and Embossing Folder too.

All items from Crafts U Love

I will try and post more to here. And I hope you have liked these cards.

I'm off to the shed to play with the NEW We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch boards.
You know how much I like to use the boards and how much I like bunting too.  Match made in heaven.  I will post my results later.
