Karen Burniston September Designer Challenge Card 1


Hi everyone,

It's time for our September Karen Burniston Designer Challenge, this time round the theme Karen has given us is Spooky September! - let's get people in the mood for some Halloween crafting using Pop it Ups. Any style of project.

For my card today I have created a Double Circle Spiral Pull Card using the Circle Spiral Pull Card Die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

To create the Double Circle Pull Card I cut my black card to 5 1/4 inches x 11 inches and then scored at 4 inches at both ends. Placed my die on the first score line and die cut it and then I did the same on the second score line. I cut another piece of black card which I placed in the middle section to hid the holes from the closures.


To decorate my card, I used Tim Holtz’ Shatter Layering Stencil and white ink on the black card and on all the white pieces I die the same but with black ink, sponging very softly so the ink wasn’t too black.

Here you can see my card partly opened. I used Paper Pretties Witch Sophia which comes with the cute witch stamp and all the fun sentiments used on this card.

On the inside right hand circle I added the clock from Karen Burniston’s Clock and Gears Die set to which I added the Witching Hour sentiment … partly with stamps and some hand written.


When you open the card fully you can see the clear acetate spiral piece which is attached to the inside left circle on this spiral I have added eyes from the Poppy The Owl Character Die set.

On the top left hand corner I have die cut a circle using yellow card, the circle is from the Circle Accordion Card die set. I used the moustache from the Props 1 Die set to create my bats.

If you are looking to purchase Karen's Pop It Ups dies in Australia you can find them at Photo Continental.

Don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog on Wednesday when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month. I will also be back  tomorrow with another card to share with you for this challenge.
