Karen Burniston/Brutus Monroe Collaboration Blog Hop



Hi Crafty Friends,

This week the Karen Burniston Design Team is collaborating with Brutus Monroe, they have lots of fun products which work well with Karen's die sets. Today the Karen Burniston Design Team is holding a blog hop showcasing products from both companies.

The hop started on the Karen Burniston blog, so if  you just happened to hop onto my blog you may want to head over there now so you can start at the beginning of the hop. You do want to miss anything and there is lots to see!

Karen Burniston and each of the Karen Burniston Design Team members will be offering a prize to some lucky person who comments on our blog posts, so make sure you join the hop and comment on everyone's blog post. The prize for my blog will be the Upsy Daisy Pop-up die set. You have until midnight EST 24th May to leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win the prize. (Note because this die won't be released until the first week of June, your prize will not be posted until then).

For my card today I have used Karen Burniston's new Upsy Daisy Pop-up die set to create the pop-up element of the card. This is one of the 12 new die sets which will be released in June. The two end squares are attached to the pop-up mechanism and the middle square is joined to the others using twine. 

 Along the bottom edge of the card I added the waves from the Tropical Scenes die set die cutting the waves from white cardstock that had adhesive tape on the front. I carefully trimmed off the release paper from the adhesive along the top wave part of the die cut above the stitching line. I then covered the adhesive with clear glitter and then I removed the remaining protective backing and covered with blue glitter.

I then stamped and cut out the boy and girl in the sailboat from Brutus Monroe's True Love Sailing Clear Stamp set and adhered to the lower right hand side of the card on the waves.



Here is a quick video to see my card in action.


Along the top edge of my card I added clouds using the scallop cloud border from the Nature Edges die set. 

I stamped the sentiment which is included in the stamp set to black cardstock using white embossing powder and added it to the top left hand corner of my card.

To decorate my square panels that pop-up I added words from the new Words 6 - Summer die set. 


Here is an overhead photo of my card so you can see the pop-up portion of the card a little better.


I kept the front of my card simple seeing the focus is on the inside of the card. I stencilled a background on the card base.

I used Karen Burniston's Happy Birthday die which I die cut and then covered in the same blue glitter I used on the inside of the card. To layer the sentiments I used Karen Burniston's new Rectangles die set, these dies have a fun design on every second die in the set.

Well that is about it from me today, thank you for dropping by. To continue on the blog hop, click on the next person on the list which is Helen Cryer.

Here is the complete blog hop list if you need it.

For your convenience I have also included the links to Karen's new products being released in June which are now available for pre order.
