Karen Burniston / Darkroom Door Blog Hop



Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to my blog. Today the Karen Burniston Design Team is collaborating with Darkroom Door, they have lots of fun stamps and stencils which work well with Karen's die sets. Today the Karen Burniston & Darkroom Door Design Teams have come together to hold a blog hop showcasing products from both companies.


The hop started on the Darkroom Door 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 don't want to miss anything and there is lots to see!

Both Darkroom Door and Karen Burniston will be giving away prize packs, with winners randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by Sunday, July 29th, 2018. Lots of chances to win some goodies, so just leave a comment on this post or any other blog hop post to enter!
I have two cards to share with you today.


For my first card, I used Darkroom Door's Coffee Stamp set to create my card. As you can see I  have created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop-up die set.

For the base of the card  used patterned paper and then stamped the coffee stain and coffee beans randomly over the cardstock and sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.

I stamped the coffee cup and saucer three times onto patterned papers and cut them out. Cutting one complete with the cup and saucer and the other two just the cups. I also stamped three more of the cups using cardstock which I adhered the patterned paper cups to for strength. I cut a slit into the cups that the other cup is going to be placed into and adhered them to them. 

The cups were then adhered to the cupcake portion of the pop-up die cut base.


For the sentiment on the base of the card I used the label dies from the Katherine Label Pop-up die set and added the "Spill the Beans!" sentiment from the Coffee Stamp set which was stamped on the fishtail flag from the Word Set 5 - Royalty die set. The coffee beans are from the Coffee Cup Pop-up die set.

The Hello sentiment die cut is from the Word Set 6 - Summer die set.


For the front of the card I created the background as I did the inside of the card.

I added a sentiment also from the Coffee Stamp set from Darkroom Door, stamping this to the large label from the Gift Card Label die set.


For my second card today, I have created a Teacher Thank You can to use for my grand children's teachers at the end of the year. The Crayon stamp from Darkroom Door is perfect for this.


To create my card I used Karen Burniston's Circle Charm Pop-Up die set. To create the circle frame around the opening of my card I used the Crosshatch Circles die set, I love this fun die set.

The "Thank you" sentiment comes from the Word Set 1 - Greetings die set.


 The "# 1" comes from the Numbers die set and the "Teacher" sentiment is a combo of varies sentiments from Word Set 2 - Birthday; Word Set 3 - Holiday & Word Set 6 - Summer.


Here is one last photo of my card taken from overhead so you can see the pop-up portion of this card a little better.

Well that is about it from me today, thank you for dropping by. The next stop on the hop is Godelieve Tijskens.
