March 2019 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends!!!

Welcome to our February Karen Burniston Designer Challenge.

Check out Karen Burniston's blog on Wednesday (US Time) when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month, plus Karen will have an amazing video tutorial to share with us all.

Our challenge theme this month is .... "TINY ACCESSORIES" - take your cue from any of the outfits included in Tiny Accessories 1 or Tiny Accessories 2 for a card of any theme. Incorporate an animal or get creative with using the accessories on other items, like eggs, trees, flowers. Accessorise!

For the  challenge today, I decided to create a kids birthday card using the cute chick in the Spring Animals die set and have it dress up as all sorts of characters ... Super Chick, A Little Old Lady, King, Pirate and Sherlock Chick. To dress up my chicks, I used dies from both the Tiny Accessories 1 and Tiny Accessories 2 die set.

For the card itself, I used the Circle Tag Pop-up Die set and added the pop-up part of this card into a normal side folding card.

To create the grass and trees in each of the circles I used the Nature Edges and Outdoor Scene die sets.

Super Chick also needed a "S" on it, so I die cut an "S" from the "Sunshine" Sentiment from the Word Set 6 - Summer die set.

The sentiment on the top left hand corner of the card uses one of the dies from the Word Set 8 - Congrats die set.

For the king .... I added a couple of the dies from the Castle Pop-up die set, because a king must have a castle right! I scroll I figured could be some decree he has just come up with. I also added a royal cape to him using the same die I used to make Super Chick. I also added gemstones to the kings crown.

A pirate needs to find treasure, so I added some gold coins around him using the circles that came out of one of the border dies from the Border Blends - Party die set.

To finish off the inside of the card I added a stamped sentiment which is stamped onto an oval from the Crosshatch Ovals die set.

For the front of the card, I added the Happy Birthday Sentiment which was die cut from orange and blue cardstock and layered using the Crosshatch Ovals die set.

I also added two more chicks ... Super Chick and maybe Sherlock Chick or a Gentleman whichever you want it to be.
