October 2021 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge


Welcome to our October 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 ...  "HAUNTED!" - make a Halloween card.>For my card today I created my Halloween card using the Bitty Ball Pop-up and Character Add-ons 1 die sets to create a vampire. 

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

To create the Vampire on the right side of the card, I used the Bitty Ball Pop-up and Character Add-Ons 1 die sets. I used the hands from the Halloween Elements die set to add hands to my vampire.

My finished card is 5 inches by 7 inches adding the flap die from the Flap and Closure die set to the far right of my card.

To decorate the left side of the inside of my card I used Halloween Scene; Halloween Elements and Halloween Charms die sets.

Here is a close up photo of my Vampire. I used cardstock from the Exact Pack 5 Character Add-ons 1 card pack which includes the colors you need to create either the vampire or pumpkin. I did used grey cardstock instead of the flesh included in the pack to all the flesh portions of the vampire.

The vampire is attached to the card using a brad, so it can swivel around. Here is a view of the vampire facing to the left.

A view of the vampire from the back.

And a few of the vampire when it is facing the right.

For the front of the card I added a plain panel of orange cardstock. Along the bottom edge of the card I added a green piece of cardstock that had been die cut using one of the dies included in the Long Nature Edges die set.

For the moon I used a circle from the Crosshatch Circles die set, sponging grey ink around the edge of the circle.

I die cut two fences using the Iron Fence Pop-up die set, trimming off both edges and joining together.

The bat is from the Halloween Scene die set and finally the Halloween Sentiment using the Happy Halloween die set.
