My #2nd card for this months Karen Burniston Designer challenge Glitter!


I'm back with card number 2 for this months Karen Burniston Designer challenge.  Glitter is our theme this month.....
I used the Coffee Pop stand die set again as I Love it so much :)

Here is the Front of my card using All New items for the Elizabeth Craft Designs CHA release!

 For the Coffee Cup I used the Paisley stage it Stencil by Karen and placed it onto a piece of pink card stock which had ECD double sided adhesive on it.  I glittered the open spaces in red SMG and then removed the stencil and rubbed in some cool diamond Silk Microfine Glitter  before cutting my cup out of this piece.
I have used several New Karen Burniston dies, stamps and stencils and the coffee bean embossing folder. I also used a New die by Els the stitched oval for the sentiment. The coffee foam was created using a die by Joset from her Cupcake set and the tiny hearts are from Karen's Poppy the Owl!

Here is the Inside of my card:

And a Close up:

For this cup I tried a technique that I saw Karen do, by taking a piece of card stock that has double sided adhesive on it, laying down several of the die cut beans, then grouting it with Chocolate Silk Microfine Glitter!  You see on the front of the card I used the negative space from cutting the beans to add a glittery bean strip!
The sentiment inside is computer generated and cut out using another stitched oval die by Els!

Tomorrow at Karen you will get to see what the other designers have created and Karen always has an Awesome card and Video to share too!

Hope you have enjoyed this card.....Thank You for stopping!

Card #1 for this months Karen burniston Designer challenge Glitter.....


I'm a big fan of Glitter so this months Karen Burniston Designer challenge is right up my alley :)
I decided to use Jinks  the Monkey and The Coffee Cup Pop stand for this fun card.....

Here is the Front:

I kept it pretty simple with just a Little Glitter......

And the Inside:

Jinks and Friend are covered in Sparkly Fluff holding hearts covered in Silk Microfine Glitter. I re aranged the Tails and used the back of one so the two would join and create a heart.  I added some Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to some Transparent Embossing Paste before placing the New Karen Burniston Flower Stencil over the cup! I also used Poppy's heart to place a tiny glittered heart on the monkey's chest :)
All dies and sentiments are Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Here is a Close up of the two monkeys and the cup....

Wednesday over at Karen Burniston's blog you will see all the fun cards by the Design Team and a card and video by Karen you won't want to miss!

I'll be back tomorrow with another card for this challenge also using the Cup Pop Stand die set with lots of sparkle!
