Karen Burniston Riley/Darkroom Door Blog Hop!!

Good morning friends - it's time!!!



Today's post is part of a huge Blog Hop, and you should have arrived here from Teresa Abajo's blog. If you get lost during the hop, I have listed all the participants with linked websites at the end of my post. You will want to be sure and check them all out, as there will be a TON of inspiration and prizes too.

I have TWO fun Pop-Up cards to share today. I have included lots of photos, since many of the people who will be visiting from the hop may not be familiar with Karen Burniston's Pop-Up dies.

I loved SO many of the Darkroom Door stamps and stencils, honestly I had trouble choosing which ones stamps to use for the Blog Hop. It was practically an 'eeny miny mo' scenario. I will definitely be adding more of them to my collection.

The one stamp that jumped out at me first, was this Sitting Dog image - it reminded me so much of our old Brandi girl. The Circle Background image is one I knew I'd get a lot of use out of so I chose that one too.



To create the colourful background, I first embossed the background stamp on several panels with white embossing powder. Then I pulled out my Magical Shakers and did a little 'sprinkle and spritz'. I just love the fun backgrounds these water colour powders make. The bonus to use the Magical Shakers, is that you get a bit of shimmer as well. On this card, I like how the dog is peeking through the circular window.



I added the large Happy Birthday, and added glitter to the bottom part for sort of a 'dipped' look.



Inside is where all the fun is! I used the Katherine Label to Pop-Up so the dog spins up & pops out as the card is opened.



This Paint Drip stamp is SO cool, and I'm going to have fun with it in my Art Journal pages too. To get this multi coloured image I used the MISTI and I have to say it would have been nearly impossible without that stamping tool because the marker ink would dry too fast. I used markers and coloured & stamped one drip at a time and still ended up with perfect placement. 

I used the Alphabet Texture Stamp with watermark ink to create some additional interest to the card background. This is another stamp that will see lots of use in my Art Journal pages.



I used the Crosshatch Rectangles as an area to stamp the Stampin' Up greetings - this card is for our youngest Grandson's birthday.



You get so much dimension from the Katherine Label Pop-Up - and you can animate so many things!



Onto my second card for the hop:

The front of my card is very plain & subdued in a simple black and white colour theme. When I chose the crayon stamp, this card is what I had in mind.



When I added the words inside, I didn't check the placement through the front window. At first I was disappointed that you could see them but then decided that since the card front was SO plain I like that there is a little hint of something fun inside.

And inside, there is a LOT going on!!

I chose to use the Circle Charm Pop-Up in a vertical orientation instead of a horizontal, which allowed me to stamp the crayons across the top. Because the card base was cut from Bristol Smooth card stock, I was able to use my Zig Clean Colour makers. They blend beautifully on this card stock and I love the bright vibrant colours even when blended with a water brush.







I do realize that the word Colour is not spelled with our Canadian spelling, mostly because the letters were too crammed in if I added the 'U'.



Finally, here is a side view of the Pop-Up card.




Both Darkroom Door and Karen Burniston will be giving away a prize pack, with winners randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by Sunday June 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. NOTE - be sure that you have a valid email address attached to your comment!! The last Blog Hop we did, I ended up drawing FIVE different names before I found one with an email address I could contact. It's also a good idea to check back to see if your name was drawn.
