Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the KB Riley - Karen Burniston Dies and Dare 2B Artzy Collaboration Blog Hop! Our Design Team members are excited to share their inspiring creations using some of the fabulous products from both these companies.
To celebrate our blog hop we have four great prizes to give away. You will have at the chance to win one of two $25 Gift Certificates to use on the KB Riley - Karen Burniston Dies website, or one of two $25 Gift Certificates to use on the Dare 2B Artzy website. Amazing, right?
I did a rather long YouTube video for those of you who both like to see pop up cards in action while hearing the details, as well as those who prefer a video tutorial on how I created the extra wide Gift Pivot Panel. You can find the video HERE.
This is a larger than A2 card ... it's a card & envelope set from Michaels and it measures 5 x 6.5". I was so pleased with how well Karen Burniston's A2 sized Pattern Plate Tiles work on this size of card, leaving a nice even border all the way around.
I love the shine you get from acetate and use it frequently on my cards. After inking and stamping the centre circle, I added acetate over it before adhering it under the Crosshatch frame. Note, the frame was created by nesting two Crosshatch circles together and running it through my die cutting machine.
Inside, I used the Gift Pivot Panel and the adorable Alpaca Cake stamp and coordinating die set from Dare 2B Artzy. My teammate Kelly Booth chose the other Alpaca stamp set to use for her Blog Hop card and I'd like to point out that the die set works for BOTH stamp sets!!
Look how cute this Alpaca is! There are snippets of the Pattern Plate on the Gift Pivot Panel which helps disguise the extra fold. I have more information on how I did it at the end of my post.
A fun sentiment, stamped on another ink blended panel. I used one of the 'dangly bits' that will soon be available at karenburniston.com and hung the lips from the Love Charms on it.
The Cactus in my stamp set has this zig zag design, which makes it fun to colour.
The rainbow borders on either side of my card were created with Washi Tape wrapped around a strip of card stock. Adhering the ends under the strip then adding it to your card ensures that the washi tape doesn't lift off.
I took the photo below before I started to decorate the wider Gift Pivot Panel so you could see the double width a little clearer.
To create a wider panel with more real estate for decorating, cut a piece of card stock 5 x 8.5" and score it down the centre at 2.5". I would suggest using scrap card stock first, as the width will depend on what your goal is for the card and how much depth you want.
You fold your strip in half and run it through your machine with only one long cutting edge of the die touching the folded piece. In the photo below you can see that the curvy parts (for the bows on the gift) do not cut the folded edge. The fold is on the right.
Now remember this is an adaptation of an existing die, so uneven bits are to be expected. Simply trip as desired. If you want more information, please check out my YouTube video.
Make sure you join the hop and comment on everyone's blog post for your chance to win one of these prizes. Winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on ALL THE POSTS received by Friday 26th June 2020
