Pop it Ups Karen Burniston Designer Challenge – Barns! Barns! Barns!

May 13, 2015

Hi, it’s Karen Burniston with the May Pop it Ups Designer Challenge. Each month I challenge my Designer Challenge team to use Pop it Ups dies for a specific theme. This month the theme is Barns! Barns! Barns! using the brand new Barn Pop Stand die. The designers were free to repurpose the barn and you’ll find some very clever Farm and other theme cards in the links below.

Here is a look at the new Farm collection. The Clear Stamps have arrived and are shipping now and the dies are expected to arrive and ship in the next day or two.

FarmCollection

For my card and video I’m teaching how to add a Floating Floor to the Barn Pop Stand to be able to animate items all over the floor, for dynamic pop-up scenes.

BarnFloatingFloor

Here is the video tutorial:

When the barn doors slide open you can see the haystack and egg inside the barn.

BarnFFTopView

For the front of the card I did selective inking to mix phrases from the Cow chalkboard stamp and the Chicken chalkboard stamp (both part of the Farm Greetings set) and then cut out my custom greeting with the Fancy Label dies. Brownie the Cow holds the greeting.

BarnFFFront

The easiest way to understand how a Floating Floor works is to watch the video, but here’s a side view to help explain things. Basically an L support is placed anywhere along the floor where you’d like an item to pop up. For my card I’ve used an L support to animate the Cow behind the barn and the Chicken in front of the barn. I also took advantage of the front and back supports of the floating floor to add fences, grass and Virgil the Pig.

Here is a printable reference sheet for making the folds and the die cuts for the Floating Floor.

Let’s see all the clever creations of the Designer Challenge Team. For all these cards you can click on the designer’s name to go to their blog post showing more photos, supply lists, general instructions, etc. for their cards.

Caz Counsell went with a Farm theme for this card, but instead of using the Barn traditionally, she repurposed it into a henhouse! What a great idea. She also used Cheepers the Chicken and the little hay piece from Hay There.

CazHenHouse2

Helen Cryer shows off the entire Farm Collection (minus Virgil the Pig) on this fabulous 4-page Rectangle Accordion. Helen has such a way with combining patterned papers and this project is a perfect example of that.

Frances Byrne ran away from the farm and joined the circus! Check out her extremely clever and fun use of the Barn die as a Circus Tent. Amazing!

FrancesCircusTent

Donna Wright also chose to cleverly repurpose the Barn . . . into a baby’s crib! How fabulous! She shows step-out photos on her blog post. I just love how the runner strips were used as legs and the overlay doors as the sides.

DonnaBabyCrib

Kelly Booth also made a different item with the barn – a dog house! She combined the two Pop Stand dies – the Barn (styled as a dog house) and the small pop stand that comes with the Hay There set to animate the stamped pooch inside the house.

KellyDogHouseKaren Aicken brings us back to the farm with this beautiful card using the Barn as a traditional barn. The front of the card features Cheepers the Chicken and a portion of the Farm Greetings Clear Stamps where she also used the egg die that comes with Cheepers to highlight the greeting. Inside there’s a traditional barn with a surprise inside (click her name to see the doors open)

Raquel Mason knows how to party! Check out this vibrant fun birthday Barn card using Virgil the Pig and the Props 2 set. There’s a second Virgil hanging out on the back side of the barn, so click Raquel’s name to go check it out on her blog.

RaquelBarnParty

Fran Sabad keeps the Barn Party rolling with this great “Party ’til the Cows come home!” card. She used Brownie the Cow and the Props 2 die set, plus the Barn, Hay There and the balloons from the Spiral Circle Pull Card. What a fun party indeed!

FranCowParty

Shelly Hickox made a soft and pretty barn for this sweet Virgil the Pig birthday card. She also used the stitched label from the Hay There set for the stamped greetings (Farm Greetings Clear Stamps) Gorgeous!

ShellyHogsKisses

Frances Byrne made this next card where she converted the Barn into an old fashioned school house. How clever! She embossed bricks on the front, added windows from the House Pivot Card and used the Lots of Pops to make a traditional 90 degree pop-up instead of the 180 degree Pop Stand version.

FrancesSchoolHouse

Now technically this next card doesn’t include a barn, but it’s too cute not to share. Caz Counsell added the bunch of hay from the Hay There set to give Virgil the Pig a cool hairdo. She used the Farm Greetings Clear stamps and notice the clever use of a button as an apple.

CazPigFlatKaren Aicken made this lovely pink barn scene for a fresh Spring card. I just love the colors! Virgil the Pig is hanging out behind the very pretty barn.

KarenBarnPink

Raquel Mason shows another super clever Barn adaptation – a tent! This is pitch perfect! She used the All Seasons Tree and the stars/happy from the Happy Birthday set. I also love the use of the bow from Props2 as tent ties. Brilliant!

RaquelBarnTent

Fran Sabad shows a great idea for a Virgil the Pig birthday card using the Barn. I love the addition of banners to the front of the barn and she chose to leave the doors open for this card so Virgil appears to be walking out to greet you.

FranVirgilBarn

Kelly Booth thought the Barn would make an excellent bird house and she was right! She embellished her stamped birds with glasses and the party hat from Props1 and Props2. The Lucy Label was used for the pop-up.

KellyBirdhouseBarn

Caz Counsell made another great scene with this card, where the Barn is placed flat against the back wall of a card and the spinner from the Rectangle Pull Card is used to animate Brownie the Cow. She used the Farm Greetings stamps on the card’s front.

CazSpinnerCow

Summer Hills-Painter created a wonderful Christmas card. She used the strand of lights and wreath from the Holiday House die to decorate the barn and a pair of Cheepers’ feet are used as antlers for Brownie. Smart!

SummerChristmas

Shelly Hickox created this wonderful 3D birdhouse using the Barn. I love the beautiful rustic feel of this project!

ShellyBirdhouse

France Byrne also made a Rectangle Pull Card for the challenge where she styled the Barn to look like corrugated metal. What a great look! Brownie is attached to the spinner for movement as the card opens/closes.

FrancesBarnRPC

Well I hope you feel very inspired to use the new Barn Pop Stand and the rest of the Farm Collection in all sorts of ways. Join us next month on June 17, 2015 for a really fun challenge called “What’s in a Name?” where each designer will be choosing their dies based on their own initials. I foresee some fun combinations!

Happy Crafting!

Karen’s video of using a stage and so many of the Farm Collection dies and stamps just inspires me to want to use them in so many ways. I love the idea of the platform in the card and the sliding doors on the barn – but that is just one part that is so fantastic.

    Really amazing collection! All the creations of the team are so pretty!The opportunity to win is nice but my only problem-no big shot or any cutting machine…When I began making cards, I bought hundreds of punches. What to do with them???
    Love the collection and Elizabeth Craft Design blog is the first I open every morning! And every day so many beautiful collections like this one. Thank you!

    These cards are so absolutely wonderful. I feel like a kid at Christmas waiting for the Barn Dies to be released and make my own cards.
    Oh dear Santa Moos, please deliver the dies to my local craft store as soon as possible. Thank you. 🙂

    How now Brown Cow! What fabulous barns and altered barns! LOVE the Circus tent and the festive Birthday barn is quite magical! I have to admit that I love Virgil the pig the most but the rest of the barn animals are equally adorable!
    I love seeing the Designer Challenges because it is always so fun to see what they have come up with! My eyes have been opened to new ways to use all of your fabulous dies.
    Can’t wait to see the next one! 🙂

    • Reply barb macaskill May 13, 2015 at 1:08 pm

      I can just see lots of hens, piggies and cows running around in a corral outside the barn that is filled with lots of hay and hen’s nest full of eggs. I would add some of them to my fairy village that has been needing a barn and pets.
      My grandchildren would have so much fun creating scenes to play with and cards for their mom, dad and friends!! They love to get creative with me and these dies are perfect for that!
      I can also so a set of jewelry with Cheep, Virgil and Brownie being shrunk down so that my granddaughter can have a farm necklace, bracelet and earrings!!
      Can’t wait to get my hands on all of these fabulous stamps and dies! Thanks for creating them and the inspiration to use them!!

          Hey love the look of all of your designs. The stamp art store that I shop at in my city just recently had a tutorial of these new dies to promote them. The owner just came back from a conference that perhaps you might have been at. Her name is Nancy Klieber. Definitely love the product. Would be super fun to win them.They would be fun to make fot sure.
