Karen Burniston & Darkroom Door Blog Hop Card


Hi everyone! I'm really happy to be taking part in a Blog Hop today, where I as well as the rest of Karen Burniston's Design Team are joining forces with the lovely people at Darkroom Door, to bring you a wide range of projects made with products from both companies. 
I adore Karen's clever and original die designs, and teamed with the fabulous stamps you can find at Darkroom Door, there's a lot of crafting fun to be had!

For my card I used Karen's House & Fence Pop-up die set to create the pop-up mechanisms, along with Darkroom Door's Carved Caravans stamp set.
I love all the stamps which come in this set, and the base of the House & Fence Pop-up die set is perfect for attaching elements to.


So! For the blog hop, both Darkroom Door and Karen Burniston will be giving away prize packs, with winners randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by Sunday, July 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!

Here are all the Blog Hop participants:


 I hope you enjoy the inspiration!

Now for a few more details about the card...

I used the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform along with Distress Markers to colour in the different parts of each stamp. The stamp platform was vital, as I needed to add a few layers of Distress Marker for the colour to build up enough. I hand cut out the stamped elements and used a combination of glue in a Fineline bottle, and mini adhesive foam pads to adhere them to the pop-up parts of the card base.

I used the cloud edge from the Nature Edges die set, for the sky background, and a 'hello' die from the Word Set 6 - Summer set.


 The card front is just kept really simple, with space for a message, more stamps from the Caravan set, and circles from the Circles - Crosshatch die set.
