December Karen Burniston Designer Challenge ( Trees)

Its time for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge and this month we are playing with Trees!
Karen has many sets that include a tree and I chose to use the Christmas Tree Pop Up!  I thought it was perfect to use with some colored Purple Onion Designs/ Stacey Yacula Cuties!

Here is the front of my card:

#C4C413 Crazy 4 Challenges Card Christmas or Winter!


This is the last week for my guest spot for the Crazy 4 Challenges Group....It has been Fun!
This the challenge is to make a Christmas or Winter Card.....so I have both for you today!
I was Inspired by Laura Bassen and her Rainbow like Christmas card using the MFT Drifts and Hills Stencil.  I thought this background would be perfect for an ornament made using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Large Snowflake from the Ornate Snowflakes set.

After several snowflakes cut from white card stock the top one was cut from the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Distress Card Stock. I then adhered several gems by Lucy's Little Things onto my Snowflake. The bakers Twine was threaded tied in a bow and tucked behind the background which was created using Distress Oxides the MFT Stencil and a little paint splatter :)
I used removable tape to hold the twine on the background and then the recipient can just lightly tug and remove the ornament.

Here is another View.....

Then I made a Winter Card using the Same die set by Elizabeth Craft Designs and a Distress Oxide Background without the paint splatter....

I added a few gems and sequins by Lucy's Little Things 
A smaller snowflake to the center to finish of my card using the negative space.

Here are the two together!

All Supplies I used are linked below.....
Thank You for stopping and head over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog and see what the others have done this week!!

Happy Thanksgiving.....just wanted to pop in and tell you all I'm so Thankful for You! I have had a lot of support this past year from all my family and friends and I think this is a perfect day to reflect on this and give Thanks!

I made a card using one of my favorite Purple Onion Designs Fall stamps....Ginger!
I know that Raccoons generally have black masks...burt not this one :) I wanted to see her sweet eyes so her mask is white. In Kelly's world animals can bee all sorts of colors....

I love everything about this tag book!

Please email me your address at kellykellster123@yahoo.com and I'll get it out to you!!!

I was excited a few weeks ago when I was in Mesa at the Stamp Convention and saw this ADORABLE Rubbernecker Skater Boy!! I knew Noah was going to love him on his Birthday card this year. (He was probably getting tired of having the same skater on his cards as I only owned one before this :)
Anyhow here is the front of the Tag Book Pop Up  using the dies by Karen Burniston I made for him for his 7th Birthday!

And the card opened up:

Another View

And a few close ups.....

The other exciting thing is my little brother bought me a Brother Scan N Cut 2 and I was able to cut this cute skateboarder out on my machine :) as there is no die for this stamp.
My hands have been really bothering me lately so saving them from having to use scissors is a huge deal.....
I'm just hoping I will always be able to color.

Supplies I used are linked below, Thank You for stopping by today!
Hope you have a Wonderful Day!
