Pop-It Up Dies by Karen Burniston

I finally got to play with Karen Burniston's new Pop-It Up dies.  These samples were made for my local store, Whim So Doodle, located in St. Petersburg, FL.  My work, and photography (LOL!), really don't do these dies justice!  The packages come pretty much get the main die and accompanying accessory dies in various sizes.  All you'll need is paper, stamps and glue to complete some AWESOME cards! And we all have plenty of those three things, right??!!

To see some awe-inspiring work go to Karen's blog or visit her Facebook page, Karen Burniston, Designer.  She has a crack team of designers that produce jaw-dropping work!  Trust me!

Here are my samples...

These first two cards use the Circle Accordion Album die. The second card below also includes the Circle Frame Edge dies.

This next album was constructed with the Oval Accordion Frame die and the Oval Dot Frame Edge dies.  This demonstrates how you can string together as many frames as you like to create an album or use just two frames to make a card (as I did above).  I used Core-dinations paper for the background and Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper for the dot frame edges.  The images were colored with distress markers and a water brush.  You can barely see the dimension but I cut out the stamped elements with my Sizzix Eclips machine using the Stamp2Cut feature and popped them up with foam tape.

If you're in the St. Petersburg area stop by Whim So Doodle to see these samples "up close and personal"!  And while you're there you can pick up some of these dies.  You'll love them!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. All the cards are beautiful, especially the one with the lacy edging. I love Karen's original accordion die which I use a lot but these new ones are now tempting me too.... Anne xx

  2. All three are beautiful...and moreso in person!

  3. Beautiful cards! I especially love the Easter card...totally gorgeous!!!

  4. All three of your cards are lovely, especially the Easter card. I like that it isn't in the usual pastel colors.
