Having some fun with Pop Ups ...

Hello friends!
Today I have a few cards to share that I created recently for
family birthdays and also for upcoming Fall craft shows.

First for the birthdays!
I've used two of Karen Burniston's dies ...



Karen Burniston - Dies - Explosion Pop-Up

and the second birthday card ...



Karen Burniston - Dies - Palm Tree Pop-Up

I also created a birthday card for the neighbor girl who just turned 17 using yet another Karen Burniston die but totally forgot to snap a photo of it ... so, I decided to make a couple more that are similar (minus the Starbucks Gift Card lol) to share with you today.

Karen Burniston - Dies - Coffee Cup Pop-Up

These were all great fun and I hope to have time to make several more for my upcoming Fall shows.  I think they would be very well received since they are so unique.

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by! 


  1. WOW!!!! Amazing Birthday cards!! All very striking!!
    I always LOVE all the Karen Burniston dies, especially those for pop-ups!!
    Very inspiring, thank you!!

  2. Well now I have to say I like all your cards but that first one is spectacular! I was so surprised at the way it folded out to all its glory. It really makes me want one of the dies so I can make my own! Well done!

  3. These are all absolutely adorable. [Bunny]`

  4. Wow you have been busy,gorgeous creative cards.xxx

  5. Holy cow, these are some serious pop up cards! I'm totally blown away, Darlene. Especially the palm trees -- OMG! These are ALL amazing! A few days ago a friend and I went to see a display of pop up cards at the local art museum. ART MUSEUM! They weren't done with dies and they were nowhere NEAR as awesome as these. I mean, not even close, but they were at the ART MUSEUM. Trust me, your shoppers and anyone who receives a card like this will be gobsmacked!

  6. You are really walking on the wild side. I don't have two of these dies. I need them.... right. Great cards.

  7. These aepre wonderful. Great pop up designs.

  8. Oh wow are those ever fun designs when they are opened up, these always go over well, something new and different!

  9. Wait. I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone here. Definitely out of my league for sure - wow, just wow! How in the world do you manage to run blogs, be on design teams, do fall shows and make all this groovy stuff that gives me a headache to even try to think how would I make that? You are wonder woman, that's gotta be it. These cards are nothing short of amazing! xoxo

  10. Hello Darlene:i I came to thank you for your sweet commemts on my cards and also to admire these over the top amazing pop up cards!! I can't pick a favorite, they're all fun and fabulous!!
