Karen Burniston October Designer Challenge - Clear Creations

Hello, Karen Burniston here with this month's Designer Challenge. Each month I challenge my designer friends to use my dies in a specific way. In September the challenge was to make Holiday Projects. You can see that challenge by clicking here: Karen Burniston September Designer Challenge - Holiday Projects.

Sizzix Die Cutting Tutorial | Clear Creations by Karen Burniston

This month I challenged eleven designers to create something using Karen Burniston pop-up dies incorporating a clear material to make portions of the design "float" or defy gravity. Links to their amazing creations are coming up, but first here is a video tutorial for how to create the Multi-Tier plus Spiral technique shown in my Halloween card above.

Generic Supplies: Washi Tape, plastic spider, Spider & Web stamps, Vellum, stapler

Sizzix_More_Inspiration

Time to check out the wonderful creations by the eleven designers who participated in this month's Designer Challenge, plus another idea from me. FIFTEEN great ideas are coming - grab your mouse and a refreshing beverage and let's dive in!

Gretchen Schmidt is first, with this clever clear creation using the Label Window Insert. When the card is closed the googly eyes line up with the back of the black label, looking like a little monster. Then, when the card is opened, the googly eyes float in the air as though the monster disappeared! Check out all the photos on her blog here: Gretchen's Disappearing Monster Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Gretchen used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the Label Window Pop 'n Cuts Insert and the Bigz Edge & Scroll die for her card.

Next up, Caz Counsell impresses with this bright fun buzzy bee Hello card using the new Sassy Label insert, cut from clear to allow her to animate the bee hive and her cute flowers. Strips of transparency extend upwards to the flying bees. I especially love how Caz incorporated the new Label Trellis Sizzlits Border Strip die in a two-tone color scheme by cutting it from both green and pink and layering the pink pieces into the green border. Check it out on her blog here: Caz's Buzzin' By Hello Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Caz used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the Sassy Label Pop 'n Cuts Insert, the Hello Sizzlits Set and the Label Trellis Sizzlits Strip die for her card.

Fran Sabad created a lovely winter scene using a clear material for the new Multi-Tier Insert and then filling all the tiers with stamped images. She also stamped snowflakes all over the acetate and highlighted some with rhinestones - a fabulous detail! Check out all the photos on Fran's blog here: Fran's Clear Winter Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Fran used the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Pop 'n Cuts Base with the Multi-Tier Insert for her card.

This card by Anna-Karin Evaldsson is magical. She is the master of incorporating photography into her designs, in this case, a cute photo of her son so that he appears to be walking up the "step" of the pop-up. She also oriented the new Multi-Tier insert in the opposite direction, giving her long platforms extending further into the card. Check out all the details and the techniques here: Anna-Karin's "What does the Fox say?" Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Anna-Karin used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the Multi-Tier Insert for this card.

Another super cute creation from Caz Counsell uses the new Sassy Label, cut from clear, to animate a stamped snowman. This type of clear card works with any of the generic Pop 'n Cuts inserts, since the pop-up itself is being used just for its mechanism. See this card on Caz's blog here: Caz's Snowman Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Caz used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the Sassy Label Pop 'n Cuts Insert, the Banner & Borders Thinlits and the Label Trellis Sizzlits Strip die for her card.

Several of the designers chose to make clear Accordion Album projects, like this fun Halloween card by Shelly Hickox. I love her use of the corner areas for the web and glittery cat. By using the new Stitched Framelits set that coordinates with the Accordion Album she was able to cut perfect frames to highlight her silhouetted details. See more photos on her blog here: Shelly's Trick or Treat Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Shelly used the Bigz Accordion Album, Bigz Frame & Label, Bracket and Label & Stitched Frames Framelits for this card.

Helen Cryer always excites with her creations. This holiday card combines the Label Window Pop 'n Cuts insert with the Wavy Labels Framelits to create a framed clear panel for suspending the stars. I particularly love the way Helen trimmed the inner card to fit behind the gold flourish just perfectly. Check out all the fun details on Helen's blog here: Helen's Label Window Christmas Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Helen used the Square Pop 'n Cuts Base w/Decorative Edge along with the Label Window Pop 'n Cuts Insert, the Bigz Edge & Scroll and the Wavy Labels Framelits for her card.

I must say that when I saw this next card on Donna Wright's blog I was in awe. She thought of every angle when she constructed this scene as an homage to her daughter's favorite kite, named Bob. The lampposts line up in the closed position and she was very clever in how she combined the pop-up Label ("Happy") with a flat label ("Birthday") inside the card. Definitely check it out on her blog here: Donna's Bob the Kite Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Donna used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the original Label Pop 'n Cuts Insert, the *NEW* Label Framelits Set, the Flagpole w/Lantern & Sign Sizzlits Strip, Banner & Borders Thinlits and the Label & Stitched Frames Framelits for her card.

Frances Byrne has styled amazing Poinsettias by layering the larger Poinsettia from a Pop 'n Cuts insert with the smaller Poinsettias on the Noel Sizzlits set. She used her amazing flowers on this Accordion Album with clear inner panels. Check out her pretty creation on her blog here: Frances Byrne's Clear Noel Album

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Frances used the Bigz Accordion AlbumBigz Frame & Label, Bracket, Poinsettia Pop 'n Cuts Insert (flowers only), Noel Sizzlits Set and Label & Stitched Frames Framelits for this card.

It is my sincere pleasure to welcome Karen Aicken to the Designer Challenge. Karen posts Pop 'n Cuts cards all the time on her blog and I was thrilled when she agreed to participate in the challenge. When I saw her creation I nearly fell out of my chair. What a perfect use of clear materials to create a layered spooky Halloween scene. This card is blowing up on Pinterest, so definitely check it out on her blog here: Karen's Halloween Spooky Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Karen used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the Wavy Label Pop 'n Cuts Insert for her card.

Raquel Mason is next, showing a very clever combination of embossing techniques - both machine embossing on the Stitched Framelits, plus powder embossing on the resulting surface. Love this beautiful Christmas card where the greeting appears suspended. She also made an additional stair step "chunky" pop-up on the back shelf to animate the snowflake. Check out the details on Raquel's blog here: Raquel's Christmas Clear Creation

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Raquel used the Square Pop 'n Cuts Base w/Decorative Edge, the Sassy Label Pop 'n Cuts Insert and matching Sassy Label Stitched Framelits for her card.

This card by Kelly Booth just makes you say "Awww!". She created a fireplace by using the Multi-Tier insert cut from clear and then only covered the areas that would make it appear as a fireplace. Love the use of the framed photo on the top tier and the cute pajama girl on the bottom tier. Check out all the details on her blog here: Kelly's Christmas Fireplace Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Kelly used used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the Multi-Tier Insert and the Foyer Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for her card.

How cute is this next card by Frances Byrne? Answer - CUTE! I love Frances' use of clear materials for the card using the new Sassy Label Pop 'n Cuts insert with companion Embossing Folder set. The embossing folder created highlights on the pop-up as well as the background embossed pattern. You'll want to check it out on her blog here: Frances Byrne's You're a Hoot Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Frances used the Square Pop 'n Cuts Base w/Decorative Edge, the Sassy Label Pop 'n Cuts Insert and matching Sassy Label Stitched Framelits plus the Sassy & Circle Label Textured Impressions Folders, the Chevron Sizzlits Strip and the Banner & Borders Thinlits for her card.

Helen Cryer joins us again with a sweet clear Accordion Album card. I love the way the clear materials allow her banners (bunting) to appear suspended. She also used Velcro to attach the 3D bow so it can be removed for sending. So clever! Check out all the details on her blog here: Helen's Hello Kitty Accordion Card.

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

Helen used the Bigz Accordion AlbumBigz Frame & Label, Bracket, Love Sizzlits Set and Banner & Borders Thinlits for this card.

One last inspiration card - my "Warm-up" card from last week. I do so love gruesome Halloween cards. Perhaps one day I will share my collection of eyeball stamps. (heh heh heh) Check out this "Hand over the Candy Corns" card on my blog here: Karen's Macabre Halloween Card

Sizzix Die Cutting Inspiration | Clear Creations Pop Ups

I used the Pop 'n Cuts A2 Base with the Multi-Tier Insert and the Foyer Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for this card.

I was in Fort Worth last weekend teaching at CKU and one of the Keynote slides I show my students is all of the resources that are available for inspiration and instruction using Karen Burniston dies. In the sidebar of my blog you will find these helpful links (don't try to click them from here - it's a screen shot) You will find links to the blogs of all eleven of the designers from this month's Designer Challenge in the sidebar of my blog. You will find a big blue button to easily subscribe to my mailing list for ONE e-mail a month (believe me, I will not fill your in-box!) and you'll also find links to all of my Social Media accounts, including my YouTube channel and Pinterest boards.

    Fantastic cards and thanks for a clear and concise video. I find it so much easier to understand the steps when I see them done. I wonder if all the clear packaging I keep from my dies would be any use here? or maybe it's too stiff. Love your card, of course, and the fox card with the little boy, great scrapping idea, and that fabulous haunted house card.

    What a goldmine of ideas. How I wish I'd seen this before I created my clear floating ghosts on my grandkid's cards! I used clear transparency to cut a circular spiral, and it came out with space for 3 ghosts, but wasn't what I had in my mind - clearly a different picture, but it worked OK. Now I have your clear instructions for all types of clear creations and can't wait to get started with them. Had to order the 3D tiered die, of course! Thanks for sharing!

    Is it better to use heavier clear material for the center clear floor of the pop and cuts? Like to recycle the clear packaging that the dies come in. Or perhaps, that would clearly be too thick!

    Reply
    • Karen Burniston

      Denise, you can use the packaging - I used it on the Candy Corns card and several of the Designers used clear packaging. Packaging is thicker than transparencies, so you'll want to bend and work the folds really well, but it will definitely work.

    It's clear to me that I MUST go spend lots of time in my crafts studio using some clear acetate pieces which I've saved from all the packages of Karen Burniston pop-n-cut dies. The only negative thing I can say about all this inspiration is that my addiction is clearing out my checking account at a rapid pace. But so worth it!! Time to play with all the new 'clear' ideas.

    You inspired me to use a clear Pop n Cuts to create a rainbow of butterflies dancing across the card for my granddaughter's birthday - since it was so easy and impressive, I'll be doing many more cards with clear pop n cuts!

    It is very clear to me that I was so busy visiting so many amazing blogs and looking at fantastic clear pop up inspiration that I forgot to comment, shame on me. The designer projects are jaw dropping amazing. I love so many of them. Clearly I really must try using packaging from my dies, I really need to get back in my studio. Now, that the plumbers are finished and the giant hole in our bedroom is filled in, I can reorganize my art room and get creating. Clear pop ups will be popping up soon!

    I love the idea of the clear pop ups inside the pop n' cuts dies. What a fun Halloween card, Karen. And the other Designer's have some fun cards too. I clearly need the square base to build upon in my Sizzix stash!

    I think it is quite clear that I don't have all the Pop 'n Cuts I should have just yet, but I'm working on it -- (clearly, winning would help me reach my goal, LOL!!). Awesome projects - my next Pop 'n Cuts card will have a clear component for sure! Another awesome video, Karen!
