Sending You Hogs and Kisses

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I have a super fun card to share with you today! This month's Karen Burniston Designer Challenge is all about her new Barn Pop Stand die set. I am absolutely in love with these new dies!

The front of my card is very simple - the sentiment gives a bit of a hint as to what's inside.

And here is the amazing barn, along with Virgil the Pig. So adorable! The Pop Stand die cuts perfect little tabs that the barn attaches to. And, how cool is this - the barn doors actually open and close. Behind the doors, I added a sentiment using Karen's new Farm Greetings stamp set. It was stamped on one of the dies from the coordinating Hay There Pop Stand die set.

I can't wait to play more with this set. I've seen what the other designers have been doing and it is such a versatile die. There are so many different directions you can take this one!

Most of the supplies I used can be found at Elizabeth Craft Designs via the links below. The Barn and Virgil will be in stock very soon.

Check back tomorrow for another fun card using these new dies. I think you'll love it!


  1. fabulous card, love the designer paper you selected for your barn

  2. I like how the XO under "Virgil" mirrors the doors and windows in the barn. It's a whimsical but thoughtfully detailed card.

  3. Love her dies - have many of them - but the paper! Ooooh the paper! What is it???

    1. B - the paper is called Bramble Rose by My Mind's Eye. Unfortunately, it seems to be discontinued, but I did find the large pads online at Hobby Lobby:
      Hope that helps!

  4. Love the Pink and muted colors so perfect Shelly!!
