Karen Burniston February 2023 Blog Hop

Welcome to our Karen Burniston Products - KB Riley LLC February Release Blog Hop. The Design Team (plus me!) have come together today for a fun blog hop to celebrate the release of 6 new dies. Sneak peeks of the new release started last week, and the dies are available to order NOW!
This small but mighty release hits all of our die categories, including:
  • 1 new Charm die set
  • 1 new Word set
  • 1 new Tiny House Add-Ons sets
  • 1 new Pop-up die set
  • 1 new Crosshatch shape die set
  • 1 new Border die set
Dies are available to order now at KarenBurniston.com 
For my project I'm sharing the assembly video for our new Beach Bar Tiny House Add-ons set. This die is the sixth Add-ons set to fit our popular foundation Tiny House Pop-up.

In addition to the new Beach Bar Tiny House Add-ons, I also used three more of the new release dies - Beach Borders, Word Set 16 - Beach Happy Hour, and Rectangles and Labels - Crosshatch. The foundation die (required) is the Tiny House Pop-up.
My card measures 5" x 6" when closed and can be mailed in an A7 envelope. The front features the cocktail border and crabs from the Beach Borders, the scalloped rectangle and labels from Rectangles and Labels - Crosshatch, a palm tree and flamingo from Beach Bar Tiny House Add-ons, and a greeting from Word Set 16 - Beach Happy Hour.
Beach Bar Front
Open the card and the Beach Bar pops up, complete with thatched roof, sand, palms, flamingos and fancy drinks.

Here's a closer look at the Beach Bar. I also used the thatched roof die to make a fringed edge for a little beach towel.
Beach Bar CloseUp
The thatched roof can be styled with as much windblown and curled thatch as desired, as you can see in this similar card (the packaging sample) which is a 5x5 square card. To attach a cluster of drinks on the bar I used a strip of transparency attached to a side of the opening and then the drinks attached to the transparency.
On April 15, 2023 I'll be teaching a Zoom Class featuring three of the new dies, including the Beach Bar Tiny House Add-ons. Find the details on our Events Page. Kits must be purchased through a participating store.

Here are the dies and supplies used on my card. The waves paper is an older PhotoPlay design from my stash called "Cool Off" (#FS2528).
