Karen Burniston New Release Blog Hop

 Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our Karen Burniston Products - KB Riley LLC November Release Blog Hop. The Design Team have come together with Karen today for a fun blog hop to celebrate the release of 8 new dies. Sneak peeks of the new release started last week, and the dies are available to order NOW!

This release includes:
• 1 new Add-Ons Die Sets - Animals Add-ons 4
• 1 new Slimline Pop-up Die Sets - Little Labels Pop-up
• 2 new sentiment sets - Word Set 14 - Hugs; Happy Birthday Shadow
• 1 new Crosshatch Die Set - Labels - Crosshatch
• 1 new Animals die set - Bayou Animals
• 1 new Charms die set - Big Birthday Charms
• 1 new Border Blends die set - Border Blends Trims
Dies are available to order now on the website.

The main new die I'm using is Animals Add-ons 4, which coordinates with the Bitty Ball Pop-Up.  I fell in love with it when I saw the packaging,  I've made several cards using this die.  The first one also uses a previously released die set, Ocean Animals.  I made a belly band to close the card, which is 6" x 7".  The background paper on the front of the belly band is a slimline paper pad from Whimsy Stamps, cut down to fit.

When you open the card, up pops this adorable octopus.



I've flattened him down so you can see that the card COULD HAVE BEEN slightly smaller, but I didn't want to crowd him in.

There are two other animals you could make with this die set as well -- an alligator and a frog.  I showed these two other animals on my blog last week.   As a Floridian, I couldn't resist making Albert the Alligator (the mascot of the University of Florida).  Even though I am a fan of the Florida State University Seminoles, I'm an equal-opportunity crafter.


And the frog is quite cute as well.
