New Release Blog Hop - Come to the Circus

 Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our Karen Burniston Products - KB Riley LLC May Release Blog Hop. The Design Team members 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 "Ball" Die Set - Mini Ball Pop-up
  • 2 new Add-Ons Die Sets - Mini Ball Add-ons 1 Gnomes; Mini Ball Add-ons 2 - Monkey and Lion
  • 1 new Accordion Die Set - Landscape Rectangle Accordion
  • 1 new Crosshatch Die Set - Short Rectangles - Crosshatch
  • 1 new Charms die Set - Flutter Charms
  • 1 new Slimline Sized Die Set - Long Flap and Closure
  • 1 new Alphabet Set - Mini Alphabet and Numbers
Dies are available to order now on the website.
When Karen showed the design team members the new dies, she made a sample to demonstrate the difference in size of the new Mini Ball Pop-Up in comparison to the previously released other two ball pop-ups.  That gave me an idea for a fun card, so I ran with it.  This card is the result of that inspiration.  I had gotten this cute circus paper pad as a free gift for purchasing something at a booth at a recent stamp show.  I added a bit more darker green at the bottom (using the KB Nature's Edges die to coordinate with the hills on the paper) so that I could add the sentiment, using the brand new Mini Alphabet and Numbers set for the lettering.  I love that the letters have shadows that you can use (or not!) when creating.


When you open the card, up pops this cute elephant, made with all three ball pop-up sets.  The new Mini Ball Pop-Up made the perfect addition to this cute elephant, the parts of which are from Animal Add-ons 2.



My daughter has already grabbed this card to give to her friend's one-year-old son for his birthday!

Omgawsh, your circus themed elephant pop up ball card is totally adorable! I love your idea of using the new tiny ball as a ball for the pop up animals. Haha, it sounds like it would be an obvious thing to do, but I would have never thought to do it. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration!
