Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the CAS Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Pop It Up

 You can make a pop up card or use 3D foam to pop up elements on your project. We will be looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme

We are showcasing Lawn Fawn Products this week! You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge but if you have some we would love to see them used!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I LOVE Lawn Fawn’s Pop Scalloped Box Die. So easy to make pop up cards and I enjoy making it. I also used Out of this World stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn to make my galaxy pop up card.
I used Royal Purple cardstock from Simon Says Stamp as my cardbase. I die cut all the elements for the pop up card using the Royal Purple cardstock and the Pop Up Scalloped Box die. I sponged Distress Oxide inks – Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Wild Honey and Black Soot on all the elements and spattered copic opaque white to get the galaxy look. I did this on all sides of the elements. I then assembled the pop up box.
Then I stamped all the planets, sun, astronaut and the rocket from Out of This World stamp set using Simon’s Intense Black Ink and coloured them all using copic markers. Then I die cut them all out using the coordinating dies. I used strips of acetate sheet to add the pop up elements on the box.
On the sides of the box, I used Simon Says Stamp, Space Journey die to die cut some planets in different colours and adhered on the sides. One the front panel, I adhered the sun and added white heat embossed secondary sentiment on strips of black cardstock.
The main sentiment is on front on the pop up box. I die cut the stitched black panel using the die from the Pop Up Scalloped Box die set and white heat embossed the main sentiment. The sentiments are from lawn Fawn Out of This World stamp set.

I love how this card turned out. Very cool. So now it’s YOUR turn!

CAS is my kind of style. Off late I have been more technique focussed. So it was refreshing to make a clean and simple card. I have used CAS-ual Fridays Sleigh Bells stamp set along with Bell Tags dies to make my card for the challenge.
For the background, I used Simon Says Stamp Carolyn stencil and distress inks in Candied Apple and Festive Berries sponged in ombre fashion from the edges fading to inside of the card.
The bell and the jingle bells are stamped with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and coloured using copic markers. They are then layered and adhered to the centre of the card front with foam adhesives to give dimension. To add to the festive look, I doubled the May Arts gold twine and tied into a bow on top of the bell cluster. The sentiment is from another CAS-ual Friday stamp set called Lovely Blessings. The sentiments in this set are nice and bold and love the script font on them. Finally finished the card with some Sparkly Clear sequins and brushed clear shimmer on the jingle bells. Here is a closeup

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Its release day at Taylored Expressions

Hello and welcome back. Today is the  release day at Taylored Expressions. Yay! All the birthday and fall themed new products are now available for purchase at Taylored Expressions store.

I have two new projects to share with you today. The first project is using the new cutting plate called Sympathy Blooms. These detailed cutting plates from TE are gorgeous and you don’t need anything more to make cards. But there is an overlay die called Blooms Overlay. These are individual flowers and leaves from the cutting plate which can be layered on the cutting plate. You will see on my card below.

I have used Nuvo Mousse in Fresh Copper and Spring Green to sponged on the background and on a piece of scrap white cardstock. I die cut Buttercream Frosting cardstock using the cutting plate and adhered on top of the sponged background. This panel is adhered on the card base.

Then I die cut the scrap pieces of cardstock sponged with Fresh Copper with the Blooms Overlay dies especially the flowers and adhered on top of the Sympathy Blooms die cut but slightly offset. Simple card but the detailed cutting plate makes a great impact.

All supplies used to make this card are listed below.

My second card for today showcases a mini stamp set called Simply Said Thanks.

 

I have used one of the sentiment in the stamp set both on the background as well as the main sentiment. I used Dijon TE dye ink to stamped the sentiment on Buttercream Frosting card panel. I trimmed the panel a tiny bit, roughed the edges and adhered on the Toffee card base.

For the focal point of the card, I die cut a Toffee cardstock and a vellum paper using the second stitched rectangle die from Stitched Rectangle Stacklet. I then stamped and white heat embossed the sunflower from Big Blooms Sunflower on the vellum panel and adhered the panel on the Toffee panel using tombow glue. This layered panel is adhered on the card front using foam adhesives. The same sentiment is stamped using the new Mocha dye ink and versamark to clear heat emboss. I then trimmed the sentiment and adhered as shown. The sequins are from Wedding sequins collection.

All supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Hope you liked all my projects for this release. All the new release products are now available for purchase at Taylored Expressions Store. Head over to TE Blog for more inspirations and details on the birthday giveaway winners.  Thanks for stopping by. Happy Shopping!
