Simon Says Pop It Up!



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!
