Simon Says.........Pop It Up!

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


Our theme this week is Pop it Up! and the team is playing with fun Lawn Fawn goodies!

It's September, and that means all things fall, so I pulled out a much loved set of stitched leaf dies and made 2 cards.

supplies: Audrey Blue and Dark Chocolate card stock, Lawn Fawn's Knock on Wood paper pad,  and Stitched Leaves dies, floral and woodgrain patterned papers from Doodlebug Flea Market and Happy Harvest, Simon Stitched Alphabet clear stamps, Simon's Stitched Circle die, stamped sentiment from MFT Harvest Mouse set, adhesive foam squares, wood dot, twine

Since the leaf dies have built-in stitch lines as details, I thought it would be fun to pair them with Simon's stitched letters.  I paper-pieced the letters onto a stitched circle, adding a stamped sentiment below, then attached a trio of the oak leaves to the top and bottom and popped that circle above a panel of the same fall patterned paper that I used for the letters.

I used the same leaves for my next card to make a wreath.

supplies: cream and dark chocolate card stock, woodgrain patterned papers from Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood and Doodlebug Happy Harvest, Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die, Simon's Four Seasons Sayings stamps, MFT Wonky Rectangles die, twine, adhesive foam squares
