Just Believe!

One of the sets we received in our bag at Stampin' Up! Convention and used for our Make and Takes is the wonderful set of nine stamps called Just Believe (#116948 w or #120453 c, p. 109).  This understated and elegant card was made at a pre-convention stamp camp.

 The base is Sahara Sand layered with Crumb Cake and the new In Color Pear Pizzazz.  All of the stamps used on this card with the exception of the En Francais background stamped in Sahara Sand, are in the set, along with several others.

The circular floral stamp was stamped in Pear Pizzazz then punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and layered onto a circle of Crumb Cake punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  A hole was punched through the center of this with the larger hole punch on the Crop-a-Dile and the new Pear Pizzazz ribbon threaded through and tied with a length of Linen Thread for a nice touch.

As you can see, a good bit of sponging and tearing gives this card some interesting character.  I enjoyed making it and was pleased with the results!  I'm eager to make more projects with this beautiful set!

Thanks for dropping by today!
