I just love this new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Just Believe (pg.109) and I was very excited to know we were getting it in our Convention Bags this year.  I have seen tons of beautiful projects with this stamp set.  There is a card in the catalog on page 71 that pops out at me when I look through the catalog – but I don’t have that particular stamp set so I decided instead to use the layout and colors with the Just Believe stamp set and here is the result:

I was happy with how it turned out. This was the first time I have used my Scallop Oval Frame die – I did figure out that there is a difference between each end of the oval so for this card I had to make sure the scallop frame was in the same direction as the white inside so they matched up perfectly.  I used a technique with this set that I’m not sure what to call it – it probably has a name.  Basically you ink the entire image with the Wild Wasabi ink pad and then use a Blender Pen to remove the ink from the flowers.  Then add color back to the flowers with a marker.
