Just Believe Swaps

Here is the card I made for my stamp club swaps.  I got the inspiration from an altered notebook layout in a recent issue of the demonstrator only magazine Stampin' Success (another great perk to becoming a demo---have any other questions just ask, I can talk about stamping all day!).  It was fun playing with some of the new colors and new stamp set Just Believe.

  I really like this layout and want to try it out with some other colors and stamps.  It's amazing how different the same layout can look just by changing out a few elements.  For this one the base is Crumb Cake with the leaves also in Crumb Cake ink (I'm soooo glad we have ink to match this cardstock now!).  I used the scallop border punch on the top edge of the Very Vanilla layer.  I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso and then paper pierced across using the template to make sure it was straight.  I also pierced each scallop on the top to bring it all together.  The 3 circle panels were stamped in Certainly Celery, Marina Mist, and Cherry Cobbler and punched out with the 11/4" circle punch.  I layered these on 13/8" circles punched out of Early Espresso.

  My stamp club member who participated in the swap gave me permission to share their awesome swap cards as well so I'll be back to post those tomorrow once I get them off the camera.  It might take some doing since we got a new computer (thanks to my fall down the stairs last week!) and I haven't learned to download the photos from the camera yet....wish me luck!

  Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!
