Just Believe

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm showing you the swaps I made for Michelle Last's "Stamp with me Reward Day". For all her downline who have promoted to the next level, Michelle kindly invited us to a fun day of stamping today (Sunday). Unfortunately, due to family commitments, I wasn't able to attend, but did join in the swaps ... I've used the lovely Just Believe stamp set, tried a little distressing on the scallop flowers & Newsprint DP which I think gives it a shabby chic look! I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.
For the vintage flower:
1. Punch out 3 scallop circles in Newsprint DP, distress with Stampin' Up! ink & used the sponge daubers (love these) to accent the edges.
2. Scrunch into a tight ball, then carefully unfold.
3. Punch out 1" circle in Newsprint DP then layer scallop circles with 1" circle on top and secure with Jumbo Eyelet.

For those ladies who received my swaps at Michelle's stampin' day don't forget to carefully separate the scallop layers on the flower, pulling forward for added dimension (obviously they had to lay flat in the post)!
