Just Believe for DD52 & FMS88

Greetings, Stampers! Today I have a project which I made for two challenges. It features several retiring products, including the Just Believe Stamp Set. Though I really love when new products are released, I'm so sad to say goodbye to the old. I have used this stamp set quite a bit over the years, and as a matter of fact I think it was in my starter kit when I first signed up as a Stampin' Up demonstrator. Oh, the memories... LOL!

It's the one year anniversary of Dynamic Duos! To celebrate, they are asking us to create a project using any of their past color combos. It's no surprise that I gravitated to Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink as I love pinks and greens together. Sadly, both of these colors will be retiring at the end of this month.

The sketch by Amy at Freshly Made Sketches was perfect for my project. I love that there was a little spot for DSP below the ribbon.

I really like the way this image looks using the Faux Silk technique. It's really easy to do. First stamp your image on a piece of tissue paper a little larger than your card stock. In this case I used markers to ink my stamp. Crumple the tissue paper up into a ball. The more you crumple the more little creases you'll get. Then cover your Whisper White card stock completely using a glue stick. Spread out your tissue paper over the card stock without smoothing it out to maintain the creases. Then just trim with your paper snips and you're done!
