Stampin Addicts Retiring Stamp Set Blog Hop begins tomorrow,
Friday, April 27th (at Noon) and ends Sunday, April 29th!
Each stop will feature one retiring stamp set. Lots of inspiration to behold!
Well. If you checked in yesterday, you may remember my stepped up swaps that I did for a Stampin Addicts Stepped Up Swap a few weeks ago.
I have 2 more such cards to show you today! This time I used the stamp set, Just Believe.
Here is the Basic Version of the card.
I stamped the background with the largest stamp in the set. This is an easy way to add some interest to the background but not overpowering the focal point. I happen to love the Lace Border Punch (and it is RETIRING!) so I added that across the bottom. And some tiny Basic Pearls are my only bling.
My Stepped Up Version of the same card.
It is the exact same card except for:
Embossed Very Vanilla layer
Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon - RETIRING!
Itty Bitty Punched flowers - with Basic Pearl centers
Basic Pearls in the corner.
Again, both cards are suitable, but if you want to make a card extra special, adding a few embellishments can make all of the difference!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink
