SUOC66 Just Believe

Time for another Stampin' Up Only challenge; today we are focusing on Easter.  Let's celebrate my favorite, and the holiest, of Christian holidays.  I just love the sentiment in the Just Believe stamp set, "Some things have to be believed to be seen."  If this just doesn't describe God... or even faith in general.


I started off with masking and sponging.  It still looked rather plain, so I kept adding layers of stamp images.  Then I had to add some telescoping cut-outs to distract from my mistakes.  :)

Nothing too fancy with the cut-outs.  I just ran all the framelits through the Big Shot at one time, held down with post-it notes, and then back-filled the holes with blank Whisper White card stock cut-outs.  Totally not where I was going with this card, but it turned out fun anyway.

Stamps: Just Believe, French Foliage, En Francais BG; Paper: Whisper White; Ink: Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand, Black Stazon; Accessories: Sponges, Post-it Notes, Windows Frames Collection framelits, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
