Inspired Stamps DT Challenge plus Scripture

Scripture stamp is 1Corinthians 13:13, Inspired Stamps
Hello and thank you for visiting.  Today we were asked to design something using Inspired Stamps scripture.  I used 1Corinthians 13:13. These stamps are made in the U.S.A. and usually ship out the  day you place your order.  Please check out the other beautiful projects by our DT and check out the wide range of scripture stamps at 

I decided to make a home dec item today.  I wanted something beautiful and inspirational in my work space. I have a newly remodeled craft space and the storage items are black and white, green is my favorite color and my desk sits in front of a picture window with green, mustard and rust striped curtains, and  so that is how my color scheme was born.  I painted the frame black and crackled to reveal the white base coat.  I am not sure that my picture does it justice, but I really liked how this project turned out.

Project Details:
Stamps: 1 Corinthians 13:13, Inspired stamps;
background stamps from polka dots and paisley, SU!;
clear background stamps, Martha Stewart(used as pattern on flowers and butterflies)
Paper: white cardstock, Wausau; grungeboard, Tim Holtz
Ink: Tuxedo black, Memento; really rust, old olive, more mustard, SU!
Tools: blossom dies, Spellbinders; turning over a new leaf dies, PTI; butterfly die, Spellbinders; butterfly punch, Martha Stewart(Note:  you cannot punch through grungeboard, so I pressed down to get impression and hand cut image).
Embellishments: pearl, Recollections; mini clothespin; wooden frame; Dollar Tree

Please leave me a comment about my project.  This was a lot of fun to make and I think it could make great gifts for those you love at the holidays. It would be a great addition to any ones desk and you can find their favorite scripture verse at . Please share your inspiration, what are you planning on making for holiday gifts this year.  Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!
