July Diva Dare ~ Day 9

Hi there!  It's Jackie here with day 9 of the July Diva Dare.  Haven't all the girls projects been fantastic?  I tell you, I'm a lucky girl to be surrounded by such talent!

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Sentimental About Paper!  It's time to dig into all that gorgeous patterned paper you've been hoarding saving (we know you have some!!)!  Showcase all those amazing sentiment stamps (no images) to create a new and never before seen project!  Paired with pretty patterned paper, Verve's famous sentiments will take center stage!  While it is not necessary to use Verve stamps to enter, we would love to see them if you've got 'em!  To sweeten up the challenge even more, stay tuned to learn how you could win some brand new Verve!


Here is how I answered the dare:



I used the gorgeous new set, New Mercies, combined with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #201. I stamped Psalm 130:5 in Dark Chocolate ink, cut it out with a Labels 16 Nestability and sponged it with some Bermuda Bay ink before removing it from the die. The papers I used are from the new Authentique Splendid Collection. It's hard to tell from the picture, but I ran the yellow gingham layer through my paper crimper. It adds a lot of texture. I made a seam binding "double" bow and finished it with a small tag cut from the same patterned paper pad finished with some Kraft twine and a small butterfly diecut. A couple more beautiful butterflies, some buttons tied with twine and machine stitching finish the card.


Here is a close up of the details and the dimension that I love......
