It's the 8th again and time for a Divine Design. As a reminder, or if you haven't visited here before, you can read all about the project here. This is a 6"x6" page that will go in a brag book album along with photo pages of my daughters for my Mom the end of the year (don't worry, it will be a surprise since Mom has no computer!).
I'll only get a tiny bit sappy this month about this project . . . I've been thinking about and missing my Dad lately. Maybe it's because he loved his Texas Rangers baseball games and never missed them! Today is opening day for the Rangers' new season -- maybe that's why he's been on my mind. Dad passed away two weeks before my youngest daughter was born, almost 6 years ago. I thought about him when I read this verse: "May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He smile upon you." Numbers 6:24-25. Yes, indeed, I know He is, Dad.
I knew I wanted to use Karen Lockhart's Tulips on this project in some way and decided to do a border. This is Ellen Hutson's Stamp of the Month, so check out the great deal she has for you!
I used a stamp positioner to line up the block stamp and stamped in Ranger's Adirondack Espresso dye ink on one of the solid light pink patterns of paper in BasicGrey's Two Scoops 6"x6" pad. I colored the border with these Copic markers:
The verse is from Papertrey Ink's Everyday Blessings. It was stamped on more of the light pink paper and then cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Petite Scalloped Oval. But before cutting, I inked the inside of the die (that goes next to the paper) with a rose chalk ink from ColorBox's Rose Petals Queue. Then when you cut & emboss, the ink transfers to the paper, giving you an instant border . . . how cool is that, it looks double-matted!
The tag is also a Spellbinder die (S3-028 Standard Tags) and was cut from a darker solid pink Two Scoops pattern. The corner die cut is Spellbinders S3-107 Decorative Photo Corners. Sheer pink ribbon is Making Memories.
