Scripture Door Hanger - Joy!

Recently, I had the privilege of serving at the Women's Retreat for our church. After a very fun, refreshing weekend in the Word with some very fun, refreshing women, I wanted to make a little something for the fantastic ladies on our planning team who worked tirelessly and prayed to make it all come together. This was our key bible verse. For my base, I covered Chipboard Coasters that I ordered from here. You can do so much with those little coasters (did you read what I said? Cheap and fun and versatile). On this project, I made them into door hangers (or a little wall hanging) tied with tulle and seam binding. The flower made from my favorite go-to flower lately -- Papertrey Beautiful Blooms II. The petals are so bendy! Adds nice depth! The leaves are some of the BEST leaves I've found -- once again, from Papertrey Leaf Prints. So real looking and all!
Let's take a look at the border around the bible verse. I chose a Spellbinders die that fit the verse, and then I brushed it with a stipple brush, and then stamped the dainty flowers and leaves. Some of my favorite projects have included the use of these stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. Click here - this was my first project, on the day that I bought them, including a tutorial.
Here is another example, and gosh golly, here is another one! I must like it - hope you do too! It's a good feeling to really USE the stamps in our stash, isn't it?!
