"Memory" Game With ODBD Scripture Stamps!


Hi everyone! Since this month's theme over at Christian Paper Crafts is "Back To School", "Bible Study", and all things related to learning, I couldn't resist but create a Memory Game for the monthly Blog Hop over at the Christian Paper Crafts Creative Blog! Everyone can join in......create a card, layout, or altered item with this month's theme and link your blog post HERE with the linky tool. Can't wait to see you there!



Our Daily Bread designs has just released the 2nd Customer Favorites set, called "Scripture Series 2" and a border set to frame the beautiful scripture stamps, called "Scrolly Borders". What better way to feature so many verses but with a Memory Game?

Since the "game pieces" needed to be square, I chose four stamps from "Scripture Series 1" and four stamps from "Scripture Series 2", all of which fit inside the "Scrolly Border" stamp. To make the pieces more sturdy, I cut sixteen 3x3 pieces each of cardboard, white cardstock, and designer paper.....rounded all of the corners, stamped the borders and scriptures using a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner to get them all straight, then adhered all of layers together. The butterfly images from the ODBD "Faith" set were stamped, cut out with the custom-made "Butterfly Branch" cutting die, colored with markers and sponge daubers, then glued to the top of each piece. Each piece was sponged on the edge for a little dimension.



I created a small box using my Scor-Buddy along with this tutorial on the ODBD blog, adhered another Butterfly Branch and some pink pearls on top, plus some May Arts Satin Ribbon around the lid with some extra hand-cut butterflies adhered. Though all of the layers took a while to complete, this was a pretty simple project.....I will definitely make more of these in the future! What a perfect way for a child (or anyone) to learn scripture...with a fun game!!!
