Papertrey Ink March Release Day 4

This March Papertrey Ink countdown has just flown by and today is the 4th and final day! I had so much fun creating these final two projects to share with you today! Just a reminder, everything will be available for purchase tomorrow night at 10 pm ET. 

My first card for today features the latest addition in the Reflections series and I think this might be one of my favorites! I absolutely love this scripture found in Luke and I know it will come in handy for all kinds of different occasions.

I found a pretty scripture illustration on Pinterest that was the inspiration for today's card. I like to use my "card inspiration" folder when I'm not feeling very inspired or when I'm in a hurry! These past few days I have been in a hurry so it's always nice to having a "jumping off" point, if you know what I mean!

To begin, I got to work on the scripture sentiment; for this one, I used my old SU! Stampin' Write markers to selectively ink the verse using a few different colors until I was satisfied with the look.

Once that was done, I used the Reflections: March dies to cut it out. I set it aside and got to work on the background panel. I used the new Watercolor Wonderful Stencil Collection, but this time in two of the corners for a different look.

I trimmed the background panel to 4 by 5 1/4 inches and layered it onto a top-folding A2 Lilac Grace card base using foam squares for dimension. Then I die cut the flowers and leaves using the Into the Blooms: Clover dies (twice for everything) and then colored them using finger daubers and assorted Distress Oxide inks.

If you have eagle eyes, you'll also notice a few sprigs from the Spring Silhouette Die that I had leftover from a different project! ha ha! I arranged the flowers and leaves, with quite a bit of fussing, I might add, until I was satisfied with the arrangement. I added some glitter and sequins to finish it off! This card makes me so happy!
I had so much fun with the purple, yellow, and green color combo I decided to use it again for my final card for today and for the countdown! This card features the new Elegant Edges: Flourish dies and the new Elegant Script Hot Foil Plate.

To begin, I got my foil machine hot (medium heat, 15 seconds) and used champagne foil on a panel of Lilac Grace cardstock. This particular Hot Foil Plate is a horizontal placement, so I ended up just using a portion of it since I was making a vertical card.

Once again, I used the Watercolor Wonderful Stencil collection in the corner of the white panel; in hindsight I should have picked the other two corners because of the flower placement. I had originally planned to have the flourish at the bottom, but after fidgeting with it, I decided to place it at the top.

I used the smaller size included in the new Reflections: March die collection and stamped the sentiment from the Pro Stamper's Box: March using black ink. I mentioned on day one of the countdown that this is my favorite sentiment included in the box.

I used the Into the Blooms: Gardenia Die once again to accent the sentiment. 

Glitter and sequins finish off this card! Thanks for fluttering by!
