Hello everyone and welcome to another day of the Papertrey Ink April release countdown! I have projects to share with you today created with the new Quoted: Start again set.

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on April 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.

Isn't this just a beautiful quote? And it's so true.

For this first card, I embossed the image onto watercolor paper with clear embossing powder and then added color with my Clean Color markers and a water brush.

There are lots of little details in this image and so to make them pop just a bit more I painted a gray tone around the outside. If you do a wash wash first before you add the color then the color will flow and spread and leave a nice soft edge.

I used the Noted: Scalloped A1 dies for my card base and for cutting out the main image area. A bit of ribbon tied into a bow around the one side was the perfect way to finish the card off.

Supplies (this list contains affiliate links):

watercolor paper (Hobby Lobby), ribbon (Stampin’ Up!), Clean Color markers (Zig), sequins

I did this sweet little card next. This time I used the Noted: Scalloped Square die for the card base. I added a little color with an ink blender and then added some splatters with water and more ink.

I used just a part of the image from the Quoted: Start Again set for this card. I used some tape to mask off the areas right on the stamp that I didn't want to use, inked up the stamp, took off the tape, and then stamped the image onto my project.

I colored the flowers in with my Clean Color markers and a white gel pen. I added a few lacy details die cut from the new Lovely Lace mini kit.

For this last card, I created a border design with the new Gran's Garden set. I just added flowers and leaves all around the outside edge of my cardstock and that left a nice open area in the center to stamp the quote.

I used Fresh Snow ink to stamp the quote with my Misti tool and being able to stamp it several times gave me a nice crisp and bright impression.

I added a few more lacy details to the top and bottom of this card using dies from the Lovely Lace mini kit.
