Papertrey Ink Countdown Day #5: Year of Psalms: May and Mix & Mat

Good morning and happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there!  I hope you get to spend a beautiful day of blessings with your loved ones!

It's the final day of the Papertrey Ink May countdown and I have just a few more projects to share with you.  Today my Year of Psalms: May set and this month's Mix & Mat die collection are being showcased.  

The Year of Psalms: May set features Psalm 18:2 and is perfect for pairing with so many other sets from the Papertrey line up. 

This month's Mix & Mat: Herringbone die set features a fun cornered frame along with a herringbone insert and stitched frame.  Use all three dies from the set, or just one or two for lots of different looks.  Or mix and match them with any of the dies from the previously released Mix & Mat sets...they're all interchangeable for tons of options!

These new products will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm ET on May 15th from Papertrey Ink.  

My first card uses the Year of Psalms set.  I thought it would be perfect to pair with the older Guiding Lights set.  I've always love that set.  So perfect for masculine cards!  


I started by stamping the lighthouse onto a panel of watercolor paper.  I misted the stamp before impressing it on the paper so that I would get more of a watercolor look.  Then I used reinkers to add a watercolored cliff and water.  I'm definitely not a watercolor artist, so trust me, you could do it too...pretty easy!  I added some color to the sky as well.


I stamped a few seagulls from the Guiding Lights set and finished it off by stamping the Year of Psalms verse with black ink.

 My next card uses the new Mix & Mat: Herringbone dies.  I've used this die collection several times already during the countdown, but mostly on masculine cards.  I decided to pair it with some flowers for a more feminine look.  It's very versatile and works great for both!


I started by cutting the Herringbone die from white cardstock, and the corners from Berry Sorbet.  I added clusters of flowers to the corners, which were cut from the patterned papers in the Bloom & Grow kit.


The sentiment was done using the Bold & Beautiful stamps and dies.  I layered the finished panel over a Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical card base, cut from Lilac Grace cardstock.

 That wraps up today's projects!  I'll be back tomorrow with a fun surprise! *wink*
