No-Coloring Cards

Happy Friday! It's Jules of Paper Gems by Jules back on the blog to share a no-coloring card idea I had using one of my favorite Sentiment Kits, Hello Fresh Start (Jan. 2021) and another favorite background stamp, Wonky Stripes Background. These cards are simple to make and have lots of details.

To start, I stamp the Wonky Stripes background stamp onto white card stock. I used Gina K Designs Innocent Pink ink and did it a few times to make it bold. Next, I die cut it using the largest die of the Scallops & Rectangles Nesting Die set. Using the same Innocent Pink Ink, I shaded in a piece of scrap and then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. Using a black ink spray, I did some light splatters.

For the next layer, I stamped the floral from the Hello Fresh Start Sentiment Kit using VersaMark and Gold Nuvo Embossing Powder. Next, I fussy cut the floral and used the stitched rectangle die from the nesting set. (Tip: When die cutting an edge on this floral, I let parts pop out so that they don't get cut.) I used the same die to trim down the sentiment as a banner, so they all have that stitched edge. Adhere each piece with thin foam tape.

Using the same techniques, I made a second card with In the Navy Ink by Gina K. Another added embellishment was gold string and complimentary sequins. On this card, I added the floral image and sentiment on the left side.

These cards can be easily reproduced and have lots of detail without any coloring. And how great is it that Unity has so many things that can create lots of layers. Here's a quick list of supplies:

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you've found some inspiration. Make sure to post any cards you make using these ideas on the Facebook {Show & Tell} page.

Until next time... have a Crafty Weekend!
