Hello, crafty friends! We got a large dumping of snow here in Colorado Friday evening, so I was in need of some cheery cards this weekend. And what could be more cheery than rainbow colors? 

Given that it was the end of the week, I was also not in the mood to color. Do you ever feel that way? Coloring is definitely one of the more intimidating things to me when it comes to card making. You know those card makers who do “no-line” coloring? Well, I call this technique “no coloring,” and I can assure you that it has to be as equally satisfying! 

As always, I used products from several different companies for my cards. But the one thing that each card has in common is my very favorite patterned paper pad, which is JJ’s Rainbows Paper Pad from Waffle Flower. And would any of my blog posts be complete without a retired MFT stamp? Gah!

All of the cards were quite easy to put together. I did do partial die cutting for Card #2, which is about as fancy as I got.

  1. What wonderful cards! I found you on the Ukraine auction on instagram and had to see more of your work. Bonus: somehow I missed blanket stitched dies, so used your link to buy them. Thanks for the enabling. I think?
