No Stamps


No stamps?  No problem.  There are so many wonderful dies out there right now that make it easy to create a card without even a stamped sentiment.  I used the awesome "hello" die from Papertrey's Wonderful Words series.



I was playing around with some Distress Markers I recently bought.  I dipped the tips in water quickly and then scribbled on some watercolor paper.  Once that was done and looked like a hot mess, I cut it into little rectangles and mounted a few on the strip of black card stock.  Ahhh, that looked much better to me.  Finished off with the "hello" die cut.  Quick and easy!

This is so pretty--and I love how you cut up the colored paper, and then put it back together. Those distress markers look like great fun.
