Beauty Abounds with Modern Grid

Do you recall that a few weeks ago I showed you a card I made using a technique called Modern Grid? (See it here.)  It’s pretty cool. I’ve been working on other cards using this same technique and want to show you one of those cards today. I also have a video tutorial for you. The stamp set, Beauty Abounds is from the Occasions catalog and a perfect set for this technique.

Design Notes for Beauty Abounds Card:

Well, for some reason, known by no one, I used a different stamp set in the video. However, the technique I used on today’s card is the same as I demonstrate in the video. For today’s card, I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the butterflies.

Incredible Like You for Blog Highlights

It’s that time again, Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. I love seeing all the terrific cards made by demonstrators from all over the world! The theme this month is encouragement. Aren’t there lots of times when someone needs a little encouragement? I think so. Sometimes our friends or family just don’t know how wonderful they are! This month I made a special card for someone special to remind her about how terrific she is. The Incredible Like You stamp set was just the ticket!

Design Notes for Incredible Like You Card:

I tried a new technique for this card. Did you notice? It’s called Modern Grid Technique. I saw it on another demonstrator’s website (Tinz Zinck). It’s deceptively easy! I’m going to write up a tutorial later this week and will share it with you.

I love this color combination. The Flirty Flamingo seems to go with so many colors but I think it really pops with the Coastal Cabana and Mossy Meadow. You should try it!

The flowers seem to have so much dimension. That’s easy to accomplish with the two step stamps.

There are two flower stamps in the set that go together. Stamp one, then stamp the other. I know it looks like two different shades but I used the Flirty Flamingo ink with both stamps. Also, it doesn’t matter which one you stamp first. Just line them up. (Easy to do with photopolymer stamps!)
