Modern Grid Technique Video and Snowflake Showcase Sneak Peek!



Hi Friends! I've been looking forward to sharing today's technique with you! A couple of month's ago I saw a wonderful card created by my friend Beth Norman-Roberts, which you can see here. I knew instantly that I had to give the technique she used a try. It's called the "Modern Grid Technique" and sure enough, I was hooked with my first card:


I love the bright colours on this card!

For my second card I used "All the Good Things" stamp set with Watercolour Pencils.


And here's the card I created for today's video:

I'm must say, I'm quite pleased with how this card turned out, especially as I literally designed it on the fly during the video! LOL 




Supply List:

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE 
Sneak Peek

 Next month Stampin' Up! will be releasing some GORGEOUS new holiday products! These items will be exclusive, available while supplies last and only during the month of November. As demonstrators, we're able to pre-order new products a month early so that we can try them out and create with them. Well, holey moley, do I ever LOVE the "Snowflake Showcase"! Here's a sneak peek of a couple of cards I made, using today's "Modern Grid Technique" and the new "Happiness Surrounds" and "Snow is Glistening" stamp sets:


I embossed the snowflakes in gold and silver and then added inks with my aqua painter. See that gorgeous new Snowflake Trinket?! That's a part of the "Snowflake Showcase" too!

I used Brusho on the Whisper White card stock and then set with my heat tool to dry. Then I stamped the snowflakes and embossed in white. I also used the Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker for the grid lines, instead of black. Finished the card by spritzing with Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint - it's super sparkly in real life!

Customers will be able to purchase the "Snowflake Showcase" 
products beginning November 1st. 

Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set
Snow is Glistening Stamp Set
