SSS Laura's Grid Backgrounds & SSS December Card Kit Winner

Hi everyone!

I'm popping by today to share a set of cards I made using Laura Bassen's brilliantly designed grid-related products. She designed these for Simon Says Stamp. I had SO much fun playing with these products to create my own backgrounds. Backgrounds are my favourite stamps to work with and I was totally in my element coming up with my own background designs.

For the card with the circles, I stamped the Grid Play Background with Simon's Barely Beige Ink on Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock and used Simon's White Pigment Ink to stamp the circles. All the other backgrounds were stamped using only Simon's White Pigment Ink. The additional stamp sets used to create the backgrounds were Simon's Grid Play Clear Stamps for the cards with the blue, orange, and red backgrounds, and Simon's Live Well Stamp Set for the card with the green background. Once the ink was dry, I coloured the images with Prismacolor Pencils. I matted the stamped panels with Neenah White Cardstock before adding them to backgrounds with coordinating colours. The white heat embossed greetings were stamped with a sentiment from Simon's Brush Stroke Messages and the cards were finished off with various enamel shapes.

Before I go, the winner of the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit is...
