  1. Beautiful!! I bought the 24 set, too, and ordered some extras. You make it look so easy. I tried them on that same watercolor paper with a waterbrush and did not get the same results. The color did not move very well at all. More practice is in order, I guess.

  2. Beautiful, cheery card, Laura! I have this grid stamp but haven’t used it much, love how you made it the focal point of your card here. And I also bought the 24 pack of Zig and thought the exact same thing as you, why didn’t I get the 60?!! Probably because I couldn’t afford to lol! But I’ll get just the colors I love the most individually too 🙂

  3. LOVE your card and LOVE watching and listening to your videos! You are such a joy and talent! And you may have finally pushed me over the edge to order those markers. LOL!


  4. Hoe can something so simple as a grid pattern be so beautiful? With watercolor of course! And the talent and imagination of the lovely Laura.

  37. Love how the watercolors pool against the embossed background, lighter at the top of each square and darker at the bottom….gives the card background great texture. As always…your cards are so pretty Laura!

  38. Oh, my goodness! How can you take such a simple stamp and elevate it to such beautiful new heights? This is stunning.

  39. Oh Miss Laura, I love watching your videos! You are so entertaining and super talented! I love the ombré color wash on the sentiment die! I will definitely be incorporating that on a card, and cutting sequins and using thread and so on and so on!! Thanks for sharing!

  44. Couldn’t wait to watch your video to see how you made this card. I just love it and thanks to you I think I’ll be able to pull it off too! Thanks Much!

  45. Laura, love your happy, colorful, rainbow-y card! It’s a perfect birthday card. I also like the pop of contrast with the black greeting strip–perfect! Thanks so much for sharing your trick of the trade about cutting sequins, too! 🙂 ~ Andrea

  46. I’m so inspired by your card! I totally want to buy these markers now and play with them. I’m always in awe of your beautiful and creative cards. Thanks so much for sharing.

  47. I’ve probably seen 10 videos with people using the Zig Clean Color markers and in each video, the person only bought a smaller set thinking that they wouldn’t need any more than that. When they tried them, they had to have them all!!! I haven’t gotten any yet—maybe Christmas! But I’ll learn from the rest of you and get the biggest set available!! Beautiful card Laura!! Thanks for sharing!!

  48. Everything you do is stunning! I could pin every card… gorgeous rainbow card.
    Like everyone else, I’ve been seeing the new Zig Clean Color markers being used, and they seem perfect, but the truth is I already have watercolor mediums that will allow me to paint for the next 20 years or so. Conclusion, the Zig markers still look like they really worth it :).

  49. Oh.My.Word. This is phenomenal. I love what you’ve done with the tiled stamp and your watercolors. I just subscribed because I’ve heard your name so long!!! I’ll be back to watch your video asap ♥

  50. My Zig 24 set and that exact background stamp just arrived – I know what card I’ll be trying out this weekend – thanks for the inspiration, Laura!

  51. Gorgeous Laura. I really need to get these pens! Oh dear – you’ve made me just go order a 24 set!

  52. Thank you so much for such a beautiful, but not-out-of-reach card idea. I love that you nailed it with the ‘best of both–neat and tidy + loose and messy,’ and I really like the little extra pop of the silver thread. Well done!

  53. This is such a pretty card! I just started using those watercolor pens and like them, too! Thanks for the tutorial

  54. I can’t praise your cards and videos enough Laura!
    You have me in stitches laughing at your talk-over every time and your cards are simply jaw-droppingly stunning every time. Inspired fan!

  55. So love this technique and the colors are beautiful on this card…so bright and cheery…love it!!!

  56. always stunning if I see you using this grid Stamp and adorable coloring with watercolor ZIG Pen
    I dont have that only my kuretake ganzai tambi
    maybe will try to use it and mimic your card Laura
    this is adorable love love
    hugs, Monika

  57. Love the card and your fun video. I’m trying not to buy more water colors since I have 2 sets of watercolors and water colors in tubes and water color pencils, etc…not bragging…just saying I don’t need the markers, but I love the look of them. Dilemma! 🙂

  58. Yep! That’s a beauty! Those markers are on my wish list, too! I like the way you used the grid background stamp as well. Thanks for sharing!

  59. Not only do I love the techniques you used and the way the card come out, but I love your enthusiasm and sense of humor. It’s always a pleasure to see your creations and videos.

  60. Great card and video. The silver thread and sequins really finished the card beautifully. Thanks for sharing. There were a couple of tips in the video that will be very helpful.

  61. Love your card, so pretty. I always enjoy watching your video, hope you have more videos coming up.

  62. Your card is soooo pretty. Thanks for sharing.
    Crafty hugs,

  63. I’m loving these Zig brush markers. Your rainbow colors are bright and happy, as usual. Thanks for the video…that’s always appreciated!

  64. That is a beautiful card. I loved the technique you used to spread and lighten the color blocks.
    I would never have thought of cutting that sequin as you did. Great work.

  65. I love the graphic look of the grid and the
    watercolor look from the markers. I haven’t
    tried these yet, but they look really tempting!

  66. Love your card… As usual 🙂 when I first saw these markets I dismissed them. Telling myself I did NOT need another watercolor medium. But now I think o rely do have to have them. 😉

  67. OMG!! I love your work and your videos are always so entertaining as well as informative. Your cards always stand out from the crowd. Many thanks from Australia.
