Lovely! I ordered a set of 12 of the Zig… and I think I’m regretting not going bigger! Love the card!
You make it all seem so easy! Love your cheerful card with the colorful grid. Thanks.
This is beautiful!!!
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.
Super cute! Love those bright colors.
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 🙂
Gorgeous card. I love the new zig markers.
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!
Wowza! Love your card and thanks for the video!! Great job!
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.
Thanks for showing the clear sequins in various sizes. Definitely need those.
Your card is so pretty! Love the colors. As someone else said you make it look so easy.

You wondered whether to call this card “fancy” in the beginning of your video tutorial…and yes!…it is oh! so fancy and made me smile from ear-to-ear! Thank you bunches for making the video, too —it was quite helpful seeing your awesome paper crafting skills and products used in action!
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!
Love the design of the water color tiles!
Your cards always inspire me.
Oh, my goodness! How can you take such a simple stamp and elevate it to such beautiful new heights? This is stunning.
Beautiful! I have a set of these markers. I better get them out and try ’em. I KNOW! What’s wrong with me! LOL
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!
this is a beautiful card.. love the background stamp… love this..
Cute card. As usual, love your video! 🙂
Who loves you, baby Laura Fadora? Me do! Don’t tell the others, but you know I think no one watercolors as brilliantly as you do! This is genius proof right here!! Hugs, Darnell

When I first saw this I thought it was way too complicated for me, but then I watched the video. WOW, you sure made that look easy! Definitely something I’m going to have to try! TFS!
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!
Just stunning!! Love it!!
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
So simple, but so striking!
Beautiful–love how you used this grid background and the ombre greeting.
This is SUCH a cool card! Thanks for the inspiration!!
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.
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!!
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 :).
Another gorgeous card. Great video.
Love your card!
A lovely background!
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 ♥
Such a gorgeous card!
What a great card! Love the colours you’ve used!
I love this watercolour grid card!
Oh every time I see someone use those brushes it makes me want to get them! This is beautiful!
luv how you used those zigs!
I love this card. That grid is really nice & the gold thread…love it.
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!
Gorgeous Laura. I really need to get these pens! Oh dear – you’ve made me just go order a 24 set!
As ALWAYS, amazing card! Love the colors and your fun commentary!
So awesome! Need to get my hands on these pens. 😀
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!
Oh, this is so pretty. I just got these pens and I’m so excited to use them. I like this grid a lot.
This is such a pretty card! I just started using those watercolor pens and like them, too! Thanks for the tutorial
Have the pens (sadly the 24 as well), have the paper – heading to my craft space…..
