For the Love of Grids

We're back today with some more cards using For the Love of Grids! Today, I gave each designer the challenge of using For the Love of Grids with one of Practicing Creativity's other stamp sets (not that hard since For the Love of Grids can truly go with anything).

I decided I would use Barefoot Summer along with For the Love of Grids. I also decided to make a scrapbook page rather than a card. It's really not hard at all to create your own 12x12 patterned paper with these stamps.


I used all three background sets. I also used our Turquoise Glimmer Mist to give it even more texture. It's hard to see in the pictures though.

Check out what the design team did:

 
 Dana got the challenge of using Look Up! Additions with For the Love of Grids. Isn't the result just stunning? Dana used all three grids and the sentiment and large balloon from Look Up! Additions.

 Karen  
  Karen  used The Whole Cycle and Chatterbox along with For the Love of Grids. Notice how she accented the dots? So cute!

 
 Valerie used a really creative use of the grid. Once she raised the flower out of the background, she colored in select squares to create a checkered effect. Valerie also used Nature's Wonder.

Tonight's the big night. For the Love of Grids will release at midnight eastern tonight! 

But before that I'd like to give away another set! I'd love to hear which Practicing Creativity stamp set you'd most like to use with For the Love of Grids!

Courtney this is by far my favorite set of yours. I would love to use it with any of your other sets but am drawn to For the Love of Dots and Everyday prints! Oh the possibilities!

So difficult to chose one stamp because the grid set would go with almost every stamp but I really like Karen's card :)

I totally have a card in my head with Look Up and the grids stamp set. Loving the peeks so far!

What great work ladies... I really need to ink up your Fall Fest set, so I think I'd have to come up with some crafty way to combine the two.

Valerie said...

Love this page Courtney - the color, the white space, how you used the grid for the background - love it all!!!

Amy said...

Hi Courtney! I would love to use For the Love of Grids with Look Up Additions....Dana has used it beautifully on her card today and it inspired me!! Love the hatch background!

Stacie (craft-princess) said...

Great job ladies! Which set to use with these grid backgrounds?? I would say the new carved love or look up additions set!

Laurel said...

I love the grids!! LOVE! I'd pair it with the Whole Cycle and Look up for sure! Thanks for the chance to win.

Laura.K said...

Wow. Your page is GORGEOUS. I love it.

And all the other cards are very beautiful.

This set can be used with every possible stamp, in any style, it's a MUST HAVE.

Ann said...

LOVE this page, Courtney!

Becky said...

I had to hop over here from Dana's blog because her card just blew me away! I love those grid backgrounds.

I think grids can easily be masculine, so I think I'd try pairing it with You're the Man!

Lisa Petrella said...

This set looks like so much fun!!! I'd LOVE to try it out with You're Dandy and The Whole Cycle!!

I think it would make a great background for all the sets, but probably Everyday Prints would be the one I'd use it with.

jen said...

What a fun page! The grids are looking great on everyone's samples!!! :D
I think I need to get the whole cycle inky- so that'd be my first stop!

These are all amazing examples of the new stamps! I love the tight knit looking grid and how nice the lo turned out with the diamond background.

WOW! Fabulous creations shared today! And to pick just one stamp set to go with the grid...I think ALL of them could! I love when that happens--makes your stamps and purchases worth every penny! LOVE IT:)
