Introducing Modern Basics Day Three

It's the third day of the Papertrey Ink Countdown and I hope you are enjoying everything so far.
Today I bring you yet another introduction to Modern Basics (which is available for purchase on March 15th through Papertrey Ink). My focus this time around was to think outside of the box and show a little more versatility using Modern Basics.

First up, a sample turning a few images into a modern flower and leaves card... I combined the solid & linear squares with the solid rectangle. Then paired Modern Basics with a modern flower from All About You.
Stamped the squares and rectangles randomly onto a white card base (in New Leaf), like so. Then I stamped the sentiment, also from Modern Basics, in True Black.
The flower was inked using the Rock & Roll technique, inked first in Raspberry Fizz and then rolled the edges in Pure Poppy. Stamped it onto a punched circle, attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive and them embellished with a button and twine.
Next, I turned the leaf trios (that I shared with you yesterday) into flowers. I started by stamping a few stems using the stem images from Green Thumb. Topped two stems with the solid leaf trio image, in Plum Pudding. I then stamped the polka dot square four times, also in Plum Pudding, to create the larger flower.
Embellished the flower centers with Harvest Gold buttons and white embroidery floss. Stamped a few leaves using the smallest square and a sentiment, both included in Modern Basics. At the base of the card I used a border image from Modern Basics, one you haven't seen yet. I stamped, in Ripe Avocado, the border image repeatedly in opposite directions and then rounded the bottom corners. Finished the card of with some Ripe Avocado satin ribbon.
Finally, for this simple creation I combined Modern Basics with a sentiment from another new set called Think Big Favorites #2.
Stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate onto a Rustic Cream card base. Stamped, in Ripe Avocado, the small leaf trios at the embellished end of the sentiment and the large leaf trio in the sentiment corner. Embellished with rhinestones and finished the card off with Fine Linen satin ribbon.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed this look at additional uses for the images included in Modern Basics. That's all that I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed! Again, I'd love to know what you think.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the happenings for today. These ladies have much more to share with you too...

Thanks for dropping by today, have a super one!
