Gelli Cards and Twinkling H2Os

Last Saturday I went to a crop with some friends and decided that I would make cards (something I usually only do occasionally).  I had some Gelli prints with me and I had also just purchased my first Twinkling H2Os. 

The Gelli prints are always fun for me...whether creating new ones, or choosing ones I have on hand to use on a project.  I had a cute little stamp "I Love You Just The Way You Are" that I stamped onto some scrap Gelli prints and trimmed down.  I also cut a bunch of hearts out of some scraps in various colours ready to use as well. I stamped some black hearts onto this page and added a sticker doily.

On this one I added a white doily and wrapped the hearts in some turquoise twine and added some bling.

I still want to add some ribbon to this card.  I had some scrapbook paper that had the perfect colours in it to match this Gelli print.  Some more stamped hearts in black and some scribbled frames around the edges to finish it off (except for that ribbon I'm still looking for!)

Now on to the Twinkling H2Os...loved these! LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!  I purchased 5 different colours to start...can hardly wait to get some more.  Basically I just dragged my papers through the colours on my kraft mat and let them marble and drip.  On this first card, I added some teal rub-on flourishes and some bling...a few black dots around the flourishes, matted in black on white on teal and it was done! Easy Peasy and I love it!

The colours of this one are a bit more vibrant and I have to say this is my favourite background.  I used a script stamp over another H2O print and trimmed it down to provide another background for the face stamp (also stamped over a print made with H2Os).

I used the face stamp and script stamp on the same print this time, added some bling and mounted it on white, then teal, then a base of the scrapbook paper.  A green ribbon finished this card perfectly.

I haven't put any specific sentiments on these cards, and will decide what to use when I determine who/when I will give the card away...if I can bear to give any away that is LOL.

I'd love to hear which one is your favourite!


  1. OooOoohhh!! I love what you did here! I've been thinking of getting some twinkling paints but what stops me is that they are not water proof ... that scares me, but they are beautiful! (I love the bling as well!)

  2. Your cards are magnificent! So much to love here! You know I love your Gelli prints- and what you did with them makes me love them even more! And Twinks- so addictive! Thrilled you shared this with the party!
