After cutting and scoring the Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock to make an A2 card, I cut the Bazzill Two Scoops textured cardstock to measure 4"x 5.25".  For a clean cut, I recommend using an x acto knife.  To bring out the design in this paper, lightly sand it with a sanding tool.  Next, I cut a piece of white cardstock (4.25" x 2")  for my design block. Since I would be using water with Twinkling H2Os to color in my design, I used black StazOn ink for my flower and sentiment. The border stamp (which I love because it reminds me of washi-tape) was stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

This was my first time working with Twinkling H2Os and I am hooked. I found this product very easy to work with and the results were incredible! After spritzing the pot of Twinkling H2O with a little water, I also spritzed my brush. I painted my image with the damp brush to precondition the paper before painting on the color. To get a two-toned effect on the larger flower, I went over some of the leaves a second time.  Next, I used a Spica pen to add some turquoise highlights to the leaves. I adhered the ribbon to the white cardstock using Scor-tape and then added foam dimensional adhesive plus more Scor-tape to adhere the piece securely to my card. 

I added a piece of white card stock to the inside of my card for a hand-written note and stamped it with the Washi Stamp for extra detail.


Great Job Linda!  Love the use of the H20's!


  1. Beautiful card - I love the coloring on the flowers.

  2. Pretty flowers and lovely color combo and design. I have lots of Twinkling H2o's which I thought had been retired. I should bring them back out for a little fun. An inspiring card!

  3. Such a pretty card!! Love the colors and the way you did the flowers
