Create a Card – June 17, 2015

Hi all;

I had more free time than normal this past weekend – a reprieve from kids activities … it was strange and relaxing at the same time.  So what’s a girl to do with a few free hours on a Saturday afternoon … make cards of course!











So this technique is an old one using Gelatos but the beauty of this look is you can create it with any number of water color type products: Distress Markers, watercolor paints, Gelatos, Twinkling H2Os, Distress Ink, Aquacolor Crayons, Intense Pencils … and more I’m sure.

Here are the supplies I used:











  • My Favourite Things Stamp set
  • Zing Black Embossing Powder
  • Gelatos
  • Scor-Tape
  • Versamark Ink
  • Heat Gun (not shown)
  • Acrylic Block
  • baby wipe (not shown)
  • Neenah White card stock
  • water color paper


  1. Cut A2 card base from Neenah White Cardstock
  2. Cut card panel from water color paper
  3. Black heat emboss stamped sentiment
  4. choose your 3 colors of gelato and scribble them onto the image
  5. Use baby wipe to rub the color pigment and smooth out the color
  6. blend into the next color *I switched spots on the wipe occasionally so color didn’t get too muddy
  7. Adhere panel to card base


Happy Stamping.
