Twinkling H2Os--Oh, My!

Okay, so today's card isn't the best design in the world (feels sort of squat and clunky to me--kind of like me, actually, after so many days of quarantine eating), but two things about this card send me over the moon: the Subtle Textile embossing folder and the Twinkling H2Os, which I'd practically forgotten about. 

I randomly splodged three shades of Twinklings (two greens and a blue) onto a piece of watercolor paper and let them dry. The branch is a die from the Forever Fern bundle from StampinUp. 

Check out that shimmer!


The Subtle Textile embossing folder makes the perfect, subtle (surprise!) backdrop, and I am so looking forward to playing with it more. 

If you, like I, have a half-forgotten stash of Twinkling H2Os (or similar shimmery watercolor), you might enjoy, as I have, taking them out and playing with them again. They really are swoon-worthy. 

Mercy, grace, peace, love, and kindness,


  1. Your Twinkling H20's remind me of my stash of Radiant Pearls which I haven't used in forever! Love your subtle texture background...who makes the embossing folder? Would love to find one with linen type embossing.

  2. I agree, the Subtle Textile embossing folder from Stampin' Up is a perfect background. I was waiting to see if it really fit in your Cuttlebug and will add it to my own wishlist. Loving your watercolored die cuts too.

  3. Love that embossing folder - is that a newer Stampin' Up product? I am unfamiliar with Twinkling H20's - they are beautiful. I will have to keep my eye out for them.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
