Cards with myStampBOX and Gelatos

I have had some gelatos lying around my craft room but have never really done anything with them. I decided to pull them out with some myStampBOX stamps and get messy.  All the cards started with this basic technique: rub the gelato on a nonstick mat, spray with water and blend with your finger, then rub the colors on cardstock with either my finger or by pulling the card through the color.

For the Hola card, I thought the background was too pastely, so I put a stencil over the cardstock and sprayed with some mist. I stamped “hola” with the Splash Me A Lot Set, then stamped the banner with the Mini Pennants Set. I finished off the card with a little washi tape along the banner and inked the edges of the cardstock.

For this card, I also used a stencil with some mist after applying gelatos to the cardstock. The “gracias” was stamped with Mini Alpha – Small Box Set , and “thanks” was stamped with Color Me – Sentiments Set. After stamping, I colored in the image with a similar colored marker.
gracias-thanks

Finally, on this card, I also clear embossed some flowers (from the Ornamental Flowers Set) before applying the gelatos.  I added some stamped flowers from the Ornamental Flowers Set and  Abundant Blossoms Set, and the sentiment from the Passport to Adventure Set and Funky Alphabet Set.
