Default Best web deal on Twinkling H2Os?

I generally like the .5 gram pots because you never know how much you might use a particular color.

Where have you seen the best deals (prices) on these? I know often they are sold as sets. So tricky to figure out which one you might like best. What do you think is the best set for Spring colors?

Thanks!

An enabler (over on the General Stamping forum) posted a thread about this online store having a liquidation sale -- they have those .5 gram jars for $1. Not sure if that's a deal. But shipping is not so cheap, so you may want to stock up on other things!

Hi,
Cornish Heritage Farms has them - the 24 packs of 5 gram pots are $38.99. The 12 packs are $19.99. You get free shipping for anything over $25 through April, then it is going up to free shipping after $35.

Frantic Stamper has the 24 packs for $38.00 and the 12 packs for $19.99. She charges shipping, but is very quick and great to work with. Those are the only places I have ordered them from.

Hope that helps!
Connie

I think Marcos Papers also sells them and I know they have great service.

This link should take you to the page on their site with the Twinkling H20s but I encourage you to look at the rest of their site too:

http://marcopaper.com/twinklingH2Os5gram.htm

And check out the H20 storage cases (I saw them in person a few years ago --- when I only had 6 small jars; wish I had them now and I hope to get them soon):

Hope to help and ...

Happy Crafting!

They are a sort of luminescent paint. They come in either half-gram or one-gram plastic jars, about the size of a jar of SU embossing powder. The paint is in a cake inside and you use a watercolor brush and paint your image with your chosen color. They are sparkly so that is the 'twinkle' part of the name. I like them for Christmas, for my Fairy Nice set, and I'd like to do some Spring painting on flowers, so I'm still trying to figure out what a good Spring color assortment might be . . .

Thanks for the tips on the places you've shopped ladies. I agree that I like both CHF and Frantic Stamper, I've shopped in both places myself.

My favorite green H20 is called Irish Mist (Guatalmalan is a very close second). I think either would be nice for stems and leaves. The H20s are now sold individually (as well as in assortments) so, that could be an option if the assortments don't have colors that work well for your needs.

HTH and ...

Happy Crafting!

Just a note that a good way to store them is in the document boxes from the Target Dollar Spot. I just take the lids off and put them in the box and am good to go

I store mine in a 5 x 7 acrylic box frame. I can see all the colors at a glance and it doesn't take up much room on my shelf.

Good tips ladies! And I'm glad to hear they're being sold separately now. There are a few colors from the last assortment I bought that I like better than others.

They fit very nicely in the Stamp and Supply boxes sold by SU (these also stack well, so the jars/pots can be stored flat; I use the longer box and have 3 completely filled with the small jars. The larger jars probably don't fit but I can't check.)
