Christmas Tags with Dew Drops

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
First, I would like to wish you a merry Christmas and happy holidays. Thank you for your visits, here are my last projects of the year and also the end of my DT with The Robin’s Nest.
So, I made 2 Christmas and winter tags for you with some beautiful colors and Dew Drops.

 

How to do

 

I cut my tag in watercolor paper and tinted with Distress ink.

 

I used a snoflakes stencil with some blue Distress Ink.

 

 

I added some water on it with a spray.

  

      

I stamped my snow man on the tag and on a watercolor paper. I colored it with watercolor paints. Then, I cut it.

 

 

To finish, I adhered my stamp with some squares of foam and stamped, cut and stuck my title on the top.

 

 

This is the result with a beautiful ribbon and pink Dew Drops.


 

 

 

 

I made another one with a Christmas tree!

Knotty or Nice CAS Card

Hello Crafters,
It’s Karen here to share a little Christmas inspiration.  This is a great card to make for that last minute function because it is super quick.  CAS is best if you plan to give handmade cards for the holiday season and have a long list of family and friends.  This is a good design to mass produce efficiently and requires relatively few supplies.   Let’s get stamping!

Directions:
1.  Use black ink to stamp a random collage of swirls & flourishes onto a white card base. Make sure to rotate the stamp and overlap the edges with the design. If you plan to include a sentiment, make sure you leave some empty space for it. 

2. Stamp the sentiment with black ink. Set aside to dry.

3. Next, plan the placement of the Tear Drops (aka light bulbs) evenly spaced along different sides of the swirls. This is a temporarily step for placement only so no glue is used at this time. When you are satisfied with their positions, mark each light socket lightly with a pencil. Next, carefully remove the Tear Drops and use a fine tip black marker to draw a small rectangular socket where you left each pencil mark. Sketch them extending on one side of the wire only. Also, tilt them and vary the angle of the sockets for a more realistic appearance.

4.  Add Tear Drops in primary colors to the sockets with liquid adhesive.  To finish off, draw plugs at the ends of the strings of lights.


(TIP: Attach some Tear Drops away from the flourish to appear as loose spare bulbs.  Use a silver gel pen to draw the metal base of the light bulb.)




Supplies:
white card base
black ink pad
flourish stamps
sentiment stamps
fine tip black marker
liquid adhesive

Cute last minute box modifications with Dew Drops

Can you believe it’s almost Christmas?  I am way behind on my wrapping.  I was thinking of some cute ways to quickly modify gift card boxes and wanted to share one with you.

I hope you’re not as far behind as I am in wrapping gifts.  Somehow Christmas snuck up on my this year.  I was trying to think of fast and cute ways to modify gift boxes.  I saw this cute wooden patterned box with a plain burlap bow and was inspired to try a quick alteration to make it a little fancier!
Here is all you need, your plain gift box with a burlap bow, liquid adhesive and diamond dew drops in red and green.  It would be equally cute with the same idea using red and green teardrops for a softer star.  I always add the glue to the back of the dew drops and then attach.  It seems to work easier for me in terms of placement accuracy that way!  And I always lay my design out on the work surface before I start, like the photo below!

I hope you enjoyed this super quick and cute box modification using Dew Drops!  See you next year! Have a happy holiday season spent with those you love!

How to Create Faux Jingle Bells

How to Create Faux Jingle Bells

Hello Crafters,
It’s Karen here to share a little Christmas inspiration.  Let me show you how I turned gold Dew Drops into jingle bells.  It is a simple step but it does require a steady hand.  I used a permanent black marker to add small details to the Dew Drops.  By adding a simple slightly curved “v” shape on one end, you create the faux jingle bell.  The good news is that they are much easier to glue to a project and won’t add the thickness & weight of a real bell.  Sadly, they don’t jingle.  Let’s get going!


Supplies:

black fine tip permanent marker
liquid adhesive
glitter card base
metal die reindeer
mini bow

Directions:
1. Use white card stock to cut out a reindeer embellishment with your die cutting machine.

2. Adhere it to the center of a square card base.

3. Use a black fine tip permanent marker to draw a “v” shape on the bottom of a gold Dew Drop. The line should be slightly curved so that will accentuate the dimension of the dome. Continue the process to create more bells.

4. Adhere the faux jingle bells to the reindeer’s antlers with liquid adhesive.

5. Attach a gold bow to the reindeer and embellish it in the center with a final bell.
