How to use Dew Drops on a Little Boy Layout

Hey Ladies,
Dew Drops are the perfect finishing touch for ANY layout. Yes, really ANY layout! I wanted to capture the adventurous spirit of my nephew and I loved the photos that his mother captured of him contemplating how to proceed climbing this tree. A random scattering of confetti like Dew Drops were just what it needed. So ladies, even more masculine projects can be embellished with Dew Drops, they are not just for us girls.
Come on an adventure with me!

Directions:
1. Trim 1/4 inch from 2 sides of 12×12″ background paper. Attach it to the middle of a 12×12″ allowing for a narrow edge. I selected a patterned edge matting and a solid center paper.

2. Add a chipboard frame around the feature photo. Then begin to arrange your photos with some matting layers in contrasting colors. Do not yet attach anything to the background just practice the placement.

3. Die cut some harlequin patterns on black card stock and add them underneath the corners of the photos allowing them to be partially visible.  Embellish the left corner of the framed photo with a cluster.

4. Add a large title near the top edge of the layout. Photograph the layout and remove all the items from the layout.
(TIP: Because I never glue anything to the background paper until I am completely finished designing the page, I will photograph a layout when I have to move elements to get access to the background paper. Then I use the photo as a guide to help me re-construct the layout. I can now confidently attach the items with perfect placement. This step will help you avoid the frustration and prevents the disappointment of not being able to remember exactly how the layout was arranged.)

5. Select various stamps to compliment your photo. I added three prominent quotes that needed to be visible. Next, I planned where to add a few patterns to the background. Those images could be partially behind photos as these embellishments would be of secondary importance. This is just a way to add another layer and create more depth by adding some subtle designs within the background. I stamped the most important images with black ink and the secondary images with blue ink to give a watermark effect on the purple paper.  (TIP: if you are uncertain about where to place the stamped images, I suggest first stamping the images on scrap paper and loosely cutting them out to practice with placement. I also made sure to test the ink on the background paper in a place that would be underneath the photos.)

6. Add a confetti like scattering of Black Dew Drops & Obsidian Diamond Dew Drops to the layout.

Supplies:2 photos 4×6″
scrapbook paper 12×12
black card stock
chipboard frame
black & blue ink pads
rubber stamps: sentiments, denim pocket, sun rays, hand prints
harlequin die
denim chipboard alphabet
dragonfly embellishments
liquid adhesive

Collage Necklace with Dew Drops

Hello, so glad you stopped by today! Kelly Parker on the blog with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops, I love these delicate glass drops that can be used on any surface and they come in all kinds of colors! I created a necklace with collage images from Gecko Galz and Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.

 

I started off by gluing down a script collage paper and then used distress oxides to soften the edges, then added the image. After everything was dry, I drilled the hole, added the jump rings and cord, then added the Dew Drops.

Here’s a close up of the necklace.

Collaged Lapel Pins

Hello! Kelly Parker on the blog today with another project for Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.  I love adding these little bits of color to all my projects. They come in all colors and can be glued on with most any kind of glue that dries clear.

To make these pins, I glued down some script collage paper, then an image. I then used distress ink along the edges to soften them and add some color. After everything was dry, I added the Dew Drops and then the pin back. These pins are quick and easy but make wonderful gifts!

Hello,  welcome to another tutorial. My post today is inspired by Valentine’s Day which is coming up next month. I love using a holiday as an excuse to design something new!

Give Them a Permanent Conversation Heart with Dew Drops

It’s hard to believe it’s time to begin thinking about what to do for Valentine’s Day.  I have a wonderful idea, that requires a little planning and a bit of patience to execute, to share with you today.  This project will take and hour to prepare and 24 hours to complete.

Materials:



Dew Drops, I particularly love how the mix of black white and red came out
Prima extra fine glitter
Heart shaped mold – I selected one from Wilton brand
Plastic cups with graded measurements 8oz disposable plastic cups for paint and epoxy mixing
Wooden mixing sticks
Art n’ Glow Clear Casting and Coating Epoxy Resin – 16 ounce kit
Reynolds non-stick foil
Torch or heat gun

Steps:

1.  Prepare everything you need on your work table.  I recommend covering your table with butcher paper in case of spills.  The epoxy hardens everywhere!

2.  In separate cups put equal amounts of epoxy resin and hardener.  I used six ounces of each.

3.  Mix resin and hardener as directed with a wooden mixing stick in a third plastic cup. Once the resin is thoroughly mixed you will have about 40 minutes to work with it before it begins hardening.

4.  Pour resin mixture into prepared forms

 

5. Add dew drops in your favorite color and add glitter as desired.

6.  Heat with torch or heat gun to remove bubbles

7.  Cover with foil and leave to dry in a flat place for 24 hours, this allows the resin to cure and harden.  After 24 hours you can unmold your hearts!  If you wish you can add rub ons on the back in your favorite words, or just keep them plain and display them!

Hope you have a great time making this little token of Valentine love!

How to Make an Amazing Gumball Machine Embellishment

Welcome,
It’s Karen here. I hope you are ready to make an amazing gumball machine embellishment. This would even look great on a scrapbook layout. Dew Drops come in every color and are perfect gumballs. I didn’t have a gumball machine rubber stamp or die so I made my own. It is super easy! Let’s get going!

Supplies:

Directions:
1. Stamp a circle with black ink onto white cardstock. I actually used an ornament stamp for the gumball globe.  Alternatively, use a circle punch to cut a 2.5″ circle.

2. Cut two rectangles from red card stock for the base and top of the gumball machine. Add a narrow red strip along the base, a knob, and a dispenser. Use a black marker to create the appearance of the tunnel where the gum would exit. Assemble the pieces.

3. Select primary color Dew Drops and adhere them to the gumball machine. Take care when assembling them so that each gumball rests naturally in the valley that is created by the two beneath it. This will give an authentic and natural appearance rather than trying to create neat and precise rows. Set aside to thoroughly dry.

4. Use a polka dot embossing folder to add texture to white card stock.

5. Stamp a sentiment in the upper portion using black ink. Trim it and attach it to a red card base leaving a narrow 1″ red border on the right side.

6. Attach the gumball machine to the lower right corner overlapping the edge.

7. Use liquid adhesive to add a gumball in the dispenser, as well as, some loose gumballs near the base.

Other Supplies:

red card base (5×7″)
card stock (white & red)
black marker
black ink pad
circle & sentiment stamp
polka dot embossing folder
liquid adhesive
