How to Make an American Flag with Diamond Drops

Hello Everyone,
Karen joining you today to show you how to make an American Flag with Diamond Dew Drops. I used the flag to embellish a card but I think the flag would look great on a scrapbook layout as well. It is super easy to do so grab your Diamond Dew Drops and follow me.

 

Other Supplies:

Old Glory Diamond Dew Drops

liquid adhesive
red/white/blue card stock
card base (5×7″)
bracket die cut

Directions:
1. Assemble the design on a craft mat.  Place columns of red & white Diamond Dew Drops nine gems high. Alternate red and white to create stripes. Every 2-4 columns offset the placement of the gems to give the appearance of blowing/rippling fabric. Use blue Diamond Dew Drops to complete the upper left.


2. Apply liquid adhesive in a column on white card stock and move each gem into place. To align the columns precisely, place a ruler along the edge of the gems and press lightly.



(TIP – Alignment of the gems is critical in the creation of the image. What appears to be a minuscule gap will get increasingly more pronounced as the design expands. Be vigilant as you assemble each row to avoid frustration and disappointment later.)

3. Cut a bracket shape from white card stock. Matte the white bracket with blue card stock.  Attach red card stock to the front of a landscape card base leaving a narrow white frame.

4. When the glue has dried cut around the flag shape and adhere it inside the bracket.  Finally, adhere the embellishment centered on the card base.

How to Use Dew Drops to Decorate Cards

Hello Crafty Friends, 
Hope you all are doing well. Today I’m back again to inspire you guys with a fun project, It’s a pretty floral card with a striped background.
I used the sentiment ‘Be Who You Are’ to encourage people to accept the natural aspects of life, be courageous enough accept our own selves and never be afraid to be how we are! 
I have used the Robin’s Nest Dewdrops to make the card look more elegant.

The Blue Dress Mixed Media Collage

Hello, Kelly Parker here today showing a mixed media collage using Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!
I started with a piece of cardboard and gesso then used Cosmic Shimmer in three colors and dried it with a heat tool; then used Nuvo shimmer for more sparkle. Here’s a sneak peek!

 

 

I then decided on which Gecko Galz image I would use as a focal point and plotted out where this image would eventually be added to the collage. Using the TCW’s Pearl Modeling Paste and the TWC Sunflower Mandala stencil I added this to the collage a bit off-center making room for the image.  I then sprinkled some gold embossing powder on the mandala and heated it. This caused the modeling paste to bubble up, when this staged cooled down, I sprinkled more blue Cosmic Shimmer over the mandala and spritzed it with water.

Then I glued the image down and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink along the edges of the cardboard, using the TCW Art Is stencil to add some random words on the corners of the collage then rubbed in some of the TCW Gold Gesso along the edges. Blue Dew Drops were added to a section of the mandala near the image.

Hello, today I have a tutorial for a quick journal page. I used Distress Oxides, a rubber stamp, and of course, Dew Drops.
Dew Drops embellish your artwork so nicely. They almost always add that finishing touch.

 

Here is a list of supplies that I used to make this beautiful journal page.
  • Distress Oxides in Broken China, Picked Raspberry and Scattered Straw
  • a spray bottle with water
  • a rubber stamp (the one I used is from a Visible Image stamp set)
  • Adirondak Denim Ink
  • Dew Drops – Piano Tear Drops
  • embellishment glue
  • makeup sponge.

 

Step 1:
Use a makeup sponge to add and blend Distress Oxides.
Step 2: Spray lightly with water and dry.
 Step 3: Stamp your image.
Step 4: Arrange your Dew Drops and stick down with embellishment glue.

 

That’s all there is to it! I do hope you enjoyed the tutorial!

Make a Dew Drop embellished Pendant, encased in resin.

Hello all,

   

Take collage to a miniature level by encasing collage materials and dew drops in UV Clear Resin.  This technique creates a great effect of depth and texture to the finished piece.  Check out the step by step instructions shown below.

 

The Robins Nest Supplies:

Goldenberry Dew Drops

Kelly Green Dew Drops

Pool Dew Drops

Other Materials:

  • UV Clear Resin
  • UV Light
  • Paper scraps
  • Paper/fabric flowers
  • Lazer gem stars
  • Bead Landing Found Object.

Instructions:

1) Use scrap piece of mixed media paper for the background of the pendant.  Cut in a circle and adhere.

2) Lay down a few remnantx book print pieces over background and cover with another layer of resin.

 

3) Set the resin under a UV light per manufacturer’s instructions.



4) For the next layer add paper/fabric flowers and dew drops.

5) Cover with another layer of resin, adding a start prior to the resin being set.

 

6) Place under the UV light again (follow manufacturer’s instructions)

 

7) Now is it ready for a chain.

 

I really liked working with quick setting UV Resin for this project (rather then the standard air dry).  It made working with layer much easier.  I hope you enjoyed seeing another way to use dew drops, they are very fun and versatile.

Happy day!

How to Art Journal with Dew Drops and Win!!!!

Happy Saturday!  Today I want to share with you an art journal page idea, using dew drops.  I love the vintage, shabby grungy look, but dew drops can fit into all crafting styles from the most clean and simple to the most elaborate layering!  So grab a cup of coffee or tea, your art journal and join in.  Do your style and show us over on our Facebook Page.

Supplies:

Mixed media art journal
White Gesso
Vintage book pages and calendar pages
Chip board
White dimensional paste
Stencils
Mists – Shimmerz Sprayz
Chalk ink – Prima pink and green
Paper doll – Tim Holtz
Dew Drops – diamond and round
Distress Crayon – Tim Holtz

Begin playing!  First applying paper to your page as you like, the add Gesso over the pages.
This “knocks back” the lettering if you have something bold – like the calendar page, in my case.

Dry thoroughly and let the fun begin!  Next I added the chipboard doors….  And added gesso over them.  At this point this could go lots of ways; elegant, shabby chic, grungy, vintage, etc.

I had fun spraying with blued, purples and ultra violet.
When you have gesso down, you can tilt and move the colors around until they are mixed as you like.  There is no right or wrong in you are journal.  Just experimentation and capturing your mood.

Next I added dimensional paste and stenciling.

Let everything dry and then embellish as you like, you can always stop at any time and lay it aside if it feels it needs more or is overworked.
I added the rub ons and paper dolls at this step.  I had this planned out for other embellishments as you might guess from the hand position.  It needs a door knob!
I added an original round dew drop for the door knob, a smaller round to accent the heart on the door and then the diamonds to accent the words, all using liquid adhesive.  Finally I added some shadows using a distress crayon.
So how can you win?!?  I am putting together a art journaling kit.  Lots of ephemera and other good stuff including some dew drops!  I will post the kit on our Facebook page and you will have two weeks to show me your art journal pages with dew drops (all entries in by 7/3/2020 at 11:59 PM Pacific).  I will announce the winner on my 4th of July blog post.  Once you have sent me your address the kit will be yours!
Let’s brighten up this time with ART!

How to Make a Fabulous Fire Cracker Card

Hey There,
It’s Karen here…to share this quick and easy 4th of July card.  Tear Drops are perfect to create the sparkling firecracker flame.  It is so simple to add glitter glue to Tear Drops and totally transform them into twinkling gems.  I’ll warn you now…once you add glitter to Dew Drops, it may be hard to go back to plain solid ones!  Stand back….Snap, Crackle, & POP!

 

The Robin’s Nest

Directions:
1. Stamp a fire cracker image onto white card stock using black ink. Stamp or doodle a design to the barrel of each fire cracker. Carefully cut out the images.
2. Adhere blue paper to a card base and then adhere a row of fire crackers.

 

3. Next, use silver ink to stamp an explosion burst at the top of each alternating wick.

 

4. Adhere a Tear Drop to a glue dot to keep it steady while you apply gold glitter glue atop each Tear Drop gem. When the glitter glue is dry, attach the flame to the top of the fire cracker.

5.  Lastly, attach a row of Mini Pearl Dew Drops along the lower edge.

 

 

Other Supplies:
candle rubber stamps
black, red, blue, & silver ink pads
gold glitter glue
glue dots
dark blue patterned paper
card base 4×6″
