10 minute card with dewdrop!

Hello crafty buddies!

 

Srabonti Sandha here from Tale of quilling with my newest card idea.

Lately I have been thinking about executing some feel-good card ideas, like they are suitable for any situations. Those can be given to family, friends, well wishers or whoever you want. And surprisingly it will take only 10 minutes to make it happen! Cool! Isn’t it? So why waste time!! let’s get going….

Materials you need:

1.  Pattern card stock / card paper
2.  Sticker with sentiment
3. Foam tape
4. Dew drops
5. Glue

 process:

1. At the beginning,  take the card and the peaceful sticker. Take a foam tape and attach a small piece at the back of the sticker.

2.Place the sticker on the top of the card. Foam tape creates a popup look here.

3. Take some pink dewdrops and glue them  on the pink border as you like.

4. Now take some water dewdrops or purple dewdrops and glue them with the pink drops respectively.

 

5. I’m sure you have created something extraordinary just like that! Congratulations! Now you have your very quick creative card in your hand!
I hope you like this project.  Best wishes from me.  Lots of love and hugs for you 🥰🥰🌼

I Love You

Hello Crafty People!

This is a relatively easy card, and quick, except for the drying time needed.

Supplies:
Artsy I love you Canvas  by Robin’s Nest
Dew Drops by Robin’s Nest
Ink Spritzers: Cream Metallic (Maya Mist) by Maya’s Road, Cranberry Color Wash by Ranger Ink, black marker-scroll and brush by ZIG, spray sealant, adhesives.
Instructions: 
1. Spritz the Artsy Canvas with Cream Metallic mist, let dry.
2. Cut a heart from a piece of plain white paper or a scrap, place over canvas and spritz with Cranberry Color Wash.  Pat away some of the cranberry with a clean dry cloth. Let dry.
3. Spray with a light coat of sealant of your choice. Let dry.
4. Glue Due drops around the outline of the heart shape and dot your “I” with a tear dew drop.

How to Make a Simple Frame with Dew Drops

Hey Girls,
It’s Karen on the blog today and I want to show you how easy it is to make a simple frame with Dew Drops. It looks very elegant to embellish the feature element of a card with an extra special frame instead of just matting the image.  Sadly, this card is my last project for 2020 but I will be back in the New Year with more ideas.  Happy Crafting in 2021!

Other Supplies:
ink pads (mint green & pink)
rubber stamps (sentiment & heart)
green card stock
silver card base (5×7″)
embossing folder & die cutting machine
liquid adhesive
ribbon / heart shaped gem / lace

Directions:
1. Stamp a sentiment onto white card stock using mint green ink. With pink ink, stamp a heart overlapping the sentiment.

2.   Matte the stamped sentiment with foam tape onto mint green card stock. Emboss a silver card base with a dotty flourish design and adhere the sentiment to the top section of the card base.

3. To practice the placement, temporarily place the Dew Drops around the outer edge of the sentiment. Begin arranging them at a corner in order to create a neat & well balanced frame. Align the Dew Drops side by side by and adhere them with liquid adhesive.
4. Finally, embellish with a small bow, a heart shaped gem, & a lace border.

Magnetic Frames and Dew Drops

Hello, Kelly here, hope you have a happy holiday! I am on the eve of Christmas and looking forward to spending time with family. Today, I have some quick and easy magnetic frames to hold all those special memories that are made this time of year.

Supplies –

Magnetic frames
Glue
These frames were fun to make, I used the coordinating color of Dew Drops to the frame, I started to glue them on and would do about 3 dew drops at a time then work on the other frame. This would allow the glue to set a bit before I added more along the edge. The frames look so much better! I love the Dew Drops on them. These will be put on my fridge with pictures of my kids after the holidays!

 

 

 

Hope you try blinging up some of the items around your house using Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!
This is my last post for Robin’s Nest, but I will be using Dew Drops on many projects to come, stayed tuned!

Supplies used:

Pipe cleaner

Silver paper or Card stock

Christmas Card

Embellishment

Step one: begin by mounting the silver paper onto the card. Now bend the pipe cleaner in the shape of a tree and glue in place. Set a book on this and allow it to dry.
Step two: arrange glue drops at the top of the tree, sticking in place with embellishment glue. Stamp and mount your sentiment and stick that in place also.

That’s it! You have a beautiful Christmas card.

How to Set Up an Easy Craft Table for a Children’s Party

Hello and welcome! Shelly with you today sharing how to create an easy and fun craft table for a kid’s party!

 

I recently hosted a craft table for a party of 8 year olds (11 of them!).  It was crazy, chaotic and a total blast!  Make it easy on yourself, “kit” your projects and provide Dew Drops – perfect for any craft project and easy for little hands and fingers to pick up and apply!
The party was Barbie themed, but it is also close to Christmas, so I did a combination Barbie/Christmas ornament craft.
Let’s start by looking at my table set up:

 

GATHER:

Supplies:

  • Flat wood ornaments (Amazon)
  • Twine for hanging
  • Paint (to make a base color)
  • Dew Drops of all shapes/sizes
  • sequins
  • Die Cuts
  • Colored Markers
  • Clear Drying Glue (buy 1oz bottles from Dollar Store – 1 bottle for every 2-3 kids!)
  • Cheap Paper Plates
  • Cup Cake Liners
  • Clear Treat Bags

Optional:

  • Stencils
  • Inks
  • Pom Poms
  • Glitter Glue

SET UP:

  • Flat wood ornaments purchased from Amazon were given a base color of pink or white.
  • The birthday party had a Barbie theme – so I wanted to incorporate a Barbie themed Christmas ornament and created some custom Barbie die cuts to use

 

  • Wood ornaments were then put into clear treat bags (1 each of pink / white) along with two tied loops of twine for hanging.
  • *designer’s note – the clear treat bag made it easy to distribute ornament “kit” and gave the kids a bag to tote their finished ornaments home.
  • A six foot table covered with a plastic table cloth accommodated 12 crafters – no chairs – keep them standing and focused!
  • I placed 6 paper plates on each side of table with the ornament kit bags.
  • I then poured different colors and shapes of  Dew Drops into cupcake liners and placed a Dew Drop filled cupcake liner on each plate.
  • Additional cupcake liners with sequins and buttons were placed in the center of the table

Directions:

  • LET THE KIDS GO WILD!
  • There is no wrong or right – let them do as little or as much as they want
  • and let them be as messy as they want – ART IS MESSY!
 
 
Without any direction at all, kids used the different Dew Drops in creative ways!

and don’t be afraid to be part of the party!

Sun Home Decor

Hello, I had some extra projects using Dew Drops this month so I have posted them on Thursdays if you are interested in seeing more ideas using Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.

This project consists of using a Sun decoration I found at a thrift store. I love reusing items – found items – to give them a new life!

Supplies –

Sun decoration
Glue
I found my sun at the thrift store so when I got it home, I cleaned it up and then brushed some ink over it to brighten it up a bit. I let this dry and then used my Wilshire Diamond Dew Drops and glue added a bit of bling to the front of the piece. It is now ready for hanging!

 

Thanks for stopping by!! See you soon, Kelly Parker
