How to Make a Simple Sympathy Card

Hello Friends,
It’s Karen here to share a simple sympathy card that is quick and easy to make.  For those difficult times of loss, we can show our concern for another family with a hand made card. White on white with a subtle hint of color is a perfect combination.  This is a very elegant design so it is also suitable to be used as a wedding card.  Let’s take flight!


Easter Dew Drops                        Lily Pad Dew Drops

Directions:
1. Die cut a variety of bird silhouettes on white card stock.

2. Adhere the birds to the card base diagonally from the upper right to the lower left.

3. Use clear drying adhesive to attach a scattering of pastel Dew Drops among the birds.
Tip: After you plan the placement of the Dew Drops, take a photo of your favorite arrangement. This really helps you to avoid undue frustration by having the image to refer to as you glue the Dew Drops in place.

 

 

Other Supplies:
white card stock (5×7″)
Die Cutting Machine & bird die cut
liquid adhesive

Do you love mixed media art journals? This is a project for you.

Ingredients:

Mixed Media Journal

Copic Markers – I used Wisteria and Yellow Green
Pitt Pen Brush in black bold
Distress Crayon in hickory smoke
Canvas – Dew Note
Dew Drops in green and purple (Iris Mix)
Scrap backgrounds
Liquid and dry adhesive
Directions:
Paint a watercolor flower in your art journal. On the upper half of the page is important so you have room for the other elements.

Cut pieces to fit in your journal
“Audition” pieces on your journal page and adhere with adhesive.
Finally, add Dew Drop Embellishments and add details to add depth such as bottom shading, which I accomplished with a hickory smoke distress crayon.

Cake Canvas Art Card

Hello Crafty People!

 

Today’s project is all about the Art Canvas – CAKE!

I’ve used a few easy techniques to complete the pictured birthday cards.  You can watch the video, or read the instructions, or both! I hope you’re feeling crafty today.

 

SUPPLIES:
Cake (Art Canvas) – Robin’s Nest
Dew Drops – Robin’s Nest
Alcohol Inks + Dauber: (Butterscotch, Terra Cotta and Raisin) -Ranger Ink
Metallic Paint Palette – US Art Quest
Blue alcohol marker (TB5) – Spectrum Noir
2″ chipboard number – Maya Road
Ruler Ribbon – Offray
Rub-on Sentiment – Scenic Route
Misc: red heart brads, pale yellow cardstock and red cardstock, adhesives and tools.
INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Trim the Cake Canvas to card size. Mine are approximately 4.45 x 6.5. Not a standard card size.
2. Apply butterscotch alcohol ink to the dauber and pounce around the top of the cake/candle area, spreading out and up.
3. Add terracotta alcohol ink to the same dauber above, but next to the butterscotch and continue to pounce the background.  Pounce over and in between previous strokes to blend.
4. Apply the raisin alcohol ink to the  other end of the dauber, near the terra cotta. Turn the dauber around to begin the dark color raisin near the outer edges, flip the dauber around and pounce with all three, but keeping the dark raisin close to the top of the canvas.
5. Using the blue alcohol ink pen, color the candles.
6. Add a small amount of water to the gold metallic paint and paint the background from below the “glow” of the candles – down.
7. As you lower, add some copper metallic.  Try to softly blend the copper into the gold. Come back and add more gold on top of the copper if necessary.  Be gentle, not to smudge the canvas.
8. If there are puddles, use a dry clean cloth to DAB, do not wipe.
9. Add a small amount of water to the metallic paint palette (green) and paint the frosting on top of the cake.
10. Clean your brush and add water to the blue metallic paint then paint the cake.
11. Clean your brush and come back with the green metallic and paint the swirly lines down the cake.
12. Pounce the chipboard number with raisin alcohol ink.
13. Let dry for a few minutes, gently heat setting possible.
14. Cut the ruler ribbon so the number of your chipboard is in the center.  For #3 the ribbon was cut at 0 (zero) and 6 (six). For the #4 the ribbon was cut at 1 (one) and 7 (seven). Adhere the ribbon along the horizontal line drawn on the original canvas. The number corresponding to your chipboard # should be in the center. Fold the edges of the ribbon to the back, and adhere.
15. Cut the light yellow paper to create a matte for the canvas art. Glue the canvas to the yellow cardstock and also attach at the corners with the red heart brads.
16. Fold an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of red cardstock in half, position your matted art canvas to have an even border on all sides, TRIM TO SIZE then glue the matted art canvas to the red cardstock folded card base.
17. Pick a sentiment and rub it on.

How to Embellish a Photo with Dew Drops

Hey There,
It’s Karen here to show you how simple it is to embellish a photo with Dew Drops. Make a faux frame of Dew Drops along the edge of the photo. You can create various looks by changing the closeness of the Dew Drops. I chose to space the white round Dew Drops about .25″ apart in order to reflect the design on the background paper.

White Dew Drops

1. Trim .25″ off 2 sides of patterned paper. Matte the trimmed paper with white card stock.

2.  Mimic the design element on the scrapbook paper by creating a similar circle frame. Snip 2″ along the edge about every 1.25″  Next, matte the sliced circle with blue card stock.  

3.  Crop 2 photos into circle shapes. Adhere the large photo onto the blue and white circle.

4. Then, adhere the photo to the layout.

5. Place the photo onto the layout and lightly mark with a pencil the area of paper that will be hidden behind the photo and can be removed. Cut out that section with a craft knife. Carefully cut out any elements in the paper that can be used to embellish the layout.

6. Create a cluster in the upper right corner with a small circle photo.  Add a large title and summer embellishments.

7. Finally, adhere white Dew Drops with liquid adhesive along the edge of the large photo.

Other Supplies:
photo 8×10″ & 4×5″
patterned paper
white & blue card stock
circle punch
embellishments: title & flip flops
liquid adhesive

FUN RAINBOW CARD USING DEW DROPS AND FOILED PAPER: BY DIANA SOLING

Hi everyone! Diana here today to share a fun card I made using dew drops and foiled paper together and a rainbow die.

 

 

I was going though my dies trying to decide what I wanted to create for this weeks post. I haven’t done any rainbows, like, ever. So why not start!

I started by choosing the foil colors I wanted to use and then got to cutting them all out! Seeing them all on the table was really inspiring.

You can make several different cards with the amount of pieces you get out. I decided to mix it up and backwards in the rainbow order to change it up a bit.

 

 

Once everything was together I trimmed of any extra pieces and added my rainbow panel to my card base. I then stamped my sentiment.

To finish this card I added my Robin’s Nest Dew Drops in the rainbow colors. I love that there are so many different ones that you can do a rainbow and have ALL the colors!!
