Three Cards with One Stamp Set & Dew Drops

 Hi there!

So nice to be here with you today!

I have three greeting cards to share with you, all using one stamp set and two bottles of Dew Drops.

Supplies:

Folded Card, stamp set from Spellbinders, Jet Black Archival Ink, watercolor paints, Dew Drops 💓, Tim Holtz dies (crochet trim and deckle edged rectangles).

These were very simply to make but they are quite effective. I stamped the flowers from Spellbinders using Archival Ink directly onto the card bases. I loosely painted them with watercolors (any old paints will do, or even Distress re-inkers. Just use very little water so the card doesn’t buckle). Added a little splatter and I was happy.

I really appreciate that Dew Drops come with multiple shades of the color in the bottle.
You can see here that I used a couple of different shades from the yellow bottle.

 

The gold and magenta drops came from the bottle of metallics.
Here’s a fun fact- the gold drops are hiding an inky finger print 😅😆

 

I hope you enjoy these cards. I certainly enjoyed making them.
Enjoy the rest of your week, and remember…
Be excellent to each other, and go make something!

How to Create a Pink Elephant Canvas using Dew Drops

Happy Saturday to you all!  Victoria here with a super fun new project, using one of the newest Dew Drop Canvases and Dew Drops.  When I saw this canvas, I knew it would be one of the first projects I did!  In addition to the way I used it here I can think of so many other options!

 

Ingredients:

For this project you will need.  Acrylic paint – I used Delta Brand Think Pink and Jacquard Lumiere Fabric Paint in Pearl Magenta.  A sharpie marker or other permanent marker, and Dew Drops.  Mine were Metallic Pink and Silver Mini Dew Drops from the Classified Mix.  You will need an liquid adhesive or glue dots to adhere the Dew Drops.

Directions:
1.  Mix the paints to form a pearly mid pink.
2.  Apply paint to your canvas.  A tip is to spray the canvas with hairspray to keep the lines in place.  Alternatively, you can go over the lines with a permanent ink and they will stay put!

 

3.  Let your canvas dry and you are ready to decorate with Dew Drops!  I use a liquid adhesive that dries clear to adhere the Dew Drops to the canvas.  Alternatively, the Robin’s Nest has Dew Dew Glue drops, which works perfectly for adhering dew drops to cards, scrapbook pages, art projects and canvases, AND they are non-toxic and acid free.

 

4.  Finally, let the dew drops adhere completely and use your canvas as you wish.  I added it to a great frame and will use it as a guest book table decoration for a baby shower!

 

 

 

Thanks for joining me for this fun project.  I will see you again, here on the first Saturday in August!
Have a crafty day!

Framed Art

 Hi there! Aimee here with a fun little mixed media piece.

I picked up a wooden 5×7 frame at Goodwill a few weeks ago. It’s real wood and actually kind of heavy. I painted it with a blue chalk paint and some regular black acrylic and  worked well for this piece of crafty art.

It was a lot of fun checking out my new team goodies and playing around. I did a little unboxing video, you can see it here  if ya want to.

I chose a canvas with an abstract design. I colored it with Dyluisons paints, some Tattered Angels shimmer mist, and Distress Glitter. I traced over the printed lines once my background paint was dry to make it come to the front.

I used goodies from three different bottles of Dew Drops, and they look so pretty.

The white piece behind the sentiment is actually from the inside of a frame die cut.
 Always keep those insides! They can come in handy.
The large flower is die cut from Grungepaper with a
cute premade flower in the center (Maggie Holmes).
Sentiment is from Tim Holtz.
I’m pretty pleased with this little piece of art.
The quality of the canvas is very good, and holy heck do ya get a
TON of drops in a bottle of Dew Drops.
I hope you enjoy this and that it sparks your creative brain a little bit.
Remember, be excellent to each other, and go make something!

How to Use Dew Drops to Create an Easy Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout with Impact

 Hello and welcome! Shelly with you today sharing a quick and easy mixed media scrapbook layout.

Using so many elements in white really make the small amounts of color stand out.  The white on white also highlights the different textures.

What I used:

  • White Tear Drops
  • White Textured Cardstock (base – 8×8)
  • Ranger Opaque Texture Paste
  • Ranger Ink – Dylusions Stencil – Teardrops – Large
  • Colored Pencils
  • Patterned Paper for Photo Mat – Lawn Fawn “Really Rainbow” 6×6 pad
  • Colored Alphas – American Crafts
  • White Foam Alphas – American Crafts

Make it:

  1. I started by trimming my 3-1/2 x 5″ photo, leaving a very wide border
  2. Adhere photo to patterned paper, tear one edge and adhered to base
  3. Using stencil and texture paste, add tears drop around matted photo and let dry thoroughly
  4. Add title
  5. Once dry, use colored pencils to lightly scribble on tear drops
        6. For the finishing touch, add white Tear Drops to layout.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

How to Create a Jewelry Mandela using Dew Drops

Today, we are going to create a Mandela necklace using paper, Dew Drops, jewelry findings and a ribbon chain.  It is a super easy idea that would make a great gift for a special friend or to wear yourself.

Ingredients:

2 inch circle punched from heavy paper that was pre-painted with acrylic paint – alternately you could work on a 2 inch flat wooden disc.

Metallic Dew Drops (regular (Mardi Gras) and mini size (Classified Mini Dew Drops))

Posca Pen – white acrylic paint pen.

Pitt Pen – Black Bold

Uniball Gel Pen – Silver

Clear drying liquid adhesive

Jewelry Findings

Ribbon or chain for hanging

Directions:

Assemble all your ingredients and think about the design you will use (Pinterest has lots of great examples).

Punch a two inch circle from heavy watercolor paper

Lay out your design on the circle.  My top tip here is when you get it how you like take a photo with your camera, so you have a record of your preferred design.

Starting at the center adhere Dew Drops to the paper with liquid adhesive, referring to your photo as needed.  Continue until all Dew Drops are in place.  Let dry

Add accents with the Posca Pen and let dry.

Add accents with Black Pitt Pen and let dry

Finally, add silver accents if desired.

Add jewelry finding to make necklace focal

Finally add ribbon or chain to the focal and you have a super cute necklace for gift giving.

Hope you are keeping cool if it’s summer where you are.  Have fun with this project and if posting on social media use #dewdroplove so we can see all of your lovely creations.
