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 Paper Airplane Canvas and Bonus Father’s Day Cards!

 

 

Happy Saturday!  I want to show you a project today that I made.  I was having so much fun doing it, I actually forgot to take photos?  Yikes!!!!!  I will walk you through it with written instructions and then, since that was a bad way to do things, I created two Father’s Day cards and will walk you through with step by step instructions.  It’s just how fun the creative canvases and dew drops are!  I sometimes get carried away creating.

Ingredients for creative canvas Paper Airplane:

Dew Paper Airplane Canvas

Mini Dew Drops – I chose a rainbow!  RedOrangeYellowBlueGreen, and Violet/Purple

Watercolor paint

Crackle medium

Instructions:

Paint with watercolor around the paper airplane, immediately add a light glaze of crackle media as desired, and let dry.

Add Mini Dew Drops starting at the base of the paper airplane, in red, orange, yellow, blue, green and violet.  Alternating in the series. Let adhesive dry for 24 hours and then you have a wonderful canvas!

Now on to Father’s Day Cards!  I made two this year using Gelli Print Bases, which I cut up part way through, which might upset some of you!  Just remember it’s only paper. 🙂

So, let’s talk ingredients.  I used a gel plate and printed on watercolor paper that was 5 inches by 7 inches.

 

Ingredient List:
Watercolor paper
5 inch by 5 inch card blank
Watercolors
Acrylic Paint White, Brown and Navy
Texture paste in gray
iZink ICE – blue
Permanent Ink in Blue and Black
Liquid and dry adhesive
Stabilo All Pencil – Blue
Stamps for background and focal point
Dew Drops in blue
Instructions:
Cut a card blank from paper at 5 inches by 10 inches and fold to measure 5 inches by 5 inches
Create a background monoprint using a Gelli Plate or paint to paper.  I used Navy, Brown and White on a Gelli Plate in layers.

My Gelli Plate prints are 5 inches by 7 inches. I prefer to work big and cut things down.

 

Next stamp your pages randomly with your selected stamps.  I used a Tim Holtz stamp and a Seth Apter  stamp and black ink.  I felt like things were a little dark so I next stamped with white acrylic paint using one of my favorite stamping tools:
That’s right a toilet paper roll for making circles.  I used white acrylic paint. After letting that layer dry, I added more stamping using a packing insert.  Pull your cardboard insulation packing apart; it is interesting.
While this layer is drying, prepare your focal images.  I used sail boat stamps that I have had in my stash forever.
Again for stamping I used permanent ink that is not water soluble.  This is because I will lightly watercolor over one of the samples.
Next I added some texture paste through two stencils (from Stencil Girls).  Let this dry completely before moving on.  My next layers is some iZINK Ice in a deep blue.  This is a transparent glaze.  I scraped it on using a credit card on various spots on each print.  This should dry overnight.
Cut out your focal images and color with water colors if desired.  I did on one card and not on the other just to show the two different looks!
Now is the hard part.  You will cut your prints into 4 3/4 inch squares.  Yes, I know it’s hard.  Save the pieces you trim  off and you can use them in collage.  I show mine in one card on Instagram.  My “handle” over there is victoriawarrenmearsart.  Check out how I used a little of the scrap paper!
Once you have your squares, mount your focal point.  At this point I also add adhesive backing using the kind with a peel off layer.
Take a close look at all those details.  I added a little extra iZINK ICE at this point to make some waves to tie the image in.  I also used the Stabilo All pencil to add markings to blend in the edges.
Now comes the fun!  Adding, Dew Drops with liquid adhesive. I used Indigo Diamond Dew Drops and the blue Mini Dew Drops from the Belgium Chocolate Mix.  Be sure to use a clear drying liquid adhesive.
So, once everything is dry, mount your art onto the card blanks and there you are!  Two wonderful cards!

Happy Father’s Day!

Mermaid to Smile

Howdy y’all!

Mary Ellen here from Creative Time With ME! Today I will be sharing with y’all how I created this fun slimline mermaid watercolor shaker card using The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!

 

 

 

Materials
  1. Bring out the surface you paint on. I use a small wooden cutting board.
  2. Next bring out your watercolor paper
  3. Then you can take your spray bottle and spritz onto the watercolor paper
  4. Pick up your paintbrush and do a wash of colors in ombré order from lightest to darkest
  5. Take your Heat It Craft Tool to dry your watercolor paper
  6. You will then bring out your MISTI, Mermaid Tail stamp and MFT Extreme Black Ink Pad
  7. Ink up your stamp and stamp image
  8. Bring out your Sizzix Sidekick
  9. Now you can bring the Mermaid Tail die and place over the image on watercolor paper
  10. Place some Post-Its or washi tape down to secure your die over the image
  11. When that is done you can run the Mermaid Tail die through the Sizzix Sidekick
  12. You will use the die on both the watercolor paper and acetate sheet
  13. Once that is done you will bring out your Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue
  14. Glue the watercolor paper to the acetate sheet
  15. It’s now time to bring out the Foam Tape
  16. You will want to double up on the Foam Tape so that you have enough room for the shaker bits
  17. Any excess doubled up on the Foam Tape you will place under the mermaid tail
  18. Now you will bring out some patterned paper that resembles the ocean
  19. Fussy cut the patterned paper
  20. Place doubled up foam tape behind the patterned paper. Enough so you can tuck part of the mermaid tale under the paper
  21. Now you can put The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops inside the shaker element
  22. Next begin to remove the backing from the doubled up foam tape enough so you can place the mermaid tail down
  23. After placing the mermaid tail in the middle of the card front. Remove the remaining backing from the doubled up foam tape
  24. Then place the water/scale patterned paper a little on top of the mermaid tail. Enough to cover the section of the stamped image to hide the bottom of the mermaid tail body
  25. Die cut a sentiment out of black cardstock
  26. Place glue on the back of the sentiment and attach to the water/scale patterned paper
  27. Your card is now complete! And ready to give to a recipient.
Later today I will have the video tutorial up!

  1. This card starts out by cutting some cardstock and watercolor paper into a slimline card.
  2. For me that means we cut the watercolor paper to 3 5/8 x 8 1/2
  3. You do the same for the cardstock with the exception that you set the remaining 7 3/8 x 8 1/2 aside
  4. Now take the 7 3/8 x 8 1/2 cardstock and fold it in half on your scoreboard.
  5. Next, pull out the stamp set.
  6. Create masks for the 3 succulents that you want to use.
  7. Then fussy cut the masks out.
  8. Now take those masks and use them to help you figure out where you want to place the stamps on your card front.
  9. Take your We R Precision Press Advanced and 3 of the stamping plates for it
  10. Use the plates for your stamps.
  11. Bring out your powder tool to clear away areas that might have moisture on them
  12. Stamp apply embossing powder.
  13. Heat up the embossing powder.
  14. Place mask over stamped image.
  15. Repeat until all 3 stamps have been used.
  16. Then flip the card front over and repeat the stamping and embossing steps.
  17. Die cut a sentiment
  18. Place on card front
  19. Glue the card front to the base.
