  • ALWAYS add Dew Drops as your finishing touch for drama and sparkle ( I have use Original Dew Drops and Mini Dew Drops on this card)
  • Optional – machine stitching is always a fun detail

ATC with dew drops!

Hello my dear crafty friends! Hope you are doing great!!

Here I am Samiya back Again with a brand new pictorial . Sharing a ATC pictorial using my favourite dew drops from The Robin’s Nest 🌼

Let me show you in a quick pictorial how to make it.

Step by step details:

1. At first I cut a printed cardstock to standard ATC size, 3.5 x 2.5 inches, and then added a handmade paper on it.  distressed that with scissor.

 

2. I used green ink pad on the edges, also added some shades of yellow acrylic paint with a palette knife in random spots.

3. I love using tag & sunflower diecuts! 

 

4. I used alcohol marker pen on the sunflower diecut, glued diecuts down on the ATCs. Add a cotton twin with the tag diecut.

 

5. I selected the Brown Dew Drops and glued them down in surface on the die cut and made sure they were good and dry.

6. I grabbed a matching quote and glued it down.

 

You are all done!!

How to Use Vellum with Dew Drops

Hello Robin’s Nest Fans,
Karen here to share a quick and effective technique of combining vellum over Dew Drops.  This is the first time I used vellum over Dew Drops. I simply love the subtle and blended colors created by adding the vellum overlay.   I recommend using brightly colored Dew Drops as the color will become slightly muted when covered by vellum. Let me show you!

Directions:
1. Die cut a floral heart frame onto white pearl cardstock. Place the frame over a piece of white cardstock and lightly trace around the heart shape.  Begin to plan out the spacing of Dew Drops by filling in the heart shape.  When you are satisfied the arrangement and balance of colors, glue the Dew Drops in place with liquid adhesive.

(Notice the difference in the intensity of the colors where the vellum is covering the Dew Drops.)

2.  Adhere a piece of vellum over the back of the heart shaped opening. Apply foam tape to the back of the floral frame which will allow for the depth of the Dew Drops.  This is needed to create extra depth and will allow the Dew Drops to fit without pressing against the vellum.


 

3. Adhere the Dew Drop filled heart to the back of the frame.

4.  Use white card stock to emboss a floral background and adhere it to a white card base leaving a narrow boarder.

5.  Adhere the dew drop heart floral frame to the center of card.
Other Supplies:
white pearl cardstock / vellum / white cardstock
floral embossing folder
floral frame metal die
die cutting machine
card base 5×7″
liquid adhesive / foam tape

You Are My Sunshine Card

Hello people…

This is Sadia with The Robin’s Nest.. Today I’m gonna show you how to make a beautiful card by using Dew Drops.

Things I need:
1. Hard paper
2. Dew Drops
3. Color
4. Glue
5. Marker pen

How to do:

First you need to draw a sun on a hard paper and then you need to color it up. By using a marker pen you need to write whatever you want to write on the paper. Then you need to apply the beautiful Dew Drops on the paper to make it more lively.

Following is the picture of what I did with my Dew Drops.

I hope you guys liked this one. To try out this idea you can have your Dew Drops collected from The Robin’s Nest
