How to Easily Embellish an Embossed Design

Hey Girls,
It’s Karen…and I’d love to show you how easy it is to embellish an embossed design with Dew Drops. I embossed a floral texture onto pattern paper which doubled the depth and improved the wow factor. By simply adding Dew Drops to the center of flowers, it is easy to create stunning feminine cards for any occasion. Grab a cup of coffee and follow me!

 

Directions:
1. Select a patterned paper with a floral design and use a die cutting machine to add an embossed texture.
2. Use a black permanent marker to enhance part of the design. Matte the aperture with a piece of white paper to contrast with the black greeting.

3. Attach the embossed paper to a black square card base.
4. Adhere pearl Dew Drops to the center of paper flowers. When they are dry, use the pads of your fingers to gently bend the petals up to add more realistic dimension.  Attach the flowers vertically down the right side of the card.
5. Create a frame around the opening of the aperture with pearl Dew Drops.
6. Finally, adhere silver Dew Drops to the center of the black flowers.
Other Supplies:
black card base
die cutting machine
floral embossing folder
pink floral paper
black permanent marker
liquid adhesive

How to make a Happy Birthday Cake Canvas Card Topper

Did you know there are 35 Dew Drop Art Canvases that can be found in the shop in a variety of sizes?

 

I am using the Dew Cake a stylized birthday cake for my card topper today.  It is super relaxing to decorate the canvas and you’ll love how they can be personalized to your style and your recipient’s style using colorful dew drops in a variety of shapes and sizes.

 

So for my sunny birthday cake, I used the following ingredients (no pun intended):

Dew Cake Canvas

Acrylic Paints in Orange, Neon Yellow and Watermelon from Arteza

Gel Plate

Natural Sea Sponge to paint

Glossy Accents

Pitt Pen by Faber Castel

Dew Drops in Pink and Clear – lots of sizes and shapes here.

 

Directions:

1.  Mask the cake with a piece of paper

2.  Roll selected paint colors onto your gel plate and make a print on your canvas

 

3.  Refresh the cake outlines and border outlines by going over them with a Pitt pen.

4.  Add sponge painting after removing the mask to suit your look

 

5.  Cover with Drops, I adhered mine with glossy accents and capitalized on the white canvas to use Glossy Accents to simulate shiny frosting!

 

6.  Let dry and make any touch ups.

7.  Cut to the size you would like for your card.

8.  Mount on to a card and you’ve got a great, personalized card that is handmade by you!  You could stop here or add border embellishments as I did on the final card.  I also wanted to show you that to keep the canvas flat on the card with liquid adhesive, you should clamp to dry.

 

 

Thanks for joining me on this fun project!  See you again on the first Saturday in March!

FLOWERING FRIEND CARD WITH DEW DROPS

Hi everyone, Diana here with you today with a pretty floral card that’s perfect to send to that special friend. This card quickly came together and I love how the dew drops blend right in.

 

 

I knew I wanted to keep the background white as I was adding a lot of colors. I started with die cutting out the garden trellis and adhering it to my card base. I then stamped all my images and colored them in with my copic markers.
Once that was finished I used the matching dies and cut all the flowers and leaves out. I then arranged them onto my card front and started adhering them down. I wanted to keep the sentiment simple so a quick friend die from black cardstock was perfect. To finish it off I added several different colors of dew drops!
Supplies:
Other Supplies: garden trellis cover die, simply friend die (altenew), copic markers, long stem flowers stamps/dies (simon says stamp)
