How to Make a Quick Shamrock Card

Hi Gals, it’s Karen here today. If you need the luck of the Irish, then follow along and I will show you how to make the cutest little shamrocks. I made a card with them but once you see how simple it is, then you can embellish anything for St. Patrick’s Day. All you need are green Tear Drops!

 

 

Directions:
1.  Cut a piece of pattern paper 1.5×5″

2.  Create 3 shamrocks with green tear drops.  To form a shamrock, first draw the stem with a green marker.  Then adhere 3 green tear drops to form the leaves.  Attach 3 shamrocks in a row on the patterned paper and set aside to dry.

3. Use a dotty embossing folder to add texture to the lower half of a green card base. Adhere the paper with shamrocks to the top section of the card.

4.  Use liquid glue to adhere round green Dew Drops to the center of small flowers.

5.  Attach a row of flowers along the top and lower edge of the rectangle.


Other Supplies:

  • dotty embossing folder
  • small flowers
  • green marker
  • patterned paper
  • green card base
  • liquid adhesive

Lovely Hearts Ornament

Hello, today I am on the blog with Robin’s Nest Designs using Dew Drops. I love the dew drops, they are so fun to use and I seem to be embellishing everything with them!

My first project this month is a Valentine Ornament that could be used as a card or tag for that someone special.

I used an image from Gecko Galz, white heart doily, a red doily, a burlap heart, kraft paper, red and white twine, and Love Birds Tear Drops.

I have to apologize for the white doily below, I used a heart but took a picture of a round doily. You know how you get in the zone when creating, I do that often then forget to take pictures, so I sometimes have to go back and try to recreate what I used and I only had one white heart doily!

I cut out my image then inked the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo, set it aside.
Then layer the red doily over the white one and glue, lay the burlap heart over the red/white doilies and glue down.
I then added the image to the center. I then laid this layered piece over the kraft paper and cut it along the edge following the heart shape. I then punched a hole in the top and strung it with the twine.
When everything was dry, I then add the red tear-shaped dew drops around the edge.
Your ornament/tag/card is now ready for giving! Be sure to stop back by for more art. XOXO Kelly

Give Them a Permanent Conversation Heart with Dew Drops

It’s hard to believe it’s time to begin thinking about what to do for Valentine’s Day.  I have a wonderful idea, that requires a little planning and a bit of patience to execute, to share with you today.  This project will take and hour to prepare and 24 hours to complete.

Materials:



Dew Drops, I particularly love how the mix of black white and red came out
Prima extra fine glitter
Heart shaped mold – I selected one from Wilton brand
Plastic cups with graded measurements 8oz disposable plastic cups for paint and epoxy mixing
Wooden mixing sticks
Art n’ Glow Clear Casting and Coating Epoxy Resin – 16 ounce kit
Reynolds non-stick foil
Torch or heat gun

Steps:

1.  Prepare everything you need on your work table.  I recommend covering your table with butcher paper in case of spills.  The epoxy hardens everywhere!

2.  In separate cups put equal amounts of epoxy resin and hardener.  I used six ounces of each.

3.  Mix resin and hardener as directed with a wooden mixing stick in a third plastic cup. Once the resin is thoroughly mixed you will have about 40 minutes to work with it before it begins hardening.

4.  Pour resin mixture into prepared forms

 

5. Add dew drops in your favorite color and add glitter as desired.

6.  Heat with torch or heat gun to remove bubbles

7.  Cover with foil and leave to dry in a flat place for 24 hours, this allows the resin to cure and harden.  After 24 hours you can unmold your hearts!  If you wish you can add rub ons on the back in your favorite words, or just keep them plain and display them!

Hope you have a great time making this little token of Valentine love!

Cute last minute box modifications with Dew Drops

Can you believe it’s almost Christmas?  I am way behind on my wrapping.  I was thinking of some cute ways to quickly modify gift card boxes and wanted to share one with you.

I hope you’re not as far behind as I am in wrapping gifts.  Somehow Christmas snuck up on my this year.  I was trying to think of fast and cute ways to modify gift boxes.  I saw this cute wooden patterned box with a plain burlap bow and was inspired to try a quick alteration to make it a little fancier!
Here is all you need, your plain gift box with a burlap bow, liquid adhesive and diamond dew drops in red and green.  It would be equally cute with the same idea using red and green teardrops for a softer star.  I always add the glue to the back of the dew drops and then attach.  It seems to work easier for me in terms of placement accuracy that way!  And I always lay my design out on the work surface before I start, like the photo below!

I hope you enjoyed this super quick and cute box modification using Dew Drops!  See you next year! Have a happy holiday season spent with those you love!
