Altered Spoons and Dew Drops – A Perfect Combination!

Hello, today I am on The Robin’s Nest blog using Dew Drops and antique spoons! See below for a quick tutorial on how to make some for yourself.

 

For starters, I had to hunt down some spoons in local antique shops, gave me a reason to shop! Bonus! To start these spoons, I first colored them using alcohol ink, just remember that a little ink goes a long way.
While the spoons were slightly wet with ink, I applied gold foil to the raised areas to give them a little bling.
Gathering my supplies such as small flowers, Dew Drops, and Gecko Galz images, I started to decorate the spoons. The images needed to be cut down to fit the spoon bowl and I used Stickles around the edges of the image. I then added the flowers in matching colors and the Dew Drops in clear.
I then drilled a hole in the top of the spoon so I can be hung on the wall.
Thanks for stopping by and check out the beautiful collections of Dew Drops!

Bunny Frame

Hello! I am on the blog today with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops. I hope you like this fun project.

I started out with the wood frame, leftovers from Valentine’s Day, then dug through my stash of Gecko Galz images to find just the right image of bunnies. I love this image and it works great with the frame.

I then painted the frame in light green that was mixed from a darker green and white. I let this dry then made a glaze with the darker green and water brushing it over the light green and wiping it back with a paper towel.

While this was drying, I used the plastic from the frame front and cut out my bunny image to fit the heart-opening. Then using some washi tape that was the perfect color of green, added two stripes along the bottom of the frame.

Then, using the green/yellow mix of Dew Drops called Spring Blooms, I worked out a pattern and glued them to the top and bottom of the heart.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Create a glittering Shamrock Card with Dew Drops

Hello all,

I made this card with a Silhouette Cameo that I picked up second hand.  I had been wanting to check out an electronic cutter and thought this would be a good way to give it a try.  So far, I am really happy with my purchase. This “luck” cut out was perfect for this fun Shamrock card.

The Robin’s Nest

 

Other Supplies:
  • Tsukienko Memento Ink – Tuxedo Black
  • Imagine Craft Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray – Sparkle
  • Green and Black Card-stock
  • String

 

Here is the Silhouette Cameo that I purchased 2nd hand.  I downloaded the software and purchased a die image.  I then placed card stock onto a matte and loaded it into the machine.  Lastly, I sent the image to the Cameo to print.  So fun!
 

 

 
Instructions:
1) Add shading around “Luck” cut out with black ink.

 

2) Adhere piece of glitter card-stock to square black card base and then adhere Luck cut out.

 

3) Adhere dew drops over Clover portion of Luck cut out.

 

4) Use black pen to scratch edge around Luck cut out.

 

5) Tie string across top of card.

 

Well, here’s to trying something new.  Hope you enjoyed this project.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Dew Drop Faberge Egg

Hello, on the Robin’s Nest blog today with Dew Drop Fabrege Bunny Egg!

I have to apologize, I didn’t take process pictures but I will do my best to describe what I did to the egg. Here’s a sneak peek of the finished project!

First of all, the egg is brown kraft so use white gesso over the entire egg and let dry. Then use blue acrylic paint as a first layer on the egg. I then used another blue with some metallic shine daubing it over the entire piece. I wanted the first layer of blue to show through so that is why the second layer is daubed over the piece. Make sure to let this dry completely before moving on to the next step.
After the egg is dry, using a bunny image from Gecko Galz, I cut it into an oval shape and glued it down onto the egg. I did make a few cuts along the edges to make the shape lay down better on the rounded surface. Let this stage dry.
I then used yellow acrylic paint and a small stencil I made from cardboard and painted small dots all over the egg. When this layer was dry, I took my black sharpie marker and made scribble lines around each dot.
I then used the Lily Pad Dew Drops around the edge of the oval bunnies and the yellow dewdrops from the Flame Dew Drops in the dots. I now have my very own Dew Drop Fabriage Egg!
Can’t wait to see what you make with your dew drops! Stop by soon. XOXO Kelly

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
