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!

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

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!


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!

How to Create Focal Points on Cards using Dew Drops

Hello Crafty Friends!
Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Today I’ll be sharing with you a great way to create focal points on your handmade cards using the lovely dew drops from the Robin’s Nest!


1. At first I took a piece of white cardstock paper to use it for the card panel.

2. Applied blue ink on the card panel through a striped stencil.

3. Use the neon pink dewdrops to create the flowers, which are the focal points of the card.

4. Added green tear drops to make it look like the leaves.

5. Finally finished it of by adding bold black sentiment and some blue dew drops along with it.

Knotty or Nice CAS Card

Hello Crafters,
It’s Karen here to share a little Christmas inspiration.  This is a great card to make for that last minute function because it is super quick.  CAS is best if you plan to give handmade cards for the holiday season and have a long list of family and friends.  This is a good design to mass produce efficiently and requires relatively few supplies.   Let’s get stamping!

1.  Use black ink to stamp a random collage of swirls & flourishes onto a white card base. Make sure to rotate the stamp and overlap the edges with the design. If you plan to include a sentiment, make sure you leave some empty space for it. 

2. Stamp the sentiment with black ink. Set aside to dry.

3. Next, plan the placement of the Tear Drops (aka light bulbs) evenly spaced along different sides of the swirls. This is a temporarily step for placement only so no glue is used at this time. When you are satisfied with their positions, mark each light socket lightly with a pencil. Next, carefully remove the Tear Drops and use a fine tip black marker to draw a small rectangular socket where you left each pencil mark. Sketch them extending on one side of the wire only. Also, tilt them and vary the angle of the sockets for a more realistic appearance.

4.  Add Tear Drops in primary colors to the sockets with liquid adhesive.  To finish off, draw plugs at the ends of the strings of lights.

(TIP: Attach some Tear Drops away from the flourish to appear as loose spare bulbs.  Use a silver gel pen to draw the metal base of the light bulb.)
