How to Make an Altered Recipe Card with Dew Drop Highlights

Hello and welcome.  Shelly with you today, sharing an altered recipe card.

My niece recently got married.  For her bridal shower, guests were asked to fill out a provided recipe card for the bride – I decided to go a little above and beyond a simple handwritten recipe (and now she wants me to do all her recipe cards – lol!)

Gather Your Supplies:

 

 

Make It:

 

  • Cover front and back of card with patterned paper and cardstock (I used white cardstock on the back)
  • Optional – a little machine stitching

 

  • Next, either hand write or use computer to type up your recipe
  • Add machine stitching if desired, ink edges
  • Add recipe title with alpha stickers
  • Add cardstock sticker using dimensional foam tape for dimension (I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch to “deactivate” sticker first to make it easier to work with)
  • I added an Index Sticker from the paper collection to the top of card – I used a small piece of cardstock cut from the branding strip of my patterned paper to cover a word on the index sticker that did not apply to my recipe
No project is complete without adding Dew Drops as the finishing touch – they add color, dimension and just a bit magic

And finally, since this was a gift, I signed & added a sticker to the back of the card.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

How to Use Dew Drops in 3 New Ways of Scrapbook Layouts

Hello and welcome to the blog – hope you are faring well during the current world madness and using lock down and quarantine time to relax and feed your creative soul!

Shelly with you today sharing a scrapbook layout with 3 different techniques using Dew Drops.  This layout features our newest family member – Sugar, but who really goes by Tiny Cat and more recently Puddle ( because she is getting a little pudgy and when she lays down, she turns into a puddle) and isn’t she a beauty!

Technique #1 FLOWER CENTERS:

This is a no-brainer!  Dew Drop Originals and Minis make PERFECT flower centers for ANY medium!

Use one or multiple – same color or contrasting color – it is a nice sparkly, dimensional touch to any flower embellishment.

For this layout, I created layered flowers using stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations and used green mini dew drops for my flower centers.

Technique #2 TONE ON TONE Dimension:

I love popping a Drew Drop of the same color onto parts of my layout for some added “oomph!” and  a little extra surprise.  Black Dew Drops on a black background is a great, subtle design choice – check out my black stripes!

 

Technique #3 SPOT LIGHT  Color from your photo

There is no denying the single, striking feature of my photo is my cat’s different colored eyes – that one crazy blue eye!  I have not used any blue in this layout – instead, I have popped some blue Dew Drops in strategic places on the layout to make you really notice that blue eye!

Machine stitching is another favorite technique to add texture to a layout
