Three Cards with One Stamp Set & Dew Drops

 Hi there!

So nice to be here with you today!

I have three greeting cards to share with you, all using one stamp set and two bottles of Dew Drops.

Supplies:

Folded Card, stamp set from Spellbinders, Jet Black Archival Ink, watercolor paints, Dew Drops 💓, Tim Holtz dies (crochet trim and deckle edged rectangles).

These were very simply to make but they are quite effective. I stamped the flowers from Spellbinders using Archival Ink directly onto the card bases. I loosely painted them with watercolors (any old paints will do, or even Distress re-inkers. Just use very little water so the card doesn’t buckle). Added a little splatter and I was happy.

I really appreciate that Dew Drops come with multiple shades of the color in the bottle.
You can see here that I used a couple of different shades from the yellow bottle.

 

The gold and magenta drops came from the bottle of metallics.
Here’s a fun fact- the gold drops are hiding an inky finger print 😅😆

 

I hope you enjoy these cards. I certainly enjoyed making them.
Enjoy the rest of your week, and remember…
Be excellent to each other, and go make something!

Framed Art

 Hi there! Aimee here with a fun little mixed media piece.

I picked up a wooden 5×7 frame at Goodwill a few weeks ago. It’s real wood and actually kind of heavy. I painted it with a blue chalk paint and some regular black acrylic and  worked well for this piece of crafty art.

It was a lot of fun checking out my new team goodies and playing around. I did a little unboxing video, you can see it here  if ya want to.

I chose a canvas with an abstract design. I colored it with Dyluisons paints, some Tattered Angels shimmer mist, and Distress Glitter. I traced over the printed lines once my background paint was dry to make it come to the front.

I used goodies from three different bottles of Dew Drops, and they look so pretty.

The white piece behind the sentiment is actually from the inside of a frame die cut.
 Always keep those insides! They can come in handy.
The large flower is die cut from Grungepaper with a
cute premade flower in the center (Maggie Holmes).
Sentiment is from Tim Holtz.
I’m pretty pleased with this little piece of art.
The quality of the canvas is very good, and holy heck do ya get a
TON of drops in a bottle of Dew Drops.
I hope you enjoy this and that it sparks your creative brain a little bit.
Remember, be excellent to each other, and go make something!

How to Use Dew Drops to Create an Easy Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout with Impact

 Hello and welcome! Shelly with you today sharing a quick and easy mixed media scrapbook layout.

Using so many elements in white really make the small amounts of color stand out.  The white on white also highlights the different textures.

What I used:

  • White Tear Drops
  • White Textured Cardstock (base – 8×8)
  • Ranger Opaque Texture Paste
  • Ranger Ink – Dylusions Stencil – Teardrops – Large
  • Colored Pencils
  • Patterned Paper for Photo Mat – Lawn Fawn “Really Rainbow” 6×6 pad
  • Colored Alphas – American Crafts
  • White Foam Alphas – American Crafts

Make it:

  1. I started by trimming my 3-1/2 x 5″ photo, leaving a very wide border
  2. Adhere photo to patterned paper, tear one edge and adhered to base
  3. Using stencil and texture paste, add tears drop around matted photo and let dry thoroughly
  4. Add title
  5. Once dry, use colored pencils to lightly scribble on tear drops
        6. For the finishing touch, add white Tear Drops to layout.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

How to Make a Fabulous Shaker Embellishment

Hi Girls,
It’s Karen…Come along with me and I’ll show you how to create a fabulous shaker embellishment using Dew Drops.  My little niece is a camera flirt…and I hope she stays that way.  She was blowing bubbles with her Grammy after an afternoon of swimming with her Aunt and being even more adorable than usual.  If you’ve never made a shaker, they add a lovely kinetic element to your pages and it gives the viewer a little surprise when all the elements clink and wiggle.

Supplies:
Raindrop Dew Drops

Directions:

1. Matte a piece of patterned paper with red cardstock. Use a white gel pen to doodle a dotty border around the edge.
2. Use a circle die to crop 4 photos. Matte 1 rectangular photo with coordinating paper.


3. Select the circle photo that will become the shaker. Cut out a circular frame of craft foam the same size as the photo.  
Adhere the circular frame over the photo.

4. Then, add a selection of Dew Drops and small embellishments like sequins, gems, beads, paper circles, or confetti. Cut a piece of acetate and adhere it to the frame to enclose the tiny bits.
(TIP: Make sure to double check that none of the tiny embellishments are thicker than the foam frame or they won’t be able to slide around freely.)

5.  Add a red paper frame over the acetate to finish off the shaker.

6.  Adhere the shaker and then embellish the layout with large bubbles, a cluster of embellishments on the main photo, and Dew Drops.

Other Supplies:
5 photos
die cutting machine
multiple sizes of circle dies
craft foam & acetate
small paper dots
pattern paper & red cardstock
white gel pen
liquid adhesive

Creating a Peaceful Canvas with Dew Drops

 

Do you ever find yourself longing for simpler, more harmonious times?  I certainly do.  I made this canvas to remind me to be centered and look for the peaceful solution in all things.

 

Ingredients:

Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Ranger):  I chose three distress blues and one distress oxide

Stencil:  Mine is from Stencil Girl

Dew Drops Diamonds:  Glacier Diamond Dew Drop Mix

Artsy Canvas: Dew Dove

Faber Castel Pitt Pens in Black

Wow! Embossing Ink Pad

Seth Apter Baked Texture Bees Wax

Tim Holtz (Ranger) Matte Media

Directions:

1.  Adhere the stencil to your canvas

2.  Apply various colors of ink with a sponge, through the stencil and let dry.

 

3.  Remove stencil and make sure all of the ink is completely dry. Go over any of the black lines you like with your Pitt pen (or black permanent ink marker)

 

4.  Stamp over the canvas with Embossing Ink (Wow! is thick and slow drying)

 

5.  Add the baked texture powder and heat with an embossing gun.  I do step 4 and 5 twice, cooling the canvas between each application.

 

6.  Using matte media adhere the Diamond Dew Drops.

7.  Your canvas is now ready to frame, use on an art journal cover or to decorate a household item.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I will see you the first Saturday of June!  Be well and keep crafting.
