How to Embellish Bookmarks using Dew Drops

Hello Crafty People!
Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Today I’ll be sharing with you a very simple and easy way to use the lovely, bright and colorful dewdrops from the Robin’s Nest in your projects. I’ll be showing you how I embellished my bookmark using these dewdrops!

Process-
1. At first I took a white paper as the base of the the bookmark.

2. I punched a hole and tied a ribbon at the top.

3. Then I started assembling the dewdrops in blue and orange one by one into a mandala design.

4. Finally I outlined the border of the bookmark with a blue marker to highlight the center design more. That’s it!

How to use Dew Drops to Add Texture

Hi Crafty Friends,
Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Today I’m back again with a technique of using the amazing Robin’s Nest dewdrops! I’ll be showing you how I used these mini dewdrops to not only embellish my project but also add texture on the background using the dewdrops.
For my today’s project, I’ve decided to make an mdf bookmark.

Step by step process:

1. At first I took an mdf tag by Lisa Horton Crafts as the base of my bookmark.

2. Applied a layer of Fabrikadecoru resist texture paste through the maze stencil by Lisa Horton Crafts.

3. Added mini dew drops by the Robin’s Nest all around the edges of the bookmark and applied a layer off gesso to prime the surface.

4. Applied layers of spray paints by Fabrikadecoru.

5. Embellished the bookmark with mdf tag sentiment, sisal, tassel and ribbon.

6. Finally added some white dewdrops to finish it off.

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
