FLOWERING FRIEND CARD WITH DEW DROPS

Hi everyone, Diana here with you today with a pretty floral card that’s perfect to send to that special friend. This card quickly came together and I love how the dew drops blend right in.

 

 

I knew I wanted to keep the background white as I was adding a lot of colors. I started with die cutting out the garden trellis and adhering it to my card base. I then stamped all my images and colored them in with my copic markers.
Once that was finished I used the matching dies and cut all the flowers and leaves out. I then arranged them onto my card front and started adhering them down. I wanted to keep the sentiment simple so a quick friend die from black cardstock was perfect. To finish it off I added several different colors of dew drops!
Supplies:
Other Supplies: garden trellis cover die, simply friend die (altenew), copic markers, long stem flowers stamps/dies (simon says stamp)

How to create an Always art journal cover.

 

 

Ingredients:

Always Art Canvas

Dew Drops in pink and red

Paints – I used red, pink, orange, and pearlescent white

IZINK mist – copper buff

Faber Castel Pitt Pen – Black Ink

Embossing ink pad

Seth Apter Baked Texture- Vintage Bees Wax

Card backing

Gelli Plate

Brayer

Heat Tool

 

Directions:

1.  Go over the word Always with a pitt pen or other permanent ink pen.  Prepare Gelli plate with first color of acrylic paint of your choosing.  Bray with color and lay canvas onto the Gelli plate to transfer paint.

2.  Let layer dry and prepare plate with the next color of your choosing.
3.  Repeat the process of laying the canvas down.  Let layers dry between paint applications and keep layering until you have a lovely background.
5.  Add any mists to your canvas
6. Go over canvas lettering and design one additional time with the Pitt pen.
7.  Cover the entire surface with embossing ink and add the vintage bees wax powder.
8.  Bake with the heat gun until clear and shiny.  Since it is baked powder you can go longer than you would with embossing powder.  Repeat again with a layer of embossing ink and bees wax powder.
9.  Mount canvas on cardboard backing and trim to size.
10.  Using liquid adhesive, form the heart or another shape of your liking on the canvas with Dew Drops.
11. Once fully dry you can add to frame, or like I will be doing, use to create an art journal cover.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project!  Lots of steps this week but the beautiful results are well worth it.
See you next time.

PENGUIN PLAY WINTER DECOR W/DEW DROPS

Hi everyone! Diana here with a fun wintery scene that you can add to the front of a 5×7 card or place in a frame and use as winter decor.

I had a lot of fun creating this winter scene. I’ve gotten into Lawn Fawn stamps lately and can’t wait to get them out and start coloring them!

 

I used cracked pistachio, peackcock feathers, and blueprint sketch distress oxide inks. Using the lightest to darkest I blended them together to get a beautiful night sky for my scene. I love how it created a glow around my tree. 

Once I had the background done I used a variety of small snowflake stamps with pigment white ink on the upper background area and let it dry. While this was drying I stamped and colored all of my images. I then cut some hills out of sparkle cardstock and started creating my scene.

Once it was all put together I pulled out my black/white/silver dew drops and added some of the white ones to the snowflakes.

Supplies:

Robin’s Nest: black/white/silver dew drops

distress oxide inks, blender brushes, sparkle cardstock, lawn fawn stamps.

Making a Tag with a Lace – Like Dew Drop Border

Happiest of New Years to you!  Welcome to 2021 with Dew Drops.
Today I want to demonstrate a tag with a lace-like border made from Dew Drops.
Ingredients:
Manila Tag
Gelli Plate
Acrylic Paint in Blue and Pearly White – guess I am still feeling Northern Hemisphere wintery!
iZink – blue
Butterfly embellishment
Sentiment
Liquid and dry adhesive
Directions:
 
1.  With a brayer, add a thin layer of pearlescent white and then blue to your gel plate.
2.  Lay tag on gel plate and rub evenly, pull mono print.
3.  Add a layer of this lovely blue IZink to your gel plate.  Don’t worry, it’s transparent and won’t overwhelm your previous layer.
4.  Let dry completely.  If your tag is curled, weight and leave for about 1/2 hour.  Remember paper has no memory, so you can flatten it again!
5.  Add quote and diamond dew drops.

 

6.  Now we will turn it like drop lace. Add dots of liquid adhesive for mini dew drops at each diamond point.  Once those have dried, add a tear drop below each mini dew drop and let dry.
7.  The next step is to add your focal point.  I cut our a large butterfly from a book entitled, “Extraordinary Things to Cut Out and Collage.”
 
8.  Here’s another look!
Thanks for stopping by today.  I am thrilled to be continuing on the design team for 2021!  Hope to share some new ideas with you and some amazing new canvases from the store as well!

Magnetic Frames and Dew Drops

Hello, Kelly here, hope you have a happy holiday! I am on the eve of Christmas and looking forward to spending time with family. Today, I have some quick and easy magnetic frames to hold all those special memories that are made this time of year.

Supplies –

Magnetic frames
Glue
These frames were fun to make, I used the coordinating color of Dew Drops to the frame, I started to glue them on and would do about 3 dew drops at a time then work on the other frame. This would allow the glue to set a bit before I added more along the edge. The frames look so much better! I love the Dew Drops on them. These will be put on my fridge with pictures of my kids after the holidays!

 

 

 

Hope you try blinging up some of the items around your house using Robin’s Nest Dew Drops!
This is my last post for Robin’s Nest, but I will be using Dew Drops on many projects to come, stayed tuned!

A Quick Christmas Card with Dew Drops

 Hello, Merry Christmas! Today I have a quick tutorial for you. I will show you how to make that last minute card using Dew Drops.

Supplies used:

Pipe cleaner

Silver paper or Card stock

Christmas Card

Glue

Embellishment

Step one: begin by mounting the silver paper onto the card. Now bend the pipe cleaner in the shape of a tree and glue in place. Set a book on this and allow it to dry.
Step two: arrange glue drops at the top of the tree, sticking in place with embellishment glue. Stamp and mount your sentiment and stick that in place also.

That’s it! You have a beautiful Christmas card.
