How to Frame An Easter Card with Dew Drops

Hi Ladies,
Here is a quick and easy card to make for Easter. White on white with a subtle hint of color is very elegant so this design is also suitable to be used as a wedding or sympathy card. For an extra special touch, highlight a special design within the textured pattern using a glitter gel pen.   If you like to take your paper-crafts into home decor, frame this design to create a lovely piece of wall art.

Pink Punch Dew Drops

Directions:

1. Use an embossing folder to add a texture onto white card stock.

2. Cut around the cross.  Use a glitter gel pen to high light one of the central designs.

3.  Adhere the cross to the card base using foam tape to create added dimension.

4.  Use liquid adhesive to attach a single row of Dew Drops around the edge of the cross.


Other Supplies:
Glitter Gel Pen
foam mounting tape
liquid adhesive
die cutting machine & cross embossing folder

How to Create a CAS Card with Dew Drops

Hey Friends,

It’s Karen…I would love to show you how to create a CAS card with Dew Drops. I stamped a simple background with black ink by repeatedly stamping the same image to cover the card base. Then, I let the Dew Drops be the star of the show. The bright translucent Dew Drops make an outstanding contrast against the bold background design. When Dew Drops are the focal point of the design, your card will definitely be unforgettable to the recipient. This design technique is very versatile as it can be used over and over again because with a different background stamp and different color/shape Dew Drops, the possibilities to create CAS cards for different occasions are endless.

Supplies:

             Flame Dew Drops                               Bubbles Dew Drops

Directions:

1. Use black ink to stamp a background pattern onto a piece of white cardstock.

2. Repeat stamping the image to fill the entire card front.

3. Select a large variety of Dew Drops in every color. Adhere them to create a cascading rainbow starting at the upper left corner going diagonally across to the lower right.  Die cut a large sentiment with black card stock. Adhere the sentiment to the lower section of the card.

4. Continue adding more Dew Drops underneath the sentiment.

 

Other Supplies:
black ink pad
background stamp
liquid adhesive
sentiment metal die
die cutting machine
white card base 5×7″

How to make a Harry Potter “Always” Canvas Piece

Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears. “After all this time?” “Always,” said Snape.

The most famous words in Harry Potter Fandom.  As a confirmed Potterhead (and Hufflepuff), the minute I saw this “always” Creative Canvas, I knew I had to create a HP inspired piece!

 

 

Let’s collect our tools and supplies:

 

 

Make it:

 

 

I have include Dew Drops in all the Hogwart’s House colors!

 

Not sure if I will keep this in my art journal or add it to a scrapbook layout – but it was so much fun to make!
Have a creative week!

How to make a steam punk frame with Dew Drops

Halloween or anytime is a great time to make a steam punk themed frame!  For this frame I used a wooden frame from the one dollar store and went from there!  I hope you enjoy this project. 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • Dollar Wooden Frame
  • Gears from Mike Deakin Art
  • Flower and Frame trim – Crafty Inspirations
  • Dew Drops – black (I used mine from the Classified Bottle!)
  • Black Matte Gesso – US Art Supply
  • Art Alchemy Wax – Metallique White Gold and Antique Brilliance Mystic Turquoise Prima
  • Liquid adhesive
  • Flat brushes – for dry brush technique

 

Directions:

 

  • Paint the frame and all components on both sides with Matte Black Gesso.  If you need more than one coat, let dry thoroughly between coats.

 

 

  • Trial your placement of embellishments

 

 

  • Adhere all chip board embellishments, as desired.

 

 

  • Use a dry brushing technique with waxes of your color choice.  Remember to use the smallest amount possible for this technique.  I wipe my brush on a paper towel and then use it.  Your brush should be held as flat as possible to the surface and use the lightest touches possible.  You can’t subtract paint with this technique, but you always can add more!

 

 

  • When you are satisfied with the coloring, add Dew Drops embellishments, with liquid adhesive.

 

 

  • Let dry completely!
  • Your steam punk frame is complete!

Here I am Samiya back Again with a brand new pictorial . Sharing a ATC pictorial using my favourite dew drops from The Robin’s Nest 🌼

Let me show you in a quick pictorial how to make it.

Step by step details:

1. At first I cut a printed cardstock to standard ATC size, 3.5 x 2.5 inches, and then added a handmade paper on it.  distressed that with scissor.

 

2. I used green ink pad on the edges, also added some shades of yellow acrylic paint with a palette knife in random spots.

3. I love using tag & sunflower diecuts! 

 

4. I used alcohol marker pen on the sunflower diecut, glued diecuts down on the ATCs. Add a cotton twin with the tag diecut.

 

5. I selected the Brown Dew Drops and glued them down in surface on the die cut and made sure they were good and dry.

6. I grabbed a matching quote and glued it down.

 

You are all done!!
