FUN RAINBOW CARD USING DEW DROPS AND FOILED PAPER: BY DIANA SOLING

Hi everyone! Diana here today to share a fun card I made using dew drops and foiled paper together and a rainbow die.

 

 

I was going though my dies trying to decide what I wanted to create for this weeks post. I haven’t done any rainbows, like, ever. So why not start!

I started by choosing the foil colors I wanted to use and then got to cutting them all out! Seeing them all on the table was really inspiring.

You can make several different cards with the amount of pieces you get out. I decided to mix it up and backwards in the rainbow order to change it up a bit.

 

 

Once everything was together I trimmed of any extra pieces and added my rainbow panel to my card base. I then stamped my sentiment.

To finish this card I added my Robin’s Nest Dew Drops in the rainbow colors. I love that there are so many different ones that you can do a rainbow and have ALL the colors!!

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)

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas Card

Hi everyone! I’m excited to share this fun card with you today! I pulled out some new stamps and dies and got crafty! I’ve seen a lot of different snow drift cards and I really wanted to give it a try!

To create this card I started out with slimline snowdrift dies. I put them down on either side of a  sheet of cardstock and cut them out. then I adhered them together at the bottom. Next I took two shades of blue and created the starry night sky.

Using my new stamps and dies from lawn fawn I stamped the two trees, four strands of lights, and three critters (only two made it on the card)
I then colored in the lights and critters and started placing them around on the card. I really liked putting one of the trees behind a drift and having the bear trying to put the star on. I used some dimensional foam on the tree in the front and the cute dear handing the ornament.

 

I finished the card off with stamping some stars in the sky and then adding in dew drops as ornaments and in the stars.

CREATE WREATH KIT

Hi everyone!

Diana here from all things creative by di  sharing a fun wreath project today. I purchased this kit a while ago and just never got around to putting it together. I finally pulled it out this past weekend and found it would be perfect for adding some pretty dew drops.

I started by painting the wood wreath area in a slate blue and once it was dry I added streaks of charcoal grey to give it a little more distressing.

Once the frame was dry it was ready for me to add the background paper. This was a great kit. It came with two different papers with patterns on both sides. I think that was the most difficult part!

The next step was piecing the flowers and ribbon together and starting to add the leaves to the frame.

 

The final project turned out so much better than I imaged and adding the dew drops as the center of the flowers are around the word added just the right amount of flair.

A Fun and Quick Birthday Card

Hi everyone! Diana here with a quick, easy, and fun birthday card that works for all!  This card came together quite quickly and I’m loving how the dew drops match so well with the colors I chose for my card.

 

I started with a fun circle card cover plate and cut it out in a light blue cardstock. I used Birthday Paw-ty by Hero Arts to create the confetti strip in red and green and then stamped out three balloons and the pup and die cut them out.

 

I colored the balloons and the pup in with colored pencils in matching colors. I chose to add the sentiment to the green strip at the bottom and add some dew drops in the upper right side to add a bit more visual appeal.

 

Supplies:

Robin’s Nest Dew Dropsolive mini, light blue mix, red mix. 

CURIOSITY MIXED MEDIA PANEL

Hi everyone. Diana here today to share a fun mixed media panel I created for you. I had so much fun making this panel and am glad I finally pulled it out of my stash to use.

This panel has a lot of steps but only took me a total of two hours to complete. I let the process decide what was going to be used and this is what I ended up with.
Step 1: Paint your wood panel. I used wild honey distress paint.
Step 2: Once paint is dry, using a splat box, spray walnut stain distress spray stain onto the panel. I did use my heat gun to dry this a bit faster.
Step 3: Create an envelope using a template or die. Start adding ink to the envelope outside with desired ink and a sponge. Once dry, choose a stencil and add a darker shade of ink using a sponge.

 

Step 4: Pick pages out of an old book and rip them into small pieces. Adhere them down with matte gel and then brush distress collage medium in vintage over the top.
Step 5: Fold up your envelope and then your ready to adhere it to the front of your panel.
Step 6: Start adding all your other embellishments. Finish it off by adding your Dew Drops.
Here are some more finished project photos. I can’t wait to work on my next panel (it’s a pumpkin)

 

 

Supplies Used:
distress oxide ink ~ dried marigold, carved pumpkin
distress ink ~ ground espresso
distress spray stain ~ walnut stain, brushed pewter (on envelope)
distress paint ~ wild honey
distress collage medium ~ vintage
liquidtex ~ matte gel
sizzix ~ tim holtz thinlits #664150

Ink blending and dew drop fun

Today I’m sharing a card using ink blending and dew drops as accents. I love this technique as it adds beautiful color fast and with a stencil you choices are endless.
How to create the tile background:
1) start with your lightest shade of ink (scattered straw) and ink the center of the stencil onto cardstock with a blending brush.
2) next get your middle color (mustard seed) and start blending from where the lightest color ended out a bit more so the two colors blend.
3) finally use your darkest shade (wild honey) and ink the rest of the stencil from where the medium color ends to the end of your cardstock base.
This technique gives you a seemless color transition that is barley noticeable but has a great effect on your project.
Then you can add any of your elements that finishes off your project. In this case I used deco lines washi tape and a thin strip of mustard cardstock on the left edge of the card and then adhered DARK VANILLA DEW DROPS with liquid glue.
Products used:
scattered straw, wild honey, mustard seed distress mini cubes
blending brush
deco lines washi tape
mustard cardstock
vanilla cardstock
hand-drawn tile stencil
I hope you’ll give this a try!

Altered Canvas with Dew Drops By Diana Soling

Hi everyone! Diana here to share an owl canvas framed project today.  This is my first project as a new design team member and I’m loving using these dew drops!
SUPPLIES:
Acrylic Paint (green, orange, yellow, white)
Antique Linen distress spray
I started with the plain owl canvas and started adding the acrylic paint one color at a time with lightly blending them together as I went. Once I had the colors the way I liked I took a black sharpie and drew over the original owl shape  so it would stand out better.
I then started adding the chocolate dew drops with some liquid glue. I like using this type of glue as it really helps the drops adhere well. Once I had the whole owl covered I used the distress stain and sprayed it lightly to create a little bit of brown.
I then decided he needed something to stand on so he didn’t look like he was just floating in space. I had drew the tree branch and then using my foam blender I added the two different distress colors.
This is how he looks with the branch. It totally grounds him and makes it look like an evening sky behind him.
