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!

Knotty or Nice CAS Card

Hello Crafters,
It’s Karen here to share a little Christmas inspiration.  This is a great card to make for that last minute function because it is super quick.  CAS is best if you plan to give handmade cards for the holiday season and have a long list of family and friends.  This is a good design to mass produce efficiently and requires relatively few supplies.   Let’s get stamping!

Directions:
1.  Use black ink to stamp a random collage of swirls & flourishes onto a white card base. Make sure to rotate the stamp and overlap the edges with the design. If you plan to include a sentiment, make sure you leave some empty space for it. 

2. Stamp the sentiment with black ink. Set aside to dry.

3. Next, plan the placement of the Tear Drops (aka light bulbs) evenly spaced along different sides of the swirls. This is a temporarily step for placement only so no glue is used at this time. When you are satisfied with their positions, mark each light socket lightly with a pencil. Next, carefully remove the Tear Drops and use a fine tip black marker to draw a small rectangular socket where you left each pencil mark. Sketch them extending on one side of the wire only. Also, tilt them and vary the angle of the sockets for a more realistic appearance.

4.  Add Tear Drops in primary colors to the sockets with liquid adhesive.  To finish off, draw plugs at the ends of the strings of lights.


(TIP: Attach some Tear Drops away from the flourish to appear as loose spare bulbs.  Use a silver gel pen to draw the metal base of the light bulb.)




Supplies:
white card base
black ink pad
flourish stamps
sentiment stamps
fine tip black marker
liquid adhesive

Cute last minute box modifications with Dew Drops

Can you believe it’s almost Christmas?  I am way behind on my wrapping.  I was thinking of some cute ways to quickly modify gift card boxes and wanted to share one with you.

I hope you’re not as far behind as I am in wrapping gifts.  Somehow Christmas snuck up on my this year.  I was trying to think of fast and cute ways to modify gift boxes.  I saw this cute wooden patterned box with a plain burlap bow and was inspired to try a quick alteration to make it a little fancier!
Here is all you need, your plain gift box with a burlap bow, liquid adhesive and diamond dew drops in red and green.  It would be equally cute with the same idea using red and green teardrops for a softer star.  I always add the glue to the back of the dew drops and then attach.  It seems to work easier for me in terms of placement accuracy that way!  And I always lay my design out on the work surface before I start, like the photo below!

I hope you enjoyed this super quick and cute box modification using Dew Drops!  See you next year! Have a happy holiday season spent with those you love!
