Wedding Card

Hello Crafty Friends 🙂
Monika here.
Today I am pleased to inspire you for the first time.
I made a wedding card.
I always say that beauty lies in the details.
See how wonderful dew drops looks on the card

 

The order of work in the card:
1) Glue the background to the base.
2) On the distance cubes, stick a strip of paper.
3) The next layer is an openwork napkin with a full circle on it
4) We affix the flower and leaves in the upper corner,
the bride and groom at the bottom and the inscription
5) Complete the whole with dew drops
Card is ready 🙂

How to Create Perfect Highlights with Dew Drops

Special moments and perfect pictures.  Sometimes you do not need a lot of product to create a meaningful and beautiful scrapbook page.

But you do want that “oomph” to make your page pop! And that’s when you reach for Dew Drops!

My niece recently got engaged, and I am documenting the road to her wedding day! This layout features her “Save the Date” card and a few engagement photo “out takes” I swiped off Facebook and made into a collage.



I am using the Poinsettia Dew Drop Mix and the Rhapsody Collection from Photo Play for this layout.



Dew Drops add dimension and sparkle to this layout

Design Notes:  machine stitching and the name tag (Beyoutiful) from the patterned paper are fun touches!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

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!
