Obsidian Diamomds

Hi everyone!!

Here is Elisa from Italy and today I show you this new tag where I used the Dew Drops Obsidian Diamond.

Here are some more pictures with some details:

As you can see, I used crayons on Diamonds to make them "grunge": because diamonds are black, I decided to use the white crayon.

How To: Simple and Charming Floral Accents with Dew Drops

Hello and welcome to the blog.  Shelly with you today sharing my floral accents created with Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest.

These DIY embellishment are fun and easy to make - I created quite a few this week to save for future scrapbook pages, cards, tags and ATC's.

What I used:

What I did (for the dandelion):

  • Using clear, pearl and white Dew Drops in different sizes, fill white felt circle
  • Embellie Gellie has become my best friend for working with Dew Drops - it makes application so fast and easy!
  • Assemble Dandelion on card base
  • Add a few more Dew Drops of different sizes for the dandelion seeds being blown away
  • Hand write your sentiment "make a wish" along stem
  • Add a Heart Dew Drop

What I did (for Flower):

  • Line the outer edge of felt circle with glue
  • Apply Tear Drops around circle, touching each other
  • Apply another line of glue across bottom edge of Tear Drops
  • Apply another row of Tear Drops, repeat a 3rd time
  • Add a large Dew Drop to center

I love creating my own custom embellishments and Dew Drops can be used in so many different ways!

Thanks for stopping by the blog - have a creative week!

Love Of Spring Bohemian Inspired Canvas How To

Hello, welcome to the 
Chattering Robin's blog.

Michelle here today, sharing an easy,
colorful Bohemian inspired canvas board
featuring Dew Drops from
The Robin's Nest.

The size of canvas board I chose was 4x4.
I used a variety of gelato's, stencils & texture paste 
to create the colorful background.

I added mini bright colored flowers in the shape of a heart, 
and randomly glued "shaved ice" in pink throughout the design, as well as adding it to the rope rosebud for the center of the lace dangle.

Following a similar random pattern, I did the same using a variety of sizes of Dew Drops from the Easter & Riverside Collections.

And placing the Dew Drops was made easy using 
Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect.

To finish, I added a single twisted roping 
around the entire canvas.

And there you have it. A perfect way to add
some "spring" cheer to any space,
to chase the winter blues away.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
While here, be sure to check out other galleries
featuring projects created by the talented design time,
using exclusive products from The Robin's Nest.

Heart Love Card With Diamond Drops by Melinda

Hello Crafty friends!
I hope your week is going wonderful and you were able to enjoy a little “love” yesterday! Today I am sharing a card I created for my beloved for Valentine’s Day. Here’s what I designed.

Dew Drops Heart Card
heart card 1b
I started with a standard A2 sized card base. I used some black cardstock. I then
cut a mat of white cardstock and then a mat using
some patterned paper from the Black Currant DCWV Stack.

Robins Nest Dew Drops Card Project Idea
Next I went to work designing my pretty heart. I designed it with my dew drops in mind
and used my craft cutter to cut it out.I cut out the layers in white
cardstock for the scallop and the decorative top. Pink for the outer layer and then
black for the inner layer. I added some pretty diamond drops around the border
of the flourished die cut and then added a mix of pink, light pink dewdrops
as well as some pretty black diamond drops.

I then colored in the black layer with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to give it that shimmer.

Robins Nest Dew Drops Card Project Idea
I then used a stamp from the MayMayMadeIt Stamp Set: All In Love.
I used my black Aladine Pigment Ink to stamp the sentiment.
I love the clean crisp image it gave.

Robins Nest Dew Drops Card Project Idea
Here’s a closer look at how I used some of the pretty black diamond drops
as decorative accents on the top and bottom of my stamped sentiment.

Robins Nest Dew Drops Card Project Idea
I finished off the card by adding a strip of organza ribbon and a pretty little double bow.
I added another pink dew drop to the center of the card for just a little extra touch.

appreciate it even though it is a tad “girly”…lol!

An altered storage tray with Dew Drops

Hello everybody, it's Libeeti here, to share with you another storage tray I've made using the Robin's Nest Dew Drops to embellish it.
I took a cardboard tray I've had for a long time. I once got it filled with yummy sweets and kept the tray. You can never know when you'll re-use it...
I wanted a solution to all my Lindy's Gang sprays, but one that will enable me to see in a glance all the colors to choose from, so this tray was just perfect.
I opened the folds and covered it with gesso and then added some texture with stencil and modeling paste.
Then I colored it with several Lindy's Gang's sprays to get a shabby chic look.
Next stage was the decoration - lace flowers and trim, again colored with more sprays. 
The cherry on top was adding the Robin's Nest Dew Drops! they just give any project that special touch. Love them!
Here are close-ups on the finished tray:

Now I have a beautiful shabby chic style tray to store my sprays. I'm a happy girl :).

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you next time with another fab project using the wonderful Dew Drops.
