How to make Dew Drops a focal point on your card






Today I am showing you how to make dew drops your focal point on your card.  I love how versatile dew drops are, we all use them to add a little dimension or to fill a space but I like to also make them my focal point on cards too.

I found a stamp in my stash that was perfect for adding Dew drops too. I stamped it on to super smooth card using Memento ink.


I coloured the image using Alcohol markers



I added white dew drops using some glossy accents as adhesive. I also rounded two of the corners for a funky look.


I added some script paper to a 6"x 6" card blank, as you can see I have run a black pen around the edge of the paper this stops the paper from looking like to blends in too much.


I cut a mini doillie from black card and cut in in half


I stuck this to my card and added a sentiment which I cut into two sections and mounted onto foam tape to add height.. 



I love the different heights that add texture and dimension.


I hope you liked this tutorial, you can find more of my projects at www.terrikoszler.blogspot.com

Traver Journal Page with the Robin's Nest

Hi everyone!
It's Angela here to share with you a new project made using the sparkling Robin's Nest products.
Did you remember last project of mine? It was a DIY travel journal made with the Robin's Nest Canvas paper. Well, this is its first page.
The background is mad made with a hot pink glitter paper on one side, a greenish-yellowish paper on the other side and a stripe of washi tape in the middle.

It tells about my beginning in the scrapbooking world. I took that picture for an Italian DT call and I played with it putting a mask on the face.

I left the mask unglued on on side to allow to lift it up.

I adore the english rose of the card and I put it on one side.
Moreover, to give more brightness to the right side I used a few colored dew drops.

How To Make An Iris Folding Easter Card

Hello Scrappy Friends! Tracy here today and I want to share an Easter Card with you. I recently took an Iris Folding Card Class and decided to try one on my own. I made several of these type of cards years ago and forgot how fun it was.


Robins Nest Products Used

ScraPerfect Products

Other Products
Cardstock
Stickers
Yellow Glitter Paper

You can find all sorts of different patterns just by searching online. Once you have a pattern printed out, you'll need to cut the pattern out and place it on your paper where you want the design to be.


Then you need to trace around the pattern. I only needed to trace around the top pattern of this design since I cut the bottom out of cardstock.


And now the hard part, at least for me. You have to cut out the pattern and you have to be very careful while doing so.


Then place it over top the original pattern that shows you where to place your strips of paper. I used washi tape to hold it in place. Each pattern will tell you where to place the different papers you use. This one called for 3 different patterned papers which you can see off to the right side in the photo below. I used Pink Roses on Green and 2 strips of different patterns from the Bunny Stripe Cardstock.


Cut strips of paper 1 1/2" wide and fold in half lengthwise. Using the guide provided with the pattern, start at #1 and put the appropriate strip on the pattern. The class I took told us to use scotch tape to adhere the paper strips but I used the Best Glue Ever and it was so much easier to position the strips correctly.  The photo below shows all the layers done except for the last 3. 


The center of the pattern is called the Iris and you should cover it with holographic or glitter paper. I decided to use a bright yellow glitter paper.


Once I finished it and removed the pattern from it I found that some of the glue had leaked through. I just grabbed  the Perfect Crafting Pouch and patted it all over the front of the card and then wiped it off using the Perfect Cleaning Cloth. It got rid of all the stickiness and cleaned it up beautifully.


Iris Folding can be quite bulky so I ended up popping this up on the card. I cut out the bottom pattern from the backside of the Bunny Stripe Cardstock and then cut some grasses from the Moss Green Glitter Cardstock and found some old stickers in my stash that went so well with this card. For the chicks eye I used one of the Dew Drops Originals.

Here's another look at the finished card

Girly pinwheels

Today I am coming to show two pin wheels I made, they will be perfect for small girls (they are love pink)


I have used: 


First I found templates of pinwheels and printed them in white cardstock
Then I cut same from my pink paper
All you need to do is glue them together and put a brad to keep all your wings together
When both of my pinwheels were ready I started to decorate them with different embellishments, in the end I added barbecue sticks and they are ready.


We can put them in cupcakes or in the pots with plants.

Hope you like them, have a nice weekend!!!
