Floating floral cup

Hi Terri here, thanks for stopping by to join me for today blog post.  The project I am sharing was inspired by a cup and saucer I found in a local charity shop and with Mothers day not too far away (here in the UK) I wanted to create something very different, I hope you like it.

For my project I used the following Robins Nest materials

I started by gathering the materials I would need 

I then used some pliers to bend my fork into shape

and tested the angles to see if things looked pleasing to the eye

I stuck the prongs of my fork to the saucer using hot glue, it's best to add several layers of glue allowing each to go cold before adding the next.

I added some coins to give a bit of stability, nobody wants their work of art to tumble over and break after all

I then glued the end of the fork into the cup using a fast dry glue and then added a layer of hot glue on don't want to much weight this end or it will topple over

I cut several flowers from the bunny stripe card stock and used a balling tool and foam mat to give dimension to them, as you can see I am using the reverse side of the card facing upwards

I then started to glue the flowers with very small amounts of hot glue, starting in the mouth of the cup and then down the fork, I wanted it to look like the flowers are flowing from the cup

I then continued to place flowers on the saucer

I die cut 2 butterflies and gave them some shape

I used dew dew glue to add dew drops to the center of some of the flowers

I stuck one butterfly on the edge of the saucer

and another on top of the cup

and here it is, sitting pretty in my fireplace

I hope you like this project and are inspired to try it yourself. Have a great weekend x


Hey there Scrappy Friends!
Lisa here today to share a layout I created using Robin's Nest goodies from the store
I used Ochre Glitter Cardstock for my base.
Then I started layering papers that matched that and pulled colors from my photo. When I create a layout, I always try to pull colors from the photo as that seems to make the photo "POP".
Using my Cameo, I cut some clouds from Water Glitter Swirl and stitched them in place:
I layered (from bottom to top):
Mocha Trail Glitter Cardstock: This paper is gorgeous with some gold glitter! Plus, gold is so in right now!
Angelic Diagonal Specialty Paper- This paper is so cool!

Then I added a torn strip of the backside of Honeycomb Fleur Cardstock. I topped that off with a banner strip of the Water Glitter Swirl just to get a bit more blue on my layout.

I fussy cut the Silver Glitter Journal out and wrote my journaling on that. I added some tangled thread and then added a Maple Leaf Paper Clip.

Finally I fussy cut 3 of the small compasses from Men's Plaid/Compass Cardstock and added them

Then I topped it off with some mist spatters and a piece of wood veneer.

Thanks for taking time out of your day and sharing it with us!
Happy scrapping my friends!

Pink and Frilly Valentine

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and I am back as a guest designer today for the Robin's Nest! I want to share a project I created for a Valentine's Day card swap I am in on Instagram. The thing is my swap partner doesn't know (I hope) that this little gift box will be traveling with the card I created for her. :-)

I started with this little box that my hubby received a knife in. I loved how it is covered in a very nice black linen type of cardstock.

I started by cutting a piece of Rosy Stripe Cardstock to fit the lid of the box. I also inked the edges of the cardstock with a hot pink ink. I folded a 4" doily in half and kinda gathered it to create a ruffle and adhered it off center on the lid. 

Here is a hint add just a little glue to the folded edge of the doily. This way you can add tulle, Rosy Ribbon, pearl sprays, thread, lace, etc. under the doily.

I added glue to the center of a cardstock doily that I had received from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts on top of the doily along with an image of a little girl I found on the internet. I printed and fussy cut her out. I created flowers and leaves with diecuts and punches from the following cardstocks: Valentine StripeMoss Green Glitter CardstockSummer Pink Glitter Cardstock, and Vanilla Fluer Glitter Cardstock. I shaped the flowers with a stylus and added buttons, sequin and Dew Drops.

The gold heart is punched from Gold Glitter Chipboard which I added a sentiment and pearlized pins from my stash. The inside of the box I lined with Summer Pink Glitter Cardstock...which I embossed and I also used Rosy Stripe Cardstock.

It is hard to see in this photo but I also used two of the pink Hearts Dew Drops above the cream colors flower. I think the box tuned out perfect which I hope my swap partner thinks so too. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
