Can't Create Without Passion-

Hello everyone and welcome to the Robins Nest blog today. I'm Erika Taylor and I'm very excited to be a part of the Design Team for the next while sharing my creations using The Robins Nest products.

I have loved those little Dew Drops since I first saw them and after using them for a while now, I've learned that you can make almost anything with them. From Spiders to flowers, Flourishes to Christmas Stockings and everything in between.

Today I'm sharing with you a card  created using some beautiful The Robins Nest Papers to boot. Did you KNOW that The Robins Nest has papers? Well consider yourself well informed now hehe.

The first photo shows how easy it is to substitute pearls or rhinestones for those wonderful Dew Drops. I created a perfect little line using a ruler to make sure. I use Helmar Gemstone Glue for all of my Dew Drop applications.  I used the mini Pink Dew Drops here


Next you can use the little Tear Dew Drops to create beautiful little flowers. I love this shade of turquoise that comes in the Tear Dew Drop Stack.


For the card itself, I've used a few of my favorite The Robins Nest Papers. Perhaps an odd pairing, but I think it works so wonderfully well.The background is the beautiful Classic Glitter Swirl in pink. This pattern comes in quite a few colors and is just perfect for that little bit of glitter. I also used the Glitter Blue Animal print and Silver Fleur de Li papers. I love this combination of pinks, teals and blacks. Very purdy indeed. So here is the finished card


When created a project whether a card, layout or altered piece, don't be afraid to mix papers up that you wouldn't regularly pair together. Sometimes the outcome can be wonderful.

Well, that is it for me today. Make sure you let me know what you think of my first The Robins Nest project and what types of projects you'd like to see from me in the future using The Robins Nest products.

Until Next time
