Mini Dew Drops in my Art Journal

Hello Crafty Friends,

Marie-Christine with you today!!! I have got a new Art Journal with black pages. So, I thought it was a good idea to added some mini Dew Drops inside.

How to do

I made my background with blue acrylic paint.

I mixed 2 colors in the middle.

When the paint was dry, I used a stencil with some gold modelling paste at the left and the right.

I found a butterfly image on Pinterest, cut and adhered it in the center. I made the title with gold modelling paste and a stencil. Finally, I added some beautiful mini Dew Drops and some little stars with blue Glitter paper.

Here the result!

CAS Diamond Dew Drop Rainbow Cards

Karen here to share some clean and simple cards using Diamond Dew Drops.  They really are the star of the show.  I know you will find these cards are super fast to make with stunning results.

1.  Assemble three Diamond Dew Drops to form a cube shape. Use clear drying liquid adhesive to glue them to white card stock.

(3 Diamond Dew Drops will form a cube)

2. When dry, carefully cut them apart.
TIP: Although it is not necessary, I found it helpful to create embellishments first. Then I could move them around on my project and find the perfect placement.

3. Stamp a simple birthday design onto the card base with black ink.  Adhere the Diamond Dew Drops tumbling down diagonally across the card like confetti.

(4 Diamond Dew Drops will form a large diamond shape)

Assemble four Diamond Dew Drops to form a large diamond shape. Use clear drying liquid adhesive to glue them to white card stock. When dry, carefully cut them apart. Stamp a simple sentiment onto the card base with black ink. Add the diamonds vertically down the left side of the card and adhere in place.

Time To Prepare for Halloween Goodies with the Robin's Nest

It's almost time to prepare for those goblins coming to your house and classroom parties (to say nothing of work parties)!  I want to show you a simple bag to put your treats in that everyone will love!



Layer the pumpkins on top of each other.  Mine had sticky dimensional tape on the back, but I still use glue.  Otherwise they don't hold well enough to stay put through events and use.
Arrange pumpkins on the bag.
Add Ghost Little Friend
Embellish with Orange and Brown Mini Dew Drops, and you're ready to stuff with treats.

Hope you'll play along and have some fun for the upcoming holiday!

5 Fun & Creative Ways to Use Dew Drops in Your Scrapbooking

Hello and welcome to the blog.  Shelly with you today sharing 5 fun & creative ways to use Dew Drops on your scrapbook layouts.  I have chosen 5 of my favorite layouts and Dew Drop techniques and put them all in one place with links back to the original posts for more detailed instructions.


To create the background for this layout, I hand wrote the lyrics to "She's a Rainbow" with a black pen, randomly highlighted words and then used Primary Dew Drop Mix to make it pop!


For this layout, I chose the Water Dew Drops Mix - the mix of colors and sizes make perfect embellie clusters all on their own, but also looks great mixed with sequins and other small embellishments.

Original Post for this layout here:  Wine O'Clock


Do you scrap a lot of sports? Then you need Dew Drops in your stash.  Create customized team color combinations for your layout.  

I am more nerd than athlete, I used Dew Drops and Diamond Dew Drops to create the house colors of Hogwarts on this layout (I am team Hufflepuff!) 

Original post for this layout here:  Spellbound - Harry Potter Layout


Give me some punches and Dew Drops and I can create a one-of-a-kind die cut embellishments for my layouts!

Black Tear Drops make perfect watermelon seeds for these simple die cuts made using circle punches.  White Tear Drops make great seeds for lemon, lime and orange slices!

Original post for this layout here:  Summer Watermelon Layout

5. Shaker Box

A mix of Dew Drops, Mini Dew Drops, Diamond Dew Drops, Tear Drops and Sequins is a perfect and colorful mix for shaker box elements!

This shaker box was made from an upcycled candy box.

See original post here:  Shaker Box

Dew Drops may very well be the most versatile embellishment in your scrap stash!

Have a creative week!
