Oh Happy Day- A Spring Dew Drops Tag

Hi crafty friends! Mary here on the Chattering Robins Blog, with a Spring themed tag tutorial.

I started off with a craft tag that I cut my self, which I covered in white gesso to ensure that the colors I swirled on were as bright as they could be.  

I used my trusty sponge applicator to swirl on unbleached titanium, pink, turquoise, and yellow (great spring colors!) in an abstract pattern around the tag.

I grabbed some pretty washi tapes with vines on them and placed them down on the left side of the tag.  If they don't stick well, there's no problem with gluing the washi tapes down so you don't have to worry about them popping up later.

I used a makeup sponge to dab on dots with a piece of punchinella and white paint, to brighten up the tag a bit.

I grabbed a background stamp and grey ink and stamped around the tag.  Then I grabbed medium blue ink and stamped a stitch-like stamp in random places.  I dried it all with my heat tool so the ink didn't smear.

I stamped the roses I chose onto Bristol paper and fussy cut them out.  I kept them white to contrast with the colored background. I inked around the sentiment and the tag, then I glued the flowers down with white craft glue, along with a sentiment I printed off of Etsy.  

To highlight the white dots, I traced around the edges with a gold gel pen and used the punchinella as a guide.

I chose spring colored Dew Drops to place around the tag.  I glued them down with craft glue.

I had a fun trim border in greens and blues that I cut to size and tied it through the punched hole to complete the tag.

Here are the closeups of this tag.  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and want to make a Spring Dew drops tag for yourself!

To Inspire, Dream & Imagine: A Colorful Tag With Dew Drops

Hello there creative friends!
Welcome to the Chattering Robin's blog.

Michelle here today to share with you a colorful tag I made recently
using watercolors, stamps and beautiful Dew Drops as embellishments.

The first step, to ensure I had a solid base to work with, I applied a thin layer of clear gesso over the surface of the tag, using a spatula to apply.

Once dry, I added liberal amounts of  water over the surface, using a a brush, and then began adding the watercolor paint to the wet surface.

Once the watercolor had set, I used some Distress Oxide Ink in Weathered Wood around the edges of the tag, and stamped a crackle finish, book page lettering, and word stamps, with archival ink.

I then embellished the tag using mini flowers on the diagonal, applied with the Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect, and set with glue.

Finishing the look, I added yarn fibers to the tag top.

A simple, colorful, affirmation tag!

Thanks so much for visiting us here today on the blog!

Dressing Up Simple Easter Cards With Dew Drops

Hello, everyone!

It's Nancy here with a new project!
This is a quick and easy Easter Card idea!

Here's what I did:

I began by creating some pastel colored card bases.
Then I printed and cut some pretty Easter printables.
Or you could use stickers or journaling cards.
Then I went in and fancied them up with Dew Drops!

The extra sparkle and dimension make it more than just a regular printed card.

Where the flowers were too small for the Dew Drops,
I added a little drop of Glossy Accents for a similar effect.
Finally, I added some Stickles around the flowers.

I did the same thing on this card.

I added Dew Drops to the flower centers. 

I also added one large black Dew Drop to the wheel,
and three pearls to the corner of the card.

Other Materials Used:
Cardstock - Recollections;
Stickles: Star Dust;
Ranger Glossy Accents;
Digital Images - Gecko Galz.

Robin's Nest Products Used:

Fresh Mowed Grass Dew Drops

Sunflower Dew Drops

Black/White/Silver Dew Drops
