Watercolor Snow Flake Medallion Card

Happy Thursday and Happy February crafty friends,

Hope you are staying warm! Today I am sharing a fun card I created with some pretty Dew Drops, Diamond Drops and Tear Drops from the Robin’s Nest.
Here is a picture of my finished card. It is a standard A2 size. I used white cardstock for my base. I then cut a mat from some purple cardstock I had in my stash for a mat.

Next, I set to work using some fun inks from the Aladine range and created the watercolor background. I used a piece of watercolor paper and three of their inks. After I was finished making my background, I set to work creating my medallion.

Here’s a closer look at my medallion. I created the scalloped circle so that it would fit the pretty tear drop shaped dew drops. I then created the circle layers to fit the diamond drops and then the pretty little snowflake. I used some foam tape between the layers to give them a little lift.

Here’s a closer look showing some of the clear dew drops I used as accents. I love how you can see the color underneath through them.

I then created the little smile title and used my silver ink to color it. The border is a Martha Stewart punch. I accented the pre-cut holes from the border with some silver dew drops and some stickles.

You can gladly pin this image. You can also see here that I used some Stickles between my tear drops and on my snowflake.

Here’s another look at my finished card.

Embellishments for a tag

Hi everyone!!

Here is Elisa and today I'm going to share with you my new project... I use the wonderful dew drops by The Robin's Nest for creating some shining embellishment for my last mixed media tag...

Take a piece of white burlap and using your favourite glue, create a square with dew drops (I created a 2x2 clear square, a 3x3 light pink square, a 4x4 pink square and a 5 red square, as you can see in the picture)
When the glue is totaly dried, take some wire (1mm) and cut 4 pieces for every square... we have to create a frame to put outside the dew drop square.
How to fix together these 4 pieces of wire? Take a thinner wire (0,2mm) and twist it around the corners; help you with some washi tape for keeping the four main wires in the right place while you are fixing them with the thinner wire.
When your metal square is ready use the glue and stick it to the burlap.

Hope you enjoy these embellishments!!
Till next project


Valentine's Card

Hello Everyone! Jenn here, and I am sharing my Valentine's day card using Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest!

Dew Drops Used:
I used the light and dark red

Poinsettia Dew Drops

Additional Supplies:
White card blank 5.5"X5.5"
Heart Die
Printed cardstock

Start by cutting your heart shape die from the front of the card blank. Save the cut-out piece to adhere to the front.

Using adhesive tape or paper safe glue attach a piece of printed cardstock cut to 4"x4" under the cut-out heart so that the pattern shows.

 Next, using very little adhesive glue around the heart shape, press the die cut heart inside of the cut-out heart. Cut a thin strip from remaining printed cardstock and adhere to the bottom as an accent piece.

Next, use adhesive that is paper safe or The Robin's Nest Dew Dew Glue to adhere the Dew Drops around the outside of the heart.

Finally, add a sentiment stamp to the top (Happy Valentine's)

Thanks so much for viewing my post today! Remember to check out the entire Dew Drops collection at The Robin's Nest!

Hello dear Robin's Nest fans, it's Libeeti here, sharing with you my new storage tray I've made for my Robin's Nest Dew Drops.

I decorated it with patterned papers from my stash and Dew Drops.

And here's my tray, full of all these yummy dew drops, just ready to pick and play with:
Now, that is something that makes a crafty girl happy :).

How To Add Pizazz To An Old Picture Frame

Hello there! Welcome to Chattering Robin's blog. 

Michelle here today to share how I turned a very old picture frame, into a bling pizazzed frame, to hold a precious treasure of a photograph. This is an extremely easy project, especially if your frame base is a flat base.

For this project I selected a variety of color and shapes in the Dew Drop collections to add to my frame.

You can find the color selections via link below each product photo.

You will also need a permanent bonding mixed media glue, and a "pick up" tool is helpful in placing the Dew Drops in place. I used Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect.

To begin, I cleaned the frame and glass with window cleaner, and sat the photo and glass to the side. I thoroughly dried the frame before applying the glue and the Dew Drops.

I used a very small amount of glue per each Dew Drop, beginning with the Tear Drop shape, alternating the Sea Glass colors in the blue & light aqua shades, point side in.

Once all Tear Drops were in place, I alternated mini blue Dew Drops from the Riverside Dew Drop collection, and the very, very light pink hue larger size from the Easter collection, at the inside of the frame, to complete the look.

That is it, simple and easy. Just look at the wow factor of the frame now.
