Ensemble - Mixed Media card with Dew Drops

Hello my Crafty Friends,

Marie-Christine with you today with a Mixed Media Card. I used some Diamonds Dew Drops with my vintage theme.

How to do

I prepared my background with some spray inks.

When it is dry, I applied some more ink with a stencil.

I used a writing stamp on my background and I did some blue ink stains.

I prepared my circles with spray inks and stencil.

Then, I stuck them on my card and I used another stencil with embossing powder.


And to finish, I colored my vintage paper doll, stuck it and I added some diamonds Dew Drops.

Hope, I inspired you with this project!

Shaker card "JOY"

Hi there!!

Here is Elisa from Italy and today I'm here with a very simple shaker card made using Dew drops "Jolly" as shaker elements.

It's really a simple card, with some 3D effect.. The Shaker Xmas ball has a double foam tape inside (so dew drops can shake); behind the sentiment joy there is a simple foam tape.
Other elements are the burlap string and the gold thin twine under the letter Y.

These are the dew drops I used:

I really hope you would like to realize a Xmas Shaker Card too!!

Have fun!

How to Make Incredibly Easy, Rustic "Snowy Night" Ornaments

Hallmark Movie playing, hot chocolate in my mug and getting my craft on!  Hello and welcome to the blog. Shelly with you today sharing an incredibly easy Christmas ornament with Dew Drops.

I used:

  • Dew Drops - Baby Girl Mix
  • Wood Round - Coaster Size
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Silver Sharpie Marker
  • Die Cut Silhouette (I am using a doe from a Tim Holtz Die)
  • Plaid Ribbon or fabric scrap
  • Eye Bolt

What I did:

  • Install eye bolt in top of ornament
  • Paint the wood round, following the contours, just inside the edge of wood round with black paint 
  • Using the silver Sharpie, trace around your painted background to clean up your line and add some sparkle
  • Glue silhouette to center of ornament
  • Add Dew Drops as desired to create your snowy night
  • Tie ribbon or fabric around base of eye bolt

So easy, but so cute!  These could even be used as gift tags - just use the silver Sharpie to write your "to" & "from" on the back.

Thanks for stopping by today - have a creative week!


Do Small Things With Great Love- Using Dew Drops in a Mixed Media Project

Hello friends!  Mary here on the blog today showing you how decorated a wooden plaque with paints, stencils and of course, Dew Drops!

I started with a blank 8x8 plaque I got on clearance (yay for a good deal).  I covered the whole thing with white gesso so I had a good surface to work on. 

I dropped blue and white paint randomly on the plaque and then used one of my favorite art sponges to twist the paint around and make a cool circular pattern on the plaque.

I grabbed dark brown and light brown paint and put some on my palette.  I sponged the dark brown paint through a cherry blossoms stencil, being careful not to use too much paint on the makeup sponge.

Then, I used a small paint brush to add highlights on the branches with the light brown paint.

For the centers of the flowers, I used Goldenberry Dew Drops for the centers of the flowers, gluing them down with strong liquid adhesive, adding a bit of dimension and bling to the piece.

After the Dew Drops dried, I painted the flower petals white with fluid acrylic paint.

To give the flowers a more realistic look, I used permanent black in to make lines on the petals, and then used a pink marker over top of the lines to give the flowers some color.

I felt the raised border on the plaque needed to stand out a bit, so I colored it gold with a leafing marker.

I added some more gold, in the form of stamping with a script stamp, on the blue painted areas, careful not to get any gold on the flower petals or white areas.

I wanted to add a nice quote, so I glued a quote sticker down (so it would be permanent) after I cut the words out individually. Then I traced around the words with a small-nibbed brown marker.

Here is the final result with some close up shots!  

My Supply List:

Keepsake Décor 8x8 Plaque

Golden Gesso- White

Golden Fluid Acrylic- Teal and White

Liquitex Heavy Body- Titanium White and Phthalocyanine Green (blue hue)
