Create A Shaker using Dew Drops!

Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing a vintage card featuring a shaker element created using the amazing Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest!

For my shaker I used the following Dew Drops:
 Spring Blooms
These shakers are so fun to create and Dew Drops are perfect for them because they have no static like some other items used such as glitter.

Other Supplies Needed:
Designer Card Stock
Circle punch or die

Start by choosing a sheet of designer card stock with a focal picture such as the bird I used here. Use a circle punch or die in the proper size that will completely cover the back and allow your focal to be seen. You can purchase pre-made bubbles to create these however for mine I actually used some recycled packaging!
Fill the bubble with your choice of Dew Drops.
Add elements to the paper such as the butterfly added on mine.
Use a strong adhesive to attach the back to the plastic and there you go!
I created mine to make this Vintage Shaker Card.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog and viewing my post today! I hope that you are inspired to grab your supplies and create something beautiful too!
The Robin's Nest Drew Drops are an amazing embellishment for any crafting project. They are available in a huge variety of colors as well as some different shapes and sizes!! the Robin's Nest also offers many other embellishments such as those used here!
They are conveniently available online:

Hello Crafty Friends,

Marie-Christine with you today with a quick and simple tutorial. Do you love Tags? You can use them for bookmark or to offer with a gift.

How to do

First, I made my background on watercolour paper with Brushos.

I used a stencil with Gold Texture Paste.

Then, when it was dry, I stuck a piece of glitter paper and splashed some black ink on the background.

I stuck my butterflies (Pinterest), title and the Dew Drops.

Here the result!

Fun and Creative Storage Ideas for Dew Drops

For most people, January is the time to purge, organize and make a fresh start.  And if you are anything like me, your craft room is a constant work in progress when it comes to organization. Today I am sharing some of favorite ways to store, display and transport my collection of Dew Drops.

I keep a footed, pressed glass dessert dish on my craft table filled with a mixture of all colors and varieties of Dew Drops, Mini Dew Drops, Diamond Dew Drops, and Tear Drops.  When one of my containers gets to a just a few Dew Drops left, into the dish they go!

I love having them so easily accessible (I use them on just about everything I make) and it is a colorful inspiration when I am creating.

My favorite storage and transportation solution are these clear plastic pouches- I have them lined up on a shelf - I can see what’s in them and it's so easy to toss the containers into my bag for crops and retreats.

These are Buddy Bags from Totally Tiffany

Rectangle Zippered Pouch from Thirty One

And finally - this beautiful vintage bowl that belonged to my great-grandmother.  I love using vintage dishes in my craft room.  I like to have my supplies out where I can see what I have and be able to easily grab them while I am working. But I also want to fill my space with pretty things that inspire.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - hope I have given you some fresh ideas for storage.


Hello Lovely- Small Art with Dew Drops

Hello lovely crafters!  Mary here on the Chattering Robins blog with a tutorial on how to create this colorful plaque.

I started with a 4x6 piece of sturdy chipboard, spreading white gesso on it with a used gift card to create texture.

Then, since I love texture so much, I scribbled into the still wet gesso with the other end of a paintbrush.

Since texture is the word of the day, I decided to add drywall tape to the mix after the gesso was dry.  It creates a cool square pattern that will look awesome when paint is added.

I had these cute rubber words, so I glued them onto the drywall tape with sturdy glue.

Since I wanted paint to stick to the slick surface of the words, I painted them with white gesso and let them dry thoroughly.

I sprayed several acrylic art sprays onto the piece, then added some water to spread the paint around.

Gotta love drips of color!

After the spray dried most of the way, I blotted the rest off with a tissue.

The pictures above show me dripping on fluid acrylic paints, blotting the excess paint off the drywall tape and adding back in some white paint onto the drywall tape.  I did dry the paints in between so they didn't blend together to much.

I colored a silver heart with a gold paint pen and colored in the word Love with black acrylic paint.

That gold paint pen made for a wonderful edge.

Running with the gold theme, I splattered gold paint onto the piece with a fan brush. 

Finally, I added Sun Shower Dew Drops, to make the piece really pop!

Here are some closeups of this fun project:
