First Robin Nest Design Team Project

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping in today.  I'm very excited to be a part of the Design Team for The Robins Nest over the next while and sharing my creations with you.

I have loved those little Dew Drops since I first saw them and after using them for a while now, I've learned that you can make almost anything with them. From Spiders to flowers, Flourishes to Christmas Stockings and everything in between.

Today I'm sharing with you a card  created using some beautiful The Robins Nest Papers to boot. Did you KNOW that The Robins Nest has papers? Well consider yourself well informed now hehe.

The first photo shows how easy it is to substitute pearls or rhinestones for those wonderful Dew Drops. I created a perfect little line using a ruler and my trusty Helmar Gemstone Glue.  I used the Mini Pink Dew Drops here.

Next you can see I used the little Tear Dew Drops to create beautiful little flowers. I love the shade of turquoise that comes in the Tear Dew Drop Stack.

For the card itself, I've used a few of my favorite The Robins Nest Papers. Perhaps an odd pairing, but I think it works so wonderfully well.The background is the beautiful Classic Glitter Swirl in pink. This pattern comes in quite a few colors and is just perfect for that little bit of glitter. I also used the Glitter Blue Animal print and Silver Fleur De Li papers. I love this combination of pinks, teals and blacks. Very purdy indeed. So here is the finished card

When created a project whether a card, layout or altered piece, don't be afraid to mix papers up that you wouldn't regularly pair together. Sometimes the outcome can be wonderful. Whodda thunk an animal print and Fleur Des-Li's would work so well together???

Well, that is it for me today. Make sure you let me know what you think of my first The Robins Nest project and what types of projects you'd like to see from me in the future using The Robins Nest products.

Don't forget to enter my blog candy too. There will be some wonderful Dew Drops included in it. You can find the blogiversary post HERE

Until Next time
