Hello crafty friends!
Daksha here! My today’s post is with Little Birdie 3D Pearl Drops.
This month Itsy Bitsy’s blog challenge is all about Little Birdie 3D Pearl drops. You can create anything featuring these lovely pearl colours. You will find many inspirations right here at the blog by me and my DT friends. Here is my take on the 3D liquid pearls. After much thought I tried to do something which I haven’t done from long time.. As I love to make cards and envelopes, I decided to do that. I made, not one or two but 8 envelopes using these!
My envelopes are totally handmade from scratch. The size is according to our new currency sizes of ₹ 500/- or ₹ 2000/- .
#1- In this envelope I have taken iris cardstock base and did stenciling. Then I used 3D Pearl Drops to make the background. Believe me, it looks so pretty in real. The images cannot capture the true beauty!
Then I have decorated using Little Birdie chipboard ‘Blessed’ and one stamp. Colored the baby image and mounted it on scalloped circle die cuts. Finally did the matting on black cardstock and light blue handmade envelope base. Here we can add more glitter and other things but I wanted to keep my main focus on 3D Pearl Drops so I kept it plain.
#2– For this envelope, first I drew horizontal lines with pencil on an iris carsdtock. The lines were drawn at 1/4″ distance. I did it how it looks on the card, you can do your own variation. Then using Pearl Drops I did made a pattern. Next, I used stamped and colored flower images for decorating the card. I have used white Pearl Drops in few places like small enamel dots. Used one stamped sentiment. Finally, I layered it with striped pattern paper and blue handmade envelope base. Oh yes here the pollen of the flower is highlighted with black Pearl Drops.
#3– For this envelope I did stenciling with distress oxides and highlighted few places with different Pearl Drop colours. Here I have used fussy cut image from Little Birdie pattern paper and circle die cut. The sentiment is from Little Birdie chipboard. I distressed the edges with black distress oxide.
#4– It’s more or less similar to the previous envelopes, just used a different stencil and different pattern with Pearl Drop colours. Use a sentiment chipboard and decorated it with stamped images, colours, fussy cut images and black diecut frame.
#5– In this envelope, first I created a light stenciled background and used one butterfly fussy cut image and black Pearl Drop to create the effect of rhinestones. I used few white pearls and also stamped sentiment directly on the cardstock. Did layering with black cardstock and a handmade envelope.
#6– This is another good way to use 3D Pearl Drops. First I stamped an image on the iris cardstock with black versafine ink. Then filled the centre part with Pearl Drops. I have used red and green here. Gave horizontal scoring line till 1/2″ from bottom and used a sentiment.
#7-In this envelope I tried glitter on 3D Pearl Drops and believe me the effect was so amazing! All the swirl parts in glitter dots. I had a matching butterfly die, so I have used butterfly diecut with vellum base. Used one stamped sentiment and the same layering and base of handmade envelope. And my envelope is ready!!
#8- Here I masked the top and bottom, distressed and spritzing it with water. It gives that nice water droplet effect. Next, after removing the masking paper I did some stamping. You can select any flower, stem or leaf design which you can highlight with 3D Pearl Drop. So that’s another way to use Pearl Drop!
