Nuvo Madness…

Good Morning beautiful people!!  I’ve got something to show youuuuu. It’ll knock your socks offfff. Or maybe I’m just easily impressed.

Anyway, have you seen or tried the Nuvo Crystal Drops yet?  Years and years ago, you’ve probably forgotten, but I tried to accomplish this very thing with Stickles.  It was fun and sparkly and such, but it was a bit of a fail because the dots I tried to create collapsed and didn’t keep their beautiful, glorious, round shape.  However, Nuvo Crystal Drops DO!!  And even better in my opinion, is that they aren’t glittery.


The first thing I tried with them was the various sizes of “enamel” dots and that worked beautifully so I also tried creating some flourish-y designs with them and while the Nuvo held up it’s end of the bargain, my personal flourish drawing skills need some work.  But I’m encouraged to try again.  Printing a flourish from the Interwebs and tracing over it onto some clear acetate (think leftover packaging from some scrappy goodies) seems like a good place to start.

But then I got to imagining.  How might it look to actually color in some stamped designs and cut them out like individual embellishments?  So I had to try.  For this first card, I used this stamp here by Carabelle Studio.  It worked pretty good even though the Nuvo ran together in the flower centers.


Then I tried some larger, more open stamp designs.  I’m so delighted with the results!  I just squeezed out the Nuvo to fill the open areas of the stamp, left them overnight to dry, cut them out and assembled my card the next day.


For the brown flower centers, because I didn’t have any brown Nuvo Drops, I just colored the cardstock with brown marker and then covered over it with Glossy Accents.


You’ll notice how perfectly my little enamel dots match?  Because they’re the same Nuvo Drops too!  And the colors are so fun and vibrant and there are even MORE available than the dozen-plus that Lori has in the store.  And maybe she’ll order in more colors?  I wouldn’t hate that!


Thanks for stopping by today…If I’ve enabled your NEED to own at least a few colors of the Nuvo Crystal Drops then my job here is done!

Edited and added by Lori ~~ We had every color of the glossy Nuvo drops in the store … but in such a quick time they sold out.  They are expected to be restocked at the store in just over a week.  By request, we have ordered every color of Nuvo drops … glossy, pearl, and glitter.
