Bead Duo Cards

This was super fun. I used the Green and Pink Bead duos for this card. The pink bead duo comes with clear micro beads which are in the center of the solid edge flower and pink seed/bungle beads.

The colors for this card are Brushed Gold and Pretty in Pink. This card is made with the Always set. The background images were stamped with Gold Encore but not embossed. The Bird, Solid edge flower and saying was stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with Gold powder. Kraft taffeta ribbon, Word window and Modern Label punches, Crystal effects.

This card was simple and the beads add a detailed touch! The heart from Always stamp set was stamped on Pretty in pink C/S with Regal rose ink and then I added clear micro beads to the center with crystal effects and then I added silver micro beads to the outer outline of the heart. I just started adding a small silver bead on each end of the modern label punch. I really like the way this looks instead of a brad which seems a little large sometimes!

The C/S used was : Vanilla, Pretty in Pink and the new Sending Love DS specialty paper. The greeting was stamped with silver encore ink.(teeny tiny wishes set) Punches: word window, modern label Ribbon-Pink taffeta- Big shot with the new Perfect Polka Dots folder for the background!

Today's Card uses the SU Silver beads! Micro and Bungle. The SU bead duo assortments are perfect for Cards & Scrapbook pages! Offering no bulk for mailing too! They come in 6 different colors: Pink, Blue, Green, Orange, Red and Silver. I really love these beads and the unique look they offer so I'm going to try to post a project using them over each of the next few days! How fun! I embossed the flowers from Fifth Ave. Floral set on shimmery C/S with versa mark ink and silver powder. I used SU markers to color the flowers- Markers: Apricot, Banana, Pumpkin, Mustard. The aqua painter was used to fill in the darker colors, direct from the pen. Cut flowers out. I stamped the background with the new Vintage vogue set from the Occasions mini with silver Encore ink. The greeting is from Teeny tiny wishes set stamped with silver Encore ink. I also stamped with Silver & Black inks Punpkin Pie C/S and punched out the wide oval. Punch out the label with Brushed silver C/S and use the white gel pen for the dots.The centers of the flowers are the Micro Silver beads applied with Crystal effects and the corner and variously applied beads are the Bungle small beads applied with Crystal effects!

My final beaded project is this cute little purse necklace. The pattern for this is the die cut purse boxes that Stampin' Up! had a couple of years ago...remember those? I traced the die cut purse box on a sheet of copy paper and then ran it through my scanner. I printed the image much smaller and used the cut out to trace my little purse on a sheet of Pretty in Pink Cardstock. I stamped over the whole traced image with the Floral background stamp inked with Rose Red classic ink. After cutting out the purse I traced around it on a sheet of 12 x 12 Sticky Sheet. When I cut out the traced sticky sheet I made sure to cut outside the traced lines because you want the sticky sheet purse a little larger. I scored and folded the cardstock purse and then removed the sticky sheet backing. Be sure to adhere the bottom cardstock to the sticky sheet and then the sides one at a time folded and the flap last so that your folds are correctly aligned. Peel off the outside layer on the sticky sheet and using the clear micro beads cover the little purse completely. I pressed the beads into the sides and bottom and flap to get a good firm hold. The 4 bottom corners of the purse were covered with crystal effects and I adhered brass book corners onto each one for purse the feet. For the flap I used a working snap on the inside which I glued on with E6000. On each side at the top, I punched a hole with the 1/16" circle handheld punch and inserted 5 mm jumpring. The handle is a piece of cord threaded through the jumprings and tied off and to add a finishing touch is a rhinestone glued onto the outside snap. I made these little purses as gifts and once you have the patten scanned and shrunk down and cut out, it's really quite easy to make these. The corners can be adhered with hot glue too!

An updated version of this project would use the Bella Toile Background stamps and leave the hardware corners off and maybe use one of the SU ribbons in place of the cording for the handle? Endless possibilites...
