Beads


I have beads somewhere in my craftroom not sure where cos I don't use them that often and it a bit chilly in my room for a extended search. I do know where I have a couple of packets of Accent Beads.
You may be wondering why I need beads, well its the challenge on Less is More and I afraid light bulb moments are not happening and I'm not sure if my card turned out less is more but I'm going to enter and hope for the best
So I've used a couple of Stampin Up embossing folders, the hexagon and the straight lines and also the Memory box Pearl Lace die.
I had to try and make a sort of Sunflower because the accent beads I have are a brown mix and it was the only flower I could think of that had a brown centre. To make the flower I used the Aster die from Memory Box but the Kraft centre is actually the retired Sizzix Daisy die but just using the tiny one. The sentiment is again StampinUp.
I've just discovered Memory Box is going to release some more new dies and things are tight at the moment so I have to choose from needing some more card or new dies. Not much point making cards if don't have any card!

  6. Fabulous Debby! Love the sunflower you have made and your layout! You are like me in the craft room - I know I have it but where the heck is it?? I needed some googly eyes the other day which I knew I had but I couldn't for the life of me find them! Had to give up it just gets too frustrating! Hugs Susan x

  19. Wow this is so lovely. I adore this card Debby, but I do wish you would stop using so many dies cause you keep making me want more after I see the lovely cards you make. As for card, well I got an email yesterday from Papermill saying they were having an end of season sale today for one day only. Don't know if it will amount to much, but worth looking out for in case there are bargains to be had! You prob knew this! Jx

  26. Your sunflower looks like Spring and it can't come soon enough here in Ontario. Those tiny beads finish the card to perfection. Sounds like you need to put a craft room furnace on your Christmas wish list this year!
