Blue Beaded Flowers

The Free 4 All challenge over at Splitcoast is to use Blue & Browns.
My container of beads ( from years ago) caught my eye this morning.
 I'm trying to be good and use some of the older stuff .
That way I can justify
"NEEDING " to buy new stuff!
Here's what I learned today...fingernails come in handy when chasing micro beads around!
Actually, I do have a couple of helpfull hints.....
a glue dot in the center of a flower holds the micro beads in a nice round shape!
after you stamp the flower and cut it out, if you take a marker ( a color that matches what you stamped with) and go around the edge with the brush end, your flower will look better.
Thanks for stopping by.
till next time,


  1. Beautiful! This is one of my favorite color combos ... and it's 'perfect' with your lovely blossoms and matching beads!

  2. Your blue blossoms look pretty against your brown background.

  3. What a gorgeous card-love how your blue flowers pop against the chocolate background.
    Love your cardmaking style-i'm just off to follow you now so i can see more of your lovely creations :)
