Beaded Ornaments

   Bah! Humbug!     Chalenge 29...Beads...
Jingle Belles     JB30-Oh Hole-y Night!

I've made an aperture card today using SU's Ornament Punch and the stamp set that goes with it Delightful Decorations. These ornaments just begged for some tiny micro beads, so after heat embossing them with silver and gold embossing powder I used my glue pen and a catcher tray to apply the beads. Be aware that if you are like me this is kind of like a glitter experience, I had beads every where. They are kind of like jumping beans, they have a life of their own ;-)
American Crafts Christmas Textured Foil paper was the perfect back drop for these ornaments, and one of my favorite corner punches. 
My photos will be off for a few days because I broke my right photo bulb and have some coming in the mail. 
Come join in the fun at these two Christmas challenges and you'll see you Christmas card stash rising each week. 

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

These are beautiful cards. I just love those tiny beads. I know what you mean about them having a life of their own, but the end result is definitely worth it!
