Glass Beads

This is a product that I took over to Canada to share with Naomi and the effect on your cards is quite amazing.

They are tiny glass beads that are added to double sided adhesive sheets, and because they are so clear the image or sentiment underneath can still be seen.

I bought mine from  Creatuve Studios  and you can get both products from their website ... just click their link to take a look at some of the other super products that they have.

I hope that the picture gives you some idea of the effect that has been added to the Rose design from Polkadoodles

The beads cover the flower but it can still be seen easily through them. I would suggest that you decant them to a larger container that you can dip your image or sentiment in to.

Stamp or print off the image and colour if needed.

Then remove one side of the backing sheet from the  double sided adhesive paper and place it over the image.

Trim it  to size. Remove the other backing sheet and press the sticky side  firmly down into the beads and make sure that the area is covered.

Once you take it out of your container make sure all the beads are stuck onto the sticky sheet and remove any loose ones.

Add the extras that you want to finish your card and the result is very pretty.  Hope you like !

  3. I have to say this has to be one of my favorite new techniques and I can't wait to get back into crafting full time so that I can put it to use. Your picture came out really well, you can certainly see the effect! Beautiful card, I love the colors and the sparkle.
