Here’s what I made using The Craft’s Meow stamps and Perfect Paper Crafting’s Perfect Layers Rulers…


Super, super close up first today because I wanted you to see the Judikins Micro Beads I used over the Poinsettia image. There are two sizes of beads from Judikins… I used the Micro Beads but there is also a Clear Beads that is equally as fun!  I have a couple other posts using them here on my blog.  I colored with Copics, covered it with a sheet of double sided tape and applied the Micro Beads.  I love this look!  IRL it really has vintage appeal to me.


First I matted the image in black with the 1/16  inch ruler… than the red with the ¼ inch ruler and the green with the  ⅜ inch ruler.  Perfect Layers Rulers save me so much time!  Link to shop in my sidebar…be sure to use my code to save!

I love this beautiful Holiday Poinsettia clear stamp set from The Craft’s Meow!   The stamps inked up and stamped perfectly!  Always love that! and made in the USA!!!  Several sentiments in the set to choose from too.  The Craft’s Meow designers have created gorgeous cards with this set HERE.


I wish you could see this card IRL!  The Micro Beads are so pretty!  Thanks for stopping by today…

but before I go, I better give you the hop list! : )  Your next stop is Jennie Harper

  1. Pam this is absolutely beautiful!! The coloring of the poinsettia is fabulous makes it look you want to touch it to see if it’s real… the card. hugs, Ruth Ann

  2. OMG!!! I can see the micro beads!!! How in the world did you keep the beads out of the other colors that you hadn’t micro beaded yet??? The whole thing is done !!!

  3. Love this card- Microbeads add such a nice touch to your card- love the Poinsettia- colored so beautifully!

  4. Pam, this is so pretty. I have thought many times of trying this technique, and even have purchased (and lost) beads. Thanks for inspiring me to find them! You have showcased this gorgeous stamp set so beautifully! Great work, as always 🙂 You are making it pretty tough for me to choose my Christmas card this year! lol…

  5. I certainly agree with all the others. It’s a beautiful image and you’ve created a gorgeous card with it. The micro beads really make it special!

  6. WOW, Pam, what a gorgeous effect! I’ve never tried those micro beads, but you just put them on my wishlist! I’d love to pin your card to our boards at The Craft’s Meow – could you make this one public, pretty please?

  7. Just a big wow! Love the beads and those shades of Christmas colors are soooo rich.
    This we have to see at club.. Wow wow wow it…jan

  8. Yowser, Pam, this is fantastic!!!! I absolutely love the look of the micro beads! I must try that myself! And your coloring of the poinsettia is perfection, of course! You never cease to amaze and delight me with your fabulous creations. Thanks so much for making TCM stamps shine! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  9. Beyond words beautiful! Your Poinsettia is beautifully colored and the addition of the micro beads is a wonderfully creative idea. Absolutely gorgeous card. (Thank you for the inspiration today using the micro beads…think I have them in my stash, definitely will be digging those out soon!)

  10. Beautiful! I have some of those beads from years ago – guess I should give them another turn around the block! I had forgotten how gorgeous they look over a colored image. Love your card.

  11. This is such a beautiful card. I do love that poinsettia stamp and think you used it in a most creative way with the beads!

  12. Your card is so beautiful with the micro beads. I like how you layered your card and put the holly trim. Great card design. After the hop I will check out the how to videos on these cool tools. Fabulous job!

  14. Beautiful card. Love the shiny sparkle on the poinsettia. I’ve had some beads like this for several years and finally used them the other day. They go on so easy and look so nice. You can see the lines from the stamp through them which adds to the shading. thanks for an idea for using some of the other colors I have and where to get them. I bought theones I have at a scrapbook expo and don’t have an address anymore.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
