Beaded Sparkle Burst Stars

Sparkle Burst Birthday

Today's card is a little bit festive and a little bit elegant and features the Sparkle Burst Stars and Vintage Happy Birthday dies.

Bead Closeup

I die cut the Sparkle Burst Stars die a few times out of navy card stock and then adhered the panel to some double sided adhesive so that the negative die cut spaces would be sticky.  I added gold micro beads to the negative spaces to complete the design. Love the texture from these little beads!

Great use of the microbeads! Thanks for the inspiration! I love that journal too!

Very pretty card, Sue! The journal is beautiful too!

Great colors on this card. I love the gold sparklies!

Wow cool card! Thx for the awesome giveaway!

Wow! Beads? Good Idea! Gonna have to try this one for sure. Great card and the journal is a gorgeous way to take notes and for planning my flower and vegetable gardens. The Tulip bulbs are already planted along with the daffodils etc. but just getting started with the vegetable planning. Can you tell I'm chomping at the bit for Spring?

Oh my, your card is so imaginative...love it.

Hi Sue, Fab card, I hadn't thought about die cutting into the backing card and filling the spaces with micro beads. That's given me some inspiration, Thank You. Kath x

Holy Smokes--this is amazing!! Using the micro beads in that manner--so impressive and beautiful!! Thanks so much!! :)

Gorgeous card! Love the micro beads. :-)

Love the micro beads and the coloring!

The creativity of this card is over-the-top! I can't believe you worked with those little teeny tiny beads. Everytime I use them I end up with more beads on the floor than on my project! You are one very talented lady! Oh, yes the journal is exquisite isn't it? I would love to be the lucky winner for this giveaway!

What a beautiful way to use the negative space...with micro beads!

What an impact ! This card really stands out from the crowd in a big way ! Stunning !


The sparkle burst pattern is lovely and the micro beads look great. I have some of those in a dusty corner somewhere. Maybe I should revisit them. Great colours and I like the clean look. Hugz

Sue, what an amazing idea. I bet this looks even more spectacular in real life. Thank you for this awesome inspiration

Stunning card Sue!! I've learnt something new from you today, that is to use die cut piece on sticky sheet top with mirco beads!! The results are gorgeous!!!

WAW... what a great card...I never seen a microbeads card before... Thans for sharing
