Turquoise Baubles with Beads

Another card using the Creative Expressions Stamps to Die for, this time the Ornate Bauble and the matching Mini Ornate Bauble (which comes with the Mini Beaded Bauble).

I stamped the two Ornate Baubles using a Clear Perfect Medium Pad and Cosmic Shimmer Detail White Embossing Powder on Spearmint card. I die cut the baubles using the co-ordinating Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament die set. 

The bow is made from Creative Expressions Teal Silky Crush Ribbon and a square Dazzler.

The apertures were made using the same Spellbinders die set. This piece of Spearmint card was first attached to a piece of double sided adhesive sheet and die cut using the Spellbinders Grand Labels One die set. After cutting the apertures, Micro Beads were attached to give texture to the card.

A piece of Teal card was placed behind the apertures to act as a contrast. 

The sentiment was stamped in the smaller aperture and piece of bakers twine were added to "hang" the baubles. The sentiment comes from the Winter Greetings stamp set from Creative Expressions.

The base of the card is another piece of Teal card and then a piece of Coconut White card on top, which has been embossed using the Creative Expressions Large Embossing Folder Design chosen by Sue Wilson, called Tapestry. I inked over the embossed areas using a Peacock Feathers Distress Ink pad. 

Happy crafting!
