  2. I have been waiting to see what you did with that stamp set. It is beautiful, just beautiful. The bead work and the layered flowers, so pretty. Is she stamped on vellum? She is just so pretty. I can't stop saying pretty...it's just SO PRETTY! I just did some beading in the center of a Tim Holtz poinsettia and it unraveled :( Do you have any advice for how you did your beading? I used threading at first, but then ripped through the paper. I ended up using beacon 3 in 1 and just piled them up, but then they dry like that, in a pile. Thanks!

    1. Dear Shelley, I use the mini wire to bead all my florals "usually" some times i do glue especially if the flowers are smaller...Also I did indeed use vellum/glasseine which is old school :)
