Suzanne Glazier: Beaded Pumpkin ATC

We are delighted to share a wonderful harvest project with you today from Suzanne Glazier, the owner of Penny Wise Arts, who was gracious enough to share some her microbead projects with us this month.

Her gorgeous beaded pumpkin ATC is a perfect example of using microbeads to add pizzazz to even mini masterpieces like Artist Trading Cards.

Suzanne told us about her process in creating this beautiful ATC!

These “Stamptastic” pumpkins are my favorite stamp to use this time of year. I colored the image with colored pencils and then put O’So Sticky Tape over the top and cut it out.

I peeled the liner off and carefully sprinkled Lettuce Translucent Mini Micro Beads randomly over the green leafy areas. I used the liner to set them firmly into the tape and then dipped the whole thing into Clear Ultra Fine Micro Beads to fill in all of the open areas. This close up shows the dimension between the two sized beads.

Behind the pumpkins is a sleeve created by cutting an orange envelope into fourths. The pocket is open on two sides and stamped with a cheese cloth texture stamp from Stampin’ Up!. The gem is to help make it more noticeable that something actually pulls out of the pocket.

Isn’t that the cutest saying? The stamp is from Ann-ticipations.



  1. Suzanne, I love the ATC. The pocket idea I just might need to borrow.
    Love the beads of course.

  2. Love what you did using the beads. Thanks for sharing.
