Glitter Flower on a Card

I showed you these wonderful glitter flowers in a previous post, I used one of them here on this card.

I had a brainstorm and sent a request to PTI to see if they could make some buttons in just Flowers and Hearts (LOL, yep I can't get enough). The first thing I do when the vintage buttons arrive is to dig out the shape buttons and there are never enough for a flower lover such as myself. Do you agree? Go to the ask the PTI Team Page and leave a comment in my Flower/Heart button post.

Product list...
Cricut George Cartridge
Cricut Walk in My Garden Cartridge
SU Bella Rose DP
SU scallop border punch
Scallop Circle Punch
PTI card stock, buttons, twine, wishing you stamp set, ribbon, ink
spray adhesive
Hero Arts fine glitter

So for some good news Jesse has been told he will get more hours starting next week. So if the snow stays away and the roads stay clear we are hopefully on the road with fewer bumps.

Acrylic Felt Flower Card Candy

Below I took photos of acrylic felt after I die cut it with a Spellbinders Die on the left is right out of the die (time after time I was able to get clean clear images and was able to stamp on the acrylic felt) the Right has been pulled and tugged at to get some fibers to show for the photo.

Again here is a flower that I cut using Cuttlebug flower die and tugged and pulled to get some fuzz to show up for you. All of my pulling and tugging distorted the stamped flower image and you can totally see the difference from the flowers I made the candy with and used on my card for today that were cut cleanly time after time.

Product list...
Acrylic Felt
Cuttlebug Flower dies
Spellbinders Labels one dies
marvy floral punch
circle punches
PTI blooming button bits
PTI floral frenzy
PTI vintage labels
PTI ink, buttons, card stock
white floss
Sheet music
Tim Holtz distress ink
dimensional dots
glue dots

Next on my list is to dye the white felt using reinkers, I will let you know how it goes...

Happy Valentines Day, Sweet PTI!

I was so very excited to catch up with Papertrey today real WOOL FELT, YUMMY! And the first color to be released is BLACK, did I die and go to heaven? Not to mention the new exclusive PTI dies and paint on the horizon. I did purchase some felt at Hobby Lobby during last weeks sale it works fine in the cuttlebug with little fraying, I am very happy with the flowers and labels one I have made.. Someone pinch me please! You can find the rundown on Nichole's blog here and visit PTI tonight for the release party and your chance to purchase.

Have a Happy Valentines Day!
