Felted flowers

As part of Papertrey's Febrauary countdown, Nichole Heady set a challenge yesterday to create some floral embellishments and use them to make a card. Having re-discovered my felt collection recently, I decided to make some felt flowers using two colours that quite closely match my two favourite PTI colours - Aqua Mist and Raspberry Fizz:



Recipe:

Stamps - Vintage Picnic (sentiment)(PTI)
Card - Stamper's Select White/Aqua Mist/Raspberry Fizz (PTI)
Paper - Bitty Dots (Aqua Mist)
Buttons - Raspberry Fizz (PTI)
Other - felt/Cuttlebug flower dies/Cuttlebug/Spellbinders tag dies


I cut the flowers with my Cuttlebug flower dies, and sewed them together with a Raspberry Fizz button in the centre. Here are the rest of them, stuck on an acetate sheet all ready to use on more projects!



More 'felty' projects coming your way soon lol!

Have a fantastic Sunday and thanks for visiting!

Oh Kate, I bet i know what's going straight in your basket tonight!! These are fantastic - I have never really used felt all that much but I am so loving what you're doing with it. Those little flower embellishments look fabulous. How's your cart looking by the way? Mine's frightening me already!!

Hugs,

Oh Kate these are so dreamy, I believe they rival the great PTI felt embellies. As I type with one hand the other is frantically looking for some felt ;D

Can I ask did you use your bug to cut them?

I wont mention the "R" word hee hee!

Soooooo sweet! I think you've persuaded me to make some embellishments now even though it's way too late to enter the PTI challenge!
What a gorgeous colour combo too - you're just using up all your felt so you can buy the PTI stuff right?! LOL!
