PTI Embellishment Challenge

Celebrations continue over on Nichole Heady's blog for Papertrey Ink's 3rd anniversary, and today Nichole issued a phenomenal challenge! If you frequent the PTI design team blogs, I am sure you have seen the many Embellie posts Dawn McVey and Michelle Wooderson have had showcasing the acetate sheets they fill with oodles of fantastic handmade embellishments. If you haven't seen them, I suggest you check them out....fantastic fantastic fantastic!

Nichole's challenge for us today was to take inspiration from these ladies and come up with our own handmade embellishments. We were to use one embellie on a card, and make up our own acetate sheet of coordinating embellies to send to a crafty friend.

Here is what I came up with (warning...oodles of pics - haha):

The process:

The Card:

The Embellies:

Cardstock: PTI Vintage Cream, PTI Sweet Blush, PTI New Leaf
Cricut: Plantin Schoolbook (Flowers and Leaves), Jasmine (Vintage Tag and 'friend')
Stamp: PTI Life set
Buttons: PTI Lemon Tart, and some random pink buttons I had lying around
Glitter: SU! Dazzling Diamonds

Hope you enjoy them!

Please leave a comment. I love to hear from you! :)

Hey Lisa! :) LOVE your embellie sheet! How creative!!! Did you use the 2 way glue pen to adhere your pieces to your acetate? I'm still trying to figure out the best product (where it will stick well to the clear sheet, but come off easily when you're ready to use them). :)

You asked how I cut out my felt pieces on my blog. -- The Cuttlebug is the BEST die cutter for fabric or felt. This felt (from Heather Bailey) is SO easy to cut. --- Just one pass through the machine with a die & it cut perfectly.
