PTI March Blog Hop March 2013

Time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  
This is the challenge (copied from Nicole's Blog) from PTI for March 2013:

Sequins are popping up everywhere on paper crafting projects and now's your chance to try out this new trend!  With the variety of colors and shapes available, the sky is the limit with the creative possibilities!  Use them to accent the centers of flowers, add them as borders, fill shakers, or create random splashes of sparkle. 
 
I didn't have any sequins in my stash (that I remembered), so the other day I stopped at WalMart and found a roll (like ribbon) of pretty raspberry colored in their Fabric Dept.  Not sure how much I would use this trendy little-hard-to-glue-on-cards embellishment, 
I only purchased one yard. It was on sale for .57   :)

Rosie Posie stamps 

I heat embossed the Daisy flower and also the Stampin Up flowers, used the die cut leaves and cut a slit in one of the petals, the center of the daisy is stamped with terra cotta and yellow ink, and the other flower centers are sequins.

  1. Very clever use of the sequins. ;-) I don't think I would use them much either, however trendy. I'll admit that I'm just not that trendy! I really like your white flowers here, and I'd say you used the sequins wisely. ;-)

  7. I think it is smart to make a small investment, but love how you used the sequins on this card. After this Hop, I am thinking sequins are more versatile that I originally thought :)
