Thanks! For the roses, I don't used cutters, and I have a tool that I use for the texturing. This is how I learned to make roses, but I use cutters when I want to make quick and/or large roses.
Some of my favorite cutters are Orchard products. I have so many, that I can't remember the brands. The Wilton cutters are not my favorite, but they do work. Sometimes the edges don't cut cleanly, but you can reduce this by cutting most of the way through, letting the petal stick, and then running your finger along the cutting edge. This works for any cutter.
Sorry if this wasn't much help.
