Black-Eyed Susan Cluster in a Crate

November 15, 2017

Hello to all

It’s Anita here to take you on a stroll in Susan’s Garden. It’s blooming flowers everywhere and it’s all the more amazing because now you can make them using the dies available at the Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Today, I am showing you a trio of vibrant Black Eyed Susans in a wooden fruit crate.

All the dies are now available at the ECD web store.  Susan has posted many videos showing how to create the flowers in her collection on her  Facebook page. (She’s been doing a Facebook Live tutorial each week and will be taking a break during the holidays, but they all remain in the archive.) Don’t miss them!

Snowman Ornament Card

Hello my crafty friends!

Today’s post for Susan’s Garden Design Team is a simple little Christmas card.  Although Susan has some new releases which are wonderful I have used an older release for the simple reason I was going on vacation and there had not been a release date.  In order to have a post ready in time I went ahead and started this card before I left for vacation finishing on my return but have already started working on a card using some of Susan’s new releases which I will post soon.

Congratulations Card – Love in a Mist

October 25, 2017

 

Hello Friends, Piyanki here with  a new project using some brand new Susan’s Garden dies. The collection is fun , creative and as always immensely intricate to give your flowers the perfect shape and natural look. For today’s post I have chosen the Garden Notes –  “Love in a Mist” (Nigella Damascena) die set. First the name fascinated me and then when I researched a little about the flower, it blooms in the color blue. For a long time I have not created any flower in blue so went for it at once.

Love in a Mist is a common name for “Nigella”. The ferny , fennel like foliage makes it look all the more interesting. With the die set you have the perfect dies for the foliage which will add the natural look once you assemble the flowers. I chose to create my flowers blue for my card, however you can find these flowers in a variety of different colors.

Today I chose the hydrangea and peony to express sympathy and support for those who grieve right now, for even at times of loss the beauty of flowers can provide solace and bring joy. The hydrangea represents heartfelt emotions, the peony stands for family honor and love.
