Hi there, artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a little home décor project that pairs the elegance of the A Way With Words diecuts with rustic elements. It works! Anyone would love to receive this from you, don’t you think? Using clothespins gives you lots of flexibility and so many options!
Christmas is approaching and all the preparations have already started. This is such a happy time of the year! For today I created a lovely gift tag with Love in a Mist from Susan’s Garden.
Have a look!
The Susan’s Garden Design Team are back today with our final Designer Challenge for the year.
Christmas is now only a couple of weeks away. When people think of Christmas and colors, the most traditional colors that come to mind are the colors red and green. For our challenge this month, our design team are to include the colors red, green and white with either gold or silver on their projects. It doesn’t have to be a Christmas card as these colors can be used throughout the year.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: “What Susan’s Garden products would you like to find under your Christmas tree this year?”
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, December 15th, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
Now let’s take a look at the wonderful creations our talented Design Team have created for the Challenge this month. For more information about the cards, click on the designer’s name under each card to be taken to the designer’s blog post and will open up in a new window.
Today I present to you a card that I just loved creating. The Black-Eyed Susan is such a special part of the Susan’s Garden collection, and like other flowers in the sunflower family it symbolizes radiant warmth and faith.
I thought that the sentiment, “Be the sunshine in someone’s rainy day,” was the perfect way to express my idea: Every person can be just like the sun shining on a sunflower, providing reassurance and emanating positive energy and strength, elevating a loved one’s mood.
‘Tis the Season to build a Snowman! Hi, its Selma Stevenson today. It is always fun to build a snowman and dress him up. You can stay warm and build cute snowmen to create birthday or holiday cards using the Stylish Snowman die set.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a card designed using two Susan’s Garden Notes Poinsesttia die sets. I will show you how I painted the petals for this pretty Pink Marble Poinsettia.
Writer and blogger Melanie Koulouris says :
“Happiness blossoms when one plants seeds of love and kindness in the hearts of others.”
Inspired by such thoughts, I present to you today my latest creation using the Dahlia flower, a flower that symbolizes everlasting bonds and commitment. With its multitude of petals, the Dahlia is much like life with all its varied experiences.
I have made this creation using Susan’s Garden Notes Dahlia 2, Garden Notes Ladder Fern, Garden Notes Ostrich Fern, and Garden Notes Maidenhair Fern dies.
Hi Everyone! Angela Whelton here from Susan’s Garden Design Team. While I know this is the time of year when most people are working on getting Christmas cards completed, for me it’s the week that we commemorate my mom’s passing. It’s been a long time, 12 years already, but sometimes it doesn’t seem nearly that long ago. My mother loved wildflowers so for today’s card, I’ve chosen some of her favourites: Cosmos, Lilacs, and the new Black-Eyed Susan done in white so that it becomes a daisy, as suggested by Susan in one of her recent Facebook Live tutorials. (Susan streams on Facebook Live each week except over the holidays.) I’ve gathered the bouquet in the Victorian Teacup and Saucer.
Hello Friends, Piyanki here with some Black Eyed Susans from Susan’s Garden. Black Eyed Susans are from the sunflower family and at a glance they look similar. But the proportions are not the same; the layering and shaping of the petals are different, too. This was a fun card to make and I had a particularly good time creating the background. Here’s how I created and assembled this card:
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!
