It is beautiful and delicate and so easy to put together. Using it and the new Ladder Fern, I’ve made an any-occasion card using a piece of old sheet music as the background.

Celebrate Every Victory

August 23, 2017

 

Hello friends, Piyanki here today welcoming you to a brand new post. Hydrangeas have been one of my favourites from the Susan’s Garden collection and I thoroughly enjoy using the hydrangea dies every single time I make a project with them. The flowers themselves are so vibrant and can be created with so many variations in the colors, just like in nature.

This time instead of using inks, paints, glitter, micro beads and such – what I usually do for backgrounds – I used some dies to create a simple, elegant white-on-white panel. I think the sentiment – “Celebrate every victory, no matter how small” – speaks volumes.

Day Lily Thank You Card

July 26, 2017

Hello Dear Friends,

“The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,

The humble sheet a threat’ning horn:

While the Lily white shall in love delight,

Nor a thorn nor a thread stain her beauty bright.”

The above ode to this exquisite flower by famous romantic poet William Blake signifies the love for lilies that people have had for centuries. The Day Lily symbolizes innocence, purity and thankfulness. It’s a flower used not only as a prenatal gift to expecting mothers but also as an anniversary gift and for other occasions, too.

Today I present to you a card using this immensely captivating flower. This card is for all of my friends, thanking them for being a vital part of my life’s journey.

A Dahlia Canvas

June 28, 2017

Welcome friends to another post where I have used the beautiful Dahlias from Susan’s Garden, this time on a canvas. Creating the canvas reminded me of my childhood where I used to see my mother nurture these beauties while helping her in the garden. Working with flowers makes you fall in love with the nature all the more, and such has been my experience. Though I chose a canvas, you could adapt the idea for very special cards, shadow boxes, and other projects. Look at the close-ups and instructions then it’s your turn to replicate it! Continue Reading
