Susan's Garden Club

Country Snowman

December 28, 2017

Hi Everybody!

Angela here with today’s post. This is my last one as a member of the Susan’s Garden Design team so I’d like to take a minute to say thank you for your kind comments and “likes”. I’ve had a great time designing and sharing my cards with you!

For this post I decided to create a winter scene with Susan’s CountryScapes dies. They are so much fun to play with and the endless ways they can be combined will let your imagination come to life.

This card uses several die sets including English Cottage 2, Build a Snowman, Mountains, and Country Fence with the Snow Decor accessories. Add one of my favourite trees from The Woods set and a scene is born!

Merry Christmas Reindeer Silhouette Scene

December 14, 2017

Hi Crafty Fiends,

It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team today. Alcohol Inks are becoming increasingly popular again lately, so I decided to pull mine out to have a play. I decided to create a night sky background using various colors of alcohol inks and then create a silhouette scene using the Reindeer die set. This card was fairly quick to create so would be good for mass production if anyone still has a batch of Christmas cards to make. If you haven’t been reminded lately, there are only 10 days to go!!!!

Shimmer Sheetz Sunday: Snowflake Ornaments

December 10, 2017

By Judi Kauffman

Shimmer Sheetz ornaments add a special touch to a tree, mantel, or gift box. They’re also fun to mail instead of – or inside of – a holiday card!

Each of the three snowflakes in the new die set includes partially-cut elements that can be bent upward for dimension, a beautiful detail. Instead of cutting the snowflakes out of sparkly Shimmer Sheetz, I went for the opposite, the unexpected: Matte snowflakes with a sparkly 2-layer Shimmer Sheetz background.

Match the color of the snowflake to the color of the outer circle (Shown: White Iridescent SS). Choose a contrasting color for the Stitched Circle just behind the snowflake (Shown: Ruby Gemstone and Fire Opal Gemstone SS). See the supply list for more color options or pick your own combo!

Shimmer Sheetz is a challenge to photograph, but amazing in person, and the way light reflects off the surface of the Stitched Circle makes the ornaments really special.

Snowman Ornament Card

November 1, 2017

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.
