Hello everyone, Christine here with my first post for Elizabeth Craft Designs in 2018.
Weather here in Maine has been bitterly cold, actually record cold for December, and it is going to continue. Dreaming of warmer days, my post today uses Susan’s Garden Dahlia 2 and Black Eyed Susans which were in her last release along with Suzanne Cannon’s Flourished Frame and Els van de Burgt’s Thanks and Berry Branch.
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.
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!
Hello Lovely People !!!!!
Welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. Today I have created a project using the lovely Black Eyed Susan. They are flowers native to North America, a popular wildflower that can be planted in a garden along with other perennials. I have decorated a handmade chocolate box with these beautiful flowers.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today and I have a pretty card designed using Susan’s Garden Notes Black-Eyed Susan die set. Also, I want to show you how to mail the dimensional cards you create.
