Be Bold with Gerbera Daisies on Oxide Photo Paper Background

October 7, 2017

Good morning!  Diana here with a fun card for you.   Fall is finally making an appearance with the cooler weather here in Northern Virginia.  Most of my flowers have started to fade but my Gerbera Daisies actually prefer the lower temperature.  I love how bold and pretty they are – bigger than my other daisies and definitely more colorful.  So when I saw the new Quietfire Design A Way With Words dies I knew I would be combining “be Bold” with the Gerbera Daisies.  I also used my (current) new favorite technique for making backgrounds – Distress Oxide inks on coated photo paper.

Wildflowers

August 16, 2017

 

Hello to all you wonderful craft-loving friends.  Today is my turn to post on Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with a design for Susan’s Garden Design Team.

The card I created features the wildflowers that grow right here in Maine.  The flowers are arranged in Susan’s Garden Notes Pottery Pitcher, a die that is made to look like an old enamel pitcher.  I love having the actual flowers to look at as I create them in paper.  Most of the wildflowers are found growing either in my field or along the roadside as I drive into town.  The one I could not find was the blue chicory.  I had my husband driving around to find some, but we were a few days too early and by the time I was ready to create the chicory they were in bloom.

Memory Never Fades

January 30, 2017

“Like an old photograph
Time can make a feeling fade
But the memory . . .
Never fades away.”

Hello Dear Friends, Shalini Pahwa here and welcome to my first post on the ECD blog. I’m super excited to be here. The above lyrics from American singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw are the essence of my latest creation. I have made this from an old hollowed-out table clock and I chose faded, antique looking colors to give it a worn look. I decorated it with flowers made with dies from the exquisite Susan’s Garden Club collection. This creation of mine is a reflection of what one really wants to hold onto in life – the reminiscence of good times past, incorporating those experiences and what we have learned from them into the present.
