Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today. Autumn is not far away and I have a card designed using Susan’s Garden Notes Sunflowers and Joset’s Pumpkin die sets.
Flowers have the power to reflect our deepest emotions. They are used to convey love, gratitude, to celebrate and to mourn.
Today I chose the hydrangea and peony to express sympathy and support for those who grieve right now, for even at times of loss the beauty of flowers can provide solace and bring joy. The hydrangea represents heartfelt emotions, the peony stands for family honor and love.
Piyanki here today!
A big welcome to all. Today I have some freshly-picked dahlias from Susan’s Garden for you, resting on a watercolor background. Dahlias grow in so many colors. You can stay true to the ones found in nature the way Susan always shows, or color in whatever way you prefer. All of the dies from the Susan’s Garden collection are so versatile. Designed to make it easy for you to succeed, they include scored lines to help you shape the petals and leaves.
Shalini Pahwa here. A birthday is one of the most important and eagerly awaited days of the year for all of us. Even in this age of advanced technology with a plethora of options for communicating and sending gifts, I still feel that a bouquet of flowers, delivered with a personal message, is the best way to deliver birthday wishes. But if there is a distance between you and your loved one, a card with a bouquet of beautiful handmade paper flowers is a wonderful way to express your emotions – and it is sure to become a cherished gift.
A bouquet of carnations is so pretty. This is Selma today and I have created a very feminine birthday card using Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Garden Notes Carnation die set. I am always amazed at the design work of Susan in creating such realistic flower dies. Aren’t these carnations gorgeous! Here is how I created this card.
