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!
Hi, it’s Sandy here with you today sharing two cards. It’s always fun to use our dies in an unexpected way and that’s what we are going to do. One of my favorite die sets is the Snowflakes and I’ve used it many times to make backgrounds or as a focal point on a card. This time I want to show you how to make a stunning Christmas wreath that is either elegant or festive depending on what colors are used.
Hello Friends, Piyanki here with a new project using some brand new Susan’s Garden dies. The collection is fun , creative and as always immensely intricate to give your flowers the perfect shape and natural look. For today’s post I have chosen the Garden Notes – “Love in a Mist” (Nigella Damascena) die set. First the name fascinated me and then when I researched a little about the flower, it blooms in the color blue. For a long time I have not created any flower in blue so went for it at once.
Love in a Mist is a common name for “Nigella”. The ferny , fennel like foliage makes it look all the more interesting. With the die set you have the perfect dies for the foliage which will add the natural look once you assemble the flowers. I chose to create my flowers blue for my card, however you can find these flowers in a variety of different colors.
Hello everyone, Christine here for Susan’s Garden Design Team. Today I am posting a fun Halloween card that I designed using Susan’s CountryScapes Build A Witch. The card base is called a Telescopic Card (not my design saw on Facebook) and it is easy to make so let’s get going.
Welcome, friends, to a brand new project. This is Piyanki here today. The ECD Design Teams are celebrating the season with home decor projects this month. I have created a beautiful canvas for you using the Gerbara Daisy from Susan’s Garden. I always enjoy using canvas boards because the surface is just right as a background for handcrafted flowers.
This time the canvas is partially covered with mixed media effects, a fitting backdrop for the bouquet.
Hello my crafty friends Christine here from Susan’s Garden Design Team. Today my post is using Susan’s Victorian Teacup and Saucer Die Set along with Garden Notes Hydrangea in blue and white. Els’ Fitted Hearts and Scalloped Heart Dies also used.
This is Anita here . Cards are such beautiful things to light up a dull moment. We all give and receive cards all the time. So keeping that in mind, I have a note card stand made using ModaScrap dies and decorated with Susan’s Garden Flowers.
This can be displayed and has a beautiful sentiment to inspire you.
Melanie here with you today sharing this adorable little scene I created using a variety of Elizabeth Craft Designs’ products.
Hello Crafty Friends,
This is Anita here with another inspiration from Susan’s Garden.
Nature is a blessing bestowed upon human life and proximity to nature brings solace to us. So keeping this in mind, I moved away from my usual style of flower making and have used the CountryScapes Mountains die set to create my card. There is sunshine in the valley and a sparkling snow-filled landscape.
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.
