They say once we see robins, that it’s the first sign of spring. I have seen robins and a variety of others birds now that the snow has all melted. It was fun creating a scene with a variety of Elizabeth Craft Designs die sets. I have included sets from Joset Designs, Els van de Burgt Studio, and Susan’s Garden Club. Here is how this card was created:
Hello out there my crafty friends. It is Christine here from Susan’s Garden Design Team. Today I am posting a card I made featuring Susan’s Garden Notes Pansy die along with her Garden Notes Ivy Vine. The color of the pansies comes from a photo I saw on Facebook last year that I fell in love with and the wooden box is because I love rustic, primitive things.
Hello to all,
Welcome to Susan’s Garden. This is Anita here and I am so happy to present to you a card made with some of the beautiful dies from Susan Tierney-Cockburn.
Today I have beautiful tulips in a pottery pitcher. I love the way this card turned out. I tried a new colouring technique and I think it gives a very realistic look to the flowers and leaves.
Here’s how it looks:
Hello to all my crafty friends out there! For us here in Maine spring is still a couple of months away but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about spring flowers. Today my post for Susan’s Garden Team has Susan’s newly released Garden Notes Fairy – Rose Petal and she is watering a patch of tulips which is from one of her older releases.
Wishing all my friends and fellow crafters a very good day.
Where I live the spring season is in full bloom, marking the end of a hard winter season and the beginning of fresh sunny weather ahead. The spring season brings vibrantly colored flowers that dot the fields and gardens. Flowers brighten our lives with their beauty. One such flower is the hydrangea – also known as the water flower. Hydrangeas signify heartfelt emotions, gratitude and thanksgiving to one you care for, as well as abundance and prosperity. With these emotions in mind I have created this card with the hydrangea as the central theme.
Melanie, from the Die Cut Design Team, here with you to share a really playful card. I love creating scenes and the All Seasons Tree die set from designer Karen Burniston is perfect for making scenes for every season.
Hello my crafty friends. Christine here from the Susan’s Garden Design Team with a card that showcases some of Susan’s latest releases. The new dies are Garden Notes Rose 3, Ivy Vine, and Pottery Pitcher. Susan just keeps coming up with more and more wonderful dies. The card is a 6″ X 6″ and here is how it was created.
Hello to all,
Welcome to the ECD blog and especially to Susan’s Garden Club. I am Anita here. Susan’s Garden is filled with the best flower making dies and I just love all of them. You’ll find roses and hydrangeas, gerbera daisies, pansies, lilies and many more.
Today, I have created some delicate pastel blooms for you using the newly-released Garden Notes Gerbera Daisy.
In nature this flower grows in a variety of colours from pastel to vibrant. I love the pastels and chose soft pink. There are eight dies in the set including the stem, leaves, and all of the parts of the flower!
Happy New Year – Welcome 2017! Hello Everyone, it is Christine from Susan’s Design Team. Today’s card is another winter theme card and although Christmas is over the card could be used as a birthday card for a winter birthday. My inspiration for this card was a square wreath that I had seen recently. This card features the beautiful cardinals, one of my very favorite birds.
Now that Christmas is over it is time to play in the snow! One of Susan’s CountryScapes die sets is the Build A Snowman. I have built the snowman just like Susan shows on the die set envelope, but decided to try building him so he is a little different for this card. Is is fun to play with the dies and use them in different ways – besides, no two snowmen are identical! Here is how the card was created:
