Happy 18th

February 12, 2018

Hello Everyone!

Today’s card was designed for our dear granddaughter’s 18th Birthday.  It is so hard to believe that our first grandchild has turned 18! Where have those years gone?  I wanted to showcase a few of her baby pictures and what better way than to use Susan’s Garden Notes Square Window as a frame.  Also from Susan’s Garden Notes, I have used the newly released Cornflower Bachelor Button.

Holiday Greetings Everyone!

Christine here today from Susan’s Garden Design Team with a Christmas card I designed using a set from Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s latest release – Glass Hurricane & Candle – along with sets from the existing collection – Garden Notes Evergreen Wreath, Garden Notes White Pine Boughs & Pinecone, and Garden Notes Holiday Holly & Berries.  The card is a 6″ X 6″ tent-fold card but certainly could be done as a side-fold.

Plant Love in Susan’s Garden

December 1, 2017

Hello to all,

This is Anita here. How was your Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Shopping? I am sure you all must have shopped to your heart’s content at the ECD store as there was a fabulous scheme going on.

Today let us celebrate the coming days even more by planting smiles and love with a card made with Susan’s Garden dies and a wonderful sentiment from her stamp collection along with other dies from the ECD line. I chose Love in a Mist, a beautiful flower that I learned to make by watching Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Facebook video tutorial, and I encourage you to watch it so your flowers will be realistic and lovely, just like hers!

Black-Eyed Susan Thank You

November 22, 2017

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:

Black-Eyed Susan Cluster in a Crate

November 15, 2017

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!

Elegant and Festive Snowflake Christmas Wreaths

November 9, 2017

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.

Congratulations Card – Love in a Mist

October 25, 2017

 

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.

Mixed Media Daisy Canvas – Wall Decor

September 20, 2017

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.
