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!

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.

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 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.

Day Lily Thank You Card

July 26, 2017

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.
