Hello My Crafty Friends,
It’s Christine here today sharing a card I created for my dear friend since high school (my 50th class reunion is this summer, hers was last summer). We now live an hour and a half apart but try to meet halfway for a day of shopping, eating and catching up every so often.
Hi, It’s Kelly Booth with you today. I often need a friendship card or a generic card to send to a friend. Using Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words and a simple flower by Susan Tierney Cockburn are the perfect combination for this! For my tutorial I chose the Friends word die and Susan’s Geranium.
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.
Hello friends, Piyanki here with a watercolor tag and some Dahlias for you all. Flowers have been the most inspiring element in all of my projects and I continue to enjoy making them with Susan’s Garden dies. Let’s have a look at how to create this tag.
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.
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!
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:
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.
