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:

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.

Celebrate Every Victory

August 23, 2017

 

Hello friends, Piyanki here today welcoming you to a brand new post. Hydrangeas have been one of my favourites from the Susan’s Garden collection and I thoroughly enjoy using the hydrangea dies every single time I make a project with them. The flowers themselves are so vibrant and can be created with so many variations in the colors, just like in nature.

This time instead of using inks, paints, glitter, micro beads and such – what I usually do for backgrounds – I used some dies to create a simple, elegant white-on-white panel. I think the sentiment – “Celebrate every victory, no matter how small” – speaks volumes.

Purple Dahlias

July 12, 2017

Piyanki here today!

A big welcome to all. Today I have some freshly-picked dahlias from Susan’s Garden for you, resting on a watercolor background. Dahlias grow in so many colors. You can stay true to the ones found in nature the way Susan always shows, or color in whatever way you prefer. All of the dies from the Susan’s Garden collection are so versatile. Designed to make it easy for you to succeed, they include scored lines to help you shape the petals and leaves.

A Dahlia Canvas

June 28, 2017

Welcome friends to another post where I have used the beautiful Dahlias from Susan’s Garden, this time on a canvas. Creating the canvas reminded me of my childhood where I used to see my mother nurture these beauties while helping her in the garden. Working with flowers makes you fall in love with the nature all the more, and such has been my experience. Though I chose a canvas, you could adapt the idea for very special cards, shadow boxes, and other projects. Look at the close-ups and instructions then it’s your turn to replicate it!

Hi Friends! Piyanki here today welcoming spring with my handmade bouquet. I am from India. Here, the city of Srinagar hosts the World’s Largest Tulip Garden in Asia. Tourists from all across the globe flock to this garden in the month of April. It is open for 21 days. I found a photo on Google to show you. If you ever visit India at that time of year it is a must-see!

Altered Bottle with Susan’s Hydrangea

February 28, 2017

Hello dear friends, Piyanki  here today to share an altered bottle with you. I am excited I could use Susan’s Garden flowers on something very different. It is the first time I have used Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s dies for something other than cards.

The hydrangea is one of my favourite flowers and I keep going back to it for many of my projects. (You can see a previous one here.)
