Angela here to share a birthday card with a fall theme. I had a lot of fun playing with Distress Oxide ink backgrounds the other day. One of them proved to be just right for this card. I have to admit to being particularly fond of fall colours and especially like a pop of purple, so of course Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Asters were just what I needed to go with her Chrysanthemums. Some purple berries, and voila! Joset’s Dream stamps provided just the right sentiment.
Hi everyone! Angela here as guest blogger this morning. I am sitting at the cottage in what is now a sunny and hot Northern New Brunswick, Canada. However, until very recently is was unseasonably cold, which means gardens are late. Poppies are just blooming here, so they are my inspiration today. From Susan’s Garden Notes dies, the Poppy 2 die makes it easy to replicate these gorgeous big blooms. I’ve added some Baby’s Breath as well as Berry Spray and some Ladder Fern to complete the arrangement.
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.
It´s Sanna here with another guest designer post. Have you ever been in a situation when you need a card on really short notice? Or want to quickly make a masculine card? I thought I´d share a few simple ideas I like to use when these occasions occur.
I have created three simple card ideas that can be varied in style by changing the papers and colors or by choosing alternative dies. Here are the instructions:
Writer and blogger Melanie Koulouris says :
“Happiness blossoms when one plants seeds of love and kindness in the hearts of others.”
Inspired by such thoughts, I present to you today my latest creation using the Dahlia flower, a flower that symbolizes everlasting bonds and commitment. With its multitude of petals, the Dahlia is much like life with all its varied experiences.
I have made this creation using Susan’s Garden Notes Dahlia 2, Garden Notes Ladder Fern, Garden Notes Ostrich Fern, and Garden Notes Maidenhair Fern dies.
Hi Everyone! Angela Whelton here from Susan’s Garden Design Team. While I know this is the time of year when most people are working on getting Christmas cards completed, for me it’s the week that we commemorate my mom’s passing. It’s been a long time, 12 years already, but sometimes it doesn’t seem nearly that long ago. My mother loved wildflowers so for today’s card, I’ve chosen some of her favourites: Cosmos, Lilacs, and the new Black-Eyed Susan done in white so that it becomes a daisy, as suggested by Susan in one of her recent Facebook Live tutorials. (Susan streams on Facebook Live each week except over the holidays.) I’ve gathered the bouquet in the Victorian Teacup and Saucer.
Hello Lovely People !!!!!
Welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. Today I have created a project using the lovely Black Eyed Susan. They are flowers native to North America, a popular wildflower that can be planted in a garden along with other perennials. I have decorated a handmade chocolate box with these beautiful flowers.
Hello everyone! Angela here. It is always so exciting when Susan releases new dies! This time, along with some beautiful foliage and accessories, she has released a blue flower – Love in a Mist. It is beautiful and delicate and so easy to put together. Using it and the new Ladder Fern, I’ve made an any-occasion card using a piece of old sheet music as the background.
