Today I present to you a card that I just loved creating. The Black-Eyed Susan is such a special part of the Susan’s Garden collection, and like other flowers in the sunflower family it symbolizes radiant warmth and faith.
I thought that the sentiment, “Be the sunshine in someone’s rainy day,” was the perfect way to express my idea: Every person can be just like the sun shining on a sunflower, providing reassurance and emanating positive energy and strength, elevating a loved one’s mood.
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 to all! This is Anita here today.
Belated Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends at Elizabeth Craft Designs!!! I hope you had super fun shopping for your craft goodies at the ECD store on Black Friday, and maybe my project will entice you to do a bit more…
I had awesome fun creating cards with the recently release Abstract Background. There are many creative ways that you can use this die and I want to share some of the ways now. (You can use them in your own way and I would love to see what you create with them, so if you’re not already part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Facebook Family, please join in.)
Here is my take for using one background die in three ways.
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.
