I’m a brand new Elizabeth Craft Design Team Member, and I wanted to share this 6”x6” card which I think would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day project!
I’ve used ModaScrap Wood Effects papers for the background and for the small Happy Frames. The Wheelbarrow is a perfect container for the Amaryllis, the Narcissus (Paper Whites) and the Hawthorne Berries (Nuvo Crystal Drops – Red Berry color). Some Spanish Moss and gold metallic card stock tendrils are also added. Don’t forget to add a ‘ladybug’ to one of the leaves!
To ‘sculpt’ the flowers, Susan Tierney Cockburn has wonderful tutorials on her Susan’s Garden Club Facebook Page which are so helpful, and show that making these flowers is very easy, and fun, to do!
I hope you enjoy my project and it entices you to try Paper Gardening! Watch out… it’s addicting!
card is a birthday card for a dear friend. I’ve always found making a man’s
birthday card much more difficult that making one for a woman. This is
especially so when I’d like to use flower dies. So this month’s project is one
that I hope he’ll like; I know that I enjoyed putting it together. Susan’s “Garden
Notes – Feverfew” combined with Suzanne Cannon’s “A Way With Words – Happy
Birthday” are the dies I used to create this card.
it comes together:
1 -Cut a card base 6 ½ X 9 ½ inches folded in half from 100lb Soft Finish card stock.
2 -Cut a pretty piece of paper 5 ½ X 3 ¾ inches as well as a coordinating piece of paper 5 5/8 X 3 7/8 and also a piece of matching metallic paper 6 X 4 ¼ inches. Layer them and adhere with double sided adhesive.
3 – Cut 2 copies of the Happy Birthday die from coordinating papers that have been backed with Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere to the layered card front
4 –Using the Garden Notes Feverfew die, cut the pieces for seven flowers.
5 –Colour leaves and centers using Copic markers.
6 –Shape leaves, petals, and centers using Susan’s toolkit, leaf mat, and molding pad
7 –Adhere flowers to card front using Kid’s Choice glue.
8 –Using a
toothpick, dab glue onto the centers and sprinkle with yellow pollen. Allow to
dry and blow off excess.
Hello Crafty Friends! Christine here today with a project featuring Susan’s new Garden Notes Nasturtiums die set. I have had the bird cage for a while and have been wanting to do a project with it so when the nasturtium set came out I knew that it was perfect for the bird cage, purchased at a craft store.
Hi Everyone, Christine here. It is my turn to post. Since summer is winding down and the sunflowers are blooming here in Maine. I have decided to use Susan’s Garden Notes Sunflower 2 for my project. Sunflowers are such happy flowers – who doesn’t love them!
Hello my crafty friends, Christine here with another card I have designed using the Ultimate Glittered Napkin Technique. This technique is addicting, such fun and rewarding, and you will soon be looking at all napkins in a different way. I wish the glitter effect showed up better in photos as it really is sparkly.
Hello, it is Christine today with a card project using several of Susan’s Garden Notes dies and a background done with Distress Oxide Inks. My version of Love-In-A-Mist flowers is based on seeds I had bought called “Chocolate & Cream”(I think they may also be called “African Bride”). Unfortunately the seeds did not germinate as they were probably planted a little late, but I will try again for next year.
It is my turn to share a creation on the blog so I have chosen some of the dies from Susan’s Garden Notes newest release, the ShastaDaisy, Galvanized Bucket and Frame It – Ovals along with older releases Ivy and Ostrich Fern.
Hi everyone, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today and I’m sharing a trinket box that I made to hold some treasures in my craft room. This box is much more fun than a simple bag or envelope to hold small items that I have cleaned up from my work table while working on a project. I have been wanting to make some of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s flowers and this was the perfect time. It was fun and simple to make – so let’s get started.
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.
