What is your favorite Susan's Garden Die


 Look at all these beautiful flowers that I created with the new Sizzix flower dies by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.   These dies are available at Joan's Gardens.  Joan and I are interested in knowing which flower is your favorite, so if you leave both of us a comment, a winner will be chosen, from a random drawing, and announced Wednesday morning.  The winner will receive the "Susan's Gardens" LEAVES set worth $18.99.  You can see this die set in Joan's post.

  All these flowers were very easy to create with Susan's new improved flower petals and tools. As I mentioned in a previous post, Susan Tierney-Cockburn designed the petals on the Punch Bunch punches we started creating flowers with.   All these dies come in a separate little plastic envelope for storage and with instructions. When you get your flower dies, I suggest you write the name of the flower on the back of each die, just in case you have more than one set open and get them mixed up.  There is a diagram of each die in the package on the back of the instruction sheet, but I found it a great help to have each die marked - I used a fine point Sharpie. I do want to mention again that the new Sizzix Flower Tool Kit that Susan designed is much improved over the old tool kit.  It has everything you need.  This kit has a special tool and pad just for adding a realistic look to your leaves and petals, that you did not get in the old kit. I will talk about some of the features of these tools in upcoming posts.

I can't tell you which one of these flowers is my favorite because I loved creating all of them. Which one is your favorite?  I created three different colors of the dogwood so thought I would start showing you my card collection featuring the white dogwood.


The background paper I used is from the Graphic 45 "Secret Garden" paper pad.  The border around the card was created with the Martha Stewart "Vintage Floral" punch set.  In the center of the card I placed the Spellbinders "Medallion One" doily and in the center of it I attached the Spellbinders "Lace Doily Motif".  The pretty dogwoods were created with the Sizzix "Susan's Garden Dogwood" die set.   Don't they look like real flowers!  The sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread "Birthday Blessings" stamp set.

I will be posting more cards this week showing off the beautiful flowers from "Susan's Garden" dies.  If you would like a chance to win the "Garden Leaves" die set, be sure to leave a comment blog on my blog below, and then go over to Joan's Gardens and leave a comment.

I have to say the rose is my favorite but it was hard to decide.

Selma, these flowers are so real looking and are just amazingly beautiful. I love them all. I think the rose is my all time favorite, but all of them are so exquisite! Wow!

Vonnie said...

Selma I think you are amazingly talented artist. All of these flowers are so beautiful made that it is so hard to pick just one because they all look so real! I have to choose the Roses I think. I like several others for different reasons but I think the prettiest one would be the Rose.

Diane Schultz said...

Selma, all of these flowers are just gorgeous!! Hard to choose but I think my favorite is the Dogwood. Thanks for being an inspiration and sharing all your stunning projects.
Crafty hugs!!

Your chart is wonderful, Selma. All the flowers are stunning, but the dogwood is my favorite - at least, right now!

WOW! Fabulous work Selma! I don't think there is a better 'flower maker' out there than you!!You have perfected these paper flowers to the point of not being able to tell REAL from PAPER! Fantastic and such an inspiration!
I have two favorites ... the dogwood and the rose. So beautiful and life like!
Thanks for all you ladies do!!

Jan said...

You make your flowers look so real that you would think it was just cut from the bush. My favorites are the rose and the peony.

kc said...

My favorite is the rose. But all of the flowers are so beautiful. I would love to make flowers like you do.

Sharon said...

I love coming to your blog and look and all the beautiful flowers you have done. I think the dogwood will be my favorite.

Diane said...

These are gorgeous Selma....I love the Rose the best, but not only do I love roses, you always make the best ones!!! I bought the tool kit and 4 of the new dies from Joan....and can hardly wait to start on them!!!

Jenée said...

They are all so BEAUTIFUL, and I've been a fan of Susan's flowers for some time. My favorite is the Dogwood. I'm a Georgia gal, and the dogwoods are abundant in my state. In the spring they are so beautiful (except this year, for some odd reason, there was an unknown state-wide problem and they didn't bloom well). Anyway, as much as I luv ALL the flowers, I have to stick with the Dogwood (with the Lily being my second choice).

Peggy said...

Hi Selma
Love the chart you did. All the flowers are beautiful as they always are. You do such beautiful work. I would have to say my favorite is the poppy. My sister has the most beautiful poppies in her yard.

Vail said...

Selma, you've done a fabulous job with these new dies. My favorite is the rose. Thank you for sharing. I love to see what you've made and your instructions are so helpful.

Selma, awesome chart you did , thanks, I blew it up and it is hanging on my desk for reference, also been scanning the net for some good pictures, for adding color in the right places.
You card is so very pretty, and as of right now, I love them all, but the Dogwood has pulled ahead in the lead of my favorites, your flower samples are also awesome, especially that gorgeous rose!!

Thanks for everything, have a great week, and thanks for the chance to win, now I just hope my health and pain levels will hold and allow me to get some crafting done, and a card for this weeks challenge, tried last week but I lost steam. Your talents are the best inspiration, THANKS
hugs

Hi Selma, I have really enjoyed your blog since I started with flower making. I am from South Africa and just love creating flowers and I Hv found your tutorials so helpful. Thanks.
As for my favorite flower, well, as many have said, they are all stunning, but I must pick one, so I will go for the hibiscus because of the stunning shades of pinks and the yellow centre and gorgeous leaves. Looks real to me. Thanks. Xoxo

CraftinGranny said...

All of your flowers are amazing Selma and so beautifully created. My favorite of course is the rose. I've tried and tried to duplicate your flowers and mine just never turn out or even look close to the same. Got the punches, now some of the dies, and I still can't get it....LOL

Thanks for sharing your beautiful talent. "Hugs" Carol

Cheryl W said...

All of these flowers are amazing, but since you're insistent we select one, I'd have to say the poppy. There's just something about them - they have such drama - and I can't help but imagine making them in a deep, but vibrant, red. Thanks for the chance to win.

Linda Carson said...

WOW! You're one creative artist! Love your style! My favorite is the Hibiscus. (Remember, I'm limited to choosing just one....) They are all stunning!

Lorna Baumann said...

Too many gorgeous flowers to choose from. But, if I just have to, the deep red tulips are my fave.

Wouah super carte et toutes ces fleurs qui appellent enfin le printemps. Je craque pour DOGWOOD
et en second, beaucoup plus fin et petit, je trouve Flovering quince superbe également. Elle me fait penser à une fleur de cerisier, et vu sa taille, idéale pour une jolie carte sans trop de fioritures. Merci pour tout ce partage et amitiés de FRANCE

Susan said...

All of the flowers are truly outstanding - fantastic job. As I stated in Joan's blog, although I love the rose as a flower I think your job and am truly amazed at the dogwood and forsythia. WOW

Selma you've certainly got all these wonderful blossoms down to an art. Having to choose just one seems like a crime but I would pick the sunflower as it's such a stately flower & a great backdrop for any garden or along fences.
Always love your wonderful tutorials as it makes your flowers "come alive" ...
Hugs, Janie

I love all of them and maybe one day I'll try to make a bouquet ! My fave is the white dogwood, I can feel the Spring in it ! Cris

Colorado Crafter said...

It's nearly impossible to put one of these beautiful flowers above the others. I usually choose roses as my favorite but when I saw that Ms. Cockburn had included the dogwood in her collection, I was thrilled. That's my favorite because of the memories it brings back of my mother.

deb huffman said...

They are all so beautiful

Sabrina said...

This is really hard for me to pick just one because they really truly are all very beautiful! I guess though if I have to pick only one I would have to pick the .. Oh I can't do it.... Ok I will pick the Sunflower. Thank you so m uch for this lovely opportunity to win.

WOW, these flowers are all so beautiful. Would love to try and make them all. But I have to say, my favorite is the Hibiscus, reminds me of being in Hawaii. :)

-Agnes- said...

Really lovely! My favourite has got to be the pink rose.

Charlotte Zweigoron said...

Being from Atlanta, GA, I wavered a bit on that lovely Dogwood. But my real favorite is the Pansy/Violet. I have been trying to make one from a YouTube tutorial that uses a butterfly punch. That particular punch has been discontinued and I have looked and looked for something similar. Now I am just going to bite the bullet and buy one from Joan!

Frann said...

Selma, all your flowers are beautiful, as usual. For many years I too have been making Susan's flowers with punches. Dies will make it so much easier. Although it's a difficult decision, I will have to say the dogwood flowers are my favorites because I miss the dogwood trees I had when I lived on the east coast.

Alice said...

My favorite flower is the carnation ...oops, it's not in this collection, yet! Of the flower dies available so far, I like the dogwood the best. I hope the collection continues to grow!

helen garrington said...

Wow I love them all but my favourite is the rose and carnation. Can't wait to get my hands on some of these!

I love the daffodil, as it reminds me of the old time phone and that spring has sprong. I look forward to your emails. Thank you for posts as they are beautiful.

The dogwood has always been a favorite of mine but I also love the roses. It would be hard to choose between the 2 of them.

Please never stop making them and a big thank you for sharing your beautiful creations with us lesser gifted ones!

I have loved Sunflowers ever since my grandmother had them growing all over her yard. She claims she didn't plan them, "they just showed up one day and decided to stay". I have always wished some would show up in my yard but maybe they will show up as a Sizzix creation! Thanks for sharing your creations and for sharing your blog with us.

These are gorgeous. It would be hard to pick a favorite. I like the rose, sunflower, poppy and dogwood. Your dogwood card is gorgeous.

All the flowers are beautiful. I think I will choose the forsythia, because it is something you don't see often. Thank you for doing a display of the flowers. I appreciate being able to see the sizes of the flowers.

I love to see your blog each day. Everything you do is so beautiful. I love all of the flowers but roses are my favorite.

Oh my gosh... How have I never seen these beautiful creations before? Absolutely wonderful to see how paper can be shaped and moulded to make these gorgeous blooms! I love the rose and dogwood (if I HAD to choose) but they are all lovely. Thanks for the chance to win and start my own little garden!
Hugs, Shannah xox

I am a nature nut for sure! And I love all flowers, but do have some favorites! Roses top my list! Apple blossoms, lilacs, lily of the valley, hyacinths, and the list goes on! This would be so great to win, and would make my life much more simple! Thank you, and love your work!
