I am very excited to announce that I am now designing for Susan's Garden and will be working with Susan Tierney-Cockburn. I love her line of products.
My first love (in crafting) has always been working with flowers. I started designing flowers with Susan's Punch Bunch punches and learned her techniques by following instructions in her "Paper Bouquet" book. There are so many ways to use these dimensional flowers. You always get oohs and awes when you create these beautiful flowers.
Last May, the first 16 Susan's Garden dies were released through Sizzix and very soon, 15 additional flowers will be available. In order to create beautiful flowers with her dies, Susan also designed a Flower Tool Kit and Plastic Flower Pots, available through Sizzix. Other products Susan has are Pan Pastels which include a tray of ten colors, The Susan's Garden Viva "Paper Pen" collection, and Woodland Scenics "Pollen" for creating stamens, and the Susan's Garden "Ladybug" kit.
I received my new collection of Susan's Garden Flower Dies and many were used in the birdcage. I created "Fall" flowers from both collections. Can you tell which ones are from the first collection and which ones are new? From the first collection I used the Susan's Garden "Sunflower", "Blackeyed Susan", and "Mini Petals." From the new collection I used the "Gazania", "Dahlia", and "Yarrow" dies.
Here is a closeup of the flowers.
I have been busy creating flowers in the rest of the collection. Very soon I will be posting individual flower pictures with instructions.
I am excited to have this new Susan's Garden flower collection and I am sure you will too.
