Sizzix, Susan's Garden "Poinsettia" flower dies. I do own a lot of different poinsettia dies, but this by far is my favorite because you can create very realistic poinsettias in different sizes. It all depends on which poinsettia petal die cuts you decide to use. You can make large poinsettias for arrangements like the one on this lantern, beautiful poinsettias for gift packages, any size poinsettias for greeting cards, etc. You can use different things to create your flowers such as 60# or 80# card stock, watercolor paper, vellum, glitter paper, etc. The ideas are endless. I'm sure you will love working with Susan's Garden poinsettia dies.
Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit. It has special tools for creating the shapes needed. The first leaf on the upper left is just die cut; second leaf shows line drawn down the center, on the back, using the leaf tool and leaf pad. This pad allows you to get a nice drawn line on your petals when using the leaf tool. Next I fold the leaf in half (bottom sides together) and crease down the scored line with my finger nails. This gives that center seam extra dimension to define that center vein. Next open the leaf, and on the front, draw the side veins with the leaf tool. You can further shape the petals/leaves by using the self-closing tweezers that are included in the tool kit.
Susan's Garden Pan Pastels down the center with the pointed tool.
The two small pink poinsettias are different sizes and to accomplished this I used the calyx from the poinsettia die set for one, using the two smallest petals in the "poinsettia" die set, and the calyx from the Susan's Garden "Mini Petals" for the smallest one using the smallest petals.
I have created all the flowers in the new Susan's Garden Collection and will be posting each one individually and doing tutorials as needed. You can see all the new products in the Susan's Garden Collection at this link.
