I have great news. The new Susan's Garden Fall 2014 Collection is now available. Here are the 17 new dies:
Cistus (Rock Rose)
White Pine Pinecones
3 7/8 square Grid Works (create a box)
3-D Book (box)
Woodland Leaves (10 leaves)
You can see all of Susan's new Fall 2014 dies at this LINK
I have anxiously been awaiting Susan's new dies, however they arrived the afternoon before my husband went to the hospital for a knee replacement. He ended up with blood clots so has been in the hospital much longer than expected, so I have not had much time to work in my craftroom. However, since I know you are all probably working on Christmas cards, I wanted to take time create and show you the beautiful Susan's Garden Pinecone and Pine Branches dies and the Christmas Holly dies. If you go to the link above you will be able to view the videos Susan did showing you step by step instructions for these dies.
Here are the pinecones I created with Susan's dies. The pinecone and branches are beautiful just the way Susan's created them, but I thought I would show you an additional idea to give them a snowy effect. I added Ranger Texture Paste and Distress Stickles Dry Glitter..
You are going to love all the different sizes of realistic holly in this set. Susan will show you a tip for creating the glossy look of the holly leaf and also how to create the berries.
Here is a close up of the holly and pinecones I created. On the holly leaves I added Viva Inka Gold paste.
In this picture I have created a Susan's Garden lavender poinsettia, with gold highlights, and surrounded it with Susan's Garden pine branches and pine cones.
My husband is expected to be in the hospital for another two weeks, but as I can, I will be working on creating all the other flowers and boxes with Susan's Fall 2014 Collection. I will post a board showing all the new flowers, as I have done in the past.
Have fun creating!
