Today, Elizabeth Craft Designs is introducing Susan Tierney-Cockburn's new release of Fall and Christmas, CountryScapes, Garden Notes, and Susan's Garden dies which will be available later this month. Autumn is just around the corner and Susan has dies to create beautiful cards for this season. Today my card is designed using CountryScapes Flora 4 and CountryScapes Woods 3.
This is a 6"x6" card. In this release, Susan has a new Cloud and Grass die. This is a die set you will use a lot. You can use the dies to cut stencils out of either card stock or acetate to create beautiful backgrounds, and/or you can use the die cuts for actual die cut clouds and/or grass. I created a stencil and sponged blue ink on the top of this card to create clouds in the sky. Next I die cut the grass and used one part to sponge on green grass below the sky, then used the other side of the the die cut for actual dimensional grass.
The cornstalk die, from the Flora 4 - Sunflower set, was used to cut 6 cornstalks. The tops of some of the cornstalks was cut between each point to create corn silk. The stalks were tied together with thread to form the stack. The sunflowers and pumpkins are also in the Flora 4 die set. The wheelbarrow is a die in the Woods 3 set. I die cut four rows of grass from the Clouds/Grass die set and glued to together, off setting the blades of grass. They were glued to the bottom section of the card. The cornstalks, pumpkins, wheelbarrow and sunflowers were glued behind the grass. The wheelbarrow set also includes small leaves. A few pumpkins were glued in the wheelbarrow then some of of the small leaves glued around the base of the pumpkins.
One of Susan's new "Seeds of Thought" stamps was used inside one of the ECD Peel Off Sticker Frames.
