Susan's Garden Black-Eyed Susans

Today I have a card created with the Sizzix Susan's Gardens "Black-Eyed Susan" die.

In this picture, on the left,  you can see the Black-Eyed Susan created following the instruction that came with the die, and the one on the right shows my style of Black-Eyed Susan.  In this picture I did not color the petals like I did the ones on the card.

I used just one of the largest black-eyed Susan flower die cuts from this set, for my flower.   With the die cuts on this die you do not have to glue each petal to form the flower.   It was die cut using white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  The Susan's Garden "Sun" punch was used to punch about 10 suns, and glued them together to form a cone shape.  I alternated a dark yellow and dark brown to get the variegated look.

Here is a closeup

The design paper behind the doily is from the Echo Park Paper Co "Country Drive".  The doily is the Cheery Lynn "Canadian Kaleidoscope".   In the center of this doily, I added one of the Spellbinders die cuts from the "Floral Doily Motifs" die set.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Grand Sentiments" stamp set.  The little border on the bottom of the card is the Cheery Lynn "Anastasia" border.  To complete this card I added a silk bow created with the "Bow Easy".  

When you work with these dies, keep in mind that you can make a variety of flowers with most of them.  I love figuring out lots of ways to get more and more variety of flowers for my paper flower garden!  I would love to see some of your creative ways of using the flower dies from "Susan's Garden" dies.

Oh my goodness, these flowers are wonderful. You just keep cranking them out. I've always said, if I lived close to you I would raid the die area of your craft room! It must be a treasure trove!
