Susan's Garden Fuchsia

 When I started creating flowers, out of card stock, I never dreamed I would be able to create a Fuchsia.  Every Spring I look forward to getting a large hanging basket of Fuchsia for my front porch.  They are so beautiful.  Susan Tierney-Cockburn has developed Fuchsia dies, gives us instructions, and has a video to help us create her very realistic Fuchsia flowers.  The instructions for creating the flower are included in the Fuchsia die package, and here is the link to her Fuchsia video.  Once you watch her step by step video, you will find it is very easy to assemble these beautiful flowers. 

In this picture I am showing the plain bird cage and all the shaped Susan's Garden  Fuchsia flower pieces I will be using to decorate the bird cage.  I find it helpful to have all the pieces colored and shaped before I start assembling each individual flower.

I found it is important to watch Susan's video for easy assembly.  The first time I created this flower, the video was not published and I have to tell you that it was much easier this time following her steps, than trying to figure it out on my own.    In this picture, you can see the calyx (base) glued together with the wire inserted.  Starting with this step, you get perfect flowers every time!  I know you will enjoy creating this beautiful flower.  The Fuchsia comes in many different colors.  This bright pink and purple happens to be my favorite.

Here is another picture of the Fuchsia on top of the cage. Don't they look realistic!   I have added a flameless candle in the bottom and surrounded it with a variety of other Susan's Garden flowers.  The small flowers added are:  small roses created with "Mini Petals"; Mini Lilies; "Violets", and mini daises.

This is so gorgeous!! I don't have this die, but I have a few of Susan's other flower dies and I have to say that I've been a bit intimidated to get them out and try them. I know I need to just take some time and watch the videos and then just jump in and do it. All of her flowers can be made to look so realistic.
