I have been working with Susan for years and it is so amazing, how with each release, the flowers are not only easier to assemble, but look even more realistic. The Button Chrysanthemums in this new Spellbinders release look like you just picked them from the garden.
Today I covered a 6x6 inch card with a piece of First Edition Paper-Gardenia design paper. I found this design paper at JoAnn's Craft Store.
To create the oval background, I used die cuts from Spellbinders Fancy Edged Ovals and Picot Petite Oval Etched die sets by Becca Feeken. The white oval was attached with Foam Squares.
Using the Foliage & Ladybug die set, five eucalyptus stems were die cut using white card stock. Using green ink, they were sponged dark on the stem end and lighter on the tips of the leaves. A rust ink was lightly sponged at the base of the leaves.
In the Foliage & Ladybug die set, there is a berry branch die. That was die cut once, colored green and berries added. I used white pearls for the berries. They were colored with a mix of deep red and dark purple Alcohol markers. I first used the purple marker then swiped the red over the purple to kind of give it a two tone appearance. A dot of glue was placed on the branch, then a berry added.
Susan's Button & Daisy Chrysanthemum die set was used to create three different shades of purple chrysanthemums. Through Spellbinders, Susan has YouTube Videos showing how to create her Autumn Floral flowers. Here is the LINK for the Button Chrysanthemum YouTube Video.
I have included links to the products I used below. I appreciate your support in ordering through my blog.
It has been a lot of fun using Susan's new Autumn Floral die sets from Spellbinders. I hope you are enjoying seeing all the beautiful floral arrangements you can create.
