Susan's Garden Die Collection Inspirational Mini Hop :D

Day 4 of my CRaFTi Advent series is a little different, it's actually a blog hop!! My first ever blog hop, with a bunch of wonderful crafters from the Tonic UK Design Team :D There's a list a little further down, telling you where you are on the hop, and who to go and see next :D We all decided to do a unique project using the fabulous Susan's Garden Club dies from Tonic! And we decided to do it now because all the dies are currently on the WednesDIES deals on the Tonic Websites, with a massive 20% - 30% reduction on the bundles, which is phenomenal for such a new release of dies :D We've also got a giveaway happening too, so scroll to the end of my blog post for all the details :D

I decided to do a modern twist on the die sets, using them as apertures with a Nuvo background :D I also did a Christmas card duo with the dies a little while ago, so I'll add that below too :D Susan makes absolutely stunning realistic looking flowers with her die sets, but I wanted to show that they can still be used in other ways too :D I will be attempting some of the proper realistic style type flowers, as I just invested in some Pan Pastels, so I can do some of Susan's fab techniques :D :D

Here's all the blog hop participants :D Hope you enjoy hopping along :D The list is at the end too :D
