WOW! How to choose a favorite would be impossible! They are all so beautiful and real! But if I had to pick I would have to say the pansy-it is one of my favorites to plant in the spring-I love looking at their funny faces!

Being a flower gardener, the choice is hard...but I have to say that Roses hold a special place in my heart, so it has to be the beautiful Rose, she created.....but they are all lovely!!

My favorite flower is carnations but since you dont have that listed I will have to say the poppy and Rose comes next, although they all are beautiful. Love the ideas and creations you both put into it.

Eileen Lucas said...

I love all the flowers...but that dogwood and Rose are stunning. I guess it would have to go to the Rose as the favorite..it looks so real.

The flowers are all gorgeous- I will have to go with the dogwood too- and a close 2nd are the roses : ) My daughter is in China teaching, so I am drawn to oriental cards now, and the dog wood looks like the plum tree blossom too : ) Thanks for a chance to win!

Darlene (SCS:akronstamperdpk) said...

WOW! Fabulous work Selma! I don't think there is a better 'flower maker' out there than Selma ... she has perfected these paper flowers to the point of not being able to tell REAL from PAPER! Fantastic and such an inspiration!
I have two favorites ... the dogwood and the rose. So beautiful and life like!
Thanks for all you ladies do!!

The flowers are amazing and more realistic they could not be. The rose looks so real I can smell it from here.

Mary Lou said...

My favorite is the hibiscus. The blooms are so beautiful. Even if they do only last a day, another one always pops out the next day.I now live where there are too many deer who also seem to enjoy the blooms.

Sharman said...

I am with everyone else, all of them as just so beautiful that it is too hard to pick. I love the Rose of course and the sunflower and I could go on and on.....

Judy I, St. Louis MO said...

Ooh tough choice. The daffodil is gorgeous and I haven't see a die that does that. I'd have to say that's my favorite.

kc said...

These flowers are just amazing. I really love the rose. They are my favorite flowers.

Sharon said...

Wow I love all the flowers, they all look so real. Looking forward to owning the dog wood.

Jan said...

These flowers are all beautiful but my favorites are the rose and the peony. They look so real

Anonymous said...

They are all beautiful but I think the rose is the best, so realistic.

Vail said...

I love the rose as it is my favorite flower. Selma's done a fabulous job with these new dies. I've owned Susan's books for years and with the new dies it couldn't get any easier to make fabulous looking flowers.

Jenée said...

They are all so BEAUTIFUL, and I've been a fan of Susan's flowers for some time. I'm glad to see this new series of dies from her and Sizzix. My favorite is the Dogwood. I'm a Georgia gal, and the dogwoods are abundant in my state. In the spring they are so beautiful (except this year, for some odd reason, there was an unknown state-wide problem and they didn't bloom well). Anyway, as much as I luv ALL the flowers, I have to stick with the Dogwood (with the Lily being my second choice).

Peggy said...

Hi Joan,
You are one lucky lady to have Selma design for you! Selma does such a beautiful job creating her cards and boxes. I would have to say my favorite is the poppy. My sister has the most beautiful poppies in her yard and Selma has duplicated that beauty.

susan B said...

I love love love the pansies!!!

Andrene said...

I would have to pick the sunflower first but the hibiscus runs a close second! Selma is doing wonderful job with these dies!

Donna Przybylowski said...

Hi Joan,
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are still improving each day, will post you privately later, want to make some flowers!! With my new dies!!
So far I love them ALL!!!!!!!!
But I think my favorite is the Dogwood, going to make that one today, will post you a picture of the card when I am done, hopefully nothing takes place that takes me away from my craft room today, was supposed to go to the Dr., but their office canceled it till tomorrow, so hopefully a day of rest at crafting.

Thanks to Selma for the chart, I have also been watching most of Susan's videos on You tube.

Thanks for a chance to win!!! I love my dies!!!!

Hugs to you all.
Donna

Teresa said...

I love the pink dogwood, but the rose is my favorite.

Nan Cee said...

It is so hard to choose when they are all so pretty! I like the pink dogwood and the daisy!
Thanks for all your loving effort in supplying us with such great tools!

Brenda said...

All of the flowers are so beautiful it is hard to choose just one but I do really love the roses and the sunflowers - also the dogwoods. Selma, you did such a wonderful job on the flowers and making the chart. Joan, thanks for all you do to see that the latest and the greatest is available to us!

Caroline D. said...

Oh my... these are ALL gorgeous!! I really like the dogwood and I'd pick that first because dogwoods are one of my favorite springtime flowering tree. These dies have them perfect and Selma has created them so realistically.

The pink dogwood is my favorite, reminds me of my grandmothers house in Missouri. She had 3 of them in her yard.

Sherry said...

How Beautiful!!! It is hard to pick a fav out of all those beautiful flowers, lol, let's see, hummm, the rose, the poppy, the dogwood, lol! I like them all!!!

Suzy Christodoulo said...

Hi Joan, I am from South Africa and just love creating flowers and I Hv found Site very helpful. Thanks.
As for my favorite flower, well, as many have said, they are all stunning, but I must pick one, so I will go for the hibiscus because of the stunning shades of pinks and the yellow centre and gorgeous leaves. Looks real to me. Thanks. Xoxo

Char said...

Before I lost my Mother, roses where her all time favorite flowers. Your pink rose in this set is awesome as well as all of the flowers. Thank You for sharing your beautiful work.

I love all of the flowers. They are so lifelike and you do such a wonderful job making them. My very favorite is the Dogwood.

Sue D said...

Beautiful! My favorite is the sunflowers--they remind me of my grandma.

Shirley said...

The Dogwood is probably my favorite but it was a difficult choice. I'm a real rose fan and very traditional. However, I love any dogwood stamps, and now these flowers are gorgeous. Selma has done a fabulous job making them up. Joan, I hope you are feeling better. It's a long road with a knee replacement. I know from experience. Thanks for the chance to win the goodies. :0) Have a great week everyone!

These are all stunning , but if I have to pick a favourite then the Dogwood.

Fran said...

I love the dogwood card Selma made, my favorite is the dogwood..

Cheryl W said...

Every flower is amazing! I love the realistic leaves, too. If I have to choose, however, I would choose the poppy. It is dramatic and fragile, all at the same time. would love to make it with red CS. Thanks for the chance to win.

Linda Carson said...

WOW! Each flower is amazingly beautiful. My fav is the Hibiscus.

GAZ said...

All of Selma's flowers are awesome and especially the beautiful rose on the box. However, my favorite for me is the Dogwood. I think the leaf set would be so great to have. Thanks for all you share!

Lenoria said...

Love the roses!!

Janet said...

These flowers take my breath away! The daisies make me smile. The dogwood is sneaking up to a close second these days!

Selma is soooooo amazing! We are so blessed she shares her talents so freely.

Thank you

Memaw said...

Joan,

We all love our own favorite flower in this wonderful world of so many to choose from. The great thing about this new medium is it makes making the flowers Selma has always been so great at a little easier for all of us. I always know summer is just around the corner when my Forsythia bloom and that for me is the favorite because this makes making three demoniacal so easy for them.
Thanks for the opportunity to enter this contest.

Sharon said...

I love the mini daisy. I really hope that your feeling lots better by now.

I love everyone one of the flowers that Selma has created. She is just uber talented. I think though that for me the dogwood is my favourite as it just takes me right back to my childhood and seeing all the wild dogwood blossom on trees along the road and banks in and around my childhood home.
Thanks so much for sharing all your talent Selma.

Thr pink dogwood has always been a favorite of mine but I also love the roses. Very hard to choose.

Bette S said...

I love the roses! The are so beautiful and realistic. I can even smell them just looking at them! I have never seen anyone else make such beautiful flowers as you and Selma do. I know having the right tools help, but I think you two ladies have a certain knack to make them - something I do not have. Thank you for sharing such beautiful creations.

PatsyB said...

Always, my favorites are the Sunflowers! My grandmother had them in her yard and I so miss seeing them now that she is passed. I always look for them on the sides of the road when we are out and about. So much color that I know the Lord loved them too! Thanks for offering such a great gift. You are always too kind.

ParkNSlide said...

I like the dogwood flower.

Lenoria said...
