Floral Framed Fun

Hello everyone!  Finally back on dry land after the first ever Create and Craft Cruise!  Not to say that I have stopped swaying yet though!  I am having some issues with Blogger not allowing me to load extra pictures so I thought I would try to see if I could add some on the the bottom of each blog post this week so you can get a bit of the flavour from the cruise.  Starting with the card first, though.  I embossed the background of this card using the Heart Embossibility folder.  I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink to add a bit of colour to the milk coloured card.  I cut a frame using the largest of the Floral Oval dies and a large plain oval for the inside.  I mounted it up with some small pieces of foam and added Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA glue dots to the inside edge of the oval.  I cut five of the small die in the Aster Flower Topper set and inked each one while it was still in the die with Victorian Velvet.  I added a large pearl to all the centres and mounted them above and below my frame.  I cut a dozen of leaves from the Floral Tag set and arranged them around all the flowers for interest.  I dyed some American seam binding using the Victorian Velvet ink and added some pearls to the bow to use with my flowers.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with one of the ribbon banner dies, added some more ink and mounted it in the centre of my Oval frame.  I pierced the edges of the card to frame the entire piece and finish it off.

Here is a nice picture that I took of Nigel and Shaun with Sheila Halliwell from DoCrafts and Debbie Moore.  Sheila had borrowed Nigels captains hat for the photo and I think it suits her, don't you!  I will have more pics for you coming along in the next several days so be sure to check back.  The cruise was a lot of fun and I am really hoping they make it an annual event.  There were a few minor glitches which is to be expected for a first time, but I think everyone had a great time overall.  I know I did!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue
Once again, your crafty talent has brought us a little gem (pardon the pun) The colour of the paper/ ink is lovely, it's rich looking. I NEED new dies, but unfortunately my surplus finances have been ring fenced until the end of June!!
Roll on July!!!
In the meantime I'll have to adapt the dies I have to try this lovely card.

I'm glad you enjoyed the cruise, hope you don't suffer your sea legs for too long!
Take care

Hi Sue,

I received some dies I had ordered yesterday which includes the aster die and I can see I will great use from it so today's card is very appropriate. Mt immediate impression was how striking it looked with your colour choice. I'm glad you enjoyed the cruise though no doubt it was a lot of hard work - and hard playing - along the way.

love from Jackie D

Hi Sue
back from my water filled holiday too, mine was from the sky lol. Would love to have gone on the cruise. Love the photo. Well i have missed some smashing cards. haven't touched any crafting for over a week. Well did buy some for the stash (have to when u see a bargan)lol. Skeleton leaves, two dies, Glitter wire, and foil with sequins cut out forgot what u call it. (this is controlled for me lol).
Just had quick flick through all the cards i missed and wow wish i had seen the shows. Amazing. Think i have to get the heart embossing folder, love it. Love the ribbon flags, Good way to use up those bits that are not quite big enough for a bow. Waste nothing. Well loving the flowers you have been doing. makes cards look so different. Smashing blog to come home to, like Christmas , Thanks for sharing your great ideas. Now what do i try first lol

sue, just to say i love all your cards. you are such an inspiration. the other day i was in the middle of eating my baked spud when an idea struck and had to act on it there and then. unfortnutly it did not come out as planned, however if i find the right ribon im sure that i will be happy with it. todays card will form the basis of a card that i will try and get my 4 yr old lad to help me make tomorrow, esp if it is another wet day. thanks for you ideas and keep them comming

Hi Sue, Glad you enjoyed your trip. Lovely card. I do love those floral ovals, they are top of my wish list now. So versatile and it looks like you love them too.
