Pacific Ocean Background Card

Hi bloggers!  Today's video showcases the Pacific Ocean collection.  You can use the tag to create a pretty decorative detail inside the background frame.  

The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 1/2" in size. All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue. I hope you are having a much earned rest after your blog marathon, although I think you find it hard to slow down.
Dragonsnap, I hope you have a wonderful time in the Dom Republic. Tim and I had a great holiday there 5 years ago, it is a beautiful place. You will miss the family and new baby, but you need a break so enjoy.
Elaine, I hope Andrews treatment went well. He is so close to the end of it, not long now.
Tina, I'm okay, chest is still playing up but that is due to the damp and cold, roll on the warmer weather.
Yvonne, so much good advice for you, we are all thrilled for you, and want you to be comfortable. Bet Steve and Bryan are smiling down on you. I too love the Butterfly cascade due, good choice.
June, hope the knee is still doing well.
To all you wonderful blog buddies, I send my hugs, especially our missing friends, hoping you are all okay. NannaTina, special thoughts.
I love this blog.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning dear Sue. From the still this sample looks absolutely beautiful and I shall watch the tutorial when my two are at the park - once my keeper rises from his pit !
I just want to say that I'm thinking of you this time of year xx
Looking forward to watching you put this beautiful work of art together when I can. In the meantime my hugs for you are on their way along with caring thoughts xxx 🌸

Dragonsnap2 said...

Fabulous card Sue. Hope you're having a well-earned rest now but I'm sure your mind is still buzzing with new ideas for new cards and the next release!

Thanks for everyone's good wishes. We've been going to Dom Rep for many years now and had actually decided not to go there again as it's getting so built up but we couldn't resist the opportunity to meet up with our friends when they suggested it. I know I can Skype from the hotel and will also be able to follow this blog but timing will be very different, probably around lunchtime here, just after breakfast there.

Baby now has a name - Lola.

Crafty hugs to all.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a beautiful card this morning Sue, will watch the video later when I have my breakfast. Love the monochrome colours, when I look at the shapes within the background die it reminds me of the waves washing over the beach before going back into the sea, what imagination you do conjure up with your dies. Special hugs to you too.

Pam, please wrap up warm, I know that it may look OK out there but it really does blow a gale at this time of the year. Yes knee is fine, got appointment with the consultant on Wednesday, I am hoping he is going to sign me off, fingers crossed.

Dragonsnap2 - Lola what a lovely name, how you will miss her and the rest of the family, but as you say you have skype, have a lovely holiday, it sounds a really nice place.

Elaine, how is Andrew doing?, Tina T and Owen, thinking of you both, hugs to anyone else that need them.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

I like monochrome cards. Just beautiful

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Just watched the video Sue, and love the way you used the tag in the middle to double cut. Yet again I know I'm not imaginative enough to have thought about doing that, so again thank you for your never ending tips and ideas you give everyday. Where would we be without you showing us how to get more out of your beautifully designed dies xx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear sue and fellow Wilsonettes,

So graceful! OK you've convinced me to buy some black cardstock and to wish for the Pacific Ocean background.
We love you right back, Pam, and you're a lot of the reason I love this blog too.
Today was card club at the Paradise RV resort. One volunteer taught two cards, and everybody was free to use the Cuttlebugs and a Big Shots machine owned by the club. I showed them the lattice frames set and two shadow boxes, and many wanted to cut the lattice. They had made lattices by weaving paper strips on a diagonal.
I wrote the blog address and your name and Creative Expressions and the North American distributor on the dry erase board, and people copied it down by taking a photo.
I was elated at doing papercrafting on my vacation! No need to visit the Grand Canyon, because we saw it on a camping trip as kids. When my sister visits Dad in two weeks, however, she'll hike down and spend the night at the bottom, then hike back up. It's three times farther coming back up because the trail takes a more gentle incline. I was shocked to learn that the rim of the Grand Canyon, which seems like ground level, is higher than the highest mountain on the East Coast, and the bottom is higher than the highest point in Rhode Island!
Pam, I'm pretty sure that no one can drive from New Hampshire to the Grand Canyon in two days, even if they take turns and drive without stopping.
While I was making cards, Dad was in the woodworking shop. He took me to see the "candy store," the place where the woodworkers buy their exotic woods. Most were boards, but ebony was $50 for a little stick. Maybe 1 by 1 by 12 inches. It looked like black plastic.
Saturday is the big gem show in Tucson. Going from paper and scissors to rocks.

Morning Sue,

An interesting card today, beautiful dies and flowers.

Lola, what a beautiful name for your new granddaughter Dragonsnap2.

Still costume sewing for the panto, I got dumped with some more to finish off last night and they were still cutting out the 'walk down' costumes. I had offered a month a go to do them but was told they were done. Something wrong there somewhere, a miscalculation I expect.

Hugs to all in need of one today for whatever reason.
Love 7 hugs

Morning Sue,
Fabulous card, love the way you have used the tag in the middle, why can't I think of using a die like that.
The black gives the card a real pop.
Thank you for another great video.

Hi Sue, a beautiful and elegant card, love the colours and dies used. As always a great video too. Have a great day all. Bx

Scottydog said...

Lovely card Sue. The colour combination is beautiful, you certainly have a knack with finding the right colours. I like the way you seem to have cut either the centre piece twice or another flower to give a shadow effect to the centre of the card. All will be revealed no doubt when I watch the video, but husband is chomping at the bit to get out so will have to save until later! Thanks Sue.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes,
Now this is a bonnie card Sue and just enough black on it for me and to make an impact. I love the wisteria colour of card, well i think its wisteria, it could be a sot dove grey and the Atlantic Ocean background die is gorgeous but since i need the full set i will get my wee frame and butterflies dies first and then contemplate which set is next on the list. The striped nastrusiums and leaves just look so lovely in the opposing corners with no need for a bow to act as a finishing touch. That fine edge of black and behind the main piece is just right for it today and i know my friend would love this card even if he is a man. Thank you flower for bringing such a bright glow to the days with your beautiful WOW's and even though there are a few that i wouldn't go for, they still give you inspiration in their own way. Have a good weekend flower and have some playtime.
PP, now i don't drink either(long story but safer on my bones not to) and i can have a wonderful time, even if i do get a bit carried away and the fun that you can have not and seeing all the ones that do, that get miracluous with it, is so much better fun. You do your main worries flower with your wee windfall and make your home warm and enviting again and then have some fun with the rest of it flower, i think you deserve it and the friend will be smiling down with a happy smile that you have made the absolute best out of his gift.
Maureen, how could you let the side down with that touching letter to PP. What would George say if you had some young man come around like that all muscle and virile, lol.
Donita, i'm glad that you and dad are having a wonderful time on your holiday, it sounds fantastic and yes Ebony does look just like plastic albeit dear plastic. To see you dad smile and happy at his woodworking is a memory that lasts. Mine is my daddy sunbathing in his consveratory(mum's greenhouse) on a sun lounger with his cord trousers rolled up to his knees and his polo shirt second button undone, hee hee hee. He would only ever go around with the top button undone but dressing down for the sun, he would make an exception and unbutton the second one. Thank you for telling us about the Grand Canyon flower, it is on my dream list of somewhere that i would dearly love to go to and you describing it makes it more real than just seeing it on the television. I love when the various people describe where they are and what it is like as for a lot of us we well never be there so it comes alive for us, so thank you flower for bringing something else alive.
Well girls my hills have been pinched again by that horrible mist/fog and the smirry rain that is coming down, so there is nothing else for it but i will just need to stay in and play, what a hardship i have to suffer. My AB's are not finished and i'm not any clearer than i was on Monday so i think i will need to see doc next week to see if he can do anything else for it.
Sending hugs to Tina & Owen, Elaine, Andrew and Helen, WHeelybad and all the other Wilsonettes that need, want or could do with them,
love and crafty hugs

Hello Sue,
Love this card, the colours, design and dies used are perfect.
Lynn L and Elaine - we could be the Liberty Belles!!!
Donita, what a fabulous description of the Grand Canyon, thank you.
Dragonsnap, just remember that old song "Whatever Lola Wants"!! Love the name of your new granddaughter.
Yvonne, I don't think the requests were extravagant in my begging letter. In fact I've just thought of something else!!! ha ha
Laine, get your order in quick, you are after all her very, very, best friend!!
Thinking of Pam - wrap up and I mean that in the nicest possible way, Elaine and sending good wishes to Owen, June S - no high kicks yet!
Norah, Mr K would probably help me to pack to run away ha ha. Now you be good, look after yourself and see you soon!!
Diane, don't run yourself ragged today.

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
Another lovely card which can be easily adapted using your other background dies. For once we have a lovely sunny day after weeks of dull dreary ones. Norah I love hearing about your beautiful hills and Donita you sound as if you and your dad are having a great time. Elaine Tina and NanaTina you are in my thoughts.

Maria Alder said...

Hi Sue and everyone.
The Pacific Ocean die is high on my wish list but as usual it
changes every time you showing a tutorial or card on your blog.
TFS all your outstanding cards every day x

Pam- wishing you better and if going out do wrap up warm x
Dragonsnap- have a wonderful holiday, of course you will miss
baby Lola (lovely name) but you be soon back x
Pp, Yvonne- how fabulous to get some money. Yes, use some to fix
your boiler etc. so you don't need to worry and then maybe use
some for a nice holiday and if any left get some Sue dies x
Laine- how are you ? could you perhaps keep an eye on Pp so she
don't go mad shopping just for shoes and handbags.:) You asked about
my holiday : I went for a week to Austria and had the best winter
holiday for a long time. Sandra have very kindly posted some photos
on her blog (Cotswold Crafter) it was magical and between -2c and
-14c the whole week. It sound cold but it is dry air and if you dressed
right you manage to have a wonderful time.x
Donita- your visit to dad sound great too and the Grand Canyon is a place
I would love to see one day. Have a safe journey home.x
Elaine- sending you, Andrew and Helen many hugs and hope all goes well x
Tina- good luck for Owen in his new job, hope he's ok. Sending you hugs x
Maureen and Diane- when you finished with the oil can could you bring it
to me. Creaking more then ever lately, is it trying to tell me something ? x
Myra- don't say it! hihi. Hope you well x
Have no Mojo or energy over a few days now so no crafting have been done ,any
idea's what can help ?
Sending many hugs to you all and hope your Saturday is good-ish as it can be
