Fire And Ice Technique


Hi bloggers!  I just couldn't wait to show this card and technique as it is just so pretty( sorry about the glare in the pic, there are some closeups  below that are better).  They had a sneak peek at the demo day in Scotland as this card was made especially for that purpose.  I did get to show it again on yesterday's Tool Shed show and it looks equally as pretty in other colours of the gilding flakes too.  I named the technique "Fire and Ice" since the gilding flakes look a bit like fire with all the different colours coming out, and then it is covered with our new Glitter Jewels called "Iced Snow".  I started with a piece of black card and the Secret Garden background stamp by Justrite.  Using the flake and glitter glue by Cosmic Shimmer, I covered the stamp by just picking up the glue on to a piece of cut and dry foam and tapping it all over the stamp.  I laid the black card over the stamp, gave it a quick rub and peeled it away.  This is a glue, remember, so if you take too long, it will actually glue your card and it will tear as you pull away, so don't dawdle!  Leave it aside and clean your stamp next.  The glue won't dry until you put something on to it (It just stays very tacky), but the glue will adhere to your stamp and make it very mucky if you leave it on there so rinse it off straight away.  I used the Summer Meadow gilding flakes here and just lightly rubbed them over the image using a piece of rubit scrubit pad.  You will want to refine them by lightly rubbing in a circular motion to remove the excess flakes.  You can easily put them back in the pot for later use too so no waste.  use a tissue and dust away all the particles then cover it with a piece of self adhesive sticky sheet.  Peel the backing liner off and cover it with the Iced Snow.  Use your finger to take any excess off, then you have a gorgeous piece you can cut to whatever size you desire.  I matted my piece on another piece of black card, then cut a milk piece using the Scallop border dies on either side.  I matted that on another piece of black card before adding a double milk mat with a pierced inner layer.  I stamped my sentiment from the Justrite Floral Thank You set and cut it into a strip with a forked end.  I added a matching black mat to it and gave it a bit of motion by putting a bit of a wave in it.  I made a Delicate Aster flower out of the three largest sizes of the die and added two of the inner pieces in gold with a pearl centre.  I tucked the end of my sentiment strip under the flower and added a swirl die cut from the Bella Rose die set.  I finished the flower by adding glue to the tips and drizzling more Iced Snow on them.  Finished dimensions are 7 x 8 1/2" in size.  I hope you will give my new technique a go to see just how pretty it is in person!  Trust me the photos don't do it justice!

  Now for the winner of the card giveaway from Saturday.  Thank you for all your lovely comments, I just wish I had about 200 or so of the cards to giveaway so everyone could have one!  However, the name that was drawn was:

 Norah Mc Phree!!!

 Congratulations!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your card!

   One more thing before I sign off today.  I had a lovely email from Nigel May thanking me for spreading the word about his new book that is available as a download now.  It seems that it we have helped him climb the book download chart from about 10,000th place to 1,000th place.  I told him that I thought we could do a bit better than that, don't you think!  Please tell your friends, family and coworkers about it and let's propel him skyrocketing up those charts!  If you haven't downloaded it yet, here is the link  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trinity-ebook/dp/B00CNW8Z00/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372085745&sr=8-1&keywords=trinity+nigel+may 
All for now, Sue x

I loved your demo on this card Sue, I am not a stamper but fell in love with the Secret Garden stamp. It is so beautiful, although it could have something to do with your amazing techniques which show the stamp off to its full advantage. Thank you for sharing your great ideas Sue.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
I love this technique, was really impressed when I saw the demo yesterday. I think it is particularly impressive on the black card - very striking. Enjoyed the show it's a shame you're not on until September now. Thank you for the lovely comments you said about my card ( the wedding one I think it was actually the first one shown yesterday) it really made my day.

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, omg omg omg omg you're blinking AMAZING!!!!!!!!. Can you tell I LOVE this technique and the card. I have bought everything to recreate this card ( hope you don't mind). Loved your show and so pleased you managed to show the double resist technique as well.

Sorry to have missed the show yesterday, got so excited watching the cricket, yes I did say cricket, that I forgot all about your show. Only hope they will be repeated. Love this card, now that my builders have departed and I can once more craft, must have a go at making something similar.

Celina Dee said...

Stunning technique Sue!!
I thought you and Dean were fantastic on Tool Shed. As usual I got all the Sets(except Asters. I already have them).
I thought about sharing my story about buying my first dies and machine but held back because you know it already. It's a hard story to tell sometimes.
But thank you Sue and say thank you to Dean too from me as he was also a contributing factor in the beginning of my crafty arty journey.
Love the card as always.
See you here again tomorrow
Hugs
Celina :) :)

Anonymous said...

Great show yesterday, Sue, brilliant samples as usual. Will now def try double embossing after my initial doubts on ability to do it. Also fire and ice. Have at long last bought gilding flakes but missed out on 'ice' and also Secret Garden stamp - they never seem to have enough stock on the single items.
Just love today's card - gorgeous!

'P' in Wales

Lace said...

This technique is the best!I watched your demos yesterday, sorry they didn't leave you time to do the third, that Dean is a motormouth sometimes.

I succumbed to the bracket dies (from Amazon, free shipping so I saved £7.99 as C&C didn't reduce our costs because Andy won) and I got the stamps on ebay for £14.99! That way I saved about £13 over C&C including the shipping. It's nice to have C&C for the demos, but I can often beat their prices by shopping around.
Congrats to the winner of the card, I'm sure she will love it the way I love mine.

Lacelady said...

That last one was from me, hit the wrong key again.

Morning Sue
Saw you demo this and thought it was amazing. Will be giving it ago today as soon as the ice element is delivered.
Will be trying the double emboss too.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW what a totally fab card for today !! I saw you demo this technique yesterday. I bought two packs of your new coloured card as my step daughter will also use it too !! I had already got some gilding flakes and glue but not tried any thing yet. Now I have ordered the secret garden stamp I cant wait to try it !! I bought diamond sparkles three glitters set from hunky dory some time ago and I am hoping I can use that instead of the ice snow glitter. I watched all your shows yesterday. Your sample cards and demos were fantastic !! I was a bit disappointed as there should have been more time for your demos and sample cards and less chatting from Dean. For two hours worth I was hoping for three main demos instead of two. I just don't know how I will cope without you on our screens until September. Thank goodness for your blog !! Lots of love Tres x x x

Hi Sue

Today's card is stunning. Your demo's were absolutely fab, I learned so many techniques in just two hours...Thankyou.
I love the double embossing effect and will be using that idea. I was lucky enough to purchase quite a bit on Sunday, but lost out on the iced snow. I have tried other outlets but they are out of stock too. ( I think we can put that down to a Sue Wilson sell out )If anyone knows where I can purchase some I would be grateful for the info. :-)

Kind regards

Hi Sue, I did think I had already left a comment, but when reading others haven't seen mine, must have pressed the wrong button!! I want to also thank you for all the new techniques you showed yesterday, they were amazing and much appreciated. I would also agree with an earlier comment, Dean did go on a bit I thought, we are watching to see you demonstrate and not to listen to dribble from the
presenters. Without your talent C&C would sell a lot less products.

Hi Sue,
What a gorgeous card - I must try that one. LOVE the flakes in ANY colour combination. The aster is beautiful and PERFECT for sending in the mail. Just lovely, the whole card!

Hi Sue,
congratulations on yesterday's show. Loved this card and the 'fire & ice' technique along with the aster dies and stamps - they really do make such lovely flowers. Such a shame there were only two demos though.
Take care.

Hi Sue, totally love this card. The technique is amazing!! However, it will involve a bit of a personal shopping list for me to be able to replicate as I don't have all of the necessary stuff....YET!! Love Sam xxx

Hi Sue, YOU were amazing on C&C yesterday....shame the same can't be said for Dean!!! How annoying is he??? Perhaps it's all part of the job!! Love Sam xxx

beautiful card, loved the show I managed to see yesterday x

Suebak said...

I watched the 'Fire and Ice' technique yesterday as you took us through it on C&C, at the same time as I was looking at yesterday's blog. I reiterate, the technique results in a simply stunning effect. It reminds me very much of the technique that requires a piece of lace, double sided sticky sheet and two different glitter colours.

Evening Sue, really enjoyed yesterdays show and just loved all the samples. What can I say about todays card other than "love it". Can't wait to try this technique and really need that background stamp. Just looked at the reviews for Nigels book and just purchased it. Looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the low down. Kind regards Joanne K x

Hi Sue, so great to have you back on C&C yesterday. Loved the show, the demos (fire and ice fantastic!). Unfortunately I missed out on the jewels so can't try it myself just yet but ordered loads to do plenty of others things with. As usual Sue you really are inspirational and you make everything look so easy. Thanks Sue!
Hugs Hayley x

Hi Sue
Loved this technique you showed us yesterday the name fits so well. It's an Absolutely stunning card and those aster Dies has to be one of my Fav flower dies. I have used it so many times. I have given the link to the book to my friends . I am a Stephen King fan and not really into those types of Books.
Take care

A truly stunning card, I have never tried gilding flakes but this card makes me want to try it. So that's the flakes and the jewels added to my wish list.

I absolutely adore this card and the technique is one I most definitely will try. Hopefully with similar results - I don't have the glitter/jewels though but have it on my (ever increasing) wish list.
Thanks
