High Low Stained Glass

Hello crafters!  Today's card utilises a great technique that I call "the High-Low Technique"  If you haven't tried this technique, now is the time as you can follow along with me to give it a try.  Don't forget to click on the subscriber button and you will be emailed when new videos are added to our channel!
I landed safely yesterday and really enjoyed reading all the comments when we finally got in,
 thank you so much!  It's a double card day today for you so don't forget to scroll down to see card number two (after you watch the video of course!) LOL

Buy from Joanna Sheen

Finished dimensions are 7" x 7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

 This second card today uses the Lavish Corners Background stamp by Justrite.  I stamped it on to coconut white card using the flake and glitter glue.  Once I cleaned the glue off of the stamp, I gilded the background using the Verdigris Gilding Flakes.  I used the Vintage Labels Six die and cut an aperture in the centre.  I added mounting foam to the back for dimension.  I cut one of the tags from the Bracket and Label tag set in black and added just the end of it to the inside of the aperture, just adding a bit of detail above my sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment (from What Defines Us) in black and mounted the background over it.  I used two of the Decorative Labels Eight cut in white to add a decorative edge around the background.  I added a black mat to give it some contrast before adding my white pierced edge layer.  I finished the card with a soft gold, black and then a final white mat.  Finished dimensions are
 6 3/4" x 7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue, you have left us with 2 beautiful cards for today. I am glad your journey was uneventful and you are now safely back with your Mom. Have a great time together, think of your Brit family a little but enjoy yourself, we will be here when you get back.

Welcome to all new bloggers, thank you for showing your support of Sue. Love and hugs to all Wilsonettes, especially Yorkielass (please let us know you are okay)xx

Cameeli of Richmond said...

Hi Sue
Great cards to cheer up the misery of the grey start to the day here.
I particularly like the verdigris flakes

Glad you landed safely.
Thanks again for sharing and I hope you can get a well earned break and enjoy time with your mum.

Pam, you are such a sweetheart and so glad you are here every day!!

Tres,Norah really glad to see you both back we have missed you!!

The Wedding fast approaches and I did find a pair of gorgeous Ivory silk lace shoes with matching handbag, but the shoes cripple me!! Back to the drawing board and John Lewis later this week.

My parents arrive on 30th April and the wedding is on 03rd May. L thanks you for asking!! As you can imagine it is full steam ahead with preparations etc.
I finished die cutting all the 600 butterflies yesterday and now I have to emboss and assemble them.

Enjoy the day!!
Cameeli xx

Loved this card when it was on the show, Sue, and even more now! Thanks for video - such clear instructions for the high-low technique and will definitely be having a crack at this.
Anything with TT folder, gilding flakes and microbeads always a winner with me - and FQB's too. Do like the Calabria die but don't have it - yet. So much to need!
Do like the second card too.
Pleased you are back safely with Mom. Going to the breakfast club??

'P' in Wales

Hi to Tres! Come on, yorkielass, you're the missing link.

Eemeli said...

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. Very pleased that you made it back to the USA without any problems; wishing you a wonderful holiday with your mum.
Not sure about the first card, maybe it's the colours? But I always try to look at the design and imagine it in other colours before I decide - will watch the video after work. Love the second card though.
Glad that you're back on the blog Norah and Tres.
Have a great day all.
Sue. xxx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you for today's visit into the craft room. Two very very beautiful gifts today and for me the video gift just has the edge where on the second one it's the sentiment that takes the prize (I collect all the sentiments and keep them for the centre of my gifts).
I still haven't made the aquaintance of gilding flakes - I've used glitter on sticky tape but really must get down to purchasing some of the beautiful new flakes.
So pleased to see you've landed safely so now have some real R&R.
By the way I really love the new music at the end of this season's video - would love to know what it's called.
Take care and see you tomorrow.
Janet x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Two gorgeous cards today, I found that the video went 'fuzzy' part way through (although I could still see what was happening) and then it went perfect again towards the end. I adore the high/low technique, it is so pretty.
I'm so glad your journey went well and that you are back with your Mom now, have a lovely time.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Pearl said...

Good Morning Sue, great card today and I love the stained glass effect.

Nina Spear said...

Morning Sue, lovely to hear you had a good journey.
Stunning card today, I would never have thought of using gilding flakes and microbeads together but it works brilliantly. The second card is stunning too!

Maggie Phillips said...

Hi Sue,
Pleased to hear you have arrived safely, in the USA. Enjoy.

You have given us two lovely cards again today. I love the plum card and those new gilding flakes are to die for. X

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. So glad that you have arrived safely : ) Thank you for the two-fer. I have watched the video (mine ran fine all the way through Patricia, sorry yours didn't) and as always the High-Low Technique is beautiful, with gorgeous mulled wine gilding flakes I love the plum background card too. Great second card also. Love the stamp and dies used, and the piece of Bracket and Label tag above the sentiment is so effective, I love it. Hope you can relax for a while Sue. Please give my love to your Mom.
X for Pam, great to see Norah and Tres back : ) Cameeli, you are going to be dreaming about butterflies by the time you are finished, bless you! Take care.

jean.phillips1 said...

Morning Sue, pleased to hear you have arrived safe and well, enjoy your time with your Mom. Love both of today's cards. Have watched the video so think I will try the high/low technique later today. It is wet and miserable here so enjoy the sunshine in Florida! Love Jean xxx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
So glad you've landed safely and hopefully will have a bit of a rest now that you're with your mom.
The first of the cards is my favourite of the two, it is just BEAUTIFUL and STRIKING and showcase the gilding to maximum effect.
I like the second one, too (clever idea, using 2 of the dies as a border/mat) but it is a bit busy for me. But I'm certain that it will appeal to a great many people, I certainly wouldn't say no to it.
Hugs, Rose

Rachel Taylor said...

Hugs from sunny Ireland.... so far anyway. Evelyn x

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes

Had a very busy day yesterday with family over for lunch, so a good excuse not to do very much today except to watch the video, love these two very elegant rich looking cards.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. Hope you managed a good amount of sleep on the journey like you said just before bording yesterday, and so glad you have arrived safe and sound. Be happy.
Im amazed to see that these guilding flakes are putty in your hands, even the sticky tape seems to understand its roll (oops, no pun intended there) its just I even get in a mess with sticky tape let alone pesky guilding flakes ! I can see it now, me trying to peel off the design covered wuth self adhesive, boy oh boy, comedy of errors, but saying that, I may, just may try it with another die, ohhh dear, will I really ?!
Then you give us a second beauty, yet again guilded, Sue, what are you trying to do with me lol. Both cards are amazing, nothing more nothing less, amazing, thank you.

So lovely to see new names adding to the family, welcome. And so glad to see Tres back along with Nutty Norah, now then, where's our White Rose ? Come home Yorkilass please.

Cam - HOW MANY ? Wowzer ! Maybe you and Tina need to get together, what with bunting for Tina and your butterflies, makes me grateful our daughters wedding is a quiet affair !

Love to all popping in today, find some 'rest time' if you can Sue.

My, it's 10am and 93 comments already! Beautiful cards Sue, as usual and I'll watch the video in a jiffy. So glad your trip was uneventful, I know you do it regularly, but it must take it out of you just with the time differences. Take care and don't overdo it for a day or two, us UKers will still be here when you come back.

Maryann Laursen said...

WAUW I rally don´t get it, how you can keep comming up with all these gorgeous ideas every day , and they´re all so gorgeous. Thanks so much for all the hard work on the videos too, they´re really helpful always.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !! a video today. I love video days and today's one is explained so clearly and simply. Thank you for that Sue. ( My brain needs simple instructions !!) Your card as always is just stunning !! I love your high / low technique with the mulled wine gilding flakes and the micro beads. I really must give this technique a try. The Calabria die set is on my wish list. I love the rich plum coloured card you have used to. These gilding flakes go so lovely with the plum card. Your bow and flower finish the card beautifully to. This card is so pretty Sue !!
I like the second card to but I have never been that keen on the Justrite labels six shape. The Verdigris gilding flakes look great. I love the sentiment to.
I am glad you reached Florida safely. You need some well deserved relaxation time with your Mum and family. Have a lovely time Sue. X x x
Lots of love to everyone love Tres x x x

Angela Allen said...

Sandra said...

Good Morning Sue, two beautiful works of art today, which have inspired me to get in the craft room, feeling a little down today, it's just because my nest is very empty , after the hustle and bustle of the Easter holidays it all seems way too quiet!
Welcome to all new blog followers,you have stopped by the perfect place for inspiration, there is nowhere that inspires you as much as Sue, her cards are simply amazing!
Cameeli you should have asked I would have gladly helped you die cut butterflies, always here if you need help, remember to relax a little before the wedding or you will exhaust yourself xx
Sue, I am so glad you landed safely, I am sure you are more relaxed already, there is nothing like a 'mummy hug' to de-stress you! Enjoy your time together x
Hugs to all

Hi Sue, two lovely cards, I will be trying the high low technique in the next few days. Have a good time with your mum. Lin K

Lisbeth said...

Love the High Low Stained Glass card. It has inspired me to have a go at it myself - I wonder what it would look like using black card?
Regrettably I dithered over whether to get the classic rose or the faux quilled blooms dies and missed out. It looks as though the whole world has sold out of them now. A good think for you but not so good for me. I will have to wait until the shops are back in stock!

Stunning cards Sue love them both xx hazel

I love how you do different techniques and put them in your videos so we can watch. It helps my grey matter better and sinks in more, plus I can always go back to them! I certainly have a lot of "pinning" to do......! I love the second card and it's beautiful sentiment....so true x
Cameeli, good grief girl, I'm breathless for you doing 600 butterflies! Well done you! Sorry about your shoes. You know what they say, don't be disappointed because there is always something out there waiting just for you.
Norah and Tres it's lovely to see you both back. Norah, I will be back to have a read later. How is the weather today on them there Ochillie hills? (I bet I've spelt it wrong!). Luckily I sent a pigeon this morning with lots of love and hugs to all the Wilsonettes. All I can say is at least the pigeon will know where you all are cuz I couldn't find my out of a cul-de-sac.......It would be lovely to see you back too Yorkielass xx It's an honour to be a part of such warm and caring blog xxx Take care everyone xx Love Karen xx

Love the plum colour with the gilding flakes.


Bridge x said...

Beautiful cards Sue - I think you must craft in your sleep as I don't know how you find time to make all your lovely creations. I'm enjoying following your blog and trying to learn the techniques. I'm the lady from Northampton who didn't know you or your work before I met you at Cooemans in Northampton and now I know what I've been missing all this time, I have so much to catch up on and learn. Glad you had a safe journey home
Best wishes

Hi Sue, wow, two more gorgeous cards! I spent a happy hour or two on Saturday trying out the striplet design - it was the first crafting I've done since Christmas, as I was busy looking after my Mum (she sadly passed away on March 4)I had been her live in carer for 4 months, so little time for crafting and little computer time! But I'm back now, and enjoying your blog and your lovely new dies so much. Hope you have a good trip, and safe return. Love, Judy M

Afternoon Sue and all the Wilsonettes old and new, two great cards for us today, am just off out so will catch up on the video when I get in tonight. Your poor mum Sue, will she recognise you and your new super slim look, give her a hug from us all but tell her we need her very talented daughter back well rested. Great to see most of the oldies back, and Cameeli, you will find those shoes of that I'm sure, there is nothing worse though than panicking that you will not get them, the big day fast approaches and you have done so well with everythingm including those 600 butterflies, you keep going girl xxxxx

Both cards are stunning. I like both equally.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, two stunning cards today and a great video, thank you. The techniques on the first one are clever but I think I prefer the second card (but only just).
So glad that you arrived stateside safely and can now enjoy some mother/daughter time.
Judy M. so sorry for your loss, I've been there etc. and I know that crafting will help you cope.
After a couple of gloriously sunny days Norah's hills are shrouded in rain & low cloud today so maybe she is having trouble finding her way out:-)

CraftyJo said...

Both beautiful cards Sue, I shall enjoy the video when I find some time!

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
So pleased you arrived safe and sound hope Mum and everyone is well.

I love the video, the high low technique is so effective, and the card is gorgeous, also love the second card but have to say the first is my favourite.

Take care, love Brenda xxx

Cameeli, WOW ..... 600 butterflies they are going to look amazing!

Hi Sue,
Hi to our ever expanding family of Wilsonettes!
So pleased you arrived safely Sue - very pleased also that our posts yesterday brought you some joy! You deserve it.
Will watch video later when I have some peace and quiet!
Love the first card - maybe because I have the die! They
Are both beautiful. Will have a go later but may have to change the colours slightly as don't have those particular gilding flakes.
Judy M , so sorry to hear about your Mum - you've been under a lot of stress in the last few months. Lovely to see you back .x
Cameeli - butterflies - wow! I'm nearly speechless ! They will look stunning. All the best with the shoes!
Yorkielass - please come back to us!
Lovely to have Norah and Tres back!
Love to all, Myra

Barbara said...

Two beautiful cards! I love the look of the gilding flakes but haven't had a lot of practice with them yet. I have an 80th birthday card to make so think I will give it a go.
Hope you have a lovely holiday with your Mum and a relaxing break.

yvonne masterman said...

Good afternoon Sue two more beautiful cards, Im like Barbara I haven't used gilding flakes tho I do have some that I bought a couple of years ago and never used. think I might give them a try, but knowing me I will breath over them and spread it all over lol. Yvonne xxx

Emily said...

Lovely cards, Sue. Really enjoy your videos. Now that I have the gilding flakes, micro-beads, and your Spanish-collection will give it a try. Thank you for all of the help you give us.

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
OOOOhoooo a pretty cards today Sue and have finally seen a hi low card that i really like, but that could be all to do with the colours you have chosen to do today's beauty in. The 2nd card is beautiful as well so it would be a very difficult choice today. I hope you have had a lovely morning catching up with mum and the breakfast club and please have a few days rest before going at it full pelt again. I know your mum will be very proud of the beautiful woman she raised, who has 24carat gold running through her.
Cameeli flower, you should have farmed out the butterfly mission to the Wilsonettes as many hands make light work, so they say although i hope they don't flutter away on you when you're not looking. I hope you find a pair of comfy shoes as crippled feet you do not need at your son's wedding. Get a pair of slippers/mules that you can change out and into easily between photographs, Flyflots are a perfect solution. They have a beautiful selection and it is like walking on air as they have all these atomic things in them. I am a connoisseur of Flyflots with a grand total of 36 different kinds in my shoe arsenal. Afraid that high heels are only an option if in my scooter as any other time i would be making friends with the ground an awful lot(we're on quite good speaking terms at times but i really wish that it wouldn't take out it's bad temper on the knees of my trousers or worse, bare knees, OOOOOooooooo sore).
Late today because my motorcar had to go in for its MOT and service, so just took the knitting to do while waiting. Oh how glad am i that it is portable because not being able to get far on the old pins, i would be bored senseless. Passed with flying colours i'm pleased to say as i wasn't looking forward to a big bill. What happened to the beautiful weather we were having as it's been miserable here so far although it's brighter now, i hope it continues.
Barbara, i am across at the Glenochil Prison(they let me out on good behaviour)Clackmannanshire about 7 miles from Stirling. If i go a mile down the road i can see from the top of the Tullibody bypass, Wallace's Monument and Stirling Castle in the distance. I used to love going for walks down to Menstrie and Blairlogie, but the legs have went on permanent strike now and won't do what i tell them to do. I can see the Ochils that i used to love to climb out of my window. Anne up in Gairloch, i used to go around the length and breadth of the main isle of the UK with my dad and mum in a motorhome that my dad built. I have been up your part of the world a few times over the years and never get tired seeing it. Because mum and dad didn't have much converting an old van into a carvanette was the best solution and meant we could go on holiday. My dad though would normally go into the towns at night when all the shops were closed and do detours to escape them during opening hours. My bed was across the front seats, Jim was in the hammock that my mum made under the concertina roof, while mum and dad were the two benches with the table to make a bed....happiness.
Hope that you are all having a lovely day and remember it doesn't need the sun to make it lovely, just a smile or hello can make it perfect.
Hope to see you all tomorrow,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

I Truly Love today's "Fantastic Video" as always you Explain things so clearly, so if others wish to try it out you do the breakdown step by step.
I'm loving those Awesome Mulled Wine Gilding Flakes, they are so Rich in Colour just so Stunning, I loved how you went around the edge of your Card with sticky tape then placed Gilding Flakes on! this is such a Stunning Fabulous Look.
I have this Fabulous Calabria Die and it's so Beautiful it cuts like a dream as do ALL YOUR DIES I also have The Embossing Folder so I definitely must give this a go, the only thing I don't have is The Faux Flower but I will purchase at some stage.
Then The Second Just as Stunning and Beautiful Lavish Corners Card from JustRite really love The Verdigris Gilding Flakes, I'm a huge lover of JustRite Stamps they Stamp so Clear, and they also do great Sentiments as do Creative Expression I'm loving there new Bold set. Thank You so much Sue for sharing I really appreciate every thing you do.

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue,

So please you arrived safely, and are back with your family for a while,enjoy every moment. Your cards today are beautiful. I love the high low technique, will have to have a go at this, and another beautifully shot video. I could do with someone following me around all day with that lighting, it's fab

Pam I have'nt said it lately even though I have thought of you, sending love and hugs.

Norah & Tres, really pleased you are both back where you belong. We just need to get Yorkielass back, if you are looking in but not commenting, please come back. You have always been very kind with lovely thoughts, and my goodness we all need them from time to time. Please think about it.

People have bee asking about dad, I have'nt mentioned it as the day after Claire's wedding, we had a call to say he was going down hill fast. When we got to the hospital he was on monitors and was having a blood transfusion. We were sent home later as he became more stable. He's not eating anymore and sleeps a lot, they wake him to give fluids. He in on antibiotics for a chest infection and a urinary infection. That's all I can tell you. Thank you for thinking of him.

Kind regards :-)

Bejay Roles said...

Wow! Great cards as always, Sue. I tried your other version of stained glass (with glue and glitter) the other day and was amazed that I actually got something pretty at the end of it, so now I feel a bit more relaxed about trying the gilding flakes and micron bead version. I've only got one small medallion die to practise on and need to save up to get a bigger one...wouldn't it be great if there was a die lending library in the UK like our book libraries. That would help so many people. :)
Happy crafting, Bejay xx

Theresa said...

Hi Sue

Hi Sue
Two fantastic cards and a video you really are spoiling us! Both cards are simply wonderful the colours are so very rich and opulent, pleased we don't have to choose. The video was brilliant so many tips especially with the flakes, really like the latest ones mulled wine. Do you think if Steph had a glass of mulled wine before using the flakes it would help her? Lol, sorry Steph but you do seem to have such problems with your flakes.
Pleased to know you have arrived safe and sound Sue have a wonderful time with your Mom, family and friends.
Warm wishes and hugs to those who need them.

Fur babies out for a walk with hubby giving me much needed reading time!!!!. I have managed to read the same page ALL DAY- no its not that I'm slow at reading but because a certain tri-colour bundle of mischief (tilly) decided that mum really needed her attention all day so every time I tried to grab a few minutes to read the little monkey jumped onto my lap and sat on the book!!. Cully has spent the day trying to catch any bird that landed in the garden. The pesky poochies will probably behave all evening now for hubby cuz their his "little angels" . Aaarrrrggghhhhhh lol me x x x
