Glittered High Low Technique

Good morning crafters!  This is one of my favourite techniques to do with dies!  It does take a bit of time, but well worth it I think!  Once you see it done with glitter, it is so easy to do this technique with other mediums like gilding flakes and mica powders too!  There is also another technique to use with the Delicate Daisies die to give them a completely different look.  I do apologise but I cannot seem to find any other pictures of this card though.  I hope you will enjoy the video.
All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Beautiful. I love this technique, the colour is gorgeous too, such a great contrast against the Iced Snow. The daisies become much more like chrysanths the more you layer them don't they, so pretty.
Sending my daily hugs to everyone on this special Remembrance Day.
Take care.

Morning Sue,
What A Truly Amazing "Card And Video" You've Brought Us Today.
The Video As Always Was Superb, I Love The Way You Explain Each And Every Step Taking Us Through The Techniques And Sharing Your Tips With Us.
I Love The Beautiful Colour You Have Chosen Today The Colour Of The Glitter Is Just So Beautiful, I Loved How You Wanted To Mat/Layer So To Match You Glittered Around The Edge, It Looked So Stunning I'm Going To Give This A Go Today, I Must Say I Never Was A Lover Of Glitter Until I Purchased Yours It's So Fine And Fabulous Colours.
I Love The Austrian Background
AllYour Dies Are Very Beautiful So Well Thought Out, You've Thought Of How Many Different Techniques Can Come From Each And Everyone Given Us Value For Money. I Love When You First Introduced Myself To Sticky Sheets As I'd Not Used That Product Previously, And Today After Using The Stunning Glitter You Then Used One Of My Favourite Product's The Iced Snow I Love The Flower The Delicate Daises Dies Are a Fabulous Part Of The Collection And I Loved How You Created Today's Flower Then Adding A Stunning Bow Awesome Stick Pins.
Today's Card Is Truly Splendid, Fabulous I Just Love It
(What would I do if they took the word "Love" from my vocabulary Lol)
Sue Thanks For The Tremendous Informative Video I've Watched It Once Now I'll Watch It Once More, Thank You For Sharing And All Your Very Hard Work, Thank You For All The Tips And Techniques, Thank You For Inspiring Me Every Single Day.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What beautiful colours and a wonderful technique to show them off. I have yet not tried this technique but I can assure you that I shall be having a go in the very near future. So be prepared to hear my groans of woe when pieces do not stay where I want them! Your finished work of art today is just beautiful and who wouldn't want this to be delivered to them on their special day. I for one would love to receive it.

Today I shall be remembering all the courageous men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can be FREE today. Like so many families we lost loved ones in the 1914-1918 Great War. Had relatives who suffered all their lives through injuries in 1939-1945 WW2 and have suffered the worries and anxieties of having a member of our young generation fighting in Afganistan.
My prayers are that one day everyone will be at PEACE with each other.

See you tomorrow.
Janet x

'P' in Wales

A day for reflection and especially remembering my lovely Dad who served all the way through WW11 in the RN - including being torpedoed
whilst on the Eagle - so many of his mates did not survive.

Hi Sue and everyone such a beautiful card and using the daisies gives me ideas as just purchased them. Going to watch the video, its always a pleasure. Thank you x

Lacelady said...

I love it. I was lucky enough to win one of your cards when you demo-ed on C&C. I have it displayed on a shelf, (on it's own brass stand) and as I move across the room, it seems to glow and shine at me. Super technique!

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, I love this technique. It looks so sophisticated. The colours are brilliant too, although I can see it in other colours.

I will have my 2minutes silence today, for those brave men and women who fought and those who did not come back. My Father being one of them.

Love Rosemarie xx

Diane said...

Hi Sue wow this is a stunner, I love the colour of the glitter you have used and you managed to keep it fairly contained too . I usually end up with glitter on my fingers face, the floor everywhere!!! I haven't been brave enough to try this technique in full yet, I think i need some creative expression adhesive sheets as mine seem to thick to cut with one pass. It's lovely to see the Austrian set get it's day, I hadn't realised how pretty it is. Hope you have a great day with your mum. Love Diane G xxx

Morning Sue and everyone,
Stunning card and a beautiful technique....love the colour too. Many thanks for so much inspiration.
I have an apology to make to Sue and all the Wilsonettes....I read the CE blog too quick yesterday and I thought it said that Sue was showing he new set of videos and what it actuall said was that Sue would be showing a 'new video'....which of course she does every Tuesday and Thursday!! What a numpty I am....sorry if I got everyone as excited as I was!
Hugs to all those in need of them and I hope your days will soon get better.
Sorry again for the mistake.

Hi Sue, thank you so much for the vidio's you make for us. The details help so much to understand how to get the results we aim for.
This card is so pretty, I love the glitter and have decided to just use CE silk glitter as they are just easy to work with. I will try this card later today.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes friends,
WOW Sue, how pretty is today's card that i am determined to have a go at this today. The polished silk glitter really does sparkle and shine. I think the flowers have that chrysanthemum look about them as well, but how versatile is these dies as they can make a few different type of flowers. Thank you Sue for another stunning card.
Tres flower, it is lovely to see you back again. I am sorry that you are having a time of it because of your illness, but i hope that you are feeling a bit better now as i know just how low it can take you to the point that even the littlest thing can be the biggest struggle.(hugs)
Welcome home Maggie(better without a bow). What a cheek your ipad has, who does it think it is acting all high and mighty at who you can and cannot keep in touch with. I would threaten it with a cheaper rival and see if it starts behaving itself more.;) I hope that you had a wonderful time with your daughter down under.
Karen(knight) i hope that you are behaving yourself since coming out of hospital and not trying to do any marathon sessions of anything as we wouldn't want that nice surgeon shouting because his hard work has been destroyed by over doing it. Please take care.
Alison( Alimecca), how is your Auntie getting on? I hope that she is in as good a place and state of mind that she can be.Sending hugs to her.
Theresa (TOB), nice to see you back again and i hope that you are on the long road back up again.(Hugs)
Tandy, glad to see that you have come back even if is hard at the moment for you. I know you have had another rough year and can only hope that it gets better for you.(Hugs)
So tired today as Rory was out until 11:00 last night with the school away through to Livingstone to the theatre. Have the hospital with Kirsten this afternoon so i am going to go and have another sleep as the eyes are shutting big style on me today. I think it is just going to be one of those days today. Take care everyone and i will hopefully see you tomorrow. Hugs to all my Angels both in blog and not at the moment. My thoughts and prayers are with you all,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes. Ohhhhh WOW, what a beauty, so much sparkle, WOW. I want and need that background die, Id love to replicate this for a Pearl anniversary card that was ordered last night - BUT - (and even though your tutorial is SO easy to follow, thank you) im wondering how much damage I will cause ! With my 'sticky up finger' waving in the wind, specs that have got to big for my drawn face so keep sliding down my face, and totally accident prone at the moment ( who else has got their hairbrush tangled in their necklace just by bending down whilst holding said brush) and had to be untangled by Mr L, Im thinking pockey tool terror lol ! Would I end up gouging hugh pieces of sticky sheet off instead of gently peeling back ? Maybe who knows ! Or worse, will my specs fall off onto the sticky sheet Ive just pulled back ? More than likely lol... Oh what a vision of comedy errors I could end up to be, but it would be so worth it if I could finish with this stunning piece of delight. So now do I go and adopt (secretly) the background die or the holly die ? I have the little holly leaf die, but I so love my petit vinary and use it so much, that I now need the holly for my C. Cards. Hmmm - holly or comedy crafting ?
So, I will send my love to our friends that feel awful today, and send a hug to all of you, if you are low, a gentle hug comes your way, to anyone having treatment etc be strong and to anyone celebrating, congratulations.
I too will remember the fallen later today, both past, and our young brave soldiers who have recently received their wings.
Have a wonderful day Sue whatever your plans.
Hope your little French kitchen is warm and cosy Janet.
Love you.
Lancashire Steph xx

Sandra said...

Good Morning Sue & Friends,
I have tried this technique with carrying shades of blue glitter and was surprised how gorgeous the results were, although a little messy! Fun though!
Steph I could see you trying this, you like a good messy play don't you! Haha if you are anything like me any play is messy, I spend more time tidying my craft room up than I do creating in it!
Tres, so sorry to hear you are poorly, sending you gentle hugs, please get well soon xx
TOB, Theresa special hugs to you too, nice to see your name and comment xxx
Margaret (corgi) I do hope the vet can treat your poor babies, it's such a worry when your little furry babies are poorly as they can't tell you like a child can! Sending hugs to you and Corgi's xxxx
Norah, enjoy your wee nap, sounds like you have had a busy 24hrs, I do hope that all goes well at hospital with Kirsten, is it a midwife appointment? Bet you are excited for the scan etc, when is the little one due ? I hope Rory enjoyed.his trip to the theatre, hugs to you my lovely friend on your very busy day xx
Lynda, hugs right back at you, I had a bit of a down day yesterday, Mondays can sometimes be like that for me, I so love having all my family around at the weekends, but Monday comes along and I find myself all alone again, I am not too keen on my own company, I tend to think too much, which turns to anxiety and then spirals down! But today I am rescued by my two Wilsonette sisters! It's our weekly jaunt, Sue is back with us too this week, we are meeting at 11.30 which is very wise as two minutes silence would be a struggle!
Janet, I cannot believe your time in your gorgeous French retreat is almost up, I swear it only seems like a couple of weeks ago that you were waiting for the doctor to give the all clear for Mr E to travel! Do you not go back for Christmas? If not I am booking in! Oh just imagine, French countryside log burner, gorgeous local produce and just Paul and I .....heaven! But on a serious note I'd miss the family... I think x
Make the most of your last few days, hugs to you both xx
Right I must go and organise myself for my day out, you wouldn't believe the amount of crafty goodies we shift around from house to house each week!
Crafty hugs to all of you lovely ladies today,
Like the rest of you, I will reflect and remember those that gave their lives for our freedom today, so many at such a young age, also the families that lost those loved ones as we did in our family, we will remember them xxxxx

Hi Sue,
Today's card looks beautiful but I am unable to watch the video here - still in Scotland and reception here not too good - however will have something to look forward to apart from washing and ironing when I get home.Lol
Didn't manage to comment yesterday but I truly loved that one.
Really good to see some friends commenting after being missing.
Maggie - hope you had a lovely time in Australia with your daughter. You missed a few cards without bows!
TOB - good to see you back - sorry you have been and probably still are struggling. Sending hugs,
Tres - so sorry you too have been having a difficult time with your illness . Sending hugs to you also.
Sandra, Pat and Mrs B - have a lovely day and try not to make too much mess! Completely understand why you had to meet up after the 2 min. silence was over!
Janet - Where has the time gone! Enjoy your last few days in Burgundy.
Must go as about to go out - weather a tad on the grey and murky side. Dreich is the ideal word for today I think!
Going to Balquidder today shame about lack of clear skies but scenery still stunning.
Sending love to all friends on the blog.
Pam- thanks so much for the birthday wishes that was so kind of you. Think of you each day and look to see if you are back. Just take care! Xx
Love to All,

Hello Sue, I love this technique and the results are just stunning. I particularly like the colours you have chosen today and those delicate chrysanthemums are gorgeous. This is a really beautiful card, thank you for sharing.
Take care love Brenda xxx

Sandra, Sue and Mrs B - I can imagine what it must be like when you visit each other's homes for your crafting day. When we look after our daughters children (school holidays etc) and we did yesterday because the youngest one was poorly. I always take a bag or crate (or both) of my goodies so that if they want to they can craft. Yesterday the younger one had a wonderful time stamping and creating cards, then the 15-year-old arrived home, she is doing GCSE Art, and it was - grandma can I use this piece of card or have you got???????? needless to say it is enjoyable.
Janet - I can't believe you be coming back home soon, where has the time gone?
Steph - sorry, but I couldn't help smiling when you were imagining yourself using the double sided sticky and the glitter, I had a lovely picture in my head of sticky on glasses and glitter everywhere. I'm sure you can do this, but thank you for the amusing moment.
Norah - hope all goes well with Kristen at the hospital this afternoon. Hope Rory enjoyed his theatre trip.

Hi Sue...I had a bit of a senior moment when watching the video. I was sitting here thinking, why do I need to tape the bits down if I'm taking the backing of the sticky sheet...DUH!!! Of course it's simple when you actually pay attention isn't it. There I was thinking you were sticking down the top side and not the back lol!!! Having sorted my brain out I could relaxe and watch you create yet another masterpiece...it's outstanding and I love the colour of the glitter you used, it reminded me of the ocean. As always, thanks for sharing with us. x

Hi Sue
Another stunner today. Must give this technique a go. I'm glad that you have done a video to break it into bite size pieces so to speak, will watch this later tonight. Have just dropped Sandra off home and will have to start dinner soon. We had a lovely chatter, put the world to rights and had a good laugh. Oh, and got a bit of crafting done as well. Multi tasking or what. I to shall remember the fallen today, and pray that we lose no more of our brave men in foreign countries. Hugs to all in need of one today. Steph I can just imagine you all stuck together with your glasses perched on the end of your nose. Take care.

I love the colour of card you used Sue. Such a pretty card.

I placed my Poppies at our War Memorial this morning in grateful remembrance of all who have died serving our country.
My Uncle died as a Japanese prisoner of war in July 1945.

Want a giggle Sue ? Just in time for 11's too : )

Not sure if you've had the time to read todays comments yet, but errm, thought Id try something similar but with diamond snow and iced snow just for a change of texture rather than colour as it was going to be for a pearl wedding anniversary and wanted tone on tone with pearl card ! Well I dont have the die used, so tried using the Cordoba ! By the way ladies it REALLY is easy to peel away the backing that Sue glittered in that amazing glitter, I got that far, but something didnt look quite right at one point - guess who forgot to actually STICK down the sticky sheet to the card ????!!!! Guess who spent forever trying to poke sticky backed paper from all those teeny weeny holes out of the frame of the Cordoba ? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh !
What was I saying earlier about doing stupid things ? There really IS no hope lol.

Now who on earth could have posted this comment ? Guess : )

Hi Sue,
A truly stunning card I will watch the video at the weekend when I will not be so tired not coping with being back at work after such a long time off. Norah congratulations on your wonderful news. Hope Rory had a good time. Love and hugs to all.

Helen Kington said...

Good evening Sue - I watched your video for this beautiful card this morning and tried it out this afternoon. Thank you it was relatively easy except I used a different background one with loads of small pieces to peel away.
I cried while watching the news report of all the different rememberance ceremonies it is all so poignant.
Hope everyone had a good day and the weather is better where you are. Take care all Helen K xx

Anne Crawford said...

Gorgeous Gorgeous Card! Superb Video ! I managed to watch the video this morning and then my iPad went wonky, Iain ( hubby ) has spent hours on his computer and has just managed to fix it, it has been playing up something terrible in the last few weeks, so hopefully it behaves now.
Too tired now for a long comment but I have enjoyed catching up .
Love and Hugs to all xo

Norah McPhee said...

Hi Girls,
sorry, I have just been through 4 days of hell and back with worry about Kirsten. Saturday she started to bleed and didn't stop for the next 11 hours. Doctor appointment yesterday got her the number for the early pregnancy unit who went through a few different things and told her to come in today. Went in this afternoon with her for this horrible wee nurse to tell her that she was over reacting and so was our gp, but she would get the sonographer to due an ultrasound. Well both her and wee mite are holding their own and just the fact that she is happy I am both relieved and getting used to this grandparent position becoming more of a reality. Thank you everyone for your wishes and concerns, I am so very lucky to know each and every one of you special people.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (glenochil village)
