Gilded and Embossed



Hi bloggers!  Did you know that you can gild your backgrounds and then emboss them for a really textural effect?  You can see how it is done in today's video segment.

To My Very Dear Friend Sue,
"Magnificent Card" And A Truly Tremendous Video With Great Tips And Techniques.
I Love Using Gilding Flakes, Fabulous Colours Also.
I Loved How You Placed A Sticky Sheet To Acetate Then Embossed It, It Looked Amazing I Was Thinking When Going Through The Folder So Not To Stick To The Folder, Instead Of Using Copy Paper Would It Be Better To Use The Silky Side Of Your Sticky Sheet So It Doesn't Stick Or Is This Something You Did.
Well My Wonderful Friend Only Three More Days Then I Fly On Holiday So After Sunday I Won't Be Able To Comment For Quite Some Time.
Take Great Care My Dear Friend And Thank You For Sharing The Fabulous Card And Video.
Love And Hugs
From Sam xxx
Hugs To All The Wilsonettes Take Care All x

Good Morning Sue & all Wilsonettes. Some of you may have noticed that I haven't left a comment over the last few days, I hope you didn't think that just because my name was drawn for a comment I had decided not to come back...that's not me folks, glad to say...Sue is very generous to us all in heart & soul so she deserves all the recognition & gratitude we can show her. I'm not in good health & I have suffered over the last few days...even had to drag myself to my part-time job working with children which absolutely knocked me for six, I had to go,firstly because they are one staff down & secondly how am I going to have the wages to collect Sues gorgeous dies... Anyways Sue if ever we are looking for something different in a card you are always certain to oblige although gilding is not really my thing (I'm sure it's very therapeutic)you make it look so easy on the video with stunning results...I'm sure many, many wilsonettes will be sure to enjoy making this card with your amazing idea of embossing & gilding technique & will achieve just as great a result...well off to do hubby's lunch for work...will comment on Sues previous creations a bit later. Take care to all...Love Beth B x x x PS if Inky Fingers do not have the dies you are looking for then please try CRAFT World in Glasgow (sorry don't know how to add a link for you)they have quite a lot of Sues cutting dies etc, they are lovely, helpful people with excellent service with very good delivery times...x x

CraftySuetoo said...

Julie Elli said...

Hi Sue and you lovely ladies. Got to try this.
I wonder if it would look good if you highlighted the embossing with some Pebeo gilding wax in silver? Oooohh can't wait to play.
Thanks Sue for your inspiration. Big hug

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes,

I love this technique, I tried it last week and it worked really well-it creates a bit of a mess but it is well worth the effort!
I love your colour combination, it is so rich and sumptuous and I will really enjoy watching the demo later-Tuesday and Thursday are by far my fave days.
I have a lot on today, workmen arriving and food shopping for my little kitty's so hopefully I will squeeze in some me time and Cardmaking later.

Crafty hugs,

Your card today Sue is gorgeous, I have never ever used the gilding technique, but sure I am going to give it a go. Somewhere in my craft stash I have a jar unopened.

The sun has gone, we have heavy rain, but it sure does help me knuckle down to get some crafting done. I love the sunshine, love to be in my garden, sometimes, I craft on the patio table. Bit wet though today.

Happy crafting hugs to all.

Deb Curtis said...

Hi Sue & all, not sure about this card. I love the dies and your heat embossing Sue is flawless, the guilding is gorgeous but not sure about the acetate. Sorry, I don't think it's something I'd use myself, I think it might be the plastic-ness. Now I feel awful, sorry, is it just me?
Hope everyone has a pleasant eavening, blessings - Deb C xx

nzillingworth said...

HI SUE
FAB WOW CARD. YOU HAVE LET THE GENIE OUT OF THE BOTTLE AGAIN. I BOUGHT 3 JARS OF FLAKES AND HID THEM HOPING I WOULD FORGET ABOUT THEM. NOW GOT THEM OUT AGAIN. BE ON EVERY CARD FOR WEEK OR SO. LOL.
THINK THE ADHESIVE SHEETS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER BOUGHT. NICE TO DIE CUT IT AND PUT FLAKES ON. LOOKS GREAT ON YOUR FINISHING TOUCHES DIES. I HAVENT BOUGHT ANY OF THESE BORDERS YET BUT CAN SEE HOW USEFUL THEY COULD BE.
LOVE THE VIDEO. GRAND CARD.
