Scribbled Glue Card

Hi crafters!  I love how the Scribbled glue technique mixed with some pixie powders really gives you a background that pops off the page, don't you?

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

Hi Sue
Love the background of this card, it's different but not for me to make for my friends.It's just not their style.

Love your scribbled glue background. I just want to go make backgrounds up! It is a really good card to have in reserve as so versatile. Thank you for today's video. Enjoyed it. Have a wonderful day all.

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. I remember watching you have fun making these backgrounds years ago well before the HOCHANDA days and they still look good, but like Jan, not quite my style, although I have quite a few of the CS faux pearl glue as I call it, it's either gone all watery above the nozzle, or thick and gloopy so it would take time for me to get them working properly to achieve this kind of background but I'll enjoy watching you make it on the video layer. Have 'giggling Phill' on record to see what he comes up with using your new octagons so a great lazy day ahead lol.
Sending love and hugs your way xxx

Good Morning Sue and all
I have to say what amazing back ground you have created for the back ground. The effect is stunning and the colours, thank you for doing the video. The back ground would work with so many of your dies.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all.... Wendy

BenteS said...

Love the background and the colours :))

gwen70 said...

Beautiful colours make a gorgeous background

Donita Naylor said...

Always fun, your tutorials!

I notice you always say dries clear glue but the bottles now say something about PVA glue. I'm hoping they are the same.

Dragonswing, you can click on the ad on this blog to find one place that sells Sue's dies. The link takes you to Joanna Sheen's website, where there's a gallery of Sue's cards. If you select the shopping option from the list at left, you can view by manufacturer, so choose Sue Wilson. There's also eBay and other merchants.

Best to everyone,

Tressa said...

Love this background. If it weren't for the fact I have to leave the house in five minutes to go to the dentist, I would be running upstairs to start the first gluing process ready for an anniversary card due next month!

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I'm sorry to say that this is one card that does not actually inspire me. Not my style or that of my friends either :( However I did enjoy watching you create the background and wonder if it would work as well with pastel colours.


Craftyhugs said...

Hi sue. I actually like this card and how the background turned out. I love the colour and different variations of style. I was watching Phil last night on hochanda with your octagon dies and I do love him he's fabulous lol and so talented. I adore your dies and actually managed to buy my first die of yours the other day and waiting in excitement for delivery xx

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue, 🥇Award Winning Blog 2016
First I’d Like To Apologise! I Thought Phill Was Showing Us His New Collection Of Fabulous
Stamps, But He Had Your Exceptional Octagon Dies On, (Which Was Outstanding) He Will Be Coming
Back Later This Month With His New Stamp Collection (Sorry For Incorrect Information) He Was Brilliant
On Hochanda Last Night Plus This Morning.
Now For Today’s Phenomenal Video Tutorial Which I Get So Much Joy... From Watching, Sue, You Really
Do Come Up With Superb Ways For Us To Use The Products You Bring To Us, I Can Remember You Using
A Similar Technique For The Background Using The Cosmic Shimmer Coloured PVA Glues That Also Creates
The Faux Pearls (Like You Do With Your Amazing Paved Pearl Effect) But Of Course Without The Pixie Powders
Famous Products Used In Today’s Card ✨
“Creative Expression Piercing Ruler 12 Inches/30cm”
“Creative Expression Coconut White/Antique Gold Pearl Foundation Card”
“Creative Expression Mounting Foam”
“Creative Expression Cosmic Shimmer Specialists Dries Clear Acrylic Glue”
“Creative Expression Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Polish Enchanted Gold”
“Creative Expression Pixie Powders Aqua Lagoon/Peacock Green/Purple Violet”
“Rangers Jet Black Archival Ink Pad”
“Gold Paint Pen From Stash”
Famous Cutting Dies Used In Today’s Card ✨🥇Award Winning Cutting Dies 2017
“Sue Wilson’s Mixed Essentials Die Set” (From The Industrial Chic Collection 10 Cutting Dies)
“Sue Wilson’s Inspirational Words Die Set” (From The Expression Collection 6 Cutting Dies)
(The Above Cutting Dies In My Opinion Need To Be Embossed As The Embossing Detail Is Truly Stupendous)
Sue, You Started Today’s Magnificent Card By Taking A Piece Of Coconut White Foundation Card You Then
Used The Cosmic Shimmer Specialists Dries Clear Acrylic Glue Randomly All Over Your Card Calling This Your
Scribble Technique, You Put This To Dry You Had One You Had Prepared Earlier Which Had Dried You Cut This To
The Size You Required, Then You Applied The Magnificent Pixie Powders (These Blow My Mind Away) You
Chose Aqua Lagoon/Peacock Green/Purple Violet, Sue, You Spritzed With Water Checking If More Colour Was
Required Then You Left To Dry Overnight.
Sue, Next You Brought In The Magical Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish You Went Over The Top Of The Dried/Raised
Glue Then You Took A Piece Of Kitchen Roll To Buff Up The Magical Gilding Polish, You Decided To Add In A
Strong Black Ink Around The Edges Of Your Background So You Used Rangers Jet Black Archival Ink Pad.
You Then Brought In Your Base Card With The White Mat/Layer Which Includes Your Famous/Signature/Piercing
You Then Added Mounting Foam To The Base Then Attached Your Background (You Mentioned That This Could
Become Any Type Of Card) You Decided To Add Three Sets Of The Gold Wings From Mixed Essentials Die Set
(Industrial Chic Collection) You Cut Out The Word INSPIRE From The Inspirational Words Die Set From The
(Expression Collection) You Added A Touch Of Gold Paint Pen Around The Edges Then You Used A Old Gold
Paint Pen Where You Tapped This Added Flex’s Of Gold Onto Your Word.
You Placed Your Word At Bottom Of Your Card After Applying Glue Then You Attached The Three Gold Sets Of
Wings Down The Centre Of This Remarkable Card........
Today’s Card Is Extravagant I Just Love The Phenomenal Colours Of The Pixie Powders As You Mention So Many
Times You Can’t Go Wrong With Them They Are An Outstanding Product (One Of So Many)
Thank You For Sharing Today’s Card Also The Video Tutorial Also The Daily Inspiration I Truly Appreciate Everything
You Do Thank You.......
Take Great Care My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
Extremely Wonderful Warm Fond Wishes To Colin Also Heather
Sue, Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs 🤗
Lots Of Love From Sam xxx

Pawprintx4 said...

I am going to try this with glue. I love your Caught on Crystal but still need to try this variation....so much to play at!I really like the colors you have chosen.
I am going to play with some Pixied backgrounds today to use with your cocktail dies and stamps....maybe I will get to this one (?)
I hope everyone stays warm. Glad to hear your snow is gone. I remember as a child how I loved the stuff but now I think: driving (not), slipping and sliding in the yard, wet & frosty dog, etc. I have to say it is pretty to look at through a window and is SC it doesn't stay around.

Hello Sue
I enjoyed watching this technique but like a few others am not sure about it am really enjoying watching Phill using your octagon dies.

Jean said...

Such a different technique!

Suzzette Yandle said...

Thanks for the inspiration and the video on this scribbled glue and pixie powder technique. I have tried this after watching your video on YouTube after you posted it. I did four different color combination backgrounds. Still thinking about what I want to use as my focal element for these wonderful backgrounds. Pixie Powder techniques are so much fun.

Hello Sue
Have just watched video and love this Scribbled Glue/Pixie Powdered Technique.
Personally I am not too keen on these particular dies but can see they would be great for a Man's card.
Looking forward to trying this with some of your other dies.

Dorothy Macdonald said...

Hi Sue,

Haven't seen the video yet, but the scribbled technique I have never tried. I do like pixie
powders, so one day I will try this technique, most probably with my favourite butterflies on the front of the card.

Thank you for your ideas.

Love n hugs to everyone

Marie P from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes.
I love the background you have created and I think it would be a good idea to create a few of them as stand byes for when a male card is needed. I'm so down in the dumps today but it always cheers me when you have put up a video. My Gemini die cutter has jammed and have no idea how to unjam it. The plates are 3/4 way through and the die has cut, the lights are on but not a sound from the motor. OH DEAR.
