Scrunched Lustre Polish Background

Hello crafters!  Grab your Lustre Polish and some cling film for today's card technique.  It gives a really interesting look to your backgrounds!

This is also the last video that will be put up on the blog for awhile.  I was due to film more videos in April, but the trip had to be cancelled and I do not know when it can be rescheduled at the moment.  I hope you will enjoy some of the older videos that you may have missed along the way in the meantime!

 The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hiya Sue. I have lots of cling film but no polish - no craft polish anyway and I'm sure Mr Sheen wouldn't be quite the same. I adore the effect of Pixie Powders and the cling film and if anyone hasn't been brave enough give it a go, I'm a 100% numb skull so if I can get lovely results anyone at all can do it. As far as the future videos it really doesn't matter. You've bought normality to us during these horrible worrying times so why would we be upset that we have no new tutorials, a video is a video and as there are a couple of newer crafters here I'm sure your older videos will be worth their weight in gold. Looking forward to my 10am coffee craft tutorial as always, in the meantime. ......


Morning Sue.
A lovely card thank you.
One day we will be back to normal, thank you for all the videos.
Take care and keep safe Kitty.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, thank you so much for all the video's you have provided, and quite understand that because of this virus your not able at the moment to record anymore, but we have a wealth of video's too look back on and refresh us, it is so nice sometimes to look back at some of the older products that we may have forgotten about.

A beautiful creation, I will watch the video later.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Muriel said...

Hello Sue. and all
Favourite backgrounds are the plastic wraps, this one is so lovely because of the colours too. Love the double die idea, your videos always have great techniques so won’t be a worry at all to revisit some, maybe remind us of some of our older dies too.

It’s a shame you’re not able to record anymore for now but it will give us all something to look forward to and hopefully you can rest and not stress about filming
Take care all x

Gorgeous card, love the background. I’m sure everyone will understand why there are no new videos,, it will be great to watch some older ones.


carol edwards said...

Hello Sue, wonderful background effects and lovely dies. The colours are like the deep of the ocean you get lost in the colours. Thank you for the very many videos you've produced over the years. It will be good to go over them for more ideas I've forgotten about. Enjoy your weekend, wishing you wellxx

Marie P. from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue,
What a lovely card to start off the weekend and how great to have a video that is so explicit.
I hope I have some suitable colours of the polish to try that background.So nice to learn new ways of doing things even at my age lol.
Have a lovely holiday weekend.

Hi Sue - I just love this card and the lustre polish background and dark backgrounds look so elegant with white. Love the way you have extended the die too, so clever. Thank you for all your amazing videos and I look forward to seeing some of the older ones repeated. Sending very best wishes

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. Ohh what a lovely card today those colours on the polish are beautiful. And any sentiment could be used on this one.
I totally understand about the videos Sue ...but what will I do on Saturday mornings now. Well.... like all our blog friends... we will just have to rewind and look back on all your lovely past tutorials. Thankyou Sue for everything you have done in the past for all of us. You will never know how much you mean to all your loyal bloggers. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them this morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds. PLEASE STAY SAFE EVERYONE 🙏 🙏 🙏

Hi Sue
A beautiful card and great video, thank you for all the videos you’ve shared with us and we can rewatch them until it is safe for you to resume making them

Love and hugs to everyone

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

A lovely card. I had always wondered where you filmed your videos. It will be nice to look at older ones instead. I often do this anyway. I lose hours!

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue, yet another great card. I'm sure I speak for all when I say we are blessed with the phenomenal amount of tutorials you have given us in the past that will keep us busy, should we need to know how a technique is done. It's not as though we won't have your blog everyday. Now that would be a tremendous loss, should that happen. Stay safe and well. WakeyL

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I always learn such a lot by watching your videos so thank you Sue. I look forward to looking through your past archives though I have lost whole afternoons doing that. Your blog means such a lot we are so lucky to have you in our lives. Stay safe everyone x

Owlish said...

Beautiful card design and great video. I have tried your technique with the cling wrap over Lustre polishes. Even though I did create wonderful veins, I think I need to do this technique again and use more product to get deeper veins. Surely you are disappointed about not being able at this time to film more videos. And ofcourse your blog family is disappointed, too. We can wait and just do reruns of your older videos as well as look forward to the next set of videos whenever you are able to make them. I like watching older videos. I appreciate your older videos for they remind me of techniques I meant to try but forgot how to do them.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card. Love the polish background and the clever way you have extended the background die. Fully appreciate the reason for no more new videos for a while but as I have a brain like a sieve I often go back to your older ones anyway to remind me how to do something. You have a great archive and there is something in there for everyone.

A lovely card. It’s a shame that there won’t be any new videos but this does give me a chance to revisit some older ones and maybe discover some new techniques. X

I am sure we all completely understand you not being able to film more videos at the present time so it will now be something to look forward to for the future.

I do love the background colours on this, lustre polish is beautiful...beautiful card...luv Ursula xx

ursula said...

Sorry Sue, I am sorry to hear no more news videos as yet, but life will return to normal and we can push 'resume' and get on with life again. In the meantime, thank you for all those videos you have given us, more than enough to go back on and get inspiration from, I never tire of your tutorials, etc....nothing like Sue Wilson and her cards, in my eyes. Take care everyone, be safe...luv Ursula xx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
the background on this card is just stunning, and then the die makes it doubly stunning.
Will have a look at your videos - have been trouble finding them (but I'm sure that's only me with my computer troubles).
Have good bank holiday (yes it's Monday)

CCM said...

Hi Sue,
Lovely card and a great video.
We understand why we won't see new videos, and will enjoy again the old ones. Anyway, I personally have so much to learn from the old videos so I will take the time and watch again as many as I can.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

Always enjoy your videos and really like the luster polish on this card. It really allows the beautiful die cut to pop.
