Embossed Hi Low Technique

Hi crafters!  Today's video shows one of my favourite techniques!  It is so easy to do too with simply stunning results.  I hope you will give it a try after you've finished watching the video!
Julia Watts has shows today on Create and Craft tv at 1pm and 6pm with some brand new Creative Expressions stamps.  Don't forget to watch!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

Finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, such a stunning card today Sue, I love it, would never have thought of combining all the elements together and then running through embossing folder but what a stunning effect that has, another one on my list to try. Also love your stick pins, I also make my own and get so much satisfaction from doing them.

I am lucky enough to be coming to Ally Pally on a mini bus on Sunday so will see you there, so looking forward to seeing you again - hope I can squeeze through the crowds as I will be in my wheelchair.

I do hope everyone is OK, how's Robbie Pam and also your leg?

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

Hi Sue
A beautiful card to cheer up a very dull day, will be trying to watch video later as once Jessica has gone to school will be heading off to Mum's to take her shopping, phone has been playing up as when I try and read comments from the other posts it turns off so might have to try and use daughters lap top later.
Gentle hugs for baby Leo and I hope Pam and Robbie are doing we'll, and love and hugs to all the Wilsonettes.
Sending special love and hugs to the lovely Norah, Rory and the family on the loss of your Mum my heart and love goes out to you all.
Happy crafting
Love Tina x x x x x

Good morning Sue
Simply Stunning! That sums up today's card for me, I will have to watch the video later because it won't load up for me this morning (trouble my end with internet). I have just been looking on C&C and love all the new stamps, now the decision I have to make is, do I go for them or wait until the weekend for your weekender? Oh the decisions us crafters have to make lol.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Today's gift has definitely got to be one of the most beautiful I have seen for a long time. It has the feel of such richness and elegance and I love how you have used both flakes and snow. I would never have thought of using both but certainly will be doing so. I would just love love love to have this beautiful piece of art.

Norah - stay strong young lady. Please take everything one day at a time. You're all in my prayers and heart. Special hugs to yourself and Rory.

Today is 'Manchester here I come'. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to manage all the crowds but I have walking stick at the ready and my wonderful Mr.E with me.

Hope everyone feels a little better today. Take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Will sit and watch it after I have commented., so much to look forward to with Julia's shows today and then Sue's Weekender and the following week we have Ally Pally! I would be jumping up and down....if I could!
Norah, sorry to hear that you have been so poorly and in hospital, I guess that taking everything into account your body decided to make you slow down! I really do wish you a speedy recovery to get through Friday and then try to relax and let your body recover. Hugs ll
Steph you sound a little low at the moment too, I wish I had a 'magic happiness wand' to wave over anyone who needed itm I can send you a big hug instead xxxx
Janet, you are brave, I hope you only need the walking stick for support ! Mr E sounds very much like Mr R, a very patient, kind & caring man, I hope you feel as lucky as I do, I get to spend my quality time with my 'best friend' & husband all in one! Enjoy your day, look forward to your update xx
To all of you lovely, kind, caring friends, I hope the sun is shining for you today, hugs xxxx

Fantastic, brilliant video and such a beautiful card, I love the High Low technique and you've taken it one step further by showing as we can use our embossing folders with this technique, the effect is stunning, Thank you.
Take care love Brenda xxx

Norah, So sorry to read you've been in hospital, gastroenteritis is awful at the best of times, for you dear lady it couldn't have come at a worse time, sending you and your family especially Rory very gentle and caring hugs, love and prayers.

Janet, you make me smile when you said about all the crowds at Manchester craft show, then said you have your walking stick with you - is it to lean on? OR move the crowds, only joking, I'm sure you're too much of a lady for that, but it did amuse me. Pleased you have your lovely Mr E beside you to lean on.

Sandra, tried again yesterday to leave a message on your blog and when I press Google account it just disappears so don't know what I'm doing wrong, anyway take care and keep well.

Hi Sue and all friends.
The most stunning card today Sue, but bought me out in sheer panic moad ! Sticky sheet, guilding flakes AND embossing ?! That spells complete DISASTER for me, id not be able to hold my breath for that long, and the thought of embossing with the sticky sheet, well, I just know it would go so wrong, I came out in a sweat watching the video, and Im watching a crafting professional who knows what she's doing !!!
It really is most stunning though Sue.

Hate Thursday's ! Thank goodness for Particraft and Thursday video's.

Sending love n friendly cuddles to all my special Wilsonette friends today.

Hello Sue
What a stunning card.Thank you for another wonderful and very Inspirational Video. I will have to remember to use the wax back of the double sided paper to smooth everything down that is a very good tip and to also to trim before putting the gilding flakes down something i dont do. Using the gilding flakes and the Ice snow really has made your pop and it's stunning Sue . I have all the dies and the Embossing folder you have used so will be try to make this card. Thank you Sue for showing us another stunning technique

Amazing card Sue!
Love the gilding flakes and the iced snow, when added together they are stunning.
I would never have thought of embossing the finished card but it looks fab. Your videos are so informative and easy to follow, I look forward to watching them but have to admit I have already watched them on youtube.

Hi Sue and everyone! Love,love this card how beautiful it is! Have not had the chance yet to read your comments or seen the video but will shortly,I promise :-) Yesterday and today mostly has been under a web of grey and dizziness, got new meds.just over a week ago and not sure if it's them or something else wrong.So I guess it's back to the doc.for a talk.appointment Monday.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

A gorgeous card. I love the colours, the techniques, all of it! I'm amazed the glitter didn't scratch the embossing folder!

Speaking of embossing folders, I did buy myself 4 of them today, and the pva glue in 4 colours to go with. Retail therapy, works every time! Figured as Ally Pally wasn't a goer (June, I find crafters are the best if I'm in a busy place in my chair. I say excuse me if it's busy and at craft shows people always let me through. Sad to say in other places tbat isn't always the case!) I could spend a little extra month.

Norah, I'm so sorry to hear you've been poorly on top of grieving for your mother. I hope you are recovering from your illness now and I'm thinking of you and all your family, especially Rory. Hugs of condolence xxxx

Steph, your feelings are never invalid and how each person feels (emotionally or pain wise) can never be compared with another. Don't hold it in, I did and I still feel bad. Wish I'd sorted it at the time and then I wouldn't feel so grim now. Heartfelt hugs x

I tried to catch up on everyone's comments but I don't remember much after watching Sue's brilliant video... did that in the wrong order, didn't I?!

I'm still not in a great frame of mind, if I try to explain it I might very much melt again, Mr W home in under an hour so I'd prefer not to. Your messages have really helped me this last week, thank you all so much- so I will go and try do something constructive, brace myself up, whizz to the shop for chocolate, then craft once Mr W is off walking Billy. I also need some fast loud music to shout along to,
Always makes me feel better.

Special hugs for Sue, I can't wait till the weekend, will be watching on the laptop, not quite crafting along as working to order! Pam & Robbie, Sandra, Linda, Lynne and the princesses, Maria, Alison (Mecca),YorkieLass June,Baby Leo, Myra, Lindsay, Theresa... struggling to remember any more names now. Special hugs too for anyone I forgot, anyone ill, in any type of pain or recovering and to Wilsonettes everywhere and anywhere.

Hi Sue, I love this technique, the end result is stunning! I see some more things to add to my wish list, especially the gilding flakes as I don't have that colour. The Delightful Daisy Dies really need to be in my possession as well :). As always, thanks for sharing with us. x

Karen Drew said...

That is a stunning card. Have watched carefully so I can have a go.
Thanks for the tip on the jewels on the stick pins, I had no idea on how to get the beads to stay on

Love this card, but I'm with Steph on this one, I'd have the gilding flakes in my hair and the sticky sheet I'd probably sit on it without knowing. I'd love to do these techniques but have sneezed just as I put the lid on the gilding flakes (only once used) they were everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Tony (hubby) wondered why I had shiny bits in my underwear, but we had a laugh over it. They (flakes) sit on my shelf just staring at me waiting to tip upside down, they shall stay there for quite a while I think. I am in awe of all those crafters who seem to find these techniques easy.
I am making flowers at the moment and had a day where I can't remember anything so walked away and hopefully tomorrow I will remember what to do.
Hugs to all those in pain and to anyone who needs a hug I'm here to send you one.
Love Theresa x

Hi Sue, stunning card and great video. I love the high/low technique but would never have dreamt of embossing it as well, it's brilliant!
It has been a long day and I still have Julia's recorded shows to watch. I might manage one before I fall into bed. Looking forward to your shows at the week-end.

Norah I do hope you are starting to feel a little better hugs to you and Rory.

Special hugs especially to Pam, Cameeli, Sandra, Lindsay, Lynda, Steph, Tina and especially Sue.

magpie said...

Helloooooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Well, good grief, where do I start? Three stunning cards Sue and two fantastic videos! Wonderful! It's having your very own Sue in class! Fantastic techniques and clever use of the bows to make a flower. I love the rows of bows EF very much.....:) Great effect of the gilding flakes and Iced Snow together. I love it, it's so elegant and definitely a "wow!" factor! One for Christmas cards me thinks.....! "Thank you Sue" for all the inspiration that you give to us. Good luck to you all in the Wednesday card giveaway! Another beautiful card....xx I'd love a piece of your creative! Shhhh I won't tell anyone....honest....! Lol! Sending love and hugs to you and your family Sue xx Norah, what can I say? So so sorry to hear about your mum and that you have been poorly too. Sending lots and lots of heartfelt love and hugs to you....xxxxx :( Sending love and hugs to you Lynne, hope you're feeling better from your iffy tummy xx Wheelybad, whenever I felt low music helped me so much. I'd play songs that would make me cry (it got it out of my system) and then I'd put more upbeat one's that would take you back. It IS a great idea to put on your headphones and have a good sing song! Just remember though, the louder you sing the more chance you'll have of getting a bucket of cold water over you! Lol! I always had my music on loud....not realising how bad you sound to someone elses ears! My mum and sister used to be in was a while before they told me though....! I used to love "The Only Way Is Up" what a pick me up song that was.....there's also "Don't Worry Be Happy" have a nutty moment and go girl! :) xx
Sending love and hugs to Pam, Yorkielass, Lynda, Lyndsey and to all our Wilsonettes that need a love and hug today xx Take everyone xx Love Karen xx

Margaret corgi owner said...

Oops how could I forget the lovely Yorkielass too!

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
Truly lovely card! I love these techniques and the seeming simplicity of the card! It ain't as simple as it looks but very satisfying and effective.
Had visitors today so literally just loaded the dishwasher and sat down as I have to sit for a while before going to bed or I won't sleep! Having a cup of coffee and a read!
Looking forward to the Weekender Shows! Will be lovely to have you back.
Not sure if anyone reads the late posts apart from Sue so will leave comments tomorrow - today actually!
Hope you ok Pam and you making progress.
Special hug to Norah and Rory! Xx
Love Myra

I've just made a variation of this card using the French background die on cream card-stock with golden flecked gilding flakes. I'm so pleased with the result. Thank you so much Sue for sharing this technique with me. Happy Days!
