Wow, this set is so much fun and I'm sharing three projects with you today.
Card 1: wonderful, amazing best friend A2
    1. Spray Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron onto an A4 piece of watercolor card and allow to dry. You will get 4 panels from this but for now cut one panel 3" x 4 1/4".
    2. Stamp the cursive script, the grid and small hexagon onto your panel with black shadow ink. Top Tip - Allow to completely dry before heat embossing or else you'll cover your whole card with embossing powder.
    3. Gold heat emboss some of the circle stains in the corners.
    4. Die cut the grid and any card and use as a stencil with White Chalk Mousse (it's amazing!)
    5. Add black and white acrylic ink splatter.
    6. Die cut the grid three times in white card and once in welsh gold glitter card. adhere together for a chipboard effect. Trim and apply onto your panel.
    7. Die cut wonderful, amazing, best, and friend in black and white, apply foam pads and stick to the front of your panel.
    8. Trim a piece of jet black card 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
    9. Assemble onto an A2 card blank add champagne shine sequins.
FULL VIDEO PROCESS HERE:
Card 2: Hello A6
  1. Trim a piece of your already sprayed panel to just fit the HELLO die panel.
  2. Stamp the cursive script, and the grid onto your panel with black shadow ink.
  3. Gold heat emboss some of the circle stains in the corners and zigzag.
  4. Use the same grid from card 1 to use as a stencil again with White Chalk Mousse.
  5. Die cut the grid twice in welsh gold and place behind a piece of black card.
  6. Mat and layer onto white and gold until you have an US A6 size card.
Card 3: You Are Lit mini slimline
  1. Trim a watercolor panel 6 inches by 3.5 inches (this will be further trimmed)
  2. Stamp the cursive script, and the grid onto your panel with black shadow ink.
  3. Die cut 2 grids from any card and stencil the white chalk mousse onto your panel in several places.
  4. Smooth your Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide onto a non stick surface and spray with a little water. Press your panel into the ink/water mixture with a light patting motion until you are happy with the look.
  5. Add more distress oxide to a non stick surface and then mix a small amount of White Chalk Mousse into the color. This is freakin amazing as you have the chalk finish of the mousse and matte oxide finish - AWESOME! Because you're mixing the color from the ink pad and not a liquid, there is no change to the consistency of the mousse.
  6. Use the other grid to stencil the tumbled glass chalk mousse onto your panel (do not throw this away).
  7. Trim panel 5" x 2"
  8. Splatter white and gold acrylic ink over your panel and allow to completely dry.
  9. Die cut 2 welsh gold grids and 4 watercolor grids but save the small squares from the glitter card.
  10. Die cut the letters that spell out YOU ARE LIT 8 times. 6 regular white card, 1 harvest gold mirror card, 1 watercolor card. Layer up all 6 white letters and then add your watercolor letters on top. Create a drop shadow with the gold letter and set aside.
  11. Work out your die cut grid pattern and then use your grid from steps 6 and 8 to create your design. Add the glitter squares back in to some of the grid.
  12. Attach your letters to the front of your panel and allow to dry.
  13. Trim teal card 5 1/4" x 2 1/4"
  14. Assemble onto a slimline card base 6" x 3 1/2" and add champagne shine sequins.
These next two cards are from the same panel we sprayed. I have enough left for at least 2 more A2 cards but probably much more.

    1. Hi Kathy and thank you so much for leaving me a comment. As I'm from Southern California I still say things like you're awesome or you're rad or you're lit - it is a term of endearment for me to my friends. I guess that's what makes this set so versatile, you can make things that are meaningful to you with all the letters available.
