Craft Your Life Project Kit Inspiration

I have two projects to share with you today using the new Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence, so let's get started with the details!

Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence

Both projects feature mustard as a prominent color, with some added golden gilding to add extra luxury. I also added some rich plum, maroon, and fuchsia watercoloring to create a unique and intense color palette.

ALT CYL Florescence 1

For the first card, I used the super-detailed 3D Embossing Folder included in the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence with some deep mustard cardstock.

I ran the embossing folder with the mustard cardstock through my die-cutting machine to create the raised image, then swiped my Embossing Ink pad over the raised areas. I then sprinkled some gold embossing powder over the sticky ink and heated it with my heat gun.

These shining gilded edges help to add such a luxurious feel to the card front!

I splattered some Metallic Watercolors on the gilded card front to add some extra metallic shine.

I wanted to emphasize the beautiful embossed image even further, so I used a Blending Tool and some Yellow Ochre ink to blend some deep gold around the edges of the card front, highlighting the raised image.

Next, I heat embossed a greeting from Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence onto another strip of the same mustard-colored cardstock then backed it with some gold glitter paper from the Gilded Cardstock Set. A few iridescent golden gems finished it off!

For my second card, I heat embossed one of the floral corners from the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence stamp set onto an A2 panel of watercolor paper using the same rich gold embossing powder.

I taped the embossed panel down to my watercolor board, leaving a wide edge to create a white frame, then used the Artist's Watercolor 24 Pan watercolor set to add lots of intense yellow, plum, magenta, and maroon color to the image and the surrounding area, mixing and matching the colors in the palette to create these custom colors.

ALT CYL Florescence 4

I removed the painter's tape from the edges of the card front once it had dried, then added a dimensional glittery gold die-cut sentiment from the Script Words 2 die set, cut from the Gilded Glitter Cardstock Set.

I also gold-embossed a greeting from Inside and Out: Thanks onto some coordinating maroon cardstock using the same gold embossing powder, then popped it up on the card front with foam adhesive. I added a few more iridescent gold gems for some added texture and sparkle.

Well, that's all for my projects today! I hope you enjoyed seeing the gorgeous new Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence kit in action. Now for some fun giveaway information!
