      Well one of the things we get plenty of in our kits is letters. So I was thinking, and thinking. Not another flower tutorial, but something different for the next kit. Then as I was going through my stash, I realized that I was running out of my Prima sugared letters. So I had an idea. A tutorial of a different kind. Well, I have a few Prima sugared letters left, and I really love them. I cant find them anywhere. I'm wondering if they even make them anymore. I would love for them to come in different colors. So I figured, they are easy enough to make. So here you go. There are only 4 steps. Easy. If you don't have Diamond dust, you could substitute clear glitter. Diamond Dust gives it the Prima authentic look.

          Step 1.
          Paint your letters using an even coat of paint. You may give it a second coat. Dry thoroughly.

            Step2.
            Ink your stamp generously and lightly stamp your painted letters, being careful not to move the stamp around or rock it, as that will smudge your letters. Let dry thoroughly. If you like, you could take a dab of acrylic paint and use it like a wash over the stamped letters in random spots to give them a wo faded look.

              Step3.
              Using Rock Candy Stickles ot glossy accents, paint your finished letter and while the stickles is still wet, dip it in the Diamond Dust lightly.

                Step 4.
                You may use as spray fixative to set your Diamond Dust. Make sure it is glossy and doesn't yellow. This step is optional. Have fun making letters to perfectly match your LO's.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                          Awesome tutorial! TFS. What kind of fixative do you recommend that won't yellow?
