Summer Kisses






In this tutorial I used the beautiful bonus tube “Coming Untied” by
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase Barbara’s tubes directly from

The kit is “Summer Kisses” by
Crazy Carita.
A gorgeous kit in lovely colours, also available at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 26 from

I used the free plugin 3D Shadow by

Font of choice.



Unless noted, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Copy paper 5, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, resize 50% and rotate 20 degrees to the left.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20 and make a new layer below it, copy paper 2 and paste it into the selection.  Paste your tube as a new layer and, resizing as needed, position it in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay”.   Close off your white background and mask layers and merge visible, re-open the closed layers and put the merged layer into position.  I used the close up tube resized 60%.

Paste element 22 as a new layer, resize 70%, drag below the merged layer and duplicate, place both copies in position and apply the drop shadow to each. 

Paste element 12 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1 as a new layer and bring to the top,  resize 60% and rotate 20 degrees to  the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer,  resize 60%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer, resize 45% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 65% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19 as a new layer, resize 50%, drag it down to just above the frame and position on the left, duplicate, move the duplicate down and to the right and erase the part that overlaps with the first copy.  Apply a drop shadow to each changing the blur to 5 and opacity to 50.

Paste element 30 as a new layer on the top, resize 50%, use you Pick tool to make the text taller, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember  to unsharp mask after using the Pick tool and also remember  to change the shadow settings back).

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, tuck behind the word art and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag below element 11, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 as a new layer on the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9 as a new layer,  resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27 as a new layer, resize 18% and duplicate, rotate the duplicate 90 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply Locas 3D Shadow using  with the settings in my screenshot below.
