Today, I’m over on the Paper Crafts blog talking again about tools.
This time, I am talking about the L Letterpress Tool from Lifestyle Crafts. If you haven’t heard of the Letterpress, it’s a pretty amazing tool for paper crafters. It allows you to achieve the look of letterpress, which is basically debossing paper and filling the debossed areas with ink.
Go to Paper Crafts Connection to see exactly how the tool works as well as three projects I made with it. Here’s a peek of the projects from over there.
And I’ve got three bonus projects to share with you here today. 😉
I used four of the Letterpress’ printing plates on this one (3 flowers and 1 word). I inked only the thanks word when I did the printing. I left the flowers uninked.
I used one of the large background printing plates made for the Letterpress on this one. I did kind of a masking technique here. I set a circle cut from cardstock on my paper and then printed over it. After I finished printing, I removed the circle and got the cool white circle.
I wanted to see how the Letterpress worked when I made several cards and changed out the ink colors. Believe it or not, I printed 10 cards with the Christmas tree printing plate. I switched between green and gold inks so I got a real assortment. Then, I printed several sentiments with black ink. I cut them up and then added them randomly to the cards.
That’s all for now.
Be back again tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by.
