INKLING: Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress plus a Giveaway

Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress via homework | carolynshomework.comI’m so pleased to share with you my very first attempt at letterpress. I’m a huge fan of letterpress and I couldn’t wait to try out my Lifestyle Craft Evolution machine with letterpress plates.

This piece was made using the orange ink. I made several of these using various floral plates placed randomly.

Here’s the same card cut into three sections and mounted on a coordinating orange card. I’m thinking of framing this one.

  6. Caorlyn...your cards and embossing are beautiful! I have a Cuttlebug with embossing plates....but this is something entirely different. I could think of dozens of ways to use your version. The addition of color is fantastic.
    Thanks for sharing at Project Inspire{d}!
