Lots of Love – Letter press plate

I purchased the new letter press plate and had a fun afternoon trying it out to see what I can make with it.  This card turned out pretty good I think. 

A photo really does not do it justice.  The plate embosses the words into the paper.  I only inked the one large “Love” with  real red craft ink on the letter press and ran white paper through the Big Shot with it.  I then decided to take a sponge and sponge color onto the card and was amazed at the effect.  The sponging made the other “love” words stand out to but in a different way.  I used Real Red and a touch of Cherry Cobbler classic ink pads for most of the sponging and then a small bit of white craft ink to add some highlights.  Then I tore the right edge layered that on white cs with the same tore edge and then again on my red card base.  I added the ribbon to the letter “V” which I thought was a nice touch.  The little hearts were stamped on white CS with real red ink using the “Love You Much” stamp set.  It is one stamp with three hearts and then I took my coordinating punch and punched them out.  I decided to give them the glossy look by using a product called “Crystal Effects”.  Stampin’ Up! sells this in the catalog.  A fun product.  It requires some dry time but it makes any stamp almost into an embellishment.  I also sprinkled some of my “Dazzling Diamonds” glitter onto the Crystal Effects before it dries to make them sparkle.  Then I cut them out and put them on the card.

Paper Piercing Tool

I want to show you the paper piercing tool that Stampin’ Up sells.  It is a handy tool to own.  This tool allows you to insert brads, create tiny, precisely-spaced holes on any paper using our steel paper-piercing tool. You can use it along with the template in the mat pack to create precisely spaced, perfectly aligned holes. It is also very useful in picking up the glimmer and pearl accents and placing them where you want them.
■ 3-1/2″ handle with 3/4″ piercing tip

■ Includes storage tube and protective cap

Paper-Piercing Tool  item #116631    $3.50

This is nicely coupled with the Mat Pack Punch.  Punch holes and set eyelets on the mat to protect your tabletop. With the Mat Pack, you’ll have a template to create beautiful pierced designs in card stock or projects. Mat, paper-piercing pad, and paper-piercing template are each are 4″ x 4″.

Now that I have this item, I often wonder how come I didn’t have it sooner.  I use it all the time.
