L is for Letterpress!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. It's so fun to watch my kids get excited when they see all the toys Santa brought them. They are still at that age when Christmas is so magical. I remember those days and I love being able to relive them through my kids.

I got a toy for Christmas, too. It's the L Letterpress kit by Lifestyle Crafts. This cool tool allows you to do letterpress with your die cut machine. I used my Cuttlebug, but I think it works in most machines. The hubby bought mine from Amazon, but I think you can get them at scrapbook stores, too.

I've only had the opportunity to use it a few times, but so far I am "impressed." (Ha ha, get it? Impressed!) I had to play with it a little to get the image to come out the way I like it. I plan to play with it a little more and give a review of it later.

Here are a couple card I made with my new toy:


 Recipe: Paper: Lifestyle Crafts, Ink: Lifestyle Crafts, Memento, Stamp: Joy's Life, Tools: L Letterpress, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Embellishments: gems, pleated ribbon.


Recipe: Paper: Lifestyle Crafts, Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny, Stamp: Joy's Life, Ink: Lifestyle Crafts, Stampin' Up!, Tools: L Letterpress, Embellishments: Flowersoft, snowflakes, ribbon.

Where are you getting this brilliant idea with the using of the lace in a paper card ????If you can use the multi colors lace in a card they look more aggressive and bright combination!!!!
