Hello Everyone! It’s been a while since I posted anything for Lifestyle Crafts. But I’m here today with an exciting news! Now you can find the L Letterpress Bundle, Lifestyle Crafts inks, and Studio Calico exclusive letterpress printing plates & dies at Studio Calico Store!
I received a few Studio Calico plates and dies to showcase today!
I hope that you can see the debossed details in the photo. It is really amazing in real life!
With letterpress, you can also achieve a multi-color look because the L Letterpress system has some great alignment tools to help with the placement. I used 3 colors on my card here:
I love that we have matching dies for the plates too. All embellishments on this card were letterpressed and die cut:
If you are not familiar with L Letterpress, you can find some video tutorials here to get you started. I also had a step-photo post here. I am very excited that Studio Calico is having an online Letterpress Class starting September 1, 2013!
The techniques they are going to cover sounded very interesting. Hmmm, $29 with a class kit included… I am really tickled LOL We have until September 15 to decide! :) If you are considering joining the class, please read the class info page carefully. You do need a die cutting machine and a Letterpress Bundle (or the L Letterpress Platform + Cleaning Cloth + Ink Guide Strips) to play along with the class.
Before I go, I would like to share a couple in-process photos I shared on Instagram. You are welcome to follow me if you are interested in seeing my craft hoards and project sneak peaks. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
