Spellbinders: Floral Celebration

Hi friends! Today I am back on the Foiled Fox Blog with a couple of cards that use the Floral Celebration Betterpress press plate and coordinating stencil from Spellbinders. Let's get started...

I started my card by using the Betterpress Letterpress System along with the Floral Celebration press plate. I inked the press plate up with Betterpress Black ink and ran it through my die cutting machine along with a Spellbinders Betterpress Porcelain card panel. Since I had everything ready to use it was easy to make a few panels at this time. 

Next, I used the Layered Floral Celebration stencils to add color to the florals and foliage. I love that there are stencils available with this press plate! It gives you so many more options and it is such a quick and easy way to add color to your panel. I used Concord & 9th ink for my blending (Ballet Slipper, Briar Rose, Wildberry, Grasshopper, Juniper, and Rainforest). 

For my sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips: Valentine stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat set it with white embossing powder. I then used the Sentiment Strip dies to die cut my sentiment and my scalloped backer. Lastly, I used the Spring Foliage dies to die cut a few floral accents for my card.

My next card is very similar to my card above. There are just a few minor changes... I again used Concord & 9th ink for my blending (Nectar, Spiced Cider, Honeycomb, Grasshopper, Juniper, and Rainforest). For my sentiment I used the Everyday Expressions die set from Concord & 9th. I love these dies! The font, size and overall design is perfect for adding to a card panel such as this.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope I inspired you to give the Betterpress press plate and coordinating stencils a try. There are so many possibilities and color combinations that can be used with them. I know you will love them!!

Enjoy your day,
