SPELLBINDERS | BetterPress Plate of the Month – Corner Sunflowers

September 20, 2023

Hello crafty friends! I absolutely LOVE the Spellbinders BetterPress system and all of the BetterPress Plates that are available. If you haven’t yet check out this month’s club set (Corner Sunflowers), you should definitely do so! There is no commitment once you join. If you sign up for this month’s set, you can simply cancel before the next month’s deadline if you decide that you don’t want it. It’s as simple as that! More details can be found HERE.

I created two cards using the same set to show you different ways that you can use it. The first method is super simple with no coloring involved. To start, I ink blended a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of BetterPress Porcelain Card Stock with some Seedless Preserves, Festive Berries, and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide Inks. I then added some water spatters with a small round paint brush and blotted it dry with a clean paper towel.

Once my panel was dry, I then inked up my BetterPress Plate with some BetterPress Black Ink. I attached my inked panel to my the top of my BetterPress LetterPress System with some Best Ever Craft Tape and ran it through my die cutting machine.

I did the same thing with my sentiment and then used the coordinating die to cut it out. Next, I trimmed my ink-blended panel to 3.75″ x 5″ and layered it with some white and coral pieces of card stock.

For my second project, I first pressed my image into my BetterPress Porcelain Card Stock with BetterPress Black Ink and then used my Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to water color my flowers.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! If interested, you can check out this month’s club set HERE or through the links below.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

      Thank you so much, my sweet friend! If you go back to my post or check out my Instagram feed, I just uploaded a quick reel that shows the gist of how to use the system. I was a bit overwhelmed the first time that I used it (not sure why), but it’s seriously super easy to use. 👍🏻🥰

    Hello, I'm Rachel! Thanks so much for dropping by and welcome to my blog! I love creating and am excited to share with you my love for card making and paper crafting.
