inked rose letterpress projects

Last week We R Memory Keepers launched their exciting new Evolution Advanced tool on HSN. (You can read about the first-of-their-kind features of the new Evolution Advanced HERE.)

I thought it would be fun to share some of the projects I created for the launch of this awesome new tool. This tool can die cut, emboss, and letterpress. There is a dial that sets the pressure of the rollers based on the project you are creating so that you only need one mat and platform. Plus it's got an optional attachable motor in you're going to be cranking out a lot of projects.

Here are some letterpress and die cut cards I made:



For these cards I letterpressed the background and added a Monarch die cut and some elements from the Inked Rose collection.


It's easy to make bulk cards or card sets with the Evolution Advanced. For this card set I letterpressed the floral print and the sentiments, and then added the die cut flags and pennants, and twine.


I love the new alpha letterpress plates. It's easy to add text to your project using the typesetting guide, and the set comes with multiple letters so you can make any sentiment, title, or phrase you'd like.




And here's a gift set of letterpress recipe cards I created as well. It was easy to letterpress multiple recipe cards by just replacing the paper, re-inking the plates, and running the platform through my Evolution again.



I upcycled a box that was packaging for a set of printing plates I ordered--love to re-use items like that. A small piece of sticky back velcro allows the recipient to close and reopen the box to retrieve the cards.

I hope these projects inspired you. The Evolution Advanced it truly a game-changing tool for crafters and We R hit it out of the park again with their innovation and forward thinking.
