It's called the Letterpress and it's pretty cool!!!  

      Letterpress Starter Kit    Blossoms Printing Plates
Using the letterpress starter kit and the blossoms printing plates, I made these fun cards.

This is how I made them:
I first put the plates onto the double sided paper.  I cut out the plates that I wanted to use

I peeled off the paper on the plate and inked the roller

I put the plate onto the lid and inked it.  I love that both the lid and the mat have grids, super easy to line things up!

I put some paper onto the mat and then closed the lid.  I put it through my Epic 6

And here it is.  I love how even the ink is and the fun pattern!

I did the same thing with the flowers and then words.  I even use it on ribbon for the words.  Photobucket
