Spellbinders | Mushroom Duo

Hello there, today I have a tag to share with you using the Spellbinders Mushroom Duo Press Plate that works with the Betterpress System. I'm sure you already know about the Betterpress System but if you do not, I made a video using it which you can see here

I started off by pressing the Spellbinders Mushroom Duo Press Plate & Die Set plate onto Strathmore Toned Tan Mixed Media Paper using Spellbinders Betterpress Black Ink (the one that comes with the Spellbinders Betterpress System). The mixed media paper is pretty thick and the impression worked beautifully! 

I then die cut the panel using the Spellbinders Essential Arches Etched Dies. I also cut the same shape from white cardstock. I cut a little off the bottom of the image one and then coloured the mushrooms using Copic Markers and Polychromos pencils. This ink is not known to work with Copic Markers but I found that I did not get any bleeding on this paper using them. 

I lined the two arches together and punched a hole through the top using my Crop-A-Dile. I then threaded Spellbinders Journey Twine through and tied in a bow to create a tag. I hot foiled the 'hello' from the Spellbinders Hello, Friend Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate set onto white cardstock using Spellbinders Black Foil and the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.

It was die cut out using the Spellbinders Wonderful Script Etched Dies set and I also cut another two of the die before adhering them behind the foiled one for added dimension. It was adhered to the tag with Bearly Art Glue. To finish off, I added white gel pen to the dots on the mushrooms and then a few dots around them.

The Spellbinders Betterpress Autumn Collection which this plate is from is beautiful! There are a few leaf sets, as well as these mushrooms and they all have a beautiful autumn/fall vibe to them. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I really do appreciate you taking the time to do so. I wish you a wonderful week ahead! Take care!


  1. Absolutely lovely! This image works great on a tag of this size and I love the warm tones of the tan paper. I went to check to see if I have this paper but I have the grey version. I really like the tan though! It's beautifully made and the scripty hello is just right! xx
