Hello Crafty Friends,

I previously shared a card featuring new wax seal beads, but I did not share one featuring the same collection, “Pressed Poised Collection,” so I am sharing it now.

Thank you for Making Me Smile Card

“I really like this Cosmos Backdrop Press Plate! It also comes with a coordinating stencil.”


I used the coordinating stencil after black ink pressed the plate.


I use mini brushes from Spellbinders to stencil, making it easy to color small areas and details.

Sealed Florals Card

I made a card using the Sealed Florals BetterPress Plate and the Sealed Cord & Faux Seal Sentiment BetterPress Plate. The card base is Teal, so I created custom bead mixes using Spruce and Pistachio beads that match the color of the card. Spruce and Pistachio color beads are also new releases of this month.


  1. Trim a piece of Lagoon Color Cardstock to 4.25” x 5.5, and emboss it with the Embossing Folder Club of the Month (Jan 2024)
  2. I used a white Paper Pouncer to apply white ink onto the embossed paper.
  3. Better Pressed the Sealed Florals Plate onto the Better Press Cotton Card Panel with black ink. Then I Better Pressed the Sealed Cord Plate with Tawny Brown ink in the middle of the flower bouquet.
  4. Use markers to color the flower bouquet, then die-cut it with the Essential Modern Ovals die. Cut the gold mirror cardstock with the bigger size of the bouquet image oval and mat it under the bouquet.
  5. Melt the three spruce wax beads and one of the Pistachio wax beads on the warmer spoon.
  6. Pour the melted mixture onto the silicone mat and stamp it with the Bloomy For You Wax Seal Stamp, WSOM Nov. 23.
  7. To add a touch of elegance, use a gold metallic marker to color the wax seal.
  8. Attach the wax seal with glue on the card.
