Daily winners receive all three of the new designs!


Today's new die is S4-341 Wavy Rectangles
Dimensions

1: 3/8 x ½”

2: 1 1/8 x 1 ¼”

3: 1 7/8 x 2 1/8

4: 2 ¾ x 3 1/8”

5. 3 5/8 x 4 ¼”



For my project I designed an altered Autumn canvas and matching card ensemble using the NEW S4-341 Wavy Rectangles, S4-346 Labels Twenty-Two and Precious Metals Premium Craft Foil (copper) from Spellbinders. This would make a perfect hostess gift for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

I started with a white 6 x 6 canvas that I picked up at the dollar store. I used Black ECO-Friendly Acrylic Paint from ECO Green Crafts to paint the entire canvas.


Next I used the S4-341 Wavy Rectangles #4 and #5 to create the fame die cut. I lined up the die templates and used some removable tape to hold in place while cutting/embossing with the Grand Calibur.


Once I cut/embossed the frame then I lightly sanded the paper. I used Bronze Metallic paper from Discount Cardstock. I love the look that is achieved when sanding the Bronze Metallic paper, the under tones of the black really pop.


To create the other die cuts I used S4-341 Wavy Rectangles #2 and S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags & Accents. For the leaves I used Precious Metals Premium Craft Foil (copper) from Spellbinders and lightly sanded all of the pieces.


I used 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to layer the die cuts along the side of the canvas.


For the stamped image I used Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and CL-02200 Autumn Labels Twenty-Two from JustRite. I used S4-346 Labels Twenty-Two to create the die cut. Then I used Ranger Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick Distress Inks to add color to the image. The border was colored using Copic Marker E29 Burnt Umber.


Once all of the die cuts were layered and added to the canvas then I added the embellishments.



I used Finesse Swirls Brown Rhinestones and 72 Count Sage Green Pearls from Want2Scrap® and also added some berries and a silk leaf.



For the card I used several of the same supplies as the canvas. I used S4-341 Wavy Rectangles to create a shape card. For the stamp set I used CR-02225 Autumn Words from JustRite.
