Today I am using Spellbinders S4-294 Beaded Ovals die template
Here is a video tutorial on how to cut and emboss with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur
For today’s project, I also used products from the Rusted Sun Collection from Fancy Pants, and a new set of stamps from Gina K, called, Winter Mittens. I thought all together they would make a darling mitten hanger for an entryway! (This project measures 9x12”.)
I die cut/embossed three Beaded Ovals from cardstock. Then distressing ink was applied over the top, to bring out the embossing. I used the same ink to stamp the snowflakes both on the ovals and the patterned paper.
By adding the snowflakes and the distressing ink, I was able to take a summer collection of patterned papers and turn them into something wintery! How great to get extra mileage out of your papers with that easy technique!
Here is another look at the ovals, this one with the clothespin.
A little look at the stamped pair of mittens that I attached to the clothespins. Let’s face it, I just wasn’t quite ready to hang “real” mittens. And, if you live somewhere you don’t need mittens, then these stamped ones are perfect! :)
