I’m thrilled to share S4-289 Wonky Squares with you. I created a layout of my dogs all dressed up for a night of Trick-or-Treating around the neighborhood :)
I started by using the S4-289 Wonky Squares die template to cut both the white and black mats to mount the photos on.
Using the S4-289 Wonky Squares die template to cut the photos, I recommend first positioning and adhering the die template in place, cut side down then form cutting sandwich as follows: 1. Master Mat 2. Magnetic Spacer Plate 3. Die template (cut side up) 4. Photo facing down 5. Master Mat.
After cutting, emboss photo using the following sandwich: 1. Master Mat 2. Die template (cut side up) 3. Photo 4. Tan Embossing Pad 5. Master Mat.
Feel free to click photo below to enlarge and see the embossed edges.
To make a S4-289 Wonky Squares embellishment, use a S4-289 Wonky Squares die template and cut a piece of patterned paper. Rub ink around edges then ink up a Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens stencil with Black Clearsnap Ink.
Place stencil where desired pressing firmly to apply ink.
To create the distressed metallic looking S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes, follow the previous mentioned cutting and embossing instructions using Royal & Langnickel: Silver Foil Engraving Art Blank Boards. To expose the underlying silver metal, use a fine sanding block to gently sand any unwanted black area.All you need are small dabs of Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry glue to secure the Graveyard scene in place and a few 3L SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES Black 3D Foam squares to adhere the other shapes in place.
For a little extra, I stitched and distressed the S7-018 Big Scalloped Border Grand as well as the other photos on the layout.
In the photo below, you will see all the die cuts I have used to create this layout.
Supplies: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-289 Wonky Squares, Shapeabilities® S4-279 Graveyard Scenes and Shapes, Borderabilities® S7-018 Big Scalloped Border Grand, Nestabilities S4-114 Standard Circles LG, S4-116 Standard Circles SM
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye: The Spider's Web, "Pumpkin Patch", "Witch's Lace", "Trick or Treat", Pink Paislee: Twilight Collections/Eclipse
Cardstock: Worldwin Papers: Canvas & Black
Adhesive: Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry glue, 3L SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES 3D foam squares
Stamps:
Pink Paislee: Twilight Collection
Ink: Clearsnap Black Colorbox Classic
Other:
Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens Garden Blossom Misting Tools Stencils, Royal & Lang Nickel: Silver Foil Engraving Art Blank Boards

There are so many various ways in which to use the Spellbinders™ S4-289 Wonky Squares die templates. I decorated an empty plastic box placing the S4-289 Wonky Squares with a slight rotation creating motion on the box front :)
