An Autumn Gift with Sizzix

Hello friends! Here's a tiny autumn caddy I made with Sizzix dies and my mixed media supplies.
 
 
For this project, I used:
DecoArt Media Gesso and Fluid Acrylic Paints
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle
Ranger Archival Ink pad Jet Black and Distress Ink pad Vintage Photo
Stampers Anonymous Stamp set Simple Sayings,
Others: adhesive, background stamp, cardstock, paint brush, palette knife, punchinella, stencil, tulle
 
Here are the steps: 
 
 
Cut chipboard to size. Lay chipboard on die blade side up. Place them on an extended cutting pad and lay the extended premium crease pad on top. Pass the sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine.

 
Apply a coat of gesso to the die cut chipboard pieces.


 
Color the pieces with Fluid Acrylic paints in your favorite autumn colors.

 
Add some pattern to the pieces using punchinella as stencil and fluid acrylic paint. 

 
Ink up a background stamp with Jet Black archival ink pad and stamp on the pieces.

 
Apply strips of double sided tape to the bottom piece following crease lines.

 
Assemble the caddy.

 
Add some texture and more pattern with stencil and texture paste with palette knife. Let dry.
 
 
Diecut a few Layered Leaves. Lay cardstock on die blade side up. Put them in between two standard cutting pads and pass the sandwich through the Big Shot Machine. Lay a die cut leaf inside the accompanying embossing folder and put the folder between two cutting pads. Put the sandwich on the embossing tab of the multipurpose platform and run through the Big Shot Machine. Repeat with all the leaves. Color the leaves with fluid acrylic paints. Accentuate the embossed details with Vintage Photo Distress Ink pad.

 
Arrange the leaves inside the caddy with foam tape or another dimensional adhesive.

 
 
Diecut an oval by laying cardstock on die blade side up. Put them in between two standard cutting pads and pass the sandwich through the Big Shot Machine. Stamp sentiment on it. Tuck it inside the caddy along with some tulle to finish.
