Our design team has amazing projects that never cease to amaze me on how they can use the same papers to create beautiful projects. Here is a few of the wonderful things they created using the same foils all with a mixed media or winter theme.
First we have Linda with an amazing Snowflake card.
Linda says, Using Spellbinders dies to cut the Rinea embossed foils – Blue, Light Blue and Silver. I made this beautiful but simple greeting card. This paper cuts easily with die cutting tools. Check out her blog post here - http://lindaisrael.com/2017/01/01/make-let-snow-greeting-card/

Now we have Alpna with a cute little card using the the Rinea foil as a background paper, the foil as act like regular paper too!!
Alpna here and today I'm going to share an interesting idea to make your banners with Rinea Foils. These foils are so versatile that you can die cut in cutting machines like Big Shot, Cricut, etc. You can easily punch these foils and every time you get a crisp and sharp punch. The possibilities are endless.
I decided to cut the letters in Cricut Exlore so I opened my software and write "BUY HANDMADE" and kept the font Arial Black as I wanted my letters bold. Then I took silver embossed Rinea foil and stuck to a very less sticky mat. I adjusted my cutting pressure on paper which gave me the perfect cut.
For the banner backing I took red card stock and spellbinders dies and ran through my Big Shot. Now my backing and letters are ready. I stuck the letters on square backing and stuck blue ribbon too.
Now to give the banner that little bit of extra sparkle I took blue embossed Rinea foil and snowflake punch. I punched several snowflakes and glued two flakes one on another to give a flower look and finally glued the middle stone to add the beauty.
I glued the little flowers to the banner and now it is ready to hang in my studio.
Here is the complete list of supplies:
Silver Embossed Rinea Foil
Blue Embossed Rinea Foil
Cricut Explore Air Machine
Big Shot Machine
Glue, Scissors, Crafting Mat
Linda is on the blog today bring some winter snowflakes to those that do not have snow. We just love the colors of silver and blue together and the Rinea foil just make them sparkle even more!
We are in full swing of winter here in Oklahoma. For many in the country it means lots of snow. In Oklahoma we get cold temperatures and occasional freezing rain and if we are lucky snow. Today I decided that I was Bringing Snowflakes Inside.
Since we don’t get much snow I decided that my project would be a little mini canvas filled with Rinea foil snowflakes.
Using embossed blue, light blue and silver Rinea foil, die cut with Spellbinders snowflakes. It is best to die cut one layer of paper at a time. If you try to die cut multiple layers at once the papers will stick together and you will spend a lot of time trying to separate them, trust me I know. There was an unknown brand snowflake punch in my stash used as well.
The mini canvas is 3 by 3 inches in size and came painted black. Unsure how much of the canvas background would show I decided to stamp a few Brutus Monroe Snowflakes from Oh Deer and Holiday Sentiments in Alabaster Pigment Ink. Then went around the edges of the canvas with the same ink pad.
Sprayed True Turquoise and Sapphire Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist over the canvas and used heat tool to dry. The canvas was still sticky from the Pigment ink so I used fine glitter all over the sticky spots.
The die cut and punched snowflakes were adhered to the canvas using Adhesive Tech glue. Self adhesive rhinestones were placed in the centers of the snowflakes. But when looking at the mini canvas I decided it needed more Glitter! Using a small flat paint brush I applied glue in a few areas and then sprinkled glitter.
Video of the whole process.
This mini canvas was then placed on a small easel to be admired. Bringing Snowflakes Inside this winter is much more fun when you don’t have to go outside and brave the cold. Instead you can enjoy the comforts of your home and play with Rinea foil and make snowflakes. That is so much more fun!

Monica is up on the blog today with a beautiful banner to help decorate her craft space. She uses the foil to help make everything just sparkle and shine!!
Thank you ladies for joining me for another Rinea Design Team Project.
If there is one thing I love to do its to decorate my craft space with beautiful inspiring work to help spark my creativity.
So that's exactly what I did! For my project I created a winter theme banner.
I have a full tutorial video on how I made and decorated my banner.
I used the amazing Rinea embossed foil paper in the color light blue, blue, copper and gold in both the embossed and plain foils. I just love creating projects with this foil paper because it gives every project that pop of color that you just can't miss, all while giving the banner an elegant look.
As always I had so much fun creating with these beautiful paper and I hope to see you on my next project!
Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a snowman canvas using Rinea Foils in a variety of ways.
Rinea Foils - Glossy Silver Foil; Embossed-Blue, Light Blue
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Joy Clair Stamps
EK Success Punches
Whisker Graphics Twine
I began by spritzing a canvas panel with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Once dry, I stamped an assortment of snowflakes from Joy Clair Stamps about the panel.
Next, I used my Cricut Expression to die cut a snowman from Glossy Silver Foil. I used a pressure setting of medium and a cutting speed of high. Other than the tiny edges of the scarf, the foil cut beautifully. Plus, I used an older mat that was not too sticky. The foils easily came off the mat. I find that a mat that is too sticky does not allow the foils to be easily released.
I die cut a snowman from black cardstock to use as the base, then adhered the silver foil pieces on top. To finish I also die cut a blue hat and scarf.
Using a border punch, I punched 2 layers of "snow drips" from 2 colors of Embossed Blue and Embossed Light Blue Foils. After adhering the Blue Foil to the canvas, I used foam adhesives to adhere the Light Blue Foil on top. The foil cut easily with the intricate punch!
Next, I used a smaller punch and die cut snowflakes from the Glossy Silver Foil. Again, the foil cut easily and without a problem. Finally, I die cut winter using Sizzix dies with the Blue Foil. Again, I had absolutely no issues die cutting. I even die cut additional dots from the "i" to use as the snowman's buttons.
To finish I punched two holes in the top and added twine for the hanger.
I used an assortment of tools with these foils and love how they all worked with the foils.
Thanks for stopping by today.
