Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here with a new project to share. Winter has gone on far too long and I've started to create Spring projects. I have been having fun with Rinea Foils and this month I created an Easter project.
I painted the edges of my panel with Tattered Angels paint. Since Easter is all about bunnies and Easter eggs, I die cut the bunny from my Cricut Expression and just added a wiggly eye and fuzzy tail.
The Easter eggs were really fun to create. I used an Easter egg punch to punch the Easter eggs from assorted Embossed Foils - Blue, Purple and Hot Pink. I stamped assorted designs on Glossy Silver Foil and heat embossed them. Heat embossing turns out beautifully on the foils, just be careful not to overheat.
I created grass using the Glossy Green/Gold Foil. I simply cut a 1" strip of foil, cut into it randomly, then rolled the cut edges over giving the illusion of grass. I adhered this to the bottom of my panel, then I placed the eggs in the corner under the grass.
The base eggs were adhered to the panel using Beacon Adhesive. I placed foam adhesives under the top eggs for dimension. I also added several gems to the pink egg.
Happy Easter was die cut from Hot Pink Embossed Foil with Sizzix dies.
Rinea Foils can be easily die cut and punched. I have been able to punch 4 layers of foils and still have a perfect image. The cuts are always clean and crisp.
What do you think? Isn't this a sweet Easter project?
We have a guest designer with us today , Kymona. I met her at the AFCI convention and I knew she had to play with the Rinea foil to see what she could create with it, and she did an amazing job!! Here is a little bio and her beautiful picture!
Hello, I'm Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes...I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going. I was introduced to paper-crafting back in 1998 when my son was born. I started out as a hobbyist, but my passion pushed me into teaching paper-crafting classes at work and to those that wanted to learn.I love card-making, scrapbooking, DIY projects or better yet anything that has to do with paper.
Hello everyone!! Kymona from Kreative Kymona here for the first time as a guest designer!! I'm super excited to be here! I'm going to show you three clean and simple ways to use foil paper!
Lets get started!

Using Riena foil paper as the project, takes Rinea foil paper to the next level!
To create these baskets:
I love how the foil looks. So pretty and different then regular cardstock. Rinea Foil paper folds and rips just like paper but it is much prettier. Its a bit lighter then cardstock but heavy enough to create these baskets and hold these eggs without fear of ripping.
Easy and requires a bit more assembling but it's worth it.
So what do think? Will you give Riena Foil paper a try? I think you should. The possibilities are endless. Please let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Kymona Tracey specializes in paper crafting, knitting, and I'm slowing learning how to scrapbook using pocket pages which you will find on my blog Kreative Kymona. My style is clean and simple and I do all of my crafting at midnight. That's when my creative seems to spark.
