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/
Another fun winter project is from Karen, She even stamps of the Rinea foil!!
Here is the foil after it has been embossed with white & silver glitter snowflakes. Notice, that I inked the edges with Platinum Planet ink to create a frosty finish.

Karen has created a beautiful winter wonderland of snowflakes using Rinea foils. The shimmer and shine almost better than the real thing!
When you need a project for a cold wet winter day, this is a great family activity you can get the kids involved with. You don't need many supplies to make these gorgeous hanging snowflake decorations. Rinea paper foils fold and crease wonderfully and easily hold their shape. Try alternating colors of foil for a fun twist. Then display the finished snowflakes hanging in the window for an elegant Winter accent.
Crafters Glossy Pack: Rinea Paper-Foil 10-Pack 15 cm x 25 cm (Silver)
Crafters Embossed Pack: Rinea Paper-Foil 10-Pack 23 cm x 33 cm (Blue & Lt. Blue)
Other Supplies: scissors, ruler, double sided tape, needle, thread
1. Trim six paper foil squares 4x4". Six squares are needed to complete each snowflake.
(TIP: To form a square, fold a rectangle into a triangle by taking a corner and folding at a diagonal. Trim the overhanging paper outside the triangle. Have fun experimenting with different color paper foils in different sizes to create your hanging dimensional snowflakes.)
Paper foil square dimensions: Large 4x4" - finished size 10"
Medium 3x3" - finished size 7.25"
Small 2x2" - finished size 4.5"
2. Fold the square in half to form a triangle. Next, fold it in half again to form a triangle. With the creased side closest to you, cut 3 straight slits parallel to the longest side. Start cutting at the creased edge and stop cutting 1/4" from the edge.
3. Completely unfold the triangle to reveal the sliced square rows. Begin at the innermost point of the square and roll the two inner points inward. Apply double sided tape, align the overlapping points, and adhere them.
4. Flip the snowflake segment over and take the next larger row of slits, overlap their points, and adhere them together. Continue this process by flipping over the segment and forming rolls until all the rows of slits are rolled inwards and glued together making sure to alternate sides with every new row. Repeat rolling and adhering the slits for all six squares of foil paper.
5. Align the 6 individual segments facing the same direction. Begin to attach the points together with double sided tape. (TIP: Staple the snowflakes together when you are making large square segments that are over 8")
6. Next, connect each snowflake segment on the outermost roll with the adjacent segment to add stability.
7. To display the snowflakes, use a needle to pierce the foil paper at one point and attach a loop of thread.
(TIP: The larger the square of paper foil that is cut, the easier it is to assemble the snowflakes. To avoid frustration & disappointment don't begin with a small 2" square.)

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.
