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.
