Creating with Rinea Foil

Hello and welcome to the April Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop!

This month we are partnering with Rinea Foil and I designed this sweet, vintage mini book using die cutting techniques to add foiled accents!

I received the Pastels Foil Variety Pack which contains some really pretty spring colors in both the glossy and embossed starstruck finish.

Disclosure:  I receive compensation in the form of free product and/or pay from companies and manufacturers in return for creating projects showcasing those products.  While the content of my blog is influenced by these products, my opinions regarding these products and projects are my own. 

What makes this product special is that each piece is actually 3 layers:  a paper layer sandwiched between 2 colorful pieces of aluminum foil.  This gives the material a paper like sturdiness with the malleability of foil!  It is ideal for making 3-D objects and is great for embossing and die cutting.

I started by creating a little book with Eileen Hull's new Notebook die and paper from Stamperia.  Very sweet, right?
                                          


Time to add a little pizazz with Rinea Foil!  

My technique of choice today is die cutting. I want to adhere those die cuts quickly and easily so I backed the Starstruck Turquoise foil with double sided adhesive. This turns all of my die cuts into stickers!


I started die cutting tiny stars and sprinkled them down the cover to accentuate the stars printed on the paper.


Next I used a 3-D Impresslit Folder, which die cuts and embosses at the same time.  After peeling off the release paper I adhered it to the spine of my little fairy notebook.


I had a couple of signatures for the inside of my Notebook that needed a little "something".  Rinea to the rescue!  Using more of the Starstruck Turquoise foil I die cut a single butterfly.


I separated all of the elements, then used the same butterfly die to emboss watercolor paper.  I carefully adhered each tiny piece from the die cut into place on the front of my signature.


I used inks to create a background, a black pen to define the butterfly, and a stamped sentiment to fit my theme. Done!
.

Moving on, I applied the die cut butterfly to the front of the second signature. I used a sanding block and very lightly scuffed up the foil before I inked over it to coordinate with the aged appearance of the cover...


...and finished off with a stamped sentiment!


Here's another quick look at the cover...


...and the signatures.
