Hello everyone! These are troubled times, but I hope you're finding time to enjoy the little things. Like spring, warmer weather, flowers blooming and the abundance of colors in them.

This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together. Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects. The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base. This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet. Additionally this gives it the ability to hold it's shape making it perfect for dimensional flowers.

By now you must know that I'm more of a "go all in"-type rather than cas, so I used dies from the spring release to cut lots of foil in lots of gorgoeus spring colors.

The base for the Butterfly symphony and barrow-part are white cardstock. Everything else is foil. I used a smooth gold foil to back the base.

I gave the wheelbarrow a quick coloring with Copics. Of course I stamped the sentiment first, so I had to be careful since I hadn't used a Copic-safe ink. Again I used smooth foil for the wheel and flower clusters. I actually cut the blue one in half because I wanted it spread out more and also to give room for the butterflies. Since I placed the blue ones at the back it doesn't show at all.

The flowers (as well as hedgehogs and butterflies), however, I cut from textured foil just to spice things up.

After adhering the wheelbarrow to the base I added the extra flowers and 2 hedgehogs. See how Mrs. hog has a flower behind her ear while Mr. hog is fetching her a butterfly?

You'll notice the hedgehogs are mirrored and I simply just used one front and one back, since the textured foils are textured on both sides.

Just look at how well these foils hold themselves up. Love that!

I was so happy to work with these foils, and I do hope you'll give them a try. You'll love the smooth and textured foils and all the beautiful colors they come in.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you'll leave me a reply. I love reading them. Stay safe!

Hedgehogs are always cute.

Hi Tina, Truly beautiful, I love all the die-cuts, I love all the Rinea foil die-cuts, and I am a definite 'more is more' girl rather a CAS girl.
Stay safe, stay well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Beautiful springtime card, love the coloring of the wheel barrow!
