Slimline Friendship Card

Friendship Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a slimline friendship card. I started with an 8.5" x 3.5" card base and using three different green inks and blended them to create an ombre effect from lightest to darkest. Then using another white piece of cardstock cut to 8.25" x 3.25" I cut out 3 squares using the Memory Box Square Basic Die Set and then adhered it to the front of the card base.
Then using some Rinea Foiled Paper in Emerald Glossy I die cut out the Berry Square Frame and adhered it to the square cutout I did in the white cardstock. I did the same for all the following dies.

Springtime Greetings using Rinea foil
by Tina Wilstrup


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!

Hello! Nadine here today sharing a simple thank you card that I made.  I used the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die to cut several frames out of the Rinea Blush Foiled Paper. I used the Garden Poppy Stitched Frame.

Spring Pinwheels
by Jennifer Svare

Foil Pinwheel 2

Hello!  It's great to be back on the Poppystamps team, and just in time for this fun collaboration with Rinea!  I would like to demonstrate how these beautiful foiled papers are double-sided, and perfect for making pinwheels!  


If you've never made pinwheels, the first thing to know is they are super simple, and don't take much paper or foil.  Each pinwheel only takes 4 small squares measuring 1-3/8".  Check out the video below for how I made these.  


Because Rinea's foils are double-sided, it looks like a lot more paper was used; for example, the solid foils have colors on one side with gold on the other.  When folded, it shows both sides and colors! The card below is 8-1/2" x 3/5".


Once the pinwheels were assembled, I used the flowers from the Floral Cluster to create gold foiled blooms for the centers.  Each flower center was embellished with a dot of matching Fairy Sugar glitter glue.  The colors matched perfectly and the dots look and sparkle like a crystal! The card below has the Pintpoint Rings craft die as a subtle background behind each pinwheel.   


For my next card, I chose the Butterfly Symphony as the background, and love how there is so much movement in the "whirl" surrounding the butterflies - almost like a breeze that is spinning the pinwheel.  I also added in a section from the Hill and Valley Grass, and a thin strip created the stick for the pinwheel to be hidden behind the grass.  


Everything was kept white except for the pinwheel and the foil behind the butterflies.  I used small scraps to cut just the butterflies out of various colors, and inlaid them before gluing the butterflies into place.  This way, the wings can sit up off the page, and there is a splash of color that shows through underneath.


These go together really quickly, and I had to much fun making several today. The foils work beautifully in many creative ways - thank you for stopping by today!

Now is your time to Bloom.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, I know we are all having a tough time with this virus, seems like it will never end! I hope you are all well and staying safe. What would we do with our crafts to occupier our hands and minds. with that thought, I`m sharing a card ..I think the theme on this card could be either a Male or Female! do you agree.


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.



I cut the foil with Poppystamps "Grand Watering Can" left the die in place and used a permanent marker to add black details .

 Die removed showing the black details.


The wheel of the "Country Garden Barrow" cut with the same foil and added some black pen to this.  The card base..I have shaded with a light blue ink..My "Hills and Valley Grass Border" cut in green card, Picket fence white card, brown for the Wheel barrow , this I have filled with Poppystamps "Dandelion Stem flowers cut up and  Garden Leaves..finished with Whittle Birds/clouds.. finishing touch I used Glossy accents to create water coming out of the can. Sentiment from Birch Press Designs. " Spring Time Fun".

I hope you'll give Rinea foil a try! It's really like no other foil I've ever used and really wonderful for 3D projects..


Thank you for stopping by and stay safe everyone..Pam x
