Rinea Paper-Foil Spring Card
by Sue McRae


Hello and welcome to another day of showcasing Rinea products with Poppystamps dies and stamps! Rinea makes pretty paper-foil that comes in solid colour packs, double-sided colour packs and embossed colour packs. You can find all their foil products here.


For my card I used the Grand Watering Can as the focal image and die cut it from blue embossed paper-foil. I wanted to age the watering can so I distressed it a bit with sandpaper to take off some of the blue colour and let the silver colour underneath come through.


I took a bunch of Poppystamps flower, leaf and berry dies, cutting them from a variety of embossed and solid colour paper-foil and made a little arrangement in the watering can. The foil is sturdy enough to die cut easily but it can be molded and shaped to give added dimension.


I added the picket fence behind the watering can, die cut green paper-foil for the grassy hill and added a sentiment.


Stop by the Rinea blog here to see what their designers are creating during this collaboration!

Wishing everyone a happy day!

Hi! It's Mona here today with a card to share featuring a beautiful layered Powell Butterfly.

To create this card, I made a layered Powell Butterfly which I then embellished with a layered metallic Stitched Bloom using the smallest of the three Stitched Bloom Trio dies. I added trimming that was made using two of the three pretty Eyelet Stitches dies.  I completed the card with a metallic Scribble Hello sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Butterfly Gift Card Holder Tags

There comes a day in every craftsperson's life when you realize you've got to do something with all those scraps you have, but you are terrified by the thought of throwing them away. So today is this kind of day to me!

I have chosen to make some tags to utilize some of the card stock scraps. The tag pockets are just the right size to put a gift card into.

Here are some photos of the tags as well as the VIDEO TUTORIAL on how to make them:

Golden Leaves
by Olga Direktorenko

Hi crafty friends, 

The fall is just starting so let's welcome the season with a gold leaf card! 

I have chosen some lacy dies to make it look light and airy and also did some stamping with real leaves to get skeleton imprints. 

I am including a VIDEO TUTORIAL where I show the whole process.







Thanks so much for visiting today and have a very happy fall!
