Hi everyone, it's a new year and time to create with new products. Have you had a chance to see Rinea Foils from Global Crafting? If you are at CHA this weekend, be sure to stop by their booth to say hi.
Rinea Foils embosses beautifully. I cut the foil into a 5" square, then using my Scor-Pal, I scored every 1/4". I rotated the foil and then scored again every 1/4". Then I angled the panel and scored from edge to edge.
I matted the scored panel with white cardstock and added it to the card. Using the stacked cups from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps, I colored them with Tombow Markers then die cut the image. After matting with cardstock, I adhered the panel to the card. I then stamped Thank You on a scrap of silver foil with black ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. The foil embossed beautifully.
Be sure to stop by the Rinea blog to see some amazing projects with Rinea Foils.
Hi everyone, with Valentine's Day coming up soon, it's time to create "Love"ly projects.
Nothing screams Valentine's Day like hearts. Using Spellbinders dies, I die cut a heart from white cardstock and inked it with Crafter's Ink. Usually I die cut wet clay, but today I die cut red Makin's® Clay which I had in my stash. The hearts were die cut and embossed with Spellbinders dies. I rolled out white Makin's Clay and cut letters to spell love using Makin's Clay Alphabet Cutters set.
I used Graphic 45 pattern paper for the card and matted it with green cardstock. Next, I tied ribbon around the panel before adhering it to the card. Twine was tied to the ribbon.
LOVE was adhered to the card with Beacon Adhesives.
Well, Christmas has come and gone and so has New Year's. It's 2017 already and I wanted to show you a New Year's project I created with Paverpol, Rinea Foils, Spellbinders, Tattered Angels glimmer mists.
Hi everyone, I'm just sending you a note today with a sweet and simple card.
I created a feather using Makin'sⓇ white clay and a ceramic feather for a mold. Look at all the details!
I painted the feather with yellow paint to coordinate with the card I created, then added some brown ink to age it a bit. Using Beacon Adhesives, I adhered the feather to a tag, then stamped a So Suzy sentiment beneath.
So tell me, do you still send hand written notes to family and friends or is everything electronic?
Happy New Year. I am thrilled to be working with Joy Clair for another terms. It's new release day at Joy Clair and the new stamps are amazing once again!! Today I am using the Treasures set. I love the sentiment so I used that as the inspiration for my card.
I created a 5 1/2" square gate fold card from black cardstock. On the front panel, I stamped an assortment of jewels in black ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder. After inking the panels, I matted them with red cardstock and added them to striped cardstock before adding them to the card.
I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock in black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. After die cutting the heart, I inked it with red ink, then added to a scalloped heart. I adhered the left side of the heart to the left panel creating a closure.
Inside, I stamped additional elements on white cardstock. I inked the panel then matted it with red cardstock. I also used striped paper for the base to coordinate with the front panels.

I love the beautiful colors and the substantial feel to this twine. This month I've created some bracelets that you can easily recreate with the kids. Or maybe you can make up a bunch and put them in Middy Bitty Bags for fun party favors. Who doesn't love giving a little "something" to party guests. And the girls will love making them and giving them!
Bracelets are fun to make and Whisker Graphics twine is the perfect starting point. Cut 3 strips about 12" long and tie them together, about 1" from one end. Tape the twine to the table because it's so much easier to work on the bracelet if it's stationery.
Braid down about an 1", then start adding beads to the center strand.
Braid between the beads to add some definition and keep the beads separated. Once you've added 7-8 beads, braid the twine another inch then tie the twine together to finish.
Use an assortment of twines to create some really fun bracelets. The twines add amazing visual interest and texture.
Wear them all together or separate - it's up to you.
For the party favors, I folded down the top edges of the bags, then tied them closed with white twine.
Finally I stamped the tags with Joy Clair stamps and used the same twine to tie them to the bags.
Just think how much fun you'll have making these with the girls. Just put out the twine and beads and let them decide what they want to make (and how many!!!!).
