How to Color Rinea Double Sided Foiled Paper

Hey Girls,
If you like getting a bit messy, then today's post is for you.  The smooth & glossy nature of Rinea's foil paper make it a perfect match to be used with Alcohol Inks. I began by creating a simple rainbow stripe with a beautiful result. As my friend always says, have a play with the products, experiment, and "go for it!"

Rainbow Daisy Embossed Foil Birthday Card: 
  
Directions:1. Place a piece of silver foil into an embossing folder and run it through a die cutting machine.


2.  Use Alcohol Inks on a felt ink tool to apply one color to the embossed silver paper. Begin in the upper left corner applying red. Use a tapping motion rather than a rubbing motion to apply the Alcohol Inks. Continue adding colors to create a diagonal rainbow. Add red, orange, green, teal, blue, & purple.








3.  Attach the colored foil to a black cardbase leaving a narrow black border.
4.  Stamp a birthday greeting with black ink onto white cardstock, apply black embossing powder, and heat set. Adhere it to the upper left corner with dimensional foam tape.
5.  Finally, embellish the center of the flowers with corresponding Dew Drop Gems.

Wedding Favor Gift Box Video - The Robin's Nest

Hello Girls,
Friendship Wraps are cute chipboard containers exclusive to The Robin's Nest. They are perfect as wedding favors or to hold any small gift. They come flat in solid colors for you to decorate, personalize in your own style, and assemble. I chose an aqua box to embellish as a wedding favor or bridal party gift. The thick chipboard is sturdy and easy to decorate and the containers are simple to assemble.
You can find the step by step video to make this favor box HERE.

I think once you decorate one, you will be eager to try all the different styles. Friendship Wraps are perfect to have in your stash for that last minute thank you gift that you can customize for the recipient. Even when all you have time to do is buy a gift card, the packaging can still be fabulous!

Robin's Nest Supplies: Tower Teal Friendship Wrap, Iridescent Classic Glitter Swirl Vellum, Azure Ribbon, Wedding Die Cuts, Azure Flower Die Cuts, Silver Bells Dew Drops, Hearts Dew Drops

Metallic Steampunk Bird & Clocks - Sin City Design Team

Hello Stamping Friends,
Today I brought a card done totally in metallic gold-silver-copper and black. It is without my typical palette of happy colors. I was so excited to find the set with a Steampunk Bird because I was waiting to try this grunge style. The bird is made of a collection of gears and so I knew it would look fantastic combined with clocks.   My card is super industrial and very masculine which is not my usual style but I really like how it came out.  Let me show you how I did it.
The complete instructions can be found HERE.

Supplies:
gold card base 5x7"
silver paper foil
gear embossing folder
