Valentine's Day Card - Foil, glitter & shine

Hello crafty friends,
Bringing you some inspiration on quick cards you can make for that special person(s) in your life.  the beautiful foiled papers from Rinea plus some glitter gel really complement each other.  I am sharing tips on how to efficiently apply glitter gel and clean it up in the video.
Here's another view of the card to give you a better angle to see the glitter gel on the card.  Please note that some, but not all the dies used on this project are available as of the date this post went live.  I am still going to include links to those that are at the end of this post.

The dies I used to spell out "love" are from a discontinued set called "Love You So" by Concord and 9th.  However, there are certainly other die sets out there that could be substituted.  I'll show some options for you at the end still for sale.
I just love the combination of red and gold and how elegant they look together.
I created a video to show the process from start to end - I hope you will find my tips helpful too.

Valentine's Day card collector box for kids

Hello crafty friends,
I'm sharing this Valentine's Day project on the Rinea blog and YouTube channel.  This brings back such nostalgia and sweet memories from when I was in grade school and collecting cards from my classmates in school.
Here's the video showing how I put this together:

Winter card challenge - Dare 2B Artzy

Hello crafty friends,

Today Dare 2B Artzy has a new monthly challenge open - the theme is winter and here is the card I made.  The background die is one of the most useful ones I have and I think it's one I will keep around for as long as I am making cards.  I put some glitter paper behind it to add some texture and sparkle.


New Year's Sign with Rinea

Hello crafty friends,

After weeks of creating Christmas cards, it's time to start thinking about the new year!  I was thinking of New Year's Eve celebrations and how fun it would be to create a sign to use as a photo prop at a party.  Both sides are decorated and I have a video to show the process in action.


Easy Poinsettia card with Rinea foiled paper

Hello crafty friends,
Sometimes I crave a card with a large focal point, so that it makes the cardmaking faster but still with stunning results.  This project is also featured on the Rinea blog here. The die set I used is a Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia Bigz die with a coordinating embossing folder.  This is a classic die that creates a 3D flower in a couple of steps.

Christmas Card with Rinea Foiled Paper

The die cuts 3 sizes of flower petal sets.  I cut 3 from Ruby/Gold Glossy foiled paper and only the largest set from Emerald/Gold Glossy foiled paper.  I ran the red sets through the coordinating embossing folder to give the petals the veined appearance.  With the green layer, I only used hand pressure to give it some veining.  
I also created a thin frame using two nesting rectangle dies from the Hero Arts infinity nesting die set from the Ruby/Gold flossy foiled paper.  I die cut the sentiment from the same paper using an Impression Obsession die.  since the poinsettia is a large focal point, I intentionally chose a more delicate die.

Favorite tip:  Use Press N Seal to pick up the frame and sentiment after placing it on the card front, flip it over and apply adhesive to the frame.  This makes it so much easier to apply a very delicate die cut.




Now the only thing left is to glue the petal and leaf layers together to form the complete flower.  I used gold Nuvo drops to create the flower center.  The die does include a piece to create a center - this is just a personal preference thing.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Below is the shopping list if you'd like to use the same dies and foiled papers on a similar project.
