Bun Intended ATC Set

I have always had a thing for creating hair in art. I like to shade it, color it, high light it and glitter it up. That probably is why I am obsessed with these Bun images from Ink Road Stamps. So far there are four available.

I created two different kinds of backgrounds for these four ATCs. The first two are created with Colorburst.

The last two I created using Colorburst and alcohol ink on Rinea Foiled Paper. I don’t know what have me the idea to try these two mediums together — much less on Rinea foiled paper. I am glad I did because it turned out amazing!

I have a video tutorial on how to color in these images here. The cute little bows are actually wee little resin pieces from The Ink Road Stamps. I thought they were perfect as embellishments for the buns.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Have You Tried Foil Paper?

I first discovered foiled paper while living in Germany. I thought it was over priced wrapping paper because it looked like it on rolls at the market. I soon learned that it is what they use to make the traditional German stars at Christmas to hang on their trees.

Upon returning to the United States I forgot about the paper and the tradition. That all changed at Creativation 2017 when I was introduced to the owners of Rinea Foiled Paper. After growing up in Germany making these stars with the nuns and moving back to the states, Diane (one of the owners) decided to bring the paper to America. I have been on the design team ever since meeting her in 2017! It is one of the only ones I serve on now because I am passionate about the paper and the history behind it.

Here are a few things I have created the last few months with the paper.

Resin Pendant

I used Mocha Starstruck as a base and poured resin that I had added alcohol ink to create this pendant.

Shakers

Rinea Foiled Paper is also wonderful as shaker bits! I like to take my scraps and use them inside shakers.

Delicate Floral Frames

Foiled paper is my favorite substrate to use with my delicate dies. The secret is to use two sheets. It allows the die to cut cleaner and not get stuck in the metal.

Fairy Tags

This is my favorite recent creations with Rinea Foiled Paper. I used Colorburst for the background and layered the fairies on top of the tags with a sentiment and gems. The delicate (and sometimes tiny wings) were perfect with Rinea by Poppy Stamps https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=1465949&u=1740744&m=93612&urllink=&afftrack=.

A Few Videos

Finally, here are a few video tutorials I created for the Rinea channel.

A new player in the craft industry is Rinea Foiled Paper. I discovered this small business about three years ago and have been hooked ever sense! As a design team member I have played with this paper a lot. This year I have done videos for their channel and wanted to share a few with you.

Distress It with Alcohol Ink

This is my favorite substrate to use alcohol ink on. It creates the most amazing distressed look.

Make Flowers!

My favorite 3D embellishment to make with Rinea Foiled Paper are flowers!

Rinea Foiled Paper die cuts beautifully!

Lots of people don’t know you can ink on it too!
