Let's Celebrate National Craft Month - Blog Hop Party!!!

Come join the celebration...we're having a 


Here is my contribution showcasing Sin City Stamps. I hope you like my creation for the hop featuring Fairies & Blossoms 2. I created the wings by stamping onto transparency and adding some Stickles Glitter Glue. I applied Distress Ink (Barn Door) randomly to white cardstock. Then I embossed a demask design on it.  To add more contrast, I swiped the same pad of Distress Ink over the design to give the raised areas a darker shade of red. 

Giveaways: To be eligible to win, follow the Sin City Blog, then visit all the blogs participating.  Please leave a comment on the Sin City Blog and let them know about your blog travels and tell them about some of your favorite projects! Winners revealed May 10th.

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.

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!
