DIY Giant Dice Games with Rinea

Hello crafty friends!



Today I have for you another red, white & blue patriotic project using Rinea Foiled Paper - a Dice Game with TWO OPTIONS to play!

OPTION 1 - Adults Only Drinking Game
OPTION 2 - Exercise HIIT Workout

Now - I will start with a disclaimer to please drink responsibly and most importantly, NEVER drink and drive.  

Not into drinking games? Use it to do a HIIT Workout!

Keep on reading to see how it will work.

I used the Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper, the BRAND NEW Cobalt/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and the Arctic Starstruck Foiled Paper for this project. You will also need a 3" cube (I had one in my stash, but you would use a small gift box or something similar) and glue.

Step 1 - cut your foiled paper!
I simply cut 3"x 3" squares of each of the three colors.

  

Step 2 - adhere to your cube!
I used some Tombow Adhesive to glue my Rinea papers to the cube sides. Make sure to glue as close the edge as possible so it doesn't start peeling.

   

Step 3 - add your numbers!
I used a 1" Circle punch to cut dots from my scrap foiled paper to make the numbers. The appropriate number of dots were added to each side of the giant dice to add the number 1 through 6.

 


Step 4 - play your game!
Ok!  Now you are ready to play. So here are the rules: for the DRINKING GAME:

Roll a 1 - YOU take a drink
Roll a 2 - the person to your RIGHT will take a drink
Roll a 3 - you GIVE a drink to a person of your choice
Roll a 4 - the person to your LEFT will take a drink
Roll a 5 - EVERYONE drinks
Roll a 6 - YOU drink twice

Not into drinking? Here is an EXERCISE alternative! 
Do each exercise for 1 minute, then roll again!  Do that 30 times and you have a 30 minute workout!

Roll a 1 - run in place
Roll a 2 - push-ups
Roll a 3 - jumping jacks
Roll a 4 - squats
Roll a 5 - crunches
Roll a 6 - burpees

I hope you have fun with whatever option you choose!

Patriotic Pinwheels with Rinea

Hello crafty friends!


I hope you are enjoying your quarantine downtime - I actually have enjoyed it a lot! I'm making some changes, letting go of some activities and really honing in on what I LOVE to do - which is mainly crafts, Cosmetology, Zumba and cooking!

Today I have for you a simple, fun for kids project to celebrate the 4th of July (or even Canada Day!) using Rinea Foiled Paper - pinwheels!

You don't need a ton of supplies for this project either - scissors, a ruler, some brads, pencils (or skewers), some hot glue....and of course, your RINEA Foiled Paper!  No special cutting equipment needed at all.

I used the Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper, the BRAND NEW Cobalt/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and the Arctic Starstruck Foiled Paper for these pinwheels.

Step One:
Cut your squares! I used 3x3, 4x4 and 6x6 sizes to make these pinwheels.

Step Two:
Measure out the center using a ruler and draw a line from each cornder towards center up to about 1" from the middle.

  

Step 3:
Cut along the lines!


Step 4:
Fold every other corner in towards the middle and secure with a brad.

  

Step 5:
Adhere to a stick of choice using hot glue. I used leftover school supply pencils and skewers - I really wanted to upcycle what I had on hand!  Now, if you would like these pinwheels to actually spin, you can use a thumbtack or pushpin and push into the eraser of the pencil (just make sure to trim the back of the pin off so it isn't sharp and sticking out of the back!).

  

Step 6: (optional!)
Add some fun ribbon!


There you have it! Simple, patriotic pinwheels! You could use them to decorate your 4th of July partyscape, tuck one onto a birthday present as a bow (don't use the stick!), or just put them in your flowerbed for your party!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #347 - Friendship

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #347. Our theme this week is "Friendship" and our sponsor is "The Artsy Stamper". 

I chose to work with a stamp set called “Koi Pond”. I’m very lucky to have a rubber version of this stamp in my stash from (the now retired) SparkleNSprinkle, but you can still grab the digital version here.

Here is what I created:


I love simple cards that yield stunning results. I did a quick watercolor “smoosh” background on watercolor paper, then let dry. Once it was dry, I stamped my images. To do this with the digital version, you would print your images first, the do the smooshed background. Easy peasy! I also added a quick shot of shimmer spray.

I hope to see you at the challenge. Challenges are a great way to bust out of a creative funk - or just to have fun and maybe win a prize or two!

Until next time,

Jess

Greenhouse Fun with Rinea Foiled Paper & Poppystamps

Good morning crafty friends!


I hope you are all doing fantastic today. I am very excited to share a new card with you today featuring  Rinea products along with Poppystamps!  I am once again using the Greenhouse Potted Plants die and we will be doing a bit of paper piecing today.  First up, supplies! 



Supply List:

Tombow Glue

Big Shot or other die cutting machine

Let's have some fun! You will start by diecutting all of your pieces. I used the Mocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper for the base frame and also cut it out a second time using Copper/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. For the leaves, I used Jade/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper, the birds came from Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.

 



I used the Copper/Gold Glossy foiled paper as my base and added a layer of our BRAND NEW Arctic Starstruck Foiled Paper. You are going to LOVE it - it's so pretty.

Next, I used the Tombow Glue to add my base frame to the Arctic Starstruck layer. Once that dried, I trimmed out some of copper pots to layer over some of the Mocha pots and glued them down.

The rest of the bits and pieces were just glued down as I built my scene. It was a fun project!



Finally, I stamped my sentiment with Ghost Ink onto a piece of Copper/Gold Foiled Paper that was trimmed to fit inside the frame. Once it dried for about 30 seconds, I simply wiped off the ink and like magic, my sentiment appeared! Ghost Ink is just so neat! You definitely need to pick some up if you haven't already.

You can really see the Arctic Starstruck Foiled Paper here!!

Creative Knockouts Challenge #343 - Anything Goes

Hello crafty friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts Challenge #343. Our theme this week is "Anything Goes” and our sponsor is the amazing “Fabrika Fantasy". I actually decided to make two cards because I was having fun!  I'm using the "Fairy-Tale Unicorn" stamp this week. So classic! Everyone needs a cute unicorn stamp, right?

I used the image and resized it a bunch of times to create a background paper and then printed a full sized unicorn for the focal image! So cute!  I wanted fun and cheerful during this time of social distancing. It sure is a crazy world right now, isn't it?


Here is what I created:




I hope to see you at the challenge! :)

Until next time,

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #361

Hello friends!



Party time!  This card is so fun and festive!  How cute is that pompom trim? A quick hint when adding some pompoms - I attach the trim at the back of the card front, but then I trim off the pompom part so it still lays flat! I'm almost done with my Summer SCT Sampler - it's crazy how many cards you can create from them. 


I've been playing along with the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for years now and every week I'm inspired to create!  This week my cards are based on the following sketch:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #360

Hello friends!



Okay - I don't often play favorites, but THIS card right here is probably one of my most favorites that I have made in a long time!  I don't know if it's the leaves or the color combo - or the fact that it's so summery and light - but I just LOVE it!!! It's still out of my SCT Sampler Stashbuster project - so I can't even remember who made the paper line! But I adore it! The cardstock is Blushing Bride from Stampin' Up! - that I know for sure. Some CTMH Gold Shimmer Trim and Gold Gems were the perfect accents too.

Happy Birthday Dude with Rinea

Hello crafty friends!


I have a fun new card to share with you today using Rinea products - this one is more on the masculine side! We are still working with our Creative Embellishment products, and I'm using some Brick Pieces Chipboard & 80's Slang Words on this card.


Supply List:





Sandpaper

Cardstock

Stamps

Thick Embossing Powder

Versamark Ink

This card will come together quickly for you!  I promise :)

Start with a piece of Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper that is appox 4" by 5.25" as your background. Adhere the Brick Chipboard to the background in the location you want. I sprinkled some super thick embossing powder on the pieces and heat set for some extra dimension.

  


My Ruby/Gold Glossy piece came next. It's cut approx 1/4" smaller than the Ebony Starstruck. I carefully noted the position where the chipboard elements were added and made a slit in the Foiled Paper before adhering around the edges. Once it was adhered, I simply started tearing, sanding and distressing the Foiled Paper until the chipboard was exposed and I had the desired effect.

  

Next up was the DUDE Chipboard! I covered the piece with Versamark Ink and sprinkled on my Super Thick Embossing Powder - then heat set! Pretty quick and simple technique here.

 

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto the Mocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using Ghost Ink, let it dry for a few seconds, then wiped off the ink. Voila! Sentiment exposed perfectly. (If you want to learn more about the Ghost Ink, please check out my post HERE).

 

Finally, I glued down the DUDE, adhered my sentient with foam squares and mounted the entire panel onto my cardbase.

  



Thanks for stopping by! I had a ton of fun making this card - and I know you will too!
