Rinea Foil Paper, Steampunk Style

Good evening! I have been having more fun playing around with Rinea Foil Paper and their new 2.0 Ghost Ink. (Lots of fun, trust me on that!) I was experimenting with 'steampunk' styles and ended up making a pair of cards that are perfect for a man's birthday.

I gave one of these to my Dad for his birthday.

I also used Sizzix dies and 3-D embossing folders, stamp sets from Tim Holtz and a Xyron machine to make these cards. Let's take a look:

Step 1 - I used my Xyron Creative Station to apply adhesive to the back of a piece of glossy black Rinea foil paper. Then I used a 3-D embossing folder (Mechanics) to emboss the gear design. (The foil paper embosses beautifully!)

Step 2 – Rinea Ghost Ink is formulated to remove the color from the foil paper to reveal the silver metal base. You can stamp with the Ink pad and in this case I used just the reinker bottle for this technique.

I put a drop of ink on my craft sheet and used a make up wedge sponge to lightly brush it on the raised portions of the embossed foil. It started to take off the color right away. I buffed off the rest of the ink with a paper towel or rag and it really removed the color. Easy peasy!

I tried it with other folders and colors of foil paper.

I ended up not using this one for a card.

These are the two background I used, on brown and black foil. Having the Xyron adhesive on the back made it really easy to attach them to the card base. I layered diecuts and fussy cut stamped images on the top to complete the card. It's a quick and easy technique that looks really cool!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend. ;-)
