How to Use Rinea Foil and Memento Inks on a Scrapbook Layout

Create amazing elements for your scrapbook layout using the range of Rinea foils, Memento inks, and a layered stencil set. Combined with inked backgrounds you can create a feast of color and shine.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 45 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Blend Toffee Crunch Memento ink through the first layer of a stencil set onto smooth white cardstock.


Step 2

Then blend Peanut Brittle Memento Luxe through the second layer of the stencil to bring out some more of the details.


Step 3

Add more highlights by blending in certain areas using Memento Peanut Brittle. Layering a dye on top of a pigment ink creates beautiful results.


Step 4

Remove the stencil to reveal the blended background. And repeat with different color hues to create more variety. I repeated this process with pink.


Step 5

Die-cut the stenciled background using a die-cut machine or hand-cut some letters.


Step 6

Back a sheet of Rinea foil with double-sided tape. Then die-cut some leaves out of the foil.


Step 7

Assemble your layout by adhering the die-cut letters, then add your photo. Create a cluster using your foil leaves and cut out elements.

Color of the Month for August is Desert Sand

Color of the Month for August is Desert Sand. This light cream color is a beautiful way to express warm soft earthy tones. Not only is it a great compliment to chocolate browns but it looks great with a shimmery element. If you are looking for a soft shimmery gold that is not bright yellow then we highly recommend inks such as Delicata Champagne or Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Desert Sand. If you are looking for a dye ink to blend with brown colors then Memento Desert Sand is also a great choice.

August also brings a collaboration with Rinea Foil Paper. Look out for how unique and versatile these foil papers are in paper crafting and jewelry making projects.

Here is a Sneak Peek of what we have to offer.

Fun stamped characters and bright ink colors are a joyful combination. I placed my cute dog image on a bright yellow background that was inspired by our warm July color of ‘Tuscan Sun’. I inked the background pattern directly on the folded card base: First, I stenciled a large yellow circle on the card and then inked another patterned layer on top. This double stenciling technique is super easy and using just a part of your stencil pattern makes your old stencil look cool and fresh again! If you don’t have a circle stencil you can cut it from paper or a piece of film/plastic sheet. And instead of a circle, you can use any shape you wish: an oval, a heart, a triangle, a hexagon…the possibilities are endless!

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Place card base folded on your craft mat. Place a circle stencil on the card, secure with masking tape. Ink the circle with yellow Cantaloupe Memento ink; dab the ink on the card with a Jumbo Dauber. Remove stencil.


Step 2

Place a pattern stencil on the inked card front and layer the circle stencil on top in its original position. Ink the circle area with orange Tangelo Memento ink. Remove both stencils. TIP: For the second inked layer, any patterned stencil can be used. For catching all the details of the stencil pattern use the smaller Sponge Dauber for inking.


Step 3

Attach a piece of masking tape on the bottom of the card. Cut a paper strip of a matching color and stamp the sentiment on it. Glue strip on the card.


Step 4

Stamp, color and cut out the main image. When coloring with alcohol markers, use Memento ink for stamping. When coloring with watercolors or watercolor pencils, use VersaFine Clair or VersaFine ink.


Step 5

Glue the main image on the card front. Decorate sentiment strip with two white gel pen dots (optional). Finished!

Learn How to Create a Quick and Easy Sour Cream Container Craft

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello friends! Today I have a quick package, normally called ‘Sour Cream Container’ shape. I created it with designer paper and added an extra special touch with Versa Magic Inks. I selected a two-step stamp from Altenew, the Leaf Canopy stamp set. It includes the lineal and solid images but this idea can be made with any type of stamps.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 15 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Stamp, with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the lineal stamp using a stamping tool over a yellow piece of designer paper of 6″x 6″ size.


Step 2

Remove the lineal stamp and place the solid stamp over the lineal stamp and pick up with the acrylic door. Ink the solid images entirely with Mango Madness VersaMagic Ink and stamp. Ink up a few touches on the insides of the leaves with Red Magic VersaMagic Ink and stamp. I used the DewDrop inkpads in VersaMagic because with the teardrop shape it is very easy to add the selective color to the images without getting the second color accidentally over the whole image.


Step 4

Add double-sided Tear It Tape to one entire inside border and paste it over the opposite side to create a tube. Add double-sided tape to one end to close by pinching it together. Place the candy or gifts into the tube. Add the tape to the other end and close, pinching in opposite (90 degrees) direction.


Step 5

As a final touch, I added a tiny sentiment that I created with a die-cut and adhered with On Point Glue.
