3 Ways to Stencil on Rinea Foil

Rinea foil is a fun product to work with and there’s nothing quite like it on the market. It is a non porous “paper” that is bendable and foldable and it holds it’s shape. It’s also super shiny! There are a lot of great technique you can do with this paper and I’ve shared them on my YouTube channel. I’ll leave a few linked at the end of this post!

While Rinea foil is a fun product to work with, it can be a little tricky to work with because it is a non porous surface. Today, I’m sharing three easy ways to stencil your Rinea Foil. Be sure to watch the video tutorial below!

Today’s video is posted on the Imagine Channel. If you haven’t already, be sure to follow my playlist where I’ll be adding each of the Imagine videos that I’ll be posting!


On my first card I wanted to stencil with the Iridescent Creative Medium. I added it onto the black foil, which is one of my favorites! Any paste will stick to the foil! I love the iridescent look on the black, though! This technique is also going to give you some raised texture, too.

I finished this card VERY simply. I cut out the center of the foil panel and added a piece of blue cardstock to fill in that space. For the sentiment, I added a die cut hello that I built up with several die cuts to create a chipboard effect! This is one of my all time favorite techniques to give your die cut sentiments a bit of dimension and help standing out from your backgrounds.

Rinea foil is also a bit unique in more ways than I listed above. For instance, on the color foil the color can actually be removed off the foil to reveal gold underneath (sometimes silver). To get the color off the foil Rinea has Ghost Ink. It can be a bit tricky to use, but I have a video with tips and tricks on using it HERE. I sponged the ghost ink through a stencil and then, after allowing it to sit, I wiped away the color to reveal the stenciled pattern.

I love the Succulent stamp set from The Stamp Market and I decided it would be great to finish this card with! I die cut and dry embossed a circle to be the background for my stamped image from that stamp set. Adding a little shaped background is a great way to separate the image from the busy background and help it stand out.

If you want to add color through the stencil without any added dimension, obviously ink is your best choice. But you have to be careful about your choice of ink. It needs to be able to set on a non porous surface. I love the new Staz On Pigment ink for stenciling onto this foil. It is nice and opaque and sets nicely, plus it comes in a variety of colors! I used Black Piano Staz On Pigment ink to sponge through the stencil onto purple foil.

The sentiment on this card is by far my FAVORITE!!!! I die cut the letters for “HELLO” from black card stock. Each letter was cut three times so I could build up each letter for added dimension. But the top layer of card stock I actually covered in Versamark ink and added Birthday Party embossing powder for a great purple glittery sentiment!

These three ways to add stenciling to Rinea Foil are all very easy and can be customized to fit your card making and paper crafting style! If you want texture, go for the paste. If you’re looking for a matte look with no dimension use the Staz On Pigment ink. And finally if you just want to reveal the gold beneath the color, use the ghost ink!
