Hello everybody! How are you doing today? We're still putting up with clouds & rain, so I got bored and went to AC Moore's with a coupon. Uh Oh! Trouble! I have been resisting Heidi Swapp's Minc Machine for quite a while, but I saw it on sale, 50 percent off. That's the end of the story. HAD to HAVE it.
I have found this machine to be lots of fun to play with, and I can just imagine the beautiful, gold cards I can create at Christmas time. Just a few days after buying the machine, I went back to the store with another coupon to purchase more colors to use. This first card, however, is gold.
The card I'm posting today is actually not a creation of mine -- I CASEd (copy & share everything) it from one of Gina's videos at Gina K Designs' Stamp TV. The paper, from Sending Love Stamp TV Kit, was first sponged with Turquoise Sea, Jelly Bean Green and Passionate Pink inks. THEN I put it through the Minc Machine with a piece of Gold foil, and the whole design turned out gold! Neat, huh? Like magic. Next I pulled out a sentiment from an earlier Stamp TV Kit and ran it through the machine, too, so it would be gold. After layering it on black and white papers, I attached it with a ribbon. That's all it took to create this beautiful card.
Wish you could see the shimmery gold! It's gorgeous. I can see using this machine can be addictive...
Thank you'all for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and sentiments very much, and I hope top see you again soon!
