I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!  For today’s project, I’m sharing a card created using some beautifully textured paper that is foiled – yes, foiled!

For this card, I printed out a beautiful carnation image by Create with TLC using my laser printer on Epic Black cardstock.  This is an awesome black cardstock that has a very light texture.  Using toner reactive foil, I sent the image through my Minc machine, which resulted in this beautiful image.  I cut it out using a Ticket Framelits die and adhered it to a doily which is matted onto one of the beautiful Hambly Studio screenprints (a portion of Vintage Patchwork).  Since the screenprints are definitely a layering element, you do need to use a nice, sturdy card base.  For this purpose, I chose to use Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock.

Just a quick card that I really enjoyed creating…

I was playing around with the Elizabeth Craft Designs peel off stickers and Richeson watercolor paper, and I colored them in as robins using Prismacolor colored pencils, blended with Gamsol.  Then, I watercolored the background with my Spectrum Aqua markers.  The background top and bottom edges are foiled using my Minc and some teal colored foil.  I wasn’t sure I like the harsh edge of the watercolor paper against the foil, so I added a strip of birds on a wire washi tape.

This will be entered in the following challenges:

For today’s project, I’m sharing a sympathy card.

For this card, I started with a base of Earthstone Classic Linen textured cardstock.  Then, I used my Minc to foil one of the Anna Griffin background sheets, and I topped it off with some Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock.  I used a Stampin’ Up set called Love and Sympathy, and used Spectrum Aqua markers to stamp the flower and do the background.  The edge is colored using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

Here is my latest project.  I used plenty of technology to create this card, including my printer and Minc.

For this card, I started with a card base using Earthstone from the Classic Linen Package.  It is really hard to see in the photo, as it is underneath a sheet of the most awesome Vellum that I embossed using an Anna Griffin embossing folder.  (If you have never used this vellum before, it is so worth it!  It is heavy duty and embosses like a dream!)  The digital image is an old one from Paper Squirrel, and I printed it out and colored it using Portfolio watercolor pencils before foiling it with light pink foil on my Minc.  The banner is cut from a piece of cardstock from my stash and the sentiment is a My Sentiments Exactly rub on.

I am loving my Anna Griffin Minc foiling machine.  Here is another card I made using the Watering Can Tulips digital image for Imagine That digis by Kris progressive challenge.

For this card, I printed the image out on Bazzill cardstock and colored it using Portfolio watercolor pencils blended with a Dove Blender Pen.  The sentiment is due cut using dies from the Just Rite Happy Everything Tag Making Kit.  The sentiment is foiled using the printed sentiment and some gold foil, and the border is using mint foil and one of the toner sheet decorative borders that were included with the purchase of the Minc machine.  I matted the image on some bright orange construction paper and inked the edges with Wild Honey Distress Ink.

Here is my latest card for From the Heart’s progressive challenge.

I printed this adorable image out on Bazzill cardstock and colored it with Portfolio and Prismacolor watercolor pencils.  The colors are blended using a Dove blending pen.  After coloring the image and letting it dry completely, I ran it through my Minc using gold foil before inking the edges of the Spellbinders die cut with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The die cut was then mounted on a DCWV card base from the Textured Cards collection.
