Happy Birthday Sketch Flower Stencil & Foil Card

It was recently my Step-Mom’s Birthday and I wanted to make her a feminine and soft card with a pop of shimmer and foil.

Here’s what I came up with after watching a few youtube videos by Jennifer Mcguire and Laura Bassen to get inspired.

There’s a pretty good chance I will be re-making this card as a one layer card with a much smaller foiled sentiment.

Here’s a list of the supplies I used:

Luster Mica Powder sprinkled on the background – Galactic Blue 

Spellbinders Labels Four Die

Minc Mini Machine and Hot Pink Foil to make Happy Birthday Sentiment that I printed on my toner printer.

Luster Mica Powder in Hawaiian Orchid mixed with Shaded Lilac Distress re-inker and Liquitex Gloss Gel . Turtle Town Luster Mica Spray Mist mixed with Liquitex Gloss Gel . Applied through Flower #2 Stencil with a palette knife.

Confetti stars from Wal-Mart. Watercolor paper and some Coordinations purple colored paper.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card. If you have any questions about how I did something, please leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!

Foiling with the MINC Mini Machine – First Impression and a Birthday Card

I finally bit the bullet and decided it was time for me to get a MINC Mini! After seeing the great results and asking the great people on Splitcoast Stampers what their thoughts were; I decided it was time to just buy one already.

Here’s what I made the first time I used the machine:

20151010_125329 20151010_125400 20151010_125443

It’s a cute and simple Monster High card for my niece who’s turning 7. It was extremely simple to do. The only additional supplies I needed that weren’t included was a laser printer, some free images and fonts from the web, pink MINC foil (that I was able to purchase at Jo-Ann the day I decided to make this card ), black & white card stock, and some adhesive.

The pictures honestly don’t do it justice. It looks like a black and white card, but really all of the words are silver. So beautiful ! I made a video showing what comes in this awesome MINC Mini Bundle and my first time using the machine. You can see all the awesome reflective goodness in the video below.

If you are interested in purchasing a MINC Mini Bundle at a great price, please click here, MINC BUNDLE . I only have 3 in stock and they are selling at $74.99 plus $5.00 flat rate shipping to any address in the United States. These retail for $99.99. PLUS if you get your order over $75.00 , you get an extra 5% off. That means you can basically get something that’s $3.74 for FREE since that’s just $0.01 more. The shipping charge will not increase since every time you go over $40.00 in our store, you get $5.00 flat rate shipping. It’s really a great deal!
