Anna Griffin Mink Foil Storage And My First Card With It

Well I sure hope you enjoy this post I had so much fun playing in my Craft Room with my new toys; The Minc, Anna Griffin Paper, and my Anna Griffin Lace Folders and Dies. I really challenged my self working with these items and I have to tell you I had you tube running right in front of me to make sure I did everything right.

I hope you learned something by watching this. As you can see the Minc was as easy as can be and the rose gold foiling adds elegance to this card.

This is a close up of the foil project and you can see the great detail it allows, I love it and can't wait to do some of my own designs using my Explore and my copy machine. I am so excited that I own a laser printer!

The above you can see some of the pieces that I made by using the Anna Griffin Dies and they were so easy to do. I did learn using washi tape is the best thing to do when lining up the papers on my Sizzix.

Another close up enables you to see the details on this card.

This is the final picture showing you the detail. It amazing in person and I sure hope you enjoyed this post. I am always encouraged by your sweet-sweet comments, they continue you to inspire me.

I have the AG minc too, LOVE IT!!!
In my trial and errors, when using the AG designs turn the machine up to 4 instead of 3 and run it thru twice and you'll get better coverage.

I bought the AG Minc too but did not use it yet. I hope to have a comparison post (Minc, laminator and YourStory) on the blog in the next few days! Beautiful card~

Oh my Sheila, that is absolutely gorgeous.

Such a lovely card Sheila ... and a great video too. The Minc looks so easy to use. I don't have the Minc yet, but I do have all the other foiling supplies. I tried it out with my YourStory. The coverage was not as smooth and complete as the results you have with the Minc. However, if you like the grunge or distressed look, it was perfect. Looks like I need to just admit it ... I need the a Minc to get the results I want. Thanx for sharing your video. Hugz, Carol

Wow, Sheila, that is just gorgeous! I have only just learned about the Minc, and didn't realize there is an Anna Griffin one. I will have to check this out. Thank you for sharing this with us! Have a great weekend with your family.

Gorgeous card!!! I love those dies too. You make such beautiful cards Sheila! I just got the Minc also but have not had a chance to play yet but will soon. Also Sheila at Michaels right now you can get the Deco foil in the clearance section for $1.99. And I noticed at Hobby Lobby they have the smaller rolls of the Deco foil by Heidi Swapp and the bigger sheets too. And she said you can use those in her Minc. Looking forward to another one of your awesome videos!

Gorgeous, Sheila. I have the Heidi Swapp Minc and so far it and my laser printer and the toner sheets I had made at Staples are not happy with each other, so it's a work in progress. I'm hoping to settle the dispute today by trial and error and wasting yet more foil. Your card is just so beautiful.
