TupeloDesigsLLC DT Project -- Having fun with the Mini Minc

Welcome back friends. I hope you had a good weekend and that your week is off to a good start. I am back sharing another card today as a guest designer for TupeloDesignsLLC.

I started by foiling some patterned paper with my Heidi Swapp Mini Minc machine using some gorgeous pink foil. I don't believe these papers are available any longer but you can foil anything that has toner on it. It was hard for me to capture the beauty of the foiled paper in my photo but if you look in the top right corner, you get a better feel for what it really looks like -- it's a gorgeous pink color.

After I had foiled the paper, I got to work stamping my flamingo from the gorgeous Color Layering Flamingo set from Hero Arts. I love all the depth you can achieve with this image with just a few ink colors. I then lined up the coordinating die cut and easily cut the flamingo out -- don't you just love how the die also cuts in between the legs up top?  I then heat embossed the sentiment, also from the same stamp set. After I attached the sentiment strip, I popped up my flamingo on some foam tape for added dimension.

Oh gosh, too bad you couldn't capture the pink because it that corner looks amazing and I think I can see a bit of it through the vellum. The flamingo looks fabulous, too. And I do like that the die takes care of that top part of the legs. Beautiful card. Have a great day! :) Hugs.

Capturing sparkle, glitter and foil are such a challenge with a camera! Love this card--so pretty!

What a beautiful card! I love that particular flamingo stamp set the layering makes it look more sophisticated not cutsie. I love the foiled look especially the pink and yes it is a shame it is so hard to photograph. If anyone is looking for more cards or embellishments for the minc HSN has a nice selection of Anna Griffin items. Of course shipping I not free lol. tfs
