AG Minc machine

Two weeks ago Anna Griffin was on HSN with a Minc 6" foiling machine (mini minc).
I've seen a lot of youtube videos on this foiling and was very interested.
I'm a card maker and this mini size I couldn't resist!!!
It arrived late yesterday, so I played with it this morning.
I LOVE the mini size, it sits on top of my jetmax cubes.
 WARNING! I only had it on about 15 minutes and my jetmax cube was very warm, so I went and got a glass trivet out of the kitchen to put it on.

Here's some samples I played with:
on the left the rose gold and on the right the gold

so SHINY!!!!

this is the gold- you can't see it but there is quite a bit of blank spots and I even ran it thru again and it didn't help much. The setting was at 3.

this is the rose gold and I reread the directions (machines will very) so I put the setting to 4 and YES! much better!!!

I LOVE FOILING!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not a fan of Anna Griffin designs and I got the auto ship, I think I'll cancel the auto ship and get a laser printer....I have a Silhouette so WOW!!! the designs would be endless!!!
If you have the Cricut Explore you can print your designs also.
AG also has glitter sheets - I need to go play....bye - HAPPY FOILING!!

Happy "first" Mother's Day card

This card is for my niece, she had twin girls. Notice I said HAD! The twins came a month early and are doing very well. PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!
The card is an A6 (6.5"w x 4.5"h) . I used the chicken from the cricut cart Animal Kingdom cut @ 3.76"h and the baby chicks are from Create a Critter cut @ 1.83"h and the bows are from Everyday Paper Dolls cut @ 1.53"w..  All the wording was done on the silhouette.

Mother's Day cards

Here are my cards, I made them an A2 (4.25"w x5.50"h). The card is from the Silhouette store. I LOVE how they turned out!!!! I loved the green one the BEST so thats going to my Mom. The letters on the inside I cut to match each card. Pretty huh?
