Anna Griffin Minc - Foil and Glitter Machine

I finally had some time to play with my new foiling machine from #Anna Griffin, called the Minc. I love this little machine! Now I can bling out all my cards with little effort!

The package from HSN came with a lot of cuts and foil, but for these cards I used the Deco Foil that I found on clearance at Micheals. I wanted to practice before using all the pretty colored foil that came with the machine. It came out flawlessly! So yes you can use other foils with the Minc.
I'm cheap so I used both the positive and negative images of the foil. That foil sheet was blank by the time I finished with it! lol  I foiled on white cardstock first as seen here:
Then I took the negative and ran it through the Minc on a black toner sheet and got this effect:
I did the same for the labels.
 I forgot to take pictures of the card bases (got too excited) but here's an example of the labels. You lay the negative on the black toner sheet,
 And run it through the Minc.
 I created and cut my own designs for future use with my Cameo print and cut feature.  I printed the images out on regular paper with registration marks, took them to work and copied them onto cardstock with our laser copier, came home and cut them out. Most laser printers/copier machines will on take up to 65lb, cardstock, so you make want to check your printer/copier's specs before proceeding.

Overall this is a great little machine and I'm looking forward to creating with it some more. I'll be "Minc-ing" everything!!!


  1. Very pretty,need go back to Michael,saw that foil for 1.00,Joy

  2. I think I need to see these in person!

  3. You done/did wonderfulness with "our" new machine. So FUN isn't it!!! TFS.

  4. Love these cards! I love how you used the negatives.

  5. OMG, Danita, THIS is what I've been waiting patiently (well, not patiently LOL) to see someone do ---- print/cut a design and then be able to foil it. Thank you sooooooooooooo much!!!! So, NOW, I will def. be looking for some foil to this with. So this will allow the foiling to just go over the black areas, right? I wasn't too keen on the foil going over the whole design! So this is awesome!!!! You rock, Danita!!! :-)
