Valentines for paradise of Stamps

Good day everyone,

I have something new to share with you today, I recently purchased the Mini Minc machine, 
so I've been busy exploring the possibilities that I can so with it. 

I created a card for our challenge of Paradise of Stamps


I'm sorry that the pictures did not turn out all that great, very hard to photograph
My card actually has a dry embossing in the background.


The background is a heart string Digi image which I printed  on 
Neenah white in my laser printer and ran through the Mini Minc machine
with red foil.  The mason jar is a die from Frantic Stamper.


The die is full (which means the center was not see though) 
I cut the die on a white heavy cardstock, then traced the center 
and cut it out.  To add the foil,  I took a photocopy of the die
then I ran it through the Mini Minc with Silver foil, cut out the foil area
and glued it to the top of the jar.  The foil area will be a bit wider then the
edges of the die cut but that's ok because the acetate is on the back
 so when you add glue it will also adhere to the acetate. 


A touch of ribbon, jute cord and s cute Love charm



This card was super fun to do,  The image had a faded look in the hearts
if you look closely you will see that the foil also looks a bit faded.
It looks awesome too bad its so hard to photograph

12 Tags of 2016 - January

Hi everyone,

Well off to a new adventure, my first time joining in the 12 tags of 2016 
over at Tim Holtz blog



This was super fun to try new techniques, 
I had to improvise because I did not have much for stamps
Folders used are Clock on the top and Diamond plate for the bottom


For the stamped images I used ones from Visual Artistry collection


I did not have the Alarm clock stamp but I do have the die
So I stamped a background over the die, heat embossed with Frosted Crystal
powder and then applied the chalk Technic


I used the stamped clock image to pop up on 3d


I am also entering my tag here
