Mini Verse Album

Hey Friends, welcome back to my blog today.  It is nearing the end of November and I have to say how pleased I am with the weather, for Ontario, this time of year we most often have snow and cold temps and touching wood, so far, this fall has been amazing.

The winner from our recent Black Friday Peek Blog Hop has been announced
Diana Joy. who came from  Angelicas Blog.   Diane will need to email info@heartfeltcreations.us with her details.

Today I am sharing with you, what i am calling, a Mini Verse Album, designed using the Stamps from the Black Friday release and i also tried something different. 

 I wondered how could i use the mini Minc Machine on these images.  So i stamped all the images i wanted to use with black ink, scanned them into my computer, and then, printed them out on my laser printer.  I then cut them down to 6x6 and ran them through my mini minc machine, i have to say, i was amazed.  I love how the gold foil reacts, its almost holographic. here are some details of this mini verse album which i created from scratch.


NO, this is not embossing, this is foiling, with gold foil and the Minc Machine!


I used three colors of foil through this album gold, rose gold, and red on the verse images. And unless you turn the tags i created into the light, you cannot tell they are foiled.




I have to say, that this has got to be one of my most favorite projects i have created int he plus thre years i have been with heartfelt, i think because i tried something different, and the result is amazing, you can be sure i will be using gold foiling more often on my projects, until next tim, Happy Scrapping.
