But I want to share a little secret with you.
You CAN inspire yourself.
Yep.
True story.

A few weeks back I posted THIS mini album to the HeidiSwapp blog. I am using it as my own inspiration piece. Cause you know why? It’s OK to be inspired by your own work. So here’s what I am going to do today:
I am going to take Minc techniques from that project, demonstrate those techniques, and create a tag card. All from the visual inspiration I added to that mini album.

You up to the challenge?
Here we go.

First. The cover on that mini album had a die cut. It was a Minc Glittered heart.
Here’s what I did.

I gathered:

Minc Pink Glitter Sheet
Minc Glue Pen
something to glitter (cut the heart on my Silhouette)

I ‘painted’ the heart die cut with the Glue Pen. After it was allowed to dry, I ran it through the Minc Machine with the Pink Glitter Sheet. This created a glittered die cut ready to embellish the front of my tag.

Another technique utilized on the mini album was to use the Glitter Sheet on one of the new Minc Vellum Papers. I gathered the vellum, Glitter Sheet, the Minc Brush, and went to work.

I love this technique. With any of the new Minc Foils this vellum just pops with pretty delicate glam. It will be a great addition to my tag.

The last technique I will show you today from that aforementioned mini album just requires the Glue Pen and the Glitter Sheet.

I simply edged the tag with a good swipe of the Glue Pen. While it was not quite dry, and almost tacky,  I tapped it on the Glitter Sheet. This technique does not require the Minc Machine. And it leaves a subtle touch of glitter. This pulled all the pieces together for the tag.
