Here you go. She is using the Minc with some pre-printed material that already has the toner on it. You can buy the pre-printed materials, or you can make your own by stamping your image, and then copying it using a laser printer:

I did this a while back. I usually like to color my stamped images, so I didn't stamp those kind of images. I decided that it would be nice to have some sentiments in foil for my cards.

I stamped my sentiments on white cardstock, and took some extra pieces of my cardstock with me to the copy place, so they could print my copies on the cardstock I brought. If you like to use your computer to make sentiments, you could do that instead of stamping them.

I used my sentiment stamps that were kind of bold, so the foil would show up good when I did it. I did Happy Birthday, Hello, and Thinking of You. I made a whole page of each sentiment to make copies of.

I used a regular laminator that I already had at home, not the Minc Machine, to do the foiling. It worked really well.

Then I cut the foiled sentiments out, matted them with a color to match my card, and attached them.

I used the Minc machine to foil these two cards. I used gold foil on one of them and multi colored foil and gold foil on the other. I first stamped the "Just for You" and "on your special day", then copied it onto cardstock with my laser copier. I then cut it to the size for a card and ran them through the Minc Machine to add the foil.

This is a pretty example from Amber at Damask Love: The Foil Files: Stamped Laser Foil Cards - Damask Love

Jennifer McGuire has some nice clean and simple cards made with this technique:
Video: Easy Gold Foil - Jennifer McGuire Ink

She uses digital downloads and prints her own images. You can go to this site to get free fonts: DaFont - Download fonts

Then you can make your own personal sentiment to foil, for example, "Happy Birthday Jennifer."

It's nice that you can use any printed item to foil. It's an easy way to customize a card without having to line up alphabet stamps or pay for a custom stamp.
