VIDEO: How to Wow – Ink Swiping on Foil (TTTC001)

Jun 8, 2017 | Congratulations Cards, Tutorials & Videos | 7 comments

Play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Inspiring you 8-ways each week! Find us @tttchallenge or New challenges every Thursday!

I am so proud and humbled to be a part of the new Tic Tac Toe Challenge Design Team! Today is our first challenge (TTTC001), and I thought I’d go big and incorporate a new video series with my cards – “How to Wow”. This series will take amazing techniques and knock them down to totally do-able. (It is papercrafting, not brain surgery! Right?!)

Our first challenge board was created by Peggy Noe (, so, she’s the week’s Featured Designer. I decided to go for the far right column – Gold – Black – Baker’s Twine. And with that, the first How to Wow video was decided – how to do ink swiping on foil paper. So fun, so easy, and so impressive!

I don’t want to have you spend all your time reading so, really, let’s just get to the video! In all honesty, the technique is very simple, but having some tips before you start can make all the difference. Add this technique to your crafting toolbox and it will be a go-to for years to come!
