January 2019 - Kre8tors Blog Hop - Tic Tac Toe

January 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Today I am joining the Kre8tors blog hop for January. This month we are playing tic-tac-toe and I chose the bottom row: Heat Emboss | No Layers | Ribbon.

Using the Swirly Frames stamp set from the annual catalog, I created a three color design in the upper left and lower right corner. Then I used the cake and sentiment from the new Occasions catalog, a stamp set called "Amazing Life". I found a solid balloon in the "Blow Out The Candles" stamp set (also annual catalog) and I used clear embossing powder over Real Red ink so the balloon is shiny. I used a black marker to draw the balloon string. I did not trim down my focal layer, it was adhered full size at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to a base so that it is a no layer card.

The cotton weave ribbon was colored with a Bushel Blue Many Marvelous Marker. It looks like denim which gives this the more masculine look that I was after. I will say when coloring the weave ribbon with these markers, it is slow to dry and you will get inky fingers!

Great, masculine birthday card, Tracy Marie! Love how you used the Swirly Frames!

Tracy, your card is so fun! I love the flat cards because they are quick, simple, and beautiful! You really picked a great row to complete for this challenge, and I love how you used the stamps! Thank you so much for joining us this month on the hop!

Great technique..... any colour embossing powder !!

I like the card you came up with. I was wondering what ribbon you used... mystery solved. And I learnt something new - the no layout trick if the stock is the same size as the base. I was considering the row you chose but I wasn't sure how to use the ribbon without a layer. thank you.

It’s a bright and beautiful card! I love it. Great idea to color the ribbon!

Love the way you used the swirly frames stamp set! TFS!

Great nostalgic coloured card, I love it x
