Birthday Bunnies

Hello crafty friends, Kitty here! It's time for my usual Thursday DT spot for Time For Tea Designs. As it's been so dark and cold I thought I would brighten things up and make a spring themed card. So of course out came the bunnies and a cute scene was made...

I started out by creating the background. I used the Scene It Stencil to create the clouds with a little Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. I then used Mowed Lawn & Twisted Citron Inks to create the grass. I used the fence from the Windmill Add On Die Set. I die cut white card using the Slimline Slopes Die and attached the piece on top of my background. I stamped all my images from the Blooming Bunnies Stamp Set and coloured them with Copics. I cut them all out and added them onto the card with foam pads. I stamped the sentiments from the Bold Sentiments Stamp Set and die cut with the Bold Sentiments Die Set. I added them onto the card and added some pearls to finish.

Thank you ever so much for dropping by today.

Die-Cut Inlay Intertwined Love | Video with Tasha

Hey crafty people!

I hope that this new year is treating you and yours well. <3

Today I'm sharing a video tutorial showing a die-cut inlay technique with the large Intertwined Love die that is part of the newest release.
As soon as I saw this die, I knew that it would be perfect for this technique and I'm showing two ways that you can give it a go!

Whilst there may be two examples, I'm getting three finished cards by using the leftover pieces - so be sure not to throw those away!!!

Rainbow Two-For-One Cards

My plan for this card was the full rainbow background, but I actually think I love the 'leftover' card more!

I absolutely love having these pre-printed sentiments available to me, and I think they make perfect sub sentiments for a larger die cut sentiment/word like this one. (I used the Brighter Days, Black set for all of my cards today.)

The colours that I used for the Rainbow are all Catherine Pooler inks:
Rockin' Red
Orange Twist
Grass Skirt
Something Borrowed
Grape Crush

The gorgeous super fine glitter that I used is Gold Dust from WOW! Embossing Powder, and the double sided adhesive is Altenew.

Pastel Colour Scheme

I cut my card panel using the new A2 Stitched Hearts Panel Die for a bit interest in the background of this card - I absolutely LOVE that this die is a2 sized as that is the go to size for me.

Rather than cutting the die two separate times to piece together; for this one I just inked up the inside pieces using some different colour inks. (I did use a second white die cut to stack up the outline so it was higher than the inside pieces - but this is totally optional and you don't have to do it to create this design. I'm just a bit extra like that.)

The inks colours that I used for this design are:
Pucker Up
Catching Rays
In The Park

So those are my cards for today, lovelies! I hope you enjoyed the video and if you give these techniques a try don't forget to tag both myself (@handmadebytasha13) and Time For Tea Designs.
This way we won't miss your gorgeous creations!

As always, thank you for spending this time with me!

I hope that you have a lovely, happy, safe & wonderful week!
Stay Crafty!

Love you lots

 Hello crafty friends! Silvia's here today with an easy Valentine's card.

I started cutting some white, pink and red stripes with the two smallest die from the new "Simple Slimline Nesting" set and I glued on a 5"x3,75" panel.

I cut out the excess and I darkened edges with vintage photo Distress Oxide ink and I splattered with brown ink and picket fence and antique bronze Distress Paints. 

I then cut three times the sentiment with "Love You Lots Large Sentiment" die set, I glued one above the other and I covered with glitter.


I put everything together and that's my card!

I hope you enjoy it. I wish you an amazing day and don't forget that you can get a 10% off your Time for Tea order with the code T4TSILVIA10.

Big hugs, Silvia.

Bold Sentiments


Today I'm sharing three cards I made using the awesome new Bold Sentiment stamps from the January release.

I started with the large thanks - who doesn't need thank you cards at this time of year? I lined up a rainbow of ink colours and used my stamp platform to space them equally starting with the red. I added in an extra lilac at the top and chose a matching paper from the Brighter Days pad to use as a mat.

Since I had all the rainbow inks out on my desk I created a second card, but this time using the large happy from Bold Sentiments. The paper mat is also from Brighter Days.

I couldn't resist making one final card using the happy from Bold Sentiments stamped out in varying strengths of black ink - a sort of ombre effect.

I stamped the 'everything' in pink and added some of the small stars from the same stamp set - always love the tiny extras in T4TD sets.

This was once again matted onto a paper from the Brighter Days pad.

I hope you like my cards using the awesome products from T4TD. If you'd like to purchase any items you can get 10% off by using my code - T4TJANE10.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Love You Lots

Hello friends, today I show you this new card, created with my new goodies from the last release. Have you seen many wonders? Really beautiful stamps and dies, how can you resist?

For my card I used this die ....Geometric Snowflake for the background, I chose some Distress in shades of blue, then I used the Wow embossing powder to give colour and brightness to this important sentiment Love You Lots 
I added these adorable squirrels from the set Jumping With Joy I really like the result, I hope you like it. 
I wish you a wonderful week and remind you to use the code T4TCLAUDIA10  that will give you a 10% discount!!

Geometric Snowflakes - Thank You Card

Hi Friends! It's Miki here. I hope you enjoyed our little giveaway to celebrate the new release and I'm hoping you managed to get your hands on some goodies!

Today I'm sharing the card I made for the hop. I used the amazing Geometric Snowflakes die. I have to be honest, I see them as flowers but Jo rightly pointed out that they can be whatever you want them to be!

I started by ink blending a panel in the following distress colours:

  • Picked Raspberry
  • Squeezed Lemonade
  • Cracked Pistachio
  • Tumbled Glass

I then sprayed some perfect pearls water and let it dry. In the meantime, I cut a piece of glittery cardstock the same size as my cover die and glued it to a matching card base. Once my ink blended cardstock was dry I used the Geometric Snowflakes die and cut the panel. I cut it 3 more times from white cardstock and glued them together for added dimension. I then glued the panel on top of the glitter paper on my cardbase.

For the sentiment I used the Thank You Sentiment Die Set. I cut it 2 times from white cardstock and once more from the same glitter cardstock I used in the background and glued them together. To ensure it doesn't get lost in the background, I cut it one more time from black cardstock and off-set it a bit on the back of the letters. I then glued it to the front of my card and that's it.

I think you can never have enough thank you cards and this one is just so full of colour and sparkle, I love it!
