Celebrate (its your birthday)

 Good afternoon Teatimers,

Who loves a shaker? I know I do!. Today I'm sharing this adorable shaker card made using the cute Sundae Sweeties stamp set

To start I coloured my images using my Spectrum Noir markers (colours listed below in order of lightest to darkest)

Cat  - BG1, BG3, BG5,  BG6 

Mouse - EB1,  EB2,  GB8 

Cone - LY2, LY1, LY3, GB1

Ice Cream  - GT1,  GT2,  GT3 

Cream - FS5, TN1, Blender 

Cherry - DR4, DR5, DR7 

To create the background I trimed a piece of white card to C6 size and used the Bokeh Bubble stencil  and distress inks in Abandoned Coral,  Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover.

To create the shaker I cut a frame  from Smile Scalloped Frame Die and added a piece of acetate to the back. I used 1 layer of shaker tape to the back of frame,  added a sequin mix to the centre and carefully added the stencilled panel to the back.

The whole panel was added to a piece of coordinating card and adhered to a 5x7 card blank trimed down to size.

The critters were placed onto the front of the panel and the celebrate from the Large Scalloped Frame Die was die cut and layered 3 times for dimension. I finished off by masking the sentiment stamped from the Pandamonium set leaving the it's your birthday part onto black card and embossing with white power.

Happy Winter Birthday!


Happy weekend Teatimer's it's DT member Natalie here with a winter birthday card. I just love the Winter Wreath set it's such a beautiful design and works so well on it's own or combined with the critters. To get started here's a list of materials I used.

· Winter wreath stamps and dies

· Salvaged Patina and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Inks

· Distress Oxide

· Autumn Scene Cover Plate Die

· White Fun Foam

· White and Red Cardstock

· Copic Paper

· Copic Markers

· Ink - Blending Brushes

· White Wow Embossing Powder and Embossing Ink

· Cosmic Shimmer Glue

How to Create

1) Cut out the Rectangle Die from the Autumn Scene Cover Plate Die from the white cardstock. Blend the Salvaged Patina all over the card stock and add Evergreen Bough Distress Oxides on the edges. Spritz water on top and dab off with tissue paper. Dab some of the oxides onto a paint palette and add water to add some splatters of colour. Leave to dry.

2) Stamp out the Winter Wreath stamp twice, three of the acorn leaves, two acorns, the trio of toadstools, one flower and the leafy branch onto Copic Paper. Colour with the Copics and Die cut out with the coordinating dies. Snip off the top of one of the wreaths halfway up at each side.

3) Using the wreath as a guide stamp and heat emboss the Happy Winter Birthday sentiment onto the ink blended card stock.

4) Stick on the full wreath around the sentiment with the cosmic shimmer glue. Cut out the fun foam using the coordinating die for the wreath and stick to the back of the half wreath using the cosmic shimmer glue and cut off the excess. Then stick this on top of the wreath using the glue. Sticking the trio of toadstools underneath.

5) Adhere the leaves onto the edges and the big acorn and acorn leaf onto the wreath. Then pop up the acorn at the bottom and the flower at the top of the wreath using some of the fun foam.

6) Pop the finished up piece onto the red card stock around 120cm x 150cm and adhere straight onto your card base.

Bunny Hugs Enclosed


Happy Friday! DT Annalisa here, for my latest card, I have used several Time For Tea Designs goodies that were released this past winter and spring. With so many beautiful new stamps being released, I enjoy giving some love to my older sets!

To start, I cut a panel from some white cardstock with my A2 Layering dies. I stamped the Plaid Background Clear Stamp Set with some dark teal ink onto this panel. I stamped it several times using my MISTI to get a good impression as this is a larger stamp.

I then stamped the clouds from Paper Plane Pals, the bunnies from Blooming Bunnies and the little envelope from the Happy Mail Critters Digi Stamp Add On Collection - I love that T4T has digis that are free for everyone to use. I cut out the images after colouring them with my Copics.

I stamped the sentiment from the Be Kind Be You stamp set and coloured the word 'hugs' using Prismacolor coloured pencils. I then adhered the elements of the scene using liquid glue. To complete the card, I glued some white fun foam to the back of the panel and glued this to an A2 card base. 

I hope you like this card and would love it if you could use T4TANNALISA10 for 10% off your order the next time you purchase anything from Time For Tea Designs.

Cutie Driver

Hello, DT Kitty here. It's my turn today to share my latest card. I decided to make a cute scene with some different ink combos and of course some cute critters had to feature...

I always love using pink and green on cards and actually it does blend together quite nicely. I created the background first by blending Kitsch Flamingo, Spun Sugar and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered the background with some white ink and some water. I used the clouds dies from the Landscape Edge Dies to create the clouds which I cut from white card and vellum. I used the road die from the Slimline Hillside Scene Dies to create my road. I used the You Are Awesome Sentiment Dies to create my sentiment. I used the Car Critters Stamps & Dies (also sold separately) and coloured in the images. I popped them onto foam pads along with the sentiment and added them onto the card. To finish I added a few gems and sequins.

Time For Tea Designs Stamps - Car Critters
Time For Tea Designs Dies - Car Critters, You Are Awesome, Landscape Edges, Slimline Hillside Scene
Distress Oxide Inks - Kitsch Flamingo, Spun Sugar, Twisted Citron
Hero Arts Ink - Unicorn White
Coloured Card & Vellum
Gems & Sequins

Have a brew-tiful day

 Hello Tea Timers! Silvia’s back with a new coffee themed card!

I started die cutting one of the beautiful dies from the “Square Label" set from watercolor cardstock and I colored it with vintage photo Distress spray stain and walnut stain Distress oxide spray.

I then blended some ground espresso Distress oxide ink through the “Coffee Beans" stencil, I splattered with water and I covered droplets with vintage photo Distress embossing glaze and I heat embossed them. 

I also splattered with picket fence and antique bronze Distress paints.

I stamped images from “Coffee Lover" and “Snappy Before Coffee" stamp sets, I colored them with alcohol markers and I cut them with coordinating dies (here and here).

I next cut a rectangle from “Sweet Summer" patterned paper pad and I put everything together.

That’s all for today, I hope you’ll like the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by and don’t forget you can get a 10% off your Time for Tea order with the code T4TSILVIA10.

Hugs, Silvia.
