Birthday Bears

Hello everyone!
DT Anila on the blog again with a quick Birthday card.

A quick card using the Bearing gifts stamp set with some older products here.
I simply die cut some hexagons from the Rainbow brights essential paper pack.
Adhered two flat on the card base and popped up one on a foam tape. 
Stamped, coloured and cut the images.
Adhered the images to the card on the hexagons. Some flat and some on foam tape. Die cut the sentiment and adhered it on the card. Stamped the "Happy" to complete the card.

Thank you for stopping by

You're So Cool - FB Live Replay Card Making Tutorial

Happy Wednesday all!

Jo here with the link to our latest FB Live replay video.

On Saturday we had an impromptu FB Live Craft With Jo. 
Be sure to check out the video below to see exactly how this card was made & also to hear how I was interrupted by next doors cat :D :D

I was in a summer mood so decided to use the Life's A Beach set and a background I already had in my stash!

The Clear Drops are new in store and really make the background look cool, like water droplets on a glass of ice cold cocktail :)

In the video I show you how I colour our little girls skin and hair.

I used Glossy Accents to make my Ice Lolly look icy and my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush pen to make my Ice Cream look frosty.

I used our new Bubblegum cardstock to create my frame.

I really hope that this card brightens up what is a rainy day here in the UK. 
Happy Crafting!

The items I used are listed below.


Bear Hugs & Donuts!

Happy Wednesday!

It's Shabneez here with a cute donut shaped card to share made using various Time for Tea products to include the Splish Splash stencil in a different way!

I made the donut base using 2 of the Circle of Love nesting dies from kraft card.  I then took the Splish Splash stencil and inked through parts of it with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink using my blender brush.  Oxide inks work particularly well with coloured cardstock as the ink sits on the cardstock as oppose to getting absorbed into it.  I added Nuvo drops in small strips to resemble sweets.

I stamped my bear and donut then coloured in using my Chameleon pens.  I added some Glossy Accents on the doughnut to give it a glaze.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my fun creation.  Don't forget you can get 10% off the entire store using my discount code T4TSHABNEEZ10!

Crafty Cats Rainbow Card

Hello Vic here today. I’m sharing a sweet card tutorial over on the Time For Tea Designs YouTube channel.

You can view the video here:
I used a standard square card for my video today, but feel free to use any card size that you like.

To start with I trimmed down a smaller panel of white card and used the Scene It Stencil and distress ink. I applied the ink to the card using the Beautiful blending brushes.

Once the sky background was completed I then used the grass stencil and applied this onto a separate piece of white card. I didn’t apply the ink onto the sky background as I will be fussy cut this grass piece out.

I am going to have the rainbow tucked behind the grass piece. Once I trimmed the grass piece out I reapplied the ink over the top.

I adhered the grass piece down but left the top of the grass with no adhesive so that the rainbow can be placed behind this. To make the rainbow I used the Circle Of Love Nesting Die and used different pieces of card to cut out each circle. You will need to use two circle dies to get a frame. Once all your colours are die cut I adhered them all onto a piece of card. You will be left with a big circle. I then trimmed the whole circle out then trimmed the circle in half. You will now be left with a rainbow.

I then stamped out my images using the gorgeous Crafty Cats Clear Stamps and I used my copic markers to colour them in. I then used the
Crafty Cats Coordinating Dies to die cut the images out.

Jo has designed lots of accessories with this stamp set so I highly recommend getting the dies if you can they are fantastic and take all the hard work out than using a pair of scissors.

I then used the sentiment that comes with the stamp set Craft Supplies Before Guys and I heat embossed this with white embossing powder onto a piece of black card. I then used my heat gun to heat set the sentiment.
I trimmed the sentiment down and applied some foam tape to the back of my ink blended panel. I also added some more clouds to my card blank with the Scene It Stencil.
Once this was complete I adhered all the images down and added some pearl drops and glitter.
Your card is now complete. Thanks so much for stopping by today and you can view all the beautiful

Have a lovely day!

Hi Guys DT member Natalie here and I have another card to share with you all using that adorable Bearing Gifts stamp set. If you read my post last I mentioned that I had done a massive stamping, colouring and Die-Cutting session with these cuties. Once finished I laid them all out on my desk and just played around with layouts. I had placed these two bears together and thought they looked like they were having a leisurely stroll in the park and that's where I came up with my idea. 
To make my scene for my bears I used the Circle of Love Nesting Dies to cut my circle and used the
6x6 Scene It stencil to create the background. 
To get the sentiment to curve around the edge of the frame I added it to my stamping block then manipulated it so it was curved and held it over the circle to see whether I needed to move one side higher or lower until I had the shape I wanted and then stamped it on my card. Then I finished off by adding the bears and my topper was finished. 
For the base of the card I cut the new XOXO cover plate die out of  white cardstock and  made sure to keep some of the holes from inside the O. I cut another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock the same size as the coverplate we cut and blended squeezed lemonade and spiced marmalade distress oxides on it then spritzed with water. This was then layered under the XOXO die cut piece and I popped the topper I made on the top and added it to my card base.
I hope you liked my card for today!

Bearing With Me - New Card Making Tutorial & Craft With Jo Video

Hi all!!

Jo here with this weeks Live Card Making Tutorial.

Be sure to watch the video below to get all the details of how we made this weeks card.

I absolutely love how this card turned out.

I used the Say Cheese Cover Plate Die & cut it from coloured cardstock to give it a completely different look! Now it looks like fun bubbles or something! :) The circles are a great size for your critters to peek out of.

I love the Bearing Gifts Stamps as there are so many fun accessories to choose from that the bears can be holding.

I love this moustached bear poking out of one of the circle apertures!! So cute!!

I ink blended the background using our Beautiful Blender Brushes to get this lovely pastel 'airbrushed' effect. Loved this colour combo!!

I added dimension by using foam pads on the back of my Say Cheese Die cut panel. I also popped up my check box on a small foam pad so it stands out.

I really hope you like todays card and enjoyed the video.

Colourful Dreams

Hello everyone! DT Annalisa here and this evening I am sharing a bright and happy celebration card (perfect for a graduation card!) featuring the Unicorn In Training stamp set and Dream Big Sentiment Dies. I just LOVE the size and the font of this sentiment that designer Jo created!

I used my Beautiful Blender Brushes to colour a card base with Distress Oxides in the colours Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon. Next, I added some water droplets and white splatters.

I die cut the Dream Big background die twice using white card stock. I then die cut out the sentiment from some Colorbok Metal Prismatic Foil Paper - I love the tiny stars that glimmer. I also used this foil to cut out some stars to add to the card.

I stamped, coloured and die cut the unicorns and other elements using my Unicorn In Training stamp and die set. These are so fun to colour!
I adhered all the elements and sentiments to the background with liquid glue and added some white lines for interest with my Gelly Roll Pen as well as some Wink of Stella for some extra shine.

I hope you enjoyed my card if you are are interested in purchasing any Time for Tea Designs products be sure to Use code T4TANNALISA10 when you visit the shop to get a 10% discount off your entire order.
