BIG Birthday Wishes - Shaker Card

 Hi Tea Timers, welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to build a card around the 'Big Birthday Wishes Large Sentiment die' and decided to make a shaker card for some extra birthday fun.

Sets used:

I generally would stamp and die cut out the images to add to the front of the card, but thought it would be fun and different to create a special background pattern for the shaker card.

I took an A2 panel and stamped the images repeatedly over the panel using black ink. Once I had my background completed, I took Copic Markers and used them to color in the images. 

To create my frame, I took one of the rectangle dies and die cut it out of gold cardstock. I then took a second rectangle die, 2 sizes smaller, and die cut out the middle.

I then took the large die again and die cut out the acetate to fit behind the frame. With tape runner, I adhered the acetate to the frame.

I then die cut out the large sentiment from the same gold cardstock. I added tape runner to it as well and adhered it to the frame.

With foam tape, I added it to the back of the frame, around the perimeter. I then took the anti-static powder and rubbed it on the sides of the foam tape to help get rid of the stickiness.

I then took a sequins mix that I had in my stash and added it into the frame. Once I had the desired amount, I adhered the background to the frame to complete my card.

I hope you enjoyed this super easy tutorial today. All of the items that I used are linked above. Don't forget to use the code T4TRANDY10 at checkout for extra savings. Happy Crafting!

3D Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday, everyone! DT Annalisa here sharing a 3D birthday card with the adorable I Really Dig You stamp set and the coordinating dies.  I love this cute gardening scene; it makes me want to go outside and start planting my garden!

I ink-blended twisted citron Distress Ink and Oxide using my Beautiful Blender Brushes onto a green piece of patterned paper from the Gorgeous Gingham 6x6' Paper Pad. I die-cut this using the Platform Pop-Up die from Lawn Fawn to create the base and the grass areas. 

I used the Platform Pop-Up add-on die for the sky area. I die-cut white cardstock and ink-blended it with tumbled glass over a cloud stencil. I then added splatter using mermaid lagoon Distress Ink, water and a paintbrush.

I followed several instructional videos on YouTube from Lawn Fawn on assembling the interactive die. 

I stamped and coloured (with Copics) several images from the  I Really Dig You and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I added white gel pen accents with a Gelly Roll Pen.

I used liquid glue to stick the elements down to the platform pop-up to complete the scene.

So lucky

Hey there tea-timer friends....

I have a new Time for Tea designs card to share with you today and this one uses some beautiful flowers from the Darling daffodils stamp set!

To create this card I started with a yellow card stock base which I directly stamped the large floral image on to using black ink. I then added some slight shading to the flowers and white pen highlights.

To add a sentiment I used one from the brighter days sentiment cards and adhered it to the card base using foam tape giving the card a little dimension. To complete the card I finished it off with some sequins and T4T enamel dots (clear)....

Thankyou for checking out my card today, I hope you enjoy this daffodil inspiration

Until next post, happy crafting. hugs Ashlee.

Let's party!


Hello everyone! It's Ilona on the T4T blog, ready to party 🥳
For this card I used the Let's Party Clear Stamp Set. After stamping and coloring the critters and the cake, I used my Scan 'n cut machine to cut the images. Put those aside and created the background by using my Simple Nesting Dies - A6 and Distress oxides.
Tea dye and aged mahogany for the floor. Shaded lilac, cracked pistachio and evergreen bough for the top. 
Finished it by adding splatters with white acrylic paint.

For high contrast I chose white cardstock for the Let's Party Large Sentiment Die.
To make it stand out even more, I added shade by die cutting another piece in grey cardstock. Glued those two die cuts together and glued it onto my background.

I then added the critters and the cake, using 3D foam tape to create depth.
I added Stickles (sunburst) onto the yellow parts for some extra sparkle 🌟
Then I adhered the entire panel onto a blue panel which I cut using the Sweet Scalloped Dies.

Added the mint colored dots from the summer haze Time For Tea Designs Designer Enamel Dots set and that finished my card. Hope it gets you in the partying mood (partying = crafting, obviously 😉)

All the best,

Happy SNAIL Mail!

 Hi Tea Timers, welcome back to the blog. I wanted to send out some snail mail to a friend and thought I would make it Happy Snail Mail! I love this You Got Mail stamp set and thought it was perfect for what I wanted to send out.

Sets used:

(coordinating die set available here)

I first stamped out my images and fussycut them out. I then used Copic Markers to color the images and set them to the side.

For my background, I took an A2 panel and blended it with Salvaged Patina and Scattered Straw Distress Oxides and a cloud stencil.

I took another A2 panel and die cut out the grass piece. I then blended the piece with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss Distress Oxides and set it to the side.

With the 'happy' word die, I die cut it out of pink cardstock. And with the 'mail' word die, I die cut it out of teal cardstock.

To assemble my card, I first adhered the grass piece using liquid adhesive. I then added the mailbox image behind it. 

I decided how I wanted the sentiment to go by adding the snails first using foam tape and then adding the words using liquid adhesive.

I wanted it to look like the happy mail was falling and raining on the loving snails so I used a mixture of foam tape and adhesive to add the envelopes above them, falling from the sky. I trimmed off any excess pieces.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will send out some Happy Snail Mail too! All of the items I used are linked above and don't forget to use the code T4TRANDY10 at checkout for extra savings.

Colorful foxes with Kaja

Hi all,

It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I am back with a bright and adorable birthday card!

Take a look:

This time around, I wanted to make a bold card for my nephew that just loves anything colorful. I started off by stamping two cute little foxes from Birthday fox stamp set. 

Since I know I wanted to use bold colores, I decided to go with a gray color for foxes and use more color with other images and the background.

Next, I die cut two rectangles from the A2 Stitched hearts cover die from white cardstock that I will use as a cover for my card.

Then, I cut down a piece of yellow and red colorful paper from the Sweet summer paper pad. I trimmed it down to be the same size as my card base and positioned it behind the white panel, so it nicely peeks out the rectangles.

I stamped out the sentiment from Birthday fox in black ink and this time I decided to go with a simple 'Happy birthday'.

I glued everything on the square card base using double sided foam squares and liquid glue.

Big Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday, everyone. DT Annalisa here sharing a fun birthday card featuring stamps and dies from Time For Tea Designs. I love how the Big Birthday Wishes Sentiment Die fills up the card. 

I began by die-cutting patterned paper from the Sweet Summer 6x6Paper Pad with a 6-inch by 4-inch stitched rectangle die. I ink-blended the edges of the pokadoted paper with Aqua Sky ink from Concord & 9th using my Beautiful Blender Brush. I adhered this to a card base with double-sided tape.

Next, I used peacock feathers Distress Oxide spray on watercolour cardstock and heat set it. I added silver metallic watercolour splatter with a paintbrush and water. Once dry, I die-cut the cardstock with the Big Birthday Wishes Sentiment Die.

I stamped and coloured (with Copics) several images from the Let’s Party and cut them out with the coordinating die set. I added white gel pen accents with a Gelly Roll Pen.  

I added double-sided foam tape (of two different thicknesses 1 mm and 3 mm) to most elements and stuck them down to the card base. I used liquid glue on the balloon and slid it behind the cat.
