New Release - Woodland Critters

Hi everyone, It's Cat here!

Time for Tea Designs has had a brand new launch on Create and Craft, with some gorgeous new Stamps and die sets! 

Here is a card created using the 'Woodland Critters' stamp and die set as well as the 'Hugs' die. 

Is'n it adorable!!

The back ground has been created using Tim Hotz Distress inks 'Peeled Paint' and 'Scattered Straw'. I stamped out the images from the Woodland Critter set with moment Ink and coloured with Promarkers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images and placed on the created background. Finally I die cut the 'Hugs' from some copper coloured glitter paper. 

I hope you like it!

Simple Thinking Of You Card


DT Katrina here sharing a card featuring one of the new clear stamp sets being released tomorrow the 11th November on Create And Craft TV. Make sure you join Jo Davies live at 3pm GMT to see the full reveal of all the brand new stamps, dies and stencils, plus the new blending brushes!

To make my card I took my card base and masked off a portion to the left hand side to add ink. I used a blending brush to add Distress Oxide inks Ripe Persimmon, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed. Once this was dry I stamped the sentiment using black ink.

Next I worked on my images. I stamped the cute fox and the leaves from the Woodland Critters stamp set, on to some Neenah classic crest 80lb cardstock and coloured them in with my Copic markers. I then die cut the images with the coordinating dies. I adhered the images to the card using a tape runner.
This is simple card to make. You can use any colour scheme and images. I hope this inspires you give it a try.

Take care for now. 


You Make me Smile

Hello! DT Annalisa here and today I am sharing a box card I created using some of the newest arrivals in the Time For Tea Designs shop; the Thanks A Whole Bunch and You’re Elephantastic stamp sets as well as the Box Clever Die Set. I also used the Butterflies Clear Stamp Set and Smile Sentiment and Scalloped Frame Die Set from previous releases. It's always great to be able to mix and match new and older stamp sets.

First I die cut out the Box Clever Die Set from some Neenah Solar White 110 lb card stock. Next, I stamped the flowers from the Thanks A Whole Bunch stamp set and coloured them with copics. I coloured in the base pieces from the die set with Twisted Citron and flicked on some Mowed Lawn for some extra detail.

I stamped, coloured and die cut the girl and other elements on the box card and adhered them to the base elements. I cut out some openings in the back base lawn piece using Lawn Fawn's Sandy Beach Accents die set. I used these openings to slip in the happy girl and flower. I used some acetate to pop up the cute butterfly so it looks like she is flying next to the girl.

For the sentiment, I stamped 'you make me' in black ink and used the 'Smile' sentiment from the Smile Sentiment and Scalloped Frame Die Set. I used Wilted Violet to colour some card stock and add some droplets of water before die cutting the smile sentiment.

Sending Christmas Deer - First Look at the New Winter Release

Hi all! Jo here sharing some pics from last nights FB Live.

If you missed it you can catch the slightly edited version below. Be sure to watch as I show you some more sneak peeks from the T4TD Winter Release as well as demonstrate our brand new Beautiful Blender Brushes.

All of the new products will be available to purchase from Create & Craft Monday the 11th November. Ant & I will be on Create and Craft that same day at 3pm GMT so please do watch, record, stream us if you can.
You can watch via their website from anywhere in the world @

So back to the FB Live Craft With Jo.
We came to you from a very wet & wild Sheffield! It felt like end of the world weather outside but thankfully we were safe and warm inside crafting with all of you!

I made my aperture using the largest die in our Hexagon Nest Die set. This made the perfect window for my stencilled background to show through.

I stamped my deer and North Pole sign onto T4TD Super Smooth Cardstock,(available from 18/11/19), using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured them using my Copic Markers.

My background was stencilled using one of our new stencils and our new Beautiful Blender Brushes. I know you're going to love these brushes as much as I do! They are so super soft its impossible not to get an amazing blend with them.

I added my background to my card base which was a T4TD Top Folding A6 card blank. I used foam pads to add my focal panel with its Hexagon window over the top of my background. I also used foam pads to adhere my images.

I heat embossed my sentiment onto T4TD Grey cardstock (available from 18/11/19).

I'm so excited to share these new products with you. This card features the Christmas Deer Stamp & Coordinating Die set, the new Treemendous Stencil and our awesome Beautiful Blender Brushes. Look out for these and the rest of the New Collection Monday.

I will be sharing some more sneak peeks on the run up to the Live show and don't forget our FB Live Craft With Jo is now every Thursday at 8pm.

Elephantastic Big Hugs

Hi everyone! 
It's Cat here! 

Today I have a Time for Tea Designs DT card to share today, using the Elephantastic Stamp and Die set!. 

For this card I used Tim Holts Distress Ink 'Spun Sugar' to slightly distress the backing card. I then coloured, with Promarkers, and die cut the elephant and hearts from the Elephantastic set. I then used my stamping platform to stamp the 'BIG HUGS' sentiment from the same set. Finally i then used the Hello Rectangle Nesting Dies to cut out the black strip and the rectangle piece to place on the 6x4 Card. Finally i used a white gel pen to add the 'x'.

I hope you like it!

Happy Birthday Card

Hello DT Katrina here sharing an easy to make Birthday card featuring the Butterflies clear stamp set from Time For Tea Designs.
To start off I took a piece of stone coloured cardstock and the ‘flower garden bold prints’ background stamp from Hero Arts. I placed the stamp in my Misti stamping platform and covered it in Hero Arts white pigment ink then stamped this on to the card.
White the background panel dried I coloured the girl image with my Copic markers. The image is from the Time For Tea Designs clear stamp set ‘Butterflies.’ I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same stamp set and heat embossed it on to a strip of white card with Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder. I cut out the girl and the sentiment strip and set aside.
I took the dry background panel and die cut it out with the My Favorite Things wonky stitched rectangle die. I then adhered the panel to my card base.
I attached the sentiment strip and the girl and added some sequins for a bit of sparkle. I also added a couple of small gems to the girls hat and belt to complete the card.
I hope you like it.

Facebook Live - Feline Spooky Halloween Special!!

Hi there!

Jo here just to let you know that the latest FB Live is now available to view at your leisure on YouTube!

Be sure to watch the video below as it shows how this card was made. There's also a supply list at the end of this post for the T4tD products I used.

I should just mention that the Digi Collection featured here is still available for free with any purchase in the T4TD shop. You'll have to be quick though as the offer expires at Midnight tonight!!

I have edited it a bit so it's not so long :) If you do want to see the full length version it is still available on our Facebook page.

In this weeks FB Live video I demonstrated how to make this shadow box card using the Box Clever Die set. 


 My images were printed onto super smooth cardstock and then adhered to some cheap cardstock to give them a bit of stability once they were used on my card. I coloured them with my Copic Markers and fussy cut them all out. The shapes were quite simple so cutting them out was relatively easy.

 I used the Box Clever Die to cut out the pieces for my Box card.
I assembled part of my card & suspended my cat & dog images onto acetate to make it look like they were flying or floating.

My background was the haunted house image from the set and I show in video how I coloured the spooky sky.

I added the Feline Spooky sentiment and some of the treat images as embellishments to the front and side panels of my card. I used Stardust Stickles to make them glittery.

Finally I suspended my cute spider from the top centre of my card window with some acetate.

Links to all the products I used are listed below.

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR FB LIVE EVENTS WILL BE ON A THURSDAY at 8PM GMT FROM NOW ON! I'd be thrilled if you could join me. :) 

If you have any ideas for what you'd like me to demonstrate using T4TD products then please do let me know either via our FB or IG pages! 

Take care & Yappy Howlloween!

2 New Yappy Howlloween Card Tutorials from Jo

Hi there!! Jo here sharing some cards from the new Digi Stamp Collection 'Yappy Howlloween'.

This set is super cute and is also completely free when you purchase anything else from the shop!! Woop wooooop!!

I couldn't wait to play with these sets. What's really cool about them is that when you make your purchase the images are available immediately to download to your computer. No waiting for the postman to arrive!! Yaaay! 

You can also resize your stamps to fit your preferred card base or make them large enough to create a spooky banner with!! Cool eh?

So here are the cards I made.

First is the Collection namesake Yappy Howlloween. I couldn't resist the pun!:) 

I used Distress Oxide Inks on my background to create a night sky. I added splatters of white acrylic paint to add some stars.

I coloured my spooky pup, witches hat, treat bag & treats in Copic Markers. I added some sparkle with Nuvo Glitter Drops.

I gave my image and sentiment some stability by adding to some cardstock & then fussy cutting my pup ghost out. I raised both up on foam pads. I gave his nose a 'wet look' appearance with some glossy accents!

My second card is Trick or Squeak! :)

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for the T4TD products used.

I love this little mouse with his pumpkin. I wanted him to have an Autumnal background so this stencil I had in my stash was perfect.

I used an A6 top folding card blank. First I masked off the base of my card & then used distress oxide inks to blend through my leafy stencil.

My little mouse was coloured with Copic Markers and then adhered to some cardstock before fussy cutting him out.

I layered my sentiment on card too before cutting it out. I then used foam pads to add both my image and sentiment to my card base.

Stencilling directly onto the card base is a really great way to create a Clean And Simple card. These were so easy and fun to make and because you can print your digi stamp mulitple times in one go they're perfect for batch card making.

I have a done a full tutorial video for both cards. The first one available is the Trick or Squeak tutorial. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel to be notified of any new videos and tutorials.

You can also find the T4TD products I used below.

I hope these cards inspired you to try digi stamps if you haven't used them before.
Have a Spooktacular day!! Jo x
