Snappy Before Coffee!

  Happy Saturday Teatimer’s this weekend has rolled around fast. Have you had a good week? Lots of crafting? That's hopefully my plan, it will be so nice to have a chilled out day. 

I know you all love coffee cards so I have a fun one to share with you today I just love a good pun don't you?!
The shape of my card didn't start out like it ended so I had originally cut out a stitched rectangle but I changed my mind after stencilling the sky and cutting out the grass. There was so much empty space so I used the new Square Label Dies to cut it out instead I like how the stitched detail stayed at the top and bottom though. Then I darkened up the sky edges with some chipped sapphire distress oxide to draw your eye in to the image. The sentiment is also stamped with the same ink. 
The crocodiles are from the new Snappy Before Coffee Stamp Set . They are super fun to colour I used the same yellow for their spikes and belly but darker greens on one and added some little spots and rosy cheeks. I coloured up the coffee cups and die cut everything out and adhered everything together. 
The it was time to make my card base I followed some kraft cardstock in half and took out one of the larger Square Label Dies. I popped the die onto the fold of the card making sure the part of the die that's on the fold is just hanging over the edge so it doesn't cut that part. Once it was made I added some splashes of coffee using the Coffee Stain 6x6 Stencil and adhered the rest if the card on top with some foam tape to give it some depth and that was my card finished up. I hope you like it it's a really quick one to make so great for any last minute needed cards. Hope you have a great weekend and don't forget you can get 10% off in the shop using code T4TNATALIE10 💖

Have a Howling Good Day


Hello and happy Friday! Annalisa here, I am following in the footsteps of Kitty's blog post and Jo's Facebook live yesterday and sharing an adorable dog card using the new Dog Gone Mutts stamp set. I am more of a cat person, but these dogs are beyond cute and I just LOVE the doghouse!

I stamped the dogs down (using Ink on 3 Blackout detail ink) onto some white cardstock. I then created a mask by using the leftover ink to stamp onto some masking paper. I trimmed the dogs out right along the line on the masking paper, removed the backing and stuck it down to the cardstock.

I stamped down the dog bowl and bone and created masks for these and added them on before stamping down the dog house. After creating a mask for the dog house, I stamped the trees, moon, birds and clouds from the Hillside Village stamp set.

To finish up the scene, I stamped the tennis ball and the 'have a howling good day' sentiment. I then coloured the whole scene in with my Copic markers and added some white gel pen accents.

I die cut out the scene with an older T4T stitched rectangle die. I then used some paper from the Brighter Days 6x6' Paper Pad to frame the scene. I adhered the patterned paper to a card base and then glued down the doggie scene on top.

Howling Good Day

Hello, DT Kitty here! It's time for my usual Thursday DT spot. Today I am sharing another of my cards showcasing the new release products. There are some really cute stamp sets in this release so do check them out. I decided to create this one with some cute woofers...

For this card I used the Time For Tea Dog Gone Mutts Stamp Set. I coloured the images with Copic Pens and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I created a subtle slimline background using my Mermaid Lagoon & Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. I layered my background onto white card. I die cut the scallop border from kraft card using the Slimline Scallop Nesting Dies. I stamped and die cut the sentiment and added all the pieces with foam pads. To finish I added some gems.

I hope you are all loving the new releases as much as the DT have been! Don't forget to use my DT code T4TKITTY10 for 10% off your order on the Time For Tea website.

Coffee first then I do the things

Hello Tea Timers!!! Silvia's here with you today and  I'm so excited about our latest's soooooo adorable, isn't it?!

I'm totally in love with the new amazing  coffee stencils and today I'd like to share with you a cute background I made with the "Coffee Stains" one.

I started cutting a 5,5"x 4,24" panel from kraft cardstock and I ink blended some tea dye, vintage photo and ground espresso Distress Oxide inks through the stencil in a random way.

I also added some heat embossed stains with vintage photo Distress embossing glaze because I love the translucent effect of this powder. I spalttered with water, brown inks and white and gold acrylic paints loosened with water.

Next I stamped two coffee cups from the "Coffee Lover" stamp set, I colored them with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, I added a white embossed heart on them and I cut them with coordinating dies.

I put everything together, I added an embossed sentiment and that's all.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and don't forget that you can get a 10% off your Time 4 Tea order with the code T4TSILVIA10.

I wish you an amazing day. Hugs, Silvia.

Stretch Your Supplies; Nesting Dies | with HandamdeByTasha

 Hey Crafty People!

It's Tasha, I'm back with a new inspirational video and this month I'm showing you how I stretched my new Square Label dies to create a fun slimline card.

I love these new layering dies, but I have to admit that I don't often make square cards, so I wanted to find some new ways to use them.

I used the papers from the Summer paper pad, and I layered the die cuts before cutting the whole thing down with a slimline die!!! I cut it to 8"x3".
It's a great way to use your dies and highlight these gorgeous patterned papers.

Once I had my layered slimline panel, the rest of the card came together really quickly. I layered the panel onto a scalloped die cut that is the full 8.5" x 3.5" of a standard Slimline card.

For my sentiment, I added a stacked up celebrate die cut, and a sub sentiment from the pre printed sentiments available at T4TD.

A few white enamel dots round the design off nicely! 😁

Thanks so much for spending this time with me!

I hope you like my card and feel inspired to stretch your own supplies!

Have a lovely, happy, safe & wonderful week!!!

Stay Crafty!

Trick or Treat!

Hello all friends, Claudia  here.  Today with these two very fun lollipop cards. I literally love this set  Spooky Circles Tags  I love this kitty, the ghost , but the spider? Really adorable. 
This set is paired with the Simple Circle Dies . die cut set which I think is absolutely essential in our craft room! 

As a base for my card I used the pad  Sweet Summer Paper Pad . I think a card like this is very nice to give to our children or to decorate the basket of candy, do not you think? I hope you like my inspiration. 

            I hope you like my inspiration. I wish you a wonderful week.
