What's poppin'

Hello hello everyone!

Ilona poppin' in to show you my latest card with one of my favorite treats: popcorn! I used the sweet cart critters clear stamp set together with some cute critters from the movie night clear stamp set. I thought the sleeping sloth would look absolutely adorable on top of the cart!

So I started by stamping the images and running them through my Scan 'n cut machine. Took my beloved Copic markers to give them some color and added highlights with a white gelpen. Drew the popcorn inside of the cart by hand with a Sakura micron pen.

To create a poppin' sentiment, I used Anthony's Alpha dies and die cut them out of red cardstock and again out of black cardstock. Adhered the black letters to the back of the red letters with just a millimeter difference, to create 'shade'. It makes the letters POP! Then I used black cardstock and white embossing powder with a stamped sentiment from the sweet card critters stamp set to finish the sentence.

The background didn't take too long to create. I die-cut an A6 panel from light blue cardstock and added stars using the Movie Star 6x6" Stencil and Salvaged Patina distress oxide. Trimmed a small black strip as a 'floor' and adhered it on top of the blue starred panel. 

With the help of foam tape I adhered all my critters, the cart, popcorn and sentiment onto the card. And last but certainly not least, added a couple of bright yellow stars!

I hope you like this fun card as much as I do!

DIY Donut Frame: "You're So Sweet!"

 Hi Tea Timers, welcome back to the blog. For this blog post, I wanted to mix one of the new sets with one of the older sets. I really like the image of the critter with the donut in the Warm Hugs stamp set and wanted to create a donut centric card.

Sets used:

(stamp and die bundle available here)
We Go Together Coordinating die set available here

I first stamped out my image of the critter with the donut and used the coordinating die set to cut it out. I then used Copic Markers to color the image.

With the donut image, I stamped it out 16 times and fussy cut them out. I then used Copic Markers to color them as well. I decided on using 4 total color combos for my donuts.

To create my frame, I took an A2 Panel and die cut out the middle using a rectangle die. I then adhered my donuts all around the frame and trimmed off any excess pieces.

Then took another A2 panel and blended the Confetti Stencil with  stencil Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers. 

With the sentiment, I heat embossed it onto aqua cardstock and then die cut it out with the coordinating die set. To assemble my card, I adhered my frame with liquid adhesive onto the background. I then adhered my image and sentiment using foam tape.

All of the items I used are linked above. If you purchase any items, don't forget to use the code T4TRANDY10 at checkout. Happy crafting!

Sweet ATC

Hello with a new project from DT Fabiola with the super sweet new release of the ATC Coin.

 It was used Sweet On You Clear Stamp Set and Simple Circle Dies .

After having stamped and colored the chosen stamps with the alcohol markers and die-cut with the coordinated set, circles were die-cut as the basis for the ATC Coins and smaller circles to simulate the sweets for an ATC, i.e. the little mouse with the jar of candy

 These last circles were also colored with markers.  Then chocolate bars were recreated using squares to match the subject of the cat with the chocolate bar.

 The final result is very sweet for these mini cards.

I hope it inspires you and see you next time,

Cozy sloth card with Kaja

Hi all,

It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I am back with a cute and colorful card.

Take a look:

I started out by creating the background for which I used the Wonky background stencil along with two colors of ink - blue and green. I alternated the colors so the background looks bright and fun. To add some additional focal point, I added some blue and white splatters.

When I was doing this, I made sure that the stencil is as centered as possible, so the card will have a focal point directly in the center.

Next, I stamped and colored the cute little sloth from the brand new Warm hugs stamp set. I colored it in using alcohol markers. For the cup I used yellow and red and for the sloth I went with a simple brown marker.

I finished the coloring off, by adding some white gel pen details.

Then, I stamped out the sentiment in black ink that reads 'you warm my heart' and can be found in Warm hugs stamp set. I positioned it to the top left part of the card base.

To make sure that the sloth stands out enough, I added a piece of vellum that I tore by hand and positioned it between the ink blended background and the sloth.

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

Full moon mole party

Hi time for tea-ers. It is Debby here and this beautiful Friday I want to show you another handmade card. I mix and matched a few Time for tea products, with as end result this slimline mole party scenery.

I knew right away when I saw the peeking mole from the “I really dig you” stampset that I wanted created this card. 

After coloring all the stamps, with my copic markers, I rolled them to my Bigshot and gave the moles some highlights. I also gave the glasses some sparkle with “Wink of Stella”. I put the stamps aside and started with the base of the card. Therefore I needed three pieces of white cardstock which I all cut with my embossing machine in a slimline shape.  Two of those I run to my machine again, with a grass and hill die.  With distress ink I gave these two some color( I mentioned all colors below)

For the background I mask a circle with masking tape and after I placed this on the white slimline I blended some different colors distress into the paper. After I was happy about the night sky I removed the circle and placed the negative mask and gave the moon with distress ink a bright color.

I gave everything some watersplashes and after that was completely dry I put the card together. I finished the card with the “Hey Hello Hi sentiment die set” and the sentiment “it is Your birthday”. 

I hope you like it and until next week.

Colourful Easter Wishes

Happy Friday! DT Annalisa here sharing a colourful Easter card using several Time For Tea Designs products. I love the colourful giant eggs featured on this card.

I used the Simple Square Nesting Dies to die-cut Neenah Metallic cardstock for the back panel, which I glued onto a 5 and 1/4-inch white cardstock base. I used the same simple square nesting dies to cut a 4 and 7/8-inch inner square panel that I ink-blended squeezed lemonade, tumbled glass and kitsch flamingo Distress Oxide over a cloud stencil using my Beautiful Blender Brushes. I added white splatter with a paintbrush, water and Copic opaque white, picked raspberry and peacock feathers Distress Oxide.

I used twisted citron, mowed lawn and rustic wilderness Distress Oxide for the grass.

I die-cut watercolour paper with the Eggstra Special Slimline Add-On Horizontal Die and used the large egg cutouts for this card. I used saltwater taffy, abandoned coral, worn lipstick and picked raspberry Distress Ink on the pink egg; squeezed lemonade and fossilized amber on the yellow egg; and salvaged patina and peacock feathers on the teal egg. 

I pressed the Distress Ink pads onto my glass matt, sprayed the coloured ink with water and pressed the eggs into this to colour them. I added white splatter with a paintbrush, water and Copic opaque white.

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

I sprayed Distress Mica Stain in Cocktail Party onto watercolour paper. Once this dried, I added white splatter and die-cut it using the Easter Wishes Large sentiment die. I cut three layers using this die from white cardstock and glued them together for dimension. I then glued this to the card.

I then added the coloured eggs and critters using a combination of double-sided foam tape and liquid glue.

JOY and sweets!

Hey there Tea-timers...

DT Ashlee here today with a new Time for tea designs creation! 

This one uses the new Sweet on you stamp set (along with co-ordinating dies) from the latest release at T4T.

To make this card I die cut the base using the Wonky windows cover die from p    ink card stock and then backed it with a piece of white card that I had added pink distress oxide ink too...

I die cut the sentiment JOY and adhered that to the first square of the card base. Using the Sweet on you set I stamped a bunch of the images before colouring them with Spectrum noir tri-blend markers. These were die cut using the co-ordinating dies and adhered to the card base using foam tape to add dimension!

To complete the card I added some white highlights to the images along with a touch of pretty sequins...

I hope you like my new card today, thankyou for stopping by. Happy crafting, hugs Ashlee.
