Big Birthday Wishes

 Good afternoon everyone, 

Happy Sunday, Lyndsey here and today I'm sharing some inspiration from our new summer release that went live on Thursday. If you haven't seen it yet (why not!?!) you need to check it out. Jo has once again worked her magic with an amazing selection of adorable images and fabulous die sets. This cute card has been made with the fabulous Birthday Bear stamp and die set.

To start as always I stamped and coloured my images using my Spectrum Noir markers (colours listed below in order of lightest to darkest)

Bear Body - EB1, EB2, GB8, GB10 

Bear Stomach and Nose - GB10, EB3, EB8, 

Balloon (red) - CR7, CR9, CR11, DR7

Balloon (blue) - TB1, TB3, TB4, TB5

Balloon (yellow) - CT1, CT2, CT4, GB5 

Butterflies - PP1, PL2, LV1

So I decided to make a little scene card and this little fella if off to surprise his friend with a bunch of brightly coloured balloons.

I used the 2nd largest of the A2 Layering Dies to cut a piece if white card, and used the Slimline Scene Builder Stencil and Peacock Feathers distress ink to create my background.

I cut some grass strips from green card using the Landscape Edge Dies and added the cute little picket fence from the Windmill Add On Dies.

The Big Birthday Wishes Die was cut from black card 4 times for dimension and added towards the top section of the card.

I finished off adding a few flying critters in the sky.

August Challenge - Mood Board

   Hello everyone! 

It's time for the August challenge at Time For Tea Designs!

Thank you to everyone who joined in with the July Challenge. The winners will be announced on 15th August.

We've a wonderful Summer mood board to inspire you this month. It may be the colours, the patterns, the textures, the images or just the whole summer vibe that talks to you. We're so looking forward to finding out!

Just remember to include a T4TD product as your focal point.

We're delighted to welcome June's DT pick Krealotte as a guest for this new challenge.

Krealotte is an amazing colourist and has created the most gorgeous scene for the Lucky Ducks to play in.  

Even her gingham card mat reflects the mood board!

Thank you so much Krealotte for agreeing to guest with the T4TD August Challenge.

And of course I've joined in with a card too.

It was the colours that reached out to me first and especially the grass. So I started by using some of the Brighter Days papers and the Landscape Edges and Inverted Scallop Frame dies.

I created a summer sky using the Slimline Scene Builder stencil and then added in the main images from Bears Picnic and some smaller elements and a sentiment from Blooming Bunnies.

I really hope the ant doesn't steal too much of the picnic!

So now it's over to you. Check out our How to Play page as a reminder of how to play along. And here's a little reminder about the prizes.

We're so looking forward to seeing you link your entries on the challenge blog - HERE.

Have a Cool Birthday!


Happy Saturday Teatimers! So what did you think of the new release, What's on your wish list or did have to have it all? 
I just love the Cool Critters set I love the little kitty with their Twister Ice lolly and I couldn't resist giving the racoon a little Fab lolly. 
To make my card I stamped out all the images from the Cool Critters stamp set, I always do three of each so while I have my pens out I can colour up a few at a time. This always helps when you need a quick card later on as they are already cut and coloured up and ready to go. 
There wasn't a lot of fancy colouring I just added some dots for texture on the ice cream. Then to make the Fab lolly I used my coloured Gelly Roll pens to add the sprinkles then cut them out with the coordinating dies 
Going with the Twister theme I really wanted to create a fun summer background with the Slimline Candy Stripes die unfortunately this is no longer available in the shop at the minute if you haven't got it  though you could use and striped die or maybe a striped stencil. I cut the die out with white cardstock, pink and green paper and then out of white fun foam. I love using fun foam as an alternative to foam tape when it's quite a fiddly die to stick. I stuck the white card onto the foam tape using cosmic shimmer glue.
I made up a white card base just a little wider than the die and stuck my foam base straight onto that. Next I just laid and stuck in my coloured pieces in a pink, green and then leave a gap pattern. 
I was just going to stick my critters and van straight on top but I'd gone for the same twister colour scheme for the Ice Cream Van and it blended into the background too much. To counteract this I used one of the circle dies from the new Simple Circle Dies to cut out a velum circle which I popped underneath this just mutes the background colours a little so your focus is on the Ice Cream Van. 
Once the van was in place I popped on my critters and added my sentiment which I white heat embossed onto black cardstock and cut out with the coordinating dies. I just love how Time for Tea coordinating dies cut out the sentiment too. 
I hope you like my card for today the new release is just super fun if you would like to pick any of it up in the shop or anything else you can get 10% off your order using code T4TNATALIE10
Have a great weekend and I will see you same time next week 💓

Here's The (Giant) Scoop


Happy Friday, DT Annalisa here. I am so excited to show my first card using the brand new July release. It is filled with so many goodies, from stamp sets to stencils, number and alphabet dies and a paper pad! I am featuring the Sundae Sweeties Clear Stamp Set and the Sweet Summer 6x6' Paper Pad, which is gorgeous for my card. I feel like I say that about every paper pad Jo releases!

What is extra special about this particular paper pad, is that I created the background coloured panels in some of the designs in the pack, including the one I used on my card! It is very exciting for me to have some of my artwork used in this way. 

I stamped, coloured (with Copics) and die cut my kitty holding the giant ice cream cone, as well as the popsicles from the Cool Critters Clear Stamp Set. To add sprinkles to the ice cream, I used the small circle in the Birthday Bear Clear Stamp Set and stamped it using Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide. 

For the back panel, I used the Mini Slimline Scallop Dies to die cut out some white card stock using the largest die in the set. I added colour to this using my BG13 Copic marker to match the colours on the popsicle. I also die-cut out the scalloped frame using the same die set.  

I cut down the patterned paper so that it fits behind the frame, and used liquid glue to add it to the blue-green background. I then added the white scalloped frame, followed by the kitty and ice creams. I stamped the sentiment from "Cool Critters" and cut it out with the
coordinating dies and then added it to the card using some foam tape to add dimension. To complete the card, I added some white gel pen highlights and stickles to the cherry for some sparkle.

Cherry On Top

Hello crafty friends, DT Kitty here. So I hope you are all enjoying the brand new releases - aren't they fabulous! I know the whole team have had a ball creating with them all. Here is my first creation using some of the new releases, I had to create a shaker card of course!!

I started off by creating by background first. I blended Peacock Feathers & Twisted Citron Distress Inks into a smooth blend. I stamped the confetti from the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set randomly onto the blue part to add a little detail to the background. I used the Sundae Sweeties Stamp Set for the images and sentiment. I coloured them with Copics then used the Sundae Sweeties Die Set to cut them out. I created my shaker frame using the Smile Inverted Scallop Frame Dies. I added my acetate and sequins then used a piece of patterned paper from the Sweet Summer Paper Pad at the back of the panel. I assembled everything onto the card, attaching the images with foam pads to make them pop!

As always do feel free to use my DT discount code T4TKITTY10 which gives you 10% off your order over on the website.

Thank you for checking out my card today and I hope you are loving the release. Don't forget to share your creations over on our Facebook Group.

Celebrate! It's your birthday!

Hello crafty friends! Today it's new release day here at Time for Tea Designs and it's a really yummy one!

Making my card I started ink blending a rectangle panel with the "Diamond Burst" stencil and squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink.

I then cut a white frame with the biggest die from the "Smile Inverted Scallop Frame" die set, I glued on the card base and I splattered with a bit of ground espresso Distress Oxide ink loosened with water.

I stamped images from the new "Hello Cupcake" stamp set, I colored them with alcohol markers and I cut them with coordinating dies.

I also die cute three times the "celebrate" word from the "Large Scallop Celebrate Frame" die set (two from white cardstock and one from white glitter cardstock). I glued them one above the others and I colored it with brown alcohol markers.

I put everything together with a mix of liquid glue and foam tape, I added a sentiment from the stamp set and that's all.

I hope you'll like this card and enjoy the new release 'cause it's really so sweet and adorable.

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

Lucky Duck !

Hello all Tea Timers, how are you doing this week? It's so hot here and we are all looking for a cool place to stay. My card today is inspired by this.  

 I chose this set Lucky Duck to recreate my scene, a lake and a happy duck. 

I did the whole scene in one layer using masking and coloured with alcohol markers.

 To give a more intense touch to the shade of the sky I used Distress Oxide.
  I hope you like my inspiration!!! 

 I remind you that this is the week of the new release and Jo has prepared a Facebook live  for us to present it to you and have the chance to win !!
