Cake, cake, cake....!!

 Hey Tea timer friends...

It's DT Ashlee here today, Who's ready for some more inspiration using the super duper cute Hooray Hamster set (and co-ordinating dies)?!

For this card I die cut multiple of the Eat the cake sentiment from cardstock I had embossed using my WOW! embossing trio Birthday cake. Colours are Blue icing, Cake and Candles which I thought was very fitting to use with this sentiment!!

Once I die cut each embossed piece I backed it with the shadow cut from black cardstock before adding to the card base with foam tape so they popped up off the card!

I stamped, coloured and die cut three of the Hamsters and gave them all little party hats because what's a party without a fun hat right?!...

Images were coloured using a mix of Copic and Spectrum noir trio markers!!
I love colouring with different alcohol markers, have you tried some?

To complete the card I added some orange and blue sequins in a variety of sizes....

I hope you enjoyed my new card for today. I'm hanging out for my new release T4T goodies to arrive so hopefully soon I will have some inspiration for you using the amazing new release products...

Hi, Friends! Lauren here and I'm back with a new video tutorial on YouTube! This month I using some of my favorite new products from the latest release. Can you spot the Popping Popcorn Stencil, Movie Night Stamps with Coordinating Dies, Stitched Window Cover Die and the Hey, Hello, Hi Dies?

In today's video I will share with you how I created my background and share how I laid out my design. There is a lot of layering in this card, but you can easily remove some layers by gluing elements of this card with glue rather than foam adhesive.

New Home A2 card

Hi Tea Timers!

How are you enjoying the new release? I had a blast making the samples and I can't wait to share all my projects with you! 

Today I'm taking you through how I made this New Home A2 card.

For my background I used the Sweet Summer and Joyful Winter paper pads. They are super versatile and work in many combinations. I went for the wood effect for the wall paper and a stripy one for the floor. I mounted the pattern paper on an A2 card base, leaving a thin white border all around.

Next, I stamped the couch, lamp and window from Home is where the heart is stamp set and coloured them in. I used the matching dies to cut them and added some white highlights. I added them to my card base using foam tape.

For the sentiment I used the New Home Sentiment Die and cut the shadow in white card stock. For the sentiment I used a yellow cardstock and die cut it 3 times. I glued them together and then used the negative from the sentiment die to help me glue them on the shadow in the right places. 

I glued the sentiment at the top of the card and used a white gel pen to add some extra details.

I hope you like today's card and I can't wait to see what you create with the new release. If you've not had a chance to get your hands on any of the new products yet there's still time and I also have a 10% discount code - T4TMIKI10.

Until next week!

Paw Print Slimline Frame with Pawsome Dies

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Monday! I am ecstatic to take part in my very first release with Time for Tea. If you've seen the new items in the shop AND the amazing projects so far from the Design Team, you already know that every single product is a must have!

In my last blog, I created my own frame using just a circle die. Today I am back using the same technique, but this time with a slimline panel and the new Pawsome die set.

Products Used:

I first cut out two slimline panels from white cardstock using the largest die from the Slimline Scalloped Trio Circle Nesting Die set. I then took the largest and medium paw print dies from the new Pawsome Dies set and eyeballed where I wanted it to go. 

I decided on having the large paw go in the middle and the middle sized paw on either side of the large print. I decided to go with a simple blend on the paw print panel so not to take away from the pattern. I blended Peacock Feathers, Salvaged Patina, Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn.

For the second slimline panel, I first blended Tattered Rose onto it. I then took the new Pawsome Prints stencil and blended Saltwater Taffy and Worn Lipstick. I then stamped and diecut the three cats from the Purrfect Day and Kitty Capers die set, along with the image of the book and cactus.

I used the following Copic Markers to color the images:

  • Cats: YR00, YR12, YR14, YR16
  • Cactus: YG21, YG23
  • Book: R20, R22
  • Tree branch and leaves: E11, E13, YG11, YG13

To assemble the card, I used foam tape to adhere the paw panel to the back panel. I heat embossed the sentiments onto pink cardstock and trimmed them down. I then used foam adhesive squares to adhere the cats inside each paw print.

I hope you enjoyed this blogpost and will use this technique to create your own slimline frames as well. Make sure to check out the rest of the release and don't forget to use the code T4TRANDY10 at checkout for some savings. I hope you have an amazing day!

Memorykeeping in a travelnotebook.

Hello creative friends,
I just love all the stamps and how versitile they are.
I have used different stamps and combined them in making this page documenting my family of origin.
I made this travelnotebook using some scrapbook paper and the goal is to fill it with memories from the past.

The word loved is not in the stamp set, but I used the word love and added the d to make the word loved.

The & sign is a metal die, I added some ink to the die and used it as a template and made some embroidery for extra textures.

I really hope you like this project and that I have inspired you to use and combine all those amazing stamps.

Lots of love

Hi, Hey, Hello

Good afternoon Teatimers,

I'm here saying hello to the new release on this beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. Jo has knocked it out of the park yet again with this new release, so many fabulous stamp sets and dies it was so hard to choose what to start with. 

For my card I decided to keep it simple, but give it impact using the fab big and bold "Hey, Hi, Hello" sentiment dies.

To start my card I cut a selection of different coloured cars to 2cm wide pieces and stuck to a piece of copy paper. I then took the A2 Layering Dies to cut a panel.

I used the lovely Flirty Flowers stencil and some white ink to create a pattern over the panel. 

I die cut each word 3 times from white card and stacked to give dimension, adding the background border in velum. I finished off with a few clear sequins randomly placed around the card.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Life without you would be a Cat-astrophe!

 Happy Saturday Teatimer's the new release is finally in the Time for Tea Shop and wow what a release not only in size but in also in cuteness! The cheeky kitties have to be my favourite, so needless to say they were the first ones I coloured up. 

I used the Stitched Window Die to create a shelving unit and added the kitties from the both the Kitty Capers and Purrfect Day stamp and Die sets. I love how the furry ginger kitty is like it wasn't me whilst the other kitty is watching whilst there's milk spilling the milk over that poor grumpy kitty underneath. 
The two stamp sets work so well together but you still have so many images in each set alone to create a super fun scene. Underneath the images I used the new Tiger Stripes stencil to create a subtle wood effect behind. It just gives a little more detail so the background is not so plain but subtle enough to take over the card. 
I hope you like my card for today don't forget to check out the Time for Tea Shop for more inspiration and see the full release and if anything catches your eye you can get 10% off using code T4TNATALIE10. Have a great weekend and happy crafting!
