Forest Friends at Christmas

DT Annalisa here and today I am sharing a happy forest Christmas scene which I created using several of the latest Time for Tea Designs stamps and dies. Just looking at this card makes me smile - just look at all of those happy critters!
For the background I applied Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks to some white card stock using the new awesome Blending Brushes from Time for Tea! These brushes make applying Distress Ink evenly a lot easier.

I added some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste over the Magical Snowflake Stencil to create a snowy background. For the snowy hills I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Boarders die set. I added some extra snow hills using the Lawn Fawn Sandy Beach Accents dies.

I stamped and coloured the elements using copics. The tree, Christmas hat and coffee cup are from the Pawsome Christmas stamp set. The Deer and North Pole sign are from the Christmas Deer stamp and die set. I also used some Lawn Fawn stamps for the squirrels, nuts and presents (Cheery Christmas and Nutty or Nice).

For the sentiment, I used the Merry Sentiment Die and cut it out of some Colorbok Metal Prismatic Foil Paper. It is hard to see in the picture but there are tiny stars in the gold paper that glimmer. The 'Christmas' came from the Say Anything Stamp Set.  To finish up the card I added some Crystal Stickles.

Warm Winter wishes

Hello everyone!
DT Anila here with some Christmas inspiration. 
A simple and quick Christmas card with not much colouring involved. 

I have used the Warm winter wishes stamp set and the Coordinating dies for my card. 

Here is the card.

I stamped the baubles on a watercolor paper multiple times. Coloured them with Zig markers and die-cut them using the Coordinating die.
I used the Christmas tree die directly to cut the tree. I die-cut it in two shades of green -Light and dark. 

I layered them one over the other by offsetting the top one a little bit. Using a glitter pen I drew the lines on the top layer. 
On a card base, I drew a line in a black marker   for the lights/baubles. Arranged and pasted them in place.
I stuck the tree in place and stamped the sentiment.

That's it!

Thanks for stopping by

Merry Christmouse Card

Hello. DT Katrina hereToday I am sharing a card featuring some brand new products from Time For Tea Designs.

To start the card I took a piece of white cardstock and the 'treemendous Christmas' stencil and used a blender brush to blend Distress Oxide ink in Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron over the stencil.
I stamped and coloured the little mouse from the 'Woodland Critters' stamp set with my Copic Markers and used the co-ordinating die to cut him out. And gave him a little Santa hat.
I took the 'Merry' word die, cutting the outline shadow from the top section from the background panel and also from a piece of white card and the word from red card.
I stamped the Christmas sentiment from the 'say anything' stamp set and used the co-ordinating strip die to cut it out.
Next is assembling the card. I took the background panel and adhered it to a card base. Then I attached the mouse and Merry sentiment with liquid glue. I used foam pads to adhere the Christmas sentiment and to complete the card I decorated some of the trees using a black pen and some small gems.

Merry Christmas (deer)

Hello! This is DT member Annalisa. Today I am showcasing FIVE elements from the new release; the Christmas Deer stamp set (and coordinating dies), the Magical Snowflakes stencil, the Merry sentiment die set and the Say Anything stamp set.

For the background, I applied some Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink to some white card stock. I then spread some white Wendy Vecchi embossing paste over the stencil. I stamped, coloured and die cut the Christmas Deer elements and then glued them to the background once the embossing paste had dried. I added some white jell pen for some extra detail to the stamps after I had coloured them.

For the Merry sentiment, I die cut the word from some metal prismatic foil paper from Colorbok. I adhered this to the outline die of the word which I had die cut with some white card stock. This was then glued to the snowflake area above the deer. For the second part of the sentiment, I used the Say Anything stamp set to white heat emboss 'Christmas' onto some black card stock. I then die cut the word out using smaller of the accompanying rectangular dies which come for FREE with the stamp set! These die cuts are so great for smaller words like this as they are always so hard to trim because they are so tiny!

I really love the latest release and I am looking forward to making beautiful cards with them!

Christmas Tags using Hexagon Nesting Dies & Wow Embossing Powder

Happy Friday everyone!

Jo here with another catch up post after last nights FB Live. 

Do watch the video below. This is the edited version of last nights tutorial so its easier to watch if you're short of time but want some inspiration for your Christmas Tag making!
You will also get a sneak peek at some new products arriving in store next week!!

I absolutely loved making these adorable tags and Ant was a fantastic assistant as always.

 In this tutorial Ant did some colouring with Copics for me, colouring all the critters, using graduating shades to create depth to his characters. He did a great job!

We cut all our tags from our Hexagon Nesting Dies, layering up the largest with the next one down in size. We used some brand new & totally gorgeous cardstock that we will be sharing with you next week so stay tuned!! :)

I stamped, coloured and die cut the background tree scene which is part of the Christmas Deer Stamp & Die set.

You can see Ant also had some fun giving his dog a 'Mario' style moustache!! :D Very cute!!

We created some sparkly snowy backgrounds for our scene using WOW embossing powders sprinkled directly onto our cardstock and melted with my heat gun.

These beautiful Powders will be available in store next week!

Finally I added some highlights with my White Gelly Roll Pen and added some extra sparkle with my Stardust Stickles.

I am so pleased with how these turned out and they were really simple to make too. I'll definitely be making some more.

If you'd like to see what we get up to during the Live show then please do watch us on FB Live at 8pm every Thursday. The more the merrier.

All the products I used that are currently available in the shop are below.

Christmas Deer Shaker Card

Hi DT Sharon here.

The new Winter stamps are now available in the T4T store!

I've made a snowy shaker card using the "Christmas Deer" set.
Image may contain: text

I made the rectangular shaker box with the "scalloped frame" dies. The background inside the shaker is a new stencil called "Magical Snowflakes". I stamped each of the deer from the set and coloured them with alchol pens and then used my scan and cut to cut them out. I also did the same with the north pole sign and adhered it to the outside of the frame. 

The "Celebrate" is a new sentiment die and I just die cut that from white cardstock and arranged it on top of the frame. 

For the main background I used the little snowflakes from the Christmas Deer set and white embossed them and then inked over them with some distress oxide inks. 

My poor little deer at the front looks like he's fallen over in the snow!!!
