We knew you could do it

Hello and welcome! Annalisa here and for the hop today I used the Hooray Hamsters and Pandamonium Party (balloons and present) stamp sets and the Hooray A6 Panel die. All of these will be available on Sunday, March 1st!

The start of the hop can be found at the Time For Tea Designs Instagram account. Don't miss out on your chance to be entered into a prize draw to win goodies from the New Release worth approx £55 ($95 CND, $70 US)!

I stamped and coloured the stacked up Panda scene on some Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock and then fussy cut it out. For the background, I die cut some paper with the Hooray A6 Panel die and coloured it with some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. I added some water droplets to the background and once it was dry I adhered the hamster tower to it using liquid glue.

To finish the card I added the 'we knew you could do it' sentiment on a banner which I popped up with some foam tape.

Be sure to check out the rest of the IG hop by checking out my Instagram account.

Don't forget I have a 10% discount code for the T4T store which can be used on anything, anytime and has no time limit - T4TANNALISA10

Create Pandemonium!

Hi Guys, I’m super excited to be joining Time for Tea Designs as a design team member and for my first post I get to share a sneak peek of the brand new release! You are going to love it its totally adorable in keeping with all things Time for Tea. These cute pandas are so much fun to ink up and great for quick cards as you can add as little or as much detail as you want.
As you all probably know by now I love making scene cards so I grabbed my scalloped rectangle die and cloud stencil and began creating my background. I used Tumbled Glass oxide and the Cloud Stencil to create the sky then using the same stencil to create some grass at the bottom using Twisted Citron distress oxide, blending with my Time for Tea blender brushes.
I stamped out my sentiment using my Misti so I could make sure it was straight and I got a crisp print. Then it was time to ink up the pandas and all of their cute accessories. I stamped out the pandas and added some shading with warm greys Copic Markers and a little pink for some rosy cheeks. Then coloured up the bamboo and accessories colouring with the same shades of red and green as I didn't want to distract too  much from the pandas using lots of colours and added them to my image.
I hope you like my card for today I had so much fun colouring up this scene be sure to keep checking our posts throughout the week for more peeks and inspiration.

Hello everyone!
DT Anila on the blog today.
I am sharing a sneak peek of some awesome new products set to be released on 1st March on the website.

Here is my card!

My card uses pattern paper from the gorgeous paper pack called Rainbow brights.
This is a little shaker card. The shaker window square is made using the Quilted square nesting dies.
The images and the stamps are from the Pandamonium party stamp set.

I stamped the images and coloured them using Zig markers. Die-cut the Panda and the balloons using the co-ordinating dies. I die-cut a square window for my shaker. I have used a sheet of vellum to cover the window. Stamped the sentiment. 
On a card base, I adhered the pattern paper. Foam mounted the shaker window with some heart shakers from my stash. Adhered the Panda and the balloons. I covered the balloons with Glossy accents to add further interest to my card.


Thank you for stopping by!
Hope you like my card.

Keep crafting!!


Toucan Anniversary Card

Hello. DT Katrina here sharing a card featuring one of my favourite Time For Tea Designs stamp sets 'Toucan Do This' along with one of the masking stencils.

To start the card I took the small circle masking stencil and adhered it to the bottom right of my background panel of white card with a small amount of tape runner. I then used the beautiful blender brushes to add Distress Oxide inks Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violer and Picked Raspberry. 
Once my ink was blended I splattered some white gold watercolour paint over the background, carefully removed the stencil and set aside to dry.
Next I stamped and coloured the Toucans, branch and leaves using my Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments from the Time For Tea Designs Say Anything stamp set on black card and cut them to small banners.
I used a tape runner to adhere all the images to the card panel. I then trimmed the panel down to leave a thin white border when adhered to my card base.
I hope you like the card. 
Take care for now. 

Slimline Fairy Birthday Wishes

Hi crafty friends! DT Jennifer here with a pastel springtime scene for today's inspiration. 

To create this project, I first cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock to 3.75 x 7.75 for the stenciled cloud layer. I rounded off the corners using my corner rounding punch. Then I laid out the spotlights using my masking stencils from Time for Tea Designs - Small Circle and Heart Grid.

Once I knew where I wanted the spotlights, I inked them in ombre fashion using Distress Oxide inks and Blender Brushes. I masked them off with the negative of the stencil (included with the stencil) and added the ombre cloud effect in purple shades using the Sunny Side Up stencil.

I stamped all fairies and ran them through my Scan N Cut and cut them all out. Then I colored everything that needed it, added Wink of Stella to the wings and white paint pen polkadots to the dresses. I die cut the stitched clouds, then started on the layout.

After everything was attached with foam tape for dimension, I attached the background of the scene to a piece of 3.825 x 7.825 white cardstock with 1/16" foam tape. The large sequins are from Kat Scrappiness and the small ones are from Craftin' Desert Divas. I used my picker upper and a dab of liquid Nuvo adhesive to adhere them to the card.

I hope you enjoyed my project today. I have a discount code for you to use - T4TJENNIFER10 will save you 10% on your order from the Time For Tea shop!

A Simple Thank you - Using Embossing Pens with your Stencils Video Tutorial

Hi Jo here with the details of our FB Live Video. 

Be sure to check out the video below for details on how we achieved the effects on our project today.

For my card today I used some new products from Thirsty Brush & Co. I was lucky enough to be given some of Claire's new embossing powders and the Luminosity Starter Kit which includes a really great dual tipped embossing pen.
As soon as I saw it I wanted to create this project!

First of all I inked my background with Distress Oxide Inks and my Beautiful Blender Brushes. I then used the pen to outline the design from the Unbe-leaf-able Stencil. 

I applied the Gold Digger Embossing powder and set with my heat gun. The shine was stunning.

I then cut my 'Thanks' sentiment from velum & our Liquorice Black cardstock.

My secondary sentiment is from the 'Say Anything' Stamp set and I used the Luminosity Embossing Ink & White Powder to stamp and set it.

I love how bright & fresh this card turned out. The shine of the embossing powder is beautiful and the pattern almost looks like Peacock Feathers.

I hope you enjoyed the card & the tutorial video.

Don't forget to join us for another FB Live next week where we will be showing you some of the New Release for March. Tune in Thursday at 8pm.


Fairy Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday! DT Annalisa here, today's creation features the new Fairy Garden stamp set. There are a lot of great little images in the set that I thought would be great for a wreath around one of the cute fairies.

I stamped and coloured the fairy and the smaller stamps with copic markers. I used a light grey copic for the circle and added some white circles using a white Gelly Roll Pen. I used the 'fairy happy birthday' for the sentiment and added the exclamation point with the heard at the end.

I adhered the scene to some card stock and added a border on the top and the bottom using some patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. I used a scalloped border punch I have had forever for the top section.

I layered the largest frame from the Smile Sentiment and Scalloped Frame Die Set on top to complete the scene. I used some Stickles on the small stamps and the fairy's wings for some shine.

I hope you enjoyed this card. If you are interested in purchasing any Time for Tea Designs products be sure to Use code T4TANNALISA10 when you visit the shop to get 10% discount off your entire order.

Hooray Spring is on its way!

DT Annalisa here. Spring is less than a month away so I am sharing a happy spring card featuring the adorable Hip Hop Horray stamp and die set. I decided to make this a slider card because the little trampoline and the bunny were made for this.

To start I used a clouds stencil, some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide and my Beautiful Blender Brush to create the sky background. Next, I created some grass using Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink and some water droplets. I cut the grass with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Borders die set. To get the stitched lines around both the grass and the sky I cut them both using the rectangle from Mama Elephant's Peek A Frame Creative Cuts die set. I added the sun and the clouds using the Box Clever Die Set. These smaller elements in the die set are so useful on my card projects.

I stamped and coloured two bunnies, carrots other some other cute elements in the Hip Hop Hooray stamp set. The little ladybug and one of the butterflies are from the Fairy Garden stamp set.

I used a slider die I had in my stash to cut out the slider area in the sky. I used a penny on the back end and adhered it to the jumping bunny to create the slider portion of the card.

I used the "Hip Hop Hooray" for the sentiment. I like that this sentiment can be used for anything you want it to!

Head over to Time For Tea Designs and use discount code T4TANNALISA10 to get 10% off your whole order including the new release stamps.
