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.

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.

Under the weather foiled shaker card
I have already shared a reel on Saturday showing you how I did the foiling on this card with the Scattered Raindrops stencil without a foiling machine!! I used versamark ink and WOW bonding powder with WOW fab foils to do the rainy background of this shaker.
I used the cat and sentiment from the All Occasions Critters stamp set and coordinating dies and the smallest of the Smile inverted scalloped frame dies to build my shaker part. To build the shaker, I die cut the frame from white cardstock 7 times - did I go overboard? Probably! But I wanted my sequins to move freely, so mission accomplished!

Good afternoon everyone DT Lyndsey here and today I want to share this cute card with you featuring the Hooray Hamster stamp and die set.
I took inspiration from my team mate Lien for this card as it was a perfect excuse to use up some multicoloured strips of card I had left over from another project.
To start I coloured my Hamsters using my Spectrum Noir markers (colours listed below in order of lightest to darkest)
Hamster 1 - EB1, EB2, GB8
Hamster 2 - IG1, IG3, IG5
Hamster 3 - BG1, BG3, BG5
Hamster 4 - TN1, TN2, TN3
Balloon and Hat- LG1, LG3, LG5
Once the images were coloured and die cut, the card was so quick and easy to make. I stacked up my Hamsters on the RH side of a DL card base. I then took a selection of card strips and added them to the LH side of the card so they protrude in at different lengths dependant on the space available and that's it card done!.
I think this is perfect for a fun birthday card and the coloured strips down the side could be changed to give a more tonal effect if required, I just fancied a bit of rainbow today. 🌈

You are Elephantastic Take 2!
Everyone seemed to love my elephant card from the other week so I decided to make a couple more of those. I then mixed it up a little for the other teacher adding a little green to the mix and a different elephant. It adds a more masculine feel but I still like that it has a cuteness to it. Mixing up old designs is a great way to get the ideas flowing and to make quick cards.
For my card you can find all the details for on my previous blog post here just with the change of green oxides and a different elephant. Alongside that though I wanted to make some message sticks to add to my presents. I got three little succulents from IKEA and I wanted to add a little message to them. To do this I used the You are Awesome sentiment die.
I cut the outline out twice once in white card-stock and again in white fun foam and layered them on top of each other. Then for the You are awesome sentiment I coloured up the white cardstock with some Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink and then cut it out. With it being small it's much easier doing it this way around. To make sure my letters were all lined up when adding it onto the foam and card base I used the negative die cut as a template. Laying it over the top and piecing the letters back in that way. Its a bit fiddly but its the best way I've found to get them centred, straight and the same width between the letters. I made three of these one for each plant once the top was all finished I got out my wooden skewers and chopped them down to size I went so they were just a little taller than the plant. To stick them together I used my glue and stuck it at the back if you wanted you could also add a little peg and add a little note underneath but I didn't think about that until after typically lol!
So that's my project finished up for this week I hope you like it those message sticks are perfect for all occasions I've made Christmas ones before, you could also do Happy Birthday ones wherever your imagination takes you.

Lucky Duck Friends
To finish the card, I added the second duck which I stamped, coloured and cut out and applied to the card using some foam tape. I thought the added dimension of the second duck was just the ticket!

Hogs & Kisses
Hello crafty peeps! It's time for my usual weekly post for Time For Tea Designs. It's been insanely hot in my craft room this week so I tried to cool down by making a raining card (mad I know!). Just love these cute piggies...
For this card I used Time For Tea Hogs & Kisses Stamp Set. I coloured my image with Copics and fussy cut him out. I created the background using my Cracked Pistachio & Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. I then used the Scattered Raindrops Stencil and gently blended the inks over the top. I added a layered strip of card to the left side. I used Slimline Postage Stamp Frame Dies to create the postage square and added a little ink over the top. The spotty paper is actually a little sneak peek at one of the new papers in the next release...so keeps your eyes peeled for that! I heat embossed my sentiment onto black card and added some clear bubbles to finish.
Do take advantage of my discount code which is T4TKITTY10 which will give you 10% off your next order at Time For Tea Designs.
That's all from me today, thank you for joining me again and I will be back next week with another creation. Stay cool in the heat everyone and enjoy it if you can!

Smile, let's take a coffee
Hello Tea Timers! Silvia's back today sharing with you a coffee theme slimline card.
I started cutting a white panel with the "Tulip Add-on Horizontal" and the "Slimline Postage Stamp Frame" die sets and I splattered it with a rainbow combination of Distress Oxide inks.
I then glued some cloudy patterned paper from the "Brighter Days" paper pad under the tulips and I die cut a purple panel using the middle die from the "Slimline Scallop Nesting" die set.
I stamped images from the "All Occasion Critters" and "Bears Picnic" stamp sets, I colored them with alcohol markers and I cut them with coordinating dies (you can find them here and here).
Next I die cut the "smile" word from black cardstock with the "Smile Inverted Scallop Frame" die set, I heat embossed in white a sentiment from the "All Occasion Critters" stamp set and I put everything together.
Thank you so much for stopping by taking a peek and remember you can get a 10% off your Time for Tea order with my code, T4TSILVIA10.

Have a mice day!
I coloured all the stamps with a mix of my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and my Ohuhu brush pen markers. I am trying to use the Ohuhu more as that is the only way I can get familiar with the colours and combinations - but it's always hard to change from what you are used to!
I used a bit of vellum behind the oven door so it looks like an oven door, and I put a pie inside!
I used double sided sticky pads to mount the mice and accessories to the panel, and then some fun foam behind the panel to mount it onto a slimline (8.5x3.5") cardbase.
This must be one of my favourite scenes of all times - those guys seem to be having a great time together!

I'm Quackers about you!
Happy Saturday, this week has been so busy and Saturday has come around so fast. This week I got to play with some of the last few releases that I hadn't had a chance to use yet. Just like last week I wanted to create a different look with the dies than just using them as a straight die cut.
I began by cutting out the mini slimline scallop dies and then using that as a template to cut out the size of my back panel. On the back panel I stencilled up some blue clouds using the Slimline Scene Builder Stencil and some Tumbled Glass Distress oxide ink. Then I layered on top of that the Sun Ray Cover Plate Die that I had blended with Squeezed Lemonade and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide Inks. Once that was laid on top I could add the frame I cut using the Mini Slimline Scallop Dies. I made sure not to stick right to the edge on the bottom so I could tuck my little duckies in.
The ducks and dragonfly are from the Lucky Duck Stamp Clear Stamp Set they were really simply coloured with warm grey Copics to add some shading to their white feathers and finished off with some R11 for the cheeks and three little dots using a white gelly roll pen. I cut these out and popped them on my card so I could see where to put my sentiment.
For the sentiment I couldn't stamp straight onto the card as it was different layers but I didn't want to loose the details by adding a block sentiment strip. To get around this I used Velum so you can still see the details underneath, I used Staz on ink for this so that it didn't smudge.
I still felt like it was missing something so that's when I decided to colour up the dragonfly and I added the little heart speech bubble from the Bearing Gifts Clear Stamp Set. I finished my card up by mounting it onto some black cardstock and that was it finished up. I hope this gives you some encouragement and ideas to try new ways with your dies. After all you really want to get the most out of them. If you liked my card today and want to get any of the products or anything else from the shop you can get 10% off using code T4TNATALIE10.
Hope you all have a great weekend and I will see you all next week!

Flying By to say Hi
Hello and happy Friday! Annalisa here, flying by (I wish!) to say hi with this bright summer card featuring the Paper Plane Pals and Hillside Village stamp sets.
I stamped the trees from the Hillside Village down and then stamped the bunny from Paper Plane Pals and then masked him out to stamp the paper plane and the two clouds. I also stamped the birds, the sentiment, the dotted heart lines and the single cloud.
Once everything was stamped, I got to work colouring the scene with my Copic markers. I then die-cut the scene using the Rectangle Stitched Nesting Dies (an older T4T product). I then cut down some black card stock and some plaid patterned paper to add behind the scene.
I adhered the scene to the black panel and the patterned paper using liquid glue and then stuck the group of them to some white card stock.
