Sending you snail MAIL - CAS card
Hello Tea Timers,
It's Miki here and today I have a CAS card to share with you.
I started off by working on my background. I used masking tape to mask 3 sides of an A2 white panel. This will create a border around the card. I then used the Cracked Pistachio distress oxide and faded it out towards the top of my card. To add some details and a bit of sparkle I sprayed the background with a mix of water and perfect pearls and used a paper towel to pick up some of the droplets.
Next, I stamped and die cut the images from the You Got Mail set. I coloured them in using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and added some white highlights for extra details. I then embossed the sentiments in white on black cardstock and used the matching dies to cut them out.
I added the images and sentiments on the panel using foam tape and glued it on an A2 card base.
Today's card is super simple, but it was a lot of fun making it. You can use my code T4TMIKI10 for 10% off the whole site.

Happy Mothers Day
Good afternoon Teatimers,
It's Mothers Day here in the UK today and so I thought I'd share the card I made for my lovely mom. I decided to use these sweet little bunnies from the Blooming Bunnies Stamp Set, they are just perfect for a spring themed card.
To start I stamped and coloured my images using my new Ohuhu Markers (still trying to figure out blends but oh how I love those brush tips!)
Bunnies - WG050, WG01, WG3, WG4
Wheelbarrow - Y230, Y11, Y8
Red - R1, R3, R8
Pink - RV260, RV270, R12
Blue - B120, B250
Yellow - Y3, Y2
Green - CG070, NG06, NG09
For my background I die cut the Stitched Slopes Slimline Die from white card, keeping the the segments in place I masked off the bottom of the card and used the Slimline Scene Builder Stencil with Salty Ocean distress ink to create a sky. Masking off the top of the card I added distress ink in Twisted Citron to the bottom of the card, using the stencil again and Mowed Lawn distress ink added in the grass shape.
I die cut the Tree and Fence from the Windmill Add On Die Set from white card and added colour to the tree using my markers. I added these to the 3rd segment of the card.
At this point I decided I wanted to make my frame stand out so I die cut another of the Slimline die once more and added this to the tip of the panel.
I added the bunnies in the bottom half of the card underneath the fence and tree. I then used the MUM die to cut out the letters 3x from red card and the shadow from white card. This was added to the top of the card and the 'Happy Mothers Day' sentiment stamped underneath.
To finish off the card I added a few randomly placed Enamel Dots around the images.

Cute Coffee Card
Hello DT Vic popping in today! I’m sharing a fun coffee theme card with you today.
I used the Coffee Lover Clear Stamp Set for my images. I stamped these out and coloured them in with my copics. I then used the Coordinating dies to die cut them out.
For my background I used the Coffee Beans 6x6 Stencil and the Coffee Stains 6x6 Stencil. I ink blended both of these onto some white card. I then die cut a piece of black card using the fun Square Label Dies.

Hello and happy Friday! Annalisa here today, have you seen the amazing sale going on over at Time For Tea Designs!? The SPRING CLEAN SALE is on until Monday, March 28th with 70% OFF selected items. Use SPRINGCLEAN22 at checkout, and your discount will be applied. I used several die sets, including Spring Blooms (part of the sale), to create this spring card.
To start, I used the Spring Blooms dies to cut out several flowers from coloured card stock. Next, I die-cut the letters 'Spring' using Anthony's Alpha Dies from some blue card stock. I added some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide using my Beautiful Blender Brush to the bottom of the letters. I also cut the bunny elements using the Bunny Builder Dies using pink, black and white card stock and assembled the bunny using liquid glue.
I had a fence cut from white card stock in my stash (you could use the one in the Windmill Add On) and ink blended on some Weathered Wood Distress Oxide.
I used the Mini Slimline Scallop Dies to die-cut the scalloped frame and the outer panel. I added Dusty Concord Distress Oxide to the outer panel using my Beautiful Rainbow Blender Brush and then adhered it to a 6.5 by 3.5-inch card base.
I cut down a piece of yellow patterned paper from the Sweet Summer 6x6' Paper Pad and added some Wild Honey Distress Oxide to the edges. I glued the fence to this paper and then both of these to the purple panel.
I added foam tape to the back of the scalloped frame and adhered it to the purple panel. Next, I added the flowers using liquid glue. I stuck the bunny down using a combination of foam tape and liquid glue. For the letters, I added tiny pieces of foam tape to the back of each letter and added them to the panel in an off-kilter fashion - this was SUPER hard for my logical brain!
I cut out 'let's celebrate' from the Brighter Days Sentiment Cards | White on Grey and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.
To complete the card, I used my white gel pen to add dashed lines to the purple panel and some white accents to various elements on the card.

Cafe Critters are a REAL TREAT!
Infinity Shaker HACK | Plus New Distress Colour | Video with Tasha
Hey Crafty People!
It's Tasha and I'm here today sharing three background techniques using Distress Oxide inks, including the brand new colour; Saltwater Taffy.
Then once we have our backgrounds I'm going to make an Infinity, or full panel, shaker card using products that you will already have lying round your craft room! ;)
I really hope that you enjoy the video! Here are more, close up images of the three cards that I created in today's video tutorial!
I'll also have all of the products I used linked below, if you're interested in anything that I've used today.
For this card, I created a background with a stencil for a quick & fun look that can be customised in literally millions of ways!
Check out the stencils we have in the store, choose your favourite ink colours and get creative!!!
I finished this with this adorable Panda from the Tea-riffic Pals stamp & coordinating dies.
This background is just straight ombre blend, I absolutely love making these backgrounds as I find ink blending therapeutic but I know that it isn't for everyone.
To add a little texture, I spritzed some water over the finished panel.
This one is finished so simply, with a vellum panel cut using the Love Heart Cover Panel die set and then the Big Birthday Wishes die.
I stacked a white die cut on top of a holographic, slightly offsetting it to form a drop shadow.
I really love how fun that looks!
I must admit, this is my favourite of the bunch!!!
The ink smooshing background is so vibrant and fun!!!
I finished it with the Stitched Joy word die and some cuties from the Stinkin' Cute stamp & die set. I stamped them in Copic friendly ink and then coloured them in really simply.
I hope that you found some inspiration in today's tutorial and we'd love to see if you create anything inspired by this!
I hope you have a lovely, happy, safe week!

You are TEA-rrific Shaker Card
Hello Tea Timers,
It's Miki here and today I'm back with a shaker card, yay! I know shakers are scary for some people, but they're so easy to make.
I started off by stamping the images. I used the kitty in the mug and the sugar cubes from the Tearrific Pals stamp set. I coloured them in using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, cut them with the matching dies and added some white highlights. I then embossed the sentiment in white and used the matching die to cut it out.
Next, I used the Line 'Em Up Stencil to create my background. I ink blended it in Spun Sugar.
Now, for the shaker I used the Wide Stitched Frame die and cut the largest one from white cardstock. I cut a piece of acetate roughly the same size of the frame and glued it at the back of it. I then added foam tape all around the frame. Make sure there are no gaps, this will ensure your sequins won't fall out! Next, you're going to add many, many sequins to your frame. When you're happy with the amount, remove the release paper from the foam tape and glue down your background.
Next, I made a card base and attached my shaker to it. To finish off the card I added my images and sentiment on top of the shaker with foam tape.
Shakers are so much fun and so easy to make, I hope you give this technique a try! You can use my code T4TMIKI10 for 10% on the shop.

Have a Cool Birthday!

Next, I used Distress Oxides in the colours Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina (sky), Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover (grass) on some white cardstock using my Beautiful Rainbow Blender Brushes. I added some white and water splatter to the panel and set it aside to dry.
I stamped and coloured the ducks from Lucky Ducks and then die-cut them out. I then stamped the sentiment from You’ve Got Mail and die cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Video: Create a Floral Spring Scene with Blooming Bunnies!
Hi, Friends! My name is Lauren and I'm so excited to be a part of the Time for Tea Designs Video Team! I have my first video today and I thought I would I would share a tutorial of a typical card I love to create - a scene with lots of perspective and layering.
