Oval shaped card - using paper pads
Welcome back to the T4TD blog! As promised last week, I am back with a new design idea for using pattern paper in your cards.
I started today's card by die cutting the largest oval die in the Oval Scalloped Nesting Die set twice. I then scored one of them close to the top to make a fold and glued it on the back of the other oval. This created my card base.
Next, I used the oval frame from the same set and die cut the frame twice in white and glued them together for extra dimension. For the background I used one of the designs in the Pawsome Rainbows paper pad and cut it a bit smaller than the outside of my oval frame. I also cut a piece of vellum to the same size and glued them at the back of the frame. By adding the vellum the of the colours on the pattern paper get a bit muted. For the grass I picked a green design from the Gorgeous Gingham paper pad and cut it using the oval frame die. This time I used the negative and cut it with the Landscape Edge Die and glued it on the inside of the frame.I chose to use the Hey there critters stamp set for my critters. I stamped the cute animals and some of the accessories and coloured them in with the Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. I then used the matching dies to cut them out and added some white highlights for details. For the clouds I used the small dies from the Clouds Die set. I lightly ink blended the edges with Tumbled Glass and stamped the hello sentiment on one of them.
I arranged the images on the background and glued them down. Next, I glued the frame on the card front and that's it!
Thanks for tuning in! I hope you like today's card, it was a lot of fun to create. Remember, you can use T4TMIKI10 for 10% off your orders store-wide.

I did some ink blending over the heart inserts of the Heart Grid Masking stencil with Spun Sugar and Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxides and my Beautiful Blender Brushes. I added some white splatter with a paintbrush and some white acrylic paint. I trimmed the panel down to 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches and glued it down to a card base of the same size.
I ink blended Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide onto white cardstock and then used the Hugs Stitched Sentiment Die. I cut the outline of the die into some vellum paper and then used liquid glue to adhere the letters to it.
I stamped, coloured (with Copics), die-cut elements from the Kitty Capers, Purrfect Day and Home Is Where The Heart Is stamp sets. The small heart stamp is from Hogs & Kisses, the heart die cuts are the pieces that were die-cut out of the Flirty Flowers Cover Die. I coloured some of them in BG10. I used the Cloud Dies on some vellum paper.
Using Pattern Paper for Backgrounds - Hey there critters
Welcome back to the T4TD blog! I hope you loved the warm weather in the last week! It's Miki here and today I'm back with a new card using pattern paper. I love the new pads released in May so I had to come up with some ideas on how to use them. Stay tuned for another design coming next week!
For today's card I started by picking one of the Gorgeous Gingham designs and cut it to 3.25" x 4.5". I then glued it on top of an A2 card base.
Next, I used the smaller frame in the Smile Inverted Scallop Frame Dies, cut it from white cardstock twice and glued them together for some dimension. I then cut the cloudy design from the Pawsome Rainbows pad and attached it to the back of my white frames. Pattern paper is perfect for quick and easy backgrounds!
I then used one of the negatives from the frame and cut a while hill using the Landscape Edge Dies and attached it on top of the clouds. When my framed background was complete I glued it on my card panel.
For the critters I used the Hey There Critters stamp set. I coloured them in using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, added some white highlights and used the matching dies to cut them out. I wanted this to represent a summer scene so I arranged them on top of my frame using some foam tape. For the sentiment I used the Bonjour greeting from the same stamp set and white embossed it on black cardstock. I cut it using the matching dies and attached it to my card.
I hope you like today's card, it's making me think of going for a picnic hehe!

Good afternoon Teatimers
Just calling to say a quick Hello! How cool is this retro phone die from the latest release? I absolutely remember my nan having one of these when I was younger and loved to play with the dial.
Taking a 6x6 card blank I die cut the largest of the Square Label Dies making sure the edge of my die when slightly past the fold of the card. I then took yellow patterned paper from the 6x6 Sweet Summer pad and cut out using the next die down.
I wanted a simple background design so that the funky yellow phone would stand out. Using the sentiments from the Hey There Critters stamp set and taking inspiration from a fellow DT colleague, I stamped a background of 'hellos' onto white card. I used the 3rd largest die from the set to cut out this layer.
I die cut the Retro Phone Builder Die from yellow card and added colour around the edges with Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade. I cut the dial out twice from white card (including the holes) and once from black card (without holes) adding the black to the back of the white pieces to give some dimension.
I used the HELLO from the Hey, Hi, Hello dies cut 3 times from white card and the background from black and added underneath the phone.
I love the way the striking yellow phone stands our against the simple black and white background.

Welcome To Your New Home
Hello and happy Friday, DT Annalisa here. Moving has got to be one of the most stressful things to do. This card is for someone who has just moved to help bring them joy after a long day of unpacking.
To start, I ink blended on some Salvaged Patina Distress Ink to an A6 (4 1/8 inch by 5 13/16 inch) card base through the Flirty Flowers Stencil with my aqua Beautiful Blender Brush. I removed the stencil and lightly blended the ink left on my brush on the card base to avoid stark white areas. I then added some ink splatter.
