Snapoy for coffee!

Hey there Tea-timer friends...

DT Ashlee here with some SNAPPY inspiration for today's Time for Tea designs card!


I used these T4T products :


To create this card I started with a green card stock base. I then added stencilling to it using the coffee bean stencil and green ink from Catherine Pooler. I die cut the coffee sentiment from brown card stock pieces before adhering to the card base with foam tape. Once that was in place I added the sub sentiment stamped directly onto the card base with black ink.

I stamped the coffee cart and croc for my card images. These were coloured using Spectrum noir tri-blend markers before die cutting with the co-ordinating dies!


To complete the card I finished it off with a touch of sequins.

What do you think of this snappy coffee card? I think it turned out a bit cute if I do say so hehe. Love that little croc waiting for coffee!

Thanks for checking out my card, happy crafting. Hugs Ashlee.

Happy engagement!

 Hello everybody!

There's has been a proposal!👰 Not to me, I married quite some time ago, but a co-worker of mine was proposed to by her boyfriend during a romantic getaway. Ofcourse I had to make a card to congratulate them. 

Time for Tea has got a clear stamp set especially for engagements, but I do not have this particular set in my stash, so I had to be creative on this theme. I scowered through my supplies and found the Stinkin' Cute Clear Stamp Set has got critters in there which, with a little bit of imagination, can be seen as a couple getting engaged 😃

So I stamped those and colored them with Copic alcohol markers. (And yes, brown skunks DO exist! I thought it would make the look somewhat 'softer' as I was going for a romantic warm sunset vibe). This time I fussy cut them out with my Cutter bee scissors. 


My next step was to cut a panel with the Simple Nesting Dies - A6 from white cardstock. I chose warm Distress oxide colours for my sunset sky background: dusty concord, abandoned coral and scattered straw. The ground has been made with tea dye and aged mahogany. 



For the sentiment I used Anthony's Alpha Dies on smooth white cardstock combined with the Simple Sentiments Clear Stamp Set. The word 'engagement' was heat embossed onto a strip of black cardstock.

I adhered the colored critters and the sentiment onto the panel with foam tape and adhered the entire panel onto a white card base with double sided tape.

Lastly I added some die cut hearts in black and gave the 'boyfriend' skunk a ring to offer to his 'girlfriend' skunk. The ring used to be a sweet from the Bearing Gifts Clear Stamp Set, which I trimmed down to a circle. 


Now isn't this a nice romantic scene? 😍

Hope the receivers like it as much as I do!

I'm A Sucker For You

 Hi Tea Timers, welcome back to the blog. DT Randy here with a card featuring a card with one of my favorite sentiments. Mainly because it's a lyric to one of my favorite songs. 


I wanted to create a background specifically for the sentiment and decided to use the lollipops from two sets.

Sets used:

(coordinating dies available here)
(coordinating dies available here)

To create my background, I took Ann A2 card and stamped the images around the card. Once I had my background filled out, I set it to the side to decide on my color scheme.


I decided to go with a rainbow color scheme. Instead of hopping around the card with the different colors, I wanted to create a rainbow with lines of colors.

I used the following Copic Marker Combos for each line:

V01, V04, V05
RV11, RV13, RV14
R21, R22, R24
YR12, YR14, YR16
Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19
YG21, YG23, YG45
BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18

Once I had my background completed, I set it to the side to work on the sentiments.


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments onto purple cardstock with white embossing powder.

I then die cut out the sentiments using the coordinating dies for them. I completed the card by adhering the sentiments onto the background, near the top with foam tape.

Celebration withxes and Kaja

 Hi all,

It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I am back with an adorable card with two little foxes!

Take a look:


I don't know about you, but I just love adorable little critters, so I decided to color two cure little foxes from Birthday fox stamp set. 

I decided to go with a traditional orange color in combination with gray and small white gel pen details. Since this is a celebration card, I added a cute little balloon that I colored in with green.


To create the background I used a Stitched hearts cover die and a piece of white cardstock. I wanted to have a bright scene, so I decided to create the center of the card using a rectange die from the same die set, but I used patterned paper from Brighter days paper pack instead of a normal cardstock.

Next, I added the sentiment from the same Birthday fox stamp set that reads 'let's celebrate'. I used black ink and stamp it out at the bottom of my little scene.

The last thing I did, was that I glued everything on a card base using double sided foam squares and liquid glue.

Hugs,
Kaja

Let Your Dreams Take Flight


Happy Friday! DT Annalisa here with a new card to share that features the Love Is In the Air stamp and its' coordinating dies. I enjoyed colouring in all the cute balloons with my Copic markers.

To create this card, I started with a light blue card stock base that I die-cut with the Sweet Scalloped Dies and then Snow Flurry Cover Die to add texture. Next, I ink-blended the edges using my Beautiful Blender Brush, Surf, and Seafoam Pawsitively Saturated ink. I added silver splatter with a paintbrush, water and silver watercolour. 


Once the blue panel was dry, I adhered it to some silver dotted patterned paper that I glued to a 5 3/4-inch by 4-inch card base.

I stamped and coloured (with Copics) several images from Love Is In the Air and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I added white gel pen accents with a Gelly Roll PenI used a metallic silver marker to different patterns to the balloons. The sentiment is from Paper Plane Pals that I stamped and then cut out with the coordinating dies


I stuck the images to the card base using a combination of liquid glue and double-sided foam tape for dimension.

Meeoooowww!!

Hey there Tea-timers...

DT Ashlee here with some new T4T inspiration for you!

MEOOOOWWW...

To create this card I decided to choose a colour of card that I don't usually gravitate towards and that was orange. I then used the Pawsome prints stencil along with brown distress oxide ink to create a paw pattern/inked card base....


Using the You had me at MEOW sentiment die I die cut that from two different brown cardstocks before adhering together with liquid glue and adding to the card base using foam tape....

I added a couple cute little kitty faces by stamping, colouring and die cutting them from the Sweet cart critters set! These were adhered using foam tape also so that my card has lots of nice dimension!!

To complete the card in my usual style I finished it all off with a touch of pretty sequins. That's all for my card today, I hope you enjoyed this kitty themed card....


Until next post happy crafting, hugs Ashlee.

You, me and a cup of ....

Goodday everyone!

In case you haven't noticed yet, one of my favorite themes on a card is... coffee!
This week I'd like to show you another invitation to send out to someone.

I took my Takeout Coffee Cup Dies and ran them through my die cut machine using a vanilla cardstock. I added Distress Ink (Antique linen) to emphasize the shape of the cup. Used a nice chocolate brown for the coffee cup wrapper and topped it off with a pink heart. 



For the Coffee Sentiment Die I used light pink glitter cardstock and blueish aqua smooth cardstock. The 'you, me and a cup of' sentiment was taken from the The Perfect Blend Stamp Set, although I left out the 'tea' part 😉 I stamped it onto black cardstock with Versafine watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. 

Using the Simple Nesting Dies A6 I die-cut a panel out of light pink smooth cardstock. With the Scattered Hearts 6 x6" Stencil and Distress Oxide (Picked raspberry) I stenciled on the background, making sure I'd fade out towards the edges by starting in de middle of the panel and not re-inking my brush when moving towards the edges. I think it makes the background more subtle and draws the attention to the center of the card, where the coffee cup and sentiment are going to be.


After my ink had dried, I assembled the stenciled panel onto a blue scalloped panel - matching the color to the one used on the coffee sentiment. 
I used 3D foam tape to adhere the coffee cup and sentiments onto the card base.
Lastly, I added some nice orange enamel dots, taken from the Time For Tea Designs Designer Enamel Dots (summer haze)




I hope this card inspires you to send out an unexpected invitation to a lovely person you'd like to share your coffee with!

All the best

~Ilona~

You Had Me at Meow: Cat Background

Hi Tea Timers, welcome back to the blog. One of the large sentiment dies that I really adore is the "You Had Me at Meow" sentiment die. I wanted to create a cat background to pair with this sentiment.

For this card, I decided to use the cats from three stamp sets to create a fun cat background. I also added some accessories featured in this set to help fill out the background.

Sets used:

(Coordinating dies available here)
(Coordinating dies available here)
(Coordinating dies available here)

I first stamped arranged the cats onto an A2 card base and stamped them on using black ink. With any big, blank spaces, i took the same cats and stamped them again to fill out those spaces.

I then took some of the accessories featured in the stamp sets, such as the mouse, paw print, etc. and stamped them around the card as well.

Once I had my background completed, I used Copic Markers to color the background. 

Once I finished coloring my background, I set it to the side to start working on the sentiment.

I first die cut the sentiment from teal cardstock and then green cardstock. I then took the negative space and placed it on top of the background.

This is a good trick to helping you align the words as this sentiment die is not connected together. Once I had it where I wanted the words to go, I then added liquid adhesive and added in each letter to their respective spaces.

Birthday bunny with Kaja

 Hi all,

It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I am back with another cute birthday card!

Take a look:


This time, I started off the card by creating masked rectangles at the top of my card base using post it note stickies. You could use a stencil for this, but I wanted to have some some random shapes instead of a standard shape forms.

I went with a simple grass and sky look for which I used Bundled sage and Tumbled glass distress inks. 

Once the background was done, I removed the masks and started stamping out the images I wanted to use on the card.

I went all in on the images, so I used 4 stamp sets: Warm hugsLove is in the airLlama tell you and Eggstra special birthday. I colored everything in using alcohol markers and to add a special touch, I used a white gel pen.

Next, I added the sentiment from the Warm hugs stamp set that reads 'it's your birthday you deserve a treat'. I used black ink and stamp it out at the bottom of my little scene.

The last thing I did, was that I glued everything on a card base using double sided foam squares and liquid glue.

Hugs,
Kaja

Have a Moovellous Birthday


Happy Friday! DT Annalisa, today is my birthday so I am sharing a cute birthday slimline card featuring the Ewe Are Moovellous stamp set from Time For Tea Designs. I love how you can mix and match sets from Time For Tea Designs to create detailed scenes like this with several images from different stamp sets. 


I die-cut Distress White Heavy cardstock by Ranger with the Stitched Slimline Slopes Dies and ink-blended the different sloped panels with Distress Oxides using my Beautiful Blender Brushes. I created the sand area, with tea dye, antique linen and vintage photo (splatter); the grass, with twisted citron, mowed lawn and rustic wilderness (splatter); the sky, with tumbled glass, salvaged patina, peacock feathers and mermaid lagoon (splatter).


I used liquid glue to adhere the inked sloped panels and the stitched outline to a slimline card base.  

I stamped and coloured (with Copics) several images from Ewe Are MoovellousHey There CrittersKitty CapersSweet VillageEwe Are The BestJust Married and Love Is In the Air and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I added white gel pen accents with a Gelly Roll Pen


I stuck the images and sentiments to the card base using liquid glue or double-sided foam tape for dimension.

Let's party

Hey there Tea-timer friends...

DT Ashlee here with a new card, let's party (by party I mean craft!) 


To create this card I started with a yellow card stock base that I added stencilling too using the Movie star stencil. I then die cut it from the sweet scalloped die before adhering it to a card base. 


I added a focal sentiment by die cutting the lets party die from black card and teal blue card before adhering together slightly offset. I then stamped the sub sentiment from the warm hugs stamp set directly onto the card base underneath the die cut using black ink....



It was now time for the cute little penguin with cupcake to be added to the card. This was stamped, coloured and die cut using the co-ordinating dies (coloured using Spectrum noir tri-blend markers).

To complete the card I finished it off with some pretty sequins!


What do you think?! do you like it....

Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting. Hugs Ashlee.

Stinkin' great!

Goodday all! 

Hope you all had a nice Easter, and nobody was fooled badly yesterday 😉
I had a creative weekend and made this card with the Stinkin' Cute Clear Stamp Set to show you!
Just a card to send to somebody to let them know you appreciate them (not to let them know they smell bad, ofcourse).


As per my usual recipe, I started off with stamping the critters and running them through my Scan 'n Cut machine to cut them out. I used Copic alcohol markers to colour them. 

I used the Simple Nesting Dies - A6 to cut out a panel from white cardstock and the Stitched Window Cover Die to cut out the frame. Using the frame and some masking tape, I divided the white panel into 3 pieces, enabling me to create three scenes.

I wanted to put the skunks in a spring-like scenery so I chose 6x6 Scene Builder Stencil for the grass and clouds. Started with the grass, using Distress oxide twisted citron and mowed lawn. The clouds were made with tattered rose. Repeated this two times, to fill in all three areas on the panel.


With 1,5mm 3d foam tape, I adhered the frame on top of the panel. Stamped on the sentiment with the help of my stamping tool. Played around with the skunks and the mushrooms until I was happy with the little scenes and adhered them all using 0,5 and 1mm foam tape.

To complete the card, I added Stickles star dust to the mushrooms, giving it a little sparkle!


I think it came out stinkin' cute! 😃

Hello: 1 Stecil, 2 Cards

 Hi Tea Timers, welcome back to the blog. I have been wanting to create with the Dancing Dandelion stencil and thought would be fun to create two different cards with the one stencil. 


I decided to heat emboss with the stencil and do a simple ink blending with distress oxides and the stencil. Both cards are very simple but are meant to send a message to a dear friend.

Sets used:

For my first card, I taped off the border of the card with low tack tape so I could ink blend the middle portion. I used Cracked Pistacio, Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxides.

I then took the stencil and blended it with embossing ink. I added the white embossing powder and heat embossed it.


I then took the 'hello' word die and cut it out of gold cardstock. With the sentiment, I heat embossed it onto pink cardstock with gold embossing powder. I trimmed the sentiment down to a strip.

I removed the tape and assembled my card by adding the hello with liquid adhesive and the sentiment with foam tape.


My next card, I did the same technique by masking the border. I then ink blended Scattered Straw, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Carved Pumpkin, Abandoned Coral and Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxides.

I then decided to first stamp on my sentiment with black ink before I added the stencil. Once I stamped on the sentiments, I positioned the stencil onto my card. I ink blended Black Soot Distress Oxide onto the stencil around the sentiments.


I then carefully removed the low tack tape to reveal the completed card.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post today. All of the supplied I used today are linked above. Don't Forget to use the code T4TRANDY10 at checkout for extra savings.

Eggstra special Easter with Kaja

Hi all,

It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I wanted to wish you all an eggstra special Easter!

Take a look at my card:


I started off this card by creating the background and this time, I decided to go with a simple egg pattern. I stamped out a bunch of eggs from Eggstra special birthday stamp set that I colored in using watercolor markers. I made sure that I used brightful colors, so the card is looking cheerful and fun.

Once the eggs were stamped out and colored, I added some details with white gel pen.

I used the same technique for the bunny that can also be found in the Eggstra special birthday stamp set. For the bunny I went with gray and I colored the cheeks and ears in with pink that matches the eggs.

Next, I positioned the bunny in the center of my background and added the sentiment from the same stamp set that reads 'have an eggstra special Easter'.

I added some blue and gray cardstock to the card, so it all matches nicely with the colors I used for the eggs and bunny.

The last thing I did, was that I glued everything on a card base using double sided foam squares and liquid glue.

Hugs,
Kaja

You Make Life Sweeter


Happy Friday, DT Annalisa here! Today, I share a cute pink card I created using all three stamp sets released in February from Time For Tea Designs. The more the merrier, right?! 


I ink-blended kitsch flamingo and abandoned coral Distress Oxide onto Distress White Heavy cardstock by Ranger with my Beautiful Blender Brushes. I added worn lipstick Distress Oxide and white splatter with a paintbrush, water and Copic opaque white.



I die-cut the pink panel with the Lots of Love Horizontal Cover Plate Die. I used liquid glue to adhere this to an A6 card base that I ink-blended with lost shadow Distress Oxide.


I used the scalloped heart in the Sweet Scalloped Dies on Distress White Heavy cardstock by Ranger and ink blended it with salvaged patina and peacock feathers Distress Oxide. I added splatter with a paintbrush, water and the same oxides. Once the heart was dry I stamped "You make life sweeter" from Sweet On You using Versafine Onyx Black.


I stamped and coloured (with Copics) several images from Sweet Cart CrittersSweet On You, and Warm Hugs. I cut the images out with their coordinating dies and added white gel pen accents with a Gelly Roll Pen


I used double-sided tape to stick the images to the card. I tied blue and white twine in a bow in the opening of the heart and attached it to the card base with double-sided tape.
