It's Penguin-ing to Look a lot Like Christmas


Happy Friday! DT Annalisa here sharing a wintery Christmas card featuring the adorable penguins from It's Penguin-ing to Look A Lot Like Christmas stamp set paired with a piece of patterned paper from the Winter Wonderland Paper Pad 6x6".

A beautiful piece of patterned paper like this makes creating a card easy as it provides a complete background! I trimmed the patterned paper with an older stitched 5.5 x 5.5-inch square die from Time For Tea Designs and glued it to a card base.

I stamped, coloured and die-cut all the images and added white gel pen accents. I applied glue to small areas of each image with a Quickie Glue Pen, dipped these areas into Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter and tapped off the excess. The star in the sky is from the Snow Much Fun stamp set. 

I glued or used double-sided foam tape to adhere all stamped images and sentiments to the card. 

I stamped the sentiments and die-cut them out with their coordinating dies. I used the dies to cut out two more sentiment backers from white cardstock and glued them together for some dimension. I then adhered the sentiments to the card.

Let it snow, let it snow....!!

Hey there tea-timer friends... 

DT Ashlee here today to share a new card with you and this one uses more of the new release goodies!!

I am totally loving all the new sets, they are so fun and super adorable too...

This card uses the Snow much fun Stamos and co-ordinating die set along with these previously release T4T products...

To create this card I started with a white card base that I stamped a row of the trees on and coloured with a white glitter pen (sorry I couldn't capture the sparkle in the photo).

I then added a wide stitch frame that was diet from a light blue cardstock. This was mounted with foam tape to add dimension to the base. 

A poppin sentiment was added by die cutting the let it snow sentiment from black and bright pink cardstocks. A sub sentiment was stamped and die cut using the co-ordinating die and added onto the side of the large sentiment. 

I stamped, coloured and die cut a couple of the cute snowmen and added them to the scene. To complete the card I popped on some of the T4T enamel dots.

What do you think of this fun snow scene card? I hope you enjoyed it...

Happy crafting, till next post. Hugs Ashlee.

Sending You a Whole Latte Love

Hi Tea Timers, welcome back to the blog. I am sharing a perfect blend of stamp sets with the new Pumpkin Spice and The Perfect Blend sets.

I love the different images of the mugs that are included in the Pumpkin Spice set and the sentients in the Perfect Blend set pair wonderfully!

Sets used:
I've been loving the clean and simple look and wanted to create a simple but cute background for the mugs. I first took an A2 panel and piece of low tack tape that I tore in half and masked off a portion of the panel. I took the coffee bean stamped with embossing ink. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. With Worn Lipstick, Saltwater Taffy and Tattered Rose Distress Oxides and blended it over the embossed area.

I then stamped out the images and used the following Copic Marker combos to color them:
  • RV10, RV11, RV13
  • BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18
  • R20, R22, R24, R27
  • V01, V04, V05, V06
  • E00, E11, E13
I then fussy cut them out and set them to the side. I then took the sentiment and stamped it directly onto the panel. 

To complete my card, I arranged my mugs how I wanted them on the card and then used liquid adhesive to adhere the images.

I hope you enjoyed this card and love the sets I featured as much as I do. If you want to purchase these sets, check out the shop and use the code T4TRANDY10 for extra savings.

Falalala, happy Saturday Teatimer's the weekends keep rolling on fast at the minute don't they! I have another sweet Christmas card for you this week. I had the idea of turning the bears from the Happy Trails stamp set into Polar Bears to create this snowy scene card. 

I used the Falalala Scalloped Slimline Die set to create the base layer cutting it out twice and ink blending on some blue/green distress oxides to create my background. I added some texture with ink splatters and some snow with white acrylic paint splatters. Using the second base I cut out a snow bank using the Slimline Hillside Scene Dies and added some foam tape behind to add some depth. Using foam tape I added a second scallop frame on the top so it matched the height of the snow bank. 
I also cut out some snow flakes and the falalala out of white card adding them to the background then adhering the images on top. 
Their igloo house comes from the It's Penguin-ing to Look a Lot like Christmas Stamp set and the little holly came from the Gingerbread Family Stamp Set
As always I finished up by adding some final touches with a white and black gelly roll pen. I hope you like my card and as always you can get 10% off in the shop using code T4TNATALIE10.

Floating By to say Hey


Hello and happy Friday. DT Annalisa here sharing a fun scalloped card featuring the new Walrus Be Friends stamp set by Time For Tea Designs. I love how the Walrus is waving hello.

To start, I die-cut a piece of Gorgeous Gingham 6x6' Paper Pad with the Large Scallop Celebrate Frame Dies. I ink-blended Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink to the sides of the paper with my Beautiful Blender Brush. I then adhered this to a card base that I created using the same die. 

I sprayed Distress Mica Stain in Shiny Bauble onto watercolour paper. I love the shine mica stain has. Once it was dry, I die-cut it first with the Snow Flurry Cover Die and then with the tag die found in the Memory Keeping Essential Dies. I also used some of this paper to die-cut the hey sentiment from the Hey, Hello, Hi Dies. I ink blended on Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to the letters to darken them up. 

I cut some white card stock with the Slimline Hillside Scene Dies to create a snowy hill for the Walrus to sit on. I cut it again with the tag die and then glued it on top of the tag. I glued the 'hey' to the base of the tag with liquid glue. I tied a bow onto the tag with some Lawn Fawn teal Lawn Trimmings. 

I stamped the seal and hat from the Walrus Be Friends and coloured them with my Copic markers. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added some white gel pen accents. I used liquid glue to adhere the hat to the Walrus and then used double-sided foam tape to stick them to the tag. I then added double-sided foam tape to the back of the tag and placed it on the scalloped card base. 

I stamped and die-cut the sentiment and glued it to the bottom of the card base below the tag. To complete the card, I added "Summer Haze" and "Clear Bubbles" Designer Enamel Dots.

Black Friday Inspiration!

 Today's Cards are from our Facebook/YouTube Live last night. I used some products from our Black Friday Sale, and I really loved how these turned out.

The pink framed version was inspired by one of our Teaspoons Charlotte. 🥰 I think this turned out so cute!! I changed my background a little on this one so that it worked with the pink frame a little better.

If you want to find out more about our Pawsome Sale just head to our Blog and look for the Black Friday Sale Post from Wednesday.
Subscribers also get exclusive offers so if you haven't signed up yet, there is still time to via the T4TD website. 🥳

Look out for more Black Friday Inspiration this weekend and don't forget to join our extra special Live Event tonight on Facebook & YouTube at 8PM.

Happy Shopping!

Who's at the door....?!

 Hey there tea-timers...

DT Ashlee here with a fun and festive card to share with you. I absolutely can not wait for Christmas, what about you?!

This card features a stamp set from the new release at Time for tea designs called Gingerbread family and it is oh SO cute....

I combined the gingerbread family with a couple of previously released dies to make a Christmas door scene...

To create this card I started by making my card base from a creamy tan coloured cardstock die cut from the wide stitched frames. 

I then die cut all the pieces to create the door and Christmas scenery from a bunch of different coloured cardstock before assembling it all onto the card base. 

The sentiment was stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink and die cut with the co-ordinating die. 

I stamped, coloured and die cut the two sweet little gingerbread and added them onto the doorstep with their yummy treats!!
(These were coloured with Spectrum noir tri-blend markers)

To complete the card a touch of sequins adhered using micro glue dots...

I just love how this card came together and I can't wait to create some more with this brand new set!!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, happy crafting. Hugs Ashlee.
