I took a different look at the theme and used some tiny springs underneath the toads. :0)

The little springs are tiny little ones that easily fit onto a stamped image and already have adhesive on both of the surfaces.

You can buy Mermazing from Create & Crafte here

https://www.createandcraft.com/gb/pp/-mermazing-stamps-and-dies-collection-459281

I used a MFT die set called "Peek a boo window & edge" to shape the card and a stitched wavy edge die from the same company to make the waves.
The images have been stamped with black versafine ink and then I like to clear emboss the ink to help the pens stay in the lines.

Time For Tea Designs DT Inspiration


Hi there,


today's post is for my DT inspiration for Time For Tea Designs. I've used one of the new releases for this card and is ideal to send to one of your crafty friends.



I've used Copic & Painter Bonnie for my card.

Load image into Gallery viewer, Copic & Painter Bonnie Digital Stamps                                                                                           Load image into Gallery viewer, Copic & Painter Bonnie Digital Stamps

I layered a white 6x6 card blank with a layer of Papermania grey cardstock and then a layer of die cut patterned paper. 
The images have been coloured with Copics and then cut out leaving a small border with my Scan & Cut. 
The "wonderful" sentiment came from the same pad as the patterned paper and again I layered it with the grey cardstock.
I used the computer to generate the sentiment and layered it onto the same grey cardstock. 
The images were then adhered to the middle of the die cut apertures with 3D pads.
I thought it needed a little something more so I added a few silver sequins. 
   
We still have an Anything Goes Challenge on the Time For Tea Community Facebook page here. It would be great if you could join us. 

Have a great week

Butterfly Flutterby

Because I'd been doing a lot of girl images lately I thought I'd make a mixed media card today.


For the background I used stamps from Lisa Horton by Creative Expressions. I stamped using the Tim Holtz oxide inks and paint spatters.
The butterfly images have been inked with a black versafine pad and then clear embossed. I have used the new Spectrum Noir Triblends to colour them and again I used paint spatters.

It's my day to post my card for my Time For Tea Designs DT inspiration.
I've used one of the new releases called "Beats Bella".

She can be found ( along with all the new releases) in the Time For Tea Designs store here.


To make Bella's background I sprayed some oxide inks with water and then smooshed the card through it. I did this several times making sure each layer was dry each time. 
I then printed out Bella and used my Scan and Cut to cut around here leaving a small border. 
She has been coloured with Copics.

Cute Card Thursday & CAS(E) Challenges

This week's theme for Cute Card Thursday is

Anything Goes


For this card I've also followed the CAS(E) this sketch challenge. Here's the sketch I've followed

                                                             

I've used a Time For Tea digi image called "Winter Hoodie" ( she's not in the shop yet as it's just been opened and all the images haven't been brought over yet) and I finally got out my Polychromos again. Need a bit of practise but not too bad lol. I did still use my Copics for the skin as I only have 24 pencils and I couldn't find a nice skin combo.
I've cut her out using my Scan & Cut. The die at the bottom of the card is a Sizzix Tim Holtz die.
The sentiment is a stamp set by CZ Design and is called Hello You.

This week we are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.

Good Luck

Time For Tea Designs have had a total make over and now have a new shop and blog here

                                                               Time For Tea Designs


So to celebrate I made this cute Valentine's card featuring Phoebe Hugs.


I've used my scan & cut to cut the image out leaving a little border.
I then coloured her with Copics.
The background is a cut file which I've cut using my Silhouette Cameo in a white cardstock.
I then layered it up onto red then black cardstock.
I cut out the hugs using a die and again layered it up so it would stand out.

She makes an ideal image to use on your Valentine's cards!
