Snail mail card

Hello.

I hope you are well. We have had a mini heat wave this week but today it is back to rain.

Today I am sharing a card using one of the new A7 clear stamp sets from Time For Tea Designs called You Snailed It.

I started the card by stamping my images on to Neenah classic crest solar white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I also used images from the Moovellous stamp set to make the scene. I used Copic markers to colour the images, cut them out and set them to one side.

Next I worked on the background. I took my card base and a blending brush and gently blended some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink on the bottom of the card fading out to the centre. I then placed the unbe-leaf-able stencil on top and repeated the process with the same ink. This leaves a subtle pattern in the blue area. I then lightly blended some more Oxide inks from the top of the card. I used Pickled Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade. I then stamped the sentiment to the centre of my background in black ink.

I die cut a grass border using a die from Honey Bee Stamps from a piece of white card then added Oxide ink Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.

I used a tape runner to adhere the grass border and all the images and this completes the card.

Thanks for dropping by.

Crazy Cat Lady Card.

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card fit for any crazy cat person!

To make this card i used three clear stamp sets from Time For Tea Designs. Butterflies for the girl and Smile sentiment, Mew Are Pawsome for the cats and Moovellous for the Birthday sentiment.

I started the card by stamping and colouring the main images using Copic markers and cut them out. The cat at the top was a stamp of a cat peeking out from a box. I cut around it to remove the box and used a white gel pen to hide the ink lines left. They are not completely hidden and the perfectionist in me can still see them but that’s ok!

Next I worked on my background. I used the Line Em Up stencil. I used purple tape to attach the stencil to my card base and a Picket Fence life changing blending brushes to add Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar.

Once the ink was dry I used Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour and flicked it from a paint brush to leave small splatters over the stripes.

Once the background was dry I stamped the sentiments using Versafine black ink, then adhered my images. I used foam pads to pop up the two sitting cats to give the card some dimension.

To complete the card I added a few sequins from Little Things By Lucy .

Toucan do this encouragement card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card made using products from Time For Tea Designs.

To start the card I took the Toucan Do This clear stamp set and stamped out my images using Memento Tuxedo black ink on to Neenah 80lb solar white cardstock. I then coloured the using Copic markers.

I die cut the images using the coordinating dies and set the images to one side.

Next I worked on the background. I took the Un-be-leaf-able stencil and adhered it to my card base using some low tak tape. I masked off some of the stencil that I did not want to use. I took Distress Oxide inks in Dusty Concord, Broken China and Twisted Citron and blended them over the stencil.

Once the ink was dry I adhered my images on to the card with a tape runner and stamped the sentiment. To complete the card I added some sequins for some sparkle and shine.

Thanks for dropping by.

Bee card for a sweet friend

Hello I hope you are well and having better weather than we are at the moment.

Today I am sharing a card made for Time For Tea Designs showing how to stretch your stamps by changing how you use an image. I used the Bee Happy clear stamp set.

I started by stamping the floral background. This is a red rubber background stamp from Simon Says Stamp called ‘gerbera daisy background.’

I used Versafine onyx black ink to cover the whole of the stamp, then placed my card base directly on top. I rubbed firmly all over and the lifted it off. This left a perfect impression.

Next I took a piece of Neenah classic crest 80lb solar white card and stamped out the bee images along with the honey pot and the spoon using Memento tuxedo black ink. I then coloured them in with my Copic markers and die cut them out.

Here are the original stamps so you can see what I changed.

I wanted the bees to be holding the spoon and honey pot rather than the flowers and letter. There are two ways of doing this. You could mask the images or the way I did this was to cut away the flowers and letter from the bees, leaving the hands to hold the pot and spoon.

To add some more colour to the card I cut a thin strip of black and yellow card and adhered to the edge of my card base with a tape runner. I then used the same card to make a banner and stamped the sentiment using Altenew pigment ink ‘ultimate metalic gold’

I adhered the banner with a tape runner and bees to using foam squares and added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen over the bees wings to add some sparkle and complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care for now.

Magical Day Card

Hello today I am sharing a card featuring new digital stamps from Time for tea Designs.

The new release goes live this Friday the 14th of June 2109 at 9pm GMT. You can use discount code T4TKATRINA10 to get 10% discount off your entire order.

To make the scene card I printed off the digital images from the Magical Wishes collection on to Neenah 80lb solar white cardstock using my HP deskjet printer. (Make sure your ink is nice and dry before you start colouring the images to avoid smudging the ink.)

I started with the background scene of pyramids and temples which I cut to fit my card base. I masked off the images using a piece of tracing paper and masking paper. I then took Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush to blend the sky. I used Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Chipped Saphire I did the same to blend the sand, this time using Crushed Olive and Antique Linen. I then carefully removed the mask and coloured the images using my Copic markers. I used a small paintbrush to add splatters of gold and white gold watercolour to the background to add some texture.

I continued with colouring all the other images using my Copics and fussy cut them out. I went around the edges with a black marker.

I adhered the images with a tape runner and with a C0 Copic went under the images to give some shadows.

I made the sentiment by adding some ink to match the card as the sky and printed the sentiment on to it. I cut this out and mounted it on to a piece of black cardstock and trimmed it down to leave a thin black border. I adhered this to the sky.

I added a gem to the tiara and adhered the panel to a piece of gold cardstock and them my card base to complete the card.

Moovellous Birthday Card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card using the Moovellous clear stamp set from Time For tea designs.

There are lots of cute images in this set perfect for making a scene card.

I started the card by stamping the images on to Neenah solar white 80lb cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. The fence is one small image which I stamped several times. The image fits perfectly to be able to do this freehand. No masking or stamp positioning tool needed.

I coloured the images using my Copic markers and cut them out using my Scan N Cut, but coordinating dies are available for this set.

Next I worked on the background. I took Distress Oxide inks in Twisted Citron and Salty Ocean, blending green on the bottom and blue on the top. I stamped the sentiments in black ink.

I arranged my images and adhered them in place using my tape runner to complete the card.
