Hello. Today I am sharing a card using clear stamps from Time For Tea Designs.
I used two clear stamp sets ‘Swimming by to say hi’ and ‘Mermazing’
These stamps are available exclusively from Create and Craft
I started by stamping the mermaid, starfish and shell images on to X-press it blending card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then used my Copic markers to colour the images. I cut them out and placed them to one side.
Next I worked on the background. I cut some masking paper to mask the corners and leave a wave shape through the centre of a card base. I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a blending tool to add colour over the area. To add the bubbles I took the Time For Tea Designs ‘wonderful waves’ stencil and used the bubbles to stencil over using Blueprint sketch Distress Oxide. I then spritzed the inked area with water and soaked up the excess with a paper towel.
Finally I stamped the sentiments using my Misti and adhered the images, using foam pads for the mermaid and a liquid glue for the shells and starfish to complete the card.

Hello. I hope you are well. Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs using the cute clear stamp set called Mew are Pawsome
I started by masking off a section of a card base to ink blend on. I used a round blending tool and blended Distress Oxide inks in Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade. I then spritzed the inked area with water and soaked up any excess with a paper towel. I also flicked from a paintbrush some White Gold and Champagne Gold Gansai Tambi watercolor to add some shine. It’s hard to see the shine from the pictures.
I set the background aside to dry and worked on the images.
I stamped the cat and hat images and coloured them in with Copic markers. To make the cake I stamped the fish image then made a mask to place over the top. Once the mask was in place I stamped the candle on the top and the cupcake below the fish. I then removed the mask and coloured the image with my markers.
Once the images were cut out I adhered them to the background panel with a tape runner. To complete the card I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I used my Misti so I could give it a couple of stamps over the shiney watercolour.
This completes the card.
Until next time.

Hello. I hope you are well.
The flamingos on the Lawn Fawn stamp set Flamingo Together get me thinking about one of the items on my bucket list which is to visit Aruba. I decided to use this as inspiration for my card.
I started the card by stamping some flamingos on to some Copic friendly cardstock. I then coloured them using my Copic Markers, I did the same with the palm trees, cut them all out and put them to one side.
Next I worked on the background. I took a piece of white cardstock to make a card base and blended my Distress Oxides straight on top. I masked an area for the sky and blended salty ocean. I then masked the sky to blend the sea using peacock feathers. I used antique linen for the sand, making sure there was a small white space between the sand and sea areas to represent the waves.
Once the background was dry I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo black ink and used foam squares to adhere the flamingos. I the adhered the palm trees using a tape runner to complete the card.
Take care for now

Today I am sharing a card using a stamp set called Swimming by to say Hi from Time For Tea Designs.
To make the card I started by stamping the cute mermaid image from the stamp set on to some Xpress it blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I them coloured the image using my Copic markers. I used the coordinating die and ran it through my big shot die cutting machine.
Next I used a piece of white cardstock and selected three colours of Distress Oxide inks, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China and Salty Ocean to blend the background. Once I had done this I used a distress sprayer to spritz some water on to the blended panel and soaked up the excess water with a piece of paper towel. I then took some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from the starry colors collection, mixed it with some water and flicked it over my background with a paint brush. This added some nice shine.
I then adhered my mermaid to the centre of the card using a tape runner before stamping my sentiments. I took the ‘swimming by’ and ‘to say’ sentiments and stamped them above the mermaid then stamped the ‘Hi’ sentiment below her. I also stamped some fish in the background using Distress Oxide Hickory Smoke.
To complete the card I added a few sequins.
The swimming by to say hi stamp set is available to purchase exclusively on Create and Craft TV, follow the link below and take a look at the other cute clear stamp and die sets available. International delivery is available.

Hello. Today I am sharing a card I made inspired by the ‘let it shine’ class from Altenew Academy.
This class is all about different ways to add shine to cards.
To start the card I used Altenew stamp set ‘Hug Me’. I stamped the fox holding balloons and decided to use bright colours. I used my Copic markers to colour the image. I the cut it out using my Scan N Cut machine. I then added glossy accents to the balloons and set it aside to dry.
Next I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same stamp set in black ink on to a card base I cut a strip of glitter cardstock and adhered this to the edge of the card. I then adhered the fox. To finish the card I added some sequins around the fox.
Glitter cardstock and sequins are a great way to add shine to any card without distracting from the main image. Keeping this a clean and simple card.

Today I am sharing a card designed for The Little Paper Tree
I started the card by stamping the images from the stamp sets out on Bristol cardstock and coloured them using my Zig clean colour real brush markers. I only used three colours and blended them with water using a small paint brush to create shading and lighterareas of colour.
I took a 6 x 6 piece of white cardstock and die cut a heart. I then stamped the sentiments on the front. I attached a piece of acetate inside the panel using liquid glue and set this aside to dry. I then attached the stamped images to the front.
I made a card base to measure 6 x 6 and blended some Distress Oxide ink on the front where the heart window would sit.
I then took the front panel and turned it upside down. I attached foam tape around the heart shape, making sure there were no gaps. I then attached pieces of foam tape on the rest of the panel ready to adhere it to the base. I filled the heart window area withsequins. I then attached the card base to the front panel to complete the card.
This was such a fun card to make.
Take care for now.
