Catmas Cracker

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and staying safe. I am having a mad couple of weeks trying to get moved but wanted to pop in here and share my card using the Catmas Crackers stamp set and the great Zig Zag Frame and Tag die set  They were just calling out for me to use them together :)

I also used one of the papers from the Winter Wonderland paper pad. If you haven't seen these papers yet they are well worth a look as they are beautiful and can be used for more than just Christmas makes.

To finish it off I used one of the sentiments from the sentiment cards which I inked around the edges of and added some glitter to :)

Where you can be in with a chance to win this stamp and die set as well as other yummy Time for Tea goodies so why not check it out.

Have you picked up these Penguins?


I can not tell you how much fun I am having with these adorable little Skating By Penguins. They just make me smile so much. This little car was so quick to make as I used the Winter Background stamp and then trimmed it to fit on this little 4x4 card. I put the penguin on an action wobble so he can be dancing for joy and then added sparkle with some nuvo drops. Who else has gone for these penguins? What are your plans for them? If you haven't brought them or if you want anything else from the Time For Tea Designs shop you can get 10% off if you use my code T4TAMY10

Huge hugs to you all

This new Time For Tea Designs release is snow much fun!

Happy Saturday everyone! Wow! What a week this has been. Have you enjoyed seeing all the new release?? What are your favorites? And who got their orders in yesterday? I am so excited to see what you all create :D

Lets be honest, if you have seen all the new items you would know that I was never going to be able to resist these cute little penguins for long and they work so well with the new display card die I had to team them up :) I started by die cutting the card base and then decided which layers I wanted to use with it. I love that this looks so 3D but folds flat to fit perfectly in a C6 (6"x 4") envelope. I used a beautiful blender brush and a mix of blue print sketch, mermaid lagoon and tumbled glass distress oxides to do the sky in the background and add some depth to the snow.

I coloured all my little penguins and the up with copic markers and then stamped out coloured up some of the little trees from the winter background stamp set to go with them. The sentiments are from the new sentiment strip sets. To just finish it off I added some nuvo drops around which add some glitter and texture to it.
 I hope this has made you smile and that you all have a great weekend. Don't forget if you want to grab these little guys or anything else from the Time for Tea Designs store you can use my code T4TAMY10 to get 10% off your order.
Huge hugs

Time for Tea Designs Sneak Peek day 1

This is Amy back again for the second time this week to share my make using some of the amazing new November release from Time For Tea Designs. First off just check out this adorable little door! Isn't it so cute! Its called open the door. I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to add a little brad as the door handle. I used the brick wall stencil with a beautiful blender brush to add some tea dye and vintage photo distress oxide ink to give the bricks a two toned effect.

Then what is more perfect to be the other side of the door than this caroling mouse from the new caroling critters stamp set. You might also notice a couple of other little things like the paper and some sentiment strips that you will see more of later in the week ;) 

There is just so much to show you this week so I hope you are ready for it and don't forget to watch out for the FB lives with the lovely Jo as well so you can see even more of each of the new products. They will all be available from Friday and if you like a bit of a bargain don't forget you can use my code T4TAMY10 to get 10% off your order at the Time For Tea Designs store.

Time for some Pandamonium!

 I am so so so excited this is my first project as DT for Time For Tea Designs so please be kind :) I felt like we all needed something bright and happy with everything that is going on so what better than a panda with googly eye?? OK so I went one better and it's not only a panda with googly eyes its also on an action wobble!! I couldn't resist. 

This adorable set of stamps are called Pandamonium Party and in my personal opinion they wont fail to make people smile. I added a tiny bit of shade around their white bits with a light grey triblend marker, Coloured the hat and the balloons with more triblend markers before adding some sparkle with a crafters companion sparkle pen. To make the balloons look shiny with some glossy accents. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all and then added the hats and balloons before fixing on their googly eyes. 

 For the background I used my time for tea beautiful blender brushes and some distress oxide inks to make this colourful background (I used Wilted Violet, worn lipstick and antique linen) before then adding sparkle using some pineapple delight glacier paste with the starry sky stencil

The squares behind them I cut using the quilted square nesting dies. For the solid square I wanted to add some texture so embossed it using another time for tea stencil called say cheese so the black has some slightly raised spots on it. The sentiment is from the stamp set and the rectangle that it i stamped on is from the coordinating dies. I heat embossed it in white embossing powder to stand out and match with the black and white of the pandas.

 I hope this has given you all a little smile and that you are all staying safe and well.

Huge Hugs

Foxy Friend

I just can't resist foxes and these foxes from C.C. Designs I fell completely in love with as soon as I saw them. I couldn't resist colouring them all up and they just seemed to fit perfectly with some inky backgrounds I had created using distress oxide sprays and these papers so I made them into a little set :D
