Thank You Beary Much Card Making Tutorial

Hi everyone! Jo here with another tutorial. This time I’m featuring the new Thank You Beary Much Digi Collection.

This collection is great for all those thank you cards we should send at this time of year. It also has everything you need to complete your card including Digi papers.

There is a video that accompanies the tutorial which you can find here:

As these are digital images I printed them all out on my home printer onto super smooth paper. I resized them in Word and cropped out images I didn’t need. I was also able to recolour some of the images in my Serif Drawplus software. There are other free software packages out there that are really simple to use and will allow you to recolour the solid images and sentiments. If you would like a tutorial on how I do this in future videos or tutorials please comment and I’ll see what I can do 🙂

I first tried fussy cutting my image but I didn’t like the finish so I decided to try cutting using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I have always struggled with the registration settings so it didn’t recognise them and I had 3 failed attempts at lining my images up before SUCCESS! I do think this looks so much more professional so it’s something I will be trying again. If anyone can give me some tips on setting up the registration marks I would be very grateful 😀

I also cut the outline shape from white cardstock so I could reinforce my printed paper image.

I coloured my cute bear with Copic Markers. The video above shows more detail of how he was coloured.

I recoloured my sentiment in a vibrant blue and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo. I backed this with plain white cardstock. I also recoloured 3 balloons to match the papers in the collection

Using my Xcut tweezers for help I stuck my balloon images into the inside of my card.

I next used my Copic multiliner pen to create some strings for my balloons.

I cut my sentiment out using some rectangle nesting Dies and cut a larger piece from some of the patterned paper in the collection. I used liquid glue to layer them up.

I used my tweezers to help position my sentiment over the join in my balloon strings.

I used each of the other 3 papers in the collection to create the background to my focal panel on the front of my card.

I cut my main panel out using Heffy Doodle Imperial sized rectangle dies and used a stitched circle nesting Die to cut out two circles in two different papers. I cut one of the circles down so that it creates a ‘ground’ for my bear to sit on.

I adhered my patterned paper circle pieces together using liquid glue. I then used the same glue to adhere the circle to the upper portion my rectangle panel leaving room for my sentiment underneath.

I used tiny small squares to add some dimension to my sentiment. I adhered this underneath my circle.

I wanted some dimension for my bear so I used foam pads to adhere that too.

I placed my cute bear onto my circle so he appears to be sitting on the green ‘floor’.

I was then ready to adhere my completed panel to my card base. My card is an A6 top folding card blank.

Time for the finishing touches! I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen to add some shine to my balloons both on the outside of my card and inside.

For some extra decoration I added some enamel dots to the front of my card dotted randomly around the circle panel. I used a combination of white and pink to compliment the colours in the papers.

I really hope you like the completed card and enjoyed the tutorial. Please let me know if you’ve tried any of the techniques mentioned and if you’ve made anything using T4TD Digis. We love to hear from you and see what you create!

Some of the products I used are listed below. I am only sharing products I genuinely use and I haven’t been paid to use them but I am an affiliate of the stores linked.

Meet our September guest designer Catrin Goodwin

Time for Tea Designs fans, please join me in welcoming to the blog this month our September guest designer Catrin Goodwin.  You may remember seeing her beautiful project shared on the September challenge post.  Well today we are showcasing a few of Catrin’s fantastic cards.

Now to learn a bit more about her, here is what she shared with us to get to know her a little better:

“Hi, I’m Catrin Goodwin and I love papercraft, specially cards. Ive been making cards for around 14 years, but the hobby really took hold after i had my own craftroom about 5 years ago. I live in a small town in Carmarthenshire, Wales with my husband and little boy. When I’m not working as an part-time assessor or card making I like puddle walks with the boy and my dogs and warm bubbly baths, with a small glass of bubbly too. ☺

Catrin created this fantastic card using the Happy New Year digital stamp:

39454435_313116036124445_4788869478270107648_n

and this fabulous card using the Onesie day digital stamp:

You can find more of Catrin’s work posted on her blog here and her instagram account here.

Thank you Catrin for sharing your fabulous projects with us as our guest designer this month!

Time For Tea Princess With DT Deni

Hello Everyone,

DT Deni with you, Today I am sharing with you an older but gorgeous image from Time For Tea Designs, this is Princess she is so beautiful.

I printed her onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Brother Laser Printer, then coloured her up using Copic Markers.

I cut some pink Canson cardstock for the bottom layer then some patterned papers from Bella! My Romance Paperz Collection (I used the Floral back and front) using my Cutterpillar Pro.

I grabbed a doily from my stash (you guys know I love these things lately) and layered it over the patterned papers. I still hadn’t adhered anything yet whilst I was still playing around.

I fussy cut my image using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors then layed her onto the doily.. I needed a sentiment, I went through my stash and found this older stamp set from anther company called I love you More. It was perfect. I prepared some vellum with a Powder Tool then using Versamark Watermark Ink pad and an Acrylic Block I stamped it down. I then added some Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder and melted it back and front using my Heat Tool.

I cut the sentiment vellum down to create a strip that I could wrap around all my layers. I then started adhering everything using Scotch ATG. I layed the embossed strip down and carefully using my Bone Folder creased the strip on both sides to make it easier to fold around. I also decided to add some red Copic Marker to the little hearts – I did this very carefully so I didn’t touch the embossing powder as this can damage your nib.

Lucky last I added all my layers to a Couture Creations Card Base.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Thankyou Beary Much – DT Deni

Hi Everyone,

DT Deni Here,

How cute are these New Release Images from Time For Tea Designs 🙂 This is the Thankyou Beary Much Collection.

I was very excited to play with these new images, I created this card with not too many layers. All layers were also leftover pieces from the same patterned paper pad but from leftovers of other projects.

I printed the images onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock using my Brother Laser Printer then coloured them up using Copic Markers.

I even have a video to share with you. It is very hot here at the moment which means my markers were not playing all that nice for me while I was colouring these images up. I did however get them all coloured up and onto a card.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Today I am sharing with you my last Time For Designs card for 2018. I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone, it’s crazy.

I have made an early Easter card haha.. or is it late Easter card… who knows.

Using Easter Chick, I printed it onto X-Press It Blending Card using my Brother Laser Printer.

Once I had the image printed I coloured it up using Copic Markers then ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Stitched Rectangle Die from Lawn Fawn. I have linked up some other options incase you can’t track this one down.

I ran a Poppy Stamps die called “Fuzzy Bunnies” (unfortunately this one is retired) through my Big Shot using some leftover X-Press It Blending Card. I added some Rosie cheeks using Copic Markers.

I used some patterned papers from The Craft Stall (purchased from Kmart) I love the patterned paper sheet, it reminds me of the sprinkles on a donut 🙂

I ran some green card stock through my Big Shot using a Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders die.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Eggstra Special Easter, I stamped it onto some leftover X-Press It Blending Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black, trimmed using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors.

All the plain card stock is from American Crafts and all the big layers were adhered using Scotch ATG, the die cuts were added using American Tombow Mono Multi.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).

Ultra Last Minute Digi Stamp Card Making Tutorial

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!! Jo here with an ultra last minute card making. Tutorial using the images from the You’re Snow Cool Digi Stamp Collection. These Digis are perfect for those last minute cards or for just some fun Christmas Eve crafting! Click the image below to get your Digi stamps.

There’s an accompanying video that you can see here!

Although there is no commentary in today’s video you can see how I coloured in my images using my Copic Markers.

I’ve listed the colours I used on screen in the video. There is a still photo showing the colours below for your reference too.

To add some knitted detail to the snowman’s jumper I used a darker marker and added small V shapes in lines across the shape.

I coloured up the accessories and added some stripes to the red scarf using a white Gelly Roll pen. You will see in the final card I didn’t end up using the scarf or stocking accessories.

Once all my images were coloured I fussy cut them leaving a small white border around them. I then prepared my background.

I used an A6 top folding card blank for for my base and cut a scalloped rectangle from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day Paper pack.

I then used some stitched hillside borders that I had in my stash (possibly Lawn Fawn) out of white card stock to layer up on the bottom of my focal panel.

The next step was to ‘dress’ my snowman by adhered the clothes to him using liquid adhesive.

I also added the mistletoe to the one of the snowman’s hands as I think it went perfectly with the sentiment and the snowman’s cheeky wink! 😉

I also used liquid adhesive to attached my patterned paper to my card base.

The first and largest of my slopes was attached flat using liquid adhesive.

I then used foam adhesive to attached my smaller slope so it had dimension.

I added foam adhesive tabs to the back of my snowman.

I positioned my snowman in the centre of the largest snow slope.

My sentiment was printed out and then backed on white cardstock and cut using a small rectangle nesting Die.

My sentiment was adhered with foam tabs and placed in the top centre of my focal panel.

The finishing touch was to add some pearl drops to the accessories on the snowman and to the snow slopes. I find the best technique to add this is a slight swirling motion before picking up your bottle. Although you will see a small peak while the liquid is still wet, as it dries this settles into a rounded drop shape. It’s like magic! And they look so pretty too, like sparkly drops of snow.

I really hope you like this last minute tutorial and are having a fabulously crafty Christmas! I’ll be back later this holiday with a Guveaway and some news about our nNew Year Designs Team Call so stay tuned!

Merry Christmas! Xxx

New Card Tutorial with Seasons Tweetings Digi Stamp Set

Hi there everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous week and are getting in the Christmas spirit!

I’m still here making Christmas cards and don’t really want to stop as I’ve loved using these Christmas images. I’m sorry I’m a bit delayed posting this card. I meant to get it uploaded at the weekend but as always life got in the way! 🙃

There is still time to get your Christmas cards done and posted so I hope this card gives you some inspiration. The great thing about Digi stamps is they can be downloaded instantly so there’s no waiting for the Christmas post to arrive! #winning

There is also a video tutorial to go with it which you can find here.

The Digi Set I’m using is the Time For Tea Seasons Tweetings Collections. Click the image below to go straight to the shop.

I started my card by colouring these super cute Robins with my Copic Markers. I’ve listed the colours I used on the image below.

The YouTube video features the speed colouring of these images and my commentary if you like that kind of thing :).

Once all my images are coloured I like to add highlights using my Sakura Gelly Roll White pen. This is a new one in size 0.8m which I love!

I then fussy cut my images out using some decoupage scissors.

To create my background I took some Kraft Cardstock cut to the same size as my A6 card base.

I then took an Echo Park Snow Stencil and used Versamark Embossing Ink to stamps through the pattern.

After liberally applying the Versamark I sprinkled white Embossing powder over the surface of my card. I like the Nuvo white embossing powder. Plus it comes in a really gorgeous bottle which looks great on my craft table. 🙂

I tapped off the excess ready to apply heat. I use small plastic tubs for storing my powders individually. This way when I tap off my excess it doesn’t go everywhere and is easier to the tip back into my pot to reuse.

I turn my heat gun on for 30 seconds or so before moving it to my card. This helps minimise warping of the Card as you add continuous heat.

Once my embossed panel had cooled and dried I then adhered it to my side folding card base using liquid adhesive. The Cosmic shimmer glue is by far my favourite at the moment and it allows me time to line up my panel perfectly before it fully dries.

I next cut a snowy slope out of plain white cardstock using a slopes border die that I had in my stash. I adhered this to my card base again with liquid adhesive and trimmed the edges to size.

I now start to arrange my images onto my background starting with my branch. I place this on the right of my card filling the blank space above my slope leaving enough room above it for my Robins to perch.

In the picture below I have used a frame that I cut from plain white cardstock using a scalloped rectangle nesting Die. I used this frame as a guide to help me position the branch with my Robins to make sure they fit comfortably inside it.

Once I was happy with the position of my branch and Robins I adhered the hats to two of the smaller images using a dot of liquid adhesive.

I used foam squares to adhere my Robins and to add some dimension. The ones I’m using here are from Create and Craft but you can use any you have in your stash. These small squares are really handy for smaller images like this but you can always cut down larger ones if you don’t have the right sizes. If you cut while the backing paper is still adhered this will prevent your scissors getting blooped up with glue.

Once all my images were adhered I added my sentiment which I’d cut using a small round cornered rectangle nesting Die from my stash. I used foam pads again to adhere this.

To adhere my frame I used narrow shaker tape that was the same depth as my foam tape. This means that the frame will be on the same level as my images and sit proud of my background. This creates great dimension and frames the background and images really well. When applying shaker tape to a frame that needs to be matched exactly to the border of my card base I like to leave myself some wiggle room. I do this by only removing part of the backing tape from each side. You can see the tabs sticking out in the picture below.

I line up my frame without applying too much pressure until I’m sure I have it positioned correctly. Once I’m happy I apply pressure to the areas with the backing paper removed and then I remove the rest of the tape to fully secure my frame.

The final step was to add a touch of bling with a couple of red gems to opposite corners of my sentiment tag.

Here are some photos of the completed card with some close ups on the Robins and sentiment tag. You can really see the dimension the frame creates in the close ups and I love how the images looked when they’re coloured. They really come to life. I feel like these cuties would make a cool stamp set one day. Le5 me know in the comments if you agree!

I’m quite a bit behind with my Christmas Cards and have a couple more tutorials I’d love to share before Christmas so please follow and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss a thing!

Have a great evening!
