Hello Sunshine with DT Deni

Hello Everyone!

I thought i’d share some sunshine and happiness with you all as we move our way through August we begin to realise how fast this year is going and how quickly we are moving through all the seasons. It is currently winter, I think we are just about finished now as the days are beginning to warm up a little.

I coloured up this gorgeous Sunflower Girl from Time For Tea Designs, she is a little cutie that I have had in my digital stash for a little while and came across her again today in my pre- coloured images (this is a tray i keep next to my desk of images I have coloured up and not used or sometimes I just have bulk colouring days and colour up a storm ready for projects).

The image was orgiginally released as Digital File – Sneaky info here – She will be getting released as a rubber woohoo 🙂 But shhh you didn’t hear that from me :-0

Don’t forget to check out our current challenge on the Time For Tea Blog here and you can check out the blog here.

She is coloured with Copic Markers however I do not have listed colours to share with you on her.

I started out by hunting down in my stash a patterned paper pad that would match the colours I had used on this image. I ended up going with American Crafts #Summer, it matched perfectly like I had done my image to match the papers haha.

I then began to cut all my mat layers from American Crafts/ Kaisercraft Cardstocks using my Cutterpillar Pro. I then layered them all using Scotch ATG.

Next I moved onto cutting patterned papers to add to the mat layers, I wrapped some Whimsy Farm Twine in Bella around the centre section. I added a doily using American Tombow Mono Multi.

I then added my image which had already previously been die cut on to the doily layer using X-Press It Mounting Tape and Scotch ATG. I also cut the sentiment from the same patterned paper pad and added the mat layers.

I then grabbed Lawn Fawn Spring Showers dies and ran them through my Crafters Companion Gemini using leftover bits of Cardstock, then adhered them using American Tombow Mono Multi.

Next I added all the layers onto a Pre-made Twiddleybitz Card Base using Scotch ATG. I also made extra layers for the inside of the card.

Lastly I added some Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow to finish off my project.

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).

DT Deni – On Your Special Day we give you coffee

Hi Everyone,

Well after Time For Tea Designs had a busy few days at the Doncaster Show, the Design Team were so proud of Jo for getting herself out there and we hear she had a great time meeting lots of fans of her work.

We hope you guys loved all the sample cards we (The Design Team) made for you to see all the new images and stamps.

Today I am sharing with you “Milkshake and Iced Coffee” such a sweet image to colour up and work with. She was one of the new Release Digital Images and she can be purchase on her own here and as a Full Collection here.

                                            

I coloured the image up using Copic Markers, there weren’t alot of colour involved because I wanted a simple style on my card.

I started by printing onto Mondi Color Copy 250 GSM and then moved onto colouring her skin, i’m still playing with the darker skin tone at the moment – Ell, E13, E15, E17 and R22 in her cheeks.

I coloured her hair using E23, E25, E27 and E29, I love the way the hair is drawn on the Time For Tea images, they are so easy and fun to colour. I also use the E23 to colour her eyes at the same time.

The To Go cup was coloured using E41,E42 and E44 I also coloured the ground using W1 and W4 but you don’t see much of it because I ended up fussy cutting the image out.

On the gorgeous dress and shoes I wanted to go with pinks so of course I grabbed my go to blend for pinks – R81, R83, R85.

I used some grey tones of Card Stock for my back layers – I think they are both American Crafts Cardstock, I used pieces that were left over in my container next to me. The pink card is from Canson Paper, the patterned papers I used Crate Paper – Love Notes 6×6 Paper Pad. You guys must think this is a never ending paper pad.. no its not haha I just try to use up every last piece in my paper pad so I make good use of them all.

I grabbed some heart dies from my stash – My Favorite Things Stitched Heart Stax, I ran them through my Sizzix Big Shot with some of the leftover patterned papers and a leftover piece from the Canson pink card.

I recently purchased the Cardmaking Magic – Christina Griffiths die – On Your Special Day from craft online, it only arrived a few days ago so was still sitting on my desk not put away yet 🙂

I ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot using the same grey card, and it also comes with the border so I ran that through with Mondi Color Copy 250 GSM (I had a small piece left over from another project).

I used some American Tombow Mono multi Liquid Adhesive to adhere the two layers together.

Now I start putting all the card together. All the mat layers I adhered together using Scotch ATG. The hearts, the young lady and the sentiment I adhered using American Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive.

I then adhered all those layers onto a Twiddleybitz Pre-Made Card Base using Scotch ATG.

Finally I added some Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Silver Moondust.

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).

A Little Birthday love with DT Deni

Hi Everyone,

Today I am using the gorgeous Birthday Bonnie from the New Releases For Time For Tea Designs.  She is available to purchase on her own and also as a Full Set which includes all the other bits and pieces.

You can check out all the other new releases at the Time For Tea Shop here.

I printed the image and the sentiment onto Mondi Color Copy and coloured the image up using Copic Markers. I know you haven’t seen much variety in mediums from me lately however I have been completely swamped with life lately and that doesn’t give me a lot of crafting time.

I used patterned papers from Fancy Pants Designs – Hopscotch 6×6 Paper pad, I added a doily from stash.

Most bits and pieces were cut on my Cutterpillar Pro and adhered using Scotch 3M ATG. I also used EK Success Cutterbee Scissors to fussy cut my image.

I adhered all the layers to a Twiddleybitz Card Base and finally added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Apple Green to finish my card off.
