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:

and this fabulous card using the Onesie day digital stamp:

Ho Ho Ho Seasons Tweetings Card Tutorial

Hi there! I hope you are well on this Friday evening! Jo here with a new card making tutorial and video using the new Seasons Tweetings Digi Stamp Set.

Today’s card features 3 of the Robin images from the set with 2 of the hat accessories, the ‘From All Of Us’ sentiment and 2 of the mistletoe branches.

All of my images are printed onto super smooth paper suitable for alcohol markers and then backed with ordinary white cardstock to make them a little more sturdy.

Once coloured with my my copic markers I fussy cut all of my images ready to be positioned on my card. You can find a colouring tutorial in my previous blog post here. I used the same colour combinations for this card which is why the colouring process isn’t included in this tutorial or the accompanying YouTube Video.

For the background of my card I used a My Favourite Things Die, HOHOHO. I got mine from Seven Hills Crafts.

The Die works with both the negative and positive space. It also cuts three different centre pieces for the ‘O’s and elements from the ‘H’s so that you can layer the letters up using different coloured card or paper for different effects.

For this card I will be using the negative space cut out of a piece of white cardstock.

Whilst I had this Die set out I realised that one of the Dies made for one of the H’s actually fit my sentiment perfectly so I used this to neatly cut this out.

I then cut my Cardstock to size to fit onto an A6 card. I did this using one of the Duo Dies Scalloped Rectangles.

So my die cut sentiment stands out I placed a piece of patterned paper behind it. This paper was from the Lawn Fawn Snow Days 6×6 Paper Pack (also from Sevenhills Crafts).

I attached my Cardstock to the patterned paper using shaker tape. This ensured that all the small areas were covered. It was important to fill all the gaps with tape to ensure that the card didn’t bow or bend when it’s completed and put in the post, etc.

Attaching foam tape to you card can be tricky, especially lining things up accurately first time. The tape doesn’t allow for mistakes and lets face it mistakes do happen!! To try and give myself a safety net I left the backing tape attached to the outside runs of tape. I then turned back part of the tape on each corner. You can see on the photo above the tabs that were folded back sticking out around the card.

Once the card was lined up where I liked it on the paper I was able to press down the corners where the tape was exposed. If at this point I was unhappy with how I’d lined things up, only the corners would be stuck down so it would be much easier to readjust without destroying the backing paper. Once completely happy I can then pull out the rest of the backing paper and press down firmly.

I then selected a contrasting piece of patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky Fall 6×6 Paper Pack. I have used traditional reds and greens throughout this card. I usually pick 3 colours for my theme plus the card itself which typically for me tends to be white. this is just personal preference. I think restricting my colour palette in this way also helps things look cohesive and balanced.

I cut my patterned paper to size & adhered it to my A6 top folding card blank using liquid adhesive.

I next adhered my die cut sentiment panel to the card base using liquid adhesive.

My Robins were different widths so I spent some time deciding where on the front of my card they would fit best without obscuring the sentiment.

Once I was happy with the position of my images I adhered them to my focal panel using foam pads.

Here are my 3 cute little Robins positioned around the die cut sentiment.

I then took the elements die cut from the centre of my ‘O’s and added them to the negative spaces in the ‘O’s on my patterned paper. That was the star or snowflake and the circle pieces of card. I used liquid glue to attach these.

I then took my die cut sentiment and used my glue to add that to the bottom right hand corner.

I then added my mistletoe branches, one just above my sentiment and one in the top right hand corner.

I used a red gem to add some sparkle to the centre of my snowflake.

In need of more Christmassy Shimmer I grabbed this bottle of Pearly Stuff which is a shimmery liquid which when applied to your project creates 3D pearl drops that harden once dry. You can control the height and size of your Pearl depending on the pressure you apply when squeezing out the liquid.

I only applied slight pressure to add a little Shimmer to the berries on my mistletoe branches.

I also added a further red gem to the centre of the third ‘O’ as I felt it was missing something. The other two’O’s had an embellishment so without this gem it looked a little left out!

Finally I added 3 more gems to the blank white space above the first ‘Ho’. This was because I felt the card lacked balance. The sub sentiment and mistletoe branch in the bottom left hand corner was throwing things off slightly. By adding these 3 gems the balance diagonally across the card front was restored.

Here is the card complete.

And here are some close up pictures of my Robins. I loved colouring these guys and creating this card. I really hope you like them too and enjoyed this tutorial and video.

I’d love to hear your comments and please do subscribe to my Youtube channel for regular videos and tutorials. You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram for loads more inspiration from the whole T4TD team.

Adorable Elf Robin!

Oh so cute with his present!

Looking spiffy in his top hat!

Season’s Tweetings with DT Deni

Isn’t this little guy from Time For Tea Design’s Season’s Tweetings Release gorgeous 🙂

He can come to my party anytime haha.

I printed him out on my Brother Laser Printer using X-Press It Blending Cardstock then coloured him using Copic Markers.

I ran the image/Sentiment through my Gemini (The Big One) using an MFT Stamps Stitched Rounded Rectangles die, I used some Washi Tape so when I flipped the paper over to run it through it didn’t move.

I ran the die through again using some patterned paper and the same rectangle die.

Using some more of the patterned paper (which was from Kaisercraft Mistletoe Paper Pad), I cut a layer to size, and also a small strip for the bottom of my image then created a mat from American Crafts cardstock.

I adhered all the layers to a Couture Creations Cardbase using Scotch ATG.

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).

Seasons Greetings – Warm Winter Wishes Card Tutorial

Hi guys, Jo here with a card tutorial using the new Seasons Tweetings Digi stamps. This tutorial also uses a free SVG sentiment file ‘Warm Winter Wishes’. Details of how you can get hold of your free sentiment are further along in this post!

Here’s the card that I made using one of the cute robins from the set. This robin has a huge cup of hot chocolate with cream on top and some adorable ear muffs to keep his ears warm. I wanted hi. To be the focal point of my card so I kept the rest of the design very simple just using some patterned paper, inking and sequins to decorate.

While colouring my Robin I decided to colour all the images from the set as I had them all printed out. They were so much fun to colour and so simple too. If you’d like to learn more about my colouring process you can watch me in action in the YouTube video below. You can also see the complete card making process there too.

Time For Tea Designs on YouTube

You’ll also find other card and colouring tutorials on my YouTube channel and I have more planned for the next few weeks so please like & subscribe to make sure you catch them.

If you would like to know the colours I used just for the Robin I used here I’ve added a Copic Colour Map for you to refer to.

Shown below are some of the basic colours I used to colour each of my Robins in turn.

The E colours were used for the Robins bodies, R colours for his red breast and the Y colours for his beak.

I then used a combination of B, BG and YG colours to add his accessories. R20 & R32 were used to add small highlights to the cream on the hot chocolate.

All of the colours I chose were both traditional and coordinated with the paper pack I chose to use.

I printed my images onto Create and Craft Super smooth paper. This is because I love the smooth paper for plotting with my Copic markers but also because my printer won’t take card any thicker than this. In order to achieve a more sturdy image to adding to the focal panel of my card I always back my images with standard white cardstock.

For the base of my card I used paper from the Echo Park Winter Park 6×6 paper pad.

The great thing about this pad is it’s double sided and is made up of coordinating colours. I used the reverse of the paper I chose to cut out my sentiment so it matched perfectly.

I used Cosmic Shimmer liquid glue to adhere my paper to my card base. For this design I’m using an A6 size card blank.

I next cut out a piece of 300gsm Watercolour paper slightly smaller than my card base so that the patterned paper creates a border around the outside edge.

In the video you will see how I created my water colour background in more detail. In brief, I started with a pink distress marker from Time Holtz. I applied water directly to my Cardstock and then rubbed my marker across the dampened surface. Using my water brush I gently smudged the colour into the paper and moved the colour around randomly. I applied some of the colour to an acrylic block and dipped my brush into it before brushing into the paper.

I let this dry and felt it wasn’t quite strong enough in colour of texture so I repeated the process but with a distress ink pad applied onto my acrylic block as you can see above.

To create texture I applied a lot of water before adding my colour and then tipped my card up to allow the paint to drip and move randomly around the page.

Once dried I adhered the Cardstock to my card base using Cosmic Shimmer glue.

This is where I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out my sentiment onto the coordinating paper from the Winter Park paper pad.

Warm Winter Wishes is free with every purchase of the Seasons Tweetings Digi Collection this weekend.

You can get your Digis & free sentiment here.

I again used My Cosmic Shimmer glue to attached my sentiment to the water colour focal panel. I started by placing the Wishes at the base of the panel and stacking each word on top. By starting from the bottom and working upwards you ensure you have enough room for each of your words to fit on your panel.

I the. Applied my Robin image using foam pads to create dimension.

To create some sparkle – it is Christmas after all!! – I added some gems as the dots for the i’s.

I then dotted glue randomly all around my Robin where I felt my gems and sequins would look the best.

This completed my card and I really love how it turned out. I hope you like it and the new tutorial. I’d love to hear what you think so please leave a comment below or get in touch on the Time For Tea Designs FB or IG pages.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

Spooky with DT Deni

Good Morning all,

A few days ago I shared another card for Time For Tea Designs, I have used the same Digital Image because I totally love it, this is Furr-reaking Halloween Full Collection (you can find the affiliate link below) I have used the little kitty cat and the broom on my card.

I printed the images onto X-press It Blending Cardstock then coloured them using Copic Markers.

Patterned papers came from DCWV Spooky Halloween, I used one sheet for the background layer and another for the circle, I also used some leftover pieces for the inside decoration of my card. I ran one piece through my Sizzix Big Shot using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Die.

I cut some black cardstock from American Crafts to use as the bottom layer, which I adhered to a Twiddleybitz Card Base using Scotch ATG. I fussy cut the images using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors, I then carefully went around the edges using a Tombow ABY N15 Dual end marker, and adhered them to the circle using American Tombow Mono Multi liquid adhesive.

I cut some little banners using some excess pieces of the patterned paper, I used Scotch ATG to adhere them.

I adhered all the layers to a Couture Creations card base.

Finally to finish my card off I grabbed some Nuvo Crystal Drops Glow In The Dark – in the Apple Sour and Banana Split and added some drops to my card. They finished it perfectly and look awesome, can’t believe I hadn’t used them yet 🙂

Furr-eakingly Good Halloween Treat Bags – a Tutorial

Hi guys! Jo here with my post to accompany the new YouTube video using the Furr-eakingly Good Halloween Set. A day later than promised!! I’m so sorry.

This week has been so hectic in the shop with extra parties to host, plus I’ve had technical problems putting together my Copic Colour Map as the app I usually use has decided to completely update and change so I no longer know how to use it!!😡 so frustrating!

Any way enough of my time management issues 😂 Let’s get into the crafting!

Below is the link to the YouTube tutorial.

Furr-eakingly Good Halloween Treat Bag Tutorial

The start of the video I demonstrate how I made the treat bags using the We Are Memory Keeps Gift Bag Punch. This was a great little tool to make the making of these bags so much quicker. What I wish I’d done in the tutorial video was slow things down a little more so that you could see the steps a little clearer. However, the video was getting really long and I didn’t want you all falling asleep so I decided to do a quick run through and make sure I was able to include all parts of my process.

The papers I used were part of two digital collections by Echo Park, Halloween and Halloween Town.

After putting my bags together I Set about sizing and printing my images onto super smooth paper. I then Coloured them with my Copic Markers. I will attach a Colour Map once I figure out how 😊👍🏼 Details of the colours I used are in the video though if you can’t wait.

As my printer doesn’t take very thick paper or card stock once I’d coloured my images I did adhere them to plain white card before fussy cutting them out. This just makes them that bit more sturdy and ensures they stand proudly on your project once adhered.

The next part of my process was to create some background pieces for my images to sit on. I knew I wanted to layer up some velum die cut shapes and simple circle dies cuts onto the front of the bags so I went ahead and cut a few differing sized shapes from some white and purple velum as well as some circles from white cardstock. I then decided it would really cute to layer a night sky onto the white card for some extra interest.

To create my night sky I first used distress ink in Dusty Concord, Weathered Wood and the some Momento Tuxedo Black onto super smooth white cardstock. I used a blender tool to blend in each colour one after the other until I’d built the look the I wanted. I then spritzed some water over the top to create some blurry star effects, however this wasn’t giving me the starry sky effect I’d originally wanted. To achieve that I took some Daler Rowney white Acrylic Ink and splattered it onto my distress inked background. This created a random selection of ‘splats’ or dots that look like stars in the night sky! Yay! Success!

I the used my circle nesting dies to cut out my favourite pieces of sky.

Once I’d got all my elements cut out it was time for the really fun bit which was deciding which backgrounds and which images to use on each bag.

My process involved choosing colours that complimented and contrasted with the papers and also getting a nice balance across the project. For example in the above picture the bat is on the opposite side to the bristles on the broom. This is further balanced out with the use of the sentiment which has been cut up with the ‘Halloween’ being placed on an angle opposite to that of the bat above.

The finishing touch was to punch holes in the bags to slot through ribbons in contrasting colours.

I was really pleased with how these turned out in the end. They were so much fun to create and look adorable.

I hope it’s been a useful project and has inspired you to make your own treat bags using digital elements to decorate them!

And Happy Belated Halloween everyone! 😊🎃👻🎃

Furr-reaking Halloween with DT Deni

Hi Everyone, Deni with you today.

More Halloween cards are being pumped out of my craft room at the moment and it is making me so happy 🙂

Today I am breaking out the next new release from Time For Tea Designs – this is Furr-reaking Halloween Full Collection (you can find the affiliate link below) I have used the little kitty cat and the broom on my card. One of the sentiments was also used.

Patterned papers came from DCWV Spooky Halloween, I used one sheet for the background layer and another for the banner on the left, I also used some leftover pieces for the inside decoration of my card.

I cut some black cardstock from American Crafts to use as the bottom layer, which I adhered to a Twiddleybitz Card Base using Scotch ATG. I then added them patterned piece and the banner piece.

I printed the images onto X-press It Blending Cardstock then coloured them using Copic Markers.

After colouring the image I inked the background using Ranger Distress Inks and a mini ink blending tool to blend a night background, even though I didn’t use watercolour paper I was able to spray very lightly with water to create the watery effect. I then used a white gel pen to create stars.

Once the images and background was coloured up I used my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors to fussy cut the image, I then used a black marker to edge it.  Once I had the images ready to go, I carefully used a Pen Knife to cut his feet so I could slide the broom underneath and adhered it using American Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive.

I then adhered the circle to the patterned papers, then the sentiment I slid under the tail and trimmed off the extras.

Once I thought my card was done I grabbed some Nuvo Crystal Drops in the Glow In the Dark colours to add some dots, I carefully tapped my card on my desk to create the dome shapes before they dried.

And wow are these glow in the dark Nuvo drops are awesome! So so cool 🙂 Check them out if you can cause you definitely want some. That reminds me im sure I purchased some glow in the dark embossing powder I will have to give that a try soon.

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).

Frankencutie with DT Deni

Hi Everyone,

Deni with you today, as the Month of Halloween continues I am having so much fun creating Halloween cards.

Today I have used Frankencutie from Time For Tea Designs on my card, she is a digital stamp and perfect for Halloween.

I have printed the image onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock then coloured her up using Copic Markers. I wanted to stick with the Frankenstein type of look for this image so I decided to colour her up using Green Copic Markers for her skin.

image 0

I also had this great idea to give her orange dipped black hair and it turned out exactly as I had expected and I love it 🙂

I will have all the Copic Markers used at the end of my blog post incase you want to try out some new combos.

The image was cut out using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle (I have my large and small in one package so i’m not sure which size I used), I ran the die through my Sizzix Big Shot.

I used a paper pad from DCWV called Mat Stack Spooky Halloween, it is the smaller 6×6 Paper Pad as I love the smaller designs on the smaller sheets. All these pieces were adhered to a Twiddleybitz Card Base using American Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive.

I added a few different embellishment die cuts on my card, unfortunately a lot of the them are retired but they are my favourite Halloween bits and pieces so I continue to use them.

I adhered all the bits and pieces using American Tombow Mono Multi liquid adhesive, this is my go to liquid adhesive.

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).

Furr-eakingly Good Halloween Card Making Tutorial

Hi everyone! It’s Jo here today with a new card making tutorial featuring the brand new Digi Collection Furr-eakingly Good Halloween.

I’m sorry for delay posting this as I had intended to post it along with the release on Monday, however, I had some technical difficulties with the video tutorial which I wanted to include. I’m a real novice when it comes to videos and YouTube so please bear with me as I learn as I go. I really hope you like the tutorial and the new collection.

This card was really so simple to make and the kitty is so cute with his bat pal that I can see me making more of these to give out this Halloween. I also think these images would look super cute on candy treat bags to hand out to trick or treaters!

You can get hold of the Furr-eaking Halloween Collection here:
