Time For Tea Designs Card Video

Hello there! I have a fun cardmaking tutorial that you can watch Here using some brand new goodies from the November release.

I have used the Die-namic Display Card Die for my video today along with the adorable Skating By Penguins Stamp & Die Set for my critters. I have also used the Let It Snow Die and some gorgeous snowflakes using the Falalala Slimline Die.
I first started by putting the card together. I die cut all the pieces using my die cutting machine and the Die-namic Display Card Die. In the video I will also show you how to create a curved line at the top of your card. I then adhered the card together using PVA glue.
I then stamped and coloured in the adorable penguins. I used my copic markers to colour them in and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next I die cut the sentiment using the Let It Snow Die and adhered this onto the back of my card. I also added some white paint to my card so that it looks like snow.
Using the Falalala Slimline Die I die cut out some snowflakes and adhered them onto my card. These snowflakes are so delicate and pretty. Your card is now complete.

Ahoy Matey

Hi there! I’m up on the magengo blog today with a fun card.

I used the Ahoy Aoy Stamp Set. How cute are these stamps! I absolutely love them and this stamp is jam packed with images.
For my card today I used a light blue card for my base and I die cut a zigzag card panel using Sunny Studio Stamps die. I then ink blended some waves onto my background using some distress ink in tumbled glass. I then die cut some clouds in white card and lightly ink blended the edges again using tumbled glass distress ink.
Using my silhouette machine I die cut the boat and used my inks to colour the boat. I then added an octopus and used my inks to colour the octopus in. I added a smiley face to the octopus.
I then printed and coloured my stamps and coloured in the images with copic markers,. I then cut them out and started to adhere the images to my card. I didn’t have a sentiment that said Ahoy Matey so I used my silhouette machine to die cut the greeting. I used my markers to colour the greeting before adhering them onto my card. I loved how this turned out and those images are just so cute!

Honey Friends Bear Card

Hello there!

I’m sharing a fun card today on the Magengo blog.

I’m sharing a sweet card today using the Honey Friend stamp set. These stamps are just so cute and I love the bear that’s found the honeypot!

I wanted to make a slimline card for my images as I can fit more on the card than a standard size card. I firstly printed the stamps out and then coloured them in with my markers. After the colouring was complete I trimmed them out with my scissors. Next I used some distress ink to add some colour to my card. 

Once the ink blending was completed I adhered my images onto the card base. I then added a die cut to the top of the tree and adhered my sentiment.

To finish my card off I added some dovecraft enamel dots to the honey jar so it looks like honey leaking out of the jar. I then adhered some yellow and gold sequins onto my card. The bears and bees were so fun to colour!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

A Card Full Of Critters

Hey crafty friends, I hope your having a good week.

I wanted to make a card that’s crammed with cute Time For Tea Designs images. The best way for me to do this was to use a stepper card.

I cut my card using a silhouette machine along with the trees and started to put the card together. Once my stepper card was completed I started to stamp my images. I used Be Slothy Stamp SetSpeech Bubbles Stamp Set , Treat Yourself Stamp SetUp, Up & Away Stamp SetBearing Gifts Stamp Set ,Bears Picnic Stamp Set and the Be Owlsome Stamp Set. Once my images were all stamped I coloured the images in with my copic markers. Using the coordinating dies I then ran them through my die cutting machine. 

Next I used the Windmill Add On Die and using the fence die and some white card I ran this through my die cutting machine and adhered this onto the first fold of the stepper card. I then added some images to the card  using foam tape. For the owl, bear with a kite, sloth and greeting I added some acetate to the images and adhered them into my card to make it look like the images are floating. 

I loved how this card turned out and it’s fun to make too! You can use any stamps for this design I thought it would look really cute using the chosen images.

Emboss Resist Bumblebee Video

Hello crafty friends. I hope your having a lovely start to the weekend!

I have a fun Video Tutorial showing you how I created this card:


I wanted to make a shaped card and I used the Circle Of Love Nesting Die to make my card base.


I die cut 2 larger circles and a smaller circle using the next size down.

The two larger circles will be your card base and the smaller circle is what we will be working on.

On the piece that will be the back of your card score a line at the top about half an inch from the top, this will then be adhered onto the front circle. Making a circle shaped card.

Using theBuzzing For You Stamp Set I took both clouds from the stamp and stamped the clouds onto my circle panel using versamark ink. This will act as a glue for your embossing powder.


I then added white embossing powder over the clouds and heat set this with my heat gun.


Using some distress ink and a Beautiful blending brush I ink blended over the heat embossing. I then die cut some grass using the Landscape edge die.



I adhered the grass pieces to my card.


I then stamped my images using the Bee Happy Stamp Set and coloured the images in with my copic markers. I then added a sentiment To A Special Friend and heat embossed the greeting.



I adhered all my images down and added some sequins.
