The Pies The Limit!

Hello there!

I’m sharing a card today made with the brand new Time For Tea Designs New Release . I’ve used the Bake My Day clear stamps and the Small Heart XOXO Die Set.

I wanted to make a fun shaker card so I also used the Line Em Up Stencil for background paper.

These stamps are so sweet and the oven door leaves a cut so that you open the door. How fun is that! There are lots of accessories too with the stamp set.

I filled my shaker with some sweet treats embellishments

Crafty Cats Video Tutorial

Hello 👋🏽

I have a video up on my channel today sharing the new Time For Tea Designs May Release.

You can view the tutorial here:

I used a standard square card for my video today, but feel free to use any card size that you like.

To start with I trimmed down a smaller panel of white card and used the Scene It Stencil and distress ink. I applied the ink to the card using the Beautiful blending brushes.

Once the sky background was completed I then used the grass stencil and applied this onto a separate piece of white card. I didn’t apply the ink onto the sky background as I will be fussy cut this grass piece out.

I am going to have the rainbow tucked behind the grass piece. Once I trimmed the grass piece out I reapplied the ink over the top.

I adhered the grass piece down but left the top of the grass with no adhesive so that the rainbow can be placed behind this. To make the rainbow I used the Circle Of Love Nesting Die and used different pieces of card to cut out each circle. You will need to use two circle dies to get a frame. Once all your colours are die cut I adhered them all onto a piece of card. You will be left with a big circle. I then trimmed the whole circle out then trimmed the circle in half. You will now be left with a rainbow.

I then stamped out my images using the gorgeous Crafty Cats Clear Stamps and I used my copic markers to colour them in. I then used theCrafty Cats Coordinating Dies to die cut the images out.

Jo has designed lots of accessories with this stamp set so I highly recommend getting the dies if you can they are fantastic and take all the hard work out than using a pair of scissors.

I then used the sentiment that comes with the stamp set Craft Supplies Before Guys and I heat embossed this with white embossing powder onto a piece of black card. I then used my heat gun to heat set the sentiment.

I trimmed the sentiment down and applied some foam tape to the back of my ink blended panel. I also added some more clouds to my card blank with the Scene It Stencil.

Once this was complete I adhered all the images down and added some pearl drops and glitter.

Your card is now complete. Thanks so much for stopping by today and you can view all the beautiful Time For Tea Designs Products Here.
Have a lovely day!

Mini Gift Boxes

Hello crafty friends I hope your keeping well.

These cute little gift boxes are made with the Time For Tea Designs Mini Gift Box Die and they are adorable! I seriously had lots of fun putting the boxes together and they are super easy to make as the score lines are already there after die cutting! They are great for party favours too.

To make the boxes I also used the Crafty Cats Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies along with the Bearing Gifts Stamp Set .

I firstly die cut the box die using some Trimcraft paper peonies paper and used the heart and semi circle die as the window. I then added a piece of acetate behind the window before putting the box together. I added some sweets before tying the top together.
Once the box was completed I added my images.

I love how these turned out and they we’re really fun to put together.

I think they look so sweet and it’s surprising how much you can fit into them.
You can also leave the window out if you just wanted a box that doesn’t show through.

Time For Tea Designs May Release

Hello friends!

The gorgeous Time For Tea Designs May Release is here yay! It’s full of so many cute images and the dies are beautiful!
I have used the Crafty Cats Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies along with the fun Scene It 6×6 stencil .

I used a DL card to make this long card and I added some distress ink and used the Beautiful Blending Brushes . If you haven’t tried these blending brushes I highly recommend you do they make ink blending easy peasy!

I coloured my images with copic markers and went for a soft look. I also heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on kraft card.

To die cut the greetings I used the banners from the Best Fishes Banner And Border Die Set.

Thank you box card

Hello friends.

I’m up on the papermilldirect blog today with a fun box card that also folds to fit into your standard size envelopes.

I used:

Raspberry Pink Plain Card 240gsm
Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm
White Card Super Smooth 250gsm
Violet Plain Card 290gsm

You will also need the following craft supplies:
Paper Trimmer
Scoring board
Critter stamps I used Hello Bluebird
Rectangle Die or any shape die ( this will be for your window)
White embossing powder
Heat gun
Foam Tape
Pva glue
To start with you will need to cut down two pieces of card to the following measurements:
5 inches by 3/4 then turn the card and trim at 4 1/2
Next score a line at 4 1/2 and 5 1/4 inches.
Next using one piece of card I die cut a rectangle so that when the box is put together this will be showing the inside. Depending on the size of your die you will need to trim the side of your box flap so that once it’s all adhered it will all fit together nicely. I did adhere my box together before working on the inside of the box.
For the inside I trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm to A6 size and ink blended the background using inks. I coloured all my images and trimmed them out. I then die cut some grass using Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm and adhered this to the bottom of my insert and also behind the die cut piece of box.
Next I adhered the A6 piece into my box using double sided tape, I then added all the critters using foam tape and PVA glue.
For my greeting I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of Violet Plain Card 290gsmand heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I trimmed this down and adhered acetate to the sentiment and adhered onto the bottom of the box.
Your box card is now complete.
You can trim down a smaller piece of card and adhere to the back of your box to write your sentiment.
I hope you have fun making some box cards.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Enjoy the little things in life

Hello friends!


I hope your all keeping well. I wanted to make a sweet happy and colourful card and used the gorgeous Let the sun shine stamps and Snail mail stamp set. I also added a cute worm from the Worm wishes. These images are just a ray of sunshine and I had so much fun colouring them in!

To start with I ink blended the background using some distress ink in pink, blue and green. Once this is complete I adhered this to my card base. I then coloured in the images using copic markers and cut them out. I then adhered the images to my card with foam tape.

For the sentiment I used some bright pink card and heat embossed the greeting using white embossing powder. I then trimmed this down and adhered this onto my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
