Time For Tea Designs, Life's Ups & Downs


I have been extremely busy with the new releases from Polkadoodles so have only just got around to playing with my stamps and dies from Time For Tea Designs latest release. I feel very behind, they must be about due a new one.


So without further ado here they are


There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

 Card Making Tutorial

 The images were stamped, coloured and cut out


Meanwhile the autumn scene cover plate was used with a variety of colours of card that I found in my scrap box

The tree was cut in Kraft card and blended in distress ink

The grass and frame were cut in green and the grass was also cut in green and blended with distress ink.

A A5 card base was blended with Tumbled glass and the cloudy day stencil was used with the Iced Spruce

The green frame was adhered over the edge

The tree and grass were adhered

Leaves and the stamped images were arranged

The sentiment was heat embossed onto Kraft card and again blended in the distress ink. This was then trimmed and the corners rounded

This was adhered onto the tree

Thank you for reading

Happy Crafting
