Time For Tea Designs - It's Elephantastic!

Happy Tuesday friends! Are you ready for your weekly dose of inspiration from Time For Tea Designs? I know I am! Don't forget that you can (and should) play along in our monthly challenge, for your chance to win free digis! Everyone loves free digis, am I right? The theme for our challenge is Anything Goes. My favorite! It's so easy to enter - just make something using your Time For Tea Designs images and post them! Share with the hashtag #timeforteadesigns so we can find them, and you're entered to win! Challenges run monthly, and we will have a spotlight and a prize winner at the end of each challenge. Oh, and I have a discount code for you to use - T4TJENNIFER10 will save you 10% on your order from the Time For Tea shop! Yayyyy :)

Today's project features more of the new release stamps, dies and stencils that dropped yesterday. These are available exclusively from Create & Craft TV. I've used stamps and dies from the Elephantastic collection, how CUTE are these??? I'm in LOVE!



I've stamped the elephant images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them up with Copic Markers - I buy all of mine at Scrapbookpal.com for their fast shipping and awesome service. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. 

The sentiment is also from the stamp set, they are ALL individual words, which is AMAZING. It makes it so easy to mix and match to create lots of different custom sentiments and work the magic to make the words fit into dies or onto specific places on your project! To accomplish this perfect sentiment banner, I've used my Mini MISTI, of course. There's no way I could stamp anything that straight without it!! 

This is an INTERACTIVE circle card. The first time I've made one - they are SO FUN! I have a short video on my Instagram HERE if you 'd like to see it in action! The flip of these happy elephants just makes me smile. Additional dies from Sizzix and Craftin' Desert Divas. Paper from Echo Park. Gems from Kaisercraft. Lots and lots of foam squares for dimension (see video!).

I hope you enjoyed my project today. If you've got a moment, head over to join our FB communityfollow us on Instagram, and don't forget to play along with our monthly challenges by tagging #timeforteadesigns - so easy! Thanks for stopping by!

Beard With Me by Penny Reid is LIVE!

BWM-RBANNER

“This is Penny Reid at her finest.” -- L.B. Dunbar, author

Beard With Me, an epic and breathtaking story from New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Penny Reid, is available now!

KDP_BWM
No one is better at surviving than Scarlet St. Claire and making the best out of circumstances beyond her control is Scarlet’s specialty. In an apocalyptic situation, she’d be the last person on earth, hermitting like a pro, singing along to her CD Walkman, and dancing like no one is watching.
Scarlet is clever, Scarlet is careful, and Scarlet is smart . . . except when it comes to Billy Winston.
No one is better at fighting than Billy Winston and raging against his circumstances—because nothing is beyond his control—is Billy’s specialty. In an apocalyptic situation, he’d be the first person on earth to lead others to safety, overcome catastrophe, or die trying.
Billy is fearless, Billy is disciplined, and Billy is honorable . . . except when it comes to Scarlet St. Claire.
‘Beard With Me’ is the origin story of Billy Winston and Scarlet St. Claire (aka Claire McClure) and is just the beginning of their epic love story.

Polkadoodles' Gem of a Challenge - Week 18: Anything Goes!

Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. This morning I'd like to announce that I've joined the group of amazing designers at A Gem of a Challenge - where we feature Pink Gems Designs digistamps available from the Polkadoodles digi store! Nikky carries a wide range of Pink Gems digis - you've got one stop shopping all under one umbrella here. There's something for everyone!

Our Gem of a Challenges run for 2 weeks, so you've got lots of time to link up. Check out the challenge blog HERE

Our challenge is, as always, Anything Goes! Yay!


For today's project I've created a full fall-themed card (think back to school!) featuring Unicorn Halloween. I just love these Pink Gems animals - there is a whole range of images for all occasions, and they're completely adorable! Most of my papers are from Winnie Wednesday (a Halloween collection - you MUST see!) which I use a LOT because they have much more than just Halloween. Fall colors, even some nice neutrals and greens that are great for Christmas! The white polka dot paper is from Winnie Celebrations 3, Papers 1

The sentiment is from the Hey Pumpkin clear stamp set, which I've lined up and stamped several times to create a flag shape. To do this, I used my Mini MISTI, of course. There's no way I could stamp anything that straight without it!! I've also used one of he larger of the Fanciful Circles dies (you know how much I love these!) to create part of the background.



Today's image is precolored, love having this option for when you need a card in a hurry! The card layout here is from an old Mojo Monday sketch, which is actually still up and running on Julee's personal blog here if you want to check it out. It's one of my Top 3 sketch challenges over the years; so much great inspiration!

I'm entering this into the following challenges -
