It’s Par-Tea Time with Christy

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! The challenge gallery is filling up with some amazing creativity and there is room for yours too! The Challenge 125 – Dies Only is a 3-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, June 5 at 11:59PM ET. 

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Dies Only Challenge! Today I was excited to use the new Stitched Teapot dies. My Grandma ends every day with a cup of tea and it’s her birthday this month, so I thought this was the perfect time to create a tea-themed card for her.

I cut the base of the teapot out of Flower Market 6×6 paper and the rest of the teapot from Sugarplum Cardstock. I also die cut two flowers from the Sugarplum and the centers out of White Cardstock to dress up the teapot. Then I cut the tea bag out of White Cardstock and added some “tea” inside with Copic markers. I used Narwhal Cardstock for the string.

I used more Flower Market 6×6 paper for the wallpaper and tablecloth and added a white doily using the Rooftop Border. Then I die cut the word “Par-Tea” with Finley’s ABCs out of Sugarplum and stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Tea-rrific Day Add-on in Narwhal Ink.

I also finished off the inside of the card, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

If you haven’t yet entered our Dies Only Challenge, there is still some time! We can’t wait to see what projects you’ll come up with!

Thanks so much for this charming inspiration, Christy!

Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see what our amazing Design Team created to inspire us!

Karin was inspired to create this gorgeous design using the sketch literally! She featured Puffy Star Stackables, that she inked and arranged beautifully! Adding the sweet little bird from Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On makes for charming detail!

Christy got really creative and replaced the stars from the sketch with fun rooftop vignettes in her light-hearted holiday card! She used a combination of Rooftop Border and Ho-Ho-Holidays!

Samantha replaced the stars with the adorable Mice on Ice! She placed them on chunks of ice from Critters in the Arctic and Beary Happy Holidays along with a sprinkling of Mini Snowflakes!

Joyce also used Puffy Star Stackables in creating her super cute sketch inspired design! I love how she used the negative space for tucking in the little Say What? Christmas Critters!

Caly‘s beautiful Christmas card design replaces the stars in the sketch with Mini Wreaths! I love the cheery colors she used with the red berries and bows! She included the lovely sentiment from Snow Day!

Jessica‘s gorgeous card is so amazing! She used bright jewel colors for the String of Lights that stand in for the sketch stars. She placed her sentiment, combining Scripty Merry and Merry Messages, according to the sketch.

Franci‘s pastel Christmas cards are so sweet and happy! She recreated the card sketch with Puffy Star Stackables and Winter Unicorn! The wonderful die cut greetings are from Winter Big Scripty Words!

Samantha created an adorable design with an all-over pattern of cute Ho-Ho-Holidays reindeer! One even has a shiny red nose! She used Distress Oxide inks for the beautiful background! For the sentiment she white embossed a greeting from Toboggan Together on Black Licorice cardstock before fussy cutting it and layering it on the strip of vellum. (If you don’t have Samantha’s impressive fussy cutting skills, you could use the Merry Christmas Border instead!)

Jenn interpreted the card sketch with this frosty Jolly Christmas Tree design! She scattered Stitched Snowflakes over the background, then added the pretty joyful wishes greeting that is found in Winter Scripty Sentiments!

I hope you have been inspired by these amazing projects! We will share more Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 113 – Holiday Critters tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!

Jenn’s Beautiful Ombré Scalloped Card!

Jenn has some gorgeous Fun with Dies inspiration for you! Her card uses only dies and is absolutely stunning!

Jenn die cut a bunch of Rooftop Border scallops to layer on her card! It looks like a very colorful mermaid tail! She alternated blending Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink in the same color to get that amazing ombré look!

Jenn finished her card with a Stitched Heart Stackable cut from Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock and Scripty Smile with multiple layers of Storm Cloud cardstock on top!

Thank you Jenn for sharing this gorgeous card design with us today!
