Christy’s Tea-rrific Day Inspiration!

We can’t wait to see your Challenge 129 – Fun with Food creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday, July 31 at 11:59PM ET. Let’s see who has the recipe for crafty fun!

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Fun with Food Challenge! For this one I decided to make a fun birthday tea party card featuring Tea-riffic Day, Tea-riffic Day Add-on, and the banner from Scent with Love. I stamped all the images in Jet Black ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

Then I die cut the Tree House out of Kraft cardstock and the tree top and Slimline Grassy Hillside Borders out of Cilantro cardstock and added some definition with Distress Oxide Inks. I used Vintage Photo on the Kraft and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn on the Cilantro. I also created a sky using a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock with Salvaged Patina and the Cloudy Stencil.

I cut the door of the Tree House out of Peacock Cardstock and the trim from Ground Coffee and glued those into place, then glued the grass and tree to the sky and trimmed the whole panel down with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables.

I stamped a sentiment from Reveal Wheel Friends & Family Sentiments and glued the focal panel to a Peacock card base. Then I added my images and finished up with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

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!
