Hello crafty friends!
I am super excited to be able to share cards with you again finally! The next three posts coming up I made a while back but I hadn’t gotten around to finishing the videos until now. I needed a 40th birthday card and as you may know, I am a massive fan of punny sentiments! So the Tea-rrific Day critters were perfect for this card! Do you like punny sentiments as well? If yes, what’s your favorite?? I would love to know!! I am definitely planning on using the Year Eleven stamp set really soon with the “sorry I missed your birthday – I didn’t planet that way”. That just cracks me up!
I started by stamping all the images from Tea-rrific Day, Tea-rrific Day Add-On, and the cat from Purrfectly Wicked onto marker paper and cut them out using my Brother Scan’n’Cut DX. Then, I colored them using Copic markers. I added the little kitty to the mix because the recipient loves cats, so I just had to add one! The little skirt for the cat is from Happy Howloween and the flower crown from Eggstra Amazing Easter.
Once I finished coloring, I added white gel pen details for added interest and die-cut all the pieces from the Tree House die, as well as the Bunting Borders and the Slimline Scallops with Hearts. I also die-cut letters from Henry’s ABC from white cardstock and fun foam to create my dimensional punny sentiment. For my background, I masked off the edges of the scalloped panel using the stitching lines as a guide. Then, I added color with Lawn Fawn inks in Kiddie Pool and Celery Stick. I also added ink blending to the tree in the colors Celery Stick, Jalapeño, Pizza Crust, Doe, and Walnut. To make sure my garland fits in well with the scene, I colored in the little buntings with the same color markers that I used for my images. I did the same with the letters for my custom sentiment.
Now it was already time to build my scene. I added the scalloped panel to a slimline card base and then first added the little tree stump on the right to gauge the spacing for my images and the tree house. Then, I added the treehouse and the stump as well as the background images using liquid glue. For my sentiment, I adhered the cardstock die-cuts and the fun foam on top of each other to create dimension and then used a T-ruler to glue them down as straight as possible. I also heat embossed the “it’s time” in white onto black cardstock to complete the sentiment.
Finally, I added the last images in the foreground using foam squares. I had so much fun making this card and the tea critters were perfect for a fun birthday card!
I hope you liked this one! You can watch the full tutorial down below:
