To celebrate this, they have recruited some North American-based designers to help spread the news with a blog hop. Be sure to hop along to see some adorable creations with a few of the new Time For Tea products that are now available over at Simon Says Stamp! We hope that you will be inspired along the way.

Time for Tea Designs is giving away $30 worth of T4TD products that are now available at Simon Says Stamp! My blog post is the last on the stop so be sure to leave a comment on EACH blog to enter this giveaway. A random drawing will determine our winner and will be announced on the T4TD Blog on October 30, 2021.

For my card, I decided to make a shaker card, because nothing says celebration quite like a fun shaker! To start, I stamped the bear, mouse, balloon and string and the sentiment from the Birthday Bears stamp set. I coloured them with my Copics, if you are interested in the specific colours they will be available at the end of the blog. Next, I die cut everything, including the sentiment. I love the thick white border around the ‘make a wish!’ text.

I used Distress Oxides to stamp out the solid balloons to create a colourful background. For the oxides, I used Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina, Squeezed Lemonade and Kitsch Flamingo. I inked the edges of the balloons only to create a bit of dimension in them, I then used Copics to fill in the white areas. I used the second largest of the A2 Layering dies to cut out the panel and then adhered this to a 4 1/4 by 5 1/5 card base.

I die cut out the small frame from the Smile Inverted Scallop Frame Dies and glued some acetate to the back of it. I then added some doubled up foam tape. I took some pink, blue and clear sequins from my stash and added it to the center of the balloon panel and then stuck down the scalloped frame on top.

To finish the card, I used both liquid glue and foam tape to adhere the elements to the card front.

I hope you liked my shaker card and visit and comment on all of the blogs in the hop for your chance to win. Good luck!
