Craftie Cafe – Avery Elle Tea Time : 3 Cards 3 ways



Design-team-badge-V1 (1)


Hi All, welcome to today’s blog post where I show case the Avery Elle Tea Time stampset and dies for the Craftie Cafe Online Store.  I made these cards with the same layout but different textures and layers using the Chevron cover die, watercolour inks and texture paste. All subtle differences that slightly alter the look of each cards.

For each card I have used the Avery Elle Watercolour inks which I have used as a watercolor wash for each background.

I have also heat embossed the cups of tea and saucers with Lawn Fawn white heat embossing powder which I then coloured them in Clean & Clear Zig watercolour markers.

Here is the first card where I use the Chevron Die as a stencil then add Ranger Texture Paste in Opaque Matte.


For the next card I have ink blended with Distress Oxide inks over the Chevron die as a stencil.


The last card I have simply added the Chevron die over the top over the colour wash background.


Each card is a top folding white card base. The layers added have either been foam mounted on coloured cardstock or adhered down with liquid adhesive.


I have made a You Tube making this card trio.

This blog post is for the Craftie Cafe online store.

Craftie Cafe: Wine Tags


Jo Herbert - 311017 Christmas Tags Pic 1

Welcome to today’s blog post brought to you for Craftie Cafe Online store. 

Today, I have created some fun tags to place on bottles of wine as hand made gift idea. These tags can be mass produced and were so much fun to make.

Coming to the end of year it is timely that I have some of these ready to give to teachers, work colleagues and friends.

I have used an array of products from Craftie Cafe  wtth MFT, Avery Elle, Wplus9 and more.
