Welcome to the world little one card

Hi,
 
So I have been trying to make some baby cards recently with no success....and then I saw a sketch a BOOM - made a card within minutes! I'm impressed it took me so little time to make it. From now on I will be looking for more sketch inspirations for my cards....
 
here it is - my sweet little Bumblebee card.



This card is A5 size, because A6 seemed too small for me for this project, and I didn't want to squeeze everything in, that would make it look too messy.
 
I combined two bright colours - Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo.
 
The yellow backing paper was made using a stamp from 'You are a fabulous work of art stamp set. I just stamped the little circle all over the page to make it look a bit like a honeycomb... I doesn't look quite like I wanted it too, but it I like it!

 
 
To make the flower I used my Fun Flower punch on white card, and then sponged Melon Mambo all over the flower. The picture doesn't really show the shades...
The Bumblebee is a retired stamp which I looove! I stamped it onto a white card and coloured with markers. I also added a little bit of sparkle on my Bumblebee wings - glitter glue, but the card still looks clean and quite simple I think...



Finally a sentiment: I chose one from Sweet Li'l One stamp set.

I quite like how it all came up together..... It's a perfect card for a perfect sweet little baby....
I hope you like it too

As I mentioned earlier I was inspired by a sketch from www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.co.uk
I also entered my card into the challenge. :)

Clean & simple Petite petals cards

Good Morning!
 
At last some rain and fresh air!!  I was getting a bit fed up with all this hot air... Now, as my brain seems to be freshened up I sat down one day as per usual brake from completing my orders and design few cards....just because I can. And because I love flowers this is what I came up with:




These cards are very simple and quick to make. Great for any occasion. Actually as I look at them now they would be lovely as a wedding invitation me thinks! Will have to sleep on that idea...

I have entered this card to a Clean & simple challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  http://addictedtostamps-challenge.blogspot.co.uk/
 
Anyway, you can make this card too! Here is what you will need:

1. white cardstock measuring 21cm x 21cm (8 1/4" x 8 1/4") folded in half
2. piece of paper in your chosen colour measuring 21cm x 6cm
3. white scrap paper for flowers
4. ink pads, flower punch, gems
5. Scoring board and stylus

First, shape the piece of paper of your chosen colour on the long side using either scissors, like I did, or a border die or punch.
 

Then, using your scoring board and stylus - score the paper at every single line. I think that gives great embossing effect and makes the card not so boring anymore..  
You might choose different pattern as well.... Why not...



Now stick it to your cardstock. I used fast fuse adhesive. Then, stamp your greeting.
You are almost there...
 



Now, what I call 'fun part' - stamping and cutting the flowers! I usually stamp lots of different colours, cut them and then see what ones go well together. So for this project I used 3 colours and actually used all of them because I liked how they looked together...
 

 
I glued the flowers to my card using mini glue dots.
 


I decided that the card needed a little bit of a blink so I added rhinestones to my flowers. They would look lovely with mini pearl gems too.  And this is my finished card:






 
 

I hope you like my tutorial. You can see how quick and easy it is to make this card. Yes, it is very clean and simple but who said cards need to have lots on them to look cute?!
 
Thanks for visiting my blog today
 
Have a great week

Bordering Blooms Wedding congratulations card

Hello on this beautiful sunny day!
I have had lots of fun recently making wedding cards as I have a new Stampin' Up stamp set "for the new two". You can view all my cards on my FB pages - Mazzy's Craft Corner.
 
Today, on my blog, I would like to show you how to make one of them - a quick and simple congratulations card to the Bride and Groom. I made this card using just black and white colours.



 here we go...
 
I started with A4 whisper white cardstock. I cut it to a square shape measuring 21cm x 21cm or 8.5" x 8.5". I folded it in half using my scoring board and scoring tool.
Then using my lovely border stamp I stamped it all around the edges of the front of the card.



TIP: when you start, on the first edge make sure you leave some space in the corner (as in the picture above). It will make easier for you later to finish it off when you get to the last edge....see picture below.



Then I used the peace of paper I cut off the A4 card at the beginning. I cut it to measure 8.5cm x 19cm, or 7.5" x 3 3/8". I stamped my image right in the middle.



Now, the last bit I needed was the sentiment. I used the same ink, stamped the sentiment onto a white card and cut it out with an oval shape die using my Big Shot machine.



I also used an oval shape die a size bigger to cut out the shape to go under the sentiment - that gave me a little frame and a little bit of colour. See pictures below,




Time to put my card together. I used snail adhesive for my sentiment bit.





Then I used dimensionals for a bit of 3D effect.





I finished my card off with some pearl gems on the sentiment, a tiny bordering blossom inside the card and wishes.


And here it is - a beautiful wedding congratulations card. Quick and easy!



I hope you enjoyed my  today's tutorial. I really love this card, there is so many ways you can do it using different shape dies for the sentiment or different border stamps. I love the ones I used!
 
Well, Thank you for visiting my blog today and happy crafting xx

beautiful Petite Petals lidded box

Hello!
 
Very miserable day today so I would like to show you how to make it a bit brighter with this beautiful box with lid topped with petite flowers. I think its very feminine and delicate, perfect for a little gift...





let's get started!!

First you will need  2 pieces of cardstock:  5.5"x 5.5" for the base, and 4 9/16" x 4 9/16" for the lid
Using your scoring base and tool score the base card at 1.5" on all 4 sides.
Then score the lid paper at 1" on each side. See the picture below.



Fold it all over.
Now you need to do some cutting as in the pictures below:



Now  put the box together applying some strong adhesive to all the corners.
And here you have it - box with a lid.


Now the fun part - decorating the lid. I used flower stamp and punch. First I stamped my flower onto A4 paper. I used the whole sheet for my project. Then I used my punch to cut out all the flowers.
 


Next I glued some flowers to on top of the lid and sides to make  a base.

 
 
 
next I added some more flowers on top using both glue dots and dimensionals as I didn't want them to look flat. I also shaped the flowers a little bit.
 
 
 
You can see from my next picture there is no pattern of how and where I glue the flowers. just do whatever you think looks best for you.
 
TIP - don't use too many flowers on top of each other as they won't stick or won't stay there for too long.... Trust me. learn from my mistake.... :)
 
And here it is - cute little box with a lid full of sweet little flowers!
Easy, wasn't it?
 

 \

 
I am sorry the pictures are not the best, but I hope the tutorial was clear enough.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog today.
please feel free to share your opinion about my box.

Beautiful bunch fold flat box with mini cards






Hello on this hot sunny day.... I love sun but I couldn't stay out for too long so having done all my housework I sat down in my craft corner and made step by step tutorial of this cute little box with mini cards. I hope you like it....



You will need 9.5" x 7.5" cardstock (25.5cm x 21cm)
Using your scoring board, with the long side at the top score the card at: 3.5", 4.5", 8" & 9".
Then turn it round and score it at : 1", 2", 5.5" & 6.5".
Fold along the scored lines.
Then cut off the marked edges as in the picture below.





Once you've done that you will have this shape to play a bit more with:
 

 
Now, do a little bit more cutting as in the picture below, making 4 little flaps and removing the marked edges between them.
 


Now you will have something like this:
 


Turn the card over and use your embossing buddy to remove all the debris from the cardstock. It will prevent extra powder from sticking to your project.
 


Now the fun part. I used Beautiful Bunch stamp set and stamped a flower all over my cardstock. Then I used clear embossing powder all over my stamped images
 

 




 
Then I used my heat tool ( I am assuming here that everyone knows how to use it) :)
and this is the end result:
 
 


 
looks pretty already, doesn't it?
 
Lets put it all together. Apply some strong adhesive to the stripe in the end and attach it to the other end of the box. I used fast fuse adhesive.
 
 
and here is your box. .
 
 

 
 
Now you can round the corners and add any embellishments you want. I used a ribbon and some gems for the other box.
 

 
To make the mini cards you will need:
 some paper measuring 3 3/8" x 6 6/8" folded in half,
background paper measuring 3" x 3"
cut out flowers.
 
 
here is how I made it. I used the same ink pad colour as my cardstock. Stamped the same flower image to a white paper and cut it out with my punch.
 

 
I used snail adhesive to glue the background paper to my card, and some dimensionals to attach the flower to the top of the card.
 
And here you have it. Beautiful fold flat box with beautiful bunch!
 



I hope you like my tutorial. Thank you very much for visiting my page today. :)
Please feel free to leave me a comment below. I would love to know what you think of my boxes.
I am also happy to answer all your questions, if you have any and help you make a box like this.
