Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

If you have seen my last post tehn you’ve seen the reason for today’s post too 🙂 Previously I shared two birthday card for a boy and a girl, in which I used – among others, of course – the Paisley bs and Loose fit bs papers. I was then left with pieces too small to be used for card panels, but still too large to be thrown away – I think you know what I mean 🙂 And so I punched a couple of squares and used them to make a patchwork background for a rustic flowery card:

I basically followed the colour palette of the Denim&Girls collection – pink, blue and navy blue – to which I added a touch of gold and a bit of glam with pearl cardstock, gold embossing powder and iridescent sequins:

I placed the stamped and embossed sentiment in the centre and matted it with die-cut doily and flower clusters.

It beautifully glimmers against the light:

And I really love how it turned out – rustic and simple yet glamorous and elegant. What do you think?

For the card I used the following products:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Cheery Lynn Designs, Sizzix, CreaLies; stamp: Latarnia Morska; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; punch: dpCraft, sequins: my stash.

 

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

 

Shaker Card Made from Denim and Filled with Love

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a shaker card full of love, using the beautiful
Maja Design – Denim & Girls paper collection as well as some of my other favorite products.Here are the papers used from Denim & Girls:
Pink Linen
You’re a Star

 

Maja Design has the perfect coordinating solid collection to take the stress out of color matching.  It’s the fabulous Monochrome Collection – Shades of Denim.  They have added 6 new shades to coordinate perfectly with the Denim & Girls papers.

 

In addition to the soft feminine papers and patterns in the collection, I used chipboard from Creative Embellishments as my minimal embellishments.  Yes this card looks clean and simple, however I felt adding flowers and bows would have taken away from the elegance and grace of the card.

This card has one additional added surprise because it is a shaker card.  I love creating shakers  as I  imagine the look on someone’s face as they open a shaker card.

This card is filled with shaker mix from 28 Lilac Lane and the mix is called “Marshmallow”.

After painting the chipboard with cream acrylic paints and creating the shaker section, I added a  doily chipboard piece, giving the shaker a nice delicate decorative edge.

I also added small string pearls to the outside of the shaker to cover the chipboard seams and give a finished polished look.

 

 Thanks for stopping here today.  Happy crafting.
