Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring one of my favorite collection Enjoying Outdoors.
Making cards is a good way to get rid of all the leftovers of papers you have accumulated over the past months or should I say years. I don’t know how you keep them, but I found that keeping them in a pocket with the collection is the best way to use them. When I was first starting scrapbooking I put all the leftovers together, but when I wanted one, well, I never found the right one! Now I know that if I don’t find it, it’s because I don’t have it and I will have to cut some beautiful paper! Let see how I made these cards!
Even if both cards look different, the way I made them is the same. First, I chose in my leftover from the Enjoying Outdoors collection, which one I could use. When I didn’t find the right one, My next move is to look in the 6×6 paper pad.
When I found all the scraps of paper I needed, I inked the edges to add some contrast before gluing them directly to the card base.
I die cut some leaves in two green papers from the collection and I inked the edges.
Then I added a few flowers.
On this card, I even added some lavender sprigs from my garden. To prevent them from falling apart when they dried, I covered them with gel medium.
And to finish the layout of the cards I added some microbeads.

Hi dear crafting friends! Here I am back with a card using lovely papers from the Denim & Friends collection, together with a beautiful stamp from Stempelglede and flowers from the lovely Petaloo by Flora Craft.
I just love this collection, as blue is my favourite colour to work with!
Aren’t these flowers from Petaloo just stunning!?
The image is a stamp from Stempelglede, and I have used Distress ink, re-inkers for my colouring.
Look at these beautiful Petaloo flowers!! I have added som white Gesso on to them as well.
Takk “Thank you” is a stamp from Stempelglede. I have used Spellbinder dies and a barbecue stick to fasten it on.
We have been specially sponsored by Petaloo by FloraCraft. You can also find them on Facebook HERE.
I wish a happy to hello to all of our friends at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, and what a blessing it is to have this time with you all. We have a special sponsor this week, Petaloo by FloraCraft, and they’ve graciously showered us with beautiful blooms. I’m sharing some of them with you today, along with one of my all time favorite Maja Design collections, Vintage Summer Basics.
I realize it’s autumn in many parts of the world, but the lovely papers and flowers bring to mind flower vendors at the farmer’s market, which is where I draw inspiration for today’s card.
My base is design papers that are distressed, layered, and stitched. The central bloom is accentuated with tea stained doilies and lace, with a tumbling of florals reaching down the side.
The center of the card is layered with additional design paper. The lace edge is courtesy of a border punch. An ivory twine bow brings everything together with a feminine flourish.
The ‘Flowers 4 Sale’ stamp is from my stash, and I’m thrilled to find a ideal project for it.
Below is a side view with a view of the interior of the card.

Hello my dear friends!!!
It’s Mary here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you made with the awesome ”Denim & Friends” collection.
When I found on Pinterest this beautiful photo of a girl with a mysterious feeling I knew that I had to scrap it with these gorgeous papers. So, I choose the ”Leather” paper and combined it with some beautiful flowers from Petaloo by Floracraft. I have also used some torn pieces from the ”Wood” paper to make some layers behide my photo. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure…
Here are some close ups…
I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and also applied some white on the center of the paper to highlight the spot where I placed my cluster.
Then, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I continued by coloring my page with Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Cattail Copper Brown” and ”Dark Chocolate Truffle”.
I heat embossed the ”Flourish 2” chipboard with the ”Midnight Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. The ”Foliage Set 1” and the title from the ”Mini Travel Word Set 2” were also embossed with the ”Spanish Moss Green” powder. As usual all the chipboards I used are 2crafty.
To finish my page, I added some Bronze micro beads & Plum glass beads with gel medium and made some splatters with White Artist Acrylic Ink.
Petaloo Flowers used:
Mixed Blossoms x 8 – Antique Beige
Forget Me Nots x 16 – Antique Beige
Mini Daisy Petites x 40 – Antique Beige
That’s all for today, my friends!
Thank you for stopping by!
Jennifer Snyder here today. I’m sharing my cards made with one of my favorite Maja design collections, Fika and embellished with flowers from Petaloo by Floracraft.
It’s always time for a coffee or tea break as far as I am concerned. In fact I was actually sipping hot coffee while making these cards.
I embellished the cards with flowers by Petaloo by Floracraft.
They are gorgeous little Forget-me-nots from the Penny Lane collection. The Petaloo flowers also match the papers perfectly.
The stamps are from JustRite Papercrafts. Very fun coffee themed stamps!
Thank you for joining me today for a spot of coffee.
