Hello out blog fans. Today I’m really late with the post. I totally forgot to show you my last card created for the mood board challenge. Have you seen it? In this inspiration, I would like to show you how universal are the Maja’s papers. I have used the Christmas Collection of paper to create completely no Christmas card. It’s a huge value of the papers!
I’m wondering if you are using the Christmas Collection due the yeat as well? If not – it’s good advice to try. Hope you will like my card. Hugs, Paulina
I was inspired to create a new springtime layout in a romantic vintage style.
I love the soft colours in spring, nature awakens from its winter sleep, the sun becomes more beautiful from day to day, the best time to spend more time outdoors again.
I also remember our childhood days when there were no computers to sit in front of for hours.
I thought of blossoming cherry trees when the petals fell like snow.
As background I used the backside of the 4th of May.
Then I tored the 10th of May into several stripes and stuck them on top of each other.
some close up’s
I found the idea of using these calendar pages as layers under the photo very suitable and exciting.
As in every collection there is also a page to cut out with different tags.
As a special highlight I added the cut out little girl in the lower right corner
and created a deep effect with foam pads.
Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. Here in Norway the Spring is close, the snow is gone and the birds have started to sing in the mornings. I think Spring is my favorite time of the year. The days get longer, and the flowers germinate. Its time for a new fresh start! Here in Norway the Spring is also time for Confirmations. And I have had that in mind with these cards. Can you guess which Maja Design Collection I have used for my cards??
Yes of course, the lovely Vintage Spring Basics.
Here you see little Tilda from Magnolia sitting on some steps. She is resting, and maybe looking for something to photograph. I have masked the two stamps together. The lovely text is from Stempelglede. For my colouring I have used Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I often stamp with Memento stamp pad, on the Langton Watercolour papers. My brushes are synthetic and I use size 0 and 000.
For the flowers I have used Foamiran. And some dies from Magnolia. I cut them out, blow on them with my heat gun, then curl them a bit, before I stretch the petals out again.
Inside the card I have made a paper strip to put some money behind. And a small card to write a greeting on.
Here is my second card. Made the same way as my first. And with the same flowers.
Here I have used the pink flower stamens. I have made a step by step of how I made the flowers:
Just another close up. The bow is made with Maja papers and a Magnolia die.
Here you can see that I have added Liquid pearls in Tilda’s hair, and around her.
Underneath the flowers I have put some Sisal grass. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Here the inside of the card. With beautiful butterfly paper from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design Blog today!
Hello Lenet here , today I bring you this masculine card made with papers from the Denim and friends collection, and some car pictures from the vintage romance honeymoon sheet.
This card can be used for a birth day but also as a congratulations card for someone who just got his drivers license.
In fact I made this one with the intention to play along with challenge that wanted a congratulations with your drivers license card, but you had to use the given sketch too.
I was so busy making this card I totally forgot about the sketch. Oh wel I just make another one .
Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
It always amazed me how kids can be happy about pretty much anything. But there is not greater joy than that when their dreams come true. And which little boy doesn’t dream about a bike? I was lucky enough to have captured that joy – my younger son’s first ride on a “big” bike 🙂
Just look at his beaming face 🙂
I didn’t actually plan to use these papers, but they happen to perfectly match the colour palette of the photo, so…yep, it’s March and I’m still using the Christmas collection 😉 I layered pieces of papers upon a neutral cream background of papers from other collections, which I decorated with a brickwall pattern using a Prima stencil – I wanted to repeat the pavement pattern. I know, it’s not perfect, but it’s close enough. I also added some die-cut tags:
To enhance the photo’s theme, I added a chipboard bike:
…and to enhance the photo’s golden mood, I added some golden accents:
Of course, I couldn’t do without some flowers 🙂
I’m so glad I managed to take this photo! Now I can cherish this sweet memory so nicely completed with these beautiful Christmas Season papers 🙂
