Hi there! Hope you all are fine! This time I wanted to make an Autumn card for you. I have coloured the lovely image from Stempelglede in warm colours with Distress ink, to match the lovely Maja papers.

I have put the sign up on a barbecue stick. It is stamped on a monochromes paper from Maja Design (Shades of Winterdays – Creme).

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I have put som sisal grass behind them. I have also painted with White gesso on the flowers an papers.

Here are the papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

Pop-Up Birthday Wishes

Jennifer Snyder here to present a pop-up twist card featuring two of my favorite product combinations – beautiful fun papers from Maja Design in Sweden and wonderful Creative Embellishments chipboard.

Since this card is a pop-up twist card, it’s a bit of a surprise when it’s opened.  Add on the chipboard and it’s a real birthday treat complete with birthday cupcake.

I have used  Maja Design’s “Life in the Country” collection on my card. The collection is bright and happy and feels like a sunny day.  That is exactly the feeling one should have when opening a birthday card.  Well that’s the feeling I like to have.
These are the papers I chose:
In My Flower Bed (both A&B side of paper)
Summer Kitchen (both A&B side of paper)
Strawberries with Ice

As I mentioned, this pop-up twist card offers some surprises.

 

 

I used a variety of chipboard and veneer pieces from Creative Embellishments.  I like to keep them simple by painting or inking so that they do not over take the beauty of the papers – they are only accents.
The pop-up twist die is from Karen Burniston’s die collection.
Thanks for stopping here today.

Hello Maja Fans,

today I’ve a got a page to share that I made as a part of big Baby Album I am working on for my friend.

I love creating Baby projects and each time I challenge myself with using non-baby papers, in this case I mixed the papers from mostly Vintage Spring Basics  collection

I kept on building the layers as one of my favorite technique and added the resin angel as a focal point.

I also created the heart embellishment using the distressed paper layers and sew them in the middle

I made some extra flaps to fill in with the photos later and used the silhouette from die cutting.

Watercoloring is what I am keen on at the moment, so I added some of them to the background and to the circle of the clock.

Stay tuned for more pages from my big Baby Album for my freind.

Products used:

Prima Marketing flowers and resin, Watercolors;

Chipboard and lace

Welcome friends!

Kerstin is back and I want to share with you my latest mixed media layout.

Fall is knocking on your door, finally, you feel like saying, after months of heat and drought.

At the begin of September, the summer heat gradually gives way to cooler autumn time,

which cobers the landscape in spectacular wonderful colours.

Time to walk in the woods and rustle through the foliage.

 

 I used a background paper ‘Autumn in the air’ from the collection  ‘Walking in the forest’. I love this wonderful golden autumn colours with delicate leaves motifs, Simply adorable!!

 In addition I used some Sizzix dies, flowers and embellishments from 49 and Market, wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts and a lace and frame which was made with silicone moulds.

 

  Autum in the air

some close up’s

 Have a wonderful time!

Kerstin xo

I wish a very happy hello to all of our friends at the Maja Design Blog! I hope you’re having a lovely Monday. It’s Nancy with you today. I’ve been away since May due to a shoulder injury, and can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be mostly recovered and back in my craft room again. I have a new card to share with you featuring Maja Design’s Fika collection, and my favorite color; purple.

Each layer of paper is distressed and stitched. A bouquet of handmade flowers provides a cheery focal point, with die cut rose leaves and  loopy twine bows entwined throughout.

I have a few new stamp sets I’m using with this card. I’ve been waiting a long time to be back with all my crafty goodies, and couldn’t resist bringing them out to play!

If you look closely you’ll find resin butterflies fluttering amongst the blooms.

Finally, a touch of gesso for a shabby chic finish.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Tools, Stamens, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Seth Apter Stamp Sets, Archival Ink in Timber Brown, Prima Resin Butterflies, Gesso, Twine, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you all so much for joining us on the blog today. May your week be filled with the joyful presence of those you love, and many happy moments in creative pursuits!

Hugs,
