Hello dear friends!
Mary here with you sharing my latest layout for my May inspiration. This time I made a colorful page with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments and I choose a dark paper to combine them. I don’t really remenber if I have already told how much I love that combination. The contrast is just amazing!
As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that beautiful photo. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
For my background I used the ”Ephemera” paper on the back side. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and I applied a small amount of white gesso behinde my combosition. When it was dried, I added some texture with paper texture paste and a stencil.
I made some stamping here and there and then I heat embossed the patterns with the ”Venus Violet Blue” and the ”Sunset Yellow Orange” Lindy’s Gang embossing powders. Continued by coloring my page with the ”Tea Pot Purple” and the ”Magnolia Magenta Gold” Lindy’s sprays.
I painted the ”Small Scroll #2” flourish chipboard with the Sparks ”Iris Potion” acrylic paint. The ”Clockworks Small” chipboard was also painted with the metallique ”Steampunk Copper” paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic.
When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.
That’s all for today, my friends!
Thank you for stopping by!
Hello, dear friends! I’m so happy you’re here with us on this wonderful Monday. It’s Nancy on the blog with you, here to share a new card. I hope everyone who is a mother had a lovely Mother’s Day, at least in the U.S., as I know it’s on a different day in other countries.
Today’s card is created for my daughter’s birthday. I want her to have a card with all of my love put into it. That’s really what crafting and art are about for me; putting my heart and soul into a creation that will hopefully brighten someone’s day. I’ve been drawn to pastels recently, which seems to happen this time of year, so for this card I’m using the beautiful Coffee in the Arbor collection.
The two large flowers are crafted from the paper collection, with the addition of smaller purchased flowers to bring out the pretty yellows in the paper.
The florals sit atop a base of venice lace and are intertwined with a loopy twine bow.
Each layer of paper is distressed and stitched. The sentiment stamp is perfect for my sweet girl’s birthday.
Below is a peek at the interior of the card.

Hi everyone! Here I am back with a confirmand card using the lovely Summer Crush papers. With doilies and a straw.
It is Confirmand-time here in Strandebarm now. And here comes one of the cards I have made. I just love the images in the Summer Crush collection. And this is just so beautiful and dreamy. And a perfect match to the papers.
I have cut out the “Konfirmant” text with a die from Papirdesign using the Maja dotted paper.
The flowers are from Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts. I have places sissal grass behind them. And some cheese cloth behind the image.
And here is the back of the lollipop, to write a greeting on.
Here is the list of papers used:
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
Jennifer Snyder here to share a card I made for my mother to celebrate Mother’s Day.
I used the gorgeous soft collection from Maja Design, called Sofiero
The beautiful rose florals in this collection remind me of the rose garden my mother had in our front yard when I was a child.
These are the papers I used from the Sofiero collection:
Strolling Down the Rose Path
The Elegant Winehouse
Romantic Picnic in the Park
I used a Spellbinders die, created by Becca Feeken for the embellishing. The die was backed by a piece of floral lace to add an extra touch of femininity.
Here is one last look at the card.
Thanks for sharing a little of your day with us.
