Hello, our blog fans. Today I created the card in the box. It was an individual order and the most important thing was to use the Peacock motif.  I matched digital graphic and then found the paper. I mixed different collection – the most important was to find the best shades of blue paper.

To create the background I used a paper sheet from Monochromes Collection.  Modeling paste was applied by the mask and then I just compose the rest.

    I’m really happy about the final result. Hope you will like it to. Hugs, Paulina

 

 

 

 

It’s time for Confirmation!

Hi everyone! I am sure you are as excited as me about the new Maja papers. They are just amazing, and I have started using them already.

First up I want to show you a lollipop card I made with two of the sheets from the collection. “You are a star” and “Amazing”.

Some details. Here you get a closer look of the sheet “You are a star”.

For the leaves I have used the Monochrome papers for this collection.

The image is from the sheet “Girls in Jeans”. And underneath the image you can spot “Amazing”.

Here is the back of the lollipop. Where you can write a greeting, and put some money in the small envelope.

Under I just wanted to show you a Magnolia card I made with the gorgeous papers.

 

 

 

And under I have made a lollipop for a Confirmand boy.

The papers are from the Summer Crush collection. And the image is from the Denim & Friends collection.

 

 

And you can see that the back is pretty the same as the other lollipop card.

And at last I want to show you the book card I made.

I have used wonderful the Denim & Friends collection.

I cut the tie out for hand, and have done some sewing.

To make it look like a book, I use water colour paper from Canson. And I fold it like an accordion.

 

 

Just some details. Here I have matched craft card stock and Maja papers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

Welcome Baby Cards

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

Spring always makes me think about new life after winter (though we all know winter IS coming! 😉 ), and since a couple of my friends are expecting right now, I thought it would be nice to have some welcome baby cards in stock, just to be ready when the time comes! And so in my today’s post I’m sharing a set of two cards I made using a mixture of papers:

I used the same stamp for both cards, only coloured them – as usually, with Distress inks – according to traditional girl’s pinks and boy’s blues. I tried to match the shades of Vintage Baby papers that I used for the top layers of my cards. I also added some Monochromes for the bottom layer. The design is pretty simple: just some curved-edge layered papers:

…a trim of pom-poms, the coloured stamped image in the centre:

…with two little buttons in the upper corner:

…and a touch of glam with ombre glitter and a gold-embossed sentiment:

They are dimensional enough to suit my taste, but slim enough to go into an envelope 🙂

I really like the way they turned out – and look how the baby stamp imagery matches the style of those cute animals in the background 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whimsy Stamps, Lemonade; dies: Crea-lies, Spellbinders; pom-poms, buttons: my stash.

 

Thank you very much for visiting us today, don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for more inspiration! See you soon!

Hello sweet Maja friends.   Jennifer Snyder here sharing my lion birthday card made with the fabulous Denim & Friends collection.  This collection is fun, versatile and perfect for masculine themed projects.
These are the papers used from the Maja Design – Denim & Friends collection:
Stars & Stripes
Paisley
Monochrome – Denim Light

The adorable lion is from Spellbinders.  The card die is also from Spellbinders. The photo above is the front of the card and the image below is the inside.

The sentiments says: ” Wishing you a day full of joy and a year full of smiles”.  Beautiful, right?
The sentiment stamp is from Spellbinders/ Fun Stampers Journey.

I love how the blues from the Denim & Friends collection go so beautifully with the gold corrugated papers.

Thanks for stopping here.  I wish you a day full of joy as well.

 

Congrats

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 .
