Welcome dear Maja friends!

I was inspired to create a Pop – Up season card in vintage style.
I love it to use the amazing cutting dies from Sizzix
with the very good qualitiy papers from Maja Design.
Always a perfect combination with Distress inks as well.

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. I am back with some more Christmas inspiration for you today, another coffee filter card using the lovely Home for the Holidays collection.
Again I have tried to captured the brown and blue colours from the papers in my colouring. I use Distress ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring. I stamp on Bockingford watercolour paper and uses syntetic brushes size 0 and 00.
The stamps and dies are from Magnolia.
Under you see the simple card that I have put inside the coffee filter to write a Christmas greeting on. I have sewed with my sewing machine on all the paper edges.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!
Hi everyone! Are you ready for a Christmas post today? I have made some Christmas cards, and I will show you them in my next coming posts. I know it’s a bit early, but Christmas is coming before you know it 🙂 I have used some gorgeous papers from the collection called Home for the Holidays.
The card is actually made with a coffee filter. And I have decorated the sides with christmassy Maja papers.
The image is coloured with Distress Inks, to match the colours of the papers.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the image and text, plus dies are from Magnolia. I have added some corrugated paper and cheese cloth behind the image. Behind the flowers I have added sisal gras.
Under you get a sneak peek of the cards to come 😉 I have made a serie with Home for the Holidays papers and coffee filters. Hope it inspires you!
Here are the papers used:

Hello Lenet here today and I bring you a…Christmascard.
I know a lot of you don’t want to think about any thing Christmassy right now but I’m in a Christmas mood all year long.
I’m a member of two facebook groups that have a Chrismascard challenge , and for that I need to make two Christmas cards a month, I can share them but If I have the time I want to make 4 different ones . Two for each group. You can never have enough Christmascards
The Christmas collections of Maja are just to gorgeous for not using them , so I use them a lot. that means you will see more Christmas cards from me thru out the year.
This one is made with several leftovers from different Christmas collections. I just love to make bleu ones it gives that winter and snow feeling I love and always hope we have at that time.
Besides the papers I used spellbinder dies , summerfeelings doily die from studio light and the Tim Holtz mini snow flakes rosette die. I just love rosettes.
I hope you like the card I made for your inspiration hope to see you back next time and don’t forget to come back to see the amazing things the other Maja girls make for you
Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer Basic collection. I chose a photo of the Daum Venus aux Tiroirs by Salvador Dali.
I stamped here and there with a grey ink before priming the background with clear gesso. I added also a very thin layer of white gesso to tone down the blue.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and Paper texture paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkle two embossing powders: one pearl, the other silver that I heat set.
Then, I added some colors: black ink, white ink, and steel mica to add some contrast.
While the inks were drying, I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored with a blue ink and embossed the big ones. I covered the other ones with a silver foil. I colored some flowers in blue.
I cut some papers in the Home for Holidays collection to add under the photo. Before gluing all the embellishments, I stamped some text here and there with a black ink.
To finish the layout, I added silver microbeads and glitters.
