Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today to share my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”I Wish” collection. I really love these papers because although it is a Christmas collection can easily be used in non-Christmas pages. Take for exable mine…

This time I made a soft romantic page with this beautiful photo, which as always found on Pinterest.  And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish to play in the Snow” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”I wish you a Happy new Year”  and the ”I wish for frosty mornings” papers. I also placed some pieces from an old book and made a fussy cutting on some vintage clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics ”No XVI” paper.

Close up 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I heat embosed the paste with ”Golden Angel Wings” Lindy’s powder to make the texture more obvious. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cowabunga Copper” and ”Cape Cod Coral” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the floral chipboards and the title with ”Byzantine Bronze”. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

As a final touch, I added some bronze microbeads and some Prima Memory Hardware – Glass Pearls.

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

I love working with  Maja Design Paper, it is the softest paper I have ever worked with, so it distresses beautifully. Being a paper layer, I find the Collections easy to work with, plus you can combine Collections, as they also blend beautifully…. This corner shows distressed, hand stitched, paper layers using corrugated paper in the layers…

I primed the TH icicle, old wooden fence & chicken wire with clear gesso, the rest of the chipboard was primed with white gesso. I then painted all the chipboard,& the TH icicle, except for the chicken wire with clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried I painted the white pieces with LuminArt-Heavenly White H20, & for the brown I used Shimmerz -Chocolate & Diamonds…

Hello, my friends! I hope you had a blessed Christmas! I’m thrilled to be sharing a project on the Maja Design Blog today. This is the last of my 2016 series of dimensional cards using Maja Design’s festive ‘I Wish’ collection. Sunday was truly the very first day of Christmas, so the way I see it we’re still firmly in the midst of season.

Santa is the front and center of this card as he studies his list in preparation for his holiday deliveries.

Each layer is distressed, layered, stitched, and popped up using foam adhesive.

 

The image of Santa and the holiday ornaments are fussy cut from the paper collection.

Snow frosted holiday greenery, berries, and a twine bow add finishing touches.

 

The lace trim is created with a Martha Stewart border punch.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Supplies Used: Twine, Holiday Greenery and Berries, Foam Adhesive, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Martha Stewart Lace Border Punch, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for visiting! It’s a great honor to share my card with you. I want to thank you with all my heart for your kind comments. I am humbled and forever grateful to be a part of such a fabulous crafty family. I can’t wait to see what y’all are working on as we head into the New Year. I send wishes for many cozy days of crafting!

Hugs,Nancy-sign

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

May your Christmas be filled with lots of happiness, peace and love!

Mary here with you today and I have a layout to share with you. I used papers from the ”I Wish” collection which matched perfectly the beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. Is there anyone who doesn’t believe on Santa? I still believe… and this photo was just perfect for a Christmasy post. But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Happy Holiday” paper and I made the layers behide my photo with torn papers from the ”I wish we will deck the halls”, the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas”. I also placed some pieces from an old book and two photos from the ”I wish – Ephemera”.

Close up 2

I applied on the center of my paper white gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Before it gets dried I heat embossed it with ”Purely White” embossing powder. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Bayou Boogie Gold” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with 13arts white splash ink.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the frame and the floral chipboards with ”Desert Moon Copper Pine”, the words and the dotted baubble chippies with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

Close up 4

As a final touch, I made some splatters with white splash ink and when dried I added some bronze microbeads.

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Happy New year!!!
