A very good morning to you, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog :)

The summer is coming to an end, but we shouldn’t let our spirits go down! Today I have two birthday cards to share, and their common element is the blue palette and a motif connected with flying high above :)

The first one features an angel wing in the flower cluster:

I layered papers from the Vintage Frost collection, placed the sentiment stamp with a button in the centre and surrounded it with flowers and leaves. I also added some pearl brads and liquid pearls.

The central motif of the second card is an air balloon surrounded by flowers:

I used scraps of the Vintage Romance papers to make a shabby patchwork background, placed the chipboard layered balloon upon it and decorated it with mini roses and crystal flourishes.

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog :)

Today I have a sweet baby layout to share with you:

mdangel

I combined the Vintage Frost and Vintage baby collections to create a delicate girly layout with my sweet niece. I created a layered background placing a square in the centre of the striped paper and adding a punched decorative square on top. Then I added a die-cut doily as a decorative corner between the photos:

I matted the photos with papers and tags from the Ephemera sheet, and then adde a couple of balloons I cut out from the New Arrival paper:

The flower cluster includes paper straws with metallic foil patterns and gold metallic drops:

mdangel3

I made the title with foam sticker letters, embellishing the letter “a” with a molded angel wing and added a signature strip from one of the papers as a decorative border:

mdangel4

As a cherry on top, I stamped “You are perfect” in the lower corner.

I really love how the papers and patterns compliment the cute photos of the baby girl :) What do you think?

And here’s the list of supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: letters: American Crafts; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts, my stash; die: Prima; punch: Martha Stewart, mold: Prosvet; stam: ScrapBerry’s; paper straws, gold drops: mys stash.

Mother’s Day Cards

Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today :)

I know many of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland this holiday comes on May 26th. And so for my today’s post I have two simple shabby chic cards for moms :)

mdmom

Both are made using the Sofiero collection – soft, delicate colours and beautiful designs are simply perfect for the occasion. And so in the first card I layered sand-coloured papers in the background and placed two cut-out images on top. Then I added the sentiment in a decorative die frame and some mini roses:

mdmom1

I slightly distressed the edges of papers to give them a more shabby look. Small pearls are a cherry on top ūüėČ

mdmom2

mdmom3

For the background of the other card I embossed the Monochromes white/sand paper to add some texture:

mdmom4

Then I placed a flowery tag on top onto which I stamped my sentiment. I put a decorative chipboard frame on top so that the sentiment pops out :)

mdmom5

I finished my card off with a small flower cluster:

mdmom6

Though simple, the cards still were a kind of a challenge for me: I had to make them flat enough to go into envelopes to be mailed :) With my love for dimension that was sooo hard! :)

And here’s what I used:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; stamps: Lemonade; dies: Sizzix; brads: Craftmania; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon, string: my stash.

 

Have a nice day and see you soon!

Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to present my first inspiration. ¬†I love vintage and shabby chic style. I’m a big fan of layers, laces and chipboards. ¬†Cards are one from my favourite type of projects to create. Here is my today’s inspiration :
Card by Padoriaa

Papers from the collection called “Vintage Romance” fits perfectly to my project. ¬†I pick few papers and started to prepare the composition. Next was to added some flowers, metal embellishments and chipboard. Cut out elements from the paper and use them like the central point of my card.

Card by Padoriaa

Flowers together with ribbon and laces. Many tiny elements together.

Card by Padoriaa

Vintage stamp with perfect sentence.  Here I used different shades of ink to stamp. It look really nice instead of using a black ink.

My cards are full of ¬†layers and elements but I always try to make them light. It’s not easy, it takes time ¬†but I love the final result.

In the end I applied white gesso and splash it with white and gold paint.

Papers used :

825 - When I saw you ds 817 - Love is in the air ds 824 - To be with you ds 839 - Love notes dsVintage-Romance-PVintage-Frost-Basics 

Hope you will like my first inspiration. Hugs :*
