Hi everyone! How are you? Here in Norway the Spring has come. It is so lovely to hear the birds singing and the bumblebee sum. So I was inspired to make a Spring card for todays post. Hope you like it.

And what fit better than to use the lovely Vintage Spring Basics Collection! They are perfect for any Spring card.

I have coloured some cute Magnolia stamps in the same colours as the papers. I use Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring.

The sentiment is also from Magnolia and the Sumbeam Collection.

The hedgehogs are sitting on tree logs. And you can make them moving 🙂

By pulling the tag on the right side here.

Here a better view on the layers and the logs.

A close up.

And here they are pushed in to the middel of the card again. I was inspired by the super talented Jiwon Jung to make this.

The fence is made with a Magnolia die and Maja papers, so that it stands out a bit. That way it is easier to move the hedgehogs. I have added some Stickles – Star Dust to the image, butterflies and small flowers.

Another closeup.

The metal birds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is a video of the card:

And the list of papers used:

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

Hello Maja design fans,

Happy Monday,for today’s post i made a layered monochromatic card.I so loved this soft turquoise shades,i have used papers from “Vintage spring basics” and “Vintage  summer basics”.I have used two sheets front and back and layered theme alternately.All the die cuts are also cut from pattern papers.

The flowers are handmade using foamiran sheets,i generally dont make flowers but this is super easy and look so gorgeous(isn’t it?).I have used some chipboard designs and laces amongst the layers.All the layers and die cuts are given a coat of white gesso using dry brush to give a weathered look.

I have also splattered some white paint and added few butterflies to finish off.More close ups for you..

Maja papers used: 1934 , 1934 bs , 6th of march , 6th of march bs

Happy crafting

Goodmorning Lovely Maja Design Fans,

Today I am filling in for the lovely Nancy since she always makes such lovely cards, I’d like to show you a card I made with the newest collection combined with “Vintage Spring Basics” & “Vintage Autumn Basics”….although she is a queen in making cards I tried to make this card a pretty as she always does. The flowers I used are by 49 and Market and the stamp is designed by our very own Pascale….I just love the clock sheet from the Vintage Autumn Basics so much I almost always use them on my work what is you favorite Maja Design sheet?

I just cut some of the leaves from You’re Invited sheet to add to my flower cluster I just love how that turned out. Since I am a sucker for the color purple I do love that combination with the new collection. The chipboard I used are by The Dusty Attic and to match them to my card I added some wax on them.

Hello Maja Friends,

February is almost over, and I can’t wait when the Spring comes. I say it each year, but I can hardly bear the winter for so long. So from now I am ready for Spring Floral creations

I really love the Vintage Spring Basics collection, it’s so easy to create with it.

I used mostly one sheet for one card, and used both sides of it.

However the butterflies are so fun

But actually I’ve added the bright colors for the flowers

To my second card I also added the ribbon and lace

Products used:

Vintage Spring Basics 6×6 Paper pad

Goodmorning sweeties,

My husband’s aunt has three beautiful daughters and the oldest one just has a daughter herself {so there will a layout with the little Fenna really soon}, they always take pictures together and I love using them on my work. The one you see on the left is the oldest and her name is Annelijn, the one in the middle is Lidewij and the youngest is Marielot you see her on the right….For this layout I used the pretty NEW “Celebration” collection with a touch of yellow from the “Vintage Spring Basics”collection. The chipboards I used are by The Dusty Attic and the flowers are the new ones mixed with the older 49 and Market collections.

First I cut the Anniversary sheet in half then I put the outer edges together and cut about two cm’s from the outer edges what first were the inner edges {can you still follow lol} Then I turned the sheet 90 degrees after that I added a pretty grammar stamp by our lovely Pascale and a script stamp by Gabrielle. Later on I sprayed with some lindy’s and added a hearts stencil to my background sheet. All de edges of the paper I inked and distressed. Some of the chipboard pieces were already black and the other ones I gessod black and at the end I used a paintbrush with some white gold wax.

Maja Design papers used: Celebration: Anniversary & Glamour, Vintage Spring Basics: 1st of March. Mono Celebration-Pearl & Mono Celebration-Old Brass.

  

Thank you so much for your visit I hope I have inspired you to play with your Maja Design papers you have in you stash or even order new products I have used here. Did you already enter in our moodboard? We would love to see your work 😉

Have a lovely day!4
