Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here and I bring you this card.

 

Today is the official first day of the summer , and so I decided to use the summertime collection to create this card with.

I love making cards with an extra twist ,so made this what shall I call it dangle card?

When you open the card you find a dangle of roses , I cut out of a sheet of Smell the roses.

 

 

I used the two bikes because well ,we dutch are not only known for the mills , tulips and wooden shoes ,  but we are also known for our many bikes.

I love to ride my bike and use it daily for fun but also for running errands .

And saying that I’m going to hop on my bike to bring this card to the post office than  it can be sent to my friend  so she”ll how much you appreciate her.

thank you very much for visiting our blog and hope you get some inspiration by this card.

 

 

 

 

Father’s Day Cards

Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Father’s Day has been celebrated in various parts of the world, and in Poland it comes on June 23rd. Therefore for my today’s post I created two cards for the occasion. These are really super quick and easy to make even for beginners 🙂

I don’t mind at all using flowers in masculine projects, but this time I decided not to include a single one. I based both on the Denim & Friends collection.

For the first card you don’t even need any die-cutting machine, I cut all the paper elements by hand.

I layered papers, added some tags and a strip of paper across the card and placed a cut-out image on top. I decorated the card with metal embellishments, studs and a chipboard sentiment, but you could easily replace those with paper elements and handwriting.

If you have a die-cutting machine, the second card would be a piece of cake to make too 🙂

I layered selected papers in the background and mounted a cut-out image, then added some die-cut stars and a trophy to match the stamped sentiment which says: “Dad, you’re the best”. I finished the card off with drops of liquid pearls and glitter. After all, men love to shine 🙂

 

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Desig, Crea-Lies; stamp: Lemonade; metal elements: ScrapHobby; string, ribbon: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you soon!

Hello Sweeties

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.

Blue Venus by Pascale B.

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.

 A very big welcome my Maja Design friends.
Tina Ollett here with you today to share a project created recently showcasing patterned papers from three gorgeous collections of Maja Designs.
It is titled “My Sunshine” and was inspired by a photo taken down at Redcliffe whilst we were making a visit to see some friends for coffee and milkshakes.
 
This project was originally going to be very shabby chic until I come across this photo with the rustic rocks that my daughter was sitting upon for the photo. Once I spyed these, the project automatically changed up to a rustic grungy kind of project which I totally miss doing.

Vintage Summer Basics – 1915

Vintage Romance – Deep Love bs

 I started my project off by layering papers from the Vintage Summer Basics (1915) and  Vintage Romances “Deep Love” bs . I primed my background to fix it. Dusty Attic Texture paste was used throught the Threaded Bead Stencil to create a little texture going across my page following the stripes from the papers that I used.
 
 I used some Rust Paste over my chipboards along with acrylic paints and art stones.
 I love how the large seashell as seen above here turned out. It was dressed similarly to the leaves but less emphasis on the browns. They were placed on lastly to highlight the blue and orange tints.
 
 I also coloured some of my pretty florals with acrylic paints as you can see above .
And a yummy view of the Swirly Frame that I used on this project.
Thank you for making the visit here today.
Until next time take care and happy crafting.
