Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today ūüôā

It’s been a while since I did some colouring, so for today’s post I decided to create a set of two baptism cards, for a boy and girl, that feature a hand-coloured stamped image. And here it is:

I kept the same design for both cards, just changing the colour paletter between girly pink and boyish turqouise ūüôā The design is very simple: layered panels of papers, the top one with a decorative border that you can cut using decorative scallop scissors, or even hand cut, so you don’t even need dies.

Then I placed the image of a sleeping baby that I coloured with Distress inks:

…and added a heat-embossed stamped sentiment with baptism formula in Polish and surrounded it with flowers:

I mounted the particular layers on 3D foam for some nice dimension:

There is also a bit of glam to the cards with subtle golden shine of the embossed stamp and crystal and pearl drops.

I wanted to keep the cards simple but elegant – and I think I succeded in that ūüôā What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Whiff of Joy; flowers, vintage ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Spellbinders; pearls, crystals, string: my stash.

And that’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

 

Count Your Blessings

Hello! It’s Nancy with you today, and I’d like to wish a warm welcome to all of our friends of the Maja Design Blog!

It’s the first week of October, and many are already reveling in the refreshing brace of fall. It’s still in the 90’s in Charleston, so here we must wait a couple of months to enjoy those cooler temperatures.

To escape the heat we’re planning a mountain holiday, where we’ll partake in all the delights of autumn, including nature’s glorious display of color. The Smoky Mountains, always teaming with abundance and life, transition from the lush green of summer, to every shade of orange, yellow, red, olive, and brown. It’s a sight of such beauty that it seems almost otherworldly, like something out of a story book. That is my inspiration for today’s card, and there could be no better paper collection to bring it to like than Maja Design’s Walking in the Forest.

The beautiful design papers are distressed and stitched to form a multi-layered base.

Purchased paper flowers and die cut leaves of multiple varieties comprise the floral spray, anchoring and drawing the eye to the focal point of die cut tags and bird stamps, all created using the paper collection.

The sentiment is hand stamped using archival ink.

Finishing touches include a loopy twine bow, fall berries, and a dusting of gesso here and there.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz Leaf Dies, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Paper Flowers, Sentiment Stamp, Archival Ink, Natural Twine, Fall Berries, Foam Adhesive, Glue Gun, Sewing Machine, Thread.

I’m off to bring some semblance of order to my craft room. It’s not always the tidiest of spaces, but it never fails to be the comfiest. It’s my own personal Hobbit-hole, where I’m never far from a tea kettle and a cozy day of crafting.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I wish you a lovely day filled with all things good and wonderful. I hope you’ll have plenty of time to work on your own creations, and remember to share them with us here at the Maja Design Mood Board Challenge!

Hugs,

 

Spread Joy

Hello, and welcome to all of our friends of the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy with you on the blog on this lovely day. I’m having a joyful day filled with flower making, stamping, and playing with my pretty Maja Design papers, all of which has led to this new card to share with you.

I’m using Maja Design’s Fika collection again this week, because I absolutely love purple, and this collection is filled with every hue of this beloved color. I’m working primarily with the deepest purple in the collection (almost a purple-blue), with accents in lighter tones.

I’m like a kid at Christmas with some new stamps I have in my collection, and have been happily stamping away, finding new ways to use them to enhance my projects.

I’m also in flower making mode. I love creating flowers from Maja Design papers. It’s the best paper I’ve ever found for this purpose, and when I take the time to make my own, my flowers perfectly coordinate with each project. I have tutorials for these roses on my blog for anyone who would like to give them a try.

The leaves are die cut and tucked in amongst the florals, along with autumnal berries resin frames, and a natural twine bow.

 

I’m now sitting at my very messy craft desk, blissfully surrounded by layer upon layer of Maja Design goodness, and I’m counting my blessings to have had a chance to create something today.¬†Taking the time to use our hands, minds, and energy doing something we love is so important to our mental and physical health. I hope you’ll be able to find some quiet moments in your day to bring your masterpieces to life.

Maja Design Papers Used: 

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies and Distress Tool, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Flower Shaping Tools, Seth Apter Stamp, Unlabeled Sentiment Stamp, Archival Ink, Prima Resin Frames, Natural Twine, Acrylic Paint and Brushes, Sewing Machine, Thread.

Thank you so much for joining us on the blog! Your visit is a bright spot in in our day, and we hope you’ll be back each and every day to check out new projects from the design team. Don’t forget to take part in the monthly mood board challenge for the chance to win an entire collection of your choice of Maja Design paper. I wish you a week filled with love, magic, and crafty adventures!

Hugs, 

  

It’s a girl..

Hello sweet Maja fans.

It’s thursday again and my turn to show you what I have made with the gorgeous papers of Maja Design.

Today I bring you this Baby card. We got happy news from  friends of ours they are  expecting a baby girl .

Im so happy for them and decided to make a baby card to congratulate them.

For this card I used the uber sweet collection of  Vintage baby.

I used my spellbinders ovals to cut out the baby image of the sheet It’s a Girl! and crochet a cute little lacy edge around it.

I cut out a piece of the corner to use on the front and inside of the card.

For the back ground I used Flowers for mum and a piece of the bottom strip at the side underneath it I attached some lace.

on the inside I used a tag ,the baby girl sentiment,¬† the stamp with It’s a girl¬† from the sheet with die cuts¬† . The journaling card is from the sheet journaling cards pink.

At the bottom I glued the strip from First teddy bear.

To give the card a little extra pizzazz I  took my sewing machine and added some stitches to the card.

I’m really in love with this collection and think about making a minialbum¬† with it as well.

For now I hope you enjoy this baby card as much as I do.

Thank you very much for visiting and make shure you come back for more inspiration from the other Maja Girls
