Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am back with a late night card. This time I have made a frame card with the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. The paper you can spot the best on the card is called 1933 (with flowers).

I have painted this Sitting Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers, to match the papers. I think both colours and papers fit so well together.

Inside the frame I have cut out a bird house from the papersheet called 1925. The same paper I have used on the base on the card.

The text “Gratulerer” on top of the card is made from a die from Papirdesign, and means “Congratulations”.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have painted the flowers and papers with White Gesso, to give the card a more shabby look.

Under you can see how I have put the card together, as I have first made the frame, and then fasten it to the card.

Thats all from me tonight! Stay safe!

With love,

Card For A Friend

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

With all this lockdown thing, as cumbersome as it is, there is one thing positive, I think. We started to notice and appreciate many things in life we’ve so far taken for granted. Going out for dinner, attending a concert, visiting a museum or even a shopping mall – and most of all – meeting with family and friends. We’ve seemed to have forgotten how important that little everyday joys mean to us and now we value them again. I also have some dear friends that I think of more often than I used to. And therefore todya I’m bringing you a card for a friend.

For this card I used the Little Street Cafe collection – that is perfect for a garden scene too 🙂 (and one of the papers is called “Meeting friends”! 🙂 )

I layered some of the flowery patterns from the collection and mixed them with plain Monochrome sheets. My friend is a keen gardener, so I thought this stamped girl image would be perfect for her!

I made a plant using a rose heart mold and a plant pot die cut. I coloured the heart with dye ink markers and covered with glitter, then I “planted” it with a glitter cardstock strip 🙂

Then I added a stamped sentiment and some mini roses:

To finish the card I added some sequins in between the paper layers.

 

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Joy!, Crea-Lies; stamp: Arine by Lemonade; roses: Wild Orchid Crafts; sequins, bling: my stash.

I do hope my friends would like the card! What do you think?

See you soon!

For this card  I used the of Denim and Girls and the Monochromes Shades of Denim

Dies I used  are The postage stamp frame from TimHoltz and the word Baby is a die from Marianne Design.

The little chipboard hearts come from a set of Maya Road I colored and glittered them withsome embossingpowder.

Hello Maja  sweet Maja Fans

Lenet here today. I hope you are all healthy and well.

I don’t know how things are going in your country but here things are getting back to normal , as normal as can be.  Next month all cafe, restaurants, movietheaters, musea everything is going to be open again. Of course only for limited amount of people to enter.

Now without further ado , here is a card I made for you using the 6″x”6 paper pack of Sofiero. I love shabby chic and I think this collection is perfect for creating  shabby chic projects.

I did some stitching around some of the pieces of paper, I think it always adds something extra.

 

And everything shabby chic needs besides pastel colors are lots of flowers and roses , pears and nice bows.

I hope you like the card I made for you .

Stay safe and healthy

Thank You Teacher Cards

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Although the pandemic caused closure of schools worldwide, it doesn’t mean studying stopped as well (but perhaps pupils aren’t so happy about it 😉 ). And of course it doesn’t mean teachers stopped working. Running online classes is no less demanding and many claim they spend even more time getting the lessons ready than at school. Most students in Poland won’t be returning to schools before the summer break, but they still want to express their gratitude towards their techaers who help them deal with this difficult situation we’re all in. And so I made two cards thay say “Thank you!”:

They are larger than my usual cards, measuring 15×20 cm (so twice the regular size), I guess these pupils are particularly grateful! 🙂 One is for the headmaster:

…and the other for a Polish language teacher:

The  card for the headmaster features the Little Street Cafe collection and a hand-coloured stamped images of an owl and some books that I also heat-embossed with gold ep. I added a flower cluster and die cut sentiment:

For the Polish language teacher card I used the Celebration collection. The focal point is a book I made from scraps of paper and decorated with flowers made from foamiran and an embossed chipboard sentiment. I also added a beautiful letter-patterned ribbon to look like a bookmark going across the card:

I hope the teachers would like the cards as much as I liked working on them!

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Lemonade, Agateria; dies: Leane Creatief, Nellie Snellen, Marianne Design; flowers: Prima, handmade; chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; embossing powder: Blue Fern Studios; enamel dots: DP Craft; border punch: EK Success; ribbon: Eight.pl.

That’s all for today, stay healthy at home, and see you soon!
