Hello Maja Friends, it’s Elena here to share several cards I made playing with the purple hues.

Lilac_Cards_Maja_Design_Elena

Each time the leaves left the trees, and the landscape is dull and grey around, I start to look for some bright colors, and I’ve noticed each November I turn to lilac and purple hues.

For my cards I used Enjoying Outdoors collection, so rich and so beautiful for the mature Autumn Season.

I made a lot f die cutting and used the pearlescent gold and white cardstock for my die cuts

They pop up on the purple background, you can notice

However I added the white and pale pink flowers, I wanted my cards to be feminine and soft

I made 3 more cards using the other one sketch

But actually I used the same die shapes for my paper layering

I like adding the pearls as the finish touch to my frames

Christmas Cards In Blue

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

Have you purchased our latest collection yet? I can tell you it’s just wonderful! One collection to use for traditional green and red Christmas projects and blue and white wintery creations. And of course some universal patterns you can use for just about anything you create :)

For my today’s post I decided to share two Christmas cards I made using the blue-red palette, as I already created some red and green ones (see the Moodboard challenge post ūüėČ ):

mdcblue

In the first card I used a St.Nicholas image from the Ephemera sheet (small pad) and mounted it a bit on tags I cut out of various papers to add some nice pattern combo in the background. Then I added the flower cluster including winter leaves I die cut from glitter cardstock.

I also included little banners I cut out of signature strips – I just love using these bonus mini patterns!

mdcblue3

For the second card I used a stamped image that I coloured with Distress inks. Then I placed it on the background of layered papers, including the one I stamped the vintage postcard on:

For the flower cluster I also used die-cut leaves and a Petaloo flower. I inked the corners of my coloured image and added some liquid pearls “snow”:

Though I’m more for the traditional Christmas reds and greens, I really like the way those blue babies turned out :)

And here’s what I used:

Maja papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Docrafts; flowers: Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Sizzix, Magnolia, Craft&You Design; chipboard: Scrapiniec; bling, felt snowflake: Home&You; ribbon, snowflake stones: my stash.

 

See you soon!

Hello Maja Friends,

Today I’ve got a few cards to share with you that I made using Walking in the Forest collection

Handmade_Card_King_by_Elena_Olinevich5

I started making the cards and thought that I would make something floral with bright colors, but then I saw the worn jeans and plaid patterns and changed my mind. I decided to try something for the male

I found some dies in my stash – the royal crowns and the key holes and realized that they would be a perfect match for my cards

But I didn’t want my cards to be too serious , so I added the mustache chipboard

and even placed some of them on each other.

My finish step was to add the jewels on the crown. I like how they turned on  in fact.
