Hi everyone! I amback with a green card for today. And I have used some papers from this stunning collection!!

The sweet image from Magnolia and the Country Girl is coloured in the same colours as the papers. I have used Distress Ink for my colouring.

The flowers are made with Magnolia dies and Foamiran from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have used Fika papers for the tassels aswell. And you can see that I have sewed around the edges of the paper.

Some banners on the top, between the butterflies.The text is from Stempelglede. And this card has been published in the April issue of Ett Trykk.

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

What a Lovely Day!

I wish a happy to hello to all of our wonderful visitors at the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy here, and I’m thrilled to join you on the blog today. I have a brand new all occasion card to share.

Once again I’m quite inspired by pastels, which I attribute to the beautiful weather and long sunny days, and the lovely Sofiero collection is just what I’m looking for!

Each paper is distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. A paper doily anchors the lush bouquet of paper flowers.

Twine bows add a frilly  and feminine touch. The sentiment is part of the paper collection, no stamping needed for this one! I did a bit of stamping with a script stamp to add a bit of interest, then added a dusting of gesso.

Below is a peek of the interior of the card. I always try to coordinate it with the front.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Doilies, Twine, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Paper Flowers, Script Stamp, Archival Ink, Gesso, Paint Brushes, Adhesives. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! It’s an honor to be here with you. I hope your day is filled with joy and fun filled hours of creativity.

Hugs,

Hello our blog friends. Today I would like to show you my mini tutorial for a childish card. I bought one of the most popular metal dies from Sizzix (than’s Marta for you help ! ) and finally after a few weeks I managed to use it !

  1. I was looking for a pastel and sweet paper collection – Summer Crush was just perfect.
  2. I used some of my metal dies and cut the elements to use with my composition.
  3. Added some laces, flowers and created the base.
  4. Painted edges of the elements with Distress Vintage Photo ink.
  5. Put all elements together.
  6. Added flowers, chipboards, splashed my card with the white ink.

Hope you will like my inspiration. Hugs, Paulina

Hello everyone,

today i have quiet a different card to share.Its a envelope style card which also serves as a tiny mini album.I made two envelopes and attached it together and added a ribbon closure.I have used one of my favorite  collection “vintage baby”,i guess its been few years since its released but its so popular and i still keep seeing projects with this everywhere,so after hoarding it for so long i decided to use it:)

Maja designs papers are so sturdy and double sided ,so i used the paper itself to make the envelopes instead of cardstock,in this way it looks more elegant.

The inside of the envelopes has two photo mats one small and one big.The inside of the envelope can be filled with gift cards,or journal tag etc.

Maja papers used:Cherish , Our little miracle , Baby shower bs , Ephemera cards

Vintage-Baby-P

Thank you for stopping by.

Happy crafting

You Are So Loved!

Hello, dear friends! I’m so happy you’re here with us on this wonderful Monday. It’s Nancy on the blog with you, here to share a new card. I hope everyone who is a mother had a lovely Mother’s Day, at least in the U.S., as I know it’s on a different day in other countries.

Today’s card is created for my daughter’s birthday. I want her to have a card with all of my love put into it. That’s really what crafting and art are about for me; putting my heart and soul into a creation that will hopefully brighten someone’s day. I’ve been drawn to pastels recently, which seems to happen this time of year, so for this card I’m using the beautiful Coffee in the Arbor collection.

The two large flowers are crafted from the paper collection, with the addition of smaller purchased flowers to bring out the pretty yellows in the paper.

The florals sit atop a base of venice lace and are intertwined with a loopy twine bow.

Each layer of paper is distressed and stitched. The sentiment stamp is perfect for my sweet girl’s birthday.

Below is a peek at the interior of the card.

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals dies and Distress Tool, Heartfelt Creations Flower Shaping Kit, Stamens, Yellow Paper Flowers, Venice Lace, Sentiment Stamp, Archival Ink, Twine, Sewing Machine, Thread.

Thank you so much for joining us on the blog today. I send wishes for all things good and wonderful, as well as many happy hours of creative time!

Hugs,
