Hi everyone! I hope you liked the Mood Board yesterday. And that you will join! Today I have this card for you. I hope you like it.

I have used the lovely papers from the Vintage Summer Basics.

 

The image is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I have stamped with Memento – Rich Cocoa.

I have used  Monochrome papers for the fence and the dragonfly. They are dies from Magnolia. The paper edges are sewed and I have added white gesso here and there.

A beautiful english rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. Fits perfect to the vintage papers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,

Hello Maja Friends,

This Spring is totally great, so war, so sunny, so happy to feel its smell.

I love mixing the collections and this time is not an exception, so again I played with Vintage Basics – Summer and Spring

 

Moreover I took the color sprays and the modelling paste I have in my stash and played a bit on my background, it has been a long since I practiced it last time.

And adding the flowers was the most delightful moment.

But paper layers is primary step for me.

 

Have a wonderful week end.

Hello Lenet here today and I bring you a…Christmascard.

I know a lot of you don’t want to think about any thing Christmassy right now but I’m in a Christmas mood all year long.

I’m a member of two facebook groups that have a Chrismascard challenge  , and for that I need to make two Christmas cards a month, I can share them but If I have the time I want to make  4 different ones . Two for each group. You can never have enough Christmascards

The Christmas collections of Maja are just to gorgeous for not using them , so I use them a lot. that means you will see more Christmas cards from me thru out the year.

This one is made with several leftovers from different Christmas collections. I just love to make bleu ones it gives that winter and snow feeling I love and always hope we have at that time.

 

Besides the papers I used spellbinder dies , summerfeelings doily die from studio light and the Tim Holtz mini snow flakes rosette die. I just love rosettes.

I hope you like the card I made for your inspiration hope to see you back next time and don’t forget to come back to see the amazing things the other Maja girls make for you

Hello dear friends!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout with a video tutorial to share with you. To create my page I used papers from the gorgeous ”I Wish” collection along with some beautiful Dusty Attic chipboards which was placed around a photo I found on Pinterest. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

 

You can watch all the procedure here…

And here are some close ups…

I used the ”I wish those memories will last” paper from the ”I Wish” collection and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Evergreen” and the ”Outdoors” papers from the ”Joyous Winterdays” collection.

To start, I applied a coat of clear gesso on the background. Then, I created texture with graphite paste and a stencil and heat emboss the pattern with the Wow metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing powder. Made some stamping here and there and used Lindy’s Gang sprays to add color.

Next, I embossed the ”Chain Circles” & the ”Ornate Corner #13” chipboard pieces with the Aged Ivory Stampendous embossing powder.
Continued with the ”Foliage #8” & ”Foliage #9” chippies which were painted with the Finnabair Golden Moss acrylic paint. The ”Window & Shutters #2” and the ”Wordpl@y3” pieces were also painted with the Finnabair Rustic Brown paint.

When everything was glued down I added some art stones and glass beads. The final touch was made with some splatters with white acrylic ink.

Paper used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

I wish a happy hello to all our friends of the Maja Design Blog! I hope you’re well and enjoying a lovely spring season. It’s Nancy on the blog today and I’m super excited to have something new to share with you.

I love anything and everything ‘time’ themed. It can be art, a time travel series or movie, or a vintage clock or pocket watch. I adore it all. With this in mind I felt inspired by Maja Design’s gorgeous Vintage Autumn Basics collection to create this new card.

There is quite a bit of fussy cutting involved with this card, from the clock to the vintage lady, the pink flowers, and the sentiment. All of this fussy cutting has made me realize I  I need better lighting in my craft room or stronger glasses. :-))

The roses are handmade. I have a tutorial for these roses on my blog.

Here are a few detail photos. Each embellishment is popped up with foam tape to create multiple layers. I tucked in a twine bow and some cheesecloth to finish things off.

I have the best time playing with my Maja Design papers! I hope you do, too!!

Maja Design Papers Used:

Other Products Used: Natural Twine, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Dies, Flower Shaping Kit, Flourish Die, Magnolia Rose Leaf Die, Tim Holtz Distress Tool, Cheesecloth, Sewing Machine, Thread. 

Thank you so much for visiting us on the blog today! It’s an honor and a pleasure to be here with you. I send wishes that you may be surrounded by all in life that is beautiful.

Hugs,
