Hello  sweet maja fans,

Lenet herre and today I bring you this congratulate card for some one who just has a new home.

Both our daughter and son are trying to find a home for themself, but because there is a big shortage for homes I think it can take a while before the finally find one.

Of course I hope they find one soon and I can sent this card to either one of them on thier new home adress.

 

I made this card using the Bohemian Harmony Collection. The chippies I used are from scrapaholics, I colored them with acrylic paints.

The stamps are som golden oldies from Waltzing mouse.

I hope you like my card and hope to see you again soon.

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

Easter is coming soon, so it’s high time to share some card inspiration for the occasion 🙂 For my first cards this year I chose spring flowery backgrounds to emphasize the joy of this important celebration!

I made both cards using the Miles Apart collection that with its beautiful patterns and cheerful soft colours is just perfect for the purpose 🙂

For the first cards I used the green-white-gold combo, with the Easter Lamb as the focal point, and added some mini flowers to match the flowers in the background paper:

For the second card I added some juicy pink magenta to the colour palette and decorated the stamped and embossed Easter song quotation with chipboard filigree Easter eggs and mini flowers cluster:

I really love how the papers accent the character of the holiday, and adding gold to cheerful green and pink gave the cards elegant festive look.

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: CreaLies; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps, chipboard, ep: Agateria.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

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

February is in full bloom and St. Valentine’s Day approaching quickly 🙂 And since cards play a major role in this holiday, I  bring you two samples for inspration:

 

I made both cards using the Miles Apart collection and focused on blending my embellishments into the background papers. And so, in the first card I cut the paper so that the top of the printed house is visible, and arranged die cut motives of clouds and a balloon so that they look as if floating above the house. Then I filled the remaining space with die cut letters that I arranged like a crossword puzzle, and mini heart sequins:

In the other card I incorporated the flower cluster into the bouquet printed in the background paper. The flowers, both printed and dimensional, are a subtle companion to the glitter foam heart with toothpick handles 🙂 I finished the card off with a stamped sentiment and opalescent sequins:

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: My Favourite Things, Marianne Design, Little B; stamp: Agateria; punches: DpCraft; sequins: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting ans see you soon!
