For the Love of Pearls

Morning Maja lovelies! It’s Andrea here with you today, bringing you some cards made with one of my most favorite Maja Design paper accoutrements…pearls! I simply love the elegant look of pearls and in contrast, you can soften and feminize a grungy, shabby card with delicate pearls. Maja Design papers are so delicate themselves so when you add pearls, you just up the elegance factor. This first card features the Sofiero collection (I tend to hoard these papers as they are no longer available {insert sad face here}):

PosyThanksMThis next card uses both Walking in the Forest and Vintage Autumn Basics. I love how I can mix collections of paper and they all coordinate beautifully:

BirthdayMMy last card was kind of an experiment, or a ‘pearl of wisdom’ if you will {insert wink here}. I had a doily, wanted to use a doily, didn’t want to use a doily AGAIN, so I settled for laying down the doily, inking it up with some Walnut Stain distress ink with a dauber over some Ska vi ta en fika paper and then removing the doily and….voila! The look without the paper! I then stamped my Verve sentiment in the middle and adorned the perimeter with strips of Zva Creative pearls.

LovenLifeMThanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me, hope the rest of it is wonderfully creative! …And don’t forget to bring out those pearls!
