Girly Cards

Hello, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog 🙂

I’m happy you’ve found some time to visit us and – hopefully – get inspired 🙂 I have two girly cards to share today.

I love colouring stamped images. Perhaps it’s not as trendy as mandala colouring that seems to have captured the world 😉 but it’s still relaxing, though it does take some time and therefore I can’t do it as often as I’d like to. But recently I bought cute stamps for colouring and just couldn’t resist! And here are the cards I made:

I used small paper pads for both cards so that designs are well visible. The first card is based upon the Vintage Baby collection. But this time I chose the blue-brown combo usually associated with boy themes 😉

The image I chose for the card features a teddy bear, so the teddy pattern was just the perfect choice 🙂

I chose a couple of flowers and a button to decorate the card:

I most often colour my stamped images with Distress inks and then accent them with glitter or liquid pearls. Here I used glitter for some bling 🙂

The other card adds some red accents as I used the Home for the Holidays collection 🙂

To make the image pop out I used plaid patterns for the background:

The decorative elements here include birdswing charm and plaid ribbon with some sweet little flowers:

To imitate light glow, I use white gel pen, like here on the apple:

I hope some girl would be happy to receive a card with the cute image in it 🙂

 

Supplies:

Maja Design papers: small pads for Vintage Baby and Home for the Holidays collections. Other: stamps: Gorjuss by Santoro; Distress inks, Stickles glitters: Ranger; flowers, ribbon, charm: my stash.

See you soon 🙂
