Cathy - Summer Crush

Hello Maja Design friends! It’s Cathy here and I have a card to share with you today. It’s monochromatic in colour but I hope not in mood! I have used the newest collection, Summertime Crush which is my favourite collection at the moment!

I used a stamp from JustRite Enjoy the Day stamp set as my sentiment and die cut it with a Spellbinders ovals die. Using a distressing tool, I inked around the edges in a circular motion while the paper was still in the die using Weathered Wood Distress ink. This ink which matches the papers perfectly!

As you can see I have used a few patterns in this card. I used Dancing the Bop (front and back) and Long Summer Nights. By matting them in white, it helps to break it up and not have the papers compete with each other. I did ink and distress each of my layers using walnut stain distress ink, one of my favourite inks.

I used foam tape add some dimension to some of my layers. The base layer and the horizontal band was glued and everything else was attached with foam tape. I also used one the base strips from one of the papers out in the horizontal band. …don’t throw them!

Hi! I’m Cathy. I live in Sydney and am a Primary School teacher. I am passionate about teaching and love what I do. At present paper crafts are my creative outlet, which is my other passion. I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I do enjoy other crafts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crotchet…not enough time! I am always inspired to learn and to try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I love Maja Design papers and enjoy creating with them.
