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

The spring has come! And although March (and often April) in Poland are rather capricious when the weather is concerned, this year is exceptionally gracious. The sun comes out more and more often, the temperature is nice, not much rain – you just want to go for a walk 🙂 And feel like creating flowery cards, like the one I have for you today:

I used…well, yes, the Christmas papers again, but don’t they look very springy here? 😉 I combined the Monochromes sheets with the beautiful Ephemera backside paper. I distressed all the papers and layered them for a vintage, shabby chick background:

I wanted the card to be glamorous, so I added a cluster of roses with golden-lined petals and pearl rose leaves and a stamped sentiment that I heat-embossed with gold ep. The sentiment is mounted on a doily die-cut from mirror gold cardstock:

I added mirror gold pearls and some filigree chipboard flourishes covered with glitter. Tell me about the shine 😀

The card turned out pretty dimensional, so I added a card box decorated with glitter washi tape:

I like the way it turned out, bulky and glamorous 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Cheery Lynn Design; flowers, leaves: Prima; stamp: Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec; ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls: my stash.

 

For the next post I promise not to use Christmas papers anymore 🙂 The spring has come!

Happy birthday!

Hi everyone! It’s Camilla here today, showing you a card made with the wonderful Summertime papers.

I have made a birthday card, and used a lot of dies. The cake in the middle is made with a Magnolia die, using kraft cardstock and beautiful Summertime papers.

The white spots are Frantage.

The small butterfly is cut out from a Vintage Spring sheet.

The beautiful texts are from Stempelglede. I have stamped them with Memento – Rich cocoa.

Here you get a closer look at the papers and small details. The flowers are also cut out with Magnolia dies. I have added some Sisal grass under them, and painted with white Gesso here and there. The two stamps are Maja Papers cut out with a die. I ink the edges with Walnut Stain.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Take Time To Relax

Baby it’s cold outside! 🙂 We’re just having the first snowfall this season and it really makes you think of Christmas – but before we get into the holiday mood, I have a card to share focusing on different matters:

When life gets busy and we hurry to take care of so many things daily, we often forget to also relax properly. This card is supposed to remind a certain very busy bee to spend more time resting and enjoying life. Shouldn’t we all? 🙂

I made the card using various bits of papers to create a cozy scene with some stamped motives. First I layered some papers to make the walls of the room and then added various stamped images.

I coloured the girl with Distress inks and used the paper piecing technique for the armchair: stamped the image twice, on cardstock and on the patterned paper, cut out the seat, layered the two pieces and then added some shadows to make the seat more dimensional-looking:

I like the way it turned out a little dimensional but still able to go into an envelope 🙂

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Inkadinkado; button: Prosvet; pearls: my stash.

And that is all for today, thank you for visiting and see you later!

 

Happy Birthday

Hello sweet Maja fans.

Today it’s my turn again to show you something I made with gorgeous Maja papers .

This time I bring you a Happy Birthday card.

For this card I used two papers from the Vintage Romance collection, Love poetry and When I saw you,

as base I used  Lavender Rose from the Monochromes – Shades of Celebration

 

I took the right upper corner of the piece of paper i had on top and rolled it half way back.

I used A frame of tattered angels en put in halfway behind the roll , added some flowers and finished it of with some pearl swirls  from want 2 scrap.

I used some sentiment stamps from Paper Sweeties for the birthday message.

the label I used for the sentiment is made using a corner of a spellbinders die

Close up of the roll on top, and  on of the flowers with the frame underneath  it.

Thank you very much for visiting today, I hope I have given you some inspiration with my Birthday card.

 

Lots of Wishes

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

Forgive me please, but I’m back to my most favourite Maja collection, i.e. Denim&Friends. I just love the versatility of this set! The patterns, the colours – it’s so much more than just a masculine collection 🙂 And to prove that I have a birthday card to share – and it’s not necessarily for a man:

I layered light sand papers for my background and distressed all the edges. That provided a semi-dimensional matting for the focal decorative element, a chipboard layered clock:

I added a flower cluster in the lower left-hand corner and a small star banner in the opposite corner – I cut it out from the signature strip of the Monochrome-Aqua sheet (if you have seen some more of my projects, you know that I love using those tiny patterns too 🙂 )

Just look at this yummy dimension!

I really like the way the card turned out – light and delicate, with a romantic twist 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard clock: SnipArt; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; mists: Prima; stickers: Heidi Swapp; stamp: Lemonade; embossing powder: Ranger.

 

That is all for today, visit us daily for more inspiration!
