The image is from Magnolia, and I have coloured her with Distress Ink, re-inkers and markers. I try to use colours that fit the papers used.

Some homemade flowers together with roses from WOC. The flowers are cut out from crepe paper with some dies.

Goodmorning Maja fans,

Oh how I love my beautiful Maja Design papers…..today I’d like to show you a little card with handmade flowers and a lot of bling which is totally not me but I loved making this card. This card is made out of four different collections but my base was the pretty “Summertime” collection. This is a card I made for my mother for the upcoming mothers day hihihi yes I am pretty early this time….

20170210_092116_HDR1

It’s a easel card made out of cream card stock and the flowers are made out of dies and I finished them off with some glass glitter and some mica powder to give it more shine. Also I added some bling swirls, some shine spray & cream prills.

Hi there! I hope February has been good to you so far. When it is cold outside I dream about Summer:) And here is a card for you with the lovely Vintage Summer Basics collection.

Vintage-Summer-Basics-P

I will give you the list of the papers used at the end of this post. But first some more photos of my card. As you can see I have a round window in the front.

IMG_6755

And I have also made a belt to keep the card together. The paper lace is made with a die from Magnolia called Swedish lace.

IMG_6736

Out to the left I have used a punch called Word Window Punce on the Maja paper. The leaf circle is made with a Magnolia die and the pink flowers with a Small Retro Flower punch. And Tilda is coloured in colours that match the lovely Maja papers.

IMG_6740

I have stamped the text directly on to the pattern paper. It is from Stempelglede. As you can see I have sewed the papers, and inked the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain.

IMG_6764

And here is the inside of the card. “Tommel opp” means “Thumbs up”. I have also painted with White Gesso here and there.

IMG_6769

I have used the same pattern papers inside the card as the front. And also on the sides. They are only glued on top and on the bottom, so that I can put a tag, a greeting or some money under it.

Here are the papers used:

Thank you so muvh for visiting the Maja Design blog! I wish you a great day!

Valentine’s Day Cards

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

I’m really happy that soon after warm, family-spent Christmas time we can celebrate another day filled with love and friendship :) St. Valentine’s Day is such a positive holiday! And valentine cards are my second to Christmas cards to make. And as February begins, I’m ready to celebrate 😉

What would be a better collection to use for love-themed cards than Vintage Romance, of course! And so I made a masculine and feminine card for Valentines.

mdval

The masculine card is kind of clean&simple style – I tried to handwrite in one of the trendy fonts of lately, as if a love letter, added a die-cut cupid and tiny forget-me-nots that also appear in the card background:

mdval2

Though the card is pretty simple, it still has some nice dimension :)

mdval3

For the feminine card I went for the shabby chic style.

mdval4

I used one of my most favourite designs from the collection, with gorgeous roses and forget-me-nots.  I distressed a crafter’s clay frame with antique golden paint and filled the inside with pink roses and added some cheesecloth on top. I also used cheesecloth to accent the particular layers of the background. And then I noticed that right above the rose frame there’s a “Love Story” printed in the background – how fitting! :)

mdval5

Then I stamped the “I love you” sentiment and heat-embossed it with golden ep:

mdval6

I really like the way the cards turned out – the Vintage Romance collection is just perfect for love projects!

 

Supply list:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Impression Obsession; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; frame: Martha Stewart clay & paint; mold: my stash; stamp: Lemonade.

 

See you soon!
