Hello our blog fans. Have you seen the new collections ?. “Denim&Friends” with new Monochromes are great! They are so universal – I have so many ideas to use them for. My today’s inspiration is a masculine card.

Denim&FriendsIt is a card for a nice young gentleman. From this papers you can create easily the masculine cards, albums etc.

Denim&FriendsI love layers … like you could already seen many times. I like to use a small details. Cut them and combine together.

Hi there! Here comes a card I have made with the wonderful new papers from the Denim & Friends Collection.

Even if they are a bit masculine, you can easily use them for cuter cards:)

The image is from Magnolia’s Denim Collection and is coloured with Distress Ink.

I have added several layers with papers which you can see here.

Hi dear Maja fans! Hope you are fine! Here comes my latest card which I finished yesterday. I wanted to make a pink and yellow card, so I found the perfect pattern papers in the Nyhavn Collection:

Nyhavn-P

I have used a new image from Magnolia, and coloured her in matching colour as the papers. I use Distress Ink for my colouring.

The flowers are from Kort& Godt and WOC. To tone them down and to give them that shabby look, I painted over them with White Gesso. Under the flowers I have put some Sissal grass.

I have used drops of Liquid pearls in her hair. Behind the image I have put some cheese cloth and a doily.

You might have a better view of how the paper is built up under.

Here are the three pattern papers I have used:

Easy Shabby Chic Card Tutorial

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to our blog :)

Today I’m bringing you a romantic, delicate shabby chic card:

mdshabby

Believe it or not, but it’s super easy to make! And I have a step-by-step tutorial to prove it :)

For the card I used: pieces of papers (I chose the Vintage Romance collection), a handful of flowers of various sizes and some leaves, lace, waxed string and some adhesive media. I also used the distress ink and paper distresser to add some “age” to my card :)

shtut

  1. I started with cutting the papers: I cut the base of the DL card size and trimmed the second paper 0,5 cm less. The size of the top paper depends on the width of the lace (or how much of it you want to be visible) – mine is rather thin so the top layer of paper was ca. 8 cm wide. Then I inked all the edges:

shtut1

2. I distressed all the edges using the paper distresser. Then I took the middle layer paper and placed the lace along its edges:

shtut2

3. I wrapped the lace around the paper and attached the ends with double-sided tape:

shtut3

4. I layered the background and middle papers together:

shtut4

5. Then I added the top paper:

shtut5

6. I started to arrange the flower cluster, beginning with three largest flower. I placed them slightly diagonally in the middle:

shtut6

7. Then I added medium-sized flowers…

shtut7

8. …and the smallest flower and buds:

9. Then I added leaves, tucking them in between the flowers. For the sentiment I used a chipboard word:

shtut9

10. I made some bows using waxed string – I reccomend using this type of string as it’s very easy to shape – I curled the ends just by dragging them between my finger and thumb.

shtut10

11. I folded each bow in half, applied some glue on the knot and tucked the bows under the flowers on the sides:

shtut11

12. And then I added some finishing touches: covered the chipboard sentiment with glitter and added some liquid pearls dots here and there:

shtut12

See how easy was that? The card looks rich and elegant but it wouldn’t take more than half an hour to make :) Will you give it a go?

I have made a birthday card for you today, with the beautiful Sofiero papers.

Sofiero-P1

The letters and numbers are cut out with a word die from Sizzix.

IMG_7475

The image is from Magnolia and I have coloured it with Distress Inks.  I have stamped the image and text with Memento-Rich Cocoa. I have melted some FranTage around the image and added Liquid Pearls. On the flowers I have added Crackle Accent. The text is from Stempelglede.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the dies used are DooHickeys from Magnolia. I have inked all the edges with Distress Ink pad – Walnut Stain. And they are sewed on my sewing machine.
