Hi there! I am back with a new card. And I have tried to make a Twist & Pop Card, which is my first time. But I understand that they have been popular some time. It was fun to make one, so you should have a go too!

After making some pinkish wedding projects, I have tried to give this card a more Autumn look. This collection is wonderful for that too.

The Magnolia image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers. The sentiment is also from Magnolia. I have cut out the leaves from different Miles Apart papers.

To make this card I have watched Srushti Patil’s tutorial on YouTube, called Twist & Pop Card Tutorial.

Here is how it looks like when it is open. The inside is decorated with yummy Miles Apart papers.

And I have tried to show how it looks like when you close it.

 

 

Almost there 🙂

 

 

I have painted here and there with white Gesso. In the middle of the sunflowers (and in Tilda’s hair) I have put some liquid pearls. Behind the image there is some cheese cloth.

Some more details from inside of the card. You can decorate it however you want. With images, sentiments ect.

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Blog!

With love,

Happy Halloween

Hello Sweet Majafans,

Lenet here  and today I bring you something totally different .

Soon it will be Halloween , we don’t really celebrate this here in the Netherlands but it is done more and more every year.

Spooky parties , tours , decorating you see it more and more. but no trick or treat .

We have something simular in some parts  on november the 11th called Sint Maarten.  as soon as it gets dark children carrying lanterns the made at school ,

go singing from door to door collecting sweets. always very fun to see al those nice lanterns and hear them singing , especially the little children.

Unfortunately no Sint Maarten or Halloween this year due corona / covid.

But that didn’t keep me from making this Halloween card. Although Maja doesn’t have a  specific Halloween collection, the purple from Enjoying the Outdoors and the orange-ish one from Little Street Cafe are perfect for this.

So with any further ado  here is my Halloween card.

The witch is Wanda a stamp from Waltzingmouse the sentiment Happy  Halloween is from the same set. The frame is made with the Ornate Frame sizzix die from Tim Holtz altertions.

The bats are made with dies from some dutch brand I don’t know.

I hope you like my Halloween card.

thank you for visiting , take care and stay safe

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

I still can’t get over the Miles Apart collection! I hope you can’t either, as I bring you another card I made using that beautiful set:

I wanted this wedding card to be delicate, pastel and romantic, so I chose light papers in ivory and blush pink to make a background for a die-cut oval panel, upon which I placed a chipboard piece in the shape of newlyweds riding a bike. I think it’s a nice symbol of their future together, common  goals and direction 🙂

I covered the chipboard with subtle irridescent glitter to give it a more glamorous look. I also added a hand-cut stamp image from the Ephemera sheet, a “Postcard” stamped word and a couple of flowers. Opalescent sequins, ribbon with wedding rings pattern and tring complete the design.

The card turned out pleasantly dimensional…

…so I put it in a box decorated with metallic washi tape:

I love how the Miles Apart collection can be used for delicate, romantic projects 🙂 What do you think?

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: Chipboard: Wycinanka.pl; flowers: Prima; die: CreaLies; stamp: Tim Holtz; ribbon, sequins: my stash.

 

And that’s all for today, stay safe and well and visit us again soon for more inspiration!

Romantic layered card.

Hello Sweet Maja fans,

Lenet here and today I bring you this romantic card with lot’s of layers and fussy cuts tucked between them.

I never heard of fussy cuts  until  Amy called them like that.  So those little things  you cut out with a little scissor are fussy cuts. Love it.

 

For this card I used the Celebration 15×15 paperpad the fussy cuts are cut out of Engagement  from the Vintage romance collection.

Here a close up of the fussy cuts

And the fussy cuts tucked between the layers  to give it some depth.

I love to use layers on a card . I use foamtape between them to stick the layers together.

And a close up of the left uppercorner  with the fuzzy cuts.

Thank you very much for visiting , Hope you like  the card I made for you.

Stay Safe and see you next time.

          

Miles Apart Wedding Card

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

As you can easily tell by the titlte, I bring you a wedding card today that I made using the latest Maja release, the Miles Apart collection:

You most definitely know that Miles Apart papers feature some beautiful and romantic flower patterns that are just perfect for occasions like a wedding. But this time instead of putting those gorgeous flowers in the card background, I took inspiration from them and tried to recreate the bouquet ON the card. And so I chose delicate light papers for the background and added a flower cluster that imitates the patterned papers:

To the rose bouquet I added die-cut leaves, crystal gems and some chipboard ornaments. Vintage ribbon and enamel dots complete the design:

Just look how nicely dimensional it turned out!

…which means it needed a box too 🙂 I decorated it with washi tape with rose pattern – a perfect match!

What do you think? I must say I’m quite satisfied 🙂

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Na Strychu; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka.pl; gems: my stash.

See you soon!
