Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today :)

With Christmas coming closer and closer, I think it’s a good moment to start some serious Christmas cardmaking ūüėČ For my today’s post I created two cards, using the latest Joyous Winterdays collection and the traditional holiday red and green palette:

Both my cards feature a manger scene chipboard pieces. In the first card I chose darker red and green flourish patterns layered upon light paper for contrast:

I covered the chipboard piece with crackle accents and decorated it with die-cut leaves and snowflakes, a petaloo flower, tiny pom-poms and crystals and an acrylic angel button:

In the other card I created a shadowbox frame for the chipboard piece, but as the card is to be mailed, I kept it just barely raised:

I covered the chipboard manger with glitter and decorated with a mulberry flower, large crystal that looks like frozen ice, and some die cuts:

I really love how easy it is to get a vintage, shabby look for your projects with Maja papers! Just perfect for traditional Christmas cards :)

And here’s what I used to make my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Magnolia, Impression Obsession, Sizzix, Joy!; holly punch: Woodware; flowers: Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Wycinanka; glitter: Ranger; pom-poms, button: my stash.

 

I do hope you find some inspiration for your Christmas cards :)

See you soon!

Goodmorning Maja Design Fans,

Today I’d like to share some projects I made with my lovely Maja Design papers all the flowers you will see on my projects are all hand made with dies. I love making winter projects although I dislike winter time here in The Netherlands the days are getting colder and the night longer. I love the getting cozy part but the rest not so much. My first project is a 8×8 layout made with different Maja Designs collections.

As I said I love playing with snow effects and I did that massively here on this layout…can you see which collections I have used here? Don’t you just love that picture? Although I dislike winter time I love snow and the peacefulness it brings….hope it will snow this year.

Hello our blog friends. This year I have to create cards for Christmas a little bit earlier. I planned to have holiday at the beginning of December, that’s why my season starts right now¬†.¬†Here is my today’s inspiration :¬†Christmas CardsChristmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards Christmas Cards

Like you could see some of my cards are full of layers and flowers, some not. The reason is really simple – some of them I/ or my family will send by post. It is much easier do not have so much volume then.

Let me know if you like my inspiration, please.  Hug, Paulina Padoriaa-sign

Christmas Cards In Blue

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today :)

Have you purchased our latest collection yet? I can tell you it’s just wonderful! One collection to use for traditional green and red Christmas projects and blue and white wintery creations. And of course some universal patterns you can use for just about anything you create :)

For my today’s post I decided to share two Christmas cards I made using the blue-red palette, as I already created some red and green ones (see the Moodboard challenge post ūüėČ ):

mdcblue

In the first card I used a St.Nicholas image from the Ephemera sheet (small pad) and mounted it a bit on tags I cut out of various papers to add some nice pattern combo in the background. Then I added the flower cluster including winter leaves I die cut from glitter cardstock.

mdcblue1

mdcblue2

I also included little banners I cut out of signature strips – I just love using these bonus mini patterns!

mdcblue3

For the second card I used a stamped image that I coloured with Distress inks. Then I placed it on the background of layered papers, including the one I stamped the vintage postcard on:

mdcblue4

For the flower cluster I also used die-cut leaves and a Petaloo flower. I inked the corners of my coloured image and added some liquid pearls “snow”:

mdcblue6

Though I’m more for the traditional Christmas reds and greens, I really like the way those blue babies turned out :)

And here’s what I used:

Maja papers:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Docrafts; flowers: Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts; dies: Sizzix, Magnolia, Craft&You Design; chipboard: Scrapiniec; bling, felt snowflake: Home&You; ribbon, snowflake stones: my stash.

 

See you soon!
