Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am back with a late night card. This time I have made a frame card with the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. The paper you can spot the best on the card is called 1933 (with flowers).

I have painted this Sitting Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers, to match the papers. I think both colours and papers fit so well together.

Inside the frame I have cut out a bird house from the papersheet called 1925. The same paper I have used on the base on the card.

The text “Gratulerer” on top of the card is made from a die from Papirdesign, and means “Congratulations”.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have painted the flowers and papers with White Gesso, to give the card a more shabby look.

Under you can see how I have put the card together, as I have first made the frame, and then fasten it to the card.

Thats all from me tonight! Stay safe!

With love,

A frame card

Hi everyone! I am back with a frame card I have made. I hope you all are fine<3

I have used papers from both collections above for this card. The frame is coverd with a sheet from Denim & Friends, but the rest I have used are from the Little Street Cafe Collection.

I wanted to capture this sweet Tilda out walking outside late at night. It is a starry and bright sky, and there are some fireworks as she walkes along the lane.

Therefore I found this lovely blue spotted paper from Denim & Friends, for the back. And it fittet so nicely with the Little Street Papers, which I have used to decorate a whole scene.

All the cut outs are made with dies from Magnolia.

White spots here and there are made with white Gesso. It gives the card a touch of shabby look.

The flowers are also made with Maja papers. Behind them I have put some Sissal gras.

The image is painted with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. Soft colours to match the papers.

The depth of the card/frame is one cm. And I have taken some photos of it laying down, to give you a better view of it.

 

 

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog.

With love,

In the waiting room

Hi everyone! I am back after some problems with my computer, but now it is fixed and as good as it gets. I made two cards with the gorgeous (and maybe my favorite collection) Summertime papers.  I just love the red and pink papers, so beautiful!

This card is a frame card, where I have made a frame, and put it on a card. I have used Malins tutorial. But I have started with a Bazzill Vanilla papers measuring 19 x 19 cm. Then scored it twice at one cm. The “frame” is measuring 3 cm. You will get this when you look at Malins tutorial 😉 The middle of the frame is measuring 9 x 9 cm.

As you can see we are at the doctors waiting room. Maybe you have had a toothache so bad that you went to the doctor as Tilda here has? Or is it the hospital? Anyway the nurse is ready to help them both 🙂

The flowers (Waterlilies) are also made with the lovely papers from the Summertime Collection. The images, dies and text are from Magnolia.

I have coloured the images with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

With love,

A card with a frame inside!

Hi dear Maja fans! It is Camilla again, showing you a card I have made with the lovely papers from the Denim & Friends collection. Wow, I just love the new papers. I made this card to my aunt and uncle who both celebrate their 60 years birthday this Summer.

Denim-P

The card was inspired by a card made by the talented Cathrine Sandvik in the latest issue of Ett Trykk. Since there was no tutorial, I made it on my own. It is kind of making a frame card, only to put the frame inside the folder.

I have coloured the image from Stempelglede with Distress Ink, re-inkers. The pink is Victorian Velet, and the blue is Weathered Wood. I have also added some liquid pearls on to it.

Under you have a view of how it looks inside with the frame.

Blue and beige is some of my favourite colours to work with, and I think this collection is one of my favourite from Maja Design!

Lots of love and hugs from
