Hello sweet Maja fans.

Lenet here , today it’s my turn to bring you some inspiration.

Today I have this Christmas card for you made with the wonderful Christmas collection Joyous winterdays and Monochromes- Shades of Winterdays.

For the card topper / centerpiece I made a rosette  using the Tim Holtz minipaper rosettes die.

I used a a 1.5″ circle puch for  the Santa picture , it comes from the vintage frost Basics 14th of December sheet.

The scallop circles underneath are made with  Spellbinders Nestabilities.

Behind it all you see a snowflake made with the snowflake die  of the Winter trails collection from studio Light.

 

I added an seambinding bow and some “snow” made with paper texture paste from Finnabair to complete the card and winter feeling.

Thank you for visiting , I hope you like the christmas card I made for you and that it gave you inspiration to get crafty.

Make shure you come back for lots more inspiration given by the other wonderful Maja Girls.

Hello Sweet Maja Fans

It’s my turn again to give you a little inspiration. Today I bring you this Christmas card.

As christmas is getting closer I went to my christmascard stash and noticed I ned to make some more cards if I want to sent my loved ones a hand made card.

So this is one less to make.

For this card I used  papers from the Joyous Winterdays,  a beautiful collection in red, green and bleu….love it , the Monochromes -shades of winterdays.

for the centerpeice of the card I made a rosette using the large Tim Holtz rosette die,  the number 25 and rudolf ( who I gave a red nose with a little pearl )are made with movers and shakers dies from Tim Holtz as well.

The ribbons and the Merry Christmas are made with the cut off strips of the 12″x12″ papers.

I hope you enjoy this card I made for you.

Happy crafting  and don’t forget to check in tomorrow for new ispiration brought to you by one of the other Maja Girls.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Joyous Winterdays collection. I chose to work with a photomontage I’ve made, inspired by The Castle of The Pyrénée by René Magritte. Oh, I forget to tell you that there is a step-by-step video showing you how I make this layout.

Mont Saint Michel by Pascale B.

I stamped randomly the background with two of my stamps Pascale’s Form and Pascale’s Grammar with a black Archival ink. Next, I primed the background with clear gesso.

When dry, I used different stamps to add some color to the background with different inks. I finished with splatters of the same inks. When happy with the result, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste.

While the paste was drying, I colored the Archival board with Magicals. Next, I sprinkled them with an embossing powder to add some interest.

I colored the flowers with two inks: one peach, one vintage rose.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo and I glue all the embellishments with a 3D gel. To finish the layout I added some Art Stone and microbeads.

For this layout I also used some different flowers then I normally do the white ones are by 49 and Market and the other from a different brand. This layout consists out of three layers and I used the green and blue shades again I really love that color combination. to fill up my flower clusters I also added some pine cones and some die leaves.

Welcome!
Kerstin is back to share with you a new layout inspiration with a wintery feeling.

I used the paper collection ‘Joyous winterdays’ from Maja Design, because
I was inspired from the story of this wonderful paper sheet ‘Snowball fight’.

Have you seen this little boy at the lower right edge ? !
Yes it’s wintertime, the first snow is being celebrated immensely,

enjoying building a snowman, ice-skating or having a funny snowball fight.

Always a pleasure and not only for children 🙂
