Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

Mother’s Day is celebrated throughout the world, though on various days. In Poland the celebration comes on May 26th, so it’s high time to prepare some handmade cards for the occasion πŸ™‚

I made the card using our latest collection, Everyday Life – despite the name it’s perfect for special days too πŸ™‚

In the first card I used mini flowers patterns for the background and added a chipboard frame and some lace. On top of that background I put images cut out of one of the elements sheets, added gold thread andΒ  a chipboard sentiment that I coloured with markers into the ombre effect. I also covered the heart image with glitter:

For the second card I chose the beautiful rose-patterned paper and applied a heart pattern using a stencil and modeling paste. Then I filled the heart with mini roses in colours that matched the paper palette. Then I attached the same chipboard sentiment as in the previous card, but this time I only covered it with opalescent glitter, I completed the design with delicate lace and string bows:

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard pieces, stencil, paste: Agateria, lace: my stash.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

Probably most of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland it’s on the 26th of May, so I’m still waiting πŸ˜‰ And being in the celebration mood I created a shadowbox frame that would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift:

The base for my shadowbox is a half of the box of certain purple pralines πŸ˜‰ I first attached chain and a tassel with brads before I covered the whole frame with Denim&Girls papers:

I layered the papers in the background and hand cut some decorative tags:

Other embellishments include a large rose, some acrylic gems, metal and chipboard pieces. I also stamped, coloured, cut out and arranged a layered magnolia flowers clusters:

I’m really happy how this frame turned out, and how Maja papers provided a perfect background for this beautiful photo. I didn’t use a ton of embellishments, but arranging them in dimensional layers resulted in a rich and bold design.

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard and stamps: Agateria; metal pieces: Retro Craft Shop; gems, sequins: my stash.

 

I hope all the moms in the world have had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

See you soon!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

In many countries Mother’s Day was already celebrated, but in Poland it comes on May 26th, so just in two days πŸ™‚ And since my getting married I have two moms, I made two cards for the occasion, using the latest collection by Maja Design, Denim & Girls:

For the foccal points of my cards I chose images from the Girls In Jeans sheet. As jeans and laces are totally my thing πŸ˜‰ I thought the images would represent me giving flowers to my moms.

In one card I stamped and embossed the sentiment diretly onto the image piece and then mounted it over layered papers and added some mini roses and a filigree chipboard flourish:

As I like adding tiny elements to my projects, I cut out a star tag from the signature strip and accented it with glitter:

In the other card I mimicked the jeans-lace layers from the image, using paper and cotton lace, and then added a resin heart filled with miniroses. Glitter and some bling add the glamour touch:

I hope my moms would like the cards – do you? πŸ™‚

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec; bling, string, lace – my stash.

So that’s all for today, thank you for visiting – and happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there!

Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today πŸ™‚

I know many of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland this holiday comes on May 26th. And so for my today’s post I have two simple shabby chic cards for moms πŸ™‚

mdmom

Both are made using the Sofiero collection – soft, delicate colours and beautiful designs are simply perfect for the occasion. And so in the first card I layered sand-coloured papers in the background and placed two cut-out images on top. Then I added the sentiment in a decorative die frame and some mini roses:

I slightly distressed the edges of papers to give them a more shabby look. Small pearls are a cherry on top πŸ˜‰

For the background of the other card I embossed the Monochromes white/sand paper to add some texture:

Then I placed a flowery tag on top onto which I stamped my sentiment. I put a decorative chipboard frame on top so that the sentiment pops out πŸ™‚

I finished my card off with a small flower cluster:

Though simple, the cards still were a kind of a challenge for me: I had to make them flat enough to go into envelopes to be mailed πŸ™‚ With my love for dimension that was sooo hard! πŸ™‚

And here’s what I used:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; stamps: Lemonade; dies: Sizzix; brads: Craftmania; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon, string: my stash.

 

Have a nice day and see you soon!
