Hello Maja design fans,
Happy Monday,for today’s post i made a layered monochromatic card.I so loved this soft turquoise shades,i have used papers from “Vintage spring basics” and “Vintage summer basics”.I have used two sheets front and back and layered theme alternately.All the die cuts are also cut from pattern papers.
The flowers are handmade using foamiran sheets,i generally dont make flowers but this is super easy and look so gorgeous(isn’t it?).I have used some chipboard designs and laces amongst the layers.All the layers and die cuts are given a coat of white gesso using dry brush to give a weathered look.
I have also splattered some white paint and added few butterflies to finish off.More close ups for you..
Maja papers used: 1934 , 1934 bs , 6th of march , 6th of march bs
Thank you for stopping by.
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 😉 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!
Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to present two cards. One is for the Wedding and the other for a Birthday. Floral, pastel colours with quite few layers. Take a look, please :
To create these cards I have used the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. It is really universal collection.
I don’t know why but I stop to use paper flowers recently.It will change … I’m pretty sure but for now I will enjoy the simplicity of my projects 🙂
Hope you like my project. If you are wondering about used materials here is the list : chipboard – Scrapiniec, digital graphic – Digital Paper and the paper : Maja Design
Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!
Did you celebrate the World Cardmaking Day last Saturday? I did, and among the cards I made I couldn’t miss using Maja papers! 🙂 And here it is:
But this time I selected the “plain” sides of sheets, as sometimes I like them even more than the patterned ones 😉 I layered two sheets from the Vintage Summer Basics and I simply LOVE how this 1946 sheet gives the perfect pastel shabby background with those white lines! I’m a rather poor media user and I would never ever brush the background myself to get those lines 😀
I added the wreath pattern using a stencil and white texture paste, then mounted the embossed sentiment circle in the centre and surrounded it with flowers. Then I added a lace bow and some bling 🙂
And I really love how dimensional it turned out!
So sometimes those plain papers are as gorgeous as petterned sheets when it comes to a perfect background, don’t you think?
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Mono Denim – Off white bs
Other: stencil: Agateria; stamp: Lemonade: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; lace, bling: my stash.
Thank you for visiting today and see you later!
