Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today
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
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 😉
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
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 With my love for dimension that was sooo hard!
Hi there! First of all I would like to congratulate the Norwegian people with their National Day today! Happy 17. th of May! We will go for a parade in the streets with our national costumes, waving the flags and shout out hurrays. And the children get to eat as much ice cream as they can manage:)
I have made a birthday card for you today, with the beautiful Sofiero papers.
The letters and numbers are cut out with a word die from Sizzix.
The image is from Magnolia and I have coloured it with Distress Inks. I have stamped the image and text with Memento-Rich Cocoa. I have melted some FranTage around the image and added Liquid Pearls. On the flowers I have added Crackle Accent. The text is from Stempelglede.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the dies used are DooHickeys from Magnolia. I have inked all the edges with Distress Ink pad – Walnut Stain. And they are sewed on my sewing machine.
Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design Blog!
It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout made with papers from two of my favourite collections, the ”Sofiero” and the ”Monochromes – shades of Sofiero”.
A soft romantic layout in blue and gold tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.
I used for my background the ”The magnificent Flowerstreet” paper from the ”Sofiero” collection and I made a die cut doily with the ”White/Sand” paper from the ”Monochromes – shades of Sofiero”.
I primed my background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Hydrangea Blue”.
I heat embossed the ”Ada’s Flourishes” 2Crafty chipboard with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. The title was also embossed with the ”Madonna Rabe Blue” powder. The title chipboards I used are 13arts and all the flowers and embellishments are Prima Marketing.
To finish, I added some copper micro beads with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.
Smell the roses while you walk through The Rose Paths of Sofiero… I love to read description of the papers… Sofiero is my favourite lately. It’s a time of the year when we are creating wedding cards and for sure I will use Sofiero collection combine with Monochrome more often.
I moved to Norway for a while and didn’t take many scrapbooking stuff. I had to choose the most useful tools, chipboards, dies, media and add-ons. It was not easy desicion but I think I did a good job. I will check it out during my creating project this summer. Today’s card are full of small layers. I love to pluck the paper and then add the layers one by one. Between each I try to add small details
It’s good to know what kind of style we like and what we expect in the final result. My plan was to have cards in a shabby chic style. I think I did it – just added a little bit of my style too.
Chipboards from Scrapiniec fits here perfectly! They are super white and really high quality. Small roses and the pictures in the background are cut from the die cut sheet.
You don’t need to have many thing to create. Paper is the most important and the rest is just you creativity. Hope you like my project. Hugs, Paulina
