Hi everyone! I hope you and your families are ok in this strange and unreal days. We are staying positive and like everyone else, we can’t wait till this is over. Strangley enough this situation is taking more energy from me than I thought, and I haven’t manage to make many cards. But as I have some dates to post here on the blog, I have made this Spring card with some gorgeous MajaDesign Vintage Spring Basics papers.

I have cut out the cute bird house with some yellow Spring papers. The white you see here and there is white Gesso that I have painted with a flat broad brush.

Also the small butterflies are cut out from the gorgeous papers. There are sheets in the collection that are covered with butterflies, that you can cut our and put them on your creations.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The image is and many of the dies are from Magnolia. I have painted the image with Distress Ink re-inkers and Markers. I use from 2-3 hours painting one image. So it is not done in a sweep!

I have painted the image in pink, but I didn’t want to make a pink card. So I have toned it a bit down, using more yellow and beige papers from the Vintage Spring Basics collection. Only the feathers I have cut out are pink.

I hope you like my card! Thank you for visiting the MajaDesign blog today.

With love,

Vintage window birdhouse

Hi everyone! It’s Camilla here again with a card I made with the lovely papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

Here I have made a window with a birdhouse inside. The dies used are from Magnolia.

Here you can see a close up of how the birdhouse is built up.

Just love working with these beautiful Maja papers. As you can see I have added Fran-tage here and there.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Pop up card!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all fine! I am having my Easter Holiday now, and the weather is so lovely, sun and warmer day by day. Therefor I wanted to show you a pop up card I made with the gorgeous spring papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

Perfect papers for any Spring card!

This cute image is from Magnolia. And I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I think this image is my favorite one.

Here are two hedgehogs playing around.

Here from the side you can see how I have built up the card.

A close up.

And here the card when you close it. I have many layers of papers, so it is quite thick. Hope you like it, and I wish you a wonderful Easter!

With love,

Spring Cards with Elena

Hello Maja Friends,

This Spring is totally great, so war, so sunny, so happy to feel its smell.

I love mixing the collections and this time is not an exception, so again I played with Vintage Basics – Summer and Spring

 

Moreover I took the color sprays and the modelling paste I have in my stash and played a bit on my background, it has been a long since I practiced it last time.

And adding the flowers was the most delightful moment.

But paper layers is primary step for me.

 

Have a wonderful week end.

Hello!

I was inspired to create a new springtime layout in a romantic vintage style.

I love the soft colours in spring, nature awakens from its winter sleep, the sun becomes more beautiful from day to day, the best time to spend more time outdoors again.

I also remember our childhood days when there were no computers to sit in front of for hours.

I thought of blossoming cherry trees when the petals fell like snow.

As background I used the backside of the 4th of May.

Then I tored the 10th of May into several stripes and stuck them on top of each other.

 

some close up’s

I found the idea of using these calendar pages as layers under the photo very suitable and exciting.

 

 

 

 As in every collection there is also a page to cut out with different tags.

 As a special highlight I added the cut out little girl in the lower right corner

 and created a deep effect with foam pads.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy sunday!
