Hi everyone! I hope you all are fine. I am back with a late night card. This time I have made a frame card with the gorgeous papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. The paper you can spot the best on the card is called 1933 (with flowers).

I have painted this Sitting Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers, to match the papers. I think both colours and papers fit so well together.

Inside the frame I have cut out a bird house from the papersheet called 1925. The same paper I have used on the base on the card.

The text “Gratulerer” on top of the card is made from a die from Papirdesign, and means “Congratulations”.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have painted the flowers and papers with White Gesso, to give the card a more shabby look.

Under you can see how I have put the card together, as I have first made the frame, and then fasten it to the card.

Thats all from me tonight! Stay safe!

With love,

Sea View

Welcome dear creative Maja friends!

Today a mixed media layout in shabby chic style as memory on wonderful days

with our little sunshine ‘Filou’ by the sea.

I was inspired to create a maritim inspired layout,

where I used some wooden shapes (Calico Craft Parts), cutting dies,

origin beach sand and self-assembled shells :-).

used paper collections

 

as background paper Monochromes – Shades of Celebration – Vintage Teal

for cutting and embossing elements Mono Celebration Pearl

Denim-P

‘Streetware’

 Vintage-Summer-Basics-P

 

‘1905’

some close up’s 

 a photo cutout backed with three punched flags

  I used a 3D embossing folder ‘Flourish’ (Sizzix) as amazing waves

 behind the photo you can see a rising sun made with 3D Impresslits ‘Radiant’ (Sizzix)

 

 sand, shells, jute and some driftwood were all glued on with Heavy Gel Medium (DecoArt)

I wanted a weathered look for the four edges, so I used some remnants

 of punched out forms,

after gluing I painted over the edges of the pages

with a white thin crackle medium and palette knife.

Thanks for your visit!

Happy Summertime!

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. I have had a little break making cards, for a month or so, but now I am back, and have made some cards ready to show. Here is the first one, using beautiful papers from the Vintage Summer Basics.

I have also added some butterflies, which are from the Vintage Spring Basics collection – 6th of May. I have added Stickels, Star Dust on to them.

The leaves are cut out from a sheet called 1933.

The image are from Magnolia, and coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I think the distress colours fits all the Maja papers so well. The flowers, ribbons and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Some tags with suitable texts.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest card. I wish you a lovely day!

With love,

Hello Maja Fans,

 

Fall is here. My favorite season, but I am still reviewing the memories of this summer. So here is my Layout that I made with the shot taken last days of August.

I like spending the time at our country side house . The flowers and plants there inspire me for a long dull winter days, so I decided to create stamped poppies and colored them with Copics

I mixed different collections there and focused mostly on the smooth colors of green , red and yellow.

I also made some die cutting using Maja papers to create the leaves for my stamped flowers.

It was easy to make choosing the olive and chest nut tones for the die cuts.

Hope my today\s post will warm you if the weather is rainy and foggy .

 suitable to the sea inspired theme I punched out different circles as bubbles

I love it to use natural material, here some self-collected sea shells and some fabric leftovers
