Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a layout featuring the Sofiero paper collection. I chose a photo of my family: my grandmother, my father, my aunt and unfortunately I’m not sure who the other two are.

I primed the background with clear gesso. While it was drying, I cut a few papers from the Vintage Romance 6×6 pad that I glued on the background. Then I added a thin layer of white gesso.

I added a design with a stencil and different pastes: clear crackle, white crackle, and white stone. When dry, I added some color with Iris Potion Sparks paint that I watered down.

I die-cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the vine with Raven Sparks and the leaves with Twinkling H2Os. Then I covered them with the Antique Brillance Amethyst Magic. I added some wax on the background too to add a vintage look.

I colored some flowers with a spray made of Primary Element and water. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with an Archival ink and with the Raven Sparks. I added a little bird house that I colored with the wax too.

To finish the layout I added some micro beads.

Hello my friends!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout using papers from the beautiful ”Vintage Romance” collection.

A mysterious layout this time that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Closer 1

For my background, I used the ”Champagne” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Love Poetry” and the ”Ephemera cards” papers.

Closer 2

I primed the background with clear gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Bayou Boogie Gold”, ”Dark Chocolate Truffle” and ”Cocoa Bean Copper” to give some color.

Closer 3

I heat embossed the ”Madelines flourish frame” chipboard with ”Bratwurst Brown” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The title was also embossed first with the ”Bratwurst Brown” and then with the ”Cafe au Lait” powder. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

Closer 4

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with the sprays I used before.

Faux Envelope Cards Revisited ;)

Good morning, Maja fans, welcome to the blog today :)

While visiting some craft company blogs I sometimes come across this “revisiting” idea. DT members return to old collections and make new projects with them. And so I decided to use the concept, and “revisit” one of my older projects: faux envelope cards. I also did a tutorial on them back in June (you can find it here). I also used the same collection, my favourite Vintage Romance :)

I think this is just a perfect collection for wedding cards! The first card is more vintage in style, and I kept the ivory-green colour palette, as if the colours faded with time :)

mdspring1

I didn’t use any sentiment, the image is pretty clear :) I added a bouquet of roses and some pretty crystal flourishes:

mdspring2

Beautiful pearl brads and vintage seam ribbon complete the look:

The second card is more colourful as I followed the palette of the printed flowers:

mdspring4

The design is pretty much the same, only instead of an image I added a decorative chipboard sentiment:

mdspring5

I just love how the printed flowers blend with the dimensional ones!

mdspring6

And here are the supplies I used:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Magnolia; chipboard: Scrapiniec; brads: Craftmania; bling: Prima.

 

And how about you? Do you sometimes “revisit” your previous projects and give them a go again? :)

Hi dear Maja fans! I am back with a romantic birthday card today. I just love the flowery papers from Maja Design and the Vintage Romance collection. And here I have used some:)

I will show you the papers used at the end of this post.

The image is from Magnolia, and I have coloured her with Distress Ink, re-inkers and markers. I try to use colours that fit the papers used.

Some homemade flowers together with roses from WOC. The flowers are cut out from crepe paper with some dies.

Here comes some closeups.

I love the way all the papers in the collection fit so well together.

Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout using papers from the beautiful ”Vintage Romance” collection.

When I found on Pinterest that beautiful photo I wanted to create a romantic layout.  And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close Up 1

For my background, I used the ”Love Notes” paper and I made some layers on it with some torn pieces from the ”She’s my Lady” and the ”Passion” papers.

Close up 2

I primed the background with clear gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Cotton Candy Pink”, ”Salt Water Taffy” and ”Cheshire Cat Cherry” to give some color.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the title and the chipboard pieces from the ”Moroccan Panel” with  ”Gilded Burgundy Brass” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The ”Leafy Silhouettes” chipboards were also embossed with ”Cafe au Lait”. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

Close up 4

To finish, I added some licorice glass beads and made some splatters with the sprays I used before.

Papers used:

That’s all for today, my friends!
