Hello sweet Maja fans..

Today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration.

This time I bring you a card made with  the gorgeous papers of the vintage summer basics papers.

I love this collection , it’s certainly one of my favorite.

We had some very nice weather the last few days and everything in nature just exploded,  flowers everywhere and the air is filled with their sweet scent.

that inspired me to make this card bursting with and from flowers.

I used flowers from Wild orchid crafts , pins ,ribbon and brad are from my private stash.

Thank you very much for your visit, hope to see you again next time.

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring the Vintage Summer Basics collection.

May cards by Pascale B.

Both cards were made the same way, only the flowers are different. I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and the Camouflage Effect Paste set.

While the paste was drying, I die cut some leaves and stems in a watercolor paper. I die cut also a doily in the 1914 paper.

I colored the leaves, stems and some flowers with inks.

I added some color to the background before gluing all the embellishments: paper, sisal, stems, leaves, flowers, and doily.

To finish the cards, I added some microbeads.

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I have recently had the pleasure of making a sweet birthday card for a sweet girl.

 

I used mostly Denim & Friends papers as they matched the colours from the photo most perfectly. I added just a touch of the Vintage Summer pink in the background:

I have die-cut the embellishments from the papers, such as the cute heart banners and the number flag:

I stamped the cute beart with a heart, coloured it and paper-pieced the heart using a scrap of the Vintage Romance heart-patterned paper. I then added a small letter “O” for the girl’s name:

I also added plaid ribbon and some mini flowers and cute white pom-poms as the finishing touch.

And I think the card symbolises the 9-year-old girls quite accurately: still cute, but not too much 😉 What do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Craft Passion; stamp: ScrapBerry’s; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon: Rayher, pom-poms: my stash.

 

Before I bid you goodbye, I’d like to wish you a joyous Easter filled with the warmth of love and kindness 🙂

See you soon!

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Summer collection. I work with a photomontage I made.

La Dame de Brissac by Pascale B.

First, I primed the background with clear gesso. When done, I added some random stamping with different stamps and inks.

Next, I colored the background with two inks. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and white crackle paste that I let dry naturally to allow the cracks to appear.

When the paste was dried, I dry brushed the colored areas with white gesso to tone down the color. Next, I splattered some brown ink.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo before gluing all the embellishments.

Next, I added some mica flakes and microbeads.

Hello dear Maja fans ,

Today I bring you a dreamy layout  inspired by this months moodboard.

I love moodboards they are alway so inspiring , when I look at one the idea for a layout , card, minialbum or what ever will pop right into my mind.

For this layout i used the papers of two collections : vintage romance – Walk with me, for the base and Vintage Summer Basics -1922on top of it.

Besides that i used a lot of snippets that I placed underneath the picture.

 

The word Dream is a chippie from dusty attic and all the flowers from 49and market.

Thanks for visiting , hope I gave you some extra inspiration for the moodboard challenge.
