Today an ‘Out off the page’ project in vintage style, it’s a triptych with wintry feeling.
As I saw the wonderful new collection papers ‘Joyous winterdays’ I was inspired to create a new home decor project for christmas as little gift for a good friend.
used Maja Design papers
other used materials
modelling clay white, Snow tex (DecoArt), Silikon mould ‘Icecycle’, Distress ink ‘Walnut stain’, clear stamp ‘Crackle’, chipboards (Scrap FX), cutting dies, Resin treasure window
How I made this
- I choose background paper ‘Frost’ and cut out all three MDF pieces
- then I glued the paper with Decoupage Glue (DecoArt) on it
- I connected the three pieces and used the paper distresser tool for the edges, it gives an beautiful altered effect
- then i chose two motives from this new amazing Christmas/ Wintercollection and cut out – the sweet snowmen and little boy
- icecycles were made with white modeling clay and a mould
- to complete the background, I added Distress Ink ‘Walnut stain’ with a little bit water for some running effects, it will give you a worned altered look
- I used the ‘Blizzard’ paper, textured paper (leftovers from a wallpaper) and a craft paper for cutting dies – trees, lantern, winter leaves and snowflakes
- glued all also embellishments with a transparent adhesive medium
- create the snow effect with Snow tex (DecoArt)
some close up’s
This project was so much fun to create and I love the scene that you can build up, using all the beautiful background papers from Maja Design.
And if you wonder why the little boy is suddenly blue now, even though he is on the original green, it was very cold in the snow 😉 … ?
yes, you can change the color of these papers later, for example with alcohol markers
Many thanks for your visit!
Enjoy your weekend!
Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today
With Christmas coming closer and closer, I think it’s a good moment to start some serious Christmas cardmaking 😉 For my today’s post I created two cards, using the latest Joyous Winterdays collection and the traditional holiday red and green palette:
Both my cards feature a manger scene chipboard pieces. In the first card I chose darker red and green flourish patterns layered upon light paper for contrast:
I covered the chipboard piece with crackle accents and decorated it with die-cut leaves and snowflakes, a petaloo flower, tiny pom-poms and crystals and an acrylic angel button:
In the other card I created a shadowbox frame for the chipboard piece, but as the card is to be mailed, I kept it just barely raised:
I covered the chipboard manger with glitter and decorated with a mulberry flower, large crystal that looks like frozen ice, and some die cuts:
I really love how easy it is to get a vintage, shabby look for your projects with Maja papers! Just perfect for traditional Christmas cards
And here’s what I used to make my cards:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Magnolia, Impression Obsession, Sizzix, Joy!; holly punch: Woodware; flowers: Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Wycinanka; glitter: Ranger; pom-poms, button: my stash.
I do hope you find some inspiration for your Christmas cards
See you soon!
Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to present two cards. One is for the Wedding and the other for a Birthday. Floral, pastel colours with quite few layers. Take a look, please :
To create these cards I have used the Vintage Summer Basics Collection. It is really universal collection.
I don’t know why but I stop to use paper flowers recently.It will change … I’m pretty sure but for now I will enjoy the simplicity of my projects
Hope you like my project. If you are wondering about used materials here is the list : chipboard – Scrapiniec, digital graphic – Digital Paper and the paper : Maja Design
Hello our blog fans Some of you probably have seen my card with the funny picture “How to Merry a Millionaire” ? Inspired by Maja Nowak – and her girlish card with the Denim&Friends Collection I decided to make another funny card. Perfect for a Hen Party Here is my proposal :
I just love to make funny, layered cards without the flowers recently. Using metal dies to cut some add-ons. Adding chipboards from Scrapiniec, laces and string. Not much needed to gain a really spectacular result.
This collection is such an universal ! Making one project I already got a thousands of another ideas how can I use this paper ! Sound weird ? Let’s try to use it once and you will understand what I’m taking about. Hope you will like my project.
Thank’s for reading this post. Many thanks for each comment and reaction. It’s a pleasure to create something for you. Big pleasure. Hugs, Paulina.
