Happy Birthday ~ Maja Design~

Hello everyone! Today and I am sharing a masculine card that I made for my brother (I am behind in my birthday cards as I have another birthday card to make!) I always struggle to make masculine cards and it takes me a while to create one. This one is a bit grungy/steampunk inspired.

I used the CreaDiem Collection as I was drawn to the muted tones of the papers. I also used foam tape to add definition to the layers. 

I used two Tim Holtz stamps, Simple Sayings and Odds and Ends as well as a memo pin. The steampunk clock is by Cheery Lynn. I also fussy cut a clock from Vintage Autumn Basics XVI papers to add to the centre of the clock as shown. I distressed the edges with walnut stain and black soot  distress inks. 

I usually machine stitch around the edges of my cards, but I used Bobunny’s stitches stamp on my card and tag instead. I love the distressed pattern of the stamp.

Life is very busy at the moment. Right now I am moving into a new house, hence I have been a little bit quiet. I have just about finished my school reports and I am still breathing!  Once I unpack and find my craft supplies a new home, I'll be back!

Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Frame ~ Maja Design

Hello everyone!  For my project today I have a frame to share with you. I created this frame for my classroom as I wanted to inspire my students as well as add something beautiful to the space. It’s always nice to have some home decor pieces in learning spaces. I bought an inexpensive frame and decorated it using papers from the limited edition Nyhavn Collection.

I used Heritage Harbour as my background and created the splatters using Prima Splatter stamps. I covered some Kaisercraft words with Historical Atmosphere and Like a Colourful Bouquet papers and inked the edges with Prima dark bark inks. To finish I painted the sides of the words with Kaisercraft mango paint.

I used some chipboard pieces and altered them by applying chalk inks and distress inks.

To add some colour, I added some flowers. I have had these Prima daisies in my stash for a while and I added some die cut leaves as well as a twine bow to add texture. I used La La Land open leaf flourish and Elizabeth Craft curvy leaf dies.

I repeated the flowers in the opposite corner but picked up on the orange from the letters. I have used quite a few Prima flowers and the same dies to create the leaves in the cluster. I adhered everything using Prima art basics soft matt’s my favourite adhesive at the moment!
