Masculine Cards with Flowers

Masculine Card with flowers?  Absolutely!

Time to share some favorites - Spellbinders combined with Maja Design papers.    This card features the beautiful masculine side of the Maja Design Celebration collection.  

The vision for this card was to create a birthday gift effect on the face of the card but in a subtle way and yet keep it on the masculine side. 

In addition to the gorgeous patterned papers from the  Maja Design Celebration collection, I also used a sheet from the companion monochrome collection, Shades of Celebration
 These are the papers I used from both the 12x12 collection:
 Glamour #964
Congratulations #975
I added a detailed frame using Spellbinders die called Tallulah Frill Layering Frame from the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken 

I also created custom flowers using a versatile fun die from Spellbinders and Marisa Job - Spellbinders Textured Flowers -Timeless Heart Collection by Marisa Job.

Ahhhh, now for the masculine flowers...
Custom flowers are easy to create and perfect to match your paper collections.  I simply added black ink to the tips of my flowers for accent and to make them really pop against the card.  I think the black accents keep them grounded toward the masculine side. 

I also added a black bead in the center of my flowers.  
The Spellbinders Chantilly Paper Lace Collection  is one of the many from the Amazing Paper Grace Collections designed by Becca Feeken

Bloom Cards for March with Maja design and Spellbinders

It's March and time to start thinking of spring blooms. 

Maja Design can help get you in the mood for spring with some gorgeous delicate prints from the new collection, Celebration  This stunning new collection was created to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Maja Design..  Congratulations.  May you have many more years of success. 

In addition to the patterned papers, Maja Design has also created a Monochrome collection, called Shades of Celebration,  consisting of  12x12 solids that perfectly matches the Celebration collection.  

I've used the Celebration sheet called Jubilee as the base of my card.  The paper sample is shown above.  It's simply gorgeous.

 I also used a piece from the Monochrome collection to make the Spellbinders,  diecut pop.  It's a dramatic, lovely effect.  The die is called, Spellbinders Hannah Elise Frame -  Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken.

St Patricks Day Cards

I'm here with you today bringing some festive St Patrick's Day cards.  St. Patrick's Day is not just for the Irish...I'm not Irish at all.  But I sure love the festivities.  Any holiday that can bring folks together in joyous celebration is a beautiful day.  

These cards combine Spellbinders dies and Creative Embellishments fun chipboard pieces for St. Patrick's Day.  There's still time to get those cards made.  
I used the following pieces on my cards: 

I love this card because I can save this and send anytime.  I left the Circle Doodle Frames (chipboard)
untreated, straight from the package.  
The wood veneer Shamrock sits on the top left section of the wreath. I added a bit of mossy olive ink.  
Finally, the clover cluster was painted white, then simply inked with olive and brown inks.  
While I used the small chipboard word "luck"  as  a prop in the picture below,  here's the link to the Small Sentiment Words. They are perfectly sized for cards and tags.

I used the chipboard clover cluster here as well, nestled inside a decorative diecut frame from SpellbindersTallulah Frill Layering Frame - Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken.  

 I used the same technique as in the above card - painted white, then simply inked with olive and brown inks.  I added a few accent mini gold balls. 

Short on time?  Keep it simple.  
Use the chipboard and veneer as the focal point on your cards.   
 I love the simplicity of the  wood veneer Shamrock .  I left it natural. 
While there is not a lot to the last card, keep in mind sometimes you just need to get a card made.
