I'm in a blue mood.  
Yep, I've got the denim blues.  In this case, the blues are great to have especially when they involve the newest paper collection from Maja Design and the newest die release from Spellbinders.  It's enough to chase the blues away from anyone, but in this case I'm loving my blue mood.  

Can I talk about my blue mood?  
It's caused by a new collection from  Maja Design called, Denim & Friends and the coordinating set of solids called Maja Design - Monochrome Collection  Shades of Denim & Friends .   Gorgeous rich blue color ranges guaranteed to make anyone smile.

I wanted a graceful delicate card for an upcoming wedding.  The color palette for this wedding is  teal/seafoam so I picked out the perfectly matched papers and went to work creating from my heart.

Spellbloggers Summer Blog Hop Giveaway (presented by Spellbinders)



Spellblogger Giveaway Hop

  I'm Jennifer Snyder, one of the Spellbloggers for Spellbinders.  
Welcome to my blog and to our Spellblogger Hop.  
(Starts July 17 at 12:00 am MST and will end on July 18 at 11:59 pm MST)



When I was a child, the best summer vacations were the ones where we went to the ocean for a chance to hunt for shells, play in the warm sand, then cool off in the water.   I don't live near an ocean so those vacations were cherished.  I think it's part of why I love all things nautical and beachy.  It brings me back to those simple, peaceful times.  Ahhhh, those summer days seemed endless.  

Spellbinders wants your fun times to be endless as well. 
They are giving away three  Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machines  to celebrate our Spellbloggers Hop Giveaway Event.  


Scroll down through my blog and I'll tell you how you can qualify for a chance to win.  

 


Let me tell you a bit about my projects.  
I created two cards that  stem from those childhood summer days.  Both cards have the nautical or beachy feel to them.  

I used one of the gorgeous new releases from Spellbinders to create this card...


You might ask why I chose to use the delicate beautiful  Venise Lace Die  on a nautical beachy card. 
So very glad you asked.  
Let me show you why I think this is a perfect nautical die. 

The first thing I saw in this lovely die was the similarity to a photo I had taken several years ago of a shell with fishing net in the background.   The shapes of the die reminded me of that photo. 

Thus I was meant to use it as a nautical die...Actually what it means is there are multiple ways to use the Spellbinders dies.  It's all in the imagination.



I used the Shapeabilities  Isabella Frame Venice Lace by Becca Feeken die on this card paired with another recently released die that I simply adore:

Maja Design Mood Board July and August


This is the July and August Mood Board.  I created this card using the Sofiero collection from Maja Design.

The Mood Board is a monthly challenge that can be approached in so many ways.  You can use the colors as inspiration; the words, the images, or the sentiment  from the Mood Board collage.  
I picked the colors and the beautiful summer feel for my card.  

If you would like to play along with the Mood Board, you can find the rules right here.  

The Sofiero collection has a gorgeous vintage ephemera sheet which I used as the focal feature of the card.

My embellishment choices were kept delicate and soft as well in keeping with the feminine look of the rose ephemera card.  I added some lace trim, some Petaloo flowers and Martha Stewart's Medium Branch Punch .  This punch is always great to add as fillers to fill out any floral cluster.    

The feminine and frilly trim I used was from Prima - Memory Hardware - Grande Rosette Trim 

The flowers are:


These are the papers I selected for this card: 
Maja Design Sofiero Collection; Ephemera A & B sides of paper, Exuberance of Flowers in Bloom






I do hope you have some time to play along and create a piece to enter in the Maja Design Mood Board challenge.   Submit your creation by August 24th.   There are no limits to what you can send in!
Good luck.
