Warm and Rustic - Celebration Easel card and a Tag

Hello everyone, I am so happy to have you here on my blog .
Today I am sharing TWO projects 
A richly colored easel card and a TAG 
which I created with the
 Walking in the Forest Collection and the Vintage Autumn basics Collection 
for Maja Design . 
We are having our winter season here in Australia 
and I wanted to create something warm and bright . 
I have chosen a combination of Denim blue and Deep Burnt Orange.
I stacked my elements combining Maja papers with diecut leaves, and various other diecut shapes.
 together with some chipboard twigs .
  I kept with the warm rusty theme and colored my chipboard in Rusty ink .
 I feel the orange and blue are a Perfect marriage....
These blues flowed together beautifully and I added some metal buttons each side of my cluster .

inside view of my card. 
I stamped with my fave word stamp - CELEBRATE !
and added an inked swirly chippie to hold the easel section in place .

I really love this color combination, I rarely use orange in my work, 
but this collection 
has made me think differently ..

Now for my second project .
Recently Some friends of ours had a 'HOUSE WARMING' party
I created this TAG to go with a gift
No. 28 

This Tag has a foundation of chipboard, to create a sturdy base.
I have one at home which is displayed on our kitchen dresser
this tag is adorned with DUSTY ATTIC chipboard .
French Flourish 2pk :DA0273
Mini Number grid : DA1073
Chevron Panel large : DA1066
Main Street small set :DA0989
Dusty in Colour Clear Crackle Varnish: DA0900
I added their house  number 28
to make it personal to them . 

Maja Design materials used
