Jennifer Snyder here to present a pop-up twist card featuring two of my favorite product combinations – beautiful fun papers from Maja Design in Sweden and wonderful Creative Embellishments chipboard.

Since this card is a pop-up twist card, it’s a bit of a surprise when it’s opened.  Add on the chipboard and it’s a real birthday treat complete with birthday cupcake.

I have used  Maja Design’s “Life in the Country” collection on my card. The collection is bright and happy and feels like a sunny day.  That is exactly the feeling one should have when opening a birthday card.  Well that’s the feeling I like to have.
These are the papers I chose:
In My Flower Bed (both A&B side of paper)
Summer Kitchen (both A&B side of paper)
Strawberries with Ice

As I mentioned, this pop-up twist card offers some surprises.

 

 

I used a variety of chipboard and veneer pieces from Creative Embellishments.  I like to keep them simple by painting or inking so that they do not over take the beauty of the papers – they are only accents.
The pop-up twist die is from Karen Burniston’s die collection.
Thanks for stopping here today.

Jennifer Snyder here to present with a  get-well card made from Maja Design’s fabulous  Denim & Friends collection.

This collection is one of my favorites for layering.  The patterns and florals combined with the blues and soft browns in this collection make this versatile for both men’s and women’s cards.
These are the papers I used from the collection:
Summer Shirt
Stonewashed
Paisley
This is a closer look at the layers of the card as well as the sentiment.
I added a piece of fun foam under the sentiment piece to give a little volume and dimension.
The sentiment stamp is from JustRite Papercrafts.

Maja Design has introduced a solid collection to coordinate with the Denim & Friends collection.  It’s called Monochrome – Shades of Denim and it is a set of solid colors that are custom selected for the Denim & Friends papers.

One last view of the complete card.

 Have a wonderful day.

Jennifer Snyder here with a card made from Maja Design’s  fun and flirty Denim & Friends collection.
The colors and patterns in this collection look like they came straight from your favorite pair of old worn jeans and a comfortable shirt.
These are the papers I used from the collection:
Stonewashed
Floral -both A side and B side of paper
Summer Shirt
Aren’t the beautiful florals delicate and  “comfortable”?
Here is a close up of the front.
The stamped sentiment is from JustRite Stamps.

In case you did not know, the Denim & Friends collection has a companion collection of solid colored monochrome papers to perfectly coordinate and make any project look polished and complete.  The solid monochrome collection is called Shades of Denim.    It’s absolutely a must for those of us who love everything to be perfectly coordinated.

 
Here is just another perspective of the card.
I kept the embellishments clean on the card because I want the  paper and sentiment to be the focal points.

  Thanks for stopping here today.

 Thanks for stopping here today.
I’m Jennifer Snyder  and I would like to share a wedding card I made for my niece.
When I need gorgeous elegant paper, I reach for paper from Maja Design.
My niece is having an “end of summer’ wedding, so I decided to pick papers from
Vintage Summer Basics collection – with it’s wonderful array of blues, teals, pinks and creams.  These are the two papers I used from the collection:
1921
1923

 This card is a shaker card.  I filled the chipboard heart designs with light pink crystal gems.    The image below shows the dimension of the chipboard hearts from Creative Embellishments.

 

 

 Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting.

 Jennifer Snyder here sharing how much I adore the seaside collection by Maja Design called Life by the Sea.  I find this collection to be soothing, peaceful and calming.

 

These are the papers I used from Life by the Sea by Maja Design
Regatta (B side)
Bottle Message ( A and B side)
In order to give my card an extra pop of nautical fun, I added a chipboard heart net from Creative Embellishments and a flair button.  I think the embellishments complement the papers perfectly.

 

Here is one last image to show the dimension of the card.
 Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy crafting.
