Hi there! First of all I would like to congratulate the Norwegian people with their National Day today! Happy 17. th of May! We will go for a parade in the streets with our national costumes, waving the flags and shout out hurrays. And the children get to eat as much ice cream as they can manage:)

I have made a birthday card for you today, with the beautiful Sofiero papers.

Sofiero-P1

The letters and numbers are cut out with a word die from Sizzix.

The image is from Magnolia and I have coloured it with Distress Inks.  I have stamped the image and text with Memento-Rich Cocoa. I have melted some FranTage around the image and added Liquid Pearls. On the flowers I have added Crackle Accent. The text is from Stempelglede.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the dies used are DooHickeys from Magnolia. I have inked all the edges with Distress Ink pad – Walnut Stain. And they are sewed on my sewing machine.

Gift envelope for a birthday boy

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. My son is getting older and is being invited to birthday parties more often. This time around we were asked to give a gift card to the toy shop as a present. So of course I wanted to pack it nicely. I coloured in the image that suits the papers and the boyish colors (LOTV image with prismacolor pencils) and then created this envelope.

The part with the boy is sliding and then you can open the envelope.

Good morning, Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today :)

I’m often asked to make some cards to order – and today I have two birthday cards to share. The first one is for a man who loves jazz:

mdjazz

I used my all-time favourite Vintage Romance collection because of the handsome guy image and for me classic jazz is those handsome guys in smart suits 😉 Although other images in the collection are rather referring to cars, I still used a car advert that I partly covered to reveal only the club name – sounds jazzy enough to me 😉

mdjazz1

As I said, the collection doesn’t have any music motives, but I used stamps and washi tape to add some tunes and the piano keyboard, and then a chipboard saxophone to match the card theme:

mdjazz2

I cut some tags from paper scraps and made a music record from cardstock:

mdjazz3

And so I made this romantic collection fit into a jazz theme :)

The other card is a complete change of theme :) It’s the first birthday card for a cute little lady:

md1bday

For this one I used the refreshed Sofiero collection as I chose a soft pink and green palette. I’m so happy to be able to layer the Monochrome papers and not to cover beautiful patterns! Plus, I didn’t need to search for matching colours :)

md1bday1

I added some little flowers and stamped and die-cut the sentiment, also using the Monochrome paper:

md1bday2

I stamped and coloured the girl image in matching colours:

md1bday3

But there’s some more to the card: I included the girl’s name too and made the card into an easel form:

md1bday4

I really like the way the soft colours and delicate flower pattern go together with glitter and the stamp!

 

Here’s what I used to make them:

Other: stamps: Nellie Snellen, Gstamps, Lemonade; dies: Spellbinders, Crealies, Memory Box; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Anemone.

 

And which card do you like more? :)

May your day be special

Hi dear Maja fans! I am back with a romantic birthday card today. I just love the flowery papers from Maja Design and the Vintage Romance collection. And here I have used some:)

Vintage-Romance-P

I will show you the papers used at the end of this post.

The image is from Magnolia, and I have coloured her with Distress Ink, re-inkers and markers. I try to use colours that fit the papers used.

Some homemade flowers together with roses from WOC. The flowers are cut out from crepe paper with some dies.

Hi all wonderful Maja-fans!  I went to a birthday party last weekend, and can you belive…?? The lady of honor became 95 years old. An she is still living in her own house. I wanted to make her a nice card, and here it is. I have used three pattern papers from the gorgeous collecton Summertime.

Summertime-P

I have tried to paint the image in the same colours as in the papers. The image is from Stempelglede and the collection Vintage garden. I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers. For the red colour I have used Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot. I have also added Crackle Accents on some of the flowers.

IMG_4841

The small flowers are punched out from a Retro flower punch, small. I have inked the edges with Distress pad, Walnut Stain. and added Stickles, Star Dust. In the middel I have added Licquid pearls.

The numbers are cut out from a Sizzix die, and I have added Fran-tage, Shabby White. I have also added Fran-tage around the image, on the edges.

Some birthday tags and the tassels made with  Magnolia DooHickey dies (vol 5).

I have put some Sisal grass behind the flowers.
