Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. I am back with some more Christmas inspiration for you today, another coffee filter card using the lovely Home for the Holidays collection.

Again I have tried to captured the brown and blue colours from the papers in my colouring. I use Distress ink, re-inkers and Markers for my colouring. I stamp on Bockingford watercolour paper and uses syntetic brushes size 0 and 00.

The stamps and dies are from Magnolia.

Under you see the simple card that I have put inside the coffee filter to write a Christmas greeting on. I have sewed with my sewing machine on all the paper edges.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

Christmas in July

Hi everyone! Are you ready for a Christmas post today? I have made some Christmas cards, and I will show you them in my next coming posts. I know it’s a bit early, but Christmas is coming before you know it 🙂 I have used some gorgeous papers from the collection called Home for the Holidays.

The card is actually made with a coffee filter. And I have decorated the sides with christmassy Maja papers.

The image is coloured with Distress Inks, to match the colours of the papers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the image and text, plus dies are from Magnolia. I have added some corrugated paper and cheese cloth behind the image. Behind the flowers I have added sisal gras.

Under you get a sneak peek of the cards to come 😉 I have made a serie with Home for the Holidays papers and coffee filters. Hope it inspires you!

Here are the papers used:

Hi everyone! Today I have three cards for you. So just a warning, this post will be a bit long. I have used the lovely papers from the Vintage Romance collection for all three cards. One of my favourite collection.

First up is this card.

All three images are coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. All to match the beautiful papers.

I have also used Maja Papers for the bird house and the stamps.

Behind the image I have cut out and placed some fences using Maja Papers. The flowers used are from Wild Orchid Crafts. All images and texts are from Magnolia. The shape of the card is made with a Go Kreate die. Other dies used are from Magnolia and Spellbinders (the ovals and circles).

Under here you can better see how the card is built up.

Now for my next card, more in blue tones.

For the flowers here I have used papers from the latest collection Denim & Girls.

I have also cut out the cute stamps from the Vintage Romance collection.

I have added some Fran-tage here and there, and also painted with white Gesso on the flowers and on the papers.

Some tags.

And here is my lates card.

Here with flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts.

A close up of the cute text.

And here a better view of how this card is built up.

How cute is this bird house made with Maja Papers?!!

And also some stamps made with the papers.

Hi everyone! I am back with a Summer card for you. I really hope you are enjoying the Summer. Here in Norway it is raining at the moment. And I wish for some sunny days.

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, on water colour paper. I use a paper called Bockingford 300g. It has a really smooth surface which is perfect for the Distresses. Can you spot which papers I have used? Yes, it is the lovely Denim & Girls papers!

I have cut out the flowers from those papers, ofcourse! Then using dies from Magnolia. I cut out the flowers, then I spray the paper with water, curl them up, and let them to dry. Then you get the crunchy look. I also paint over them with white Gesso.

Under you get a better look of how the card is built up.

And those gorgeous flowers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,
