Hi everyone! Here I am with some confirmand cards for boys. I have used the fantastic Denim & Friends Collection!

Firstly I have two cards. I have cut out the shape of the vest, and used a Sizzix die for the bow. The text stamp is from Ett Trykk.

As my pupils are all Confirmands this year, I made them all a card.

I have painted with some white gesso here and there.

 

I also made some lollipop cards for two of the boys.

 

 

Here you also see how I decorate the back of the lollipop cards.

 

And here is the last one I have for today, the book card. A colleague of mine gave it to her son.

I made the front like the cards.

 

 

 

 

And here is the inside of the book card.

I have used many of the Denim & Friends papers, and also the monochrome papers. Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog today!

With love,

The gift of friendship.

Hello sweet Maja fans..

Today it’s my turn again to give you some inspiration.

This time I bring you a card made with  the gorgeous papers of the vintage summer basics papers.

I love this collection , it’s certainly one of my favorite.

We had some very nice weather the last few days and everything in nature just exploded,  flowers everywhere and the air is filled with their sweet scent.

that inspired me to make this card bursting with and from flowers.

I used flowers from Wild orchid crafts , pins ,ribbon and brad are from my private stash.

Thank you very much for your visit, hope to see you again next time.

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Have you seen our May Moodboard? The palette is so beautiful that after creating my sample card I just couldn’t help making another 😉 And here’s my wedding card:

I used papers from the Summertime collection – this rose bouquets one is one of my most favourite Maja papers! Isn’t it just gorgeous? I chose it for my background and matted it with two other collection papers and arranged a scene of two birds nesting – to symbolise a new couple building their home together 🙂

Inspired by the roses in the bacgkround, I added a flower cluster around the chipboard sign:

I tied a guipure lace bow to add some lightness to my bouquet:

The card turned out pretty dimensional – and I love that!

Of course bulky cards need a box, and I decorated one with hot embossing on the top:

 

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; glitter: Ranger; art clay molds: Prosvet; art clay: Martha Stewart; lace: my stash.

 

I hope you will join us for the Moodboard challenge and share your projects using this gorgeous palette 🙂

See you!

Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring the Vintage Summer Basics collection.

May cards by Pascale B.

Both cards were made the same way, only the flowers are different. I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and the Camouflage Effect Paste set.

While the paste was drying, I die cut some leaves and stems in a watercolor paper. I die cut also a doily in the 1914 paper.

I colored the leaves, stems and some flowers with inks.

I added some color to the background before gluing all the embellishments: paper, sisal, stems, leaves, flowers, and doily.

To finish the cards, I added some microbeads.

Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you card in the box. First Communion is a ceremony in some Christian traditions during which a person first receives the Eucharist. Catholics believe this event to be very important and for this occasion godparents used to give some gifts. My today’s inspiration is a one of the ideas how we can pack small gift and make this moment really important for donee.  I bought a ready paper box and decorated with the paper from “Denim & Friends” Collection afterwards.. This set has a many color variations and this time I picked the light beige and turquoise shades. The chipboards came from Scrapiniec. In the end I added some flowers and splashes. Hope you will like my inspiration. Hugs, Pa Paulina
