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.

Hi there Maja fans! I hope you have had a wonderful May so far! Here the weather is so nice, it has been sunny and warm. So lovely! As you might know, I live in the western part of Norway where it is raining all the time, so a bit sun is much needed:) Ok, I will tell you a bit about my card. I made it for my cousin’s baby, by the beautiful name Bjørk.

Sofiero-K

I have used papers fom the new Sofiero collection, and also added two postmarks with images from the Vintage Baby collection. I have used a postmark stamp on them from Stempelglede with white embossing powder.

The image is from Magnolia, and the text is from Stempelglede. The flowers are from WOC and Kort og Godt.

Hi there! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Here comes a card I have made both for Maja Design and Magnolia. I have will also show you how I made the moon and the pop-up effect.

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

Vintage-Baby-P

For this project I have used the beautiful Vintage Spring Basics collection and the Vintage Baby collection. Now to the little step by step:

1

I started with making the moon. First I used my compasses. I made a circle with a diameter of 16 cm. Then I drew the rest of it by hand like this. I used hard cardboard for this.

2

Then I painted the edges of the moon with white Gesso.

3

Then I drew the moon on some Maja Design pattern papers (two times, for the front and the back).

4

Then I inked the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain.

5

Place the baby on the moon.

6

Fold a paper strip like a rectangle and fasten it like this. Make two so that the moon will have a good grip inside the card. (You can see this better on the finished card)

7

To decorate the card, I have cut out some shapes from Maja papers: heart background, celebration, star tag, (flag and) cloud, castle. The dies are Magnolia DooHickeys.

I will now show you some details of the finished card, and how the pop-up looks like.

Hello our blog fans 😉 Time flies, definitely  ! It is the last moment to create some card for Easter :) Hope you have found some time to do it already … I need to hurry up …. Here are my first two card for this occasion :

DSC_6893   I started to create my project by choosing the paper and add-ons. My idea was to create a little bit unsual  cards – that’s why you will not find Easter eggs there :)

EasterFor the base I used the “Mono Straw Wheat” from Monochromes  Collection. These papers fits perfectly to the other collections!  Next one was Vintage Spring Basics with the amazing pastel and floral patterns.

EasterEasterDSC_6884Hope you will like my project. I would like to wish all of you HAPPY EASTER that is filled with plenty of love and happiness :*
