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:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!

With love,

Merry Christmas

Hello Lenet here today and I bring you a…Christmascard.

I know a lot of you don’t want to think about any thing Christmassy right now but I’m in a Christmas mood all year long.

I’m a member of two facebook groups that have a Chrismascard challenge  , and for that I need to make two Christmas cards a month, I can share them but If I have the time I want to make  4 different ones . Two for each group. You can never have enough Christmascards

The Christmas collections of Maja are just to gorgeous for not using them , so I use them a lot. that means you will see more Christmas cards from me thru out the year.

This one is made with several leftovers from different Christmas collections. I just love to make bleu ones it gives that winter and snow feeling I love and always hope we have at that time.

 

Besides the papers I used spellbinder dies , summerfeelings doily die from studio light and the Tim Holtz mini snow flakes rosette die. I just love rosettes.

I hope you like the card I made for your inspiration hope to see you back next time and don’t forget to come back to see the amazing things the other Maja girls make for you

Hello out blog fans. Today I’m really late with the post. I totally forgot to show you my last card created for the mood board challenge. Have you seen it? In this inspiration, I would like to show you how universal are the Maja’s papers. I have used the Christmas Collection of paper to create completely no Christmas card. It’s a huge value of the papers!

I’m wondering if you are using the Christmas Collection due the yeat as well? If not – it’s good advice to try. Hope you will like my card. Hugs, Paulina

Hi everyone! Today I want to show you a card that got published in the December issue of Ett Trykk. The challenge was to use the blue and white colour combo. And what wasn’t more perfect than to use these gorgeous Maja-papers from the beautiful collection Joyous Winterdays. And for the sledge and trees I have used sheets from the Monochromes papers in the same collection.

The whole card is made with a Go Kreate die. The circles around the image of cute Tilda is made with Spellbinder dies. The rest of the dies are from Magnolia. Magnolia have so many various dies that fit perfect to make lovely scenes with. I hope you like my card.

As usual I have added several layers to build up the card.

For this card I have also made the flowers myself, with gorgeous Maja-papers and Magnolia dies. The paper is first cut out, then I have sprayed some water on to the flowers, and curled them up. Let them to dry, and then curled them back up again. In the middle I have put some flower stamens from Wild Orchid crafts. I have also added some paint, white Gesso, all over the place.

For the 3D star I have used the paper called Blizzard bs.

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

With love,
