Here comes a Confirmand card I made to my friends son. And I have used papers and image from the Summer Crush collection for this one. I think the papers have really sharp and cool colours, which fits sporty young people ūüôā It is my son (three years) who is holding the card on the photo above.


Here comes some more pictures of the lollipop card:


The lollipop cards ar fun to make, and they are faster to make than my ordinary cards. Here comes a closeup.


Tags from Magnolia with texts from Stempelglede.


The text #konfirmant is written on my computer and printed out. I have used my sewing machine and sewed the paper edges. They are also inked with Distress ink – reinkers.

Hi there! How are you? Have you seen the new edition of the Sofiero papers? They even comes with monocromes papers. For my card I have used this gorgeous collection.


I have coloured up Tilda (Magnolia) here with some yellow/greenish colours. As I wanted the paper bag to have a fresh, springlike touch. The Sofiero papers are perfect for any romantic Spring card.


The clipboard frame around the image is from Wycinanka, called Apple bloss. I have put it up on 3D foam.


For the text I have used gold embossing, and it is from Stempelglede “Dear Confirmand”. I have fastened it to a paperstraw.


Here is a closer look.


On the left side I have put some lovely Ephemera cards, which is cut out.


Here is a list of the papers used:

Hi there! Its me again with a couple of lollipop cards. I am so enjoying making them, and the lovely papers from the Summer Crush collection is perfect for fun confirmand cards. I love the relaxing look they have.


The main image I  have used is from a sheet called Snapshots.  They are great for any occation.


On the back of the lollipop card I have put on a paper to write a greeting on. The text stamp is from Stempelglede.


Here you see the card laying from the side. The cute flowers are from WOC. And the bow is made with a DooHickey die from Magnolia. I have sewed all the papers, and inked the edges with Distress Ink pad-Walnut Stain. The post mark stamp is from Kort og Godt’s confirmand stamp collection. I have also added cheese cloth and doilies. The small texts are written on my computer and printed out on water colour paper, 200g.


Here is another lollipop card I have made, also using a photo from Snapshots.


The back is similar to the first one. The bow is made with a sizzix die.


Here are the cool papers I have used:

A couple of book cards for boys

Hello there! And thank you for visiting our blog today. I was asked to make two confirmand cards for boys by an old friend of mine. Her son and his best friend¬†are confirmands this spring. I looked for inspiration, and found it on Hilde‚Äės instagram. I made myself a template for the vest. And the bow is made¬†with a Sizzix die.


But as you can see, these are not some ordinary cards, they are book cards. Perfect to place small gifts or even money inside. I am in love with the new collection Vintage Romance, and of course I had to use the new papers on these cards aswell. The cards measures 16 x 11 x 2,5 cm.


The hashtag-texts are written on my computer and printed out.


I have glued on the buttons, and painted the papers and the buttons brifely with white gesso. All the papers edges are inked with Distress Ink-Walnut Stain and sewed. Under each pattern paper, I have bazzill-Vanilla. I like the thickness :)


Here are just some closeups of the cards. The bow is made with the cool paper called Honeymoon bs. So the paper is not only for weddings, also mainly boys and mens cards.


I really adore the patterns in the Maja Design papers, and the papers in the collections fits so well together.


The letters are cut out with dies from Sizzix. And I have added Crackle Accent onto them (then they get a more shabby 3D look).


For the inside I have made a pocket. and also put some hashtags and greetings inside of the folded sides. I have used watercolour paper 200g from Canson for the foldings.


A closeup:)


Here is the list of the papers I have used on my projects:

Hello! Hope you are fine. Last week I got the most wonderful papers in my mail!! And since it is time for confirmations here in Norway, I have made a confirmand card and a box to put it in.


Yes the papers are from the beautiful collection called Vintage Romance. I will show you the sheets I have used on my project further down in my posting. But here you see a glimpse of all the sheets ‚ô•‚ô•‚ô•


The image is from Saturated Canary, and is called Nevaeh. I have coloured her with Distress Ink, reinkers and Markers.


I have made the flowers myself. I have used a flower die from the DooHickey Club Magazine vol 4. Sprayed them with water, then curled them up. Leting them dry, before I painted them briefly with White Gesso.

I used these three lovely shees for my flowers.

Here you see a closeup of three of them. I have used white pearl stamens from WOC to put in the middle of the flowers.


For the leaves I have used the sheet To be with you. The greenish colour on the paper is perfect for any leaves and grass.

To be with you

The tags are cut out with the Magnolia die called Tilda Tag. I have used Kraft paper and the paper “Walk with me“. The text is from Stempelglede (Just a note). The ribbon is Vintage Seam binding from WOC, sprayed with water, curled and let to dry.


The box measures 16 x 16 cm.


I have used the same flowers on both projects. The letters on the box are made with a Sizzix die on white corrugated paper. Also the paper ribbon is made with a sizzix die.


Here is a closer look on the box. I have also decorated the sides. All papers are inked with Distress Ink – Walnut Stain, and sewed with my sewing machine.


A closeup, and you might see lots of glitter on her dress; and Liquid pearls in her hair and on the dress. The texts are written on my computer and printed out on Canson water colour paper 200g.


And here are the other beautiful papers used on my projets:

Thank you so much for visiting! Wish you a lovely day ‚ô•
