Hi everyone! Here I am back with another confirmand card using the wonderful new papers from Maja Design.

The lovely image is from the diecut sheet.

Some tassels made with Maja papers and a die from Magnolia.

Gorgeous flowers from Petaloo, with some sissal grass behind.

The text die is from Papirdesign.

Under you can see the back of the Lollipop card. Here is a place to write a greeting on. The text is from Stempelglede. I sew with a sewing machine around the papers.

A cute bow made with Maja papers and a Magnolia die.

Hi everyone! I am sure you are as excited as me about the new Maja papers. They are just amazing, and I have started using them already.

First up I want to show you a lollipop card I made with two of the sheets from the collection. “You are a star” and “Amazing”.

Some details. Here you get a closer look of the sheet “You are a star”.

For the leaves I have used the Monochrome papers for this collection.

The image is from the sheet “Girls in Jeans”. And underneath the image you can spot “Amazing”.

Here is the back of the lollipop. Where you can write a greeting, and put some money in the small envelope.

Under I just wanted to show you a Magnolia card I made with the gorgeous papers.

 

 

 

And under I have made a lollipop for a Confirmand boy.

The papers are from the Summer Crush collection. And the image is from the Denim & Friends collection.

 

 

And you can see that the back is pretty the same as the other lollipop card.

And at last I want to show you the book card I made.

I have used wonderful the Denim & Friends collection.

I cut the tie out for hand, and have done some sewing.

To make it look like a book, I use water colour paper from Canson. And I fold it like an accordion.

 

 

Just some details. Here I have matched craft card stock and Maja papers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja blog today!

Two folder cards for you today!

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. Here in Norway the Spring is close, the snow is gone and the birds have started to sing in the mornings. I think Spring is my favorite time of the year. The days get longer, and the flowers germinate. Its time for a new fresh start! Here in Norway the Spring is also time for Confirmations. And I have had that in mind with these cards. Can you guess which Maja Design Collection I have used for my cards??

Yes of course, the lovely Vintage Spring Basics.

Here you see little Tilda from Magnolia sitting on some steps. She is resting, and maybe looking for something to photograph. I have masked the two stamps together. The lovely text is from Stempelglede. For my colouring I have used Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. I often stamp with Memento stamp pad, on the Langton Watercolour papers. My brushes are synthetic and I use size 0 and 000.

For the flowers I have used Foamiran. And some dies from Magnolia. I cut them out, blow on them with my heat gun, then curl them a bit, before I stretch the petals out again.

Inside the card I have made a paper strip to put some money behind. And a small card to write a greeting on.

Here is my second card. Made the same way as my first. And with the same flowers.

Here I have used the pink flower stamens. I have made a step by step of how I made the flowers:

 

Just another close up. The bow is made with Maja papers and a Magnolia die.

Here you can see that I have added Liquid pearls in Tilda’s hair, and around her.

Underneath the flowers I have put some Sisal grass. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here the inside of the card. With beautiful butterfly paper from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

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,

Hi everyone! Here I am back with a confirmand card using the lovely Summer Crush papers. With doilies and a straw.

It is Confirmand-time here in Strandebarm now. And here comes one of the cards I have made. I just love the images in the Summer Crush collection. And this is just so beautiful and dreamy. And a perfect match to the papers.

I have cut out the “Konfirmant” text with a die from Papirdesign using the Maja dotted paper.

The flowers are from Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts. I have places sissal grass behind them. And some cheese cloth behind the image.

 

And here is the back of the lollipop, to write a greeting on.

Here is the list of papers used:
