Papertrey Ink – Very Merry

I love to play with new goodies and I LOVE this stamp set by Papertrey Ink. Using it in so many different colors, you will see !



Papertrey Ink – Christmas Wreath


I do not know how many Christmas cards I still need, but I have decided to make at least two in the same way. This saves time and makes fun with some small changes two different and yet almost equal cards to make. Ich weiss nicht wieviele Weihnachtskarten ich noch brauche, doch ich habe mich entschieden mindestens zwei in der gleichen Art und Weise zu machen. Das spart Zeit und macht Spass mit einigen kleinen Veränderungen zwei unterschiedliche und dennoch fast gleiche Karten zu machen. 


I´ve mixed and matched the Papertrey Ink “Wreath for all Seasons” and “Deck the Halls” Stamps Sets/Dies. I do not know why but I love Christmas wreaths. How about you ?  Ich habe o.g. Sets miteinander kombiniert. Ich weiss nicht warum aber ich liebe Weihnachtskränze – Du auch ?

Fröhliche Weihnachten

I once again used the “SU Top Note” after a long, long time. I have used the “Quilting Technique” for this card. Good to use scraps !


  • Supplies
  • Stamp: Inkystamps “Kurz und Knapp”

Stephanie is up with this week’s Make It Monday over at Nicole Heady´s blog and she shared her tips to create a pair of coordinating cards. Check out the Video here. I took the “Circle Symbols” set and made a belated birthday card and a christmas card. What a fun ! Stephanie ist diese Woche an der Reihe mit “Make it Monday” und sie hat uns ihre Tricks verraten um zwei zusammengehörige Karten zu gestalten. Ich habe das Circle Symbols Set genommen und eine nachträgliche Geburtstagskarte sowie eine Weihnachtskarte gestaltet. Was für ein Spass !

Kitty Bee Designs – Ho Ho Ho !

It´s never to early to start with Christmas Cards, right ? I won a Digi Stamp from my dear crafty friend Milka and i opted for this sweet Santa Penguin from Kitty Bee Designs. I like here how the image stands out and there is no need for design paper or similar.

My favorite embellishments are buttons. I LOVE buttons but I use more and more sequins. Because they are flat and that saves postage. How about you ?
